I need some advice. I got an offer of $500 for my white iPhone 4, 32GB (only two months old...I thought Apple was going to change the design, so I upgraded through Rogers). However, I do want to upgrade to the 4S, but my other line I currently have, I upgraded in May of 2010. I have a couple of questions.
1. Since it's been about 17 months, am I able to upgrade (I know I need to pay an early upgrade fee)? Is it $15/month or $20/month? The phone I have on that line is a BlackBerry 9700.
2. If I'm able to upgrade, can I go to the Apple store on Friday and HUP through Rogers? Or are they only selling unlocked phones at the moment?
3. Should I dish out another $350 for an unlocked 32GB?
pretty sure its $20/mo for blackberries and smartphones.
should eb able to at apple store, i have before.
if you NEED it unlocked, yes. I do, i travel every month for work, howwever most people, as mentioned just do ti to do it. It does help resale value down the line, but no where near what you will pay extra.
Lastly, you would be paying(i think) $319 + $260 + $35 for the upgrade = $614, if it is $20/month. a 32gb unlocked device through apple is $749. At that point, it is almost worth the extra to go to apple to spite rogers IF you travel every while and use your device while you're gone. I can easily save 200 per trip if i use my unlocked phone vs my locked one. You see, rogers jacked up the phone price by 50 adn then had a 'rebate' which in terms is not a rebate, because apple sets the prices points.. so, they are jsut charging more and offering a credit to look nice rather then actually offering any type of promotion as they have in the past.
