iPhone 5 rumors send smartphone owners scrambling to sell phones."
Don't worry; when the iPhone 5 comes out the 4S and older will be broken... nobody really wants that 3.5" screen after all.
And as to the screen size, 3.5" is horrible. Apple has finally acknowledged it, their lack of keeping up on the times, by making a phone that steals Samsung's design -- thinner, bigger. My hands are tiny but guess what, I can type (thanks to a 3rd-party keyboard or two, something iPhones may never see)...
And if 3.5" is your goal, lower-specced phones are always cheaper... well, non-Apple ones anyway.
CON-Tracts??? We don't need no stinking contracts!
The iPhone is no longer exclusive to any carrier in the US, so there's really no reason for Apple not to sell an unlocked version of the iPhone 5. T-Mobile has also officially stated they're making their network compatible with the iPhone 5, for people who want to buy it unlocked, directly from Apple. I seriously doubt they would've said anything of that nature if they thought Apple was going to start locking them back to AT&T.
In any case, if you follow the financials of Apple or maybe missed that Sprint activated over 1 million iPhones in Q2/2012 alone (and let's not forget numbers from Verizon and AT&T) it cast some serious doubt about your stagnation statement.
Just cause users buy the stuff, doesnt means its not stagnant in design...
like u said u dont use phone much ,,then i don think u should buy such an expensive phone.
