you shouldn't do any contract. buy your phone outright. it's cheaper in the long run.got a question....i have a shatty galaxy s2 phone with sprint. i have 6 more months of this crappy phone and service OR i can cancel right now for $120. I then want to get the iphone5 with verizon, $199 for 2 year contract...should i do it?
and if so, is the iphone5 worth $199 more than the iphone4, which i can get for free? or compromise with the iphone4s for $99?
Is it normal for a brand new cell phone battery to be completely dead when you put it in your phone and turn it on for the first time? I've been having issues recently with my phone battery dying extremely fast. Today I woke up (after having my phone charging all night) and it was at 100% , within 45 minutes it went from 100% to 2% and shut off. I went to buy a brand new cell phone battery and when I put it in my phone, my phone went through the start up process which lasts about 3 minutes and then after that it showed the battery at less than 5% and the phone shut off...so now I'm charging it but I'm wondering is this normal for a brand new cell phone battery? It has to be charged first?
Also how can I tell if this is my phone instead of my battery?
that looks like a double screwing. you are paying full retail for a phone that's two generations old, and you still have to agree to a two year service plan.If it says that it's an "Outright Purchase", that means it's not under contract right? What's the difference between Outright and Prepaid?
I'm looking at an iPhone 4:
But it says: This plan is valid when you activate your phone on new two-year voice or voice and data activation with a minimum monthly rate requirement.
