Should I keep the iPhone?

Asked by susanc (16112points) June 20th, 2008

I just inherited an iPhone. I never wanted one. It won’t cost me anything except a huge upsurge in my wireless bill to switch to it. But why should I? I never text, and i can SEE what the weather’s going to be….

it says it all in your topics- sell it and why bother? If you don’t need one, you don’t. Plus you’re going to have to pay more for features you won’t use.

My roomate didn’t think he would use all the features and so he wanted an iPod touch. That is, untill he saw my iPhone. If you don’t think you’ll like/want/need it, then sell it. Then you got some sweet dough to spend on whatever you want.

Just for the record though, iPhones RULE!

I agree with randy! They do rule. But I’m
still trying to get over the fact that the new ones are going to be so cheap compared to how much I paid! :(

But yeah, if the only interesting feature to you is seeing what the weather would be, then I don’t think you’d want one. But who knows, maybe you will? Okay I’m rambling.

The iPhone has made my life so much easier with on the go access to so many things; email, stockmarket, fluther, security cameras, google, maps… I can document over $40,000.00 in profit just from having all the instant access on hand 24/7. I can’t imagine not having an iPhone on hand during my normal work hours.

thehaight- the cost of the new iPhone will be made up and surpassed with the new increased at&t service fees. I am going to upgrade anyhow.

nonono thehaight, the new iphone is not cheaper by any means O2 a british company is giving them out for free for a service plan, sounds great right? Lets just say that service plan is about 1,200$ or something near that yearly.

Some random store I heard about is selling iphones unlocked since they don’t have AT&T, or whatever company apple is with there; the new 3Gs cost around $800 base price.

@susanc; upsurge in your wireless bill? Do you mean you don’t have your own internet, or .. what? Sorry I just don’t know who at home ‘pays’ for wireless when all you have to have is a router and a ground wire cable or dsl or whatever it may be.

I am an iPhone user and I have to be. It is now the phone that my work uses. I do have to say that I don’t get the hype that is surrounded by the iPhone. It still lacks in so many features aside from Internet use.

@Susanc: I am with you. A very nice life is possible without the iPhone.. Paint the roses or blackberries or seals or boats in the harbor. Write your memoirs; tease your cat.

@XCNuse: I mean my AT&T bill.
I’m using a satellite dish for my internet service because dial-up is my only other option here.
@gail: Painted my way through my misspent youth. Hoping for something more connected.
