I was out and about all day in the 45 degree balmy weather with the contrast of still lots of snow on the ground and decided to pop into Verizon to talk about upgrading to an iPhone 6s. Not the 6sPlus – too big for my delicate little hands.
My contract expired a while ago so I am on a month to month plan and am eligible for an upgrade. As I gave the employee my cell phone number, he told me he would be unable to give me an upgrade because I had a past due account……..of …………….drum roll please…
I said, oh I know that and when I got a bill for it last month, it said right on the invoice DO NOT PAY. So I didn’t. I’m not sure how the 36¢ accrued other than I misread the bill.
ANYWAY, the kid helping me had to call his boss to override the system to continue selling me the upgrade and then we got onto the business at hand – should I buy the iPhone 6s?
What really prompted the entire thought process of buying the 6S was that the Otter box for my 5series is broken and good luck finding ANYTHING for the 5 series. The 5 is so yesterday.
We hashed out the numbers, got to a plan that is about what I spend now per month, what I’d have to pony up for the phone ($299), then when I said okay, he said, Oh, we don’t have any in stock now except the gold color. No thanks.
Q: I don’t know about Verizon’s pricing of the iPhone6s. They call the retail price $799 but right on Apple’s website, their retail for the 64gb is $749. Hmmmm. Add that difference to the one time Verizon activation fee of $40 when buying a new phone, and there’s $100! That’s not an inconsequential sum of money. Should I buy it at Apple?
I’m not sure how much I’d gain by buying the 6s. They said it has a better camera but that doesn’t help me much because I’m still the user and I take LOUSY iPhone photos.
Long story short(er), maybe I’ll just shop around online for a new cover for the old 5s and be happy.
Thirty six cents for your thoughts! 🙂
