Default I Pulled The Trigger on an iPhone 6

Actually three of them. Me, my wife, and my son.
Verizon offering $200 trade in value for each of our 4S phones sure helped.

Normally, I am not on the leading edge of technology. I prefer to be one generation behind at a fraction of the cost. I was planning on getting 5S phones but my wife convinced me otherwise. Aside from the sticker shock for the entire order, I think I will be happy with getting the 6.

Anyone else here have/getting an iPhone 6?

Not yet. My 5 is getting a little long in the tooth, so I've been thinking of upgrading. Did you go with the 4.7" screen, or opt to order the 5.5"?

I'm gonna wait a while. My 4S is still going strong but the wife's is on it's last legs. We'll probably upgrade to the 5S during the Holidays. Congrats on becoming so modern and hip!

4.7" for us, Bob.

I was planning to wait, too. But the $200 trade-in offer was too good to pass up. The 16G phone ends up being free. The 64G cost $100 more. Verizon also added an additional 3G/mo data to our shared data plan for no extra cost.

$200 trade in? This might sway me towards the new 6 or 6 plus!
Thanks, Peter!

I believe you have to make the iPhone 6 purchase by September 30.

If you aren't trading your phone into your carrier as some people do you can check out https://www.gazelle.com for what their offer is, you can also lock offers in so that you don't have to send off your phone (free shipping) until you have your new phone. I have used them twice and it's a breeze.

My gazelle offer is good until 10/15, they just pushed them out when apple pushed out delivery dates.

I'll be getting my 6 soon enough. On a side note loving some of the new features of iOS 8

I don't have to return the 4S phones until the new ones are delivered.

The new features of iOS 8 are cool. Even when used to torture your friends.

Congrats, Peter. I just moved into 2006 with a 4S a few months ago, but I am curious to learn more about the 6 and IOS 8.

Peter, did Verizon hit you up with a $30 upgrade fee? I see that on their website when I log into my account and go through the upgrade process. I might be better off just preordering, and then selling mine on CL.

I preordered the 6+ on the 12th and was told that it will be available mid-to-late November . AT&T is also offering the $200 trade-in value for my iPhone 5, which is a pretty good deal. I checked with Gazelle and they only offered me $165.

I upgraded to iOS 8 last night and am very happy with it so far -- it seems to be quite a bit faster for me. Still going through and learning about all the new features.

Android users will say you are at least one generation behind with the iphone 6, just not at a fraction of the cost.

Yep.
I don't do FleaBay or CraigsList.

No need to drag the Android/iPhone debate into an otherwise amicable thread.

Default Re: I Pulled The Trigger on an iPhone 6

I've been waffling on the 6+.
I was perfectly happy with my 4 when Weeze got me the 5. I wish it was a 32gb, 16gb just isn't enough space for all the crap I like to keep on my phone.
I'm installing ios 8 right now. Looking forward to seeing what's new.
AT&T says they'll give me $235 for my iphone 5. I'd far rather sell it on ebay or craigslist.
AT&T doesn't want to buy phones anymore, they want to lease them or have folks make payments. I can only get an upgrade on one line, and that's mine. I think the 6+ with 64gb is around $399.
I'd like to at least see one before I leap. The biggerscreen will certainly help with my failing eyeballs.

I like the new camera features, especially being able to adjust contrast by just sliding your finger up and down on the screen. My favorite feature so far is the job they did with predictive text, they did a slick job of it, much better than the old way.
