    I like my 5 as well, but I believe it is one of the battery recall phones. For example, I notice when it gets close to 45% a few minutes later it says 20% and then 2% and it needs a major charge.

    For the fun of it, I called AT&T customer service last night and ask if they would let me upgrade a few days early and the woman said, I would have to pay the early termination fee or go with the at&t next program, which was BS. I'll ask them again, when I walk into an actual retail store.

    Even though lately now, I been thinking of jumping ship and joining verizon. Both companies have the same price for usage, but verizon has better coverage specially when I go out of the city, like northern Arizona. Where I notice my bars on my phone are so weak and using other companies towers. Where my sister she has verizon and she has full signal whenever they are not in the city.

    Coverage-wise, AT&T is a very close second to Verizon in this area. The only place I never have decent coverage is where I work in Boulder, but that's a bad spot for all of them. In some places it reverts back to HSPA+ but that's not everywhere.

    My wife's battery is getting replaced tomorrow. Mine is good according to Apple.

    Given apple history, I think newer model will be worse cause they never bump battery power enough to handle new hardware and software features.

    I wonder, if they can do a battery replacement. Because I was thinking of giving my mom my old iPhone or she could probably get a free one, if you trade in a dumb phone and get a 8GB iPhone.

    It can be done. Co-worker did it because battery swelled enough to pop out her screen.

    Whether apple will or just give returned phone, not sure. They want it wiped before they take it. This makes me wonder if they would then just do a phone swap.

    I went to my local AT&T store and found out some info, which should help me next month to get the 6. The prices are not out yet, but I plan on giving my mom the 5, since it eligible for the battery replacement program. Since I do have some funds issue, I'll probably go with the AT&T Next program, pay nothing but the taxes and activation fee and the plus side, my monthly payment won't go up and in about 12 or 18 months, I could save extra $20+ extra a month.

    If the 32 GB starts at $299 I'll go with that since that's what my 5S and iPad are.

    One thing I would like and the only reason I would want to upgrade is more space. I would love the 128Gb as my 64Gb is almost full.

    I dunno. Do I really want to mess with an Apple product? :confused:

    If I had a lot of larger apps or the need to store documents and such on the phone, then a 128Gb would work. As it is I can barely fill 32GB on both devices.

    Photos and tunes are what is gobbling my memory.

    I sometimes use my phone when no data is available (in the states for instance). The cloud is not an option.

    Same here. Thanks to Music Match I'm fine with the 16 GB

    I use the iCloud for some stuff, but I have so many apps I can max out a 16GB iPhone, I prefer a 32GB.

    Is that a battery life decision?
