    Poorme.
    I still have the 3gs. I may upgrade soon, though.
    I did download os6 to the phone, though.
    Have you tried the map yet?

    So it was YOU that ran your hook through my cable?

    Actually that phone would work, IF you could find a line that still carried dial tone. So many people have switched to cellular/VOIP that about 85% of lines are totally unused. In the mid '90s, most areas had a shortage of lines due to demand for dedicated dial-up modem lines. These days a phone man is as useful as a buggy whip maker...

    I'm hanging on to telco provided dial tone as long as I can, despite their daily FIOS mailings. I figure they've spent about $60k trying to sign me up.

    I don't know, you got it the first day it came out. Sounds a little fan boyish. I can't talk though, I had iOS 6 the day after it was available. I used to work for AT&T and when the iPhone first launched I said I wouldn't own one, I left the company an bought a 3Gs and now have the 4S. Apple does a great job with their devices and the platform is decently stable.

    You have to love the new Samsung commercial with the folks waiting in-line at the Apple store! If I worked in a place where I could use a cell phone, one of these "smart" jobs might be nice.

    I've had a Verizon basic cell phone for years because it has the best coverage in my isolated mountain terrain. I've always gotten the "free" phone upgrade every two years. My battery went bad in my old phone the other day and I went to Verizon to do my upgrade. The "free" upgrades were all some form of smartphone that required a $40 or more package. I don't want or need a fancy gadget that may or may not work were I go (just calling is iffy) so I declined. Instead, I spent $3.72 and got an OEM battery from E-Bay.

    Hits me as way too much in the way of sour grapes, not to mention why should they even bring up their competitors. Stupid.

    If you do get the iPhone 5/6, the aluminum is very soft, get a case ASAP. This is why:

    I have a Motorola something with no camera and a dying battery. It would be nice to get something with GPS and no camera, but that doesn't exist.

    But, I still like the Samsung commercial. I'm now going out to the garage and put some nice rounded edges on rectangular objects just to infringe on the IPhone design. It makes me feel good.

    I like the softer, pliable silicon cases over rather than the hard cases. Those phones are thin enough that they fumble easily. I've bounced mine a couple of times. The case has done a super job of protecting it.
