Hi, longtime lurker. Here's my predicament. I have been involved in a protracted dispute/negotiation with my phone carrier about my cruddy android phone (Droid charge). The phone is a joke. The phone's battery lasts maybe 2 hours max, even with a new one installed, I can't receive calls from my wife for some strange reason, it's too big/awkward for me, and there are 1,000 other reasons why I'm fed up (battery life being #1). I've had the phone for almost 2 years, so I'm available for an upgrade in February. The problem is I need a new phone now. Luckily, my carrier offered to send a replacement phone. After some negotiation, they offered to send me a iPhone 4. The reason is that I told them I wanted the 5, but since it is a premium phone, they won't early-upgrade me. I thought the 4 would be a good choice since I will just upgrade it in February to the 5. However, the phone company screwed up by failing to send me the phone. It just fell through the cracks. So I called back, complained, and now they are sending another phone, this time a iPhone 4S 16gb. Now I'm thinking this might actually be the ideal phone for me. It's small. As a man I cannot stand bulky things in my pockets, and the iphone 5 is just too long and odd-looking to me. I also dislike the anondized look. Since the iPhone 4S doesn't count as an upgrade, I can use it without a case since if something happens to it, I will most likely have an upgrad up my sleeve. The iPhone 4S also wont affect my current plan (unlimited data) even though I'm now downgrading from 4G to 3G. Besides screen size, it sounds like the 4S has it all. I actually *want* a smaller screen. It will fit perfect in my tight jeans, or jacket pocket without being a nuisance. Now I'm thinking of rocking the 4S for as long as it lasts. I've never owned an iphone before. Am I missing something, or is the iPhone 4S still the go-to business man's phone? finally, I feel like the most important thing I'm giving up is being able to get my IPad 3 4G through the Foxwi wifi hotspot app. Your input is greatly appreciated.
