between selling your 5 and getting a 5C, you probably will pay out of pocket a bit to quite a bit or at the very best break even. The c is maybe for cheap, color, china, but for you, it's just plain childish. Assuming internals are the same, why would you do that? How would that be beneficial to you in any way? Even if you love the look of a blue plastic iPhone. Just throw a plastic case on your 5 and call it a day. Less trouble than touching the contract, buying/selling, paying out of pocket. I know most 5 users won't, but to even consider it seems a bit silly to me. And vain And then complaining Apple doesn't innovate, while supporting such a lateral if not downgrade move in Apple's release. I understand why they do to tap into the more price-sensitive segment and asia, but 5 users don't seem like a major part of the market they're appealing to. The best democracy/forum for profitable companies is where your cash is the equivalent having a voice and shaping the way they go about business.
