I am a Social Security recipient, on a limited income. I have the LifeLine Phone the government provides for free to the really poor. Provided Lifeline handset is Android that is is set for which the Carrier was Assurance Wireless, cover for T-Mobile, now Sprint. Coverage in my area of east Texas for Sprint is so bad that Sprint will not (knowingly) sell phones to my town. Verizon coverage is great. Right now Wal Mart is running a sale on new Iphone 6S, and Plus. I can buy a 6S Plus with 32 GB RAM for two hundred that is locked to Straight Talk, one of whose carriers is Verizon. I gave up using Straight Talk before because the $42.00 for thirty days was really expensive to me. That would be about five hundred a year when my income is less than a thousand a month. I see Apple no longer sells refurbished Iphone 6 anything. I am a big fan of Apple Care. I am guessing that Apple Care would be a waste of money. If I break the phone, replacing the screen is less costly in the private market, and if the Wal Mart sale went on, I could buy a new Iphone 6 for nearly the cost of the repair. I used an Iphone 5C for a year, that someone else paid for, so I really appreciate the IOS. BTW-I used an Otterbox Defender case on the Iphone 5 c. When I took it out of its case after a year plus of use, the handset looked brand new. Android seems to be to be created from the ground up to spy on me. Wasting a lot of my resources for their stuff. I am on my fifth handset from the LifeLine Service. I got some stories about that. Apple Chat suggested that I call an Apple Store about EOL (End of Life.) Gee if I only had a phone that worked. I have the first Ipad, which came to the point it would no longer get online. Still has a beautiful screen, not what is available today. So I do understand what EOL can do to my plans, budget.
