    Gave up the my iPhone 4s few years ago for a Samsung Galaxy S3. Now have the S4. I am digging the Apple Watch and figured why not. Ordered the 6+. I like the big screen. Kind of disappointing with only a 8 megapixel camera but I want to play with it in person before I judge it too much. If I don't think it's worth it I'll return it for the Note 4 possibly or Alpha. I think the only thing I'm going to miss a lot though is my free tethering I have with my rooted S4. I wonder how long it's going to take to jailbreak the 6. I do also have the sim adapter kit so I can easily swap my sim back to the S4 for certain needs but that is a bit of a pain. Anyway, hope the phone holds up to the hype. We shall see...

    Going with you like the goldfish in Jerry McGuire!

    I hold no ill will towards Android but I am deep in the Apple ecosystem and looking forward to the continuity features across my devices.

    I have always enjoyed the iPhone camera due to how quick it snaps pics and focuses over any Android phone I have used so looking forward to the IP6+ new camera features.

    I'll probably be going back as well, mostly for Apple Watch. Not sure when. Probably before the year is over.

    I actually want to play with the demo models of the 6 and 6+ before making any real decisions.

    be careful if you use that sim adapter kit!

    Yeah it's ironic - I'm not that bothered about the iPhone 6 but I do really like the look of the Apple Watch.

    I just ordered mine 1/2 hour ago and it will take 3 weeks or so to get here. Not a big deal. Funny though, people are going nuts in the iPhone forum about the shipping time... lol Patience grasshopper...

    I will. I found the best one I could find on Amazon. Best rated. I have also read about people screwing things up with these.

    Going back to Apple as well with the IP6. I saw cases of the 6+ and it reminds me of the LG Flex. I think it looks ugly with the long face...

    Moving away from the G3 back to Apple.

    If you're careful about how you insert the sim card, you won't have a problem. I've used two different brands from Amazon and switched quite a bit over the last 2 years and haven't had any issues.

    There are a decent amount of cases showing up on Amazon for the 6+. Apple's prices are a total ripoff anyway. I never order accessories through them.

    Going to give this one a try. At least have something to protect it when it comes in.
