    Hi all, I am new to the forum and have a strange situation and question for you.

    A little backstory....
    I am an iphone user. I tried android for a few months with quite a few devices, but always find my way back to an iphone. I sold off my 5S before the 6 came out, only to buy an android (oneplus one), and hated it, lol. I then sold that and got a crazy deal on an excellent condition green verizon (unlocked) iphone 5C ($125). I have been using that for about a month now, and I am getting an itch to buy the iphone 6. I liked the size of the 6 plus, but one thing I remembered was how hard to carry and pocket the oneplus was which is about the same size as the 6+... I seemed to always be looking out for it, lol and it took up alot of my pocket. So, I really think the 6 would be the sweet spot for me personally. I watched about all of the videos lately on youtube about comparisons/specs/etc, and can't really figure out what way to go. I dont game at all on my iphone, mainly just talk and text, very basic use really.

    I am on Cricket (ATT GSM Prepaid), and get LTE with the 5C, and great signal reception, compared to a few android devices I had that rarely ever stayed in the LTE range, and mainly just got H or H+ or even 1 bar of service to no service... (Nexus 5, OnePlus One)....

    Another point I have to make is that I dont want to sign any contract or edge/next program due to my current billing situation. There are 4 lines on the cricket account and we each get 1GB of data (Use Wifi 90% of time and barely use 1GB a month), unlimited talk/text for $100 per month. The bill is paid by our job for us on the plan. So its a free service, and thus no need to open a contract or have to pay a cell phone bill.

    I know its just a matter of personal preference, and that its basically just the cost of the phone that would have to be considered, but given the situation, is it a justifiable to spend or upgrade? Especially since I only basically have $125 invested in the 5C, and can easily sell it for that any day of the week. Making the Iphone 6 Purchase only $575 I would just appreciate any little insight that you may be able to give me. Thank you for your time, and sorry if it was a long winded post.

    You won't notice that much of a difference if you are coming from a 5c to an iPhone 6.

    If you are going to the Plus, that is worth the upgrade.

    Save your money and stay with the 5c and wait for an "s" model or the following year.

    If all you do is talk and text might I recommend the nokia 3310 (Or any other non smart phone for that matter)?
