Let me preface it thusly. I'm a college student with just a part-time job, making about $100/week. due to school. I want to buy an iPhone, but the iPhone 6 is pretty much out of the question. In Canada, we don't have contracts, but we do have "2-year agreements" where you can buy a certain amount extra to your phone bill to buy the phone you'd like. I could very well buy the 5c outright at the low cost of $360CAD, but I have the option to pay nothing upfront and add $15/24 months to my plan. I don't plan on doing much on it besides texting, snapchat, etc. The bulk of my app usage would be on my iPad Mini 2. So I don't suspect the 8GB will be a problem. Correct me if I'm wrong. Do you think the 5c will last me for the next 3 or more years? In terms of it being supported. As it is, I can not get the 6 because I don't have the right phone plan. Currently I'm paying $30/mo. for 100mb data, 200 minutes of calling time (which I don't barely use anyways), and unlimited messaging. I'd have to pay $60/mo. AND THEN some for the tab system. So that wouldn't work out. Thanks.
