I don't want to add another thread to the boatload of threads there are already, but I really have to ask for your opinions, because I'm at a dead end right now regarding whether I should buy an iPhone 4S. Let me start off by explaining my situation. I have a 27" iMac that my whole family uses, an iPad 1 that my whole family uses, an iPod Shuffle, and a very basic Samsung digital camera. My current phone is a very basic Samsung flip phone that looks very cheap, and feels very basic. In other words, it's not a phone that I'm proud of or that I would want to show somebody (not that this matters, I just wanted to say it). I have been "eyeing" the iPhone 4 for a long time (since a little after its release in 2010). If I ever do get a smartphone, it will be an iPhone. As far as my budget, it's not a big one, but I *can* afford the monthly plan that the iPhone brings, although it would make somewhat of a dent (nothing I can't handle though). I keep imagining myself traveling with it, and thinking how convenient it would be to have it. To have everything on that one phone - a camera, internet, etc. I love the thought of being able to pull it out anywhere and check my emails whenever I want. This is not something my current phone can do, and the iPad is not comparable. What is your opinion? Do you think I should buy it based on my situation? Would it be worth it for me? I know this is something only I can "truly" answer, but I would really appreciate your opinions. The monthly plans are expensive, but the convenience is a life-changer. Taking a separate digital camera, iPod Shuffle, and flip phone is not the same. Again, I'm not trying to validate or justify this potential purchase, I just want your honest opinions, because I myself am hitting a dead end regarding whether I should purchase or not. I really want it!
