Big decision! I'm ready for an iPhone but...I can't stomach a plan. I don't actually live anywhere--I travel constantly. Over the past 2 years I've traveled non-stop, living in dozens of different countries. Currently I'm in North America, and may be here for up to a year ,but not necessarily all in one place. So you can see why I do not want a phone plan and prefer an unlocked phone. I currently use a pay-as-you-go dumbphone. It's cheap but I can't live without an iPhone any longer! What should I do? Get the new iPhone on a plan? What about roaming fees? Yikes! I prefer the new phone because I want it partly for the camera (my only other camera is bulky). The new camera sounds great. Otherwise, I just want it for basic web surfing, email, social networking, and the occasional photo upload. I'll rarely make phone calls on it, but I might use text messaging every now and then. After holding off so long for the upgrade (I've been waiting a long time--never had a smartphone at all!), I'd feel really disappointed to buy the old iPhone. There is also the issue of less initial cost outlay when buying a "subsidized" phone. But that might come back to haunt me if I can't get out of the contract, can't unlock the phone to travel, and am paying roaming... any thoughts??
