Replace iPhone 4S for $50 under Applecare? My iPhone 4S (32 GB, Verizon) is 2 years old. Works well, except that the battery life seems to be a little less compared to when it was new. Covered under AppleCare (expires in 10 days), an Apple Store rep did a battery test indicating that battery capacity is 80% of normal. I can replace this for a new 32GB iPhone 4S under the AppleCare warranty for $50. My Verizon contract also ends in 10 days. My choices are: 1. Get new iPhone 4S for $50 from Apple, continue with Verizon (no contract). 2. Buy new iPhone 4S (8GB) from Verizon for $0.99 or Apple for $0 with 2-yr Verizon contract. Then sell my current phone for $110 to Gazelle or maybe $150-$175 on Ebay. 3. Buy new iPhone 5S (32GB) from Verizon for $299 w/2-yr contract, sell old phone as above. Verizon LTE service in our area is OK (not great, but OK), service at our home is bad but I have a Verizon network extender for in-home calls. With T-Mobile shaking up the competitive environment, I would like to avoid a new contract for now, maybe wait to see if T-Mobiles LTE buildout progresses or if Verizon responds to the competition to lower plan prices when you go off contract. Option 1 is basically a temporizing strategy - wait to see what happens over the next few months. Option 2 pays me a little to offset Verizons contract terms. Option 3 offers a new iPhone 5S but locks into a contract. Any thoughts?
