    I bought my 6 on launch day. I was originally on the fence about getting the 6 or 6 plus. Today I bought a 6 plus with the intent of switching back and forth.

    Now I am wondering if I should sell my original 6 or keep it. Not as a spare but literally pop the sim for whatever phone I am feeling that day.

    Keep in mind that I do know that I have a problem. I am an addict. I normally swap phones like every 6 months. I buy more cases than a person should have. I also like both of these phones and if there was a 6S model that was out today... I would have just bought that.:confused:

    Sir, could you please make a donation to me? 10% of your money would be okay for my entire life.

    Anyways, just use one phone. Using more than one is not productive in most cases, especially if they are the SAME phone!

    I'm in the same boat. I bought a 6 on launch day and bought a 6 plus about 3 weeks ago. Haven't decided what to do yet but just used my 6 again for a few days and they both have their merits. I still think I prefer the plus but I do like the portability of the 6 better. While switching sims is simple enough, I don't think I care for updating apps on both phones. Deciding which one to back up on the cloud.....and so forth. It is cool to use whichever phone fits the occasion best.

    Agreed. No sense in keeping 2 of the same phone.

    I have both and use both.

    6+ for personal usage, and 6 for work usage only.

    You should get each in every color to accessorize your wardrobe.

    Both purchased here, also. Have been switching back and forth but th 6 Plus is kinda sticking due to the larger keyboard, it is likely the keeper.

    Selling my 6? Have not got the courage to do that yet. It is sure looking and feeling small after using the Plus.

    Keep both since that's your intention. No need to ask strangers.

    I guess I just need reassurance to just how crazy I am.

    Some points about iCloud are valid. Today I got the message that I my phone didn't back up because I am over my 20GB.

    Looking at resale now vs 6 months from now. I don't know how much more the phone will drop.

    I am also looking at actual expense for keeping the phone. It looks like keeping the 6 will cost me like $50-$100 at least in the next 6 months.

    You're not crazy (or not the only crazy person). I also own both the 6 and the 6+, 128gb, and I like to think of the 6+ as an iPad nano / good camera.

    For the record, I also own both the iPad mini 3 and the iPad Air 2, 128gb cellular. I usually carry 3 of my 4 devices randomly rotating through them. I've not been dissatisfied so far. ( I have lots of storage because I'm a bit of an app addict....)

    For cases and screen protectors.... Just get AppleCare+ and don't worry about it. I carry my devices "naked" except in cold weather where metal / skin contact is not practical.

    Right here
    Same here except 6+ is for work. Best of both worlds but to tell you the truth I'm happy to put down the 6+at the end of the day. Its just too big and carrying it around all day is getting way old....

    Unless you feel your lifestyle warrants both sizes, I'd also suggest also you decide on which is the better one for everyday use and sell the other.

    If you found the 6 getting you by daily since launch, don't keep the Plus and buy a different toy! :)

    You fit right in here, don't you worry! My wife thinks I'm insane....we cleaned out my home office in preparation for some new furniture this weekend to say she just shook her head when she saw me pull out all of my phones and set them on the desk lol.


    I agree with this.....if I could use Android for work, I'd probably ditch my iPhone 6 for something different.

    I could never get rid of my 6+ though. It's hands down the best smartphone I've ever owned - easily my favorite.

    Lol, happy to see I'm not alone. My mom tells me I can have my own call center with all the phones I have. :p

    Clearly you should tape them together, back to back, and text with your fingers around the back while playing a game with your thumbs on the front.

    I have both as well and am using both. I keep thinking I should stick with one, but can't decide which one to stick with.

    IF you bought 2 phones, I doubt you need the money. Id say keep them both, you can always use "manything" and leave the one at home set up as a live stream security camera. I still have and use my iPhones 5S and 5. Mostly as an iPod for running since the 6+ is a bit large for that, and the other as a remote for my smart tv and apple tv.

    In all honesty, I am also considering getting the 6 for my regular-use phone, but at this point Ill just wait for the 6S and get the smaller version >.<

    I know I couldn't use two phones. I've tried it in the past and one just sat there unused. For this reason I've talked myself out of buying a note 4 to use along side my 6 plus.

    However if you think you can realistically use both enough then you could keep them.

    Right now I have 4 tablets at home. Need to get rid of two I think. I'm a gadget hoarder lol

    If you don't need the money, then keep both. I still switch my SIM card back and forth between my 5s and 6.
