    I have two lines on my verizon account. Mom and me. I have an iphone 6 128gb jailbroken 9.0.2.
    Mom forgot her phone in the laundry basket which went for a nice wash RIP. She's eligible for an upgrade.
    My line is eligible for an upgrade in Sepetmber 2016, right around the new ones release.
    I gave my phone to her and plan on using her UPGRADE and getting a iphone 6s plus. Now what are the chances it will have ios 9.0.x

    per google;
    iOS 9.0.2 was released on September 30, 2015, to fix a major lock screen bypass issue. iOS 9.1 was released on October 21, 2015.
    The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were unveiled on 9 September 2015 (and released to the public on25 September)

    HOw would i find one/ needle in a haystack basically.

    Or do i go out and get a galaxy s7 edge, toy with it til august 2nd and get the note 7.
    Spending hundreds of dollars on the spot right now is out of the question. ill most likely pick up the phone with monthly paymetns. :)

    No real way to tell..... A lot of people will say the chances are slim to none, however there are a few more threads in which users describe 'getting lucky'. That was a few weeks back though. I assume the chances are even slimmer, but still possible. Hope it shows up with at most 9.1.

    The higher capacity models sell more slowly. You are unlikely to get a jailbreakable version at this point but your chances, however slight, are better with the 64 and 128GB models.

    I'd just forget about it if the 16GB model is what you are thinking about.

    If you want a jailbreakable phone, you'll basically have to look at eBay or Craigslist to guarantee you get one on 9.1

    There is a higher probability of a newer jailbreak than you finding an older fw iPhone. Just buy it and do the waiting game IMO.

    The nearest Walmart to me has an iPhone 6 plus 64 GB on display running 8.0. YMMV.

    I bought a 6s plus on Dec 31 last year from AT&T and I was floored when I powered it on because it was on 9.0.2. At this point it would be very hard to find one unopened that is under 9.2 or 9.3.

    At this point, I would wait on the upgrade until the 7 plus comes out. If you have an OLD device laying around, use that until then, or buy a cheap one on CL or eBay until then.

    Thought I would post in here to tell you guys how my experience is going with 9.3.2 on my iPhone 6s Plus. It's okay. Still wish I could customize it and have extra features but I have gotten used to it. Like using the pop futures while typing to go back with the cursor at a certain spot. Jailbreak was done by sliding along the letters.
    Miss my bloard, message customizer pro, removing battery logo and having only the percentile.
    Media hacks.

    So far, the Chinese version is working great. You have to "re-jailbreak" after a reboot, but not a respring. The directions are a little unclear, but there are updated translations that make it a bit easier now. I did mine early in the morning before there was as much info out.

    One thing that was not so clear, at least to me, is that when you "re-jailbreak" you open the PP app, then you must lock your screen. When you unlock it it, there will be a notification on your lock screen. You will need to slide to view that notification to re-jailbreak.

    When I did it on my Air 2 I didn't need to slid to view the notification, I just locked the iPad and it resprung straight away and was jailbroken again in less than 30 seconds.
