    Why have two phones? Unless one is for your significant other or family member or something.

    I was going to get the Plus along with my 6 but changed my mind as the 6 is perfect for me.

    Sounds a nightmare to own two phones, but I suppose with Continuity Apple at least make it possible... :p

    I wouldn't use both phones at the same time, but I would swap sim cards back and forth depends on whether I felt like a small phone or a large phone that day.

    I switch purses for various occasions. Why not phones? :D Just too bad I can't afford both.

    The sad thing is that some purses are more expensive than even the most expensive iPhone 6/6 Plus. I think the iPhone 6 Plus tops out just shy of $1000? Purses? Handbags? Easily multiple thousands.

    One would end up being used lots more than the other IMHO. Therefore not worth it.

    If switching the Sim were easier, maybe. If you could just login to iCloud and activate the other sim card in the other phone. And you know, if the 2nd phone wasn't 1K off contract.

    I remember about 15 years ago when I lived in Sweden you could get a twin-SIM from your provider. You could do outgoing calls from both phones but incoming would only go to your primary. You switched the primary phone by entering calling a #*-number combination on the phone you wanted to switch primary to. Wish we could still do that today...

    Those are also luxury items that demand a price based solely on the fact that some fancy designer made them. You are paying almost completely for the logo. Exclusivity as well. Multi-thousand dollar handbags ensure that you are one of very few people out there with one.

    I guess one could maybe argue that an iPhone is a luxury item, but it isn't what it used to be (and that's not a bad thing). It is much more the "norm" than a $3000 bag, for example.

    Yup. I mean there are some brands that actually give you $X worth, like it's handmade, better quality control, better material (finer grade of leather or whatever) and so forth. I know this is true for suits and the wool used and how the jacket is put together and all that. But many brands just slap a logo, double the price and say it was designed by person Y and it sells.

    Right... Which is why I said if switching the sim were easier, I'd maybe consider having two phones. It was a suggestion, not an actuality.

    There was a bit of joke/humor to my post hence the eek! smiley. I wish we could swap SIM cards like that too. Same boat.

    I've been switching back and forth the last few days, can't decide which one I like better. They both have their strengths...

    With the 6, you never even really think about it, it just works.

    With the 6 Plus, you are always dealing with the size, not necessarily bad, just always dealing with it. What pocket to put it in, what case, don't let it bend, etc. etc.

    Wouldn't a 6 and iPad mini or iPad be a better combo?

    Or just the 6+ as one phone/iPad replacement device.
