    Would I look cheap if I get the iPhone 5c?
    Thinking about getting one but don't want to get made fun of in school by the "cool kids"?

    I think I would rather save the $100 and buy lotto.:D

    What color is everyone getting?

    I'm getting blue.

    I don't care what people think. I've always wanted a blue iPhone. I almost wanted to switch out the front and back glass of my old 4S with a navy blue cover.

    Both the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS were very popular phones and they were made of plastic, so whats wrong with getting an iPhone 5C (unless social status matters to you).

    Buy what you fits your needs and budget, not what will make you look "cool"

    White looks pretty clean if you're worried. Not sure why you are though, get the color you want.

    The 5C is a brand new iPhone, that frankly I find refreshing. If it appeals to you, buy the color you like and just enjoy it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being more popular than the less unique 5C.

    NO WAY! I am 32 and just pre ordered the white 5c for my wife and will probably get the same one next friday. Still debating between that and the S. I will most likely get the C (white) and throw a case on it for a bit more extra protection anyway. No one really cares when it comes down to it. I have a 7 year old daughter and if she got me a case with jewels and hello kitty stickers id still use it! LOL I am not trying to impress anyone. :D Enjoy YOUR phone!

    Yes, you would look cheap and poor.
    Better get the expensive one instead.

    Why would having one of the newest and most expensive phones on the market make you look cheap?

    Wow, it's just a phone. Just pick whatever you want, unless you want to duck tape that phone on your arm....

    You look cheap, because you rely on other people´s opinion instead of having your own mind and style.

    I'll cut you some slack because you're still a kid, but you should really not care what the "cool kids" think.

    Nope, when you get iphone 5 or iphone 5S and put a case on it do you look cheap :D. Get the color that you like and don't give a &^%% what others think :)

    Yeah I would stay clear of the less unique 5c, unless you don't mind looking cheap.

    I buy what I want. Period. I don't give a flip what others think.

    Although price is not an issue for me, I do evaluate for functionality vs price.

    This year for the first time ever, this hard core Apple enthusiast, that's bought every new iPhone to date, has pre-ordered a Galaxy Note 3. Slated to ship Oct 1st, it will be my first Android phone.

    Judging by my friends new Galaxy S4's I've tried, the Note 3 will be exciting, fun, and highly useful.

    Agreed. Find your own path in life and don't worry about what the "cool" kids say.

    I would totally not be your friend anymore if you had an iPhone 5c.... unless your sister was hot, of course.

    Would you be cheap if you drove a Hyundai?
