My iPhone 3Gs is covered in Autumn Leaves & Butterflies.
Underneath the ZAGG Skin it's iPhone BLACK ...but who sez it's gotta stay that way?
ZAGG Skins are tough protective die-cut stick-ons they came in hundreds of different colors & patterns then over that I have a semi-flexible transparent iSkin that makes it "grippy" and bUmP resistant.
Like my Video iPod5 I can peel it off tomorrow and sell it as pristine any time I want to.

For only $100 less than a 5s, either under contract or outright, I don't get it at all for last year's technology in a plastic case if you're going to invest that much. I guess the difference between a $99 2 year plan for older technology versus a $199 plan may matter to some in a pinch.
Rather a conundrum . I mostly use my phone for just that. Phoning . Occasionally I use the Internet on it because normally I have my ipad with me.
I do use the camera more and more, but the camera in my iPhone 4 is lame. I have a hard time getting anything but junk with it. Okay to show folks stuff but its because they will accept any crappy image.
My son in law, also a photographer, has a IPhone 5 and gets some good pictures. Course he has kids so he uses it often and works at using it.
I'm hoping the new phone will be even better as a camera.
One reason I might get the new model is that I will give my old one to a friend of mine. I gave her my old iPad which she, naturally, became addicted to . I'd like to help her out.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
For us, it's that my wife uses the phone apps minimally... 65% phone calls... some email, and texting. ON rare occasion she might look something up on the internet... so her needs are very basic and minimal. Spending $199 for a 5S would be a big waste. The ONLY reason we're considering the 5C is that the difference between that cost and fixing the glass on her 3S (3-4 years old) is only $50 !! . . . and she can't use 4G (or probably iOS7) on the 3S. Otherwise, she's happy with the 3S. So for some, the 5C is a good choice for an upgrade. Too bad the 5C upgrade will extend her contract 2 years.
Yeah... I'm upgrading this time too. Still on a 4 and I can get $250 currently on Ebay.
Hmm. I have 4s that has been in an OtterBox Defender since day 1, and is still under standard AppleCare until June. Just looked and I see them going for well over $600 on ebay. Maybe because they are both GSM and CDMA?
Am I looking at it wrong? Is my search-fu out of sync?
My buyout from ATT is around $185. Looks like I can pay off the contract, get a new 5s under contract, and make a few hundred bucks.
No Curtis, you don't want it. Okay, I speak for myself but... I was actually quite happy with just my iPod and wifi where I could get it (free wifi in Japan is still pretty rare but..). Then my phone died and I let the guy at the store talk me into an iPhone when I just wanted a regular cell phone. Now I am on the damn thing all the time. I have really started to police myself to avoid this:
