I have regular 4 and have no complaints. Good free option.

Is that worth it? a 5 is an extra hundred more, and just a regualr 4 is free. im the kind of guy that will only use it for browsing, texts, an ipod and camera, so I dont need something that does EVERYTHING. Worth dropping a hundred on this weekend? Or are there better droids I should be checking out....its Verizon by the way

There ya go. Don't worry about any of the "4G" talk if you're in the Pittsburgh area. Pittsburgh does not have 4G in place and won't for a quite a while so don't listen to any **** they might try to feed you on that... I probably go 4S just because I love siri, but the 4 for free isn't a bad option either.


Uh, att has LTE in the city and as far south as canonsburg, West as Robinson...

Best Buy is selling the 5 at $50 off. Not sure of details, but you might check.

Thanks BlackJack. My contract isnt up its an early upgrade (i'll have to pay a 30.00 fee) as far as I know you can't go that route thru best buy.

In my experience, if you are a decent customer, call and complain about the 30$ fee and they will waive it for you

I just might do that. A good friend is a manager there too. I had a perfectly good phone when I reupped last year, but the charge port completely crapped out. Well they were happy to replace it, only problem was they were out of my same phone. I sat in the store for an hour and a half while they searched to find me an avaiable comparable phone. Well that phone has been turds ever since so I may just say I wouldnt be upgrading if you didnt give me such a crap replacement phone.

if thats the case, and you bought a newer phone or one with iOS6, chances are your itunes needs updates.

Verizon refused to waive the $30 activation, jerks. Tried to tell me they always charged me that, must have missed it in the 11 years I've been a customer.

The activation fee has been that way for a few years. They were phasing that in when I left the company back in 2010 or so. It's BS, but yeah.
