My phone pretty much bit it over the weekend, so I got a new one. I had the S4, and my neighbor the IT guy said to get the S7, but the only one they had was in gold, so I ended up with the S7 edge. I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but it seems pretty cool. The wife went from a iPhone 5C to an iPhone 6S. She doesn't want the bigger, faster phone, or the newer model.

We got them at Costco, and switched from AT&T to Verizon. Even with the cost of the phones, we will be saving close to $50 a month, but went from unlimited data to 10 GB shared per month. But now I can use my phone as a mobile hotspot (I couldn't before - long story), and it's unlimited talk and text (we had minutes and text limits before). On top of that, Costco gave us each portable, rechargeable quick chargers for free, and the wife gets a $275 gift card to use at Costco and I get a $225 one. I like to think we got a pretty sweet deal.

Found this on a Photo website. Might interest you guys in the US. Not applicable to me Down Under.

SideNote:
I've installed iOS 10 (beta) a week or so ago and must say I really like it. Massive improvement in Maps and turn by turn navigation.
Even add public transport for my part of the world.

Wireless Earbuds?  REALLY bad idea.  So one falls out of your ear - its not attached to anything.  Its GONE.

I didn't even think of that. My $25 anker bluetooth phones would just fine and if I loose them, oh well.

The Woman's charge port on her s3 is done did busted so she needs a new one. It's nice to have a phone that you can swap out batteries. No mad rush to the store to replace something you can't live without that you were perfectly fine with not having 10 years ago...

Seing as for the last shuttle mission NASA was raiding craigslist for parts like 386's and shit your nokia flip phone can probably run the Apollo mission. I still am using my s3 as my main and the M8 as the game phone. I keep trying boom beach but PAD and Trials Frontier keep pulling me in.

Considering Apollo 13 almost got them killed, that's not saying much.

I guess I have the space to run that on my new phone now. Maybe I'll get a new tablet with my rebate.

Back in the day I had some big ass baggy jeans that would easily swallow a 40 oz. in each pocket

I remember those baggy pants. Mine aren't baggy, they just have huge freakin' back pockets.

Never mind pockets - my first cellphone was the size of a brick and weighed more.  I needed a shoulder bag to carry it around in.  Could never get a signal but it looked good in interviews I would just get it out on the desk and ignore it.

I never had a brick, and I can't remember if I had one before this but this was my first (or second) phone and it was awesome.

I think I still have my startac floating around somewhere. Probably next to my handspring, palm Tx and pager. I don't throw anything out.

I wonder if my pager is still in the closet somewhere?

Interesting read, since I'm still on a Model 5 and would like to upgrade without getting bent over. Have to go back & re-read that, it makes NO sense to me right now.
