The 6 may be the one to get me to upgrade.
I didn't have an iPhone for the longest time but the Mrs insisted as the cars got older, she felt safer with one, etc etc etc. So got myself a beat up, hand-me-down 3GS from my sister a few years ago. But since no one in Canada offers pay-as-you-go cards that don't expire (currently subject to a class action lawsuit in Ontario Superior Court because no other gift cards expire here legally, Consumer Protection Act) we'd put $100 on it yearly and then have Bell steal the remaining $70 worth we hadn't used at the end of a year, we shut that one down. My oldest son has his own 4S.
Me? When my company said they'd pay a bit of a bill I finally went with Koodo (smaller indie carrier) I jumped on the cheapest plan and phone I could, an 8GB 4. 1GB of data and unlimited calling was only $45/month, offset by work, which is more than enough, considering I use about 50MB of data each month and 100 minutes of calling time. Plus there was no monthly contract and over two years I own the phone now (part of your $45/month goes to buying the phone). So, I'd like to get a 16GB 6 (transferring that plan to the new phone) for myself, and then pass the 4 down to the Mrs with the cheapest non-data plan (I think about $20). The youngest boy will get the 3GS for emergencies and letting us know where he is when Bell loses the lawsuit (which they will) and are forced to make pre-paid monies non-expiring.
Koodo won't have the 16GB iPhone 6's in until early October I suspect, but you never know. So, yeah, I'm finally upgrading. The 6 will probably seem like a rocket compared to the 4.
