    I am not spending $90 a month on a cell phone. I have no contract now so I can do what I want. Thinking of buying a used Iphone 4s instead of the new 5s and going with Boost Mobile, save myself a couple hundred dollars. Sounds like a good idear - any thoughts/advice would be appreciated :hat:The 5s can't be that much better than the 4s, especially to someone who has never had an iphone

    I bought a 3GS in June and signed up for Net10. $46 a month unlimited everything.

    4s doesn't have 4G LTE so if you plan on using data good luck to ya. If you are using it just to make calls and take pictures and surf the net on wifi it will do what you need.

    Just got the 5S. Love it. Had the 4 before this. The 5S is a thousand times better, faster, far better camera (like exponentially better), Siri and a ton more. Don't waste your money on the 4, 4S, 5, 5C. Spend a little more and get the most recent.

    I had the 4S...it's a great phone. If saving money is more important to you than being a trendy douchebag, go for it

    the 4s has Siri and a decent camera..honestly I can't tell the difference between my old 4s camera and the 5s camera. The only thing he will really be missing is true 4G (that's the big killer for me), Airdrop (but I doubt he was going to use that anyways), and the fingerprint lock (which is more just a novelty). As long as he upgrades to ios7 he should be good to go.

    Go for it. Go to WiFi when you need data and you're fine. Great way to save money and unless you're super critical of performance, you wont notice the difference. Upgrade when you can easily afford it.

    Needs vs Wants.
