Just so we are on on the same page, your solution this fall is a 3 year old phone that will run iOS 7 horribly most likely, with no air drop, no Siri, no LTE, no HSPA+, limited carrier support and who knows what else...And this is preferable to an iPhone 5C because...
Unlikely. That's a lot of time and money, with no assurances, for a single market.That could turn into a billion dollar write off real fast. Too much risk, not enough reward.It's pretty clear, based upon the currently available information, especially packaging design, that iPhone 5C is iPhone color.4S is dead. 30 Pin is dead. 3.5" screen is dead. iPhone 5C is going to huge this holiday season. Probably bigger than the 5S, which is mysteriously quiet considering we are so...
In Apple's own words they are using low grade 6000 series aluminum alloy, when they should have used forged 7075 T6 with a hard coat anodize and Teflon coated.Had they done that the iPhone 5 would be far more wear and marring resistant and overall a more durable device.Generally I think the iPhone 5 is just a pain in the ass design that requires way too much exact precision to get right.
II have to agree. The iPhone 5 design is svelte but not practical in many ways. It requires quite a bit of precision to build correctly and defect free, but doesn't use an especially high grade aluminum or anodizing process.The iPhone 5C should be far easier to build right out the box, and wear better.
As long as there is an iPhone sales channel, I don't see Apple losing much sleep over this. And I would expect a massive brick and mortar shop as well. With the carriers not playing nice, a Russian Apple store will have blockbuster lines for iPhones.
    Think twice, because in reality you'll be paying the equivalent of $1,298 for an iPhone.   How...   Subsidized plan pricing + monthly phone payment plan.   AKA Double Dipping customers.   T-Mobile's Jump is much better.
Is this supposed to make sense, because I really hope this is not your best attempt to articulate something intelligent.
It wasn't his fault...The S-voices told him to do it...
I think this story is a bit of an exaggeration.   The biggest issue with Windows Phone is app support.   The hardware is competitive from Nokia, but MSFT is doing a complete piss poor job with their mobile strategy.    For example...the name...Windows Phone. It's a stupid freaking name. Calling it Tile Phone makes more sense. 
Sprint might be a player in 6 months to a year with their new funding and huge supply of spectrum.   Today...they still need too much work for me to consider switching back.    When Sprint has 90% LTE market coverage maybe then I will consider changing back to them.   For now, my AT&T HSPA+ is so fast and coverage so huge, there is no way in hell I am leaving AT&T for a half baked competitor...especially a CDMA competitor.
