My contract is up soon for my AT&T iPhone and I’m trying to figure out what to do. Should I stick with it and get the 4S ? Should I take Fred Wilson’s advice in his post on the Samdroids and make the switch to a Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy S II?
What I really want is something like whats available in the UK and have a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) iphone available from O2. I hate being locked into a plan, being tied to a package deal that I don’t use, and being stuck with one carrier. Europe and the UK, along with Japan and others are way ahead in how they decoupled the carriers from the phones and plans. Who will bring the disruption to the US?
Looking forward to it when it happens, and when the same thing happens to cable TV via streaming and online video. That’s closer, but not quite here.
In the mean time, I think I’ll try to sell my old phone on Gazelle – there’s at least a little disruption there in the mobile phone space. Makes buying an iPhone 4s a lot more tolerable.
