One more month to go!

Waiting impatiently for iPhone 5 to come out. Not because I'm getting one, but because Alex will buy it and give me his old iPhone 4. :P

I'm currently using an original iPhone, which has been surprisingly okay and functional, but it's getting to the point where it won't run a lot of apps (notably At Bat) because it's got an old iOS, the battery and/or power detection is getting really unreliable and sometimes the phone just shuts down even though there's a good amount of power, and most disturbingly, stopped detecting the SIM one day in Montreal. A reboot fixed it, but it's still somewhat unsettling.

I'll appreciate the improved processing power, higher resolution display (for watching video), greater capacity and uhh, oh yeah, 3G bandwidth (although EDGE has been sufficient for me so far). I'll end up paying $5/mth more than my current data plan. Well, the data plan will actually be $5/mth cheaper (as I'm going from unlimited to 200 MB) but it doesn't come with text messages, so I'll have to pay $10/mth for that. Boo. Text messaging is such a big rip off in the US.

I haven't actually upgraded yet but when I went to the site, it didn't give me the option of keeping my old plan through the web interface. :(

Aha! I looked at the options again and it's there as $30 unlimited. That's $15/mth more than the cheapest data plan, and I don't really use that much I think. But then maybe that will change! I'll hang on to unlimited I guess. It's not that much more and I don't use tethering, hehe.

man everything for cells is a rip off after Asia.

Yeah! I was just looking at cell phone plans in Singapore. Harrumph.

I was just going to make an entry including my excitement about owning an iPhone in T minus 1 year haha.

Which version are you getting?

Whatever's new at the time, used weirds me out if I don't know who previously had it.

Are you waiting for your contract to run out?

Yeah. Plus I figure I'll actually have the money to pay for the required data plan by then haha.
