If you're looking for a good deal on an Apple iPhone, you can't do much better than Best Buy, where the 16GB Apple iPhone 5c is free with a signed two-year pact. The 32GB model is $79.99, again, with a signed two-year pact. The big box retailer is also offering the full-featured Apple iPhone 5s at a nice discount as well. The 16GB version of the phone is just $124.99 with a signed two-year pact...

I don't know how the 5C is doing but in my country ppl are hunting for the 5. They hate 5C because it is not metal

The C stands for crappy sales. Consumers aren't stupid. They see the 5C for what it is - a cheap POS.

Not when the choice is so cear-cut. The specs between the 5 and the 5C are identical save for the cheap plastic case. The ones who want multiple colors have already purchased their 5C. Everyone else (who wants an iToy but not the 5S or the 4S) wants the 5 package. Which is why BestBuy is clearing out remaining C inventory with the $0 sale.

Check prices on Craigslist for the iP5 in excellent condition. Supply and demand and what-not.

100% disagree about the "cheap pos" part, we just bought one for our daughter and it is a really solid, nice handling phone. It actually feels better in the hand than my wifes 5s. I believe the build quality of it is as good as any phone available including my moto x. also cant tell any difference in performance bewteen it and the 5s for the normal applications we use.

The question is, will the same people who cry that Android sells because it's cheap will now claim the same for Apple.

Not real interested in the 5c but if I was to get an iPhone it would be the gold 5s.
though this seems to be a good deal to the right cell buyer, maybe a younger teen.

Not sure why all the hatred towards the 5c. I recently upgraded my wife and myself to the 5c and have found it to be a very good phone. We had 4s iPhones which were also still pretty good but the 5c is faster, sound quality is better and the casing is actually very good. I recently got a Speck Candyshell for it and it looks great. It feels solid. No, it doesn't have a 64bit chip but let's get real, who exactly is doing quantum physics on their iPhone? the A6 at 1.3Ghz is plenty fast. While the 4s was good, I can definitely tell the difference in a good way. the 4/4s/5/5s are all metal and glass with edges that are 90 degree angles. I noticed that after awhile those angles become uncomfortable. The 5c has a curved edging that is actually comfortable to hold especially combined with the "plastic" which has a warm feel to it. This is not a cheap looking or feeling phone. It is certainly better than the other plastic phones out there.
Yes, you will need a case. The 5c is very slippery. Pick the Speck Candyshell you like and you're done. The case itself is solid and because it follows the contours of the 5c is very much like putting on a suit of armor. Very tough. We also have Rhino Shields on our screens. This is as much protection as you can get without making the 5c bulky.

The 5C is far ahead of the 4S, and not too far behind the S. You've got your wife, and yourself a very good device. +1

The difference of iPhone 5c to iPhone 5s is the plastic case that why it is cheaper none the less they are the same. They are truly amazing phones. By the way. You can get brand new iPhone 5s for FREE. Find out how to get one here ww w.freeiphone5snow.com
