Why no iPhones? Oh, because people buy them at list price anyway.

Yes I think they are still selling to where they barley can keep them in stock. Why would they go on sale. I was counting on it for my son though. That sucks. I hope Best Buy or apple or sombody does a good discount.

Even if that’s true you don’t really need to bring out the trolls with the secon coment. Keep it civil. Maybe we can make a difference and have real debates. Like adults.

Old people buy iPhones because their old friends have iPhones. Children point their parents to buy iPhones so that they don't have to be constant tech support. I spent over an hour in a Verizon for my mom upgrading from a 5S to an 8. Almost every 40+ person went straight to the iPhones to check them out first(it's surprising they only have one display model of each variant). I am happy to help my mom with almost anything, but if her friends can show her how to use a feature because they have the same (or a similar) phone, then I'm all for it.

That’s just one type of people that by iPhones. And it’s a good reason. I have an iPhone and I can root or jailbreak either phone types. People come to me me for tech Suport. For both android or iOS. If you think only tech peopl get android you would be mistaken. They are both computers and if you where smart enough you could do anything you want with either. You are only constrained by either devices because you let them. Apple iOS is definitely easier to use and there is nothing wrong with that. They both pretty much do the same freaking thing.

so let me get this straight, in order to save $325 on the Google Pixel 2, I have to switch my plan from 3GB at $45/month to the unlimited at $75/month. thus, over a 24-month period, I'd pay $720 EXTRA. not to mention that I have to buy the phone in full at first - only to receive a credit over that time. last time I checked, $720 > $375, thus this is NOT a savings. I get that VZW wants folks to switch to their unlimited plan, but switching is not cost effective if the difference is that much.
