The truly sucky part apart all this is JZ, is Tim Cook is breaking my heart, or he is lowering me into a sense false of security, or worse rumour sites LIE !!! SAY ITS NOT SO..

When you look at the invite, it has the map showing apples campus, the date is Tuesday the 4th and the time is 10 am ( which all correspond ) with the place, the time, and the date... but here is the kick in the guts... you have a 1 in the missed call list :angry:

What the hell does that MEAN... ONLY one iPhone ???

What happened to two phones, and iPhone 4s and a much rumoured iPhone 5 ... :whistle:

Not going to Happen, If jobs turns up and does it, he will simply undermine Tim Cooks authority, and the same will apply to the other guys, they will be kept very much out of site, Cook needs to stamp his authority and stye all over this show so people know he is the real deal.

I can't wait...... Ken who cares there may only be 1 iPhone... It better be a huge leap from the iPhone 4 though.

Clever reading into the invite... I wouldn't have thought that number 1 represented 1 iPhone. I need to learn Apples cryptic messages.

Also I think Tim Cook will do a great 'job' (he he)... At the end if the day it comes down to the hardware and software, not who presents it.... But I get where you are coming from Jamie... It won't be the same.

Now to work out how to get my hands in the new iPhone when I'm stuck in the middle of a contract with my iPhone 4. I wonder if Telstra will upgrade me free of charge... Probably not a hope in hell...

Maybe if I smile that might work.... Hmmm any ideas anyone without having to buy the new model outright??

Ebay the old one and buy a new one outright.

I think Tim will do a great job and Steve deserves a rest considering his condition. Good luck to both of them, I'll watch at some ungodly hour with interest.

Buy it outright, oop's sorry Brian, you see there is a benefit of purchasing outright.....

Headman, no camping for me just get up and buy online, it's pretty quick....

I'm going to try and get a free upgrade when it's released. I'll even commit to another 2 year contract with Telstra if they do that for me.

No harm in trying.

I still dont see the benefit in buying it outright. It costs around $800 and then you still have to go on a BYO plan or pay as you go. Ends up costing alot that way.

Prove me wrong Mick.

TL didn't you do the maths on this? Buying outright can end up cheaper?

There's a lot of ways to look at this BB. Buying outright gives you the freedom to switch carriers and plans when ever your want.

On the other hand I've got both my iPhones for "free". But obviously the cost of the phone has been spread across the two year contracts.

I'm not really sure which way ends up cheaper. I just think it's which ever way works for you. Normally I'd go for the phone free within my contract. But my wife needs a new iPhone as she has the 3G and it's painfully slow. She's happy to have my 4 and for me to buy a 5/ 4S.

As you say JZ the benefits of buying your new iPhone out right, you end up a mile in front, when I get a chance I will post up some comparative numbers, but as you say, it all comes down to your budget, and what you can and can't afford.

Well as JZ said Brian, you have the freedom, work out how much you have paid back for your iPhone on the plan your on, I am sure my outright purchase and the $20.00 / month it costs me to run the thing is cheaper.

I will recycle my iPhone 4 to Lisa, (lets see if she drops this one into the toilet), I will buy the 5 outright and the whole process starts again. No two year contract, no "plan" as it's a plan to take your cash. I will stand by my "plan"

as it's a better option for me. Brian go on another telco plan, do the numbers and lets see in 12 months if you have spent more than me! if I have, well break out the hats.....

I did the maths in another thread somewhere, and buying a phone outright doesn't add up. At least on Telstra.
You might not know it to look at me, but I'm pretty radical.

I was looking into this recently also. The only benefit of buying outright on T, at least for my budget, was a more generous cap at the same monthly cost - but since I doubt I'd use that much anyway it's a bit irrelevant. Beyond that I could see no benefit, apart from portability, on any carrier. You're not saving anything.
