Wow, Verizon is a pita. I've been grandfathered into AT&T's unlimited plan since the original iPhone. Every time I upgrade all I have to do is throw a fit over the phone or in the store and they just cave and give me the unlimited plan. I'd be pissed if they made me move to a metered plan. This most recent month alone I'm already up over 6 GB.

Although that said, AT&T's grandfathered unlimited plan isn't truly unlimited anymore. Anything over 5 GB is throttled down, to discourage you from using anymore data. At 6+ GB this month, I'd say I'm down to 3g/4g speeds even when my phone says LTE. Totally livable, but annoying none the less.

Re: The official iPhone 5S/5C thread

The good thing about Verizon's grandfathered unlimited plan is that you won't get throttled. I've used 8 to 9 gigs before, and my room mate hits 12 to 15 every month. They haven't said a thing yet.

Also, there is another loophole available to stay on the plan. I didn't have to pay full price when I last upgraded. They just used an upgrade on another line and then transfered the phone to my line. It may have changed since then, but it worked for me last year. Definitely worth checking out if you are on Verizon.

ive received the same message from AT&T about going over 6GB a month, but never noticed any slowdown in speed. not sure if you go over 10GB if they'll throttle u down, but in my case i havent experienced it so far.

I've been averaging 8 gigs a month now and they haven't throttled me.

Another rumor is that the sensor could have a NFC chip in it.

^Maybe I'm just that lucky then? Like I said, it's not really that bad, barely even noticeable.

Also, just sent a text to *639#, as it turns out I'm upgrade eligible.

um, wat?

Siri works very well for me. Surprisingly well. Better than Google Now or anything else I used on my Nexus with Jellybean. I actually use it everytime I want to set a calendar date, a reminder, a countdown timer, alarm, etc. It's faster than manual input.

Using my GF's Note2, an S3 in the past, etc., not sure how the S4 could be better. I think the only leg up that Android has on voice search is Google searches.

I kept the 4s due to not wanting adapters. It's plenty for me.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Yes, just give apple another $600 and it will work like new.
