I didn't think the pricing was any different with Verizon. Am I missing something?

I'm holding out for the next generation with hopefully a much larger screen. I have an iPhone 5 now and don't feel compelled to upgrade since it has the same screen. A larger screen on the 5s would have made me though. More so than any of the features that Apple decided to focus on.

Holding out for the iPhone 6 as well. Pretty much for the same reasons as Epic Ed.

I for one don't want a larger screen. I like the fact I can drop my bare iPhone in my shirt pocked at work and not have a bulky object to deal with. If it's slightly larger fine but if it's like the Samsung and other droid beasts I see I'll pass.

I don't have/use any iphone and only used a very old primitive nokia cellphone long long time ago. Now feel time to go mobile, especially considering need for emergency situation when away from home. Thought iphone 5s is a wonderful start. I incline to buy an unlocked from Apple with T-M service. Since I won't go web much with iphone (too small screen for me), a small data plan will be my choice. Pardon me here for I have no experience using an iphone, I am hijacking this thread to ask some basic questions: Can I and how to turn off cellular to prevent from accident web data usage (save for emergency or ??), but still able to make/receive calls? I know I'll be able to use wifi at home for data transfer to avoid data usage (it's my plan to do all data at home with wifi). My concern is when I am in mobile. I want to use my phone to communicate/talk and for all other functions (especially take pictures, video..) without incurring any data transfer. Am I making any sense? Thanks for help.

In Settings you can turn off Cellular Data. Additionally within the various application settings you can also disable, on an app by app basis, the application itself from using cellular data, although not all applications have this setting.

I have most apps that allow me to set to only allow data over wifi and I leave the Master Cellular Data enabled as this allow it to automatically check for email etc during the day.

My cellular usage is pretty low by doing this.

I just wonder if I order one from Apple, will Verizon charge me a upgrade price?

I have the IPhone 5 now

Does anyone know if we can order the 5s online at midnight and pickup in the store (Apple Store)? ...or do we have to lineup early in the morning if we really want a 5s on release day?
