iPhone Bargains Abound as New Model Arrives

With the release of the iPhone 5, many are seeing drastic price drops in older models. Many older issues can now be found at bargain prices on eBay and Amazon is offering them as low as $200. For many people who have waited for a price drop, now is a good time to take advantage.   iPhone bargains are out there for the first time in a long time.  The question remains, is there going to be a major difference between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4?

The iPhone 5 will feature a 4 inch screen, 1.2 MP Facetime camera, 8 MP digital camera. In all actuality, these are only minor improvements over existing models. Yes, your display is a half inch more but the camera is the same as the iPhone 4S. There have been some improvements made to the Facetime camera but most people will never use this feature.

Even with brands outside of the iPhone, very few people use the video conversation option. If your only concern is being able to use the latest apps and being able to work on the go, then a earlier model will be better for you. In all honesty, there isn't really a good reason to purchase the iPhone 5 unless you have the expendable income.

For a bargain shopper, there couldn't be any better news. If you are currently out of contract, many cell carriers are offer drastic discounts on the iPhone 4. According to Sprint's website, the iPhone 4s, can be purchased for $99 with a new two-year agreement. That also includes those who have available upgrades as well.  Recently, Best Buy offered a $49 price for the 4.

There is also the used option for those who don't want a contract phone. If you are going this route, think about purchasing from eBay or Amazon but read the listing to make sure you know what you're getting. You may not be offered the same protection you would be if you were buying it new. Apple Care doesn't cover phones that haven't been refurbished by them.

Your best bet might be to buy a new phone vs. buying one that's used or refurbished. If you do decide to go this route, be sure to check the seller's reputation to make sure they are reliable.

Now is the perfect time to purchase an iPhone. If you have been holding out, you can now get one that will serve all of your needs and it won't be outdated. You should be able to easily find iPhone bargains to get you into the world's most popular hand held device.  You can often get a great deal on an iPhone 5 or accessories on eBay.  Click here to see what's available.
