I imagine everyone has heard of this upgrade programme. I have wondered if it is worth it. I know must replace my 5s sometime in future, but do I want to commit to a monthly payment and a new iPhone every single year? Is that really economical??? I have had my 5s for 3-4 years now, and it has worked fine for me. What is so great about getting a brand new iPhone every year unless one is "really" into tech? Received an email this morning from Apple about the upgrade programme. They listed the major carriers such as ATT, Sprint, etc. My carrier is Cricket, though. Cricket is owned by ATT, but if I had to sign up with ATT and pay their much higher rate to be part of the upgrade programme, I would most assuredly pass. Not worth it.
