Clearing out the iPhone12's, making room for the iPhone13.

I guess a lot of places will be doing this?

Yeah 13's only major difference is 120 Hz, they didn't even spend the usual 30 minutes talking about the chip because it's not a huge upgrade.

They still offering the $X00 cash cards with the phones? Was it $300 last week?
Does that apply to buying the phones upfront or only on the month-month payment plan? Anyone compare the two methods for cost difference of paying upfront with the new costs/Costco gift cards?


Let’s hope this forum stays useful and isn’t bogged down too much with useless opinions on how they don’t like iPhones/would rather by another brand…

These are computers with a phone app.

I remember buying a $2000 Compaq Presario 266mhz, upgrading to 128mb ram, buying a 60gb hdd for $500 and waiting 3 days to download a VCD on dialup. I can’t wrap my head around how small, powerful and cheap computers are these days.

Costco cash cards are only if you sign a plan, similar to how you get Walmart cards at Walmart with their wireless booth.

The majority of the case, you're better BYOD and getting one of those $45-$50/month 10GB-25GB plans (details can be found here on RFD). The subsidized/cheaper phones with plans have similar "specs" but often at a higher monthly plan cost.

I think where signing up for a plan could work out better is if you are willing to sign up for an "older" generation phone (11, 12, etc), these deals come and go and IMO happens more frequently with Freedom.

They might be late for a lot of things (this stupid notch and 120Hz absent from non-Pro iPhone 13), but I don't think they have anything to be embarrassed regarding CPU/GPU performance. Am I wrong? (real question).

Exactly, this is the difference. Phone's are much more capable devices than they were in the hey-day, and the cost reflect that. Can companies be greedy? Sure. But I'd say the prices have moved in line with the technology, for the most part.

If it helps, similar reason why you'd spend $600 on a vacuum. They know they can charge that much and people have accepted that's the price.

I really like iPhones, but like someone said, the prices are ridiculous. Now everyone is selling their phones for over $1000. Do phones actually cost that much to make? Or is the price simply to establish the brand as "luxury"...

What's Motorlola? Stationary phone they used to mount in '85 Cadillacs?? Smiling Face With Open Mouth
As steep as it sounds if you think what today's phones can do , the price is not bad. I know people who used to pay over $3K for 1GB memory desktops and then struggled on AOL dial up to load the webpage. New cellphones leave those in the dust.
