If you're willing to wait a couple of months, you can also consider a Microsoft Windows Phone. I checked out the new HTC Windows Phone smartphone and Nokia's Lumia 900 at CES. And I really liked these phones. Windows Phone is an intuitive and easy to use platform, so I think it's worth considering. And both the HTC Titan II and the Nokia Lumia 900 are good smartphones, with advanced cameras and other hardware goodies that rival the iPhone 4S. But since you already have an iPhone 3G, and it seems like you like the platform, I'd suggest just sticking with Apple. All your contacts, music, and most importantly all your apps will load easily onto the iPhone 4S. If you switch to the Google Android or Windows Phone platforms you will have to re-download and even repurchase your apps. Most of the apps you had on your iPhone, will likely be available on Android, but you may not have the same luck with a Windows Phone device.
Even though Microsoft is quickly adding more apps to its marketplace, the company still doesn't have the same exact catalog as Apple or Android, For example, Words with Friends, the popular online Scrabble-like game that ngp advanced case for apple iphone 7 - aqua everyone is playing these days, isn't yet available on Windows Phone, It will probably be on Windows Phone at some point, but it's not there now, So to summarize: if you are in the market for a new smartphone right now, I think someone like you, who is already a happy Apple iPhone user, can't go wrong with the iPhone 4S, Also you will have a lot of fun with Siri, but just don't expect too much of her just yet..
Thanks,James. Dear James,The first thing you need to understand is that your U.S. voice minutes and unlimited data plans don't apply when you're traveling internationally. So the phone calls you make and receive and the data you use while on your trip will not be counted toward your monthly total for your regular AT&T plan. Instead, you will be charged per minute when it comes to voice and per kilobyte or per megabyte for data. As you have probably heard, those roaming charges can be hefty. And people have been known to rack up massive bills while talking, texting and surfing the Net on their wireless devices while abroad. To make sure you are keeping your costs in check, you should sign up for an AT&T international plan before you leave home. You can access information about AT&T's international plans on the Web. Check to see if the countries you are traveling to are included in AT&T's international plan. And then you'll just sign up for the plan right before you leave for the trip.
The way these plans work is that for voice services, you will still pay per minute, but with the international plan, the per minute rate will be reduced, For ngp advanced case for apple iphone 7 - aqua data, you will sign up for a certain package for a flat rate, For example, you could get 50MB of data for $25, And each additional 10MB you use, you'd be charged another $10, AT&T's international plans go as high as $100 for 800MB of data, Remember that you will just be signing up for the international service just before your trip, since you don't need it until you are abroad, If you want to use the full 25MB or even the full 800MB of data that you're paying for as part of this plan, make sure you wait until your billing cycle ends before you cancel the service..
If you cancel the service in the middle of your billing cycle, AT&T will prorate the cost of the service as well as prorate the amount of data you can use. So you could end up spending more if you exceed the monthly data cap on the International plan. Your iPhones and iPads will allow you to track usage while you're away, so try to keep track of how much data you are using so you don't go over your limit. Since it's very easy to exceed these caps and those charges can add up quickly, I would use data service while you're on vacation much more judiciously than you do at home. If the cruise ship you are on has Wi-Fi or there is Wi-Fi in the cafes when you're in port, I'd use those networks as much as possible. Remember that when you use Wi-Fi, you are not using any carrier data. So all that usage isn't counted toward your monthly total.
