iPhone 4S Pay Monthly Contract Deals Price Drop
The recently released Apple iPhone 4S which has now taken over from the iPhone 4 demands a high price when it comes to buying this latest Apple phone with a pay monthly contract deal, the iPhone 4S has now been available to buy for over 3 weeks and finally consumers are able to take advantage of a recent price drop.iPhone 4S deals represent some of the most expensive offers currently available when compared with similar handsets from rival manufacturers, on release this latest iPhone could not be ordered for less than a staggering ÃÂ£46 line rental per month with a 24 month contract deal.Now that the independent retailers are starting to receive their own iPhone 4S stocks they are able to put together bespoke deals based on their established profit margins which is now helping to reduce the price of the iPhone 4S with contract deals.The first discount came when the line rental dropped from the above mentioned ÃÂ£46 down to ÃÂ£43 for a free phone which was (and still is) offered by the 3 Mobile network, this then dropped again when Vodafone started offering the iPhone 4S free of charge on a ÃÂ£41 per month contract.The good news is that these pay monthly offers for the latest Apple phone are continuing to be discounted and the lowest line rental price consumers can currently expect to pay for a free iPhone 4S has now dropped further to ÃÂ£40.85 on the T-Mobile network.All of the above quoted deals are for a free phone which means they are not actually the cheapest offers over the minimum term contract length, these consumers have to pay an upfront fee for.The current cheapest deal for an iPhone 4S 16GB requires the customer to part with ÃÂ£309.99 upfront and commit to a line rental of ÃÂ£20 per month on the Orange iPhone 20 tariff, this equates to ÃÂ£789.99 total expenditure over the contract period compared with ÃÂ£980.40 for the previously mentioned best deal with a free phone at ÃÂ£40.85 over 2 years.Many consumers are choosing the deals that offer the iPhone 4S free of charge simply because of the cost of the upfront investment, with the current economic climate effecting many families spare income they are choosing to pay extra over the term of their contract agreements rather than part with a large cost upfront.
iPhone 4S - Smart Features for a Smart Phone
When it comes to innovating and creating smart phones and other technological devices, it seems that Apple is a company that paves the way for making smart phones that are very easy to use, and can make a very strong stand compared to its other smart phone counterparts. In fact, it is even speculated that the iPhone product line from Apple was adopted by phone manufacturers to come up with their own smart phone line.But amidst all the speculation and the scrutiny, Apple keeps on going. And the latest phone that they have launched has surely had an improvement as compared to the other phones before it. Just within this week, Apple has launched the iPhone 4S, the latest smart phone handset made my Apple.Apple iPhone 5 is the Apple iPhone 4SWeeks and even months before the Apple iPhone 4S was launched, there have been rumors going around about the features of the said phone. Well, avid iPhone fans can either be disappointed or pleased with the fact that the iPhone 4S is simply an improvement on the previously launched iPhone 4.Fans can be disappointed because amidst the rumors, there have been speculations of features such as a transparent display. But obviously, this is a ploy that spammers used in order to seep viruses into other people's computers through their emails. There were also a number of conceptual designs that have been presented by iPhone fans on the internet, only to find out that there were no changes in the hardware design of the said phone.However, iPhone fans who would like to get a new phone today can rejoice because the Apple iPhone 4S is just basically, an improvement on the features of the iPhone 4. For one thing, the processor of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S are different. Respectively, they are the A4 and the A5 processors, and the A5 processor offers a clearer and a faster processing experience for the people who are using the newer and better iPhone 4S.Another new feature that is the most noticeable on the iPhone 4S is the 8 megapixel rear camera, a first in iPhone history to have a camera with that kind of resolution. Considering the fact that a lot of people are pleased with the crisp images from the iPhone 4s 5 MP camera, people can now enjoy taking high-resolution images from the lens to the phone with the new iPhone 4S.The Price of the iPhone 4SGenerally, the price of Apple products, including the iPhone line can be more expensive than their non Apple counterparts. But considering the matters of mass production and cheaper manufacturing costs, Apple can now offer competitive pricing for the new iPhone 4S.The cheapest iPhone 4S unit is priced at 199 US Dollars, for a 16GB storage. The most expensive in the product line is about 399 US Dollars for a 64 GB storage. You can even get the iPhone 4S at cheaper rates, depending on the contract that you get with your service provider. Now that's competitive pricing for the leader in smart phone technology of today.
Cheapest iPhone 4S Deals Not Always The Best Offer for Consumers
The new Apple iPhone 4S in both White and Black colour schemes has now received new pay monthly contract deals that are officially the cheapest available over a 24 month agreement, however as tempting as these iPhone 4S deals look they are not necessarily the best option for general consumers.These new cheapest deals for the iPhone 4S 16GB cost just ÃÂ£20 per month line rental and are now available on the Orange network in the UK, for the line rental charge the consumer gets 50 inclusive minutes to use to make calls at any time of the day and to any mobile network (including landline calls), 50 text messages and 100MB of inclusive internet access.The iPhone 4S also needs to be paid for with an upfront price of ÃÂ£309.99 which makes the overall cost of the 24 month contract ÃÂ£789.99, this is significantly cheaper than the cheapest deal for a free iPhone 4S which is currently ÃÂ£41 per month and will cost the consumer ÃÂ£984.00 for the minimum term contract period.These may sound like amazing iPhone 4S deals with a total saving of ÃÂ£194.01 but this is a very deceiving figure, for those consumers that use their phone regularly the minimal amount of inclusive minutes, text and data could cause a real problem.Once these allocated volumes have been reached and exceeded the customer is liable for any extra usage which can soon accumulate over the space of a month, just 50 minutes of calls equates to less than 2 minutes of conversation per day and for anyone that enjoys using their iPhone 4S for web browsing, emails, downloading content or general updating of running applications the small 100MB of inclusive data may not be enough.The costs of calls outside the allocated volume is notoriously expensive with some networks charging up to 35p per minute, this is also true for data usage and one of the main culprits of using substantial amounts of data is by watching online video clips or movies, these are data hungry practices and can soon eat into and exceed smaller data allocations of the cheaper contract tariffs.The advice is simple, whenever consumers look to buy a new mobile phone they should always try to match their current usage requirements as close as possible to minimise any extra charges for exceeding their tariff limits, this is one reason that a more expensive deal for the iPhone 4S is proving the most popular of all.This is offered by the 3 Mobile network and costs ÃÂ£35 per month line rental, for this the consumer can enjoy a healthy 1GB of data usage, 500 inclusive minutes of calls and 5000 text messages every month with an upfront charge for the iPhone 4S of ÃÂ£49.00, although the overall cost of the 24 month contract equates to ÃÂ£889.00 this could far outweigh the charges for exceeding the limits of a cheaper tariff.
Apple iPhone 4S 16GB in Black Currently Cheaper Than iPhone 4S White Edition
It is a well known fact that the demand for the latest iPhone 4S has well outstripped supply in many countries with over one million handsets sold in the first 24 hours of its release and a further 3 million over the next 48 hours.This now seem to be effecting the prices and deals on offer for the iPhone 4S 16GB in both its black and white colour schemes as different retailers and networks have varying stock levels of each model, this is best reflected in the latest news that the black edition iPhone 4S is currently has cheaper deals than those for the iPhone 4S in white.Although there is not a massive amount between the overall costs of the two colour schemes at ÃÂ£20 over the minimum term contract of 24 months the deals themselves are very different and offer significantly different volumes of inclusive data, minutes and text.The current cheapest deal for the iPhone 4S in black is offered on the Orange network at ÃÂ£25 per month on a tariff called 'Orange iPhone 25', this deal includes 250MB of internet usage, 75 minutes of calls and 125 text messages to use every month and demands an upfront cost of ÃÂ£169.99 for the black iPhone 4S phone.This equates to ÃÂ£769.99 over the minimum term contract period and as we mentioned the best deal for the iPhone 4S in white is ÃÂ£20 more at ÃÂ£789.99, however the tariff that the white edition is available on is a ÃÂ£20 per month package which only includes 100MB of inclusive data, 50 minutes of calls and 50 text messages with an upfront cost of ÃÂ£309.99 for the phone.As you can see from comparing these two iPhone 4S deals the black edition certainly offers far more minutes, text and data than the deal for the iPhone 4S in white meaning those consumers opting for the lighter coloured handset are not getting as good value for money.That said, neither of these deal are really well suited to the average smart phone user, this is proven by the best-selling deal for both colour schemes being offered by the 3 Mobile network, this includes a free iPhone 4S in either colour, 500 minutes of calls, 5000 text messages and a very generous 1GB of internet access every month for just ÃÂ£35 per month.In conclusion, whether opting for the white or the black edition of the new iPhone 4S consumers should always try to match their usage requirements or expect to end up paying far more for exceeding their monthly limits.

There were some issues with the white iPhone but these appear to have been resolved: for one, the white iPhone's camera lens is (or seems to be) more recessed to help reduce the distance between the glass and the sensor. This will help eliminate or reduce the light-leakage issue that it once had.

What Fixed the iPhone 4S Battery Problem for Me
I got my iPhone 4S two weeks after it launched. I was on cloud nine and had no remorse giving away my cherished iPhone 4 to a family member. But then the problems started, the worst battery life ever seen on an iPhone.I started feeling horrible looking at my ex-iPhone 4 going a full day without a charge and my phone felt like it was running on cheap double As.iOS 5.0.1 brought a ray of hope aiming to solve this mammoth of a problem. However, it made the problem worse, at least for me it did.Well in all honesty, there was one thing I had not done, restore my new iPhone 4S 'as a new iPhone'. How could I, I absolutely had to move my digital life from the old to the new.In order to justify keeping my text messages and my Cut the Rope stars and trophies, I tried everything else I could find on the internet. network resets, disabling raise to speak to Siri, turning off push notifications, turning off push email, you name it.Well yesterday I snapped, with the help of Chillingo enabling Cut the Rope game progresses to be saved on iCloud, I bought an app called "Tipard iPhone manager for SMS" for $10 and copied my text messages, though you won't get much functionality with a standard license but it will still give you messages in a text file as well a backup in the software so you can read the messages like you would on the phone itself.I then finally did the restore, spending the exhaustive time required to hand-pick the 250 apps I wanted on my iPhone out of the 500+ in my iTunes library, and needless to say, the results were astounding.I still have 80% of my battery with everything turned on (see what I disabled a few paragraphs back) with nominal usage and a good night sleep worth of stand by time.Concluding this article, it is definitely worth a try to restore your iPhone 4S as a new iPhone if you are facing battery problems even after upgrading to iOS 5.0.1. You could always 'restore from backup' if it doesn't work for you.For further information, I am aware of the various methods of custom backup and restoring of game data and text messages etc but I personally don't like jailbreaking anymore.

The White Edition of the iPhone 4S Lands on O2 Deals
The black edition of the new iPhone 4S was released yesterday on O2 deals for the first time since its initial launch back in October of this year and now the white model has also now been made available on O2 with exactly the same deals.This may not sound like ground-breaking news but up until now both of these colour schemes of the iPhone 4S were only available to existing customers already on the O2 network as an upgrade to their existing handset.Because of initial stock shortages that have effected all suppliers of the new iPhone 4S, O2 took the unique decision to only sell the phone to its own loyal customer base rather than deplete stocks by allowing everyone to own the phone on their network.This has obviously upset many consumers who are currently on a rival network but wanting the iPhone 4S on O2, this has all now changed although it is not the network itself that has made these iPhone 4S deals available but an independent retailer.Consumers can now connect either the black or white edition of the iPhone 4S to a large selection of O2 deals which start with line rental costs of just ÃÂ£21.50 per month and an upfront price for the phone of ÃÂ£299.99, this is currently the cheapest deal available for the phone on O2 with an overall expenditure of ÃÂ£815.99 over the minimum contract period of 24 months.There are also now deals available on O2 that offer a free phone, however these start at ÃÂ£47 per month which means spending an extra ÃÂ£312.01 over the 24 months, that said customers do get plenty more inclusive minutes and text for their money.The cheapest deal only includes 100 minutes of calls and 500 text messages with a monthly data allocation of 500MB whilst the more expensive deal that includes a free iPhone 4S provides 1200 minutes and unlimited text messaging with the same 500MB of internet access.Consumers can add 'Bolt Ons' to both of these deals to boost up the data allocation with an extra 500MB on offer for those that use their phone for data hungry activities such as watching streaming media like video clips or downloading lots of content such as music and games.Now that the iPhone 4S 16GB is available in both black and white colour schemes on O2 it is widely expected that the larger memory editions will also follow suit, this means that both the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 4S models should be available soon in both colour schemes.
O2 iPhone 4S Deals Finally Launched for Non Existing Customers
The brand new iPhone 4S has now been on sale since the early part of October 2011 but one mobile network has been missing from the portfolio of deals on offer for this latest iPhone.Up until today, consumers have been able to order iPhone 4S deals on Orange, Vodafone, T-Mobile and 3 Mobile but the O2 network took a very different decision with their limited stocks of this latest Apple phone, instead of offering deals to everyone as with the other networks they decided to only offer the new iPhone 4S to their existing customers as an upgrade.This has been the case since the launch of the iPhone 4S with many disgruntled and mystified consumers unable to understand why they could not order a brand new iPhone on the O2 network, well the day has now come where this has all changed and surprisingly it is not offered directly from the operator.An independent mobile phones retailer is the first to break cover with new O2 deals for the iPhone 4S, although not as competitive when it comes to owning the phone free of charge with a contract deal there are some lower line rental options that do compete well with the other networks.One in particular is on the O2 100 tariff which for ÃÂ£21.50 per month provides 100 minutes of calls, 500 text messages and 500MB of internet access every month and demands an upfront fee for the iPhone 4S of ÃÂ£299.99, equated of the minimum term contract period of 24 months this totals ÃÂ£815.99 making it the third cheapest deal available for the latest iPhone.For those not wanting to pay an upfront price for the latest Apple phone there is an O2 contract deal with a line rental charge of ÃÂ£47 per month with 1200 minutes of calls, unlimited SMS and the same 500MB of data on offer but total this deal up over the 24 months and the consumer is looking at spending a staggering ÃÂ£1128, that is a whole ÃÂ£312.01 more expensive.That said, the lower line rental deal may not be suitable for some users as the lower 100 minutes of calls offered may be exceeded before the end of the month, when choosing a deal for the new iPhone 4S consumers need to try to match their usage requirements as closely as possible to negate any extra charges for exceeding their allocated calls, text and data volumes.It is also expected that the white edition of the iPhone 4S as well as the 32GB and 64GB models will also soon be offered on the O2 network as the independent retailers start to collate their deals.
iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S to Feature Same A5 Chip Set
As the new iPhone 5 nears its official release date and Apple try to keep as much information as they possibly can under wraps (even employing two guards to keep the new device a secret!) there have been some leaked images just exposed which bring into question just what the difference is to be between the iPhone 5 and rumoured iPhone 4S.These newly published pictures show clearly a brand new A5 dual core processing chip inside the new fifth generation phone casing along with some other interesting points we'll return to below, but most interesting and baffling of all is a separate image of what is believed to be the cheaper iPhone 4S also sporting the same processor.Not only this but the components shown in the image are finished in white so hopefully Apple have now put to bed their colour variant demons that saw the huge delay in releasing the white iPhone 4 model and will be able to release both colours together this time.getting back to the iPhone 5, other interesting points thrown up by these leaked pictures include what appears to be a larger capacity battery than previous models suggesting a larger display screen which many are thinking will measure 3.7 inches and a longer battery life which many an iPhone user will agree can only be a good thing.The iPhone 5 image also shows a slightly larger speaker grille hinting that Apple have been playing with their audio technology, this is hardly surprising given the announcement of the HTC Sensation XE with new Beats Audio technology will be a competitor.These recently leaked pictures from China obviously leave more questions than answers with the biggest of all being if both devices are to offer the same processing power by utilising the new A5 chip what is it that will make the iPhone 4S the budget brother of the iPhone 5?Many hint at a less superior camera resolution and a smaller and less expensive screen to keep costs down but even if the iPhone 4S was to compete with cheaper models of their rival manufacturers such as the HTC Wildfire and Samsung Galaxy Ace this new Apple phone will still need to sport at least a 5.0 mega pixel camera and 3 inch touch screen.Many still believe that Apple will not release a budget version of their iPhone 5 as they have not in the past considered this with any of their product range, you don't find a cheap, scaled down iPad after all but instead just smaller memory capacities to keep the price lower.The iPhone 5 is due for release in mid October so we will not be waiting that long to find out exactly what all the 'hush hush' has been about and as usual and regardless of initial prices we can expect the traditional queues outside Apple stores up and down the country and consumer want to get their hands on the latest iPhone 5 before everybody else.
