    Oh no. I'm planning to get the 6 in the Fall too. :) Unless they are only super sized at 5 " only. If the 6 is in the 4 to 4.3 inch size, I'll get that.

    The iPad Mini serves the function of a larger display that is portable in a messager or briefcase.

    I know you were planning on it. But the rumors are swirling that the size will grow...

    Ah I see your meaning. It's possible there may be a 4" iPhone 6 with improved front camera, sapphire screen or other things. Along with at least one size jump.

    I hope so too. While my wife seemed excited about those large screens I suspect my step-daughter's reaction would be to freak out if giant screens are all that's left.

    I would have the same reaction as your step daughter.

    The 4" is ideal size for me, I am willing to go up to 4.3, max 4.5 no larger.

    Maybe I will wait for the 6s. ;)

    Why? The 6 is likely to be 4" too. And then a larger model also.

    Charlyee waiting 1.5 years for a phone? I don't think so.

    No, but going from a 5.5" screen to a 4.7" one will be :p

    AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    I'll be curious to my reaction to a larger screened iPhone 6. I know Apple has to do it for the Asian markets, and elsewhere. However I don't know own reaction.

    I carry my iPad mini around, in my saddle bag, for my larger screen needs. It's great cause the software apps are the same and lots of icloud data is shared as well as safari tabs.

    I don't need a 6" screen to make phone calls. It's a good combination with the two devices.

    Maps is where a see having a larger screen would be nice. But even 7" is not enough sometimes. .

    I'm hoping that Apple has an update but in 2 or 3 sizes. I would hate for some features to only be in one size or the other.

    Just my thoughts. Be curious how you 'handle' the Note 3 Eileen.

    Very true! Having gotten used to my 6" 1520 the 4.3" 720 & 820 felt like toys. Also I would catch my self putting the phones closer to my face to read.

    Re: AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    I will second this. Always easy to go bigger than smaller IMO. It did take me some time to adjust going from my Atrix HD/Xperia TL to the smaller iPhone screen.

    I hope the next iPhone isn't much bigger than 4.5". I'd hate to have to use two hands to operate my phone all the time. Might as well by a tablet at that point.

    So true, even though the difference in screen size was only 0.3" for me, going from the 900/820 to the iPhone 5, it took me awhile to get used to it.

    Initially it felt like a toy, too slim and light and entirely too slippery.

    One of the rumors has it that the screen size will be 4.5" with no or minimal bezel thus keeping the physical size the same as the 5/5s. I really like this rumor, that would be ideal for me.

    Going back on topic, the first of three items, canceling my third line appears to have been successfully completed.

    The second step will be converting the Family Talk to Mobile Share and that is scheduled to happen tomorrow.

    Every now and again I pick up the Note 3 or LG Flex to test something. It's funny how going from the Flex to Note makes one think of Note as a toy… and it's amazing how little time it takes to adjust to a bigger size.

    The only problem is my pants and shirt pockets size are fixed. But I agree, going smaller from a larger size would be a shock. One has to also consider the bulk of a case too.

    Re: AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    This rumor or photoshop conception comes up every year

    I think it's unlikely. Mechanically and electrically it would be hard to implement. Also a chip on the glass edge would ruin the active screen area.

    Lastly, not that Apple cares, it would destroy a lot of case designs that have an overlapping lip on the front.

    I expect the width to go up!

    Although it can be hard to downsize, sometimes it works. I was happy to go from the full ipad to the mini.

    And many in the USA have switched from large Androids to an iphone regardless.

    Yes, I don't believe Apple cares what difficulty case manufacturers may face.


    If the width goes up and the length remains the same, it would start to look like the 4s and I would really like that. :)

    I always thought the 4s was the best looking iPhone to date, I never for the long skinny look that the iPhone 5/5s and had to get used to it.

    Re: AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    If the width goes up, so will the height. To maintain the HD format of 16:9 (1.77) (compared with the 4S ratio of 4:3 (1.333)) it will grow proportionally as does every Android phone. The HD screen size proportions of an Android 4" is the same as the iPhone 5.

    So expect a wider phone if it goes to 4.3" or larger.

    I prefer the 5 over the 4S. It is also a thinner phone, which makes the phone + case smaller overall.

    Re: AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    True, but I think some of the rumors about 2 sized iPhones, one of them being larger than 5.5" might be true. If so, the second one will be close to the 5.7" screen on the Note 3. I for one will welcome a larger screened iPhone. I wasn't happy with what Apple did with the 4" iPhone and hope they make the 6 a little wider.

    Re: AT&T Launches Lower-Cost Mobile Share Value Plans for Families

    I can see going from a 4.3" or 4.7" down to a 4" 5S may be difficult (not impossible).

    However going from a 5.7" to a 4" would be easy for me ( an many). A mobile phone with a screen that size is just too large. That's why they call the Note 3 a 'phablet'.

    After using my Note 3 for the past 4 days I will have a hard time adjusting to the small 4" screen of my 5S again. I LOVE the larger 5.7" screen on the N3. :)

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    Rumor now is that 5S design is kept (with new processor, camera,etc) and 2 larger iPhone versions will be in 5C format.

    So three screen sizes in fall.

    This actually makes sense. IOS 8 to have improved maps with transit info and better POVs.

    So getting the 5S early maybe wasn't a bad idea. Still I'd like the new A8 chip.

    I would love to see a 5.7" iPhone model. However, I do not think I would like it with the design of the 5C. If this comes true I'll go with the Galaxy Note 4 for my next phone.

    I've always liked the 5C. They just need more plain colors like grey or black to attract the business person. Reminds me of the 3 and 3G iPhones.

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    After carrying my Note 3 around in my scrub pocket for the past few days at work and strapping it to my arm while out on a 10 mile skate I'm starting to think that maybe a 4.8" iPhone 6 will be good enough. While I do like having a 5.7" screen for web browsing and watching Netflix, it's a pain having to keep it in a pocket. And I gave up trying to fit it in my Skinny jeans the first day, LOL.

    A lot of the 5C users that I see all keep their phones in a case, which to me takes away from any color that is on the back. I kind of like the mock up designs of the 6 with rounded sides and the edge to edge screen. I don't see this model being the final product though.

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    I visited my local Best Buy to try out various phones and sizes. I could see a 4.3" and even 4.7". But anything larger than that, and certainly it would not work for me in the pocket or even at the gym. It really depends on the overall design. I looked at the Moto X, and was surprised how similar in size it was to the iPhone 5S, for such a large screen. So If Apple produced something like that, I'd give it a look.

    If it was a bit off in size, I wouldn't give up the Apple eco system, which works very well for me (with iPad and macbook, and Apple TV...and all the family on the same).

    I like the bright colors of the current 5C...especially the green. But I would feel odd with it in many situations...not to mention a black tie dinner. So perhaps Apple will give the larger screens in these 5C formats, but with an expanded selections of colors...and most likely they will be aluminum backed, but anodized in the various colors as stated above.

    iPhone 6 size speculation & will you be staying with iOS if vastly different?

    I don't want to re-visit any "fan-boy" wars, but I still don't understand why some people lock themselves into only one brand. If there's another phone that has a larger screen and/or other features that you like, then why not just buy that, instead of waiting and wondering if "your" brand will put out something similar in the future? In today's "phone world" there isn't really a huge difference between manufacturers, OS's, ecosystems, etc. Right now I have an Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone (and have used an iPhone at work) and I honestly don't see any huge differences between them.

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    That depends on how heavily one uses features that are establishing ties that are hard to break, or exclusive features, or how much money one has invested in app purchases. If I'm not mistaken, viewfly has pretty significant ties to features like Photostream and has purchased a great deal of apps. Switching to a different OS would mean that he has to figure out content transfer, app availability, buy them all over again, find out whether those proprietary things are available for other OSes and so on. If on the other hand you live your life like De Niro's character from the movie Heat (there should be nothing in your life you can't walk out on in 30 seconds flat) then yes, switching between those OSes should be pretty trivial ;)

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    Lol, I knew there would be a movie simile thrown in there. :D

    Excellent point, if I may add to it that it also depends on the Eco System one is vested in.

    At one point I had Windows at work, OSX at home, ipad, a WP or Android as phone. It was fun having a variety of OS but at the same time synching was a time consuming and sometimes a nightmare.

    Now I basically have OSX at work and home, ipad, and iPhone. Everything just is effortless and smooth to switch between devices.

    Of course it does take some of the challenge away and one of these I might get a phone with a different OS :D

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    The answer is simple and very easy to understand.

    I've been very happy with the 4" screen, and really have not been chomping at the bit, or even envious of larger screen devices. Not a bit.

    So there has been no waiting for a larger device. I posted earlier (above I think) that I'm personally curious how I will respond to a larger iPhone screen in the fall. From the rumors, there may be 3 iPhones this fall: 4" 4.3 (or 4.7") and 5.7"...i may just stay with the 4", but in a iPhone 6 model. I said that I'd look at it....not buy it. ;)

    Even if I was 'dying' for a larger screen, that is not really singularly enough of a reason to give up 1) the advantages of the Apple eco system and familiarity I have with my other devices and 2) since all my friends and family have iPhones, the advantages that brings (iMessage, FaceTime, Find my Friends, just to name a view).

    The increase from 4 to 4.3 or 4.7 is not really a big deal for me. The size disappears for me, when I'm engrossed in whats on the screen, not the screen itself.

    You're talking to a guy that watched Godfather I and II, on a tiny iPod screen on a 14 hour flight to asia once. And didn't even notice it. The story was good enough. ;)

    Sometimes when I read about some that rush out to get the latest device because it has 1 new feature (like physical form shape or factor) and thereby have to change all their apps or lose some connectivity with other devices....are more interested in the device itself, staring at it, than actually using the device productively. Just my observation.

    If you remember in the heyday of the BB, it was the device, but also the popularity of BBM (messenger) that people loved...and those without BBM were, 'out of the loop'. Not uncool...just not part of the fun.

    So it's not the device or singular OS...but how you work with the total system and among your friends and family that is important. Samsung has been pushing this idea as well, with their clicking S3's phones together to share a photo. Apple has Airplay. All of which can be solved with 3rd party apps...but just plain more fun when you all have the same system.

    Think of it this way...if you are stuck on Google Chat...but all your friends use FaceBook chat...it doesn't really work out too well. With my friends and family...everyone has iMessage as a native app...and the few that don't...well SMS is integrated with iMessage so it works. And it is pure joy to use my Mac or iPad to continues the chat there.
    If everyone one had a Samsung S4...maybe I would switch...but that is not the case for me.

    Makes sense?

    Re: iPhone 6 speculations & Screen size discussions.

    Good points, I have Windows on my home PC mainly because there are a few programs that I use that are only available on Windows. But on the flip side, there are similar programs on Linux, that are free, but maybe less features, so I could "walk out in 30 seconds" if needed ;)

    But with phones, I use a hand-full of apps, that are all free, and all (or similar) are available on pretty much all OS's. With music, I rip all my music to mp3's so I can easily transfer them between devices; I like to listen to them on whatever device, without being tied to an account or hardware serial number, etc.. So generally, I have no problems jumping from one phone platform to another.


    That's kind of the thing I was getting at, Apple decides how big to make the screen, what features, etc., and then if you are tied to that brand, you have to accept it. You don't really have a choice. You are not in the driver's seat, you are a passenger in the back seat going wherever the driver takes you. For people not tied to a brand or eco-system, there's alot more freedom, you can walk in a store, try different phones and if one color, size, feature stands out you can take that phone home with you. But to each their own I suppose.

    Like I said above, I can jump between OS's with little problem. I wouldn't buy a phone just for one feature (well, unless it was a really, really cool one maybe :)), but I like to stay flexible, and if something strikes me about a phone/OS I might just get it. A few months ago when I bought my BlackBerry Z10, I was actually looking at Androids, but something struk me about the Z10, I liked the style, the fluidity of the OS. When I read more about the QNX I became more intrigued, as well as the security/stability of the BlackBerry. So I decided to buy that instead of another Android (which I was getting a little bored with anyway.) The Nokia Lumia I just bought was also out of curiosity for something different.

    You mentioned " lose some connectivity with other devices" but generally, that's what standards are for (ex.DLNA, BlueTooth, wifi, etc.), and alot of apps (ex: Skype, WhatsApp, BBM, etc.) are all cross-platform. So normally, there shouldn't be any problem connecting devices on different OS/platforms. If an app/service stays only within one OS, it's kind of dooming it's self to fail, or at the minimum excluding a large amount of potential customers.

    Don't get me wrong, I can understand the concept of getting tied into a brand/OS, mainly for the familiarity or stability (ie: get something working and just leave it alone), but for me I like the flexibility, excitement, freedom, etc. that comes from different devices and different platforms. But then, to each their own.
