"All three promotions are meant to help T-Mobile sell more iPhones"

Why it's everybody trying to get rid of their iphones stock?

Wait until you see what the 6 looks like! I call it Galaxy-Note envy.

I have no doubt apple will sell a lot of the 6 model. That said, when the Apple faithful see Apple emulate everything they claimed was wrong, it will open some eyes.

Apple doesn't emulate. They innovate. Having a larger screen iPhone is pure innovation. Who would have ever that of a larger iPhone. People don't even know they want a larger iPhone until they try it out at the Apple store.

Lol. You are such a Samsung Troll. Didn't you know that Apple invented large screen phones. Samsung is just copying them. Apple has a patent on it. It was never done before Apple did it. Just like slide to unlock. No other device in the history of the universe has slide to unlock before the iPhone.

Whenver someone gets the iphone to sell, they have to cut commissions all around. As the iPhone is extremely proprietary, they do not discount such as Samsung, HTC, or LG. Coming from someone who works in a Wireless Kiosk in Costco, I never hated the iPhone more than I do now.

---"I never hated the iPhone more than I do now."---

Welcome to the '80s and '90s. You are just realizing what our generation always knew. Apple has not one ounce of consumer interest in its DNA. It is to control and get rich. It's that simple. We can argue that other companies are in it for money also. But, line of sight proves that the other companies are at least on par with major trends and advances that fit into consumer needs and wants. Not telling them what is needed and not wanted. Proof of this is Apple's constant claim to consumers of not needing things or not meeting size requirements only to implement every single thing it claimed wasn't necessary since the original iPhone. This has allowed Apple's popularity with its smaller ...

It also depends, as Mac computers have always came with slightly lower internal system specs and that's because them doing such allowed them to always have better energy savings, with better performance compared to it's Windows counterpart.

The OS really makes a difference in how useful the the hardware actually is, MacOS (and iOS - my only complaint is they seem to love the 1GB ram barrier) tend to be much better than Android or Windows at both hardware usage management as well as power management.

For instance, my MacBook Pro (that i love considering i still can get an actual desktop OS that's not still trying to get through it's identity crisis) will last ~8hrs on the included battery, not to mention the case still runs cool to the ...

Cool story bro.

But that doesn't have anything to do with Android versus iOS. Android is far superior than iOS in many regards. Battery life is the same on both. You will get about a days worth of charge out of each. Android is just as fast as iOS. But Android offers more than iOS can.

As a fellow WA worker in costco, I couldn't agree more about the hatred of iPhones.
I don't dislike them as products, they are alright. My fiance has one (though, she prefers android).
But as far as the commission cutting, that wasn't based just on iPhones, it had a lot to do with Verizon EDGE. They're trying to push everyone to it with all they have. Which is annoying because it's not a good deal for most people.
