Buy iPhone 4 from Best Buy Mobile or Verizon?


May 2, 2011, 10:03 PM
I was wondering if anyone can share any positive or negative experiences with purchasing iPhone 4 from Best Buy Mobile.

I could hold out for the iPhone 5, but I have been holding out for the iPhone 4 since March 2010. Now that it has arrived, I find myself wanting to wait to purchase until after Apple's WWDC in early June, to see if a credible (from the source: Apple) eta on iPhone 5 is revealed.

My parents have had great experience with Black Tie Protection insurance on Garmin GPS nav systems, and have received 2 or 3 free replacements to current models.

Another benefit to Best Buy is the Buy Pack Protection Program...I know they only give 50% back first 6 months, but would provide for easy upgrade to iPhone 5 when released.

I got a Droid Incredible from Best Buy (and a month later I paid full retail for an iPhone 4 from an apple store, but that is beside the point). The good thing about best buy was I got a really good price on the phone, however they messed up the plan I wanted and I had to go to a Verizon store to get it straightened out. The lady also misspelled my name twice, which required a call to Verizon customer service, but I cant blame all best buys for one lazy worker.

I'm undecided on the black tie program.

I also bought at Best Buy and at the time they threw in the Buy Back Protection Plan free. One caveat, in order to get the full price of the buy back that they told you, you will need ALL of the original equipment, manuals, and box, otherwise you will get less than what they advertised.
