Wal-Mart cuts prices of iPhone 5 models
The entry-level iPhone 5c will cost $29, according to reports. The next version of the phone is expected in September.
The entry-level (16 GB) iPhone 5s will cost $99 with a two-year contract contract. The entry-level (16 GB) iPhone 5c will cost $29 with a two-year contract.
Wal-mart has run deals in the past, but this discount is permanent.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be a significant upgrade.
Apple (AAPL) will reportedly deliver a two bigger models. The current iPhone has a 4-inch screen. The iPhone 6 is expected to have a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch screen.
So, if you have an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or even an iPhone 5, you may be asking yourself if it's worth taking advantage of this Wal-Mart deal.
Here is my advice. If you can wait, then wait. The price of an iPhone 5s will not be higher in September. At that point, you'll be able to see the big screen phones and make a decision for yourself.
However, if you're impatient, go to Wal-Mart. Try using the Internet on a Samsung S5 phone and a Galaxy Note III phone. If you like those big screens, then wait until September. If you think they're too big, and too hard to handle, then you should just buy an iPhone 5S.
The iPhone 5S is a great phone. Based on everything we've read, the bigger screen is the only major modification coming the iPhone 6.
Not sure if there is anything more sad than people camp out and stand in line overnight for the latest iphone, or Xbox, or to be one of the first to see a movie, etc, etc, etc,... and the truth is, this isn't just kids doing this anymore, it's "adults". All in a quest to be the first... what is wrong with people? Is life that shallow for them? Are they that superficial?
Been watching this phenomena for a few decades, and it becomes more pathetic with time.
why would walmart do that? I thought they were only out for max profits?

How can iOS 8 be completely different from iOS 7? Sapphire vs. Gorilla Glass? Yep, that's real technology that was invented for watch crystals many years ago and is scratch resistance.
You mean I can get another bargain at Walmart besides
Milkbones, too bad my master likes his dumb phone.....
