    I turned my I-phone 5s into a submarine, failed the stupid test.

    I need a new cell phone, I am fond of and used to the I-phone. I do not necessarily need the latest and greatest.

    Any thoughts, deals etc...... ?

    Currently on ATT but Verizon is strong in my area as well.

    New iPhones likely being announced tomorrow. Might be some discounts coming on iPhone 12 models. Mine works fine.

    Judging by the fact that the thread title is in all-capps, I will assume that the new phone must be LOUD!!

    Seriously though, we got Older Offspring an iPhone 12 mini, that might do the trick.

    Throw down for a new iPhone.

    I over-bought a 12 Pro last year and while I don't need the camera features I am gotten some pretty amazing photos of my kids and other landscapes.

    I am figuring an iPhone is a 5+ year investment so I want to make sure I got the 5G's.

    Cell phones aren't hard to use/learn.

    Ditch the iPhone platform.

    Buy a Moto G on a Google Fi subscription and save yourself a ton of money; drop that money into suppressors, ammo, new guns, training, etc.

    I bought the newer IPhone SE about a year ago, it has been a good replacement for my 5s, which was getting slow, etc.

    It was about $400.

    They are also the free phone for work phones off the government contract.

    My iphone 11 spent 5 or 6 hours in around 18-25 inches of water once. We found it because the alarm started going off. So at least you wouldn't have that to worry about with a newer iphone.
