  5. what if i want to trade my iphone4s 32gb to iphone 5 much will it cost? i’ve been using the phone less than a month

    • I suggest you just sell your iphone 4s and just buy a new iphone 5. Trading is not a wise choice unless you really know the person you are dealing with. If you sell it, you’ll get more the price of the amount they offer in Greenhills 🙂

    • in the price is around 46,000.. Whew! Good thing I stumbled upon the online store of one of the suppliers in Greenhills check out their online store but they only have limited iPhone5 offers
      you may contact them at their websites. I already bought the black iPhone5 from them and very happy with it! Btw, I bought my 16gb for 34,500 free shipping.

    • Yes the price lists above are the latest. I based the price from Smart Prepaid since they are cheaper than Globe. If you want to see the price comparison between Globe and Smart for the iphone 5, see the related article listed above. I’ve been to Greenhills recently and asked about their brand new iphone 5 price, it’s P32,000, you’ll save 1000 for that. 🙂

    • Yeah I know the feeling. Why did you not wait? You must have asked me when would they release iphone 5 ehehe Anywayz, to make you feel better iphone 4s features still are amazing. The new iphone just upgraded into A6 chip, 4G LTE, bigger screen and enhanced features. The EarPods are no big deal and the new connector. You can update to the iOS anytime. If you want to upgrade to iphone 5, better sell your unit to somebody or sell it in Greenhills 🙂

  6. On September 12 Apple will release it. I can’t wait to see how it looks. I wonder will the existing models come down in price, Fehl? I want to get an iPhone so much. LOL.

    Thank you for the great web page articles. This is starting to look better than Hub pages. Can I say that? 🙂

    • We will see it few hours from now 🙂 Yeah for sure iphone 4s price will drop when iphone 5 is available. Let’s see what makes iphone 5 better than iphone 4s so we know which one to buy hehe I hope it’s more than ipad 2 vs ipad 3 which is just 4G, iSight camera and microphone ahead haha

      Thank you for being the first to comment. Wanna kiss you now :p
