Laughing out loud Keep scratching at it with nails the next day to take the rough edges of the scratch or dent so it doesnt look as bad too. After that though if you do drop it and its face down all you hope for is that the screen aint smashed and then you pick it up with a sigh of relief and stop caring.

Failed the football test.

It doesn't fit in my number nine jeans front pocket and when in the back pocket it sticks out waving and whistling attracting attention like a needy kid.

Gunna have to start wearing those deep pocket MII 19" like its 2006 all over again.

How much data do people use on their iPhones? I don't do anything ridiculous a few hours of streaming radio on the iPlayer app plus everything else and i've used 5GB this month. Seems quite a lot, no?

I get 1gb and have never gone over or anywhere near until last month when I ran out a few days short, as did my mate. Was in America for half of the month aswell with my data off so something definately went wrong. That's with EE, not sure what network you're on. 5gb sounds very high.

I'd imagine streaming radio is pretty intensive on data! I'm connected to wifi at work and home so only use data in between. But If you dont have wifi during the day and use facebook/twitter quite a bit I think you'd struggle with a gig.

i teethered my iPhone on EE to my laptop and went through that 4gb limit in no time streaming songs and watching youporn, sorry youtube. Should have stuck with my Three plan with unlimited teethering. damn.

Thats the 6+ though, dont really understand what you would be wearing to be able to leave that in your pocket and sit comfortably for a few hours. Also must feel something if the pressure is bending the metal chassis of your phone?
Must be Americans with 46 inch waist jeans and proportionately sized pockets.

Went in and had a look today. My 5 is up for renewal, going to get the 5s.

6 just feels to lightweight and cheap, imo. Don't get the hype for it.

no, I get what burny is saying, the 5s has a bit more depth to it, feels bit more all round substantial in the hand, whereas the 6 is thin and light. prefer the styling of the 6 but wouldn't mind if they had made a slightly thicker one and had a bigger battery in it.

I only had 1 gig on my old contract and the only time I went over it was the first month when you don't get the full allowance. So went for the 2gig option this time, can't see it been an issue for me.

So do the old school nokias. There's a lot more to a phone than just battery life. I'm rarely out and about for 12+ outs with no access to a charger so not that bothered.

Anyway, got a 6 last week and completely understand what burny is getting at. It feels like a Samsung s4 (which I'm ashamed to admit I owned for a few months), looks and feels like it's made of plastic
