Weekly Roundup: "Small" iPhones and Other Oddities
Last Friday, I picked up my new "small" iPhone at the Apple Store, and then drove over to a T-Mobile store where I terminated my AT&T service after 7(?) years of being one of their customers. It wasn't any one thing in particular that drove me over the edge with them. Instead it was a multitude of the psychic equivalent of papercuts that pushed me into the arms of refreshingly foul-mouthed CEO John Legere's mobile company instead.
Tethering? Check. Music streaming is exempt from my data usage (except iTunes Match, annoyingly). VoLTE? Better believe it. Faster data downloads than on AT&T's network? I was actually quite surprised by this.
Anyway, I'm still blown away by just how big the iPhone 6 is. It's going to take me time to adjust. I'm just glad I didn't buy the Plus. How about you? What'd you buy, and why'd you choose it?
