New iPhone 5s...... In da House!
Posted by: steve...
Date: April 20, 2017 12:48PM
My first iPhone. Tracfone had them for $155 shipped - brand new. It came with iOS 9.35, I upgraded to 10.31.

I'm still finding my way around but really like it so far. It's replacing a cheap LG phone that I was ready to throw in the garbage.

Nah, people have been saying that about iOS since at least v.7.

Hope that's not one that eats up data, even when it's on wifi. My son-in-law has a 5s and he was eating up half our 15 Gbs of data on our AT&T plan. He finally got another phone and his data usage has dropped considerably.

My wife has a 5S on att. No such issues. Likely a software bug.

Yeah, could be. Been fairly well documented for years and no one's ever come up with a definite solution. I think Verizon managed to fix it on their 5s.

I guess its an OK deal, sounds like carrier didnt matter since you wnet with trackfone?

Boost has the SE for $159 -- way, way better than the 5S and future proof longer...

Yep, the bug still exists.

is that a bug or they have WiFi assist turned ON? Settings -> Cellular-> scroll all way down for WiFi Assist. Make sure it is OFF.

That Deal from Boost looks good.... except for the fact that all versions of the SE are OOS.

The post got me to look into something like this for my mom. Holy schnikees, the iPhone 5s is $150 but the SE is $400 at Tracfone. We would have to do the Boost Mobile version but the really low-end plans are cheaper at Tracfone.
