Wait Until You're Prepared
If you haven't spent time preparing to buy your next phone, hold off until you're ready to do so.
You might want to do it but you shouldn't rush into buying a new phone, even if your phone is currently out of commission.
If you aren't tied to a carrier make sure you research carrier coverage in your home and the areas you frequent the most.
We also recommend digging into carrier pricing and data plans. If you haven't upgraded your phone in awhile, they've probably changed.
You also need to look into your upgrade and make sure it's available. There are just a few of the steps we recommend taking before buying a new phone.
Read the fine print, research iPhone 6 alternatives, and find the best carrier and data plan for you and your needs.
Once you feel comfortable, make your move.
