Where Can I Buy an iPhone 4S Without a Contract

Updated on January 10, 2013

Cheap, Refurbished iPhone 4s

If you're asking yourself, where can I buy an iPhone 4s without a contract, you've come to the right place. Now that the iPhone 5 is out, the price of the iPhone 4s will soon decrease. If you are also wondering whether or not you should buy an iPhone 5, consider the fact that there are no major differences between the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5. The biggest difference between the two phones is the fact that the iPhone 5 is a half an inch longer. In terms of the software, the iPhone 5 is indeed faster, but overall, you won't find any glaring differences between the two phones. Keep in mind that the iPhone 5 uses the faulty Apple map, which has been proven to be inaccurate and terrible overall. Unfortunately, iPhone 5 users currently can only access Google maps using their web browsers. A 16GB iPhone 5 will cost you around $650, while an iPhone 4s will cost you around $500. In my opinion, the iPhone 5 doesn't offer enough to compensate for the extra $150. Below, I will show you where you can purchased the cheapest iPhone 4s without a contract.

Buy a Refurbished iPhone 4s

When buying Apple products, I always purchase refurbished ones. In the last couple of years, I've purchased a refurbished Macbook Air, a refurbished iPod and a refurbished iPhone 4s. I've never had any problems with these products and they all looked brand new when I took them out of the box. The big plus was that I saved hundreds of dollars by not buying them brand new! Nevertheless, there was a time, in which I thought refurbished meant that the product was slightly a step above used. I thought that a refurbished product was more likely to break down and deteriorate overtime, compared to a brand new product. However, after going through so many refurbished products, I am no longer convinced that a refurbished Apple product is inferior. They are quite extraordinary! The reason why Apple refurbished products do so well is because a lot of people who return Apple products, do so within 30 days. They usually return it because they don't like the color or are displeased with some type of aesthetic. They rarely return the product because the internal software program is faulty. If you have never bought a refurbished Apple product, I urge you to do so because you can save quite a lot of money.

Save More Money by Buying the iPhone 4

If money is an issue, I suggest that you purchase the iPhone 4, rather than the 4s. I've had the chance to use both phones, and I can't really tell the difference except the speed, which is slightly faster on the iPhone 4s. The iPhone 4s also comes with Siri, an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator. It sounds cool, and Siri is fun to play with in the beginning, but after a while, once the novelty is gone, you won't be using it as much. You can buy an iPhone 4 for a very low price these days. Thus, its worth checking out!
