  • Can you still get iPhone 4S plans from SoftBank as of now? (Nov/Dec '12)

    http://mb.softbank.jp/en/ has been cleanwiped of any traces of the iPhone 4S, no information whether it's still offered or not.

    I'm not interested in iPhone 5, i like the 4S way more, have a prepaid 4S and been waiting for the 4S plans to drop prices, when suddenly, they disappeared alltogether o_O'''

      A used softbank 4S in good condition is about Y 30,000 :

        second hand iPhones are WAY too expensive, 30k is ridiculous! you get a new 4S handset from Softbank for less than 30k (16GB) and 35k (32GB) with full waranty and whatnot.

        also, softbank handsets are locked and thus not worth a penny outside of japan, unless you fancy an extra expensive iPod and/or paperweight...

          Oh yes, the old iPhone 4S. They certainly don't make them like they used to!?


          How is the 4S (which I currently use) better than an iPhone 5?

          Should I wait until the 5S comes out??

            at the moment, i fancy the 4S because it's
            - smaller
            - cheaper
            - comes with Google Maps (when you refuse to update to iOS 6)

            in the past it always paid off to wait for the 3GS,4S and in this case certainly the 5S will fix the iPhone 5's shortcomings, most prominently the god-awful Apple Maps (a software problem, but no less annoying than hardware issues)
