Awesome product

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

iPhone is no doubt one of the most anticipated products of this year. Before the launch, it was shrouded by hearsay and speculation in just about every aspect, even it's name. A lot of us were expecting the iPhone 5, a re-designed, thinner phone with a larger screen running on a 4G network. A lot of questions were answered but a lot of people were disappointed when Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S at WWDC 2011. Same design, same screen size, same resolution, looks identical to 2010's iPhone 4 and it still only runs on 3G networks

The worst experience in buying a PHONE I HAVE EVER HAD AND LOST $100.

No, I would not recommend this product.

I bought this phone to give to my wife after her phone's monthly ran out.in February...I took for granted that the phone was UNLOCKED as the ad said and didn't check it out after I got it..I wanted to use the phone on the t-mobile network..I went to Walmart to have the phone hooked up the other day (Saturday Feb.7th) only to find out it wasn't (Unlocked) it was a Verizon Phone ...The guy at walmart messed it up trying to put on the t-mobile network.. So. after going to Verizon,they said it could not be activated even on their network because (T-mobile Walmart) Had put a phone number on it that couldn't be taken off..after 4 hours at Walmart and Verizon on a Saturday.I ended up trading the worthless phone in for 50.00 credit and paid another 50. for a reconditioned Verizon.phone I had no choice..so I lost 100.00 and wasn't able to use the t-mobile network like I wanted to. This phone I bought off Ebay I was a little Leary. because of the negative feedback of the seller.but took his word for it..Because of the (UNLOCKED) on the ad.which I realize now was a bunch of crap...I'll never buy or sell another phone on Ebay I've had bad experiences. with both thanks

Awful!

No, I would not recommend this product.

I am VERY upset! The phone they sold me was said to have been through Verizon, although it had previously they failed to mention that the phone had been jail broken and had service downloaded onto it through and international carrier that is Dutch or something. Verizon refuses to fix it because they are no longer authorized to fix it. I am now having to try and find someone to re flash the software back to Verizon in order for me to use anything data related and hopefully begin to get half of my messages and phone calls that aren't coming to me because they don't go through the correct towers. I am extremely unsatisfied.

Fraud by cellularheroes and ebay in I-Phone deal

No, I would not recommend this product.

I had very bad experience with iphone I purchased through ebay. First of all I ordered for a new phone but it automatically changed from 'new' to 'mint'. It was very disappointing as I was given an 'used' phone by cellular heroes. When I objected to it they say condition will be good. I accepted the phone with heavy heart as I donot want to send it back and more over it was not in poor condition. I tried to operate it by contacting the 'sprint' they totally disowned the phone and flatly refuged to activate it as it has been purchased fron the unauthorised sourcce. I was having no option but to try to operate it myself by following instruction from INTERNET but it didnot work at all. I contacted cellularheroes to help me but they picked up the point that I have tried to operate it therefore they disowned this phone and told flatly they will not take back and also do not extend any help. Now the situation is that I have spend 405 usd and my phone is non functional with no hope that it will operate as it is locked by sprint. Pl let me know is it not a fraud with me? Donot you feel that I have cheated for 405 usd by ebay and cellularheroes. Lastly I request you to let me know what should I do with this nonfunctional phone? How to make it functional? I have lost all the hopes and feeling cheated for 405 usd which is my hard earned money.

Abosolutley WORST/HORRIBLE Experience

No, I would not recommend this product.

This Phone was not Unlocked. It was a Sprint phone which I found out is extremely difficult to unlock and use without issues. Before the phone could be jailbroken it was updated with the latset 6.0 ios firware which there is no jailbreak for. So I never got to use the GVey Sim card it came with to unlock it. The seller refused to take the phone back. So this was the absolute WORST/HORRIBLE experience I've every had with a purchase. I paid $450.00 for a unlocked phone and cannot use it with my T- mobile sim card. I advise to always purchase factory unlock. I must give this entire experience a zero.

The phone is broken, and there's nothing I can even do about it.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Everything is great, except for the fact that the lock button broke. I can't turn on the phone, without pushing down on the lock button as hard as I can. And I need assistant touch, which is a permanent circle on the screen, that allows me to lock the phone. And it doesn't go away when you watch a video.

Detailed item info
Product Information
The Apple iPhone 4S is rich with technology and features for an enhanced user experience. The release of the iPhone 4 had smartphone users impressed, thanks to state-of-the-art size, speed, and applications. Apple topped the iPhone 4 with the Apple iPhone 4S, which builds on the iPhone 4 for an even better user experience. Along with a more powerful chip and an improved camera the Apple iPhone 4S also includes an interactive personal assistant to help keep busy lives running smoothly.

Meet Siri
This 4S smartphone boasts the all-new Siri application which introduces a new level of interactive software. This personal assistant is prepared to assist and guide on any one of the many tasks that face users every day. It can understand speakers without any formatting requirement for questions and commands, so users can converse with it as they would with another person. From directions to reminders to initiating calls and much more, Siri offers constant support for many tasks. Now emails and text messages can be dictated while driving for safer travel, and with a simple request, Siri will play the song you want to hear, search the Web, dial a call, or schedule a meeting. Experience the Dual-Core A5 Chip.
The Apple iPhone 4S has the most powerful chip ever included in an iPhone; the dual-core A5. Double cores mean double power, as well as graphics that are up to seven times faster. Now do anything on the iPhone 4S with lightning speed, including gaming, launching applications, and browsing the Web. The A5 chip gives this Apple smartphone an exceptionally long battery life.

Advanced Camera
The camera of the Apple iPhone 4S might very well make stand-alone digital cameras obsolete. Eight megapixels have full capacity to collect unprecedented amounts of light. As a result, it delivers images with significantly improved detail and resolution, which carries through perfectly in enlargements up to 8x10.
Besides the increase in megapixels has been completely re-engineered and upgraded to provide an excellent image regardless of the amount of light available. This Apple smartphone has a custom lens that shapes incoming light with five precision elements. This gives each image a sharper quality that is not seen in any earlier Apple smartphone camera. A backside illumination sensor offers additional sensitivity, resulting in crisp and clear photos. The iPhone 4S offers an automatic LED flash for low-light situations which can also be manually powered.
The secret behind the technology of the Apple iPhone 4S camera is the A5 chip and the iOS 5 platform. Users can control exposure on the Apple iPhone 4S just as they would on a standard digital camera and tap to focus. Editing, cropping, enhancing, and red-eye removal all happen right on the device, which means it's able to correct and send photos moments after they happen.

Quality Video
All the new features of the iPhone 4S camera make videos better as well. Whether there is ample light or barely any at all, an advanced backside illumination sensor and a bigger aperture are prepared to make the most of what is available. Video stabilization is state-of-the-art for a smartphone, so movies are great even when the videographer's hands are unsteady.
There are more than 200 new features on this 4S smartphone, making it easy to upgrade. Text messaging is taken to an entirely new level with iMessage, offering secure, unlimited instant conv

Not sold as advertised. .

No, I would not recommend this product.

This phone was sold locked so more money was spent to unlock the phone before I updated it and after. Once done, I am unable to text but I can received texts. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. I am very disappointed with this product. Also the ad stated it was a new phone but no guide book was in the package when I received it.
