Apple iPhone 4S 16GB MC918LL/A Black 3G Cell Phone w/ 8 MP Camera / A5 Processor For AT&T (MC918LL/A)

ICON Loading...

iPhone 4S, the most amazing iPhone yet, is packed with new features like Apple's dual-core A5 chip for even more power, an advanced and faster 8 megapixel camera with all-new optics and full HD 1080p video recording, and Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking.

You'll do everyday things in extraordinary ways on iPhone 4S. Take amazing photos and shoot HD video. See your friends and family with FaceTime. Browse the web on the Retina display. Check email. Send messages. Set reminders. Check calendars. Or just ask Siri to help you get things done — it figures out the right apps to use.

iPhone 4S also ships with iOS 5 - the world's most advanced mobile operating system, with over 200 new features - and iCloud. iCloud stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Automatic, effortless, and seamless — with iCloud, whatever’s on your iPhone 4S is automatically on your other devices, too.

  • newegg Siri, intelligent assistant Now you can use your voice to use your iPhone. Just talk to Siri as you would to a person: “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Any great burgers around here?” or “Where’s the closest ATM?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, it answers you. Siri makes phone calls, sends messages, schedules meetings, sets reminders, and more. How much more? Just ask, and Siri tells you that, too.
  • newegg Dual-core A5 chip Two cores in the A5 chip deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics. And you’ll feel the effects. Fast. iPhone 4S is quick and responsive, which makes all the difference when you’re launching apps, browsing the web, gaming, and doing just about everything. And no matter what you’re doing, you can keep on doing it. Because the A5 chip is so power-efficient, iPhone 4S has outstanding battery life.
  • newegg The you-can’t-believe-it’s-on-a-phone camera The iPhone 4S camera gives you 8 megapixels - that’s 60 percent more pixels than the camera on iPhone 4 - along with a new custom lens with five precision elements, larger f/2.4 aperture and advanced hybrid infrared filter. Not to mention an improved backside illumination sensor, excellent auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, face detection, and reduced motion blur. It all means that no matter how many people, how much light, and how much action you capture, everything looks exactly as it should. And just wait until you see the photos.
  • newegg Video recording in 1080p amazing HD Shoot stunning 1080p HD video everywhere you go. With all-new optics, the light is always right, the color is always vivid, and everything will look even better than you remember. Video stabilization steadies shaky shots. And you can edit video right on iPhone and share your lush life as fast as you shoot.
  • newegg iOS 5, iCloud With every iOS advancement come even easier ways to do everything. That’s what makes iOS years ahead of anything else. iOS 5 leaps even further ahead, bringing over 200 new features to iPhone 4S. iCloud is the easiest way to manage all your stuff, because it manages it all for you. iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more. And wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. It’s automatic, effortless, and seamless.
  • newegg FaceTime FaceTime lets you hear a voice and see the face that goes with it — iPhone to iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi. So no matter where they are, no matter where you are, you’ll always be there. Making a FaceTime call is just as easy as making a phone call. And it’s even easier with Siri. Just tell Siri “FaceTime with Mom” and you show up, smile, and wave hello. You’ll never miss a big event, an important meeting, or a good laugh. And who wouldn’t be happy to see your face?

5 out of 5 eggsgreat phone, great way to buy it

Pros: *capable of doing a truly incredible amount of things
*an all-in-one replacement for many electronic devices
* warranty provided by Apple, is the exact same as for a brand-new iphone
*!capable of being "factory unlocked" by Apple, via user request to AT&T! -a huge plus
*you will grow ever more attached to the amazing usefulness of this phone, as the days pass
*and of course, it's great with calls
*can be used with discount provider "Straight Talk", even while still locked to AT&T! Use Straight Talk's "unlimited" text talk and web, for $45/month (no hidden fees!), though you will actually still be using AT&T's towers. note: there are "hidden data limits" of: 2GB/month, and/or 200MB/day, -don't go over!
BTW, those hidden data limits are SAME as with carrier AT&T's "unlimited" plan, which is far more expensive, but provides nothing extra.
*FYI, I strongly advise "jailbreaking" your iphone, to release yourself from Apple's unreasonable restrictions of the true capability of your ip

Cons: *expensive (though perhaps, still a good "value")
*by default (ie, "unjailbroken state"), Apple has locked-away many useful features!
* accessories (such as the $40 digital A/V connector cable) are hyper-expensive (typical of Apple)
*IMHO, if you do not jailbreak, you are a victim of Apple's oppressive marketing scheme. Jailbreak, but you don't have to automatically go crazy changing everything afterward. Put another way: "Please jailbreak responsibly".
note: jailbreaking your iphone is perfectly legal! It's only what nefarious things you might choose to do after...
I am ethically opposed to letting Apple dictate how much I may utilize my electronics. I resent the way they lock-out my phone's capabilities.
To me, using Apple products is like watching the great and powerful Oz, and being awstruck and happy with that experience.
Jailbreaking your Apple product is like finally discovering the man behind the curtain.
Using jailbroken products is like being the man behind the curtai

Other Thoughts: *wifi/network connections are stubborn and very quirky, and they often require an on/off toggle in settings to correct. -or even a phone reboot (it's a problem that persists, even with new OS updates)
*Apple's resistance to support things like "Adobe Flash", make using an iphone, much more difficult than it need be.
*Note: This phone CAN be "factory unlocked" by Apple.
contact AT&T, by phone (←very important) to make the request. My request was first denied by email ("illegible" receipt), where they require that you fax them a copy of your original receipt. Oddly, there is no email forwarding of receipt possible/allowed. My email request was quickly rejected. Then I called them. After speaking to a grouchy old lady that said (and I quote) "I've never heard of newegg" and then, even more unbelievably "newegg is just the same as fleabay". (←how could she possibly know that, after she just admitted she'd never even heard of newegg?) Despite how it all irked her, my request was approved

1 out of 5 eggsmust have ha a bad unit

Pros: Looks fancy

Cons: Cost me money with weird power surges causing replacement of 2 hard drives and many hours troubleshooting strange BSOD crashes.

Other Thoughts: I've been getting bsod's for 6 months and have had to replace 2 hard drives due to this thing. Can only guess this was surfing power to all things connected. On day tree of no issues after new different brand supply installed. No help from customer service either.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome deal

Pros: Looks totally new, camera awesome, screen makes ur eyes pop, it is gorgeous. If you have used iphones, you know what you are getting.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was totally scared about getting att to unlock this phone, i live out of the country. Some reviewers said they had no problem with att unlocking it.

Well, to save 140 i bought it, had my nephew, long time att customer call att service and ask for unlock, they needed the iemi number and receipt from newegg, when they got it, i recieved an email saying to connect to itunes and it would be unlocked. I did. After software download, update, waiting... Congrats, your phone is unlocked!! Popped in my local sim (i used a cutter to get it micro size) and in seconds, was connected to my local service, very happy. Dont be afraid of being stuck with att. This is 1000x better than any other kind of unlock method

1 out of 5 eggsOnly received an empty box - twice!

Pros: None, unless you like imaginary phones.

Cons: Everything. The first box came to my MA address empty. I called Newegg, gave them a different address in CT to send a new one to, and that one ALSO arrived empty!

Other Thoughts: If you like headaches, you'll love spending nearly $500 and several hours of your time trying to get a box with an actual phone in it, only to give up and settle for a refund.

5 out of 5 eggsWorthy replacement to 3GS and BB

Pros: Speedy, great web experience, tons of useful apps, great screen, well built, Siri works good enough,

Cons: Typing is good, but not great as on a BB
Siri works good enough, but not great and limitations abound

Other Thoughts: I'm using it on Straight Talk prepaid, which is half the monthly cost than most postpaid carriers (AT&T and verizon).

The phone is great. I've been using BB's since 2005, and then early this year, I made switch to the 3gs. The 3gs was ok, but it was Slow and painful to use. It really made me miss my blackberry's speed and composure.

However, this 4s is super fast. While my typing will not rival my speed on BB, its very close. Luckily I don't compose that many emails or txts anymore, so I prefer that the 4s can do more intensive internet tasks with minimum of effort.

If you are on BB or iPhone 3gs, you really need to upgrade to the iPhone 4s. The phone is sturdy (I dropped it the 2nd day on concrete sidewalk on there were the minimum of scratches on the side), though, I don't think it will handle multiple drops and survive like a BB does. Everything else on this phone is great, fast and fun to use.

And the phone as a refurb from newegg still has 6 months of Apple warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsReplacement phone came

Pros: Replacement, for stolen phone, came quickly. Thanks for taking care of this Newegg. Refurbished looks great, AT&T copied over everything and cheap go plan is working just fine.

Cons: Same flimsy box that was "tampered" with the first time. Glad it made it through this time!

Other Thoughts: The phone is great, just works...

1 out of 5 eggsBox was empty inside

Pros: Delivery was fast as usually. But..............

Cons: It`s something unbelievable! When I open the box - it was empty. Actually, there were package list with description of item (iPhone 4S) and full box of brown paper. It was Newegg box, taped all of way around as a suppose to be. And no iPhone inside

3 out of 5 eggsempty box no item inside

Pros: New Egg is replacing item, stolen during delivery. In this case, don't yell at New Egg, shoot the messenger(not literally of course).

Cons: Packaging led to easy theft. A box inside a box would probably fix the technique, a slit on the botton of the box under the tape, flap pulls out without disturbing the tape, item removed and flap reinserted. Bummer.

5 out of 5 eggsLike new, just a few hundred dollars less

Pros: Phone looks like new, no scratches, marks, etc. Comes with Apple headphones, charger, and cable, all in Apple iPhone box.

Upgraded from 3GS on straight talk to the 4s. Trimmed the sim (sweated a lot), but upon plug in (and setting up APN) worked like a champ.

Oh, and shipping was very fast (but I live on east coast).

Cons: No Sim tool. No instruction card.

Other Thoughts: Note from the Con's they are so minor, but that is all I could come up with.
