I love my IPhone 4s. I got it in white the very first day it came out, and now I am addicted to it. It is a brilliant phone, and now I've had it I could not live without it, sleek, stylish and do easy to use, it truly is- in my opinion- a touch of pure class. All while apple are making iPhones, they will be the only phone I will have.
