    Many to choose from, 5c free with 2 yr. contract with Verizon, 4s free on ATT, 5s not free, $200.00 with 2 yr contract. Some say 5c is plastic, some say 5s best, what do the users think, recommend after using them, best deals out there?

    In addition, anyone know if any good deals wil be forthcoming in the near future on iphones like the 5s?

    5C cover is indeed plastic and it has a subset of features as the 5S. 5S is the top of the line and if you are getting a new iPhone today, I wouldn't get anything other than the 5C or 5S..

    The carrier depends on what you have and what you like, each of us have good and bad things to say about all the major ones..

    The deals depend on the carriers, so check out their websites..

    You think the 5c would be a good choice for the casual smartphone user and of course the price is free unless the carriers cpme out with an awesome deal on the 5s soon?

    Yeah the 5C is a perfectly good smartphone depending on what your day to day usage is. If you compare it to the 5S, it's only missing a few features and nothing that a casual user would miss likely..

    The 5c is a very capable phone. I have one and it does all I need it to do plus many other extras. As far as getting one for free... no one is giving them away including Verizon. They may subsidize the price but in the end you're paying for it. However, the nice thing about the Verizon iPhone 5c is that it's unlocked for GSM usage whereas if you get a phone from AT&T or Sprint, it will be locked. I have my 5c with T-Mobile and it too is unlocked.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Some of the "deals" I've seen on iPhones come with pretty big "catches":

    Virgin Mobile cuts prices on contract-free iPhone 5s, 5c models | Electronista

    So buyer beware. I don't think you're going to see any "exceptional" deals on the iPhone 5s, it is a premium phone and will be priced accordingly until it is replaced with the iPhone 6 (expected sometime this fall).
