Love my iPhone. Was a skeptic at first but once I got my hands on one...everything was awesome. Smart phones are anything but bs.
It depends on what you use it for. It's the data plans and overages, 2 year plans, phones that break instantly with insurance payments and deductibles that are BS. Paying for data AND text. If you like spending hundreds a month on phone go ahead. I am family plan with my parents and I pay them $10 a month. Free calls on AT&T network and I don't spend enough time on the phone to ever use up their minutes.
