    buying an iphone is voluntarily giving our fingerprints to US government and third party companies to misuse them.

        would not agree to that since only the mathematical representation of our fingerprints is saved and thats also only on the A7 chip rather then any remote servers or even on I CLOUD…..probably this is the same reason that apple is reluctant to give access to thirty party developers for TOUCH ID …!!!

      There are many carriers in US like at&t , T-mobile,sprint etc(eg. vodafone in india) which offer many mobiles like s4 ,iphone,htc one etc at a cheaper rate but to buy those handsets you have to do a 1 or 2 year contract with them. Those cotracts include your data usage,local at&t free calls and such stuff costing for $55 to $200 per month depending on which plan you choose. These mobiles will be cdma version allowing only AT&T customers to use it.
