The phones have different dimensions so I highly doubt it would fit. You might be able to force it on there somehow but it wouldn't line up perfectly or fit perfectly.

I still have my iphone that I bought 5 years ago. One battery change later it's still going strong.

2 to 3 years. I never buy on contract. Having a cell phone is a brutal money waster. This is one expense that many people skip when trying to cut expenses. The new Apple phones will be fantastic but not $700 fantastic. I read an interview of a financial analyst specializing in tech that said that Apple is trying to reduce the average time their customers take to upgrade Apple phones. Conservatively speaking, if you spend $80 a month on your phone (phone + data, talk, insurance, etc.) and multiply that by 12 months it comes out to $960 per year. In 10 years it's $9,600. Ouch!

Had the same Virgin Mobile phone for about 8 or so years now with no trouble. Costs me $30 every 3 months. It craps out, will get the same thing just newer.

I only get one when needed. I just got a iPhone 6 which I hate but it will be here. I had the Samsung 3 for a few years but the batteries don't hold a charge. I needed to charge a few times a day. I did buy 2 new batteries but they were the same thing after 2 weeks. Recently every time I would get a call and put it up to my ear it would disconnect. I didn't want another Samsung so I got the iPhone. I will keep it until it dies.
