Verizon iphone 4 upgrade to iphone 5??
Ok so i am on sprint, and thinking about jumping to verizon for the iphone 4, was thinking bout waiting for the iphone 5, but by the time this happens im pretty sure verizon will not have unlimited data available..
I wonder if i get the iphone 4 now, will be able ot upgrade to the iphone 5 when it comes out in june? Or at least next year.. Or will i be stuck with the iphone 4 for 24months!! Who has some answers for me????
Doesnt att users get to upgrade every time a new iphone comes out even tho they are under contract?

you will be stuck with the contract you sign. verizon isnt going to let everyone upgrade if they have the iphone 5 in the summer which right now is all speculation. I personally think they will wait to release their next iphone as an LTE phone which most likely wont be until a year or so.

Here is something I keep finding odd though.... Every time Verizon or Apple has been asked this question, all they will say is that they won't let their loyal customers be unhappy. Now what does that mean?

Here are my thoughts.
*Verizon got the iPhone in February of 2011.
*White iPhone rumored to be "spring" 2011
IF the iPhone 5 comes out this summer, I think it may be AT&T only, followed by Verizon in Jan/Feb.
While we won't know for sure until it happens, we have heard NOTHING on the next iPhone as far as leaks. We knew EVERYTHING about the iPhone 4 by this time last year. This leads me to believe the next iPhone will be released on both carriers at the same time, either layer this year (pre Christmas) or just after the first of the year. I don't even think if it does come out next January it will be LTE. I don't think the networks will be ready yet and the advancements in the chips to avoid "compromises" Apple doesn't want to to make.

ok it may not be adding much...but this is some funny sh*t right here.
Dude, the Iphone 4 was released last July. It was released on AT&T. Then in Febuary, Apple developed an Iphone with a CDMA service chip in the phone to work on the Verizon network, and there is still a seperate GSM compatible Iphone.
