Who's keeping their iPhone 4?
Let's hear it from the folks like me, locked into contracts with their iPhone 4s and actually okay with it. Yeah, I've had my AT&T iPhone 4 for a year and three weeks, now, and it's no longer the "best." But, it's still plenty good for me! It does everything I need it to - in fact, it's kind of scary how much I rely on it...:P
This is actually the first phone I've gotten and stuck with it. I used to switch phones every six months, literally. I've had a Motorola Razr, a Samsung SGH-A727, LG Shine, Samsung BlackJack II, Samsung Jack, BlackBerry Bold 9000, BlackBerry Bold 9700, and finally, my iPhone 4. This is by far the best phone I've ever owned.
That being said, come February 25th (my upgrade eligibility date), I see a 64gb white 4S in my future. The 4 will be sticking around, though. I trust it too much to sell it.

True. I mean, I can't deny it. I thought the 4S looked amazing, and if I had the money, I'd grab one. But the off-contract price is just astronomical.http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b3...DSC0257222.jpg

Although I don't really upgrade anything on an annual basis, hardware or software. I generally purchase every other upgrade; for me it seems like a better investment.

Siri is nice, but how much of a dbag are you going to look like talking to your phone like that? It's not going to be something WIDELY used. It's something I'd use in the car to send a text if needed, maybe move an appointment ( again, while in the car ) but other than that? It's nice, but I think most people will forget about it in a few weeks time and it will be just a faster iPhone 4.
I'm up for an upgrade now, my wife eligible in February. We are waiting until the next model, not because we have to but because the iPhone 4 is still a solid device after 1 year. At the 2 year make it will definitely be showing its age, but until then I think we're ok.

I'm keeping mine because I'm stuck on my 3yr contract and just swapped my black iP4 for a white back in may.
The 4s looks like a nice upgrade but im happy with my 4

I'm keeping my 4 for now. The 4s is great but not great enough to get sell my 4. Plus I decided the next iPhone I get I'm going to keep the previous one and make it my "iPod touch". Also, I can't upgrade till 10/12.

I'm keeping my 4 as well, although I really like the beefed up specs of the iPhone 4S. I just can't justify changing phones right now. My iPhone 4 still works great!AT&T iPhone 5 16GB White iOS 6.1 - Sven

Keeping my iPhone 4 .. It's plenty fast enough for me. I never seem to be overcome with anger that my twitter feed takes longer than 2 seconds to load. "Twice as fast" doesn't really seem like a big selling point to me - especially when it looks exactly the same. The improved camera seems nice, but they didn't seem to make any improvements on the front facing camera, which is what I was hoping they would improve. I agree with the d-bag comment talking to your iPhone with Siri. It's a cool feature to have one of those, "Look what my phone can do" moments .. but other than that, meh. Actually touching an app to open it and find out the weather isn't heartbreaking enough to upgrade (or at all)."It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle

I'm going to go ahead and upgrade. I've got my 4 sold for $300, and I ordered the 16GB i4S for $199 and I'm going to get a new Seidio case and a car charger, so it's a wash, why not?i4S Jailbroken

I'm sticking with the 4 because I can't easily afford the upgrade cost right now, and the 4S isn't enough of an upgrade to make me want to give up on the 4. I still works fine for me. But if I could easily afford to drop $600 on new phones (i can't upgrade without getting one for my wife as well) and I could sell my 32gb 4 for $300 it'd be worth it because that would make the 4S 32Gb net cost only $50 more than the upgrade price, which is a reasonable additional cost for upgrading in less than a year.

I have 5 iP4s on my account and we aren't up for an upgrade until 12/12 so I will be staying right where I am! I kept my 3G for over two years and it was still going strong when I sold it for my iP4. I love my iP4! Sure I would love Siri and the new camera and faster is always better. I am VERY HAPPY with what I have and will be happy for my friends that get the iP4S!
