    Post Pricing of Iphone 5

    Hi all, First time posting so be easy... Anyways, I was wondering if anyone knew the price points of the IPhone 5? Also, what would the pricing be of the IPhone 4 when the new one comes out? I'm contemplating on buying the IPhone 4 when the new one comes out but only if its alot cheaper than IPhone 5 (I'm talking about at least $100 difference). Any thoughts???

    Nobody really knows. Not until Apple makes their announcements

    My guess is that the iPhone 5 will be the same as what the 4 is now. However, as was said above no one really knows what the price will be until the iPhone 5 is announced.

    There would be some difference in price between iphone 4 and Iphone 5 but it want be too much. Apple would try to keep it within the reach of all its fans. It can be derived If anyone has observed the prices of iphone on their launch.

    I think Apple would price it similar to 4. Should not be too much difference.

    I would assume it'd be the same as it always has been in the past - $299 / $199 w/ 2 year contract. But no one knows for sure.

    I'd almost put money on the fact that the price will stay the same as it was for the iPhone 4, or perhaps even come down a little (a little more doubtful on that though). They'd be foolish to raise the price with the droid phones putting up a good fight these days...even with substantially better features, the price point keeps them well into the profit, and they sell out every piece of hardware they release...EVERY time.

    I'd be very surprised to see the price go up.

    It may change when LTE comes to the IPhone. They priced the Droid Charge @ $299 on contract so it's anyone's guess.

    ATT is selling iPhone 4, online, refurbished, blemished @
    $79.00/2nd contract. Have seen 5 purchased and no noticeable
    Flaws. All work and look like new. This is a great buy.
    ATT usually runs this discount fora short time and then
    stops until supply goes up again. Shorter warranty but
    worth the money at $79.00

    So its either I cough up $199 for IPhone 4 now or $199 for IPhone 5 later (unless pricing is $299 then I basically waited for nothing to pay $199 for an IPhone 4). What to do, what to do????

    The iPhone 5 is not going to be LTE capable, so it should be less than what the Droid Charge is selling for now.

    I agree, no LTE in the iPhone5.

    The past releases of the iPhone has always been $199/$299 based on the storage size... can't see Apple raising it at this point... and the talk is of a second, lower cost phone... so I expect the price of the iPhone5 to hold at $199/$299 based on size and a cheaper entry level model.

    The iPhone 5 prices will most likely be the same as the current new iPhone 4 prices. $199/$299 subsidized (don't recall what the partially or unsubsidized prices will be). iPhone 4 will probably be released as only one model (maybe 8GB, or maybe 16GB, who knows) for $99 subsidized. There may be various sales at some point like they have had for the older iPhones, but they have kept this pricing scheme for quite some time.

    Not necessarily. Those who have the 4 now and don't need a new phone might decide to wait for the iPhone 6.

    Dont think there will be a price increased until the LTE model comes out. For now, those LTE chips are expensive.

    I would assume that the cost for LTE is already taken into account into their new data pricing plans as well as the cost co break the contract (up to $350).

    I don't think so. I fully expect things to change with LTE... new prices on data plans, EFT will probably stay where it is, or a modest increase...

    The prices will most likely stay the same ($199 16GB and $299 32GB), or if anything Apple might lower them a bit or possibly add more storage at the same price points.

    The iPhone 4 will most likely be bumped down to $49 (w/ a 2-year contract). Although, Apple may make the iPhone 4 $99 or even free. If history is any guide, they'll also downgrade the storage of the iPhone 4 to 8GB (as the iPhone 3GS is now, which is sold for $49).
