since i upgraded last month to an iphone 4 last month at a best buy mobile store on tax free day i opted for the buy back program. if i return the phone within 6 months i get 60% retail value of the phone. so i subtract that from a no contract iphone 5 price, and get about what i paid for the 4. So hopefully the iPhone 5 will be out before February.

It's not that i'm bored with my iPhone 4, it's that i usually upgrade and get a new phone every year and this is getting a little long in the tooth. The anticipation for the new iPhone is HUGE is the Apple community. I just don't think many of us could wait much longer...

^ well I can see how that would be a benefit in your case. However, I pay full retail for my iPhones in order to stay out of a contract, therefore in my case, buying a minimal upgraded iPhone at the full retail price even after selling my iPhone 4 wouldn't be worth it.

Bring it on, Already....
I hope the pre-orders are shipped early again like last year. I really enjoyed having the 4 2-days before you could get it at the store...

I think Apple would be making a huge mistake to play it safe right now when there are some absolute monster phones in the pipeline from the competition. The iPhone 5 not only has to compete with what's out already, but for the next year, an iPhone "4s" would look pretty silly compared to some of the stuff I've read about.
I love the Apple ecosystem, but a retina 4-4.5 inch screen phone with 2-4 cores, and other crazy specs just might be enough for me to jump ship, I could keep my iP4 and use it like a Touch so I have all my apps etc..
You also have to take into account that if people sign new contracts next month they might not be eligible for an upgrade until early 2013, meaning a lot of people would be stuck with this 4s until the iPhone 7 came out. So there's no way I'm wasting my upgrade for a speed bump which really would only benefit me when waiting for pics to render with apps like Hipstamatic, I need a good reason to upgrade. And if companies like Samsung or HTC can come out with a zillion phones a year of all shapes, sizes, and resolutions, Apple can surely give us one. If they can't, well hello Nexus Prime.

I absolutely love my iPhone 4, I don't need to prove anything, like I said, to be worth upgrading, a phone is going to to have to be a large step up from the iPhone 4.
The biggest issue I have is I'm finding more and more apps and websites that have seemed to outgrow the 3.5" screen, which is why I'm hoping Apple goes with something a bit bigger. That and the fact that my job would be greatly served by me having a phone with a notification light. And then there's the whole phone call thing, which the iPhone has never been really good at, the speaker phone is nearly useless, and I can't hear people unless I'm in nearly total quiet. Why do the speakers on other phones seem to be much much louder? And then there's the whole antenna thing, they need to redesign the phone for that reason alone.
There are millions of people like me out there, balls in Apple's court.

I anticipate that most people who voted "yes" won't be getting the iPhone 5..
It always depends on what happens and what they want.
They say yes now, but when they see what it looks like and it's features they might not get it (their personal preference).
I just chose "maybe" because I'd like to see what it will look like and include.

I've had my 3GS for over 2 years and have resisted my urge to upgrade to an iPhone 4 or switch to Android. I've been patient and completely loyal to Apple even after I heard the news in March there would be no new iPhone at WWDC. I've waited long enough. The iPhone 5 is my gift for patience and come hell or high water. I'm getting a new iPhone.
