You should still be able to get a new contract with the subsadized price even if your upgrading. You might need to pay etf if ur using the same #, and you wont get that upgrade discount if ur not elegible yet, but should still be able to get the contract and subsadized, advertized price.
My question is if i can save money buying it outright on sprint. I think the plans cost the same, so the only advantage is no etf when u want to leave?

I used a Verizon upgrade from a Palm Pre+. If I choose to buy the next gen iPhone in 2012, my 4S will go to someone in my family who doesn't yet use a smartphone of any kind.

I joined my friends family plan and am letting my line on my current family plan expire.
Seeing as how i am not the account holder (but authorized user) i was unable to do an early termination.
Its only 10 bucks for 3 months so ha, not to big of a drainage.

I have a funny feeling apple will not release the iphone5 in one year. i feel like we could see the next iphone in a year and a half or two years. what do you think? i just dont see how they keep coming out with new phones each year because they have so expensive to get if you are not upgrading

Upgrade price here. I returned my newly purchased Moto Photon at the end of August when the rumblings of a Sprint iPhone were getting really strong. That return reset my upgrade, and I used a POS Samsung Intercept for a month and a half waiting for the iPhone. Happy days are here again!

But I do agree that Apple will not have any issue finding a market for their products - phones, iPads and computers.

BTW, if you take good care of your iPhones, the resale value is usually very strong and cuts the cost of upgrading every year to the $200-300 range depending on if your carrier gives you any sort of one year discount. That's still not chump change, but it's not the $700+ that it would otherwise cost.

Ordered mine unlocked from Apple for the first time this year...
I may just sell it online though and not even open it, cause I just bought a MacBook Air and an iPad 2 and I like my iPhone 4 just fine. Some of them are going online for like $1600. I don't know really if Siri is worth almost $900 of my money to keep ($749+tax). iPhone 4 32GB
MacBook Air 13.3" (May 2011)

And I'm an Apple shareholder, too. So I am doing my part to keep my investment (in the company AND the devices) up.
