Yes, iPhone 4 is boring me, home button is sticking, and running apps slow compared to my new iPad. I didn't opt for a 4S so its a definite for me. I'll try out ATT LTE in Miami and hope it works better than the 3g which sucks. Otherwise next time I will switch to Verizon or Sprint.

I'm completely happy with my iPhone 4 except the tiny screen.
If the rumors turn out to be true (tall skinny screen and new dock connector) then I'll pass and start looking seriously at Android or wait for iPhone 6 (or whatever) and maybe pick up a used 4S in the meantime.
If Apple surprises us with a screen that's significantly larger in both dimensions then I'm in, even if I have to buy new cables and accessories.
I voted "no" based on current rumors.

I've had all 5 iPhones to date...with that said this thing better DAZZLE me or I'm pulling chalks...sick of being the small kid with the old OS. And if this thing is 16:9 I'm out as well...can't understand the philosophy of a company that thinks we only watch movies on our phones in our spare time.

Probably not for the currently 'revealed' upgrades. I currently have an iPhone 4 and will wait to see what the next iPhone looks like before I go with a 4S or the new one. Like some others here, I have accessories which would require replacement. I really like my LifeProof case and can't see just ditching it for a bigger screen.

Nope! And I don't see any compelling reason to upgrade to iOS 6 either. I've been on the bleeding edge all my life and I'm tired of getting burnt. First the BB Torch, then the BB Playbook, and then 2 iPhone 4s's (mine and my wife's) that have been problems from day one. There isn't enough apparent new innovation in the iPhone 5 to entice me to be a Guinea pig yet again.

Tough to say for me. My wife has a BB Bold (previous gen) and I have the current 9930 Bold.
I love my phone and hers is due for an upgrade. She is getting one and I MIGHT. I am not a big app user as it is a phone, email and calendar device mostly. (Imagine That )
From what I have seen I like it but I love my keyboard. BUT I just can't wait until January to get the new BB10 device plus I would rather wait a year just in case.
Bought the iPad 3 the day it came out. Kids love being able to play with our BB Playbook and iPad so I bought another iPad. Obviously the bug has bitten.
I have 15 phones so there is always an upgrade available for me to use so I am leaning towards doing it.

I'm not sure yet as I'm waiting to see what new features will be released in iOS6. As of right now, I'm torn between the iPhone 5 and one of the new WP8 devices that will be released later this year. I've grown tired of Android, even with the release of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Nexus. I'm looking for something that runs smoothly and has great battery life as well as LTE. I like the idea of the iPhone 5 only being slightly larger than the 4S as the huge Android phones are bigger than I'd like, not to mention the fact that even stock Android can lag big time. As far as I'm concerned, it would take a Nexus device from Motorola to get me to consider Android again.
Depending on what is revealed about WP8, I think that will be good competition for iOS. While WP7 may be lacking a little bit on the features, it still runs extremely smoothly without bleeding edge tech. In my time with it, WP7 was fun to use and with the new basis for WP8, things should run very well and have a lot more functionality. All I can say is that with all of the different platforms out there, it's a great time to be in the market for a new phone.

I will be upgrading!!! We have Sprint, and when I got my last phone, they didn't have the Iphone yet So I ended up with the Samsung Epic, which has been pretty buggy, and I'm sick of it.
Last year, my husband was able to upgrade his phone, and he got the iPhone 4S. Comparing my Android phone vs his iPhone, there is no question, my next phone will be an iPhone!
I'm eligible to upgrade on Sept 1st.....perfect timing, I'll wait a few weeks for the iPhone 5 (or whatever they call it!!)

There should have been a maybe in the selection process, so I chose yes, but, its a yes, maybe. Yes if its what I expect it to be, bigger, better and badder than last years. No if it fails to impress me although its not likely it would.
As much as the GS3 looks great and nothing like an iOS device I can't get past the lack of Android OS updates or 9+ month delays in updates due to carrier interference. So the next iPhone will go nicely with my new iPad 3 and my MBP that is getting a memory upgrade so I can wait a while longer before replacing it.
