At this juncture based on all rumors to be correct I am going to say no...
Normally I always upgrade, and if not for the body and charging port change I would have upgraded.
The current iPhone 4S works perfectly for me 99% of the time, I have no real issues or complaints. I am beta testing iOS 6 (beta 3) and for the most part the changes I was hoping for are in the iOS and not the phone. iPhone 4S will run almost everything the same with the new iOS 6.0 full release.
The new iPhone (5) for lack of a final name, is not that different. OK, we have a few chip changes, faster, more memory, more storage and the Near Field stuff... all cool, but I can live w/o the Near Field for now, not sure if I would be using it anyway.
The killer for me, is the body change and the port change.
I have a LOT invested in cases, docks, charging cables, belt clips, Otter Box, etc.. to be tossing it all away to start over for changes that are not that huge.
So for me, unless I am missing something HUGE I can't justify the upgrade even though my GEEK status almost demands that I make the upgrade.
Only thing at this point that may change my mind is if my wife decides does does want my iPhone 4S I may do the 5 upgrade, or just get her a 4S when everyone dumps theirs to get the iPhoine 5.
So for now... Nope.. (sad to say)

I cannot give a definite answer until I physically see the new iPhone as presented by Apple when it is introduced. Seriously, I'm satisfied with my 4S and if the new iPhone isn't a significant improvement according to "me" then I won't upgrade. If I like the improvements then yes, I will get it.
Just Me, D

I absolutely will upgrade. It's how our family ecosystem works. I'm the dad. I get the new one, using an upgrade from one of the 5 lines on our family plan. Mom gets mine, child #1 gets Mom's, and so on. We've been upgrading that way for about 4 years now... the only exception is if Mom wants a new phone... then she gets one whenever she wants it...

I agree with alot of your points here Craig. I love my 4S as well & its runs great, plus i DON'T have an upgrade available either. And on top of that all, like you, i have alot invested in cases, cases, cases...oh and did i mention cases?!? LOL as well as charging cords-both home & car, and docks.
Also. iOS6 will be avail for the 4S with the few new added features - so that works for me if i decide to upgrade the iOS as well.
We ALL love to have a new device to dote on when its released of course, but i'll wait it out at this point
i am very excited to see when the new iPhone(5?) is release tho. I'm looking forward to see if Apple has gotten daring and changed the screen size or design of the phone.

Experience has taught me the following conditions to that common fallacy.
1. An UNHAPPY wife guarantees an unhappy life.
2. A happy wife doesn't GUARANTEE a happy life. It merely makes a happy life possible. There are still many ways one can screw it up.

Yes I am going to upgrade. Probably the only reason I am upgrading is that my iP4 Home button is totally dead. I am having to use a "virtual " Home button for now. I am not worried about all my accessories (cases). I have purposefully NOT bought anything in the last few months just to see what the iP5 looked like. Some of my Otterboxes are getting "long in the tooth" and starting to show their age! But I have certainly gotten my money worth from them though!
My only real problem is I have 5 iPhones in my house and they are all eligible to upgrade this Christmas! Although, everyone else's iP4 is still going strong and they are perfectly happy, including Momma, So we will see.
