I bought the white iPhone 4 when it came out in 2011, so I can't upgrade with the discount (Verizon) until January 1. Once that date comes, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm jumping to the iPhone 5. The only sad part - I'll finally have to give up my unlimited data plan.

I actually have 2/3 lines out of contract right now. The plan is I get the 5 and pass on my 4s to hubby. Keep the third line out of contract ready for when the "5s" comes out. Basically I'm the only one who ever gets a new iPhone. The rest don't care so much. Lucky me! Oh and what's up with so many people losing unlimited plans with Verizon? I'd stage some sort of revolt! That's just wrong!

Many of us. Bought iPhone4S and from that day on we knew we are going to sell this phone and buy iPhone5 when it comes out.
Why? Because if you do that. Your only paying at most 200~300 each year for a phone.
Moreover, since we know that we are going to upgrade. setting aside say.. $50 a month for iPhone 5 since 12 months ago + the money you made from selling 4S would have been more than adequate to buy a fresh iPhone without contract.
Given the fact that most of us have a 2 years plan.
Year 1 we pay $200 for iPhone.
Year 2 we pay $700-$350(assuming the fact that you sold it around that price) = $350
Year 3 we pay $200-$350 = -$150
Year 4 we pay $700-$350-$150= $200 ( it's the same as year 1!)
So in the end. We get the latest phones. The most awesome one every year. and ENJOY the phone. at the price of some cheapstake lousy *** android phone. I don't see why we shouldn't upgrade!

I bought the iphone 4 when it came out on Verizon which means that I get an upgrade in October. Sucks that I can't get the phone when it comes out, but I'd think that Verizon is risking their release day buzz, since the huge mass of people that bought the 4 at release don't qualify for promo pricing until Oct. 7 at the earliest.

Ever since I got the iPhone 3G, I have been eligible to upgrade for the new iPhone (my line is >$100 per month, and I have rumor has it that is one of the criteria). I upgraded summer 2009 (3GS), summer 2010 (4), fall 2011 (4S).
However, I just checked my eligibility this year, and it said I am not eligible until 5/7/13!!
I am going to call AT&T tomorrow and find out what is going on. Have they changed their criteria? Why do I not get the 1 year upgrade this time?
If push comes to shove, I have another family member using a 3GS. They want to upgrade to the iPhone 4S, so I will give them mine, sell their phone, and pay for a new phone. I still want to know why I am not eligible for an upgrade this year though.

Sadly I don't have an upgrade coming up but since a significant amount of concrete iPhone 5 info started coming out I've been calling about issues with my current phone. Couple that with the fact that I've had a number of replacement devices I got my carrier to agree to give me an early upgrade.
