    I would love to get it, but honestly, I am very happy with my 4. The 5 has a nice bigger screen, but I think I can wait another year for the next release...maybe....Most of my reason not to upgrade is that of Verizon and their LTE tiered pricing data bullcrap. To not allow me to keep grandfather is just ridiculous. I hope there is some kind of thing they do that will allow us to keep it. Because I am not ridding of it. I don't need FAST speeds. Unless they throw in a free $2000 in my bank account then I will reconsider. Otherwise I am just as happy with my 4.....plus I can jail break and all that good stuff so it's not like I'm in the dust.

    I was eligible for an upgrade shortly after the 4S came out, I forced myself to hold out for LTE. It'll totally be worth it.

    I just got my 4s in June bc the proposed i5 rumors (mostly proven true) did not impress. And I could get the i5 at discounted pricing too. Just not in love with it.

    I'm still completely on the fence. The more I look at it though the more I think I could deal with the awkward design.
    That's exactly where I'm standing right now. The first time I saw it during the videos, I shuddered at the design. It almost appalled me...

    But, now, the more I see it, especially next to a 4S, the more I think "I guess it's not THAT bad..."

    Yet, still, some shots of the phone make me shudder. It just looks so awkward sometimes...

    most definitely. not enough new features to even consider it. I'm happy with my 4S for now (plus I still have two replacements left)

    What really helped me was to look at the video of the reporters that got to go back to the hands-on area after the main presentation. Watching them use it for real made me totally comfortable with the new size. And the speed was killer.

    I just got a new iphone 4S in September to replace my nonworking droid razr due to all the crazy software updates that android puts out - I love my 4S and will not upgrade as it does everything I need and can't not justify paying full blown price for the 5. I will wait for my upgrade date which is like Jan 2014 who knows what will be out then!!

    I'm most likely sitting this one out or will take advantage of the price drop on the 4S to upgrade my 4. LTE isn't available in my area so that doesn't matter to me.

    Looks like 4S owners will get the built in panorama camera too! Another reason a 4S owner should sit this one out.

    After much thought, I bought my 4S in April because I fell in love with the design and feel of the phone. I am VERY happy with this phone and do not feel the need for a new one at this point. Besides, 5 doesn't offer enough of a difference to bring on that "have to have" itch.

    I just got my iPhone 4S in February and I live everything about it. However, as of right now I think I am going to skip this years model just because I don't need the 4G LTE speeds because I don't download much and just use my data for web browsing and such.

    I will be eligible for an upgrade 9/27 but I don't plan on using that because I'm not going to give up my unlimited data.

    Also, the .5" screen would be nice but I am still fine with the size of this phone screen.

    With the iOS 6 upgrade coming, that will tide me over as far as needing something "new" to play with? For a while.

    Anyone else in a similar situation?
    Yeah.

    Just got our 4S's in February, as well. The 5S will probably be our next phone, a year and a half from now. There should be plenty of accessories, fewer bugs, and an upgrade path by then.

    For now, I'm hoping we will clean up on cheap docks and cables n stuff.

    I got my 4S last fall when it was released, so I'll sit this one out. I love my 4S and though it's pretty, iOS 6 will give me all the new features I need.
    My husband was due for an upgrade, he decided to go for a discounted 4S instead. We popped into the AT&T store this morning and got a 32gb 4S for $199. Sweet deal if you ask me.
