Anyone else not getting a iPhone 5 till 2013?
Unfortunately, I let my brother use my upgrade to get a 4S because her cheap phone was dying and he needed a new one ASAP and feature phones were to overpriced. Now I am waiting till March to use his upgrade to get a shiny new iPhone 5. Anyone else doing the same? I guess I could possibly beg Verizon to upgrade me early but we already did that to get a 4S on another line 3 months early and I bet March is too far away . My phone was last replaced in April for a jammed power button and now drops signal like crazy. I would just pay $149 to replace it but I don't know if a 'genius" would say no if they "can't repeat the issue". I am jealous of everyone getting those snappy speeds on Verizon LTE.

mine was in may 2013 but i went on ahead and forked over the early upgrade fee from att to get it so instead of paying 199.00 i paid 487.00 but it was worth it and i will do the same thing come next year when the next iteration comes out because i am just that dude.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one in this boat. I skipped the 4s because I never buy my iPhones on contract. Well I got married which means I'm broke so I've entered every contest I can find because it is the only way I will get one before 2013.

I added a line to my account to get the iPhone 5. I'm due fir an upgrade in dec but don't want to lose my unlimited data. My brother has two upgrades in nov and wants the 4S. Going to buy 2 iPhone 5's and give him mine and my wife's 4S. My contact is up in may so I'm going to see what happens by sept/oct with the next iPhone

I love apple and all, but I will never pay 300 to 400 dollars for an iPhone. 200 dollars is my limit I only upgrade when I am eligible to do so. I think it's kinda crazy that apple can get people to pay 300-400 plus dollars for their new phone when they aren't even eligible for an upgrade. I certainly wouldn't be rushing out to get the 5s next year since I wouldn't be eligible to upgrade. I guess the next iPhone I will get will be the iPhone 6 or 7 lol. Anyway, can't wait until my iPhone 5 comes this week!
For example, a dude standing line line last Friday just got a 4s in like July and bought the iPhone 5 and paid like 500 or so dollars with the early upgrade fee etc. that's a little extreme in my book.
