    Nope. The 5 was mainly a hardware and form factor update.

    So how much did Sprint actually give you for the 4S? Just curious what the trade in value is vs. the used market value.

    LTE, 4" screen, lighter and thinner chassis, A6 processor and upgraded camera...that's the gist of it.

    I was hoping to trade my 4 in for whatever the new one was in December but Verizon bumped my upgrade date back 4 months due to their new policy that you have to wait the full 24 months instead of 20.

    If he paid $67 for the phone and was only credited $185, I trust you can figure out the math. Non-contract are closer to $600+. Contract phones count as an upgrade. For $240, was it an upgrade or a non-contract?

    Not really because i was given a 4s from a friend and all i did was pay a connection fee and that was it, it did not count towards my upgrade simply why i asked because i have sprint as well

    I don't think there is a point of upgrading to a 5 if you have a 4s cause there is not much of an upgrade unless u want the newest device.. But for me I came from a iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5 and love it don't know when my next upgrade of phone will be or which iPhone ill move onto next after the 5

    I have three lines on plan and one of them was eligible for an upgrade and I use that on my main line

    There's plenty different between the iPhone 5 and the 4S...LTE being at the top of that list, data speeds that the 4S can't even come close to.

    If your in a good LTE area the 5 will run 5 times faster than the 4s but If not its the same data speeds on 3G but the camera is better the screen is better batterylife is way better my 5 actually last a full day

    I don't know about speed wise on the 4s cause I never owned one but I did have a 4 before and the 5 is much faster I can see the improvement but alot of ppl tell me that the 4s and the 5 is not much of a difference I don't know :/

    From the 4s to the 5 it's few differences the speed is the biggest difference I believe what comes second is screen brightness third is batterylife you will get better batterylife with the 5
