    All the core apps are the same either way. The messaging/email/phone portion doesn't change. So I agree sticking with the 4 right now is a pretty good choice until the 5s specs gets released.

Other than that I am perfectly content for once in my life and I'll be hanging on to this one for some time.
    I was told by Verizon that even if I brought my own iPhone 5 that I would lose the unlimited data when I swapped off the iPhone 4. So when my contract was up I moved to Sprint.

    I have had the first of them all. The original, the 3G, the 4, and now the 5. I did get the 4S when I first moved to sprint because of the price but it felt too much like my 4 and didn't seem like an upgrade (even though it was a better phone). I will stay with the 5 until at least the 6 comes out. I do the same in my house I get the new one and the kids get the old ones bumped down.

    Yeah, Cook really upset the apple cart (pun intended ) when Apple released the iPad 4 in late 2012 after releasing the iPad 3 in early 2012. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple does release the iPhone 5s in about the March/April time frame.

    I'd like to get the iPhone 5 but not pay an arm and a leg (I've been buying my devices off-contract), so a spring 2013 release for the iPhone 5s would be ideal for me (because the iPhone 5 price would drop).

    BTW, I think my iPhone 4 is still a solid performing device.

    For whatever it is worth, I retained my unlimited data on Verizon on my primary line when I swapped out a 3G CDMA WP7 (HTC Trophy) for a 4G LTE Android (Samsung Galaxy Nexus). I think the only way someone can lose unlimited data is if he/she upgrades via the subsidy.

    I will stick with the S version of every phone they roll out. Skipped 4 and got the 4s. Skipped 5 and getting the 5s (probably if it is really attractive). Skipping 6 and getting the 6s
    Why? Cos in my opinion first series is sort of 'beta' if you will.

    I remember when the 4s was announced and everyone thought that there weren't going to be any big changes, but people loved it. I DO look forward to the 5s, but depending on what the cost is, the 5 may be more appealing.

    I am holding off because Apple and ATT asked me to til we figure out why I go through the 4S like underwear. They can't figure out what the issue is and it's been going on since my 4 was stolen last year. Its very frustrating. I got a gift card to put towards a 5 for Xmas, but I am sitting on it for now. I am hoping it's figured out sometime soon. Either for the 5 or the 5S.

    The reason the 5 has been necessary, not nice to have, for me is the superior call reception/coverage. My 4s was awful, and I had multiple ones. My house is in a Bermuda Triangle of AT&T coverage, and the 5 is such a huge improvement. From a work perspective, I couldn't have done the 4s any more. It does bite that with this new improvement, I had to take a step back on wifi connectivity...but i am unlimited and lte is available.....c'est la vie.

    My 4 stopped staying on for whatever reason. I managed to get it to stay on long enough to sync with iTunes. My upgrade was available back in oct and I wanted to hold out till the 5S but my 4 had other plans. Other than losing my unlimited with VZW I'm pretty happy the 5

    The lack of a jailbreak has kept me from getting an iphone 5.

    I have been holding out for a bigger screen! I would love a 4.5" or whatever it would come out to be! I like the length of the 5 just wish it was wider. So I am totally torn. Keep 4s? Try to hold out for 6? Decisions Decision!! But when it all comes down to it my 4s works as good as it did the day I bought it!!

    I was planning to wait for the 5S knowing it will be released early in 2013. But then I was like 'screw it' and got myself the iPhone 5.

    Ill hold out for the iPhone 6. Ill get the iOS 7 update so will essentially be the same, maybe a tad slower but I can deal with it.

    I would love a bigger screen too. I have been fighting with my inner conscious (sp?) on whether to upgrade to the 5 (or wait for the rumored 5S) for a little over a week now. Previously i was considering the G-Note2, but after looking long and hard at what I really want/like - i've always come back to iOS. I was actually in BestBuy Thurs night(?) and was really really close to purchasing a white 32G. i decided to hold off because of the rumored 5S that maybe due out in June, was ringing in my head.

    So Jebulls, like you in very torn because my 4S is in pristine condition, but at the same time as ForgWorm, i just want to say screw it too and upgrade!! i cant decide now.

    So yes, i take back my previous post in this thread lol. the rumored 5S is totally messing with my decision right now!

    A newer, faster, more advanced phone is always around the corner. I don't let the prospect of a newer model phone determine whether I buy or upgrade. I buy based on what I need, and right now the 4s meets my requirements.

    I have to agree with Fit24. My 4S meets my needs on a daily basis for my productivity and runs perfect So, in a way I really can't justify spending the money on another phone right now either

    It really is worth the upgrade! So much better than the 4s. Size,camera,screen,LTE,speed! To name a few.

    I just got a 5 because changing carriers allowed me to jump all over LTE. I'm loving it again. The great thing about iPhones is the value they keep, so as someone else mentioned its also only an incremental cost once you sell the older model.

    I third that! I usually get every iPhone released but this time I'm waiting to see what the 5s brings. I'm rocking the 4s now and content.

Hahaha and if I still feel this way when the 5S is released, I suppose I'll have to make a doctor's appointment...
