    depends if you need a new phone right now or if you can wait a few more months and see if the iphone 5 will be coming to verizon this summer

    As a Tour user myself, I personally would jump on getting it ASAP, because I just CANNOT stand my BlackBerry. Plus, it's not definitive that Verizon will get whatever Apple releases in June... but it's up to you. My update's not until April 30, so I'm waiting...

    If I were you, I'd figure out what you use the phone for the most, and if the iPhone's going to make that more enjoyable, I'd switch. If it's not going to change too much, I'd hold out.

    Just my 2

    What I am going to do is just buy the iPhone 4 full retail leaving me eligible for an upgrade whenever, if ever verizon gets the next model... how it sounded in the press conference its going to be a long relationship so im not worried.

    Just my feeling on this, but I don't see Verizon getting iPhone 5 till late this year or next year. The signs point to the new iPhone just being a GSM version at first with the CDMA version coming later. I would say go for the iPhone 4 now and then you can always change to the new device later. I just don't see Verizon realeasing Iphone 4 now then in 3 or 4 months realeasing a new version of the iPhone.

    Steve Jobs said at CES last week that there would be no LTE iphone until next year. Am I the only one that read that?

    Wouldn't it be better to use your upgrade now, and then IF you want the phone released in June THEN pay full price? Then you spend less money upfront, and if the phone in June, say, isn't on Verizon, or is barely an upgrade, you've saved yourself that full retail moolah.
