    Ok so i am on sprint, and thinking about jumping to verizon for the iphone 4, was thinking bout waiting for the iphone 5, but by the time this happens im pretty sure verizon will not have unlimited data available..

    I wonder if i get the iphone 4 now, will be able ot upgrade to the iphone 5 when it comes out in june? Or at least next year.. Or will i be stuck with the iphone 4 for 24months!! Who has some answers for me????

    Doesnt att users get to upgrade every time a new iphone comes out even tho they are under contract?

    If you pay full retail you can upgrade anytime. As for a discount, probably not.

    you will be stuck with the contract you sign. verizon isnt going to let everyone upgrade if they have the iphone 5 in the summer which right now is all speculation. I personally think they will wait to release their next iphone as an LTE phone which most likely wont be until a year or so.

    I think if one company gets it, they both will. AT&T has no more exclusivity deal with Apple. I just don't think we will see a new iPhone that soon.

    It has nothing to do with exclusivity its the fact that the iphone just came out in february why release another 6 months later? thats not how apple is

    Here is something I keep finding odd though.... Every time Verizon or Apple has been asked this question, all they will say is that they won't let their loyal customers be unhappy. Now what does that mean?

    ...the iPhone 4 came out in June of 2010. It got a new carrier in 2011, but it will be 1 year old this June.

    Yes for at&t. Apple had to change alot from the antenna to the chip for the iphone 4. I could see for now at&t getting the iphone 5 this summer and verizon getting the iphone 6 which will probably be an LTE iphone next february.

    They changed next to nothing for the ViP4. An antenna redisign is nothing and the only "chip changes" that happened was removing the SIM card slots and adding a CDMA chip. It is still 100% an iPhone 4.

    Differenet chipset for the radios capable of dual cdma/gsm. GSM in it is just crippled. Then I also saw something about it have a dedicated gps chip as well or something like that

    The phones are not CDMA and GSM enabled. They are one or the other. Either way, if I went out and bought a BMW '10 model from my local dealer and next year another dealer released the same '10 model but switched the blue and white colors on the hood ornament, THEY ARE STILL THE SAME.

    Maybe you should do some research then. They can have both gsm and cdma chips just like verizons world phones. Go check that out and then say they are still the same. smh

    Here are my thoughts.

    *Verizon got the iPhone in February of 2011.
    *White iPhone rumored to be "spring" 2011

    IF the iPhone 5 comes out this summer, I think it may be AT&T only, followed by Verizon in Jan/Feb.

    While we won't know for sure until it happens, we have heard NOTHING on the next iPhone as far as leaks. We knew EVERYTHING about the iPhone 4 by this time last year. This leads me to believe the next iPhone will be released on both carriers at the same time, either layer this year (pre Christmas) or just after the first of the year. I don't even think if it does come out next January it will be LTE. I don't think the networks will be ready yet and the advancements in the chips to avoid "compromises" Apple doesn't want to to make.

    Yes but the at&t version doesnt have the dual chip that allows for cdma and gsm so that alone is a big change maybe not to you since they are the same exact phone as you said.

    You understand that switching to that new antenna chip is a tiny change right? That's like having a $2000 gaming pc, switching out the Ethernet card and saying "Complete Overhaul!"

    Also, did I ever say it was the exact same phone, or did I say:

    What!? I don't even think that an iPhone 5 will be out this summer. My whole point was that you said the iPhone 4 came out in Feb. It did not. Either way, I don't think we will see an iPhone 5 this year.

    Are you joking? I can't tell. You know this this is the Verizion IPHONE 4 we are using right? The iPhone 4 came out in 2010. Period. Yeah, it has a new US carrier now, i.e. Verizon, but that has nothing to do wit the fact it is the iPhone 4 that was released in June 2010.

    ok it may not be adding much...but this is some funny sh*t right here.

    Dude, the Iphone 4 was released last July. It was released on AT&T. Then in Febuary, Apple developed an Iphone with a CDMA service chip in the phone to work on the Verizon network, and there is still a seperate GSM compatible Iphone.

    Seriously....

    Exactly! Someone that gets it!

    It is still the iPhone 4, regardless of the carrier. The UK has had non-AT&T iPhones for a while now...
