    Do some research before you start threads...

    No one knows because Apple hasn't released it yet. But based on the fact that they still sell the 3gs, they will probably sell the iPhone 4 or a slight modification of it for a year after the iPhone 5 comes out.

    Bottom line, we have no idea what is really going to happen this year.

    But, being that Tim Cook is master of inventory channels. If the 4 ends up being completely phased out it will not be around very long after the 5 is released. Apple will move all units and clear inventory ASAP to make way for the new.

    The 3GS has stayed relevant for 2 years after release...and the iPhone 4 is a much more capable handset. I'd say the iPhone 4 will not only stay relevant, but quite capable for at least as long as the 3GS did, probably longer.

    As far as the stores continuing to sell the older model iPhone 4, there's really no reason for them to do so if a new "cheaper" model is to come (which is still a rumor), if that model doesn't come to be, i would imagine the older iPhone 4 model will just follow suit and become the cheaper alternative like the 3GS did.
