    I heard the date of releasing the new iPhone 5 is in Oct. Please be patient to wait.
    I think the fact that that the new iPhone didn't come out around the time that it had in the past and that there still hasn't been any word yet from Apple is what has a lot of people so anxious right now. I'm fine with the wait as my iPhone 4 still looks and performs like it did 14 months ago when I got it.

    Same... I'm on my 3rd refurb but I kept the original plastic on this one so the back didn't get scratched (the back glass is less scratch-resistant than the front glass for sure!!!). I tend not to use a case but it's still pretty perfect

    It's funny cause a lot of people complain that it's fragile because of the glass but I drop it all the time and I have no scratches, plus with the older plastic phones it was impossible not to scratch them.

    I have kept mine in a Speck case from day one with a screen protector on the front as well as a protector on the back glass (over kill, I know, lol). I know what you're saying about the glass. I have dropped mine 3 times and no screen break or scratches occurred. I do think that the glass is fragile to a certain extent, however, I also believe it depends on how it lands and how far of a drop it was as to whether or not it will crack on impact.

    Yeah, I think somehow the latest batches have had strengthened glass. Because when I first got my iPhone 4 I dropped it once and the screen got a long hairline crack. With this latest one just yesterday it smacked on the floor pretty damn hard twice and no damage what so ever.

    Has Apple even mentioned they were releasing a new iPhone this year? Ppl, Apple never said they were actually releasing one. We are just assuming because it's time. It would be so funny if Apple finally came out and said that a new phone will come out 2012. Why does Apple keep this so secretive? It's a dang cell phone for Christ sake. You would swear they were holding the nuclear codes. They could atleast tell us if they are or not and what devices without showing their competitors. Apple is probably in Cal laughing at us.

    It's very unlikely Apple would wait until 2012 to release the 5th gen. iPhone. Why so secretive? Because they want people to keep buying the iPhone 4 & 3GS. Simple.

    Besides, would you rather they follow Samsung's example? They announced the Galaxy S2 phone in Feb. and released it in S. Korea & UK in May. It finally got to the U.S. this month (Sprint only as of today), a full SEVEN months after people first got a look at it. Notice any lines for the S2?

    How many Android fans are now holding out for Nexus Prime with ICS? That's also a Samsung product, but it's basically dampening S2 sales and they'll have to drop prices pretty soon in order to clear inventory.

    The reality is that most people get a new phone when they need it or when their contract is up. The tech punditry make their living revving up technophiles to buy the latest & greatest device, but we're talking about a relatively small minority of the consuming public.
