    Photo or it didn't happen.

    I'd be shocked - more shocked than I am right now.

    I'm just not too impressed to upgrade early for a better camera. I'll save my money for the next generation, which will probably be in the next 6 months anyway.

    I said no... for now. But I'm sure somebody in my family will pick one up.

    I got the iPhone 4 when the white one was released. And I'm thrilled with the phone. It's still a looker and still works. As long as iOS5 is not s... s... slow then I'm cool. I think if iOS5 works fine on my iPhone 4, I'd be happy for another year.

    Besides, who knows when the iPhone 5 will come out? There is a case to be made for it to be released in summer- the iPhone 4S is a mild refresh. I'm gonna try my hardest not to succumb to new gadget fever and stick to my plan of upgrading to a LTE iPhone.

    I tried the voice control on my iPhone 4 and said "check weather". It then proceeded to start a facetime call with somebody who I hadn't talked in years...

    That and the screen size? I realize it's a personal preference but I don't want a Droid x that lasts 4 hours, never did have a hankerin for android. For me the iPhone just works, I still love it so!

    You probably never owned a droid x because it lasts just as long as the iphone and has a much larger screen.

    Yep. On Sprint with a Palm Pre. Not impressed with Android and with HP giving us the shaft the move to iPhone 4s is a no brainer.

    I just realized the much anticipated and needed maps update was missing as well.

    Just what on Earth has Apple been doing the past 16 months??? If it took them 16 months for this, and they couldn't even update the maps app, or change the design so people can tell it's the new one, that is shockingly pathetic.

    Nope. Locked in contract for two years. Plus not enough for upgrade in my eyes. iOS 5 & JB.

    My wife will be upgrading her 3GS to the 4S, I think I'll still with my 4 (non-S) for awhile, possible till the 6th Gen iPhone is released. It's not that the iPhone 4S is 'bad', just I had hopes of a screen size increase, a thinner iPhone 4S (5), NFC, better audio and since it was delayed so long, was hoping for LTE. Guess I was hoping for too much . I'm looking forward to iOS5, and iCloud and think my current iPhone 4 should carry me over till next summer/early fall.

    I will be getting a 3rd line and getting an Android phone, hoping for a Nexus Prime (or whatever they call it) but it wouldn't be my main phone and would be mostly for development. Plus i just want a different toy and have no need for a iPad. The next Nexus phone should be fun to play with, and I want to check out ICS.

    I wouldn't switch to WP7, even with Mango, I have a Samsung Focus with Mango and while it's much improved, it's more like a smartphone with training wheels. The twitter and FB integration are rather useless as I end up having to go back to the separate apps for those two services anyway. The Live Tiles are slow to update, even on Mango, and the new notifications are kinda fugly. I do like IE9 and how you can make groups, but don't care for the switching Live Tiles for the People Hub or Group Hub. However if I was a new smartphone user I would definitely get it. Also I have a lot invested in Apple's ecosystem.

    I did own the Droid X and the battery life was horrible even with the expensive extended battery. iPhone blows it away by hours. And the Droid os is horrible compared to iPhone. Not upgrading yet. Got the 4 in march. Wanna see how iOS 5 runs on this before I decide.

    Undecided.

    Wanted it to have a bigger screen, a little design change, and (never counted on this) more of a move away from itunes.
    We shall see, we are due in 2 months, so we will in addition to the 4s consider other phones.

    The verizon versions seem to have a lower resale value than the gsm counterparts so most likely you won't get that much unless you only keep it for a few days and then sell it.

    I'll be waiting until after the 11th before I make my decision. While I do like Windows Phone 7 on my Trophy, I'm seriously missing an app that I use for my work schedule that is only available on Android, iOS, and BlackBerry. Personally, I would have much preferred the 4S to have a slightly larger screen, notification LED, aluminum backing, and capacitive home button. I have a funny feeling that this might not sell out so I may check it out in person before I decide whether or not to get it.

    Oh and for the crybabies yapping about why no LTE on the 4S.....READ BELOW:

    AnandTech - Why No LTE iPhone 5 in 2011? Blame 28nm Maturity, Check Back In Q2/Q3 2012

    Apple won't use LTE until it's in more markets, smaller chips, less power hungry and more mature manufacturing process.

    Why is everyone obsessed with LTE? Is that like 4G? And if so, won't that run down the battery?

    Honest questions! Not being sarcastic.
    Well, LTE is by far, the fastest of the current "4G" networks. I have 2 LTE phones from Verizon, and I average 24mbps on the downlink....faster than my Comcast Internet. The Iphone 4S's HSDPA+ theoretical speed in the USA is not even that fast, at 14.4. Yeah, LTE is pretty amazing.

    Yeah, I thought I read some where that there would be a map update.

    If the Nexus Prime is not a world phone, doesn't come to Sprint, and if ICS is nothing more than interface tweaks, then yes, I'll gladly pony up for an iPhone 4S on December 1st.

    That is, unless it doesn't support all of my Google Services :

    Google Talk
    Google Voice
    Gmail
    Google +

    I'm not currently an iPhone user, but am certainly likely to become one given that I'm a musician and certain apps that suck on Android or are only available for the iPhone, are pushing me toward that pitcher of Koolaid. So if anyone knows for a fact that the above Google services do work on the iPhone 4 (which means they are likely to work on the iPhone 4S), pour me some grape Koolaid. I've heard all the BS about the great hardware the Android vendors make but the Android OS enrages me to the point of needing anger management. I had a chance to play with an iPhone 4 at a Verizon store recently and it took everything in me to not cancel Sprint and bounce then, just to get one, so even though it's not an iPhone 5 and doesn't have 4G at all, I'd get it. Google has one last chance next week to keep me interested, but to be honest, I'm ready to bail.

    I dunno about Google+ but I know on the others it does.

    Well, I can always use the web browser to access Google Plus if there is no app for it in the App store. Thank you. That makes my decision easier. It's up to Google not to give me good reasons to stick with their platform and that's going to be a tough sell, because I've got one foot out the door and Siri is calling my name... :-)

    I know that many of you are disappointed that there was no iPhone 5. The Android fan boys will use this as an opportunity to kick dirt all over Apple. I however think that Apple will still sell millions of them because some of us who bought into all the Android hype are sick to death of memory leaks, soft reboots, and apps that suck. Seriously. APPS THAT SUCK. APPS THAT CRASH. And the Android Market being hit with Malware because there is no certification process for apps. Yea. Open platform. Big deal. FRAGMENTATION, as EVERYONE overlays a USELESS, MEMORY HOGGING UI on top of an Android OS that is supposedly OPEN but those UI overlays are FORCED on the users, with no way to remove them. YES, you can use some other launcher, and tinker with the phone, and root it, and install other ROMS, and blah blah blah. I'm a busy musician. I don't have time to Jack around with a damn phone. I need the phone to just work and that just isn't happening with Android. NOT unless ICS is better than this Gingerbread POS.

    So really, anyone who doesn't want this iPhone, that's cool. I should have no problem picking one up on December 1st then and having an ALL DAY iPHONE PARTY with a phone that just fricken WORKS.
