    Your not gonna hear me try and talk you off the Ledge. I made the leap and it was worth it. Droid 2 was nice but it is was better to rock the 4s and with high resale prices if you want to make a switch you can throw it on ebay and sell it and upgrade. Go for it!

    Can I be the one that says, yes they do have high resale value, IF you find the right person to sell it to. My local Craigslist is flooded with iPhones and when I had a 32GB 4S for sale, people wanted it for less than $400. When the 5 comes out, people will want the 4S for even less.

    Yes, that's with everything. Gotta find the right buyer and the right situation. But there is still a very good chance that it will get you a GOOD chunk of what you would pay for the 5 off contract (assuming you've taken care of the 4S and it's still basically mint). Will it make the 5 free for you? No. But if someone wants to use their upgrade because they really want an iPhone now, it isn't a waste because these things do maintain such a good resale value. MUCH MUCH better than any other cell phone on the market.

    Like I said above, iPhone 4 16gb is still getting upwards of $300 on eBay. That phone is 20 months old. There isn't any cell phone out there that gets that much nearly two years from release. Are you trying to tell me that a year from the release of the 4S it will get less than $300? Not a chance. It will still be in demand and it will still be very sellable. Hell, the 3GS is still selling at a pretty decent tick.

    Go for it! Why should you wait for something if you can have it now?

    Even if the 5 is announced, it would still be some time before you could actually get your hands on one. I had to wait 4 months from the date the 4s was released before I could actually walk into a store and pick one up. Go for it!

    I just sold a i4 on craigslist for 300. U bet the 4s would go for 300-350 easily when the i5 is out.
