    iPhone 5s is 3 months away. Definitely wait! It's what I'm doing with my 4S.

    Oh Yeah, I'm also hoping that iOS 7 will bring some exciting new changes. So, when I upgrade, it really will be worthwhile. Just thought about that. Thought I might add it to the Thread.
    Why not go to a store in your area (Carrier) that you are considering and play with the 4S and 5? You might go with all the recommendations you are getting here to go with the 5. I like 'D, he had a 4S and I still have a 4S and now as he indicated has a 5 and loves it. I only wish my upgrade was around the corner and I would get a 5 tomorrow but I have to wait until August. At that time if there is nothing else on the table I will go with the IP5 myself.

    Buy the latest and what works for you and you will be happy. Have a good one.

    Thanks for the response.
    I've only seen the 5 a couple of times in the presence of my friends.
    I think on the 12th I'm going to go to tmobile, and take a look at it.
    Thanks for the advice.
    Have a great evening!

    Same to you and when you come home with that new IP5 please come back and start a thread letting us know how you like it.

    IMO at this point wait for the 5s. And that's not to keep up with the latest I just think your closer to the release of the 5s at this point wait for it that way your done for at least 2 years. The camera upgrade alone will be worth it.

    If Apple releases the iOS7 beta in April than you should see the new 5s by end of summer.

    I would personally say upgrade. Looking at Apple's track record the 5s or 6 shouldn't outclass the 5 iteration to much. It will more then likely be the same exact design, and you will receive the upgrade over OTA. So yea I would say definitely upgrade.

    I would have waited for the 5S if it wasn't for the fact that my current phone was just barely usable. If this is your situation, then I would get the 5 now. Otherwise, I'd hold out for the 5S.

    If you can hold on a bit longer I would say do it. Ip5 is nice don't get me wrong, but for the sake of a few months putting up with a not-that-old 4s I think you'd be better off in the long run

    Since I'm on TMo I'm jumping to the 5 (even though I currently have a 4S) since it allows me access to Tmo's HSPA+ network as well any of Tmo's refarmed 3G networks.

    Hello all again,
    I decided to wait for the 5S, and get my current iPhone 4S activated on Tmobile.
    I have great reception and pretty decent speeds as well. Also, the personal hotspot works well too!
    Thanks for everybody's input and support!!!!

    Groundless assumption really...just as no one knows when the release date will be, there's even less info about what the phone will be.

    Just do like I did. Get the 5 on a new line. It's a simple switch

    I'm going to go against the curve If you are the type who keeps their phone for the full two year contract (honestly I am not sure how Tmobile works now so that may not apply), I would think waiting what might only be another 3 months might be worth it to do. Like others have said, the upgrade likely will not be a major upgrade. However, it is almost a given that the camera and processor will be improved. Perhaps battery life as well? Maybe more storage? Added security features or NFC? Truth is we won't know for sure until Apple takes the stage. But be sure to ask yourself, if you get the 5 in a few weeks, and the 5S is indeed released at the end of June with any of these additions, will you be kicking yourself for not having waited? If you do not think so, then get the 5. If you feel you might wish you had waited, then hold out a little longer since it sounds like your current device is capable, just not ideal.
    Also . . if you wait till the 5s (or whatever it is) comes out and you don't think its worthwhile, then the ip5 will likely move down to the $99 price point and you save yourself the worry and $100. jmo

    I'm sure you are aware that when ios7 comes it would also run on the ip5 hardware

    edit: sorry, I see you already made your decision . . enjoy
