    I was upgraded to the iP5 by default! My daughter ported her number to sprint and I got her iPhone (AT&T) since she couldn't use it. Since the phone is still attached to my third line I have my upgrade in waiting until dec., at least this phone will get ios7 to hold me over till then!

    Since you have until mid-August I would personally wait for the 5S. If you were looking now and needed a new phone, I would say to go ahead and do it.

    Whether you go with the iPhone 5 or 5S either one will suffice for the next two years. Heck people are still rocking iPhone 4's!

    True, my daughter is still using the iPhone 4 that I got on launch with no issues.

    I think I might take the plunge and purchase an iOS product with my upgrade in mid August. My question is, would it be worth my while to wait for the new one or would I be okay with the 5? I want a "future proof" phone, in that I mean I don't want to get a phone that will no longer receive updates while I wait 24 months until I upgrade again. I currently have the VZW GNEX and, as everyone knows, was EOL'd very early and treated like crap by Verizon. I don't want to find myself in a situation where I am waiting and waiting on updates. The way I understand it is Apple releases updates to the OS, not Verizon. Is that right?

    I want to make the correct decision on my new phone. I know I will probably not be happy with whatever I get because I am never satisfied. I just want to make sure I will have a phone that is fast, lag free and up to date for the entire length of my contract.
    You have many of the same concerns I had. I bought my iPhone 5 last week, and I am extremely pleased with it.

    The iPhone 5s will likely be released in September or October (if the rumors prove true). It may have more RAM, a faster processor, fingerprint scanner, and NFC. If any of those things are important to you, then you might as well wait. They are unimportant to me, so I decided to commit to the i5 for 2 years and then upgrade when the time comes.

    I'm like you - I'm fickle when it comes to technology. I am never satisfied for very long. But I've grown tired of hopping from device to device, and the iPhone seemed like the only phone that had the potential to keep me happy the longest. Time will tell if I made the right decision. Good luck!

    IMO go with the 5. Then sell later on and off set price of new 5S
    Agreed. I just bought yet again another iP5 (4th this year). Solid phone and we get all the great stuff with iOS 7. I will be sure to grab whatever is next but the iP5 is excellent!
