    I plan on keeping my iPhone 5 for AS LONG as it lasts.. I was 100% ready to go and spend the money on the iPhone 6 as soon as I could but then I started thinking to myself..WHY!? I LOVE technology and LOVE the latest and greatest smartphones, but how much do I really need it.. To check Facebook, to read the news?? I am not really sure anymore if I would die not having one.. But the main reason is.. I bought my iPhone 5 in November 2012, Applecare sent a NEW replacement phone January 2013, and this month I paid the $79 and had a new battery put in.. I also have hundred of dollars worth of phone cases, The phone is really nice and fast, it is going to get IOS 8, so no compatibility issues, and I am not having any problems with it. Keeping the iPhone 5 also means that I get to hold on to Verizons Unlimited Data (granted I never use a lot, but it is nice to not have to check or "watch" my data)! I really would like a larger screen, but really I can just use my tablet or notebook if I am doing something that requires/needs a bigger screen. So for me I thought I could have the latest and the greatest phone with a larger screen, but have to start watching my data, or KEEP my iPhone 5 which works GREAT, and I never have to worry how much data I am using or how much is left.

    It is going to HURT on Sept.9 watching everyone ordering the new iPhone 6, but I think for what I use my phone for, I will have no problem just holding on to my iPhone 5, One thing I have found for the most part, unless you are really into technology, no one really cares at all what phone you are using or if you have the "newest" iPhone..

    Your remarks make good sense. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I'm in a very similar circumstance and your remarks were reassurance about the value of keeping a good working phone. It's not about getting what you want, but wanting what you've got. Thanks!

    I have iphone 5 for 2 months now. Battery life is the issue now. I'm thinking to upgrade to iphone 5s sooner. Then my major update will be iphone 6s

    +1. Additionally, size of 6 is bigger than I prefer.

    I've decided to wait for the 6s Plus in September. I may need a new battery for my 5 before then. We'll see.

    I got an iPhone 6 plus. Used it for two months and just couldn't get used to the size. Gave it to my husband and went back to my iPhone 5. I missed being able to put my phone in my pockets or using it one handed. So I'm hoping to stay with this size phone for as long as I can. Big is not the new small for me.

    Why not go for a i6? The 4.7 is a great size with it being so thin.

    I just left android and came back to an i5. Fits my needs just fine. I have it wrapped up in a atlas case. The 6 is a beautiful phone but no need for such an upgrade
