    I'm still undecided, I been using iOS 7 on my iPhone 5 since beta 1. Now on iOS 7 (GM) it feels fresh with the new paint but still feels limited. Still operates the same way has iOS 6 which is not a bad thing but a little boring. Feels even dated at times. iPhone 5S slightly enhance camera, finger print scanner, A-7 64bit. All great features but I just wanted one thing. An iPhone with a bigger screen. iPhone 5 still to small. Not excited about iPhone 5s at all.

    I'm still undecided at this point. I'm pretty sure that I'll be leaving Android again but I may pick up a 5c just because it's a little bit cheaper off-contract and will probably be less susceptible to damage. Knowing me though, I have to have the latest and greatest so I'll probably end up with the 5s.

    Both my wife and I will be buying the 5s. I will also be keeping my 4s (in a non-iOS 7 format) as a backup audio player in my car. I'm looking forward to the 5s, but not iOS 7. Too flowery and not Steve like in my opinion. The 4s is a one of a kind reminder of Steve and I just can't see myself getting rid of a classic.

    Yes, I always upgrade when the S comes out. Trying to figure out the best way to get Friday without waiting in line. I usually pre-order and get it in the mail the day it comes out, but that does not look like an option this time.

    I made a point of buying my sons last phone at retail so I can use his upgrade to get the 5S, then next year I'll be up for the next one. I have an addiction! WE all do on here!

    I don't normally do the S upgrade but this time I decided to go for it. Selling my 5 for a good price helped make that decision.

    From the 4 to 4S i never saw the need to upgrade and that made the 5 that much better when I got it. With this in mind I am completely planning on getting the 5S. My only dilemma is in how I'm getting it. Normally I sign the two year contract and wait until the next full upgrade, this year Verizon introduced the Edge program. If I can get the phone using Edge I'll do that and sell my 5, using the money for something else (bills namely). If I can't use Edge I'll exchange my 5 and use that towards the upgrade. I don't really want to sign the 2 year contract but I'm still unsure on the Edge thing. It would allow me to upgrade every year like I really want to do. Life's dilemmas. Also, I won't be getting it launch day. There isn't any rush and I got the 5 the week after it came out. Made a few calls, no lines, no wait, walked out of RadioShack with the 5.

    No 5s for me. I was planning on staying with my 4s and various other os phones but yesterday I went from 4s to 5 because someone scrambling to get rid of their 5 had it at a crazy low price but I don't see anything in the 5s that attracts me. The features and "upgrades" feel gimmicky and I'd probably not use most of them. The larger screen coming from the 4s is enough to keep me happy for a while. I don't need fingerprint scanning or a faster processor or a camera any better than the 5 has. If future iPhones have something I desire or need, I'll upgrade but I don't need or desire anything larger than the 5's size so if iPhone gets bigger than it currently is, I am definitely not upgrading.

    My contract still has a year on it. I'll be happy to wait for the iPhone 6. This year, I'm buying a Mac.

    I'm getting the 5S. I plan on ordering from the moment they become available and I'll just wait for the delivery man a few days after.

    Yes, I'm buying a 5s!

    Question for all the Apple peeps in here. I've never experienced trying to go into an Apple store on launch for a phone. I'm sure the stock at Apple stores on launch day grows each year, but do they sell out fairly quickly still? Or is it possible for someone to be able to buy 1 later in the afternoon on launch day? I have to work until 3 and then have an hour drive to the closest Apple store, just curious if it would be a waste of time. I really wish they had 5s for pre-order through Apple online like they did for the 5.

    Luckily yes I am! The stars aligned for me on this one. Even though I bought an iPhone 5 last year I'm not on contract. I have been with the same carrier for the past 15 years but the last 10 I have always bought my phones full price. My wife still has an iPhone 4 so I was able to say I'll go on contract get the 5s subsidized and you will get my iPhone 5. Plus the carrier I'm on, Fido, here in Canada has what they call Fido dollars. It's a percentage of every bill and it can be applied to the cost of the phone. I have $150 which knocks off half the price Wohoo.

    I'm currently toting a 5 and VERY VERY tempted to get the 5s. I'm waiting for reviews of it compared to the 5 before i take the plunge (which is around 85%). 64bit and better gaming and apps is what is dragging me in, but my upgrade is still not up until next year. Although if i would get a new one next year, if the 6 will have a bigger a la-android/samsung/htc like screen, i'd still get the 5S even if the 6 was out

    I was able to sell mine for 450 nobody wanted to pay more. this is in phoenix, so it may depends in your city. i had to pay 220 to cancel one of my many lines so my brother is without a phone right now :P until i use that line to get my iphone 5s then he can get his line back lol
    Oh dang LOL. I had someone ask me on my eBay listing if I was willing to take $250 for my 32GB, couldn't believe that crap!

    I want to wait in line but kind of don't want to cause staying up all night, ugh. I want to be able to play with my phone after I get not fall asleep. Question is will T-Mobile be selling unlocked versions? What I'm thinking is hitting up a T-Mobile to buy a phone but I'm not going to get service with them, obviously I will be paying full retail do you think they would sell it to me without getting service with them?

    At first I wasn't going to. But apple yet again convinced me. Yesterday I sold my 16gb white iPhone 5 mint conditions. I have to ship it tomorrow to the buyer in NJ. I will be using a blackberry for a couple of days ewwwwww! What made this happen was the fact that sprint gave me a courtesy early upgrade
