I didn't get the iPhone5. I am still going through iPhone4S's like crazy with whatever is going on so til that's 100% figured out, Im not getting any new anythings. I am right at the point now where all hell should start breaking loose, plus I am about to go out of town so I expect craziness this week with this one.

I was actually going to sit the iP5 out & hang onto my perfectly fine 4s since I'm not eligible for a real-deal upgrade until after January...but AT&T's horrible data network in my area for the last year or so has gotten me so pissed off that I may be jumping ship to Verizon tomorrow!

If that happens..."hello" iP5! :)

You wouldn't care about losing your unlimited data?

I upgraded to the 4S about a month before the announcement of iPhone 5 and I'm completely happy. I've seen a couple of 5's in the wild and handled them, but the bottom line for me is that the 5 didn't present a compelling enough case to get me excited about it.

I'm going to skip the iPhone 5. I'm not due for an upgrade until May 2013, and I will hold that upgrade for the 5S (or whatever the next generation will be).

I didn't necessarily skip the 5 I was a bb user and couldn't take waiting for the 5 to become available so I bought a 4s a few days before the 5 was available to me. Just added a line to my account for the 5 now I have the best of both worlds carrying the 4s and 5. They work together nice. I've found that the 4s is my work horse and the 5 gets to take it easy.

I've played with the iPhone 5 a few times now in the AT&T shop, Best Buy and even my friend has one. I'm yet to be convinced to upgrade\switch from my iPhone 4s to an iPhone 5.

I have iOS 6 on my iPhone 4s now, so maybe the 'little' things there are keeping me rooted to it. Maybe, just maybe if panorama was NOT an option on the iPhone 4s\iOS6 I might have switched ;)

Same feelings.

I am happy with the 4S. IMO the OS is the core relationship with the end user. As long as the OS didn;t change from one model to another, give or take a few features that I am not worried about, then I am staying with the 4S. I have supported a few iPhone 5 in the past week at work. and though it's great. I have no need to switch..

I won't ever use an upgrade ever again since I want to keep my unlimited data. I will more than likely get a used 5 when the prices come down. My 4S is doing well in the mean time.

Confused. Are you saying if you upgrade you MUST change your data plan, too? I was under the impression that wasn't true. I switch between my iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S3, and have yet to 'lose' my unlimited data plan...

If you buy a phone at a subsidized price from verizon you will loose your unlimited data. It's better to buy the phone at full price or bring your own phone.

I got my 4S just as my friend got his 5, I must admit I don't really like the new shape ( this was similar with the Bold 9000 and the 9700 ) He sent it back and now has a 4S.

The iphone 4S has in my opinion grown to be the iconic shape, just as the 3g/gs was.

maybe given time and future devices I will grow to like it, but at this time the iphone 4/4S is distinctly Apple.

I have been on the every other iPhone cycle since I got my 3gs, skipped the 4 and got the 4S, skipped the 5 and going to get the next one

Any rumors on what we could expect? The rumors about the 5 were pretty dead on.

Nothing in particular as far as specs, body build etc. have been mentioned. Only that the 5S is rumored to be the next iPhone.

We all know that you have to take these rumors with a grain of salt, because things can always change :) yes the rumors for the 5 were pretty much spot on, but you never know...Apple may do a better job of zipping up the rumor leaks this time around.

I skipped it because I just got my 4s in April lol. But the iPhone 5 looks nice though. But I will get the next one when my contract is up. Love my 4s.

Same here. I feel like I JUST got the 4s, so I skipped the 5. It won't be perfected until the 5s anyway.
