I have a HTC Wildfire a3335 running Android, but yesterday it had an unfortunate bathing accident with some honey liquor... so it's in the repair shop getting cleaned. And likely to not come out alive... But rather than cry over spilt bourbon , I am in fact partly relieved because I've become rather dissatisfied with Android over the last few months for a few reasons. I've also become keen on Apple products since getting a Mac Mini and iPad a couple of years ago, and recently a new MacBook Pro which I am very happy with. I admit I boycotted the iPhones for years due to their "common trendy fanboyism". But also recently my attitude has warmed towards them. Anyway enough of the ramble....I am wondering whether to get a new iPhone 4S and just put in my current sim card (Telstra 3G on a monthly mobile phone plan), or wait until the iPhone 5 is released? I've read on these forums that iO6 was not really good? Is it correct that the iPhone 5 won't be released until September/October? As a temporary solution I am using the company mobile phone (just to receive calls), which apparently is an iPhone 4S. Personally I think it works quite well, it's good quality and has the features I want (I'm not that fussy, as long as it works properly and doesn't crash a lot). Also I hope it's not as "stalker-ish" as Google Android, so far I don't think it is(?). But I only have access to the company phone for a fortnight, so will need to get a new phone quite soon. I could get a $50 normal cheapy from the post office while waiting for the iPhone 5, but honestly I don't think I could downgrade from using a smartphone. But I am interested if its new features are worth waiting for. Is the 4S available in one format, or other formats with less/more storage space? Is it expensive to purchase outright? Thanks for your feedback, larryloo.
