I bought the 3G. Ever since I've always been on time to get the iPhone 4, now iPhone 5 for only $200. While the 4 S was nice and I'm sure the 5 S will be nice too... The 4 didn't look out dated when the 4 S came out and if the 5 S looks like the 5 them the 5 won't look out dated either. Right now I'd hate to be under contract with a 4 S.
