    I'm so torn.....I've had every generation of iPhone but not sure I'll be able to afford the next version right away. I also need a new protective case but don't want to waste the money on a good one if I do end up upgrading phones. Any advice? Anyone else in the same boat?

    Don't buy anything - enjoy what you have and don't drop your phone. Go out and play in the son. Love life. That's my advise. Good luck.

    The average decent "brand name" case is $35 retail. I really don't mean to be rude, but if you cannot afford that, my advice is don't buy anything; you are too strapped for cash and this shouldn't be a priority.

    Gee. New phone is coming out in a month. Either spend a few bucks or wait. This is not rocket science.

    You can find a nice one at any store. I've seen a lot of them on the sales rack. Five Below have them for $5. Marshalls Target Walmart Staples TJ Maxx etc have cases. Check there.

    Get a Speck, like $20. Then if you do upgrade add $10 to your selling price to offset the cost.

    So you're basically trying to decide whether to buy a case for your existing phone or wait and buy a new iPhone which you can't afford. Sheesh, seems like a no-brainer to me.
