    I might get a new job which means that I will loose my iphone4 because it's at the job.

    So for me personally should I get a 4 or wait till upgrade. in August to December

    I agree, it's only another month or two...wait for it! I'm holding out, too...it's been hard not to give in! But oh, so worth it when the iP5 is here. XD

    I say wait regardless of whether it's a big upgrade or not. I'm assuming the iPhone 5 will be priced as the 4 is now so just wait 2 more months and get a newer better phone for the same price

    I would wait, it would be worth it even if the upgrade isn't overly substantial. Unless of course you really need a new iPhone now.

    To the OP, definitely wait for the iPhone 5. Buying a 4 now would be suicide.

    You've kinda got to be crazy to think it's not gonna be a complete redesing IN THE LEAST at the moment.

    Anything could happen, but if you follow the case designers, the iPhone will come. History has almost always repeated itself with Apple.

    Definitely wait. Even if it's not a HUGE update, which im hoping it will be, it's still worth waitin the extra month or so. You'll regret it when you see the new one if you don't.

    Yes, the inconsistent rumors do point to Big Upgrade this Fall.

    If you want to be smart about it, then i suggest you wait it out. Only a month left anyway.

    If you like the 4 get the 4. No one has any idea what the new one will look like or even have in it. My BB is about to crap out and I'm going to by the iPhone 4 in the next week or so.

    Wait about six weeks and get the iPhone 5. It'll save you a headache.

    It's a tough call since there's already so much talk about the A6 processor. The A5 in the iPhone 5 will be short lived and not worth much once the A6 is released running the new combined OS. Consisting of the convergence of iOS & OS X.
