    Hello, I'm still an iPhone EDGE user... the phone is still working but all the buttons, except the home, are dead. So I'm planning to buy an iPhone 4, when the iPhone 5 is launched, so I can grab one for USD$375 (unlocked) from the apple store.

    I wanted to ask if the antenna issue is that horrible? I'm planning in buying a bumper with the iPhone 4. Or should I wait one more year to buy the iPhone 4S for the same price?

    It's not horrible. If you have a case on it you will not notice it one bit. Even without, unless you hold your phone like king kong might, you will likely not notice a thing.

    iPhone 4

    If you are financially able, i would pick up an iPhone 4S rather than an iPhone 4, when the new iPhone comes out, if you really want it, you can easily sell your iPhone 4 or 4S for a good amount of money. As for the antenna issue, i agree with lordofthereef, i have used my iPhone for a while and have not had any issues with signal.

    Thanks. But my problem is the money, 375 is a lot for me right now but I think is worth it because after having an iPhone it would be very hard to move backwards to another phone.

    I can't buy the iPhone 4S this year, because it would cost around 550$USD. If I want to go for an iPhone 4S I would have to wait for late 2013. iPhone 4 is the only option I got for this year. :(

    Apple sell the iPhone 4 unlocked for $550

    For $375, you get a unlocked iPhone 3GS

    I have not idea where he was getting his prices either.
    A factory unlocked 8GB iphone 4 is $549 +tax.
    The 8GB 3GS unlocked is $375 + tax.
    The iphone 4S 16GB unlocked is $649 + tax.

    Based on is post it seems he is assuming that after the next iPhone comes out, everything will shift down and the 4 will be $375.

    I don't even see the ability to buy a refurb 4 online... Are these going to appear once the 5 comes out...
