    I'm up for a full upgrade on one of my lines and I'm thinking about getting the iPhone 5 16gb for AT&T for $98 at my local Walmart. I bought an iPhone 5 on launch day and sold it last week so I can get the 5s. Ive had the 3g, 3gs, 4, 4s, 5 and although the 5s does have some improvements, this is the first time im thinking about not upgrading yearly since the 5 is super fast and still a beast. The iPhone 5 for $98 sells fast in my area so I need to make a decision fast. Is it stupid getting a 5 on a 2 year contract for $98 or shall I pay the extra $100 and get the 5s. I'll be getting the 6 too. Thanks in advance for all the input.

    since you are going to be signing a two year contract, I would say get the 5S that way you will get two solid years out of the phone.

    Thanks for your opinion. You think it's worth it if I'll be getting the iPhone 6?!.

    I know att let's you upgrade iPhones every year for an upgrade fee of $250 plus the 2 year price. If you plan on getting the 6 I would just get the 5 since it's for a year.

    Yes. You can always sell the 5S next year in preparation for the upgrade to 6.
