    Since I wasn't eligble for full upgrade pricing, I'll see you guys in 2013 (I just can't bring myself to pay $449+). :(At least I'll have iOS 6, and since there aren't any exclusive features, no harm no foul.:cool:

    Hopefully I can sell my iPhone 4S next year for a decent amount to have the iPhone 5s. The economics of this game I've been playing for 5 years certainly has changed. :eek:

    Perhaps this will give me a chance to switch to Verizon for their superior LTE network.

    The S version will be superior to the 5. We all know that.

    I'm tired of being on the S cycle so I ordered the 5 on the "discounted iPhone upgrade" price. Got $300 for my 16 gb 4S and paying the extra 150 and tax out of pocket.

    For s-version purchasers, I would hope so. But how soon would you think the 5s would be available? Not soon enough, IMO. But then, I may buy it anyway.....

    I am also stuck on the "S" cycle, although the 4S was my first phone and I still love it. Money is a bit tight for me right now so I can't really justify buying the 5. It's nice but LTE is spotty at best in my area so even if I did buy the 5 I really couldn't take advantage of the LTE.

    I hope those who do purchase the 5 enjoy it. I'll be purchasing the 5S ;)

    I would have been on the "S" cycle too but i decided to just add another line for $10 more a month. Now once I get the new phone I'll get a nano sim for my existing line put the new line on a dumbphone and cancel the data. I think the $10 a month extra is worth it so be able to upgrade at full subsity every year. Especially when you consider the reasle value of the phones before I upgrade.

    Well I would hope so since it comes out in a year...I'm sure the 6 will be superior to the 5S too :eek:

    Bought a 4S for 199 last year and will be buying a 5 for 199 on friday

    Don't worry. The 5s will be "the best iphone ever."

    And the 6 will be superior to the 5S. Ad infinitum. By this logic, I'd never upgrade out of fear of obsolescence.

    I'm happy with the "S" cycle. They fix issues like antennas and the "S" cycle gets the biggest hardware bump.

    That spec bump seems to also hurt the battery. I have a 4S with pretty good battery life but its nothing like my 4 was. Wonder if that will happen again. I recall the same thing happening between the 3G and 3GS but not as severe.
