    It's easy to say that now, since the iPhone 5 hasn't been announced yet.

    It's also easy to say that people will be begging for the iPhone 5 once it is announced due to the hardware upgrades ;)

    I'm hoping the iPhone 5 has a curved back or is tapered like some of the predictions, that way I will have no desire to switch :) I love my squared out iPhone 4 so much it's gonna take a lot for me to want to switch. Fortunately we have 3 lines so on average 2x a year we have an upgrade available lol. Next one isn't until next may though...

    How about, forget your opinion? I'm going to be getting the iPhone 5, which iOS 5 will be optimized for.

    I had a play with my friends iphone 4 with the ios5 beta loaded onto it.

    Im looking forward to the finished version being released.

    As for the iphone 5, if it brings things to the table that Im interested in then i'll just buy it outright.

    Waiting for iOS5 here too!

    No plans to upgrade the phone until the 6 comes out. If the 5 is really awesome then I will just save up and buy out of pocket.... But for what I do on the phone, it is working great.

    Oh and I bought it in July knowing the 5 was "close" - but i needed a new phone.

    However, I could be tempted to upgrade a Touch if that is exciting.

    Forget my opinion? That makes zero sense. Why you mad?

    iOS 5 will be just as good on the 4 as it will on the 5

    You are acting like I'm saying don't get the 5. This topic is about getting excited for iOS 5

    Yeah, now he'll take your opinion more seriously for sure.


    I also agree with the forum topic, but I think it needs a name change.

    lol, i'm not mad, just pointing out what you're sounding like. Maybe the all the -1's you're receiving will make sense now. You're saying that the iPhone 5 is useless and iOS 5 is most important, it sounds like you're saying "forget about your opinion". Now, it might not be what you meant to say, but it's just what you're coming off as.

    iOS 5 will be just as good on the 4 as it will on the 5? We'll just see if it completely stands true.

    Samsung and the carriers are pissing me off to no end by taking their sweet time bringing the Galaxy S2 to the U.S.

    6 ****ing months it's been out already?! Are you kidding me? By the time you get the galaxy sII in the U.S. its already outdated.

    At least with the iPhone you have it released in the U.S. at the right time and are guaranteed for it to be the top dog for at least a year (if not longer)

    Considering we know absolutely nothing about the 'iPhone 5', it's impossible to make that claim.

    Well if the iPhone 5 goes back to a curved back, Apple will be admitting the squared off iPhone 4 was a mistake. It will either make the iPhone 4s collectibles or embarrassments.

    I am looking forward if Apple decides to release a lower budget iPhone and if it is a true "global" phone. I think if they decide to cater to the lower end market, it forces their competitors to lower the prices just the same. I dream to have a smartphone for under $200 contract-free. A decent one and not one from Huawei. Paying unsubsidized prices of $400-$500+ for unlocked phones is just too much.

    I am looking forward more to Ice Cream Sandwich than iOS5. Apple only has to worry about one phone per year. Google has a greater challenge trying to cater to several phones. Will ICS help less the fragmentation? What we see in the Android's latest software will probably be featured in iOS6 by next year. Android users are guinea pigs / test dummies of the industry. I don't mean it in a bad way. They just get the earlier stuff first even with all the faults. Samsung already has a phone with a projector inside it. That will someday be common in phones. A 720p (1280x720) resolution display will be common by 2012 once the HTC Vigor gets released.

    The next gen OSes is going to have even better app switching, live icons/widgets, and might follow the "hubs' idea from WP7. Eliminate the constant opening and closing of an app. Eliminate the constant presses of the home button. I want to view things at a glance. Right now, our battery technology hasn't caught up for all this to happen right now. Overheating is already a prob with dual core chips. We probably have phones with amazing OSes like this right now and have the technology to do it. But these manufacturers can't bring down the price to a consumer level. More like Secret Service/CIA type technology found in James Bond movies.

    It's sad that it takes so long for technology to become available to the public at a good price.

    I got my iPhone 4 back in November and am planning on waiting until the iPhone 6 to upgrade.

    I am, however, looking forward to the new iOS 5. :)

    My contract ends next month and I've been wanting an iPhone for a while. So this lines up perfectly for me. I intend to get an iPhone 5 and by extension, IOS 5 with it.

    the IP4 works great but I'm not under contract. I don't know about the IP5 because I do want a LTE phone, especially if I have to sign a 2 year contract. iOS 5 might be the one to make me stop jailbreaking though.
