    How is everyone getting the iPhone 5?

    I have AT&T and purchased the 4S on launch day. I'm eligible for an early upgrade for $250 plus the upgrade fee. I can do this, add a line, or just pay the full price. What do you guys plan on doing?

    Full upgrade, or possibly paying full price. Haven't decided yet.

    Edit: I have AT&T launch day 4S, but I have a family plan and also have an off contract 4.

    Is this the standard ETF or does it depend on how far you are into your contract?

    For the first time ever, I'm not.

    My iPhone 4S is great, looks just like the new one does from five feet away, there's no reason to waste the money.

    What a big win for us :)

    I've never had any problems with AT&T. Word around town is that Verizon is upgrading some towers to LTE this week (I've seen the trucks working on the towers), so that's one reason I'd like to switch. Also, AT&T doesn't let you use your iPad as a Personal Hotspot.

    Is anyone thinking about adding a line to their single line now? Do we lose our grandfathered unlimited data plan if we do this?

    I'm waiting until December when one of my lines is eligible for an upgrade. I just upgraded to the 4s and am happy with it. So I may not upgrade at all in December if the next iPhone 1. Even exists 2. Offers something I can't live without which so far, none of the rumors provide

    Using my upgrade. 32GB iPhone white, plus AppleCare, should cost about $398. Will be using my hard earned money.

    Might, pay outright for the phone. Haven't really decided yet. But then again, I rather pay only half and then go shopping. :D

    You know you'll be wanting the 5 once it's announced. There's going to be some nice additions and it's going to be another world class phone. I have a mint 32g 4S and I don't feel getting the 5 is a waste at all. Actually, I can't wait.

    Its still up in the air. It was going to be early upgrade or full price but now im thinking about adding a line because I like the idea of having an upgrade every year between the 2 lines and that alone is worth the $10 extra a month.

    After spending a weekend up in Maine I grew tired of 1 bar while wife with verizon had decent coverage.

    I have been throttled twice. No thank you AT&T, I will pay the eft of about $200 and make the move.
