    If tomorrow's announcements go well and for those who are going to get the new iPhone straight away, how old is your current (or primary) phone that you will be replacing?

    Stating which phone you currently have is optional.

    No if's and but's about what might happen tomorrow, there's plenty enough of those threads running already. :)

    Edit: As a starting point, I've had my Nokia E71 for over 3 years or thereabouts.

    Iphone4

    I'm using now is a year and a half old. Have a brand new boxed 4 (from my service provider) which is 2 months old (well never unwrapped) I have been told that my hoarding habit is becoming an issue (you guys should see my place) But it's a little box:)

    As for what I will do with the cell providers one...It's not locked (o2 in the UK don't) but I'm thinking about all those programmes where they say "If you'd kept it in its original box it would be worth £$£$£$, as it is it's worth zip. Sadly this excuse isn't working with friends anymore:D

    You should apply for a testing job at Apple. :)

    I'm using an iPhone 3G, which I got at launch. It still works fine, apart from the sluggishness.

    12 months, so do I choose 6-12 or 12-18? :) I picked 6-12 because I think it was later in October that I got my iPhone 4.

    Good point! Couldn't be bothered to amend the poll but I think people get the gist.

    13 months Motorola Droid X. I'm REALLY hoping for a larger screen. I've used a 3.5" ip4 and I just can't cope with the loss of .8" of real estate. If not, I'll wait it out for the next version of iPhone. Definitely dumping Android for iOS though, if not now eventually.

    Apple Don't

    Ask you to drop devices in streams...:D "Everyday Use" is the drill..Surprised its working TBH water is a known killer of iPhones, even sweat on a hot day in a pocket will cause failure. It's the glass. You must have a really good one for it to survive that.

    My current phone is 18-24 months old. It is a basic, standard, cheap Samsung flip phone.

    No option for not upgrading, but:

    iPhone 4 - 11 months (replacement for stolen day 0 4)
    iPhone 3G - 3+ years old, perfectly functional, gifted to GF
    iPhone 2G - Almost 4 years old, perfectly functional, used as a backup for the 4

    ----------

    Clarity is pretty overrated.

    I'm using a 32GB 3GS I got on launch day 2009, so about 27 months. It's had its display replaced but otherwise is still factory condition, and works great except for some reason I don't get push notifications from certain apps anymore. Haven't bothered to try and troubleshoot since I'm getting close to replacing the phone.

    I have always liked the iPhone 4 and will probably get Apple's next model even if it is an incremental-style 4S. I will say, though, that for the first time since the original iPhone, I have started really looking seriously at the competition and haven't ruled out the possibility of going with another device.

    8 years old. Seriously. I had a Blackberry provided by my employer until the beginning of September and now I am using an old Blackberry 7100 until the new iPhone is released. YES I will be getting one ASAP.

    Current phone is the iPhone 3Gs - bought it around launch.

    Now in the market for a new one - very high on my list is a bigger screen.

    I'm only at 7 months of my iP4 so it still has lots of life in it.

    Going on 13 month old iPhone 4. I'm waiting for the next years iPhone 4. iOS 5 will be enough of an upgrade for me this year and I originally bought the iPhone 4 at full price back in early september 2010. So my investment in this phone is at least for two years and plus I still love it as much as I did the day I purchased this phone.

    I am looking forward to seeing the future of iPhone at tomorrows event though.

    I purchased my VZW iPhone 4 back in June, so it's a little over two months old. I most likely will not be upgrading though.

    My sister still uses my old iPhone 2G. Battery life could be better but it still works great.
