I'm a college student on my dad's Sprint contract with an Intercept that I've had since December. It shuts off randomly, I can't take pics anymore or save them, it doesn't make sound when I get a text or call and people can't hear me when I call/receive a call and the screen is cracked My birthday is October 1st and the family told me they'd fund me an iPhone if I switch to my mother's Verizon plan but the announcement is probably the 4th and it won't be available until a couple weeks after for the iPhone 5. My mom really wants to be able to keep in touch so I'm in a desperate phone situation. Should I just take Verizon up on this offer now? http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/219328/20110924/iphone-5-release-verizon-sprint-apple.htm I just don't want to kick myself if the 5 is amazing. Will I be able to return it within 30 days and get the iPhone 5 without the crazy non-contract price?
