    Say, next year around this time, will sprint let me upgrade although I have eye contract from the 4s? AT&T let me be elidgible for upgrades from iPhone to iPhone (excluding this one since I got my iPhone 4 like 4 months ago) although my contract wasn't up, and they're letting some people do it now...

    no, unless they make some changes. I recently wanted to upgrade from my EVO to the Galaxy SII and after a couple of weeks talking to seemingly everyone at Sprint I ended up having to cancel my line, pay the ETF fee, transfer my line to a go phone, then port the number back to sprint. It was that or pay the $600 (or whatever it is) for retail.

    They wouldn't even let me buy out of the contract then sign a new one to get a new phone. They said as soon as I did it my phone number would be lost. Their phone support even coached me to do it this way.
