    No because I'm not in the US.

    Sad to say, but yes I would...I have waited so long with this dang 3G to upgrade...Im not gonna just stick with ATT for a 4S if I can go elsewhere and get a 5...Why drive a 2010 when you can get a 2012 for almost the same price at another dealership?

    Nope, not a chance
    I've had Sprint in the past and have no desire to return

    There will be no exclusive to Sprint. However, if Apple did something that dumb that is when I would change to android.

    I procrastinated my decision too much and I still don't know. I've been on a separate contract from my family for almost a decade. They are on Sprint and enjoying unlimited everything on one bill while I'm paying extra when I could just buy them lunch to cover the added line but give up a little freedom.

    ... I'll decide how I decide on everything else: When it happens. 22 more hours to go!

    I dont think i would go back either. Their coverage is bad in my area, but my friends 4g phone is fast.

    I'll go back to a "feature phone" with AT&T or Verizon than have an iPhone on Sprint. Seriously. They suck. Down right awful. I've been there and done that and I can list 1000 awful things I'd rather do than go back to Sprint.

    Depends on the differences between the 4S and 5. I'm on a 3GS now with ATT and no contract. ATT service is terrible here. So I'm either switching to Verizon or Sprint.




    But I'm willing to bet it's not an exclusive deal. At WORST it will be exclusive for a few months. That may be the source of the "iPhone 5 coming next year" rumors. It may be coming to ATT and Verizon next year. But again, I doubt it's an exclusive thing.

    No simply because I would be subjected to Sprint's draconian fees, customer support and worst of all their "3G" network which can no longer break 1.3 Mb/s...

    Oh oh! Add to that I'd loose my AT&T Discount (20%), simultaneous surf/talk, and AT&T's high data rates (2.6+ Mb/s).

    Wow I really hope this doesn't happen. Kind of tied to AT&T right now and don't want to switch to Sprint. This would be a huge upset to my apple cart if it turns out to be true tomorrow. Let's hope it ain't so.

    I live in a Spring free part of the US. :(

    Verizon LTE in 2013 is as good (and early) as it gets.

    No way. AT&T's coverage is spotty where I live, Verizon has the monopoly here. I can't see Sprint being great in a rural setting.

    Yes because I'm about to break a contract within the last 3 months on T-Mobile anyway with my crapberry ($50 penalty).

    If the rumors of '4s only' were true, I was planning on doing the following:

    Sprint 4S upon release (Sprint due to lowest ETF)
    $200+ for phone
    use until official iPhone 5 release (want a bigger screen and latest greatest)
    break contract and pay penalty
    sell phone

    Buy new iP5 upon release next cycle with either Sprint or Verizon


    If this happens... a lot less work for me :) Anything to get rid of this blackberry and not a fan of Android. It's just that time.....

    Of course not. Coverage first, then I pick my phone.

    Nope. They have the worst coverage in my area, are CDMA, and are the primary culprit in Rural Connection issues, when making calls.
