    Hey there guys,
    I currently use a 16gb iPhone 3GS, but its starting to get to the 'falling apart' stage, I'm thinking of upgrading a little early this year.
    Just to point out, Im in the UK.
    Thing is, I don't know whether to buy a cheap iPhone 4 on eBay and live with that, or wait till the next iPhone comes out and upgrade then.
    I'm a student, and obviously the iPhone 4 will be cheaper to get etc, but do you recon it will be 'obsolete' and 'slow' when the next phone comes out?
    Just a few pointers and ides would be awesome.
    Cheers

    It's really a personal choice. And it's always a waiting game. If you get the 'iPhone5' a few months late, will you wait for the iPhone6?

    But, I've been fortunate enough to get each iPhone model, and yes - there is always a big difference in speed. Especially with iOS becoming more advanced, you really feel it on older devices.

    Wait for the next iPhone. Just get something to hold you over until Sept/Oct.
