    Hi, in need of a new iPhone. Should I buy the iPhone 4S now or buy the new iPhone at launch; presumably later on in the year?

    The buyers guide is saying the 4S cycle is almost over.

    You "need" a new iPhone ... do you need it urgently?

    Similar situation here, my iPhone 4 is dying a slow death, however, I'm not at all tempted by the 4S. I'm either going to wait for the next iPhone, or, and more likely, hop over to Android; it's looking far better these days.

    You are at the same situation as someone bought an iPhone 4 on Jul 30, 2011.


    I was told from a former attorney of Samsung that Samsung has been hiring employees to post comments on the internet. You can get a job.

    I have a similar situation. My iPhone 4 is becoming so slow, although it has been slow enough for some time now. I'm not due an upgrade until the end of July but I'm going to wait for the new iPhone. I think it's going to be just awesome.

    You're 'dern right! Anything lacking the seal of approval[apple symbol] is automatically mediocre at best! :p

    EDIT: You people can't take a joke. Congratulations.

    If your current phone is not working get a 4S. If your current phone is working wait. We are about 100 days from the next iPhone, so if you can wait, I would.

    Either buy the Samsung Galaxy S3 or wait for the iPhone 5. The iPhone 4S is not an option unless you really really need an iOS device now and Android is no option.

    I'm waiting for the iPhone 5 myself.

    I'm in the same boat with my wife's flip phone that just died. She wants to move up to an iPhone, but getting a 4S with a new contract this late in the game is the stupidest thing you could do. Scanning eBay and craigs list for something used to hold her over until the new iPhone comes out.

    My iPhone 4 was stolen earlier this week and had no reservations in getting the 4s.

    My story is obviously a little different and i buy mine on payg.

    Really man? Really?!

    I'd say just wait if you already have an iPhone. Yes the next iPhone will probably be coming out in a few months, probably to get ready for the holidays.

    Or you could wait until the next, next iPhone. Either way, you'll be just fine.

    Wait if you can, perhaps you can find a used phone on craigslist to tied you over?

    I purchased my iPhone4 and iPad1 both on launch day. Each now seems to get slower and crankier as the days go by. I think that with each new iteration of devices the support for previous versions becomes sporadic at best. That being said, I plan to wait for the iPhone 5 and purchase the NEW iPad at the same time.

    I've got younger relatives that are anxiously waiting for me to pass on my older versions of both.
