    So I broke my iPhone 4Stoday, I need an iPhone for work and planned to buy the iPhone 5. If I bought a 4S from ATT, could I return it when the 5 comes out?

    You should be able to although you'll likely have to pay a restocking fee.

    A better idea would be to go to an Apple store, pay the $200 for a replacement 4S, and use that until the 5 is released... then sell the 4S for profit.

    If it's broken, more than likely AT&T won't allow you to return it, but that is entirely up to them.

    My bad. I misunderstood your OP. in this case, you should be able to return it after paying a restocking fee.

    A simple phone call to AT&T seems to be in order.

    Apple has a 30-day return policy & no restocking fee. Don't know about carriers.

    It depends on the timing of the actual availability of the new iPhone 5 after Wednesday's announcement.

    AT&T has a 30 day return policy for phones. In the case of the iPhone, the policy is to charge a $35 restocking fee. However, every year during the launch of the new iPhone, AT&T has allowed the $35 fee to be waived for customers that recently ( they will pick a specific date ) purchased the current model to return it and exchange it for the newest model without additional charges.

    Here is the official return policy: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/modals/wirelessmodals/jcr:content/mainpar/genericmodal_6.html

    Best Buy also does not charge a restocking fee.
