    So I have a 4s with AT&T and can upgrade as of today. I hear lots of story about scuffs and scratches of the 5, well my 4s is in a lifeproof case and I love it. My 4s looks immaculate so my questions is should I really sign a new contract again for the third year ? Bought a 4 in 10' and bought my 4s last oct, and I still have my 4 in awesome condition and ima keep my 4s. Just bcuz I refuse to sell them. But I really want the 5 regardless of what ppl say about. Comments? Suggestions and also I'm OCD about the case I put on it so I would need the new lifeproof case on it. So I would obviously hold out till it came out. Just wanted some suggeations

    Although there is value in the iPhone, to me, holding onto it for so long makes it worthless(value-less? lol). plus there's no warranty?
    i would rather sell it off, and let it pay for my next iPhone.

    As for u, imo, if u want to hold onto them, then the 5 is too soon.
    BUT if u intend to get it between now and the next iphone(5s?), then u should get it now cause the value of the ip5 wont change till the next keynote.

    A few things ... First you bump your own thread especially after only 11 mins like your the only person on the forum with questions / concerns you run a risk of moderators suspending you.

    I buy every iPhone as soon as they launch. I am very nit picky OCD of my iPhones as well. I had my 4S in the life proof case and LOVED it. Underwater video WOW!

    Get the iPhone 5 and get Apple care plus and if anything happens you can get a replacement cheap. I am hoping the life proof case will come out soon for this thing as mine is currently without a case.

    With what a lifeproof case? No buddy. See for all the non retail ppl cases get can get expensive. But the perks of workin at best buy :) means 30$ lifeproof case :)

    I do like the look of the naked iPhone but the life proof case lets you do some pretty cool things with the iPhone while protecting it.

    Ever want to listen to music in the shower?
    Put the iPhone in the pool under water and hear music across the pool crystal clear underwater?
    Underwater pics & videos with sound!

    It's all possible with the life proof case!

    I'm using the Commuter until the LifeProof is released. The commuter is a nice case but its bulky for sure. I did drop it this morning like a dumb azz and am glad I had the case in it.

    I know im a little late but...

    okay, so i know this thread is from a few months back, i was just poking around some lifeproof stuff and well, i ended up here :eek:, anyways, the lifeproof case came out and I got it and LOVE it. it is fantastic, i got my iPhone 5 two days ago, and went straight to Best Buy to get the Lifeproof. it is sleek and perfect, my finger has never touched the actual screen of the phone. I had the lifeproof for my iPhone 4 and loved it as well. For anyone possibly poking through the forums, or ending up stumbling here as i did and are questioning the thought of purchasing the lifeproof case. imo, i say do it! yea $80 is a little steep, but all those cheap cases will eventually add up.... and this case will last! i say go for it, ultimately its obviously up to you.. so yea, thats my 2 cents !
