    My birthday is August 27th but my parents already to know what I want for it. I told them I want to switch carriers (I am on T-Mobile and hate it) or get Beats by Dre. Obviously, if I switch carriers, I have to get a phone as soon as possible. So, my question is, When do you think the iPhone 5 will come out? I do not want to switch carriers, get a new phone, and find out that the new iPhone came out and I have to wait another 2 years. If the iPhone comes out around september then that would be great, otherwise I will get the Beats!
    Thanks in advance and sorry if I mislead you by the title or you think I am "spoiled!"

    iPhone 3G was released on July 11, 2008.
    iPhone 3GS was released June 19, 2009.
    iPhone 4 was released on June 24, 2010.
    iPhone 4S was available for pre-order on October 7, 2011.
    So I am guessing you might have to go month-to-month for a short bit if the yearly schedule stays true.

    Beats by Dre? You realize you can spend half as much money and get something by a company that actually knows speakers and headphones, right? Beats by Dre is the Bose of the headphone world. A total joke given the price.

    I guess you could say the same thing about Apple/iOS... but I feel that despite the fact they overcharge and limit you in many ways, the roots of the phone/operating system are still very strong.

    If your parents switch to AT&T, you can upgrade after 1 year if your parents sign another 2-year contract.

    Well, I don't know about you...but the sound quality of any Bose speakers, whether it be Auto, entertainment systems, headphones, or docking stations...is a much higher quality in sound than your average run of the mill speakers. I have Bose in my truck, Bose headphones, and a Bose docking station. I love Bose just as much as I love Apple. :D:apple:

    get them to switch you carriers and buy you a cheap walmart phone and just put a monthly billed sim in it. Then when the iPhone comes out, buy it. Or just tell them to wait and buy your gift when it comes out.
