    Well, originally, I was not going to get a 4S for two reasons: didn't feel it was much different from 4 and I am not qualified to upgrade for another four months...so I was just going to wait till the next one! Then, my dad said that his line qualifies for an upgrade and that I could get a 4S through his account and he would use my 4! As soon as he said that, I didn't even think for a moment and shouted "YES"! :D

    I cannot wait now. Just ordered it yesterday so it will be later this month. Hope they have jailbreak out by then! :)

    Why did you pre order? You probably could go into a Apple store and get one up front Friday night or Saturday.

    The next two weeks is pretty packed for me so I won't be able to go to a store! I am ok with the wait! :) Plus, my parents are heading back to their place tomorrow so they won't be here to go with me to a store.

    Because selling out in 12 hours nationwide is no biggie, you know?

    I forgot to add that since I won't be using my upgrade when time comes, I could use it as soon as the next iPhone gets released! :D

    Further proof that upgrade eligibility can take a phone from a mere "spec bump" to a full fledged new gotta-have-it opportunity.

    Gotta love it.

    I'm in a similar position. I wasn't due for an upgrade, and I've got a 4 so I figured I'd sit this round out.

    Then I found out my mom is due for an upgrade and she doesn't mind if I use it. Sold my iP4 and I'll be coming out ahead by getting the 4S :D

    Heh - I have 5 phones on my family plan, so since dad pays for the phones, dad gets to use the upgrades (except mom's of course!) and hand down the old phones! I ordered the 4S and my daughter is getting my 4. :)

    I'm using my Dad's upgrade also, but he likes his dumb phone so no loss there. And getting to use my upgrade next summer was my plan too.

    Black/16GB...it's a downgrade but I don't mind! Right now, I have a Black/32GB but I am only using about 7GB! :)
