    O2 are trying to push me into upgrading my contract but I've told them I will wait for the next iPhone. There response is to tell me it won't be available until December at the earliest.

    Is this just marketing talk or something more?

    Until Apple announces it, don't believe anyone when they give you release dates. Its not logical.

    O2 have less idea when the iPhone 5 is coming out than you do - they're just saying what they need to in order to convince you to sign up for another contract. They tried that with me this time last year.

    Speak to their retentions team and ask for a SIM-only (1 month) tariff to tide you over until the iPhone 5 comes out, I've heard of people getting stupidly good deals such as £10-15/mth since they're out of contract.

    Agreed. I think that they were just simply trying to push you into signing a new contract.

    All they want you to do is sign a new contract. It's like going into the Apple store, I've talked to some staff and they don't acknowledge the existant of an iPhone 5.
