Had the unfortunate timing of wife's old iPhone 4 breaking a couple weeks ago (ear speaker stopped working). Took it in to Apple and best option was that she was eligible for fully discounted phone (AT&T). Couldn't convince her to get 5 for $200, she just wanted what 4s offered at $99 (I have 4s as well) - FaceTime over 3g, better camera. She did have to step down to 16gb from 32gb. I think she will regret that downsize over the 2 years. Our 30-day return window expires right at end of this month. I'm trying to convince her to return the phone and rollback to her old iPhone for a couple weeks for better options after the Sept 10 announcement. I'm thinking she could get a better phone for the same money ($99). She is reluctant to have to use a headset for 2 weeks, crappy camera, no facetime over 3g with parents overseas. My main worry is that she won't be any better off for having waited. Since her parents come from out of country 10 days after the media event, if she doesn't have a good phone to use while they are here, I will never hear the end of it. You know the drill. (I understand timing of actual delivery of new phone may not make it, but will be worth it if it's a better phone) Part of me wouldn't mind having her on an older 3g phone to save data for me when I bump up to 5S. But mainly I worry that over 2 years she will come to regret having a 4s versus a 5 variant of some kind. Decisions, decisions.
