    Putting aside the fact that I can sell my old iPhone4 AFTER i get the iPhone5.......
    would this strategy work.
    Someone offered me $200 for my black i4 with a shattered back glass. I figure this is pretty good and will pay for the i5.
    Now should I sell it now, buy another i4 ( at ATT) to use until next week and return it to the store and get the i5 on launch day (assuming I camp/they have it in stock).

    I guess what I am asking is will this work?

    I was thinking of doing the same thing, but you have to pay a restocking fee if you return it.

    Seems like a lot of work. Why not just sell it once you've gotten the new phone??

    The person I was selling my 4S to was upgrading from a 3gs. He said he would buy the 4s if he could have it then. So I reluctantly traded him and now I have the 3GS until my 5 comes on Friday....lol.

    Cutting a 3gs sim to fit in a 4s is a piece of cake, trying to put the microsim in reg sim is not so easy, but I jimmied it enough to work:) Wow this 3gs is garbage!!
