    Hi,


    With the excitement building up around the release of the iphone 5, many will be already locked into lengthy contracts.

    Not everyone has the disposable cash to buy one outright and not everyone will want to sell their ip4, or get enough from the sale to buy the ip5

    so......

    My question is................


    What would you do or go without to raise the cash to buy the iphone 5 !

    Sell a kidney.

    Not really. I'd wait until my contract was up (part of the reason I don't use contracts in the first place)

    I'd wait patiently for 3-4 months then pay the $199 upgrade fee.

    Log onto the carriers website and order one reguardless where I'm at on my contract.. Nothing will stop me.

    I'd just buy one outright. Money's no object when you're buying an iPhone. ;)

    Already got enough money to get it sim free when it's released. If however I spend all of my trust fund (which is a lot, so quite frankly impossible) I'll probably sell my motorcycle or something.

    I would go without nothing. I really enjoy my iPhone4, and would like an iPhone5. But not until my contract is up - which should be around the time iPhone6 is released.

    I have not yet reached the point where I must have the very latest. I sort of can understand the need - sort of. But my enjoyment of the newest is tempered by my bank account - which I will not deplete to have the newest.

    I will sell my iphone 4 like common sense states and then pay the difference out of my pocket paying the full retail price for the phone 5....

    My contract ends december 2012 so will wait then and get the iPhone 6 most likely.

    I'm perfectly happy with my iPhone 4
