    I am considering getting an iPhone 4s - it seems like a good buy for $99. Does this still come with ios5 or has it also been updated to ios6 after the latest release last week? I am trying to avoid apple map app, so just want to stick with the older ios version.

    For some odd reason, it seems like any iPhone you buy anywhere (that isn't a cragslist/drug dealer/shady shop off 4th ave.) is always updated to the latest firmware.

    I ordered an iPhone 4s for my sister on iPhone 5 preorder day and it came with 5.1.1 I believe. Shipped from inside the usa and not fresh from china.

    Thanks for your info .... I'm going to call the local Apple store to see if they're selling iphone4's locally with ios5 but I suspect they're only offering the older model online. Their store lines are just busy, hopefully they'll answer here in a timely manner :)

    I'm pretty sure any new model you'll get will have the latest OS, at least as of the the 19th/21st. And they do in fact carry older models in stores and even at other carrier stores. The only ones they don't are unlocked models, I believe.

    I called Apple Store and they said they could not guarantee ios5 but said that they likely have some because they have not received any new iphone4 shipments.

    Now my question .... during activation, does it force you to update from ios5 --> ios6 ? Thanks!
