    I have a blackberry with a contract that's up in Dec. I thought about canceling to get on a family plan so I could cut my bill in half, but I decided to wait for the iphone 5 since it will be one of the contenders among my options. IMO, if you're not in a hurry, just wait. Also, get with the movement. Even if the 5 had no camera and the keyboard was missing the letter "E", you need to have the latest version, fool.

    I'd wait. Even if there aren't major upgrades or new features I'd have to imagine the processor will be faster and given that my old iPhones slowed down with new software updates the same thing will happen with the 4G as time moves on. I used to have a 3G and did not get the 3GS when it came out... by the time the 4G came along it couldn't have been soon enough because my 3G was SLOOOOWWWWWWW.

    What is the status of google voice integration on an iphone these days?

    I could wait for the 5, but since they are making them even more locked down than before, I am worried that google voice will suffer and I should just buy an android phone now.

    More memory as well.

    Its only 3 months away. Best to just suck it up and wait.

    Normally I am not a "just wait, the next version will be so much better" guy but only 2-3 months out and no discounts on iphone4... just wait.

    new version will have a faster processor and likely be the same price.

    my iphone 4 lags quite a bit at times

    Didn't notice the other iPhone 4 thread on the first page? We really need a single, main iPhone iOS thread and one for the iPad. Even if they are stickies.

    Q: Hey, so I was thinking about buying the iPhone 4 now. But, I was wondering if you guys thought I should wait until the iPhone 5 comes out?

    Verizon just sold me a iPhone4 for $100 with a two-year contract.

    Perhaps they have orders to start heavily discounting them in anticipation of the 5.

    Definitely wait. Being locked into a contract unable to get the new phone (without paying $600) sucks.

    My 3GS has a cracked screen, the volume buttons are busted, the power button doesn't work, and it glitches like crazy. I refuse to buy a 4 when the 5 is only a few months away.

    I do'nt understand how people kill their phones like that =/

    i got a 3gs right when it came out and it's still in good cosmetic condition and works the same as before. I'll keep it until it dies (which will hopefully be several years away). Spending $600 on a phone every couple of years is retarded imo.

    The one thing that might make me upgrade is a message waiting light. If i could have that one feature, I'd happily upgrade because it would mean i wouldn't have to carry my damned BB everywhere. I hate having 2 phones. I hardly use my iphone for actual phone calls. It's more for internet/texting and i hate paying $60/mo for that or whatever, but it would be hard to go without at this point...

    well-timed thread. my wife is having to hang up her blackberry when she retires this week, so over the weekend we went to the att store and got her a 3gs (she hardly uses it, so didn't seem to warrant a 4). but the 3gs seems faster than my old 3 and the 4 faster still, so i was right on the cusp of upgrading mine. i'll wait until september.
    btw, there are some good deals on plans out there. we were able to upgrade her to the 3gs for $50, and actually reduce our monthly plan payment, despite adding her iphone package. course, we hadn't changed plans in like 3 years, so that's probably why.
