Damn, I hadn't thought about that. I refuse to switch carriers as long as I have my ulimited plan.

The fact they pull of production like that while moving product at the scale they do is staggering. I certainly wouldn't be willing to sacrifice that refinement of the product to get some useless features like NFC or whatever other crap you guys are on about.
Design and build quality are where Apple dominates IMO. I've yet to hold a phone that feels as solid and that's something I can appreciate. Their image quality is (was? haven't seen what the newest phones can do) above and beyond the competition as well.

edit: Are they using the same camera as on the 4/S?

Right now I have the 32GB black Verizon iPhone 4 with unlimited data plan (I was fortunate enough to get the phone back when they had the unlimited data plan for a limited time).

So the main downside for me is if I switch to the iPhone 5 I'd lose the unlimited data plan which makes me hesitant to buy the new phone.

So far I haven't had any issues with my iPhone 4, though if I were to upgrade to the iPhone 5 I'd strongly consider the 64GB model only because of the large combination of songs, apps, pics, and videos (mostly pics and videos of my daughters) I have, and I do move pics/videos from my phone to my PC to save on phone space but with a 64GB iPhone I'd have the option to do the moves less frequently than I do now.

Any of you have a 64GB iPhone now and either are glad they bought it or regret it?

I don't have the 64, but I do have the 32gb IP4.

Total waste of money. Bought it thinking I can rest easy and store all my music on it, as many pictures as I'd want, etc. Only to find out that the phone DRASTICALLY slows down when its loaded with music and other data. So essentially I bought the 32gb and its useless. Now I barely have 10gb worth of music and pictures on the phone just to keep the performance decent.

Might not be the case with the new A6 processor, but I won't buy another high gb iPhone again. The 16 will be enough for me

I have a 4S 64GB.
I'm glad I got it because I spend a lot of time watching movies on it as well as listening to music. Also, the amount of photos I have on there is absurd.

Definitely will be getting an iPhone 5 with 64GB.

You won't lose unlimited data if you switch phones. I went from the 4 to the 4s and still have unlimited data.

Edit: with AT&T. It's only if you end your contract them that they will not offer you unlimited again.

I didn't notice much lag at all. You must has not set up your phone as new.

That tends to slow things down.

16 is patry for music especially since we won't have unlimited to stream music content

Cowmoo it's the same megapixels but new tech - better low light it looks with the f stop

Totally hear you, bro. Hopefully that won't be the case with the new A6 processor. My wife wound up getting the 16GB iPhone 4 and she also likes taking pics/videos of our daughters and loves to load her phone up with apps so she's getting close to the storage limits of her phone (of course she could always transfer her pics to save on some space but with more storage space she could do that less frequently).

I won't get one for a while. Mine is still perfectly fine, no scratches and works well. I might wait for the first batch to come out and let them work the bugs out.

I haven't paid for an iphone since the original. After years of owning it, due to build quality, they still look brand new. I have absolutely no problem unloading them on ebay for a healthy profit (after a years of use) and then getting the new one. Show me any other phone on the market that can be sold for almost double the original contract price after 2 years. I have yet to see a phone with the same build quality as an iphone, or any apple products for that matter. Most of my home electronics are samsung, my SLR stuff is Canon and my car stuff is Alpine. I have never seen ANY manufacturer (short of bang an olufsen) that pays this much to each detail. Having a sapphire crystal lens cover might be a gimmick to most, but there are watches that don't use sapphire on their faces. They expect to sell 45 million units. Should add nicely to my apple stock shares.

Yeah, with Verizon I was told that when it came time to change phones I'd lose my unlimited data plan since I'd be signing a new contract at which point I'd have to adhere to whatever current plans were in place.

Any Verizon iPhone owners here confirm that the unlimited data plan goes away when getting a new phone with new 2 year contract?

Everyone here is b!tching about Apple not making "enough" improvements. What are you all expecting? 4.5" screen? Do you know the number one complaint about those big ass phones? Doesn't fit in pockets.

Apple does one thing well that no other company has seem to do; having a great USER INTERFACE.

Having awesome specs is great, but if it's not easy to use, then what is the point? Windows Mobile is probably the next best UI I've seen on a mobile device. We shall see what the future holds for them.
