    Definitely not worth it for me to trade up at this point.  It was only a few months ago that I traded in my old granny flip phone for the iPHone 4S and I am still amazed every day at the amazing things it can do. Siri and I are getting to be old friends and I've turned into a podcast junkie who takes pictures and posts them to Facebook at the drop of a hat....... oh what a brave new world. I don't know or care what the iPhone 5 can do--4S is all I can handle at the moment.

      Hi robie2,
      I agree, I have an iphone 4s and still haven't used all it is capable of doing.  Like you, I am still good with my current  iphone.

    I switched to the Samsung Droid and the screen is much bigger. This is a big plus if you like to read books on your phone. They also have so many apps that you won't know what to do with yourself. I was a little skeptical at first, but now that I am seeing i phones, they looks too small. My brother who was a huge i phone guy, and would never in a million years consider anything but, is thinking twice about getting another i phone because he has been playing with my Droid. He said that after looking at my phone he does not like looking at his i phone because the screen seems so small.

      Hi Skarlet,
      A friend of mine is also getting a Samsung Droid because of the bigger screen.  I like the large screen, but need something small to toss into my pocket.

    Yes...it is real worth buying the iPhone 5.It is very stylish and sleek in its appearance.I like the specifications it had and when I checked in the price it was too costly.So I got a locked phone through eBay and unlocked it later.I used the remote unlock service from http://www.simpleunlocking.com/apple-iphone-5/rs16wp9/ and removed the network restriction permanently.This ended up very cheaper for me rather than an unlocked one.I really cherish for buying such a wonderful phone.
