Sprint currently still has unlimited data. I wonder if they'll keep that when the iPhone 5 comes to Sprint (if it does)?

I figure they will as it's one of the few selling points they have over AT&T and Verizon.

Go to the app store and look up the dolphin web browser. 4 of the pictures list 'no SIM' but one shows Verizon 4G. So either they got an advanced model or they're ficking around.

Anyone wondering if they are eligible, there is a worthless web page AT&T has put up (because it will only say if you are eligible for a cheap upgrade, not *when* you will be eligible), so the best way to check is to dial *639# from your phone (that you want to upgrade). You'll get a text message with the details in a few minutes.

I'm a "may" be eligible on 12/04/2011. That's not too far off. I may opt to do the upgrade if the *may* proves to be *am*. Why is it "may" anyway?

I use the camera on my 4 a lot - it's pretty much our main camera now - and the improvements to it in the 4s look great especially that it pulls in 73% more light, plus Siri looks awesome *and* there's now a 64 GB model! I want all that stuff (and the improved performance is great too, of course). Yeah, wouldn't have minded seeing 4G, but it's not a deal-breaker for me, especially since I'm not sure of the coverage 4G has around here.

EDIT: err... this is for AT&T. I don't know if that number works the same for Verizon (or Sprint)

AT&T has gone through and pushed upgrade dates forward before iPhone launches in the past. If yours falls before the end of the year, history says you'll get pulled up. Mine is sitting at 11/25 and I'd be surprised if AT&T didn't bump me up. It's not like I can threaten to go to another carrier though, given AT&T phones are the only ones that get reception where I work.

If they bump me up, I will be happy. Keeping fingers crossed and will check again as we approach the pre-order date.

Good luck. I emailed customer service to ask if they are bumping people. I'll post a response here if I get one.

edit: from another forum, I'm already reading about others being bumped, so it is happening. Just a waiting game for everyone now.

i dialed *638#. it says upgrade available on 2/20/12. but i can upgrade for a $250 fee, plus the cost of the phone, a 2 year commitment and an $18 upgrade fee. i think i'll wait.

What's the discount? I have 10 months left on my 2 year commitment but I could be persuaded to sign another 2 year deal for a discount on the phone... that I'm not currently planning on buying.

199/299/399 for 16/32/64GB if you have full upgrade eligibility. Add $250 to each one if you are only eligible for early upgrade pricing.

Wow - PASS. Looks like I'll wait until my contract is up before considering it.

I'm almost 1 year into my 2 year contract and AT&T is saying I can upgrade for the regular subsidized price, yet my lady friend is way past a year and has to pay an extra $250.

Doesn't make sense.

EDIT: Oh maybe bump hasn't hit her account?

Did you take advantage of the early upgrade for the iPhone 4? I think people who upgraded early to the iPhone 4 will have to wait longer this time around and if you didn't take advantage of that you may still have that option. My iPhone 4 contract is over a year old and I can't upgrade until March. Not complaining since I am passing this time around though.

Interesting theory. Prior to the 4s being announced, I could upgrade for discounted price + $250 (i.e., $449.99 for 16GB iPhone 4). I looked today, and it said I could upgrade at "full retail price" (i.e., $649.99 for iPhone 4s).

It's one thing to not be eligible for the full discounted price, but to have my eligibility end up getting fucked over in the process (that is, an iPhone 4 is more expensive for me this week compared to last) makes no bloody sense to me.

Anyone install iOS 5 GM yet? I decided to give up my Jailbreak and give it a go. It seems like it's everything people have been wanting from iOS from day one... I know there is supposed to be twitter integration but I can't seem to find out how to do it. I was able to add my account information into iOS but that's about it.

Haven't bothered. Figured I'd just wait for the final release of iOS 5 tomorrow. I don't jailbreak anyway, so moot for me.

I just tried to dial *638# and I get, "Error performing request. Uknown error."

LOL. I guess they are getting swamped. I was hoping to see that they'd bumped me up, but I guess I have to wait to figure it out.


I'm really glad to hear that they finally updated Facebook for the iPad. I'll download the update when I get a chance.

EDIT: Doh! Wrong number. Was supposed to be *639#. Whoops. :) And they haven't bumped me up, at least not yet. It's still showing as 12/04/11 for me. Oh well.

Finally decided to take the iPhone plunge. Just ordered a black 16gb iPhone 4S from Verizon.

I'm dropping Netflix streaming as soon as I finish Madmen, and dropping my Gym membership as my condo upgraded the work our room and it's more than good enough now. So those bills going away offset paying for a dataplan so I finally took the plunge.

Congrats. Now just don't download the Netflix mobile app. You may find that having it at your fingertips makes it that much harder to get rid of..

Enjoy your new phone.

I've never even used the Netflix app on my IPad. :-)

If I'm going to watch a movie or show I'll generally wait and watch it on my 50" TV.

On top of regular phone uses, I'll mainly use it for apps, email and some internet stuff on the go. Kindle app is one I really want as I semi-often get stuck waiting some where and don't have my kindle or iPad with me.

I'll use it some for music as well as I seldom carry my nano or creative mp3 players around.
