05-09-2011, 08:12 PM #1Question about upgrading to iPhone 5
I currently have an iPhone 4, which I purcahsed about 5 months ago. I was wondering about what are my choices if I were to upgrade to the iPhone 5.
I remember hearing that even though the early upgrade fee is $400, (or maybe even $450 now [I read about AT&T hiking the fees]), that AT&T allowed people within the FIRST TWO weeks of a new iPhone release to get it for $200, regardless of plan. Of course, a new 2 year plan would have to be signed, which I am okay with.
I am wondering how much I would have to pay if I got the iPhone 5. Is it $200 or $450 or $300 or $500 or what?
Please only answer if you know for sure. Thanks!

Why would you ask about something that's not even out yet?

Yeah its a little hard with not having the product out if we go off the history tho you will probably have to pay 450 or 550 with an early upgrade

Wait for a release date, i made the mistake of signing a 2 year contract when i should have waited, but by the time the iPhone 5 comes out i can save up enough to buy one outright unlocked from Apple. i'm not really in a hurry to get it from my iPhone 4 so best idea would be save up some money and wait it out and buy a unlocked one, why would you pay $400+ and update your 2 year contract along with another $200-$300 for the iPhone 4, possibly paying the same as buying a new one outright.
Paying $600-$700 for one with AT&T on a new 2 year contract or...
Paying $600-$700 for one without a new contract?
So save up some money and buy it outright imo.

From what heard there is really no set date for the iPhone 5... At least according to my massive google searches but I heard they are having some issues with iOS5 beta.. So maybe a possible delay?

Isn't it usually if you havent reached at least 1 year there's no discount and you buy for retail? And if you've got 1 year into the contract, it's got a slight discount. And then with two years full you get the full discounted price. So I think if it's one year it would look to be partially discounted from full retail. But to me that's not enough to upgrade and extend my contract.
