    They always release sales figures... at the right time. Now isn't the right time.

    The right time always means when they beat a record I'm sure we will hear week 1 results vs 4s week 1. Especially if the are already delayed on shipping. This years stocks was the most plentiful of all I believe the keynote said.

    Same here. But I'll probably eventually upgrade. I'm in no hurry. I may just wait until iOS 6 is officially jailbroken on the 5.

    I have a 4s and I'm still getting a 5. There many people just like me that want the features the 5 has. Having a 4 and being able to upgrade isn't the only reason why the 5 is going to fly off the shelves because everyone knows most carriers allow early upgrades when the iPhones are released. Some people just want the phone, period and could careless if you can use NFC or anything like that, it's called a wallet and debit card and 98% of the world still uses this age old technology called a wallet and debit card....

    i had all the iphones. but i stopped buying them after the 4s. i think the 4s is a joke and the iphone 5 is not better either. iphone 5 should have been released last year and now we should have an iphone 6 in my opinion....

    Sales strategy. If you ever ask a store clerk about the quantity of a certain product, they will always tell you supply is low and demand is high to pressure you into buying on the spot.

    Hmmm, it seems to me...that all the people who are claiming to be jumping to the S3 aren't exactly "jumping" at the opportunity to do so...Has the S3 seen a BIG spike in sales (as users of this forum would have you believe) as the masses make the leap from a iPhone to the S3?? Based off of the actual sales, I would say.....NOOOOO.

    If all of you people claiming to switch to a different device actually do so...good for you! You will not be missed! Not by the users of this forum, and according to sales, not by Apple! All you deserters are expendable, replaceable, and unimportant. I look forward to the new class of users that will undoubtably be visiting this site! Hopefully they will be more intelligent, and be more concerned with the phones actual performance and quality, and less about how they will look in public when they pull out their new phone...hoping someone will notice and congratulate them on their "cool new phone".

    The only feature that I wish it had was the fingerprint scanner on the home button that would have been kick ***. I live in a rural area NFC wouldn't have ever been used by me so I definitely don't miss it at all

    I'm upgrading from the 4s to the 5 call me stupid. The reason I'm doing it is mainly for the Verizon 4g. People that are jumping ship good for u. Why post it here that ur leaving for a s3 or whatever. What ever works for you cool.

    Why do iPhone users get so offensive when someone is moving to a different device? You want the iPhone 5, they don't. What's the issue?
    As for the S3 being a copy, I wish Apple would allow the iPhone to do half of what the S3 can do. I'm comparing stock to stock.
    As for NFC, yes it's not used yet. However Apple could have helped push it to. There are more uses for NFC than mobile payment options.
    Just for the record, no I do not have a S3.
