    Yeah, but you'd have to pay full price for it. If you can wait, wait. If you're due for an upgrade it's better to use it on the new iPhone which should be coming out later this year. Or if you're starting a new contract, same thing. If you really can't wait though, and you use your upgrade for the 4S, you will have to pay I think starting $649 for it.

    I agree with Annie, I would wait. Perhaps buy a used iP4 or 4S on craigs list or eBay for the time being. Better then paying $649 I would think.

    Good plan B. Didn't even think about that. Yeah definitely get the iP4 on CL or eBay, they're around $250-$300, and when the time comes use the upgrade for discounted pricing for the new iPhone which would likely be $200.
