AT&T does do trade-ins, but you would have to pay any difference though, and it will most likely be sold out, so you might have to wait a bit before you get yours

the phone may not be avaialble within the 30 day window - if the phone does not become generally available until after the buyers remorse period is done, they will not exchange it.

If you are that set on a 5, then would sugest you retrun the 4 and go back to your old phone on the buyers remorse, let everything reset and get the new 5 when it is generally available. Heard that the orders are already on 2 week back order

Re: exchange new 4S for a 5

Alright! Thanks Guys!!
Just as long i have 30 days to exchange then im good. Im fine paying the fee. I havent opened the headphone n charger packaging so im good on that. All i would have to do is reset everything. im going out of town n wont be back until early october. Hopefully the iphone 5 hype would die down so i dont have to wait for it. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Have you been living in an isolation chamber for the past month? How is it even possible to not know the iPhone 5 was coming?

you are booking on a lot the phone being available within 30 days where you purchased it, last I saw was the back order for pre-orders is 2 - 3 weeks, if you bet wrong you are stuck with the crrent phone, 30 days is the time limit
