My old Touch is 32 and it still has space; big music fan but cannot fit my whole collection even on our old 5thGen Pod w/video.

 

What phone are you coming from?

We're coming from 3GS'es. We decided not to opt for the early upgrade for the 4, so our upgrade windows came around this past August, just in time for the 4S.

 

They'll expire again right around the time that AT&T is close to completing its LTE rollout, and we'll upgrade to 5's (or whatever iteration we're on at that point) then.

Well that's sort of what I did. I kept my upgrade eligability of my line i currently use my 3GS on and opened a new line for my 4s, so when i get it i can switch my 4s over my current line and give the new line to my brother with my current 3gs.. so when the iphone 5 comes out i will be eligable for it to uograde!

I'm resistant to being an early adopter on LTE. It's still too nascent a technology and there are still too many bugs to work out of it for me to jump on the bandwagon the second that the phones become available. I find that more often than not, between being at my office, being on the train between home and my office or being at home, I'm usually on Wi-Fi most of the time anyway.

That makes sense... After all, you are seeing countless topics about customers with backordered pre-orders and questions and all of those other questions and complaints. Pretty soon the dust will settle and everyone should have their 4S in time. Smiley Happy

LOL, that's when the flood of topics about "I can't activate my phone" and "My sister/mother/father/next-door neighboor/mailman/bookie was able to activate their phone, but I can't. Why does Apple hate me?!?!" topics will crank up.

Well, the pre-order may go to my son, we'll see...I REALLY wanted the GS2!  Could not find a live one anywhere in town, and I don't buy sight-unseen-anything.  Plus, it's already a year old, technically, and newer Nexus is supposed to be coming out. I know, now I'll be called an Apple fanboy. Smiley Sad

I know some Androids have had the Siri-like feature for 6 mos. or more, IIRC.  Not too sure how it will work, but if you have to scream at it like with our Moshi clock, not good!  Moshi even gets set off talking to herself if a certain voice tone is talking on the TV (next to it)!  Some days, I wanna through her through the wall, LOL!

 

Speaking of Siri--you might find this FUNNY!

Traitor, LOL!  Nothing wrong with learning both products/systems/OSs, IMO. 

 

So, we can expect the iPhone posts to calm down by...January 2012? Smiley Surprised

Nah. Everything should be back to normal by the end of this month/early November. It shouldn't escalate into next year. People will still have questions and complaints (seems that's what all people do anyway... Smiley Wink) but this board will definitely not be as busy.

Maybe not jan 2012, what if the iphone 5 launches not on its usual june launch like the 4s? then it will be a full year of exploded iphone forums bologna. And with the androids, I have played a lot with an old inspre 4g I had, it was a great phone, i lived the expanded capabilities. IMO better than the iphone. but the selection of android phones are so vast. development for the android apps is simply java and it is very easy for users to start making their own apps easily with androids SDK kit. i chose the iphone because yesm, unfortunately i am an iphone fanboy, but when it comes to computers, strictly windows

Aww, no love for WP7? I find Android the most functional (therefore, my favorite) of the 3. WP7 has the nicest interface. iOS just has a lot more apps. Hardware design-wise, though, engineering on the iPhones appear to be topnotch compared to options on Android and WP7.

Nope, not especially... The only Windows 7 phone I have considered is the Samsung Focus, in part because it looked similar to the Captivate. I just wouldn't find WP7 useful for my needs.

But I'll be one of those goofballs standing in line on Friday morning to get one. WITH my autistic son in tow, so I can get both my husband and I's phones ... (he's gotta work, and i have to have 2 bodies to get 2 phones, so son goes with me and then I'll drop him off at school)

 

and I'll be getting a black 16GB iPhone 4s (for hubby) and a white 16GB iPhone 4s (for me) Smiley Happy

I've heard that iPads are great teaching tools for kids, guess an iPhone could be, too?

 

Trying to get a case before delivery.  The brand I've always used is not carried anywhere locally.

 

Are we going to have to worry about things NOT working when we get these new phones?

well like the iphone 4 on verizon... the switches for vibrate/loud and lower i think than the older iphone 4 on att. I read MAYBE that may be the case with the iphone 4s? just keep that in mind when buying a case that the switch may not fit. to give you more insight, otterbox has its own series of cases for the 4s. So if youd ask me, i do think they will be different. we just may have to wait and see!

iSkin is who all of my past Pods wear, and currently their iPhone 4 cases also fit iPhone 4S (for GSM & CDMA, Universal Fit).  I was told the same for all (other brands) cases in the Apple Store (that part may or may not be true).

 

3 more days (not counting Fri.)!
