Iphone 5 upgrade?

I have an Apple 3gs with an unlimited plan (currently eligible for upgrade) and my contract expires BEFORE the new iPhone comes out...I want the new phone but I am not sure how to proceed...here are my concerns:

 

If I renew my contract (without upgrading), will I lose my eligibility for an upgrade?

If I don't renew and go on "month-to-month", will I lose my grandfathered unlimited data plan?

Finally, will the new phone even be AVAILABLE for upgrade after it's launched?!

 

Anyone, anyone?

I'm fairly sure that if you renew your two-year contract without choosing an upgrade, you will lose the eligibility. Should you decide to operate on a month-to-month service, your Unlimited Data plan should be absolutely fine. However, make sure you keep a close eye on it and that you make 100% certain that you will have it with either your month-to-month service or your new iPhone upgrade.

I'm sure that the new iPhone will be available for upgrades after it is released. Seems silly that it wouldn't be.

I personally think your best bet is to go month-to-month. It'd probably be easier and you'll have more control over your options.
