    I am very excited because this will be my first iPhone.  I’ve had various Android phones for the past few years and I just haven’t been impressed…and before that, Blackberry (ugh, don’t even get me started on that lol!).  So I’m super excited!  My husband and I preordered.

    I’m really excited! Mostly because I have the 4, and because my home button is broken and rarely works so I’m looking forward to having a phone that isn’t a PITA to use! I’m not eligible for an upgrade until October 6th..I’m counting down!

    No, but I can’t vote for any of the options in your poll!

    I just got the iPhone 4s, I’m happy with it and definitely don’t plan on upgrading when the 5 comes out!

    Hmmm I did not vote because I am not excited about the iphone 5, but I don’t fit into the flip-phone/andriod options. I am actually really grumpy about the 5 because of the shit they’re pulling with the new adapter.

    @Mrs. Coyote:  Yep, that’s why I wanted the 4s instead!

    @MissBoPeep:  Word. I have a 3gs right now and I think I might upgrade to the 4s. So maybe I am excited for the 5 because the cost of the 4s will drop. 😉

    I’m excited that the iPhone 4/4s will drop in price, but I don’t plan to buy the 5. : )

    I’m still happy with my 3GS, but am looking forward to visiting the Apple store to play with the 5.

    I’m excited about it!!! I pre-ordered, although I didn’t make a decision about it fast enough to order at 8am and have it on D-day next week haha. By the time I ordered it said 2-3 weeks (plus shipping time) so I am telling myself it will be here by my birthday at the end of October and any earlier is just a bonus! 

    I have an iPhone4 right now, and that was my first ever iPhone. I have really loved it, but I have used it to DEATH and the battery life isn’t what it needs to be anymore (I use it as my primary work phone so it is important to me that it is in tip top shape). 

    I did waffle a bit between just getting the 4s at the new discounted price vs. getting the 5, but my brother who is a total tech geek talked me into the 5 because he said that over the course of the next 2 years (I always wait 2 years for a new phone to get the discounted price) the ios6 is going to keep up with updates much better than ios5 and the ios5 will feel really lag-y. Might be crap but… it was only a $100 difference and it is tax deductible for me so I was not too worried about it. 

    I’m super pumped to get it when it (eventually) comes and I can’t wait until everyone starts making cute cases for it! I never got a cute case for my 4 so that is something I really want for my 5.

    I, too, am more excited than I care to admit!  I don’t really care about computers or tablets or MP3 players, or other gadgets…but oh lord, I am a fanatic for an awesome phone.  Specifically, an iPhone!  I’ve been waiting since May when I dropped my iPhone 4 and cracked the screen.  The day I found out that our AT&T contract was eligible for an upgrade was better than my birthday.  I am so tempted to jump in line at the local store on Friday but that’s too techy for me.  I’ll probably wait a couple weeks, but you better believe I have been watching the videos on the apple website!! Plus, Darling Husband and I desperately need to upgrade from 16GB to 32GB….both of us have totally maxed out or storage and splurging on the bigger memory is exciting!
