Of course, the "let's talk iPhone" could refer to voice assistance.  We shall see.

I wonder how "hot" the iPhone 5 will be!  Umm, if it's an iPhone 5 they're going to discuss.  ;)

Well, it's pre-order day and I've managed to hold off ordering the iPhone 4S.  I'll TRY to wait for the iPhone 5.

I'm personally going to wait for the 5 simply because I'm hoping it will have a bigger screen. Oh, and finally have that elusive charm/strap loop I've wanted on one since the very beginning.

I'm going to get the iPhone 4S but I have to wait until November because that is the earliest AT&T will let me without paying the huge upgrade fee.

I'll be using it when I help David Pogue with his iOS 5 Missing Manual book, as his tech editor.

(nods) I agree. Even though I just now got my new iPhone 4, the new 4S's high-end model has twice as much memory, which is exactly the sort of chunk I've been wanting for a long time to hold all my music and movies on. ;)

When I bought mine at Best Buy, I also bought for it their Buyback Plan (or whatever the heck it's called) that allows you to "trade in" your original purchase for credit towards another more recent one (the amount depending on how long you've owned it for, of course ;) ). So that will help.

However, I have the feeling I'm going to wait and see what the 5 is like first, because what with competing smartphones now having larger screens than the current model I'm curious to see if Apple's new incarnation will have a larger screen and whatever else it might happen to have.

What time do you think they'll finally start revealing the 5... next October again, maybe?

Gazelle.com also buys back any electronic devices.  Get quotes, ship it off.... get money!   :dollar:  When new products have a known release date and you know you intend to upgrade, get a quote from Gazelle.com .... That's how you can get top dollar.  Then ship your older device within the window of when the quote is valid to Gazelle.  They will evaluate your device for quality, and then send you a check.

Yeah, also Apple has a link to a company which will buy back iPhones, etc.  I'm thinking about it.  I wonder if I should stand in line again?  Ugh, I think not...

Edited to note that I just bought it, to be delivered to my house.  I'll get it before the end of the month.  I'm not standing in line again like I did for the iPad 2.  What a fiasco that was.

Well, I cancelled my iPhone 4S order in order to order it with AppleCare+.  AppleCare+ HAS to be added at the time of iPhone 4S purchase.
