i don't know how reliable this is, or how true, i am just passing on what i have heard, so don't shoot the messenger. basically my 3gs is due an upgrade, and vodafone rung up to see what i wanted to do and i said that i would either take the 4s, or wait until the iphone 5 comes out (which i assumed would be june/july time like the previous phones). the guy from voda said that apple had relayed to them that the new iphone 5 wouldn't be out until much later in the year, in the hope to build up excitement and expected sales for xmas 2012. because of this info, he offered me the chance to have a sim only deal with my current phone (3gs) for 12 months where i will get 600 mins and unlimited data and texts for only £10.50 a month (usually £21 but for a limited time they are doing it half price). so if there is any truth in this, then it might be worth while me taking this deal, as you can upgrade 70 days early anyway, which means i could upgrade from about the middle of November. anyone else heard these rumours? he did say that this news is on the internet now, but after a quick look i couldn't see much about it?
