    People who's phone contracts are coming up for renewal, and Apple die-hards who will buy one off contract.

    I just got an iPhone 4 today as a contract upgrade. I knew the iPhone 5 was coming out but I wouldn't be able to get that for 69 and 35 a month. I've jumped from a 3G though, so it'll do me fine for a couple of years.

    World-implosion is only available on the 449 model.

    I'll never get one because I'm one of those sad anti-Apple retards.

    Contract is about to end and I haven't been able to find a phone that comes near the iPhone4 so I'm very interested. Hope it isn't just an iphone4S though or something. Would love the awesome thinness off the S2 but with the brick like strength of the i4. Give me that and I'll be happy, I dont need it to be any faster.

    Thanks to the awesomeness of Vice I've been enjoying my iPhone 4 for over a year now. However my contract is up and I want the new shiny.

    However I agree with mowgli. If it's just some speed upgrade then meh. I want huge screen mega thin!

    I'd prefer a bit more girth tbh.

    Not sure I'll bother even though my contract is up in December.

    I barely use my phone for anything other than email, surfing and reading so not sure what else they can offer me beyond a decent camera upgrade

    although my iphone 4 home button is kinda unresponsive which is annoying.

    I'll be upgrading in March.

    In the meantime, if anyone wants to sell on an iphone 4 please drop me a pm.

    My iPhone 4 button is completely spacked. And like a month out of warranty too.

    You might have to wait a tad longer.

    Has your mum got any sellotape?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    She should do, while I was round there last night I gave her something sticky that came in a roll.

    Without going to off topic, I have dropped my S2 on a hard floor sever times, and there's not a scratch on it. People seem to complain about the S2s plastic back, which is flimsy when removed, but its a solid unit when assembled. My 3GS faired pretty well over its (nearly) 2 years of action, but I wouldn't fancy dropping a iPhone 4 in a hurry with all that glass.

    Be interesting to see what they reveal this time. I guess dual core and a better camera on the hardware side are a given, but will there be a major software change?

    Isn't it just to keep in on par with the S2, same camera spec, stealing some of the interface ideas etc..

    Never been a fan of bumpers or cases, and always wanted to just use it. Ruins the form factor IMO and much less pleasant to hold.

    Going to wait for the iPhone 6 to be honest. Happy with my 4 for now.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    That is all and good but doesn't change the fact that it is a very cheap plastic case. Forget it is in your back pocket when sitting on a bench and there will be tears. I don't know how they did it but the i4's glass is rock solid. Seriously it is the toughest phone I have ever owned and is now my weapon of choice to grab in my pocket when I've wandered into the wrong area in Glasgow!

    Edit: I swear I'm getting worse at typing on it though!

    Like I'd trust her again! She's only recently allowed to tie my shoelaces again!

    Christ I wondered who left that. Did not go well on my toast this morning.

    Phone only ever lives in right side trouser pocket, it's the law ;)

    The S2 is certainly stronger than it's case suggests, and I have seen several friends shattered i4s. All anecdotal, and if you look after your phone it shouldn't happen regardless though.

    I like the non-scratch back on the S2.
