Hi, I'm looking at possibly upgrading from an iPhone 4 to a 4s and due to the high tariffs on Vodaphone compared to other providers im wondering if the device is worth the cost or is it time for a change, I do think over 40 pounds a month and a hefty up front fee is quite excessive so is the phone ,connection and service worth the jump? Thanks
You are only going to get personal opinios as everyone has diffrent needs but in my own opinion No.
I did not see any new features that made me think I could not live my life without them and certainly nothing that made me want to swop a 4S for my 4.
Siri, is a nice gimmick ( at the moment) but is not fully functional for the UK at present. If you want something like it that works well ( and better for the UK) on the 4 go to the iTunes store and search for 'Evi' as that is what siri is based on.
The 4s has an improved camera but if I want proper quality photos I use a 'real' camera.
Do a search on the Apple website and see the side by side comparions and remember that in the end you also have to look at the small print on alternative providers' networks and not just the headline cost.

its not really designed to be an update to an iphone 4 Imho
If the phone is still working why not stick with it, then possibly if you took a higher tariff than required to get the iphone "free" you could look at moving to a much lower tariff untill you need a new phone.

I'm getting the same feeling that 40 a month is really excessive to be honest for a phone that in maybe a few months will be outdated in terms of a newer model been released, looking at all the options sticking with my 4 looks more and more promising, thanks for honest opinion.
Depending on your tariff you could switch to a SIM only deal (once you have reached your contract end date) and possibly half your monthly costs. Since you will be paying less you can save up the difference to put toward the purchase of your new iPhone.

The extra power in the processor is negligible.
The camera provides a slightly better spec.
As for Siri I have this on my iPhone 4 and its useful but not mind blowing and is around 70% accurate.
As suggested sit tight and wait for the next iPhone model.
16gb iphone 4 - black - Firmware :5.0.1 with Siri.
16gb ipod touch - 1st Generation.
