I am currently illegible for an upgrade (since Feb of this year) , but want to hold out until the new iPhone 5 comes out, (which is anticipated in October) rather than upgrade to the 4s. Is there a time limit on how long I can keep my upgrade illegibility before it expires. I don't want to wait until October to find I have to pay an "early upgrade" fee for the upgrade next year.
I can't justify an upgrade to 4s. It seems too little of an upgrade from the iPhone 4.
Solved! See solution

The 4s really isnt designed as an upgrade to the 4 its for people coming off the 3gs if anything. so waiting is a great idea, but dont expect mircales off the next iphone there probably wont be any radical hardware improvements , just software tweaks and "hopefully" a bigger screen. but certainly it has to be better than the 4s for you!
Your contract with Vodafone 12/18/24m ect is a minimum contract period once you are outside of that you are free to upgrade or cancel with 30 days notice or request a pac code to take your number to another network.
If you do nothing your contract rolls on a monthly rolling basis untill you choose one of these options.
If you went on a high tariff to subsidise the iphone that has more minutes than you actually need, you may wish to ask for the plan to be lowered (without recomiting i.e 30 day sim only) then put it back again when you upgrade.
Fingers crossed for June/July but if it is Oct/Nov that could save you quite a bit between now and then

September or October is the latest thinking but no one really knows.
I think that the new Iphone will be more different from the 4S than the 4S was from the 4. Apple will want to make sure that the new Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn't steal their thunder.
