Verizon iPhone 5: How Long Will The Wait Be?

Now that we know the iPhone that will be making its way onto the Verizon network all be it a slightly adapted iPhone 4, it has left us wondering a key question that could potentially frustrate people in the future… How long will it be until we have a Verizon iPhone 5?

We have already reported the Verizon iPhone announcement that gave the month in which it would be released, as well as asking you what was on your Verizon iPhone wish list. Verizon and Apple have left us hanging and wondering what to do, we have the choice of getting a Verizon iPhone 4 when it’s released or waiting till the summer for a Verizon iPhone 5 so long as Apple stick to their regular pattern?

Why not head over to PR News where Alan Ng has added a poll asking your opinion, do you wait for the iPhone 5, are you going to buy the Verizon iPhone 4 or are you undecided? At the moment the lead is with waiting for the Verizon iPhone 5 but things can change with your votes.

Now that we know there is a Verizon iPhone following all the previous hype and speculation, we are finding it a little difficult to believe that Verizon would bring the iPhone 4 and then in a few months unleash the iPhone 5, don’t you?

Let us know how you are feeling about the Verizon iPhone announcement and do you think there will be a Verizon iPhone 5 in the summer?

    I'm so eager to get away from my motorola A855 that i'm willing to take the plunge to a monumentally superior phone. i say this "upgrading" from a 3g to the android, i've replaced the phone twice and now my keys are falling off the keyboard…..

    i'm upgrading immediately.

  • Waiting for i5

    Of course! Apple is all about ripping people off by dropping a new iPhone annually. It's not their fault that VZW just got rights to sell the iPhone. Apple will go according to THEIR plan and release the 5 to AT&T and VZW at the same time. VZW has to catch up somehow…I'm waiting till MAY. -VZW customer

  • Waiting for iPhone 5

    I'm with VZW and I'm getting my update sometime in Febuary when the iPhone 4 is going to be on sale. Sounds like perfect timing right? But still, I'm going to wait for the iPhone 5 to come out because if I got the iPhone 4 now and then in like 4 months later when the iPhone 5 comes out and it seems like EVERYONE has it I would feel like I didn't make a good choice and I don't want to feel that way so that's why I'm going to buy the iPhone 5 when it comes out. :)

      Iphone 5 will not be released. recall it took 18 months for the Iphone 4 to come out after the 3g? get the 4 trust me. apple never guarantees anyhing

      • mark

        you are very wrong iphone 5 will be released in june/july of this year the usual

        • Tim Toyter

          Didn’t turn out that way did it

      • Blake

        Iphone 3GS came out too. I didnt go 3G to 4

  • rita rita

    Verizon added an iPad last month to their offerings and I bought one. The iPad 2 is now going to be announced this month. I am not making the same mistake twice. I want an iPhone, and have been waiting because I don't want to have to deal with AT&T. I have been waiting this long, and June is not that far off. Plus, the Verizon iPhone 4 is CDMA and cannot multitask. Just that is worth waiting for.

    Sadly, I've adapted my expectations and usage patterns to the shite reception ATT iphone offers…so the need and desire for an iphone 4 on VRZ is minimal.

    Whenver the iphone 5 decides to show itself on VRZ, I will be interested, especially if it is 4G.

    I have T-mobile now the Vibrant. I will be switching to Verizon this summer. So why not wait for the 5 because everyone will have the 4. It's great to have something new not everyone has. It's gonna have better features than the 4, no glitches, and will be scratchproof.

  • Ryan

    I have a friend who works for Verizon. And she said to wait until this Summer for the iPhone 5 for Verizon. I don't want to get into a 2 year contract only to have a brand new release come out in 6 months.

  • common sense

    If ive learned anything from my friends going crazy of iphones and when they come out I know that the iphone 5 will be glitchy because of some new thing theyll put on it that will piss everyone off so i think im going with the verizon iphone 4 when it comes out

  • Davina beh

    im going Iphone 5, i love the 4 my BF has it for ATT, but really i want it all. it's totally worth the wait i've gone this long with out it what's another 4 months to see what happens with the Iphone 5

  • David

    I just upgraded on Verizon to the white iPhone 4 about 4 days ago and to say the least I’m not very happy with it. There’s issues That are arising that frankly, just piss me off that are happening. I’m going to return it pay the restocking fee and just wait till summer for the 5
