Walmart slashes 16GB iPhone 4S price to $148 at some stores
Walmart is now also slashing the price on the 16GB iPhone 4S for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint down to $148 on a two-year contract. The $40 price cut comes just as many other - retailers and carriers - are dropping prices on the iPhone 4S in anticipation for the new iPhone. Should you buy it, though? The answer is a resounding no, unless you just can’t wait for another month.

The new iPhone is expected to end up on shelves on September 21st (in actually less than a month) and it is said to be the biggest upgrade the iPhone series has ever seen. So far, we’ve heard rumors about a bigger, 4-inch screen, 4G LTE support, a faster chip and finally, a brand new design.

You might be tempted to get an iPhone 4S as those deals seem pretty good, but you should also consider you’re signing a two-year contract with it. And in just a month, Apple is expected to slash the price on it even more - down to $99 on contract. With so many amazing new gadgets coming in just a couple of weeks, we would really wait. Also, check out this list of all the devices that might look like a great deal, but that you shouldn’t buy right now.

all of these rumors are chasing people away from buying a new phone... What gives anyone the right to keep passing these along. I was watching my local news and they were talking about it like its set in stone and i know customers are buying into it. so if sept comes and we dont have an iphone launch they are gona freak out... please stop spreading this crap till u know or hear anything from apple. fyi the world will end in dec i read it online!

This is why i like apple, they never fall in to big discounts. Its makes me feel I got my money worth bcuz one year later the phone is still worth around the same price.
