I've been waiting, too. I don't think it's pathetic. It's up to Apple when they deliver new products. But, I am very anxious, as well. My wife and I both have 3gs' on ATT (and an iPhone 4 for another family member). But, I'm dying to upgrade and get off of ATT at the same time.
For me though, the October release would actually be perfect timing because my wife's contract won't expire until the end of September. Maybe Steve knew that and did that just for me...HaHa.
I was planning to go to Verizon. But, since they've adopted so many customer unfriendly pricing schemes, I'm probably going to switch to Cellular South instead. And, the iPhone 5 may not be available on their service. Therefore, like you, Android is looking better and better. In fact, Win 7 phones are looking better. While I think Apple makes the best phone, by a long ways, I'm not going to be raped by the service provider just to have an iPhone. Android phones and Windows phones may not be as good. But, I'll do what I need to to avoid being abused by either ATT or Verizon. Hope somebody is listening...
If the iPhone 5 is released for Cellular South (not expecting that), then my problems are solved. Otherwise, there's a very high possibility that I will not be getting an iPHone. And, the end of Sept is my magic date. I should know about the iPhone 5 by then and be completed with the contract. Not only that, but ATT lowered my bill for 3 months to keep me as a customer. The end of Sept will be end of the third month.
So, actually, the timing is just perfect. Still, I'm so anxious....
