That's the beauty of my situation. My phone is working fine and I don't "need" to upgrade. I'd just like to have some of the cooler things the newer phones have. I have the keyboard, but don't have a touch screen or the scrolling on the screen or the ability (that I know of) for some of the apps that the newer phones all seem to have. I can wait a few months and watch the prices drop. That typically sees the initial purchasers reporting to the mfgs all of the bugs in their system and the mfgs getting a 2nd generation out only a few months after the launch that has the bugs worked out. It's the same reason I'm waiting on a laptop. I'm not prepared to make the switch to Windows 8 until they make it more business friendly and not just a toy for the twitchy teenagers who like to do everything on a tablet while "swiping" with their fingers.
