if you like the iphone and the iphone 5 isn't what you want, could you not (wait for it)
get the iphone 5, BUT SELL IT..
then buy an ipad mini and have all your stuff on that, it's not big like the normal ipad, it's more pocket friendly i believe (haven't used one myself tbh) and you can link it to your phone via bluetooth/personal hotspot and use the internet as normal, you just have everything that's on your phone (contacts, apps, etc) also on your ipad for if your phone crashes... (my phone has never crashed on me or lost any data, i must be lucky or you must be unlucky)
i know it's a left-field school of thinking, but you should consider all options before making a choice...
