    Question Who's Pre-Ordering the new iPhone

    on Tuesday?

    I'm going to try at least, my wife is using an 8GB 3G and she is out of her contract by 3 months.

    My 32GB 3GS is all messed up because I constantly drop it and the Hold/Power button does not work anymore but I have 10 months to wait for my renewal.

    My wife's iphone will be $299 and mine will be $599!!!!!!

    One good thing is that I had a Birthday Party today I received $635 in cash and $205 in gift cards!!! So I basicially just got my new Iphone for FREE!!!!

    But it still hurts spending $600 for a new iPhone.

    I was thinking I can add a new line to my family plan and get the new 32GB iPhone at $299 but that will add around $80 to my plan each month, that equals a good $960 extra over the course of the next year.

    Not really sure that's the way to go.

    Are you buying a new one?

    supposedly the new iphone has a mini sim card and so you can't just swap sims with your old iphone.

    Yep, I saw that. Not sure how I can work around this, hopefully they can swap info between phones as I'd like to keep the old number on the new phone.

    I am going to wait a while. I have 6 more months before I can upgrade anyway. It will give them time to work the bugs out.

    Dave, if your upgrade that is in 2010 you can upgrade now and get the discount!!!

    If your upgrade date is Jan 13th 2011 then you have to wait till then to get the discounted price.

    Wow this site say my upgrade price is $499, I just save $100 in 8 hours!!!

    Sal, if you are so hard on your cell phones, why would you spend $600 on one?
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    When the original Iphone hit the market it was 599 so paying 600 today isn't that bad especially for what it does. Cheap electronics cost 199.99 or 299.99 so think of it that way. Not to mention you got all that money for your Birthday so nothing out of pocket so to speak.

    Go for it man , once my contract runs out I will get another Iphone I'm sporting a 3gs.

    I think we need to stop calling them phones... maybe pocket computers with phone capability :) That will help all those who think you're spending 600 bucks on a "phone."


    As for me... my contract is up in July, and I think I'm moving to Android. I've loved my 3G, but all of the Apple BS has officially surpassed all of the benefits, and for my money there are better options out there. Plus, having dropped my iPhone and broken it, having one with TWO sides of glass is just asinine.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I found out that it's $499, not $599

    Basicially it's going to be a birthday gift from the 48 people that came to my birthday party yesterday.

    Agree with you 100%, They should have used a piece of stainless steel that was half the thickness of the back glass. Unless they are planning on introducing a rear display in the future.

    They claim the glass helps reception, but I find that claim dubious.

    A buddy of mine just bought an HTC Incredible, and the back is this awesome rubberized surface, so not only is there some shock protection there, but it doesn't just slip out of your hand like an iPhone does. Could be my next p hone, depending on what comes out in the next few months from the Android fellas.

    If I was going to spend $600 on a phone to use with at&t, theres no doubt it would be a nexus one.

    Sal, I've been loyal Apple user for about 15 years. I love osx, but at&t's horrible service made me break the contract and go with the Evo. I just sold my 3g for 200 this morning. Will sell the wife's when they get new ones in stock this coming week. So far I'm in love with this frikin thing! Fast as help beautiful display, excellent apps, clear calls. The new iPhone is mighty pretty, I just think it was a blockhead move to give that new iPhone to at&t knowing how ill equipped their network is in the northeast. If your free from your contract you might want to look at the evo. some may disagree, just my 2 cents.

    Yeah, cause i'm going to spend as much on a phone as I would on a halfway decent USED CAR. (that sounded more "mean" than I meant it to)

    Generally speaking $200 is my limit on a new phone. Previous iPhone versions were really revolutionary in the features that were added, but this version is nothing but evolutionary. I don't get why Jobs would charge so much for something that is only "catching up" to the competition.

    I'm sure someone could/will correct me though.

    I'll wait till someone cracks it so I can use it on tmobile and get Cydia for all the third party apps.

    Also, if anyone has a 16gb 3g or 3gs they want to sell fairly cheap after you upgrade, I need a bigger harddrive but don't want to spend 250-300 they're going for on craigslist and eBay.

    Just a warning for the new people going to att. They no longer offer the unlimited data plan. You have a choice of 2 plans but its limited data and if you go over its a lot of money. As much as I want, love, and droll over getting the new iphone. I am not going with att.

    I'm gonna keep my unlimited plan which will cost me $5 more a month than the new 2GB plan because I want to see how much more data I use with the new video features of the iPhone 4 first.

    Maybe I'm lost here, but theyre not charging any more than most other phones that are comparable?
