    I'm prefer the old one for now. For one, I bought it about a month and a half ago. Also, I like the original's aluminium back, due to a personal fondness for metal cased gadgets. The jailbreaking, customizability and the ability unlock the phone without handing it over to some sleazy fellow in the street was an extra plus; I thank the Dev team and all the iPhone hacking community for that.

    The 3G version looks OK, and has lots of nice bells and whistles which would be useful in the UK. In theory I wouldn't need an unlock too badly, since I prefer O2 anyway, however I don't like SIM locks on principle

    I would wait until the 3G version has an jailbreak and unlock available for it.

    I'm deff going to keep my 2g 16gb. I have way to much time invested in this one. But i'm also going to buy a 3g 16gb, i'll wait for an unlock. I have AT&T already so I don't really care about the activation process in the store.I'll just reactivate my 2g when I get home n' if needed i'll have them reactivate the 3g again. :hack:

    What's the rush?

    You know that the damn ATT 3g network will be overloaded and down for the next 2 months ( beginning 11th of July that is)

    Do you really need 3G? How many hours a day to you actually sit starting at the screen of your iphone surfing the web? And if you are doing that....I got no words for you. The MOST i need my iphone for is to search a few things and maybe check a website for a couple of minutes. and if you do use the iphone for heavy website searching, its mostly likely youre within a wifi area..

    3G was an add on to the iPhone but everybody was looking for GPS, Flash, Front Camera, MMS etc nothing was added except tighter security and fixed the hacks.


    I am used to WiFi Browsing. 3G is something too crazy. Hacked TZones $5.99 Edge works well to get email and few minutes of browsing when on the fly. At home we all have WiFi and at work we are sure to connect to Wifi. I have a $49.99+ $5.99 famliy plan on Tmobile for 1000 minutes, huge savings....

    Very true. I Only want to use the iphone to surf while travelling from my home to uni and back. On the Underground (UK), we don't get reception, so can't even use the phone.

    For me, its just to show off that i have the latest gizmos
    Macbook 13.3 (2.2GHZ, 2GB Ram, Leopard OSX)
    Advent 3Ghz Pentium 4 Laptop (Windows XP)
    Phone History: Sony ericsson t20e: Motorloa v525: Nokia 7600: SOny ericsson k700i: sony ericsson k800i: Orange spvm3100 : sony ericsson w880i: Nokia n95: Apple iPhone (sold on ebay).
    currently using: old shitty blackberry till 11th July.

    i would say, ill wait for th iphone 3g before you sell your first gen.
    iphone 3g wont be sold out on the first day. Same as the first gen rush.
    As i remember this girl on the youtube that pay a guy on the front line for 500$ . So that she would not wait on the end lines :lol: Then she found out that AT&T only allow 2 iphone to be sell on each person on that day. She's been ripped off :lol:
