    I dont know why people keep asking why folks want a iphone 3g on tmobile even though they cant use 3g. Its simple, if you loved your first iphone with tmobile than you will love a better looking one, with a better battery, and updated features.

    I won't ask, but I will tell you why IMHO it seems silly to upgrade to the iphone on T-mobile. Simply put, I will 95% of what the new phone will have when I upgrade my firmware to 2.0. Yes, I won't have "true GPS", slightly better battery life, a new profile-slightly better looking (I'm purposely omitting 3G since it's irrelevant for Tmobile users), but I won't be throwing away $500 on a new phone (I have the 16g) while my old one does 95% of what the new one will do.

    For example, I have a 1 1/2 year old macbook pro 2.33. Yes I would like the newer macbook pro that has a 2.5g processor, multitouch, slightly nicer display, etc., but the incremental improvement is so slight that it doesn't make any sense for me to do that. Instead of buying a new Macbook pro for $2,500, I upgraded my hard disk and ram for about $150. I get most of the benefits without spending a fortune. Upgrading to the 2.0 firmware on the iphone seems get me most of what I want without any hassle.

    That was "depend on what you want and not what you need".
    Some people like (need) the new feature. Like the video conferencing, GPS that can help on their daily activity.
    On the second one, they want the first gen iphone because they get more function and freedom rather than the new 2nd gen iphone

    Well put it like this: You didnt have the first iPhone but you just found out about it, and you found out that a new one is coming out. You can only afford the new one, but your only way to afford it is to obtain it for around $200 without the contract. Then you need to unlock it to use with TMobile because that's your carrier.
    Thats my situation, and I'm fine without the new 3G network but the GPS will come in use as well as the iPhone itself. I'd buy the old one, but it just costs too damn much.

    @ Litos... you seem to be missing the conception of stocks, and just talking for mere talk...

    You are incorrect when you say "well if apple's customers buy more phones, more money for apple, and stocks go up" That is BS, it tells you nothing...

    Apple has already made the phones, they can care less if you buy them or not... What counts is their inventory at the end of the month. They have to sell over a certain percentage in order for stock to rise, if they cell under that quota, their stock will drop. It has something to do with people purchasing the iphone (only a very small part), but that is not the main aspect and tells you nothing... Also, they have many more products than just iphone... So they def have to keep that quota.

    My brother is stock broker, and works for the federal exchange in NY.

    Benzz
