    Default Are you switching to the Second Generation iPhone ?

    We're pretty sure the 2nd gen iPhone will arrive some where next month, but the question is are you upgrading or not and why.
    By hearing different opinions I'm sure this thread will help us decide what to do, sell our iPhone now or just keep it and forget the new gen.

    Depends on a few things for me:

    1) GPS. If it has true GPS, that would be a feature I'd be willing to pay for. 3G is a nice upgrade, but I am on T-Mobile, have Wi-Fi almost everywhere I go, and am not too excited about 3G speeds anyway (it's still slow guys... just not AS slow lol).

    2) Price vs. Resale of the current 16GB model. If the new one crashes the market on the old one, I'll probably hang onto mine. If it stays $400 or higher for a used unlocked one (making it maybe only about $200 to upgrade (assuming the new one is $599)), I'd jump.

    3) Most importantly: CAN IT BE UNLOCKED/JAILBROKEN? If not, of course not =).

    I am not sure I know enough about the next iPhone to be able to say right now. In a way, I feel stupid now since I just bought my iPhone like two months ago...since I was totally new to the iPhone community and didn't know that there was another one coming out soon.

    If there is no major difference besides 3G, then I'll probably wait until end of the year.

    As a T-Mobile USA user, I am waiting to see what the final specs will be for iPhone 2.0. I am not interested in paying $500+ for native GPS or a front-face camera (assuming they are actually a part of the phone). My main concern is whether Apple comes out with a universal 3g chip for 2.0 that is compatible with T-Mobile's 3g network in the US. If the 2.0 is T-Mobile USA 3g compatible and the price is less than $550, I will probably take the plunge. My wife will then be the beneficiary of a jailbroken 16gb T-Mobile iPhone 1.0

    i very much doubt i will be getting one, my current one seems to be on the way out

    its just too risky to have something like this that could break without a guarantee, plus itll be 270+ and if my current one goes i wont be able to get any of that back! 250 over 9 months is too much

    Just thinking about this...and this is a little off topic but how much faster or slower is 3G compared to EVDO. I am with Sprint and AT&T right now and would like to eventually switch to AT&T but I have to Mogul with Sprint and that has EVDO Rev. A...which is really fast for the most part (it also has GPS and Sprint TV).

    Unless the 3G speeds are much much quicker than EDGE, and the new iPhone has AT&T TV and GPS, I don't think I wanna' throw another $400-$500 into another iPhone.
