    I'm pretty much certain to get one, the main reason being for the extra capacity.

    I went from an 80GB iPod to an 8GB 1st-gen iPhone, and I sorely miss the space for all my videos...

    I'm very curious to know how much it will cost in the UK though...

    Not if they are going to charge me $499.00 for it. I bought a iPhone 3G the first day and my contract of 2 years isn't over and they would make me pay the unsubsidized price :mad:

    Yes, I think the increase in memory is one of the main reasons to get one, 32GB is good with all of these new apps. Just browsing through eBay's new unlocked/jailbroken iPhone 3G's and they are very overpriced. It will be interesting to see remain on there for a while, when the new iPhone comes out for cheaper. I was lucky and managed to buy my original iPhone for £200 new, jailbroken and unlocked on eBay.

    Ouch...

    I think in the future, if I buy a new iPhone (or iPod Touch), I will use it as a iPod Touch without the phone. Maybe find an unlocked one on eBay. Then I would buy a cheap £50 mobile phone to use as a phone, and have all the media, games etc on the iPhone/iPod Touch. I know it defeats the whole object of having the iPhone as a phone, lol, but it would save a whole lot of money on those pricey contract fees.

    Well seeing as how I skipped upgrading to the 3G intentionally for this ver. I guess I might as well, I was really hoping for a matte finish though. But the addition of video, and voice features, with the bigger hard drive I'm sure to get it.

    I can make do with the original iPhone I have. It has everything I need, and most importantly it is good as a portable console - it runs apps well, and also feels more comfortable to hold, being a bit fatter. I think I will wait until the next iPhone with some more features, because right now I'm saving up for a new motorcycle :p.

    I'm not 100% sure on this, but I have heard that in order to upgrade from an iPhone 3G to an iPhone 3GS, you have to pay an extra $300. So $300 + $199 = $499. But that is just for the 16 GB version. If you want the 32 GB, then it is $299 which brings the total to $599.

    Def not.

    If you purchased the iPhone 3G within a year to a year, they are charging you the full $399 for 16gb and $499 for 32GB. I would have instantly jumped if I got the reduced price.

    The new iPhone is not worth 499 in IMO. The iPhone 3G can do 90% of what the new iPhone can do. Bad move by apple and AT&T. For some reason I dont see this as an apple move, I see this as an AT&T move. I can't stand any Wireless carrier in the world. They are all crooks. Pffffft....:mad:

    Yup, would have been in line the first day to buy it at $199 but not at the full price. That's crazy asking for the $499/$599. I can cancel my contract, pay the fee, and buy a 2 year contract for $199 and pay less! Ridiculous.

    Look at the last iPhone. People were waiting in line for iPhone 3g and I was 1 of them. I dont mind paying the $299.99. I mean for god sakes $499? I can buy a mac min for 599. Tell me how that makes any sense at all.

    This is so rediculous. I plan on calling Apple's CR and talking to them about this stupid decision

    I love my iPhone 3G but as of late I'm feeling a bit of a pinch on the 8 gigs I have. Eventually, by the end of the year, I'll probably upgrade.

    Really, what is different with the iPhone 3Gs?

    Apart from a video camera, nothing really. All those things mentioned at the conference today can be achieved by jailbreaking.

    I'm gunna hold out till next year :) And maybe beyond. Apple have the market at the moment, who knows what will be out in a year!
