For Current iPhone 3G Owners, Is it worth Paying for the Hardware Upgrade? Some say yes.. others think its an outrage!
HECK NO ITS NOT WORTH IT. Stick with the Free OS Upgrade for now.. I dont think theres enough benefit to dish out another $300
The old iPhone 3G's are now $99 with a contract so why buy the new one with 1 or 2 new features that no one will use.
So the new 3GS is def worth it to me. i am getting it as soon as it comes out.
i dont see how people think its an outrage, its not like they will be forced to upgrade as the older iphone models are still supported by apple! I think i will be getting the 16gb iphone 3GS, i dont have an iphone so might aswell buy the faster/longer battery life etc. If i had an iphone 3G i would just stick with that and upgrade when you are meant to - at the end of your contract.
Lol I still got the first generation iphone with T-mobile might upgrade once it's unlocked, hopefully apple shares with T-Mobile when their contract expires with AT&T in 2010.
what's the worse part of having an iphone with tmobile? i considered it but ended up getting the G1
T-Mobile internet has been acting up latley and I heard they're working on it, but ya it does work.
No, the Iphones in general are serously behind the times. If this was the 1st Iphone that would be another matter and I'd seriously be considering my options.
dude every phone company copied the iphone after it was released... you should watch the 3.0 os video.. that phone just got ahead of everyone again.. tomtom gps, knowing where your phone is thru google maps. Being able make a loud sound so you can find it, or erasing all your info if you don't find it. Crapload of new features, apple definitely innovates bro..
I hate apple. It's the same with all their sh!t, they make these 'surprise' announcements and your always stuck with outdated tech.
But your outdated tech is still so far ahead of almost anything else anyway.
depends on what you are talking about, the new features of cut and paste and MMS?,,, free bottom dwelling cell phones have been doing this for a long long time. a megapixel camera? i have a 1yr old smart phone with a 5megapixel camera and more features than what apple is about to offer. my point being it depends on feature(s) we are talking about as being new/innovative or outdated. BTW everything coming to the iphone has been done long before on either symbian or crappy windows mobile. the iphone though is putting a nice easy usabillity wrapper on it.
However it's on Pay&go here in the UK. I'm thinking of selling it on and paying the extra hundred or so pounds for the new model, but I get the feeling there will be a forth gen version come january time and it will be a total reworking of the entire product, so I think Ill wait it out for the mean time!
People who think it's an outrage probably just got the 3G model ;) I still have the first run of the iPhone so the 3GS is looking nice for me.
I was a little pissed at first but you have to expect this though, it happens with all tech.
I don't think its worth it to upgrade for example from 3G to 3GS Model. But for those who didn't buy an iPhone yet, Go for 3GS or wait for the next gen of iPhone.
Now, If your able to sell your iP3G, for lets say... 200$.. i think the 100$ price difference is well worth it.
