    Now that Apple has refreshed their online store page, I can't seem to find the 4GB iPhone for $299. Are they all gone already? I'm looking at buying one tomorrow or the next day.

    Kind of a hard concept for people to understand I guess. I mean, Apple discontinued it what, 2 weeks ago, and now people are surprised its hard to find??

    What about your local Apple Store.

    Maybe people figured out that the new 8Gig have the screen problem, so why not go with the cheaper, 4Gig without it?

    Yup I would try your local apple store if you really want one and my 4gb is perfect so far!

    Thankfully I got my wife and daughter's last week. None of the Michigan Apple stores had 4GB in stock, but when I called the ATT store nearby he said he had "plenty". That might be a good place to start.

    Not if all you wanted to spend is $299. That was my limit. I am very happy with my 4GB iPhone. Frankly, I'm not sure what I would do with the additional 4GB if I had it. I've got 2GB free now as it is.

    Try adding one good movie file, and it will fill up fast.

    My 8gb screen is great. 7 series screen.

    $349 is a better deal IF AND ONLY IF you need an additional 4GB, a lot of us don't.

    I spend more time watching YouTube than the videos on my iPhone and I only have a couple gigs of music so it's perfect for me.

    I'm not surprised that it's gone, I was just hoping it would last another day cause I'm buying tomorrow or Friday.

    I'm in college in Lubbock, TX. My local Apple Store is Albuquerque, NM five hours away, so that won't work. I'll have to see if my local AT&T store has any left. Although I highly doubt it.

    I could probably make use of the extra 4GB anyways, so it's not a total loss. I just like that $299 price tag.

    Goodbye 4GB iPhone - you will be missed. Now, where is your younger brother the 16GB iPhone? :D:cool::apple:

    the only reason I'm happy to see the 4GB version gone is that now if my 4GB breaks for some reason and I send it in, they'll have to send me a refurb 8GB one! :D unless they have a stock pile of 4GB for repairs :(

    I love having a 4g phone. When I had an 80g ipod I could never find anything because I spent forever scrolling. I've learned how big of a pain excessive data is.

    I still have 2g free. :)

    Yes, I tried to order one this afternoon via the 800 number. No more left.

    Possibly the 4GB will become a collectors item.

    Yep. Plus, I'm all about instant gratification, so I preferred being able to nip down to the local Apple store and grab one rather than wait for the refurb to come in the mail.
