    Looking for some different opinions. Adding a second iPhone to my daily carry, have a 4 with no issues, but thinking go the $50 3gs route or get another 4.

    I can go either way, and figure some crowd thoughts couldn't ever hurt!

    Well... If I wanted a backup to my 226, I would get something a little smaller. Something that would fit in an ankle holster.

    I guess I'd go with a Razr.

    What do you mean add to your carry?

    You want to carry two iphones? Why? Why not make the second an ipod or ipod touch?

    The phone is the key part, but the e-mail is a bonus. I have tried android, ect, but only really like the apple stuff.

    I'm going through the same choice myself. I think the 3 gs is more durable if it falls....my iPhone 4 feels so easily breakable. On one hand you can get the 3 gs & really not worry about it too much; if you get another iPhone 4, you'll have 2 that will bring in some pretty good money when you sell them for the next generation iPhone. I'm still undecided myself.

    I'd Say iPhone 4 because Apple tends to discontinue iPhones and 3GS is next to be discontinued...so get the iPhone 4 it will last you in the long run

    the iPhone 3Gs is hard to pass up for only $50, especially since its a secondary phone ... I assume you won't be needed the features present in the iPhone 4.

    After using the iPhone 4 for a while though, you'll be cursing the 3GS screen each time you look at it

    I'd go for the 3GS for when I feel nostalgic (geez tech moves fast). Plus you save money.

    Why get a 3GS? It's so old and outdated. Even a samsung focus would be way better.

    I love the variations everyone has. It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one that can go back and forth on this one!

    Thinking I might do the 3gs. It's really a 6 month choice, get the 5 for my main line this summer and move my iPhone 4 to the second line, sell the 3gs then.
