    Hi there. I have been away from this forum for a long time.. ANYWAYS, i just updated my phone from 2.0 to 2.2!!!

    I have a question though, is there something about the "new maps street view" feature where it does not work on non 3G phones??

    I wanted to see what it looked like, so i went to the map, dropped a pin and tapped it, but the normal little pop up came up, no icon for street view..

    Did i do something wrong?

    Sorry if this has been asked, i read around, but what they said to do didnt work

    Street View is only available for certain locations.

    OHHH i wonder if it is possible to upload pics of your street if there isnt one available! I would totally do that :)

    Thanks for the clarification

    I uploaded 2.2 without really reading what was included, i was SOOO hoping for some push capabilities.. I am SOO out of the loop, i just assumed it came out and i missed something and i would be VERY happy. Also waiting for video ..

    Maybe i will eventaully buy a new 3G. Do you knwo if they give discounts to iphone owners who had theirs for 1 year? i cant remember if ATT has 1 year or 2 year contracts.

    You can't upload your own photos, they use their own special camera to take the photos. Apple offers the iPhone at a subsidized price if you recommit to a 2-year contract.

    Welcome back. Checkout the 3G iPhones (refurbs) for $99 at att.com, but as you mentioned, they require a 2 year contract...

    Yes you can with a new contract. As long as you signed up with the 1st gen before the 3g came out, you are eligible for an upgrade.

    You sure can, because your v1 iPhone was not sold at a subsidized price; so whether you paid $399, $499, $599 or $175 from EB or CL, you still qualify for the subsidized 3G iPhone pricing, even the refurbs if they are still available...

    THAT is freaking AWESOME!!!! mine has a big ol' crack in the upper left.. I had it on the roof of my car and closed the door and it fell of into a pile of rocks. Nice huh?

    The crack doesnt bother me too much though, but the screen is driving me CRAZY. It flickers a lot when you plug it into anything. And overall, i would really like to have 3G now that its a little more capable.
