    So I am looking to get an Iphone. I know the rumor is that the newer Iphone is coming out in June/July time frame, but I only wanna spend like 199 on the phone, and I know it might be around 499 when it first comes out.

    What do you think, is it gonna be that much better? worth 300 more?

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Where are you getting that number from? You can almost be certain that the base model will be no more than $199

    someone told me thats how much the iPhone 3gs was when it first came out, guess not?

    I was thinking about getting the iPhone 16GB 3GS, should I wait for the new model, are we thinking it will release in June/July, will the features be that much more impressive?

    $499 was/is the unsubsidized price for the 8GB iPhone 3G after the release of the 3GS I believe, so as long as you're eligible for an upgrade, you'll be all set.

    Wise decision would be to WAIT

    I am still using a cheap Nokia circa 2002. Waiting for the 4th iPhone.

    Agreed, WWDC starts a month from today, and we can probably put money on the fact that they will announce and possibly even release the next phone then.

    Agreed. If you buy now, you'll be hating yourself in a month or two.

    WAIT!! Worse case, you can get your 3Gs at a discounted price... (provided they do this year what they did last year with the 3g)
