    I am wondering: Should I buy the iPhone now or wait that the update 1.1.1 is hack again. I want to use the iPhone as an ipod mainly and I have no need of the wifi itunes store. So I am thinking that I should buy it now and activate it when its still possible ??? The ipod touch has not been hack yet and I am worried its going to take time as well for the iphone 1.1.1 ??????

    I cancelled my iTouch order 2 days ago in favour of an iPhone (should arrive any day - hopefully!). Feature wise the iPhone has so much more to offer. I am going to unlock/hack it immediately using firmware 1.0.2 and use it with Vodafone in Spain. Dont really care about the new Itunes store in firmware 1.1.1. I cannot see what else Apple will add to the newer firmware apart from bug fixes and possibly disabling existing hacks.

    If you want to use it as an iPod mostly... get an iPod touch! :rolleyes: The basic diffrence is the phone feature. I love my iPhone, and I returned my iPod touch two days ago to the Apple Store and traded it for a new iPod Classic. Since I basically had an iPod Touch in my pocket anyways, having an iPhone and the Touch was just stupid. Anyways, if you want an iPod, get an iPod! :apple:

    FYI.... don't get an iPhone until 1.1.1 if you are going to get an iPhone.

    Why? It's just an update. You plug your phone in and click update. Not hard.

    You couldn't figure that out before buying one? Wow.

    What makes you think an iPhone in a box in Apple store is going to have 1.1.1 installed any time in the near future?

    Furthermore, what control/choice over the matter does anyone have? None.

    There is nothing wrong with the coming update...just that it doesn't jive with the BS that some people try to make it do.

    Kinda a split decision! It was a stupid move on my part. I know! I think I bought one as soon as they came into stock. VERY stupid of me! :rolleyes: :apple:

    I'm just sayin' that it would make it easier. Less to do when you are excited and ripping open the box, just to find out that you DON'T have the latest firmware! :eek: :D :apple:

    i thought that the new firmware, 1.1.1 will be the update to kill all the unlocked iphones? and turn them into a brick?
