Hey All! Before anyone starts complaining about me opening a new thread for the ''get it or not'' theme... I just want to highlight that i opened it so that i explain my case, and you guyz will help me out... so, here's the thing... i've owned the 1st gen iPod touch since its release, and used it for more than a year but early this year it got stolen! a week passed and no sign of it... i started thinking about considering an iPhone, (its not that easy to get it here in Lebanon) (btw, the AppStore is officially available here, but not the iPhone! ) and so it began... from February I followed iphone news like hell!! and got all exited about the 3GS! it would be an amazing upgrade from a 1st gen iPod touch... (and after 6 (that's SIX) frickin LONG ipod-less months) So, Apple is releasing it in more than 80 countries but NOT in Lebanon! I was so pissed! I was even more pissed that it would be released in Venezuela (on august 9th), AND im traveling there for a month... from June 27th to July 26th!!! so I won't be able to get it myself! but i found a loophole... my aunt is coming from venezuela on august 19th (the iphone would have been released by then) HERE's the dilemma: what if my aunt gets me the iPhone and I start experiencing all those bad things w/ it, that everyone is reporting... the 15-Khz tone... the heating... the discoloration... the bad battery... im saying so, because there are no Apple Stores here in Lebanon... so i cant get authorized replacements or something... and there's no one i know going or comin from venezuela so that i can send the iphone for a replacement... :S one last thing... my budget is almost exact for the purchase, so its a no-go for 'buy and sell it on ebay' or 'buy 3g now, and get the 3gs when they sort things out'.... P.S. sorry for the really long thread, but it's necessary so that my case is fully understood. and Thanks in advance for any help!!
