    Okay so I was looking around eBay just to see prices of iPhones. For unlocked/jailbroken iPhones 8GB 3G they sell from $400-800. This is how much the new 16GB cost ($400) and maby I would have even some extra spending money. But, do you think it's worth selling my iPhone to get the 3GS? Thanks in advance! :D

    The question is: What do you think you should do?

    Well, I think I should personally. However, I want to know if the new iPhone 3GS is worth all this effort and time to try to get it? Is it that better than the iPhone 3G:confused:

    Hahaha :D

    But seriously, I think the iPhone 3G S is definitely worth it. Even the current 3G non S is worth it. But I don't know about $400-800. That's pushing it considering the 32 GB is only $299 subsidized and $499 early upgrade.

    Shouldn't require the time like it did last year (that was a result of failing servers). Pre-order online and next Friday show up and get the 3GS.

    Absolutely go get it.

    Well thanks for all the replies but one more question. I'm very weary of purchasing the iPhone 3GS because you have to resign a two-year contract with ATT. Like this year there will be another iPhone (most likely) next year. And who knows if they are going to stick with ATT or go to a different carrier. So do you think it's still worth it?

    I am still waiting on an actual
    physical change for the iPhone like a major one
    not a matte back or whatever. The iPhone 3G is
    juss added feature for extra cash.... no point (my opinion)
    theres my 2 cents

    but if you decide to get it best of luck with it
    and enjoy it :D

    I also agree. If you have the 3G, I don't think its worth it. I will wait until next year to upgrade
