    Was debating for a while whether I wanted to stick with the old 4GB 2G iPhone that I've had just about 2 years. Longest I've ever had a phone.

    Decided to just do it.

    This time unlike my 2G phone went straight from iphone wrapping into a griffin wave case. Suits my needs. Probably will get a different screen protector though.

    3GS is so much better. Went with 32GB in White. 3G to 3GS would've been a difference but from 2G to 3GS is wow.

    Went over the phone and didn't find any issues. Loving it.

    The speed is a huge improvement.
    Apps and everything just opens up way faster along with loading pages and everything in general is just quicker.

    Coming from a 2G myself I can tell you first hand you will be amazed by the speed and graphics of this new iPhone in EVERY application and program ...it reminds me of going from my G4 PowerBook to my MacBook pro...stunning difference really...

    Actually, the 2G and the 3G had the same processor + RAM, so the difference between either one and the 3GS is the same. In other words, huge. :)

    Yep, you are right about processor. From 2G I was also referring to the slower EDGE network, no GPS, design differences, and other minor things.

    Actually found a buyer for my 2G last night locally as well. $150 wasn't bad for a 4GB 2G especially considering the condition. Let them know about MR so maybe have a new member here as well.

    Maybe time for a new itunes giftcard.

    we got that...

    Big upgrade. You really held out with the 4GB 2g. I wouldn't take it when it was all that was left at AT&T at first launch. Was lucky to get it at an Apple Store the next day with the full 8GB.

    Don't know why folks would go for the smaller size but it's a choice. Other than the huge processor and RAM improvements, the sound quality on 3G is far better than the 2G which I thought was not too good.

    That you got $150 is pretty good considering.

    Welcome to the 32GB club. :cool:

    Took the wave case back and exchanged for a white incase slider. Feel a lot more durable.

    Just trying to see if i'm going to get a screen protector or not
