I'm thinking about going back to my first generation iPhone. Has anyone else done this? I have a few questions... 1. Will it start my contract all over again? 2. Will it screw up my eligibility to get the next generation iPhone? The fact is... I still like the original design of the first generation iPhone. The metal is so solid and I love how the back doesn't get sticky or greasy and feels smooth in my hand. It's also easier to type on for some reason. The silent switch is all one piece (no chance of it breaking off). The metal looks better and I won't have to constantly wipe off the back of it. The deal is... I'm pretty OCD... most of you have probably figured that out by now. I'm getting a little tired of constantly losing the battle of keeping my hands perfectly clean to not smudge the back of my 3G and wiping it off all the time. Even though I can't see the smudges, I can feel the slime from my hands (due to condensation and oils). 3G isn't *that* fast for me. EDGE is pretty good for the majority of things I do on the iPhone (MacRumors and chatting on AIM). MMS Isn't important to me and neither is tethering or A2DP. I think the only thing I'll miss is the true GPS (but, I haven't used that for months now because I usually know where I'm going). What do you guys think? Any reason I *shouldn't* downgrade to the first generation iPhone? Edit: I forgot to mention... my 3G is 16GB and the first gen is only 4GB, but I have a 120GB iPod that I can use for music, but it's not as elegant as the iPhone.
