    Post the #1 thing you would like it to have.

    Personally I think 32gig should have been included, or keep the $20 data plan. Will upgrade to 2.0 software but not likely get a new phone.

    It's pretty hot 8/10, and I'm buying one because I can finally own an iPhone without worrying about it bricking or $20,000 bills.

    The 3G iPhone itself is an 8/10. The AT&T pricing is 1/10 - I wish I could blend that...
    I plan on sticking with my first-gen. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up a 16GB model on the cheap soon (I have a 4GB.)

    Are you aware that the bills with the 3G iPhone will actually be higher than with the first-gen? If cost is a major factor for you, you should evaluate getting a used first-gen.

    I'm in Canada. Before now we had to risk getting caught using an iPhone on Rogers' unlimited data plan and getting a HUGE bill. Some people got bills for up to $20,000! We also had the constant worry that our phones could be bricked at any time.

    As long as my 1G works, it will do all I need. There is no real problem with the 3G- I do not mind the back really- but there is not enough in it either to prompt an upgrade.

    If I had NO iPhone, I would get it. When it gets 32G and a better camera, I will consider upgrading (assuming that a simple Vid recorder is software).

    The hardware updates? 4.5 (by the way, 5/10 should be missing too much).

    App Store, 2.0 firmware and MobileMe, 8.5/10.

    The only thing I'm really disappointed in is the release date.....July 11, WTF!? This will be my first iPhone and I actually like the look of this one better than the 1st gen. I also wish they would have added MMS but that may come in the app store hopefully.

    It's just that frikin release date!

    Out of curiosity, what is so surprising or disappointing about July 11?

    I wasn't expecting a front-facing camera, 32GB version or any of the other things that people were expecting.

    I was only expecting 3G and GPS.

    So, 10/10 for me.

    The lack of a transporter beam is a deal-breaker for me. :mad:

    I'm waiting for the iPhone Nehalem.

    I'm definitely satisfied with what they have done to the iPhone. 3G and GPS is definitely enough for me along with the App Store.

    8/10 for just a few reason:

    1) Lack of 32GB memory option (Apple could definitely do this, and people would have still bough it even at $400 or $500).

    2) Lack of Copy/Paste, A2DP, tethering, Flash, MMS, etc, etc... I just lump all this stuff together because none of them are deal-breakers but still detract sometimes.

    :confused:

    Maybe we should refrain from rating the iPhone until it's actually out?

    If i could add in one of the plethora of wishes and dreams rolling around these forums, I think I would add a 32GB model.

    The only thing that I wish that the new iPhone 3G had is MMS. I still don't get why Apple hasn't built this into the software. :confused:

    From the announced specs it 8/10 for me

    The phone is pretty much ideal for me but can't be perfect - where could it go to if so?

    Definitely bummed by the lack of 32GB... I thought they would make one for sure. I'd pay for it.

    I have to disagree. I'm extremly excited about the app store but I'll have that on my old iphone.

    As far as waiting a freakin year just to add a 3g chip and gps? That seems like 1 engineer could whip up in a weekend. Apple must have hundreds working on the iphone between software and hardware, seems kinda dumb to have 999 on software and the lonely 1 working on hardware :p

    Way to not stay ahead of the competition on that front.
