    It is a portable phone... It makes phone calls, text, and gets info online! iphone 2g thru iphone 5 or what ever you call it they all do they same basic functions! Why would you upgrade when they all do the same basic functions?

    I could care less about the 4S/5, I'm just dying for iOS 5.

    I feel like the iOS 5 carrot has been dangling so close in front me for so long that I'm going to die of being teased with it. :D

    Lol so true. At the end of the day they all do pretty much the same thing. The person you just texted has no clue if it came from the iPhone1 or iPhone5, looks the same on their end. View a webpage, sure it looks sharper/clearer on the i4, but it's still the same webpage you see on any iPhone no big difference. Make a phone call, no difference between any of the iPhone's. E-Mail someone, doesn't matter which iPhone.

    Sure what? Please explain why everybody is caught in this trap that they think they need to upgrade?

    I would prefer if invites went out tomorrow, but I guess I can wait til Wednesday. I need to upgrade from my HD2. The proximity sensor is now dead. My ear/face keep pressing stuff while I'm on a call. It's sooooo annoying!

    Haha. Yeah, the ONLY difference between the iPhone 2G and the iPhone 4 is the screen clarity. :rolleyes:

    Yup, no big difference. The iPhone 2G and iPhone 4 run on the same 3G network? They have the same processor? They have the same graphics rendering? They run the same software? Same cameras? Same LED flash?

    Yep, all iPhones are the same, no one should ever upgrade.

    #1 I do not see how. #2 Alot of people still have 3g/3gs. #3 My family could care less about having the latest and greatest(My 3gs makes calls, text and get info online like all other smart phones that they have).

    1. Because you don't have an iPhone 5. 2. These people are not cool. 3. They are all planning on purchasing the iPhone 5, while you argue it's insignificance in forums

    My sister-in-law a very successful business owner and MAC fan, still uses her iPhone1 she bought back in 2007, she sees no reason to upgrade quite yet, and she uses it all day long for her business. She did say the iPhone5 will be her first upgrade, just because the old one is showing it's age and not working 100% anymore.

    My point is, you can text just fine with the first iPhone or iPhone4. E-mailing is no different. Surfing the web is faster and more clear on the iPhone4 but you still can read the news the same on the old iPhone1, not like your missing something.

    At the end of the day the main tasks of a smartphone are done pretty much the same between the iPhone1 and iPhone4. Only major difference is gaming, but if you don't game on your cell phone it doesn't matter.

    You are right, no one NEEDS to upgrade.. The only things one truly NEEDS are water, food and sleep.

    But some of us love latest & greatest technology.. fastest processors, best screen resolution, fastest wireless technologies, latest mobile features. That's what makes us happy and satisfied.

    Similar reasons why some people choose to drive the latest Audi S5, while 4-year Toyota Camry would have done the trick getting them from A to B.

    If you are happy with your 3-year old iPhone 3G (or whatever) - great, no one forcing you to upgrade to (or even care about) the yet-to-be-released iPhone5. Better question to ask yourself is why do you feel the need to come here and convince everyone in their errant ways?

    Okay. I didn't even really focus my original post on screen resolution, so I don't know what you're trying to get at? What about my other points? Care to address them, and give me more reasons I should never upgrade my phone?
