    So, I plan on getting the new iPad as soon as it is released. But now I don't feel that urge that I usually feel to get the new iPhone. Do you think it will be worth getting the new iPhone, especially since I did more websurfing than anything.

    iPad's not a phone. Micro Sim is for 3G connection for data only.

    I think this is a decision that only you can make, and you can't really make it until you have the iPad and can actually see how much you use your iPhone. How could we possibly predict how you will use your devices, especially when none of us has ever even held an iPad?

    Not to mention the fact that the new iPhone isn't even out yet...

    Personally I wouldn't buy an iPad unless you do a lot of mobile surfing at home, then I would suggest only the WiFi model. I mean I really do not feel like lugging around a 10" screen with me when I can perfectly carry the iPhone. Also if Apple does update the iPhone to 4G LTE, data transfers should be very fast.

    Can't make a decision for you but I have no use for an ipad. My iPhone does almost everything I need it to do and for other stuff I have a laptop. If I could have an un tethered jailbrake life would be great!!

    The iPad cannot make calls, send SMS, cannot take photos/ videos and cannot run ALL the apps made for an iPhone.

    There's about 12,000 "4th gen iPhone" threads on this forum. Isn't that good enough for you? :D

    Get the iPhone, 3GS. When the next gen comes out, sell the 3 GS and get it.

    I feel the same way, until the new phone specs are released, and I have to have it. Sad but true. I hd the 3G, and thought it did everything I needed it to, but then, had to have the SPEED!

    it is ur call but i would say the iphone is the best way to go, i would say it really depends what u need it for if u need a laptop get the ipad instead of the phone but if its just for leaser go the way of the ipad but if want to go the safe route the iphone will be great for just everyday casual life i like to check websites occasionally and play a game or 2 but i would i would only get the ipad if i needed a laptop or since i plan on getting the next iphone if the sim for the new iphone would work in the ipad but thats unlikely. also the portability factor and the possibility of the new iphone being 4g so either way u should wait to see the new phone , but on the other hand by that time if u decide to get the ipad in a couple months there will be a new ipad so that is why i say it is your call snd your problem
