I bought the original iPhone for over $500 back in 2007, but AT&Ts service is horrible, and as much as I love the iPhone, I had to drop it and switch to Verizon. Now, I've been with Verizon for almost 2 years (2 years this April), and I have one of the ********* phones out there! Ever heard of the Samsung Glyde? Yeah, I hate it! Paid $30 for it, and its just one of the worst phones I've ever had. I had a Samsung on At&t a few years back, and it sucked, I thought Samsung on Verizon would be better, but its the same thing, so I don't ever plan on getting a Samsung product, ever. Anyway, I've been dealing with a horrible phone for 2 years, and I can upgrade when the Verizon iPhone is released in Feb 10th. I really want the white iPhone (if it ever comes out), but I don't know if I should wait for it. I don't mind getting the iPhone 4 now (besides, 4 is my favorite number), and then getting a new iPhone 2 years later (maybe a year later, if possible). But the thing is, an iPhone 4.2/4S/4G/5/Whatever is going to be released in July. Now, I love the iPhone 4, but I would really want to be able to use FaceTime on 3G (or 4G), instead of having to do WiFi. But this brings me to a dilemma, since I don't know any person that has an iPhone, who the hell am I going to FaceTime with? Well, my girlfriend is going to upgrade her phone in August with her family. I told her to get an iPhone, but she's not sure exactly on what she's going to do in August, and she doesn't really want to spend $90-$100 a month on a phone. I know I can do FaceTime with Macs in the next few months, but her MacBook needs the software update (not sure if she's going to do it), and her Laptop is nearly 5 years old (i think she needs an update, cause our video chats never connect anymore. She has an '06 MacBook, and I have a '10 iMac). The only way I can see me and her doing facetime, is if we get the new iPhone in July together. But, again, I'm not sure if she's going to do it. And the longer I wait, the longer my next update will be. So, I'm thinking of just getting the iPhone in February, and the next iPhone 2 years later. I've delt with a horrible phone for almost 2 years, I'm sure I can deal with an amazing phone for 2 years. One thing I need to keep reminding myself, is that I can never keep up with Technology, so I can always say, "I'm going to wait for the next one", but there is always going to be a "next one", you know? Plus, I want to get an iPod. Does anyone here who has an iPhone have an iPod also? I want to get the iPod Nano and turn it into a watch. I can store all my music in it (I got 5gbs of music, and its perfect for the nano), and I can store all my apps/photos/etc, on my 16gb iPhone. I know that people get tired of the redundant, "should I get an iPhone?" threads. But i think that this is somewhat different, cause I'm asking 2 questions, and giving a scenario also with what to do also, cause of my girls situation. Besides, is it so bad on having an iPhone for 2 years?
