    My 3G seems to lag between some apps, and after I delete a bunch of emails. Is this due to software or hardware. If I get the 3GS will the new speed of the processor and updated software take care of this? If I just update the software will that be good enough or do I need the new phone for the faster processor?

    The hardware in the 3G is getting old. Also the software needs more horsepower to run, but Apple can always optimize it to make it better for the old hardware. So maybe 3.0 will help, or the new iPhone 3GS will do it. It will defiantly run great on the new powerful iPhone 3GS

    OK you talked me into the 3Gs, that was too easy. Just wanted a excuse to buy the new phone, thanks.

    OS 3.0 will increase speed. A 3G S will increase speed even more.
