Here's the deal. I lost my Original iPhone 4GB the other day at a theme park, and I highly doubt I'm going to get it back. I'm on a family plan with my parents, and I was forced to pay the additional iPhone fee up front last year ($240, $20 x 12 months). Now, I can get the new iPhone for $199, but my dad is going to make me pay up front for the additional costs. So it will be another $360 (for one year), and on top of that, I will most likely need text messaging. I'm wondering if it is even worth it to me anymore. I LOVED the convenience of the iPhone, and used it ALL THE TIME. I have a nice Motorola SLVR that I can use for free, and my cell phone costs will be free (Dad will pay for $9.99 additional line cost). I will have to pay for text messaging, but other than that, nothing. Do you guys think I should step up and get the new iPhone? I am a 20 year old student, in College, entrepenuer, stock trader, traveler. Need some advice!
