Absolutely the worst timing. I was hoping my iPhone 2G would hold out until the iPhone 5 was released. First the Wi-Fi became flaky. Then a mysterious black mark began expanding the width of the LED screen. Now the battery after hours in the cradle can't get beyond a 10-13% charge (red sliver). So on the eve of the 2011 iPhone 5 introduction, I find myself in need of an iPhone something... 3G, 3GS, 4. Ebay prices for each are north of $200. AT&T has a 3GS for $49 with 2-yr contract. I'm trying to think rationally. Maybe the $49 3GS could be a stopgap until next year's iPhone when 4G should be available?
