I currently use the original iPhone (next month it will be close to 1,000 days old) and its definitely starting to feel its age. Screen is less responsive, sleep button is broke, apps take longer to open up, text message chirp goes off then text message pops up a few seconds later, the screen blacks out sometimes, etc etc. Basically everything is slowing down and showing signs of not working the way it use to. I updated to 3.1.3 and actually feel like the iPhone is worse now then before. This phone may not make it till june/july and im only willing to extend my contract for the 4th generation iPhone. I have no desire to get the 3GS if i did i would have bought it last summer. So my question is what should i do if this phone dies or becomes unusable before june/july? What is a cheap alternative or solution to hold me over till the the 4th generation iPhone.
