There is NO REASON to get the iPhone 3G instead of the 3GS. If you do you're a sucker for a number of reasons. Why, because of SPEED. The 3G S has a next gen processor, double the ram, and a next gen graphics card. Every single thing you do on the iPhone 3GS is two to three times faster than the iPhone 3G. You're stuck with this phone for two year. Why get one that's slow and laggy, to spend 2653 instead of 2753. If you really really don't want the 3GS's much much faster speed, much better camera, voice commands, video camera and a ton of other features, GET THE 3GS ANYWAYS, and sell it on ebay. You can easily get $900 on ebay for an iphone 3GS because that's how much it costs to buy in Germany and France. Then you can buy an iPhone 3G on ebay for $400. You basically netted $400 in profit.
