I wonder how many people are in the same boat as me. I'm not eligible for the full subsidy until December. At that point you're half just over 6 months away from the next generation Iphone. One of my co-workers has the new 3Gs and I'm very jealous, but I'm not going to pay $400- to get a new one. I'm going to guess there is a huge number of people in a similar boat as myself. It's not a horrible thing, as I still like my 3G, but if the 3Gs was available for $200- I would make the switch, but at this point it looks like I'll be skipping this update due to my contract.
