OK - a few months ago I was lucky enough to purchase a refurbished iPhone from AT&T and I've been a happy iPhone user since. This in conjunction with switching over from PC to Mac when my PC died has really brought it all together for me. I've been a longtime fan of Apple, but now I am totally Mac. My plan was to get the refurbished phone to carry me over to when the 3G phone came out. I figured spending $249 wasn't too bad for what might end up being a temporary phone. But when the 3G phone was announced, it didn't appear to have as many new bells and whistles as I had hoped it would. So I decided I would hold off on purchasing one until I saw the 2.0 update and the new programs. Plus, I kinda wanted to wait until I saw the 3G phone in action, to see if it was worth it. Well, I've downloaded many programs from the App Store (mostly free, but I did spend a little over $50 as well) and I'm loving the new software, especially the games. Funny thing is, a lot of it works just fine in my original iPhone. I've been quite pleased. I half expected to see the system requirements of the programs to say "requires GPS" or "requires 3G iPhone". So no complaints there, although July 11th was a rough day getting the 2.0 update. Yesterday, I went to my Apple Store (Pentagon City, VA) and there was a big sign saying they had run out of 3G iPhones. But they had a bunch on display for me to play with. The main thing I was curious about was the internet speed. I expected the 3G phone to be better, but in the store, both the 3G phone and my iPhone worked about the same. Interestingly, my phone had more bars but perhaps the display model was simply tired. I did try restarting it but it made no difference. 3G or not, if your signal strength is poor, your internet is gonna be poor. So, I left the store thinking I'm content with my current phone. I don't think I will be upgrading. The 3G phone didn't push me over the edge to wanting one. So, I gotta say Thank You, Apple for updating my iPhone with great new software and for more cool programs soon to come. Oh, and I am totally loving MobileMe. I recently have become a fanatic about keeping my contacts organized and this push technology is totally cool! Has been working great for me. Apple still rocks!
