    I'm currently carrying two items around with me, the phone and iPod touch. I would like to combine the two and go for the 16gb iPhone.
    I've heard that there may be a refresh due, anyone got any ideas when that will be. I don't want an exact date (Q1, Q2 etc). Also what are the chances of a 32gb, I take it I would have to pay more than the current 16gb?

    What are your thoughts, should I go for it now while the prices are fairly cheap?

    Get it now. Enjoy it. If another version of additional storage is added to the iPhone, upgrade to it if need be.

    I did the same thing almost a year ago, with the first gen touch and iPhone. I love the convergence of the iPhone.
    I've lost count the amount of times I see people on the underground or bus, listening to an iPod touch or Nano, whilst holding another phone in hand too.
    Now, I understand that people have their various reasons for doing that, but for me, having only one gadget to worry about/charge, is wonderful.

    A new iPhone will probably be announced in June, and will launch in July. Just buy one now, do you really want to wait until July to get an iPhone? :D

    Lots of rumours posted in this forum and on the main site. 32GB is a possibility, as is a processor upgrade and bump in screen resolution. Also, some people are hoping for a front side camera lens for video conferencing and a myriad other things. Don't think anyone expects to get copy 'n' paste though.

    Bottom line, if your current Touch is good enough for you, a 16GB iPhone will be too. Get one now and enjoy it. Your contract should be nearly up by the time of the next upgrade after this one, in July '10.

    I agree with the above. Just go ahead and get it now. 3G iPhones sell for at least 500 on ebay(still!)

    Look for the summer before a new iPhone is released. August maybe?

    IMO you should get one now. If a new one comes out that you REALLY want, just jailbreak and unlock (to get more money) the iPhone, and sell on eBay. You'll get at least £50 extra just for doing a 10 minute process :p

    Oh, and then buy the new one of course :D

    I had the Sprint Touch and then the Diamond. Last week I purchased the iphone. The screen is awesome and very easy to use. Why did I wait so long to get the iphone. This phone just works right out of the box.
