    Calling it iPhone 2G is simply wrong. It would be iPhone 2.5G.

    I have a friend who likes to call it iPhone 1G. It confuses people because he then refers to the new one as iPhone 2G and people then say, "you mean the iPhone 3G, right?" and he of course responds with no Apple hasn't produced an iPhone 3G yet. It can be annoying, but humorous.

    I call it an iphone, just like I call my 3g an iPhone.

    I would only differentiate if the conversation needed it.

    Just like when I had different Treo's... I called them all Treo's unless someone needed to know the model.

    My 2 cents: The most popular seems to be 2G. This annoys me because it doesn't run on a "2G" network. 2nd generation...yes, but that isn't the name of the network. So it seems as though "iPhone Edge" would be more accurate. This is all going by what Apple Marketing says the new one is called though. And IMO, the new one should not be an "iPhone 3G". THEY'RE BOTH IPHONES.

    When a new Camry comes out, they don't change the name...it's just a newer model of the Camry. If they build a new interstate for you to drive it on, they don't rename it with the new highway's name on the end. Even if they did (which would be retarded), you're not driving on the same interstate all the time, same as most people aren't on 3G all the time.

    Lame marketing has made us decide what to name the old one. So I just call it "the old iphone".

    Odd that the poll doesn't have a selection for what it actually is. Original or 1st gen.
