As you might know, I like Apple products. Generally I upgrade to the latest and greatest as soon as it is announced, but I won’t be doing so in the case of the recently announced iPhone 3G S. Why is that? Well, when I heard that you could get the 16 GB version for $199 I was ready to place my order. What I didn’t consider was that AT&T is subsidizing that price, much like they subsidized the cost of my current iPhone 3G.
Since AT&T wants to actually make some money off the iPhone (the nerve!) I’m not eligible for the upgrade price of $199 until 05/12/2010. That leaves me with the choice of shelling out $400 for a new iPhone, or being happy with my current iPhone (and the free OS update that’ll make it feel like a new phone).
I think I’ll save the money this time around and buy whatever new iPhone is available in May 2010.

Poor guy 🙂 I wanted one two but I guess not many of us want to pay full price for any phone.
I’d be poor if I bought one. Zing! 😉 I kid, I kid. I don’t actually
need a new iPhone, so that makes the decision even easier to make.
Sounds like me when I decided to stick with my original one and not buy a 3G. [I’ve already reserved myself a 3GS.]
Hoping for an even beefier one when my AT&T contract runs out next year, and hoping even harder for Verizon to get iPhone rights! Until then, the new OS will have to do. (Seriously, it’s like we’re suffering or something. The iPhone rocks.)
Camera is really crappy on existing i phone. Will appreciate nicer camera and video.
