    I will upgrade to a 32 gb device on 12/12. I'll have to decide if I want that to count as my Christmas present to myself.

    Guessing that is your upgrade date.

    We have two lines. One is up for a discount on 7/12, so we'll wait until then. The other is 4/2010, so I'm going to pay the $400 for the 16GB and stand in line on the 19th.

    You can pre-order from AT&T and Apple and they both say they'll deliver by the 19th, so you can do fedex if you like. I want to get my line on. I don't think lines will be as crazy as last year for at least 7 different reasons.

    The 2X speed, better battery for web surfing, better camera with A/F and video are all strong reasons why I want this.

    I'll probably tweet from the line:

    I'm going to keep my iPhone 3G and update to 3.0. My uncles dying to get the iPhone 3Gs, but he's with Verizon. I told him to cancel Verizon, pay the ETF (which is not going to be much because he's been with them for awhile. They bring ETF down $5 each month) And he should get the iPhone 3G for $99. Just so he's not blowin' cash everywhere trying to get the new iPhone and dealing with Verizon.

    It's not only songs because I have tons of movies. This is what my library looks like.

    - 15.06 GB of Music. I can only put less than 14GB on my iPhone
    - 17.82 GB of Music Videos/Movies/ TV Shows. Not to mention all the other movies on my external hard drive.

    I'm more of a movie person and I love music as well. After I put my music on , I only have 2GB left and that's good enough for 1 or MAYBE 2 movies. That's not good enough for me.

    And coming from a 32GB iPod Video with a growing library since I've got this phone ( Oct 2008 )... I think it's quite understandable.

    Because my phone is the main line on a family plan I can upgrade with full discount after only 12 months, so July 12th is my buy day. I'm hoping to sell my 16GB 3G for $300-$400 so I could potentially walk away with more money than I started with

    Yes, I'll be upgrading. I still have the original 2G so I'm eligible for the subsidized pricing.

    I have already ordered my 32gb black 3Gs phone! I can't wait till it shows up!!!
    I was planning to upgrade My 16gb alumuinum 1st gen device to a 3g phone a few months ago but did some research and heard about a possible upgrade so I waited and boy am I happy I did. It is absolutely and utterly worth every penny!

    I will save my upgrade for when the next one comes out. This one isn't worth it to me. $200 for video and a little bit of a faster processor? No thanks.

    I'm probably gonna be begging for a 64GB Soon.

    I think when apple can get up to 64GB iPhone, they'll probably have a true HD(720p) iPhone because I think one HD movie is like 15GBs... crazy. A TV show is probably 9-10GB-ish.
