My iPhone sold on eBay last night for $365 plus $35 shipping since it's going to the UK from the US. I'm quite pleased to have gotten back so much after using it for almost a year. I'll be using this money to get the 3G phone as soon as it comes out.

I think our first generation iPhones are going to command a premium since you will have to buy the 3G version in the store and activate it right then and there...at least that is what I am gathering from the news from today. So, if you can't get it out the door without activating it, and people want unlocked/unactivated/jailbroken iPhones, it is very likely our current models will sell for MORE than they do now! Just a thought...

I'm going to keep the iPhone I have now. It's not "old" and I can't see spending money for what should accurately be called a refresh of the iPhone. The 3G iPhone can't be really described as all that new. Look at what the new features are:
It offers 3G (I don't live in a 3G area and the available WiFi networks are faster than 3G). Many folks don't live in a 3G area.
It also offers GPS (I don't need turn by turn directions), nor do most non technophobes.
It has the new 2.0 software (which I can get for my current iPhone without spending a dime).
The big extra features, stuff that we haven't imagined yet, will probably be on a future iPhone, which will have a faster processor, more memory and probably go for about $400. I will probably get that phone.

I'll keep the old one at least until the bugs are worked out of the new one. Locate's cool but I can simply text my friends to find out where they're having lunch..... 16GB would be nice but probably not $399.00 worth of nice.
I really like maps, so GPS doesn't fascinate quite so much. I have it built in my wifes Honda Civic Hybrid and we travel in that here in the States.
I know I'll keep the one I have at least for travel.

I just came back to iPhone after a brief foray in the Treo 750 WM-6 world and, since the T750 is 3G; I had a chance to observe battery usage and availability of 3G in my area.
In most of my daily travels, I have no 3G availability. Thus the 3G iPhone would not be a big benefit. Yes the "me.com cloud" would be useful but I can always sync my iPhone to my notebook and then sync my iPhone with my desktop when I get home. In all these years, I have never accessed my home iMac from the road. Thus, I never leave it turned on!
Other 3G dependent SDK Apps, while handy, are not a big necessity for me.
So, I'm with you: I'll wait for iPhone 3.0
