View Poll Results: Will you purchase the next iPhone?
- 146. You may not vote on this poll
As for a new iPhone, there will be one. Whether it's a small storage upgrade or whatever, there will be one... Apple themselves have said the iPhone life cycle will be every June/July. Can't listen to those Apple store employees all the time, especially when it comes to upcoming products.

I'm kinda starting to hope there isn't a "new" one.. just some small upgrade that I can do on my current 3G model.. reason being is I would like to finish up getting my back tattooed.. if there is a new model coming out I would be hard pressed on what to choose..

Also, remember as has been pointed out before... your current iPhone 3g out of contract will have a good value to sell on ebay etc. out of contract.
TiPb (http://www.theiphoneblog.com/2009/03...rogram-summer/) does have me worried about it a bit now though. To prevent a flood of iPhone 3g models flooding the streets by allowing iPhone 3g user to upgrade early and reset the 2 year contract they may not give you a contract price, but instead you keep your current contract with 1 year left, give them your 3g and get $200 off the price of the new one (which should bring it down to the same price as getting a new 2 year).
So if this happens you are losing out on selling your old phone and getting the contract price

Don't forget that the amount ATT gives you for your phone will depend not only upon what model it is, but its condition. If you bring in a fully functional, yet dinged up iPhone 3G, you aren't getting $200 for it. With store trade ins like that, the devices you bring in usually will go right back out as a refurb, so they need to be in near perfect condition to get optimal trade in value.

Wow I have been missing out again lately. I got a brand new hobby, guns.... so I have been on the gun forums alot. Been missing out on this and my car forum. I voted not sure, I need to see what the changes are and decide if its worth it. I am very happy right now with the 3g. One question, what the hell is a pre?

i'm currently using a curve and can upgrade my phone in april so i plan to get bb bold or curve II (8900) putt around on that till june when the new iphone's come out and then pick one of those up becuase unless they change their policy you can upgrade to an iphone at any time. so i hope to sell whichever bb i get and then be super happy with the new iphone. i'm kind of late to the whole iphone party. i just bought my girlfriend one for valentine's day and i've been playing with it A LOT and now that documents to go will be available, i'm pretty much sold.

Another thing is we are completely in the dark as to what AT&T and Apple have planned for those upgrading this year. Last year they allowed it even if you did not have a upgrade coming to you. So it is a possibility this year.

Im on the tail end of my VZW contract with my BB. It ends in July so I'll be all set for the new Iphone. I really wish they would give a definitive answer on an update soon. If I know they aren't I'd pay the ETF right now and grab a 3G. I guess we'll have to wait till Mayish for that news. Any idea when Apple has to submit it to FCC?

Just got my 3G a few weeks ago. If i can renew my contract and get the new iphone at a good price, ill do it for sure, but being a student that needs to pay rent in NY, i may not have the luxury...Of course, i am beyond happy with my current phone and ill probably still be in honeymoon mode till the update after this rumored one.
