This is going to be my first iPhone and....
I can't contain myself!!!!
So here's the skinny;
My fiancè and I are going to be getting new phones here soon and getting off our parents cell phone plans. I honestly never thought I would have an iPhone and I was going to be perfectly content with a 3g until I started doing research and I found this site.
I was all set to get my iPhone 3g I picked out a case and everything! Good thing I didn't buy any of it.
Now I'm waiting. I have a ton of new apps waiting to be downloaded (that are iphone only), I've watched a video walk-through on the 3.0 firmware and I'm ready.
I'm about to burst out of my skin! I'm hopeing the release it the week of my vacation July 19th-25th so I can camp out and wait for it.
I just needed to post this to see if anyone else is in the same boat as me.

I would LOVE to get a new iphone (if there is one) but I just received the 3g free through my company and dont want to carry 2 iphones at the same time.
If the new iphone is as good or better than the 3g, you and your fiance will love it!!
Happy Waiting, its worth it!

I like to camp out for phones. I like doing that kind of stuff, not because I'm insane, I just honestly think it's fun. Last time my brother, girlfriend and I went to the Apple store in Woodfield Mall (schaumburg, IL) we got there around 8pm and we were the 4th ppl there. It started raining, and it dawned on us, we didn't bring chairs and they didn't let us in the mall til 7am, haha Well...2 of us went to walmart and got milk crates to sit on cause they were cheaper than 30$ folding chairs we would probably never use again considering I had 3 at home already. Nonetheless, all the people in line were great, more started coming around 10 and 11, and we all had a blast talking about iphones and poker and other random stuff. It was definitely a cool experience.
There's actually videos some guy took and put on youtube from the launch w/ interviews of ppl in line (we didn't, apparently i looked too busy reading harry potter ) but you can kind of see us in some of them, my brother's standing up and I'm sitting on the ground reading and I think the girlfriend was about ready to pass out come 7am, ha
I didn't vote though because I think this year it will depend on if we really like the new ones enough to upgrade. If it's just a different casing with a glowing apple and added video, we can wait until we're eligible, unless they allow exceptions or the prices are decent. I'm sure we could fetch a fair amount for our current 3Gs.
Pretty soon we'll have to start some iDay meetup threads

I was in a similar position recently. I was planning to wait till WWDC to purchase an iPhone in the hopes of seeing the new version announced. But I just couldn't take the wait in the end and broke down and bought a 3G.
Unless there are significant battery life improvements with the new one I'm not going to be terribly upset.
