Also, I don't know of anyone who waited a month to get a 3GS. If a store was out (even an AT&T store) you typically waited days, not weeks. I had friends who didn't line up, put their name in at an AT&T store and got a call to come get their phone in 2-3 days. And I'm in the Chicago area, not exactly a small area.

In that case it would, but just getting it swapped at Apple won't. To the person asking the question, you can't swap it at AT&T, apple only, so you'll have to make an appt at an Apple store or call Apple and do a mail-in repair/replacement.

I have the 3GS already but even that is getting pretty stale. I'm lucky enough though that my family has multiple lines and one line is always eligible for the new iPhone. I'm even luckier that I'm the one who gets to keep the phone.
I just want to see the new iPhone because I'm just praying that 4.0 will be a massive leap from the current OS and even androids offerings. If not, I may have to jump ship to android...

Which one do you have?
Last year when myself and my gf upgraded to the 32GB models of the 3GS, a week before launch we sold our 16GB iPhone 3G models. I got 450$ PER phone off Craigslist. So I got 900$ for the two phones. Then my line was eligible and her's wasn't so 299 + 499 = around 800. I MADE 100$ to upgrade.
We have done that every year and actually ended up pocketing money.
We both have the 32GB models, those are currently going for around 600$ a piece still.

I don't know about getting the new one, but I definitely want to get at least a 16GB model. I will wait and see what new features they put out. I really wouldn't want one until they make an Otterbox Defender case for it if they change the design.

I will be selling mine (32GB 3GS) and my wifes (8GB 3G) to get two new ones. I am hoping to get about $300 to $400 total for them.
Of course, I will be selling AFTER the launch, most likely, so that drops the price.

I'm in the Chicago market, so I can see your point, but the online market will make you more either way. My friend sold his 3G after launch last year (didn't pick up his 3GS til about October), and he still got 300 or so for an 8GB.

Honestly, I know the hardware is going to be significant enough to make me want to upgrade, not to mention the better camera, but it will really depend on the design of the new iPhone. I have confidence it will be as sleek and sexy as the 3G and 3GS but only time will tell for sure.
If it is as nice on the eyes as previous models, I will be in the line bright and early to get my hands on one
