    Default Still rocking a 3GS?

    Who all is still using a 3GS? Where I live I seem to see far more people using the 3GS (I assume its the 3GS) vs iPhone 4.

    I'm still using one and love it. How come you haven't upgraded?

    I'm still using the 3G. Couldn't afford to spend $200 to upgrade when the 4 came out and at this point I'm just going to wait for the 5. I wouldn't upgrade every year anyway, I don't need the absolute latest and greatest at all times.

    Land of last year. Lol. I choose to use a 3GS bro.

    And I never forget. We both know how important it is to your inflated ego.

    I had an iPhone 4 and thought it was fantastic. Had one at launch and then sold it when I deployed. Got back and ended up with tmobile and unfortunately they can't be unlocked...yet. Still though, my 3GS is great.

    4.2.1. It's been the best since I upgraded to ios 4 and it's been so long since I was on 3.1.3 so I don't know if it's slower compared to that. Typing lags sometimes but not bad and some games slowdown a bit but that's probably because it has less ram and stuff compared to the newer ones.

    Just bought the iPhone 3GS (January). Couldn't pass up a $49 iPhone. Would love to have FaceTime, but that's all I miss. When the iPhone 4 goes to $49, I guess I'll upgrade.

    If 3GS had retina, a quality camera, and awesome battery life then I could still see me rock my white one. The 3GS is still a very nice phone though.

    Still rocking a 3GS here in Austin, TX. My girlfriend has had an i4 for a while. Only thing I really like better about it is the retina display. Sure it has it's other perks, but I would never really use facetime, and side by side opening apps the 3GS is only a few seconds behind. Unlike a 3G compared to a 3GS where the 3GS is about 3-5x slower.

    I've had an upgrade for a while now...I'm going to wait for i5 to come out so I can brag for a while (or a year).

    I still have a 3GS. Switched from a BlackBerry, and I'm on T-Mobile, so all I could afford was a used 3GS from craigslist.

    Probably will try to pick up a factory unlocked iPhone 4 or 5 when I visit Australia later this year. Then I won't have to deal with the baseband/firmware thing.

    With all this talk now of the iPhone 5 being maybe pushed back, anyone considering making the switch to the 4? I just did a few days ago. Found an unlocked one.

    Im trying to decide right now. I use my phone a lot. I really want a better screen and camera. Im either jumping to WP7 which I like a lot or picking up a 4.

    I love the retina display. I forgot how great it was. I gave WP7 a shot and it was very very lacking. Even with the nodo update.
