    #1 Reason: I'm tired of waiting for RIM to properly thread sms messages.. Yes I know OS 5.0 will support it, but my device dosn't support 5.0.

    Apps Baby! The all-in-one phone/pod is a nice touch so I'm jumping ship and moving to the Dark Side.

    I would like a iPhone because it is fun, unlike my current phone (The LG VX10000, a crappy knockoff). It will also make sitting through boring classes more enjoyable.

    #1 reason I want an iPhone 3G[s] is for that "S"! The boost in RAM and CPU speed is amazing! I was really hoping they would add that this time around. I have the 3G and it is great but it does crash every so often. I am always running out of RAM, so with the 3G[s] I dont see that happening anytime soon.

    Im without a doubt a hardcore Apple enthusiast. I love all the products and services. The iPhone 3G is the greatest smartphone on the planet and the best device for that matter. I own a 16GB white 3G and the only thing better than that would be a 32GB white iPhone 3G[S] ! Im a complete tech nerd and would go absolutely bonkers if I had a 3G[S]. Thanks guys!

    I could give you all of the obvious reasons..

    * I bought the first gen phone not too long after it came out.
    * Paid $150 to get out of my TMO Contract added to phones steep price.
    * Upgraded to 3g when I was eligible.
    * Even was suckered into a mobile me subscription.
    * Even got a job working for apple just so I could nerd out all day just to end up getting mrsa at work almost dying and then having my hours lowered to next to nothing before quitting.

    But the real reason I deserve the 3GS is my pledge to say screw blenders... I want to start a new website...

    www . blowupmyiphone . com

    If that doesnt fly I can always start a iphone 3gs video camera shot porn site.

    I need the 3gs for speed (more RAM finally!) and space. I had to pay 400 for my 8 gig 3g (was still on a contract) and to get a 32gig iPhone would be the best thing right now. But I am unable to afford it.

    The #1 reason i should win this contest is i feel like i need to have the new speed & storage capacity to to prove my argument of how much greater the iphone is than the blackberry.A lot of my colleges & counter parts live & die by their blackberry and i feel like i have been patient and learned the iphone to where i have a very strong argument as to why the blackberry can't touch the iphone. I think if i am able to pick up and keep moving with the new features as well as more space for my music files i will be able to continue to compete and execute my work without feeling i need a blackberry for certain tasks. Allow me to represent to the music industry how they are jaded with thier feel of neccesity for the blackberry..Viva La iphone!! You guys are great! Thanks

    The screen on my current iPhone mysteriously cracked in my pocket a few weeks ago. My iPhone has never looked so unappealing. I remember the good days when the inviting display of hi def colors and shapes weren't distorted and tarnished by hundreds of tiny cracks. To relive those good days, Apple wants $200. It's a price I really don't want to pay. It would bring such joy to win your contest. Please help me remember the beauty of the iPhone by upgrading me to the iPhone 3G s!!

    I just got my first iPhone, and it was better than I expected. The only problem is I underestimated the storage space. I would loooooove to have a 32 gb one, to rub it in my husband's bb-owning face that I'm cooler (because I am! )

    I could use greater speed and more storage, and to have the newest, bestest gadget on the block (for once!)

    Pick me, pick me!!

    The "S" in 3GS would be for "Spouse," as switching to AT&T to get my first iPhone, would require my wife to get a new iPhone too.

    All that trouble to get a phone, and have her end up with a standard phone would be...well, suicide.

    Thank you for third chance to win.

    I currently own a sprint upstage ive had it since it came out i never really have enough money to afford a iphone. I am deciding to switch over to at&t and decided i would like to have a iphone. But still ran into the same problem "how can i afford such a device" and browing through twitter i saw the iphone giveaway post and thought this could be my chance. Like what can it hurt to just give it a try and hopefully win. The iphone is so great my friend does so much on it there is almost a app for everything it looks great. I wish i could afford one. Well i hope i win.

    Take care

    The deal-maker for me to upgrade my current iPhone relates to my job. I'm a webmaster for a school district and we've recently made the move to distribute our information/news through social media. I believe the 32gb iPhone 3G(s) will help me accomplish this through snapshots, captured video, posting tweets, and status updates of anything and everything involving our great students, parents, staff, and community members. It's amazing how this new innovative device has so much to offer that will benefit a person in my position.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    The reason I am upgrading is to finally get rid of the horrible EDGE network signal. I hated going back to Edge from 3G, but I am glad I am going back to it.

    I would like to upgrade to an iphone 3G s simply because it's ... an iphone. I mean, come on.

    I've been stuck on this forsaken Verizon network with a less-than-stellar crackberry for too long. I've been using apple since I was 8 (currently 19).

    If im to survive in the big city next year for college, I'm gunna need a pretty piece of apple hardware by my side. And i dont mean my macbook.

    Wow, why would I want to upgrade? The reason would be because of just about every feature it now has. As a current 2G iPhone owner my options for doing things on the iPhone have expanded with the new 3.0 yet still limited. How about the ability for video so now i can shoot video of my pregnant wife and our baby when its born, or MMS pics/videos of the baby to family that are not able to visit, or a compass to find my way to the hospital and turn-by-turn GPS for that matter when "it's time." How about the speed that I'm gonna need to find something on my phone or safari cause my wife is having a craving and my life is on the line. I can find everyday reasons to have one as all of us can. Every father and expectant father knows how valuable this device would be.

    Thanks guys for throwing another giveaway. It's been fun!

    I'd also like to thank my wife and our first expectant child for help on being part of the reason I need to upgrade.

    I want the new iPhone 3GS for the improved speed, storage, and voice control. I drive to school everyday and having Voice Control will surely make my drive a lot more safer! I also want to pack in a bunch of Lost episodes and it's a bit hard to fit the amount I want in my current 16GB iPhone 3G. And the speed I want because I LOVE the games on the iPhone. After reading the reviews its pretty clear that there is an evident increase in speed and I would love to take advantage of that.

    the reason i want the 3gs is because i haven't upgraded my phone in about 5 years. i'm using an old lg ax4270. last time i went in for parts they had no idea that they ever supported this phone. it's dreadful, and is hardly able to recieve calls anymore. I can occasionally get a text through, but generally it fails. I can only dream of a world where anything vaguely media related occurs on my handheld device. Sigh.

    Why I want to upgrade....

    I am still using my original 1st gen iPhone 8GB. So there are plenty of reasons. The biggest reasons I want the 3Gs is for the video recording and better camera. My wife and I had a little girl in January. She is now 5 months old and that ability to record all those cute moments will be worth it alone.

    On top of that, the faster internet, GPS, Compass, 3 megapixel camera, better battery life, and so much more. Not having upgraded to the 3G when it came out means that to me the upgrade to the 3Gs is all that much better. I am getting so much more. LOL

    Well, ever since I heard of the Iphone I have been tempted to get one. I've had an ipod touch for almost 1 and a half years and I have loved it. I jailbroke it a week after I got it running 1.1.2 firmware. I had also discovered that there are some applications that don't work on the ipod but work on the Iphone. I decided that someday I would get one. I have yet to get an Iphone but I am hoping to get the 3Gs. I have been folowing your blog for a while and its because of you that I want an Iphone. Maybe I will get one soon!

    Why upgrade? 3 reasons for me. 1--More storage. I would love to be able to carry more music, as well as re-rip many of my CD's, which are currently on my iPhone at 192 kps, and upgrade them to 256 kps. 2--Speed. As much as I love the iPhone, the lag when opening some apps can be a little annoying, not to mention I would love the 7.2 Mbps 3G. 3--Compass. I didn't really think this was a big deal at first, but having seen it demonstrated by Josh Topulsky at Engadget, I love the way that Google Maps re-orients itself based on the direction you are facing. That would be awesome for time when you are in a city you're not familiar with and cannot figure out which way is up. Thanks TiPb!
