    I want an iphone because in the last year I've become a Mac-a-holic. I love the vibrant colors they use and the peace of knowing that the iphone is going to work with my iMac (unlike other phones I know of). I am totally stoked at having apps at my fingertips as well as one of the best cell phones on the market (IMO).

    I got my 2g 4gb iPhone the day after they came out. It has been a good phone and I've definitely put it through the ringer several times. I didn't pick up a 3G last year because I had a perfectly good phone, but now that the 3G S is out, it's time to upgrade. The biggest selling point for me is the faster processor, 2x RAM and new graphics chip. I'm looking forward to seeing what games will take advantage of this new power.

    Please give me a 3G S!

    I'm still rocking the original 2G 8GB iPhone. 8GB has been killing me the whole time. I went from a 30GB iPod to this and it would be nice to have that capacity back. The Edge speeds are slow as snot here. I can barely look at a picture in someone's tweet. I need the 3Gs! And finally, I love doing on the spot spur of the moment video. As it is, I have to carry a separate device for that. It would be so awesome to have it all in one in the iPhone 3Gs!
    Please pick me to win!!!

    HI,

    I would love to win the upgrade to the 3Gs for the video capability in the phone. I am a music teacher and I have started to use twitter as a way to further educate my students during the week after their lessons. I would love to be able to add to that by putting video clips on the twitter posts directed towards my students I know needed help on the material that week so they can use my video clips as a guide while working the rest of the week on the stuff they didn't totally grasp during their lesson..With the 3Gs video and editing capability I would be able to make that a realization now as opposed to a year from now when I can upgrade...Hopefully I can win this and in doing so help further educate my students through video and ironically using the power the of Twitter...Thanks

    I have the original iPhone 2G. I am planning to upgrade to the new iPhone 3GS for it's three main features (IMHO) (1) Compass+Maps (excellent for an architect on site visits), (2) Nike+ support and (3) 3 MP camera with video capability

    I've recently been blessed with becoming a father. Unfortunately, I live in a different country than all of my relatives, including my parents and siblings.

    The iPhone 3GS would enable me not just to share still pictures, but to actually show her grandparents (with video) how my month-old daughter smiles. It would not only mean the world to me, but be priceless for them.

    The #1 reason I want to upgrade from my iPhone 2G is because I didn't upgrade last year...and the GPS-compass-better camera-video recording feature that I don't have.

    I work in the live events department at my company and all of my employees have iPhones which do wonders for what we do with concerts since we're always on the road. Everything from taking video/pictures, to GPS with the blue dot on Google Maps, to finding the closest restaurant QUICKLY (the EDGE network is killing me!). Quite frankly, I'm very tired of my Blackberry and seeing how I use a mac for all my work, it'd be nice to finally sync up to my mobile device for once...

    Thanks for all you do!

    It's all about the speed for me. I would love to have everything snappier. Also, the compass feature integrated with Maps and an auto-focus camera sound like a worthwhile upgrade.

    Every since Steve announced the iPhone, I have been determined to learn as much as I can about it. I secretly watched the keynotes at work; I did reports on the iPhone in school; I of course went to the stores to play with the iPhone when it arrived. I was and still am a tad bit obsessed. Over the last three years, I tried to get one of these beloved phones, but AT&T always got in the way, until yesterday. I am on a family plan that is on a business plan, which the original iPhone did not support. Foiled there. When the iPhone 3G came along, I wasn't eligible to upgrade, again thank you AT&T. I am not up for upgrade until September 2009, until yesterday when AT&T decided to cave (thank you!) and let everyone who can renew in the next 3 months, renew early. Everything is finally falling into place. My roommate got an iPhone in March and it just kills me. The iPhone is an incredible device, and I feel like half the people who have one, don't use it correctly! People today don't care to learn how their tech devices work, thus when something goes wrong, they freak. I am constantly sending emails to my roommate, giving her tips and apps to download. Many of my friends assume I have an iPhone already, because I know everything about it. It's like there are two parts of me that don't connect properly. It's a person who is an expert in Chinese culture, but never been to China. It doesn't work. So I guess that is what I'm trying to get across. Help me fit those two pieces of my life together. If this doesn't work out, I'll be fine. The iPhone will come to me in other ways, but I thought I'd give it a shot!

    When I was little, my family was poor. I used to go to school in hand me down clothes, my mother's car was an ancient beat-down piece of crap, we went days without eating. Needless to say, I would get made fun of and picked on by all my school mates. When I grew up, I vowed never to be like that again. So ever since, I have been obsessed with wearing the best clothes, having the best and newest technology, never going hungry again.

    Unfortunately, because of the current economic state of the country, I once again find myself struggling to save up pennies in order to pay the rent. As much as I would kill to have the iPhone 3G[s], there is no way I can afford it because of AT&T's contract. Even though I bought my 3G the day it was released, I would have to wait until March to upgrade. I can't wait that long, tipb!! Please, please, please pick me. Do it for that little boy wearing his cousin's members only jacket every day for two years.

    I want to upgrade to the iPhone 3G S because it is, by far and away, and, some minor issues aside, the overall best smartphone on the market. It has excellent email capabilities and the absolutely best browser of any smartphone. If I were willing to settle for second best, I'd get a BlackBerry. I'm not!

    I'm upgrading to the new iPhone because I'm still using my original 2G 8gb that I bought on the day it launched two years ago. Oh, and because my home and lock buttons have to be pressed approximately 10-12 times for it to register once. That's pretty annoying, to say the least.

    Cheers everyone, see you around

    I would have said compass, but that's already been said. But the thing that we need the most from the 3G S (besides a faster processor, more memory, and the like) is the Battery Percentage Indicator that is only enabled on the 3G S.

    I'm a student currently in my last year of high school, so my pockets aren't exactly stuffed with cash. I have three part-time jobs and pay for virtually everything I buy, including things like my monthly cellphone bill. I saved up for a few months to finally get the iPhone 3G at the end of last summer and was very happy with it.

    I am generally an extremely organized person and relied very heavily on the built in PIM applications as well as third party ones such as Appigo's ToDo to keep track of every single little errand I have to run or e-mail I have to send later (being a student in high school, I could never afford a data plan and relied on Wi-Fi at school and at home).

    Everything was going great until a Thursday afternoon near the beginning of May (2009). I was taking the subway home at 5pm (please note this is typically rush hour) and got off at my stop as I do every day. As I was taking the escalator up from the platform back to street level, my iPhone was wrenched from my hand by one of five guys who then pushed me around a bit, threatened me, implying they had a gun on them, and ran off. Police reports have been filed and the security cameras at the station have been checked but it's been over a month so I'm very doubtful I will get it back.

    I want a new iPhone 3GS not only because its an amazing smartphone but also because I no longer have access to the organizational tools like Appigo's ToDo (they are working on one for the BlackBerry but it won't be released for some time, and I don't like BlackBerries that much anyway) and going off to University next year, I really need to be able to keep track of all the little things I need to do. It also doesn't help that because smartphone upgrades are every 2 years, if I wanted the 3GS I would have to pay the contract-free price for it or wait until next year because of Rogers' new policy. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed they make a similar announcement to AT&T.

    The more I use my current 16GB iPhone 3G and am seriously running out of storage space for music, videos, photos etc.
    Before getting an iPhone I was an avid Blackberry user and STILL AM for one reason: VIDEO capabilities. Carrying 2 devices has branded me the nickname "Gadget Girl".
    I'd love the new smudge proof screen because I am constantly wiping mine with LCD screen wipes...yeah I'm a teeny itsy bit of a neat freak. The compass would definitely come in handy due to me using the map feature very frequently as I live in a metro area and can get turned around quite easily. I hate having to have all of my music split across a 30GB 5th gen Video iPod and my iPhone as I am frequently listening to music to drown out the sounds of annoying ppl (airport, work, airplane etc)
    I've seriously become addicted to Peggle and Sims 3!! The faster iPhone would help in adding to my de-stress time that I need as a single mother because I'd hate to have to take away from my twin 11 yr olds summer fun because I squeezed into the budget a much needed device.

    I've never had an iPhone but love the touch screen features. Right now I'm sporting the LG Vu. What pains me is not being able to put my music on there because it's all on iTunes. Do you know how long it took me to build up my library? It would be totally BOSS (love the retro slang, right?) if I could combine my iPod (which is currently a Nano) and my touch screen phone. Just in time for my Father's Day present...my kids would love you for it, too!
