    The speed difference is remarkable. You can't not notice it. Having video was reason enough for me. Voice control is also nice.

    Is it really?

    I just switched over from the BB Storm and I was so lookin forward to getting a phone that actually WORKED that I didn't take the time to compare the 3G and 3Gs.

    But I'm kind of missing MMS so I might go for that reason alone, even though it will be on #G by the end of the summer.

    I won't be upgrading, I had a play with the 3Gs in the apple store and the speed was definitely noticeable. Much faster at opening apps etc, but that didn't bother me too much, my time doesn't carry such a high price tag and a 24 month contract!
    Lol excellent point!

    It was and still is more than worth it for me. I hate waiting for some silly page to take 30-45 seconds to load or for a game to load. Usually by the time it loads I have already lost interest. And really it's not much more expensive than a blackberry

    Dani,

    If you haven't watched TiPB's original video comparison of the two devices, do it. Someone else in the forums also posted his own comparison video. It used to take so long for Peggle to open that I could listen to the entire theme song play through, and read all the cute little sayings. Now I read two before the ball drops and it's ready for play.

    I had the iPhone 2G so the 3GS is a huge step up. It's much much faster, sleeker, and I love the new screen.

    It was soooo worth the money in my opinion just for the speed alone. My dad has a 3G & I tested the 3G vs. 3Gs and like Apple said the 3Gs is 2x FASTER! I really like having the ability to shoot video as well. The trimming option is awesome and it will even get better with 3.1. So yes again it was worth the $$$

    My take on the 3G[S] I upgraded from a Black 16GB 3G to a White 32GB 3G[S] my 3G sold at auction end for $412+shipping. I paid the "upgrade" price for my phone, So all in all it cost me was $148, having to pay the unsubsidized tax was almost as much as the upgrade. Im happy I did it. I love the new phone. Its way faster. And buying this one early, we are more likely to get AT&T to do the same thing next year as they did this year with the early adopters, buying the new one before Sept 30th and getting the subsidized price. So next year when the new one comes out. Hopefully they will offer the same deal.

    I dont really care about the 2 year contract. I mean I need a phone anyway and AT&T doesnt lose exclusitivity for a few more years. So Im here for the duration. I rarely have voice or data issues.

    So I've been trying Apple's MobileMe service the last month and it's been GREAT UNTIL TONIGHT, when every single one of my business AND personal contacts on not only my iPhone, but also my Powerbook vanished into thin air. Awesome. Online searches not helping much...anyone have this happen and know how to fix?

    As much as I miss my blackberry, I'm not disappointed with my 3GS at all. I am getting a blackberry 9700 though. I'm interested to see which one I'll use the most...

    I attempted to switch to the Droid because Verizon has better/more consistent coverage in my area, but I guess the iPhone spoiled me...the Droid is simply too much work and not extremely intuitive...but that's just me. I'm back to my iPhone.

    My 3G recently broke and I bought a 3Gs and I'm not really disappointed with the features... I think 4.0 will cover what it's lacking.
