    The day I see a pink iPhone is the day I stop buying them...
    What?!?! If it's still the same awesome iPhone but has pink as an available color, you won't use an iPhone anymore?? Just don't get pink!!

    If Apple releases a new iPhone this summer and if Rogers allows to upgrade, then yes, I'll switch. Unless it's just more memory but I seriously doubt that they would bring a new SKU in just for 32GB phones. I basically see a non-crappy camera in my near future

    BA,

    Yes, I'll be buying one. My Generation 1 is getting a bit long in the tooth and 3G has finally come to my hometown. I'd like more business/road warrior functionality. Maybe it'll be there.....

    YES! i will be purchasing the new iPhone this summer, probably regardless of the update because i will be coming off the 2G iPhone. I think most 2G owners will feel compelled to upgrade to finally take advantage of the 3G/ GPS and not be worried of purchasing on the cusp of a new device coming. So i will be there for sure!

    unless its a "nano", which i doubt it would be, and i think its the stupidest idea anyways

    What if the Pre is a giant let down? Then what?
    I really doubt it will be. It's an iphone with the missing features as well as new ones and a real kb. Has the webkit browser, capacitive screen, multitouch, etc. The only thing i'll be missing are the apps but then again, the few useful apps on iphone are likely to be over on the Pre. Plus you know the iphone won't add multitasking, offer synergy or handle notifications the way the Pre does.

    For multitasking, the iphone will need totally new hardware, upgraded OS and wouldn't be compatible with older iphones. Not to mention it would risk not having such a simple UI that is so appealing to its target market.

    Combine that with saving 70 or so a month on a cheaper unlimited plan that offers better speed and coverage (for me) as well as much fewer dropped calls and its kind of a nobrainer.

    I seriously like the iphone as much as anyone, but the party is coming to an end for AT&T and its price gouging.

    You're going to possibly let $150-$200 get in your way of upgrading? I say possibly because I feel that current iPhone owners will be able to get the upgrade price and sign another 2 year contract. Could be wrong though... only time will tell.

    Should'nt you have voted not sure yet?
    If there is some serious upgrades on the hardware, I would throw 200 towards a new iphone (if they did a special upgrade). A different color and more storage space would not be enough to make me shell out the cash though...

    I agree - the core functionality of the Pre will be there - calling (yes, some of us actually use these devices for CALLS! Go figure!), browsing, messaging, PIM, etc. I am sure some good apps will follow. While I like the iPhone too, I just can not give up good service and ATT does not offer me good service. Maybe the new one will be better and the network will improve - who knows at this point.

    As for apps - while I like the iPhone and appreciate the app store, I think it is a little over blown as a competitive advantage - app stores are coming for all platforms AND most of the iPhone apps are crap.

    So a Pre for me in the short term and then re-evaluate later this year.

    Great post.

    I really hope the Pre kicks off well, I would really like to see some healthy competition to the iPhone.

    And let's say the Pre is released in the next couple months, I hope Apple is waiting in the darkness until June with that Pre/iPhone 3G killer!

    I voted YES. I have wanted an iPhone since the first one was released and now that my T-Mobile contract has run dry just this past month I am on stand-by at least until June/July (WWDC) to see what, if anything, is next.

    But I'm keeping expectations low with high hopes. No need to set yourself up for dissapointment, ya know.

    Only 96 days until June 1st! Imagine all the speculation that will have been out by then! LoL, I love it!

    The Pre is not Palms saving grace - promise you that, but that's a whole other thread. http://forum.theiphoneblog.com/smart...alm-pre-6.html

    How much are you paying for your iPhone plan? The data plan is only $30. You must have an expensive text and voice plan.

    Hang around a bit buddy, or better yet click back a couple pages or look at some other sites to see everyone's "Wants" and all.

    I will without a doubt be buying the new iphone when it is released. When you consider the $500 AT&T deposit I will be getting back in June (gotta love opening a new contract as an 18 year old!) so I will have solid chunk of expendable cash coming to me right on time. On top of the screen of my 3G has been cracked for a long time, and it will most likely be about the same price for the new one when it comes out as it would be for me to swap out my current now. I think from here on out I'll be buying a new iphone once a year. Can't imagine having anything else.

    What is this deposit you are talking about? I'm 20 and wouldn't mind getting off my parents plan if there is $500 involved! -lol

    If you have no credit history, they charge a deposit. Industry standard stuff.

    I would get one if they upgrade the hard drive. I need a minimum of 32GB.

    I'm not sure if they're a little more strict now. But when I turned 18 (almost 6 years ago), I called AT&T and had them transfer the account holder name to my name for my phone number only. They asked for my social security number and what not, but did not require a deposit. I had been on my parents' plan for 2 years. I know they were taking deposits from new customers without a credit history back then, but they didn't require one from me.

    Here I go again - just got a black 16gb at BB for $200. If it lasts past 30 days, I expect I'll trade for the new one in August/Sept (assuming July rollout) once the "rush" dies down.

    The day I turned 18 (25 now), I walked into an ATT Store (might have been Cingular at the time) and signed a contract with no deposit required. Unless you have butchered credit, I dont think one will have to throw down 500 bucks. Thats a lot.

    As for getting the next iPhone. No. I wont. I got mine yesterday. I will probably wait. And of course everyone has an Apple store friend and my Apple store friend is pretty sure that there will be no iPhone this year and just a huge software update
