    Which Iphone is better. I have a first gen 2g 16gb but wanted to know if the 3g is a better phone. I saw on mac daily news about a leak of the new Iphone 32gb with faster cpu and faster safari. Should I sell my 2g and get the new one when it comes or keep mine. I know mine is aluminum case where the 3g is plastic. Pro plastic is lite compared to aluminum. The new one is also supposed to have copy and paste . Go to macdailynews.com to read article.

    Everything you mentioned is pure speculation. As for what you need, it depends on you and your own needs.

    Yeah but is the 3g that much faster to be worth the trade up if and when the new one comes.

    The speed from the current 3G and the new one, whenever that is released, will be no different in terms of data speed. But 3G in general is much faster than Edge any day of the week.

    In the end it comes down to how much you value GPS and 3G mostly. If you fine without those things, why bother to upgrade. If you need GPS and 3G - upgrade. As for the next iPhone, nobody knows what will be different so I can't help you there.

    Yes, It is compatible with the iPhone. I just got a Jawbone 2 with NoiseAssassin for my iPhone and it works great!

    I also have the the first gen IPhone. I keep looking at the 3g thinking the speeds would be nice when I am away from wifi. but then I look at the plastic case and I am stopped cold. if the 3g had an aluminium back I would have gladly paid for the upgrade ages ago. If the aluminum back forces me to stay with the slower speed than "So Be It" . and to be Honest...if the next gen phone does not have an aluminium back then Apple will have to pry my first gen phone from my dead body. that is unless the hardware upgrades are just too cool to resist. 3g phone? very easy to resist IMHO

    The aluminum back makes little difference to me, I use a skin and can't see it anyway.

    I completely feel that the 3g is much faster and overall nicer than the original.
