    I'm pumped. I'll be up all night either way, it's summer, I'm young. I might not upgrade immediately either and just let everyone go in and test it at first. There isn't that much change though, I'd be more stoked if we could start sending MMS right off the bat.

    On a sidenote, who thinks the upgrade to the 3GS is worth it? I'm considering selling mine, but I'm buying the Camera, and I guess the though of being up-to-date, because I don't use Voice, and why the hell do I need a compass? I feel it might be better to wait for the next gen because this isn't a huge update.

    Version 2.2.1 is still the current version here in sunny Sydney. Damn.
    Same here in Eastern Time.

    I only think it is worth it if you have iPhone 2G and are eligible for upgrade.

    That's true, I bought my iPhone flat out and paid $421 for it, and it looks like it'll be that much again. It might be hard selling an iPhone 3G for $280 w/ case when you can pick one up new for $99. :/

    I can just see a million kids with iPhones now, and I liked feeling a bit special with one. I hope the iPhones don't turn into the new EnV 2's. -_-.

    Its only $99 with a 2 year contract and alot of people do not want that you can still easily get $300 for it. And more if unlocked and jailbroken.

    Really? I was unaware of that. Should I ebay it? I don't mind paying $120. Thanks for the advice Tramain.

    Maybe I'll say "Unlock by request"

    I'm a big dork, and I'll stay up as late as I can. I haven't been this excited about an upgrade in a long while.

    I've never been excited for any kind of software upgrade before. I honestly think that I have turned into a geek.

    I have to get up way too early as it is, but I think I'll get up an hour earlier and hope it's ready.

    Im no developer but i have had the gold master 3.0 since 6/9/09. you can get it on a torrent and command click check for updates in itunes and select the file. it adds some good stuff but overall nothing too exciting. I compared the speed with my girlfriends iphone and its actually a tad slower.

    I could be wrong but where did this midnight release time come from? I see no info on Apples site regarding this. If I remember correctly when 2.2 was released it was like at 10am EST.

    Is the consensus that the update will be released worldwide at 12am US time - give or take?

    I'm in little old Sydney, and one of the papers here yesterday claimed that Apple Australia said it wouldn't be released until tomorrow. I hope they're wrong!
