    As it says on the tin...

    I'm due a free upgrade from O2... do I upgrade now or wait to see what Apple bring out later in the year.

    Does anyone have any firm timescales for the new release?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm not fussed either way about jailbreaking.... I have jailbroken my 3G but if I got a 3GS or a 4G then it wouldn't be the end of the world if I had to wait a while to Jailbreak.

    Only apple has firm timetables on what comes out when

    you can wait but it may be a while. And I expect it will be very unlikely it will be jailbreakable

    I am on a 3g, and am waiting... personally I don't really see anything that the 3gs can do that I really NEED.

    Wait for the 4th gen iPhone. WWDC is soon, at least I think it is normally in March. Then new iPhone early summer time frame. It's science. I have a 3G and 3GS isn't worth using my upgrade on, I'm up for one with AT&T. Waiting since my 3G still works fine.

    If you don't NEED something right now I agree it doesn't hurt to wait.

    After using my 3Gs for so long I get really frustrated when I use my daughter's 3G - it feels so s l o w. However, if I were in your position I'd be inclined to wait.

    I've got five phones on my family plan and four of them are iPhones. Yes, we have a rather expensive monthly bill. The one consolation is that the main account holder (me) is eligible for an upgrade every 12 months . . .

    I'll probably get the next gen phone as soon as I'm eligible (July '10) whether I really want it or not. It will certainly be worth more on the street than the upgrade fee.

    If I do decide to keep the new phone, I'm hoping that my current 3Gs will sell for at least the upgrade fee.

    Just want to add that - I agree, I would wait and the 3GS is much faster than the 3G - when i mess around with my friends 3G, it drives me nuts.. s l o w...

    I was in exactly the same position as you and went for the 3GS a couple of weeks ago..although on PAYG and not contract.

    I think things are too much up in the air at the moment..and the ill-informed rumour mill doesn't help. Some people are saying it will be O2 only but personally I doubt that. I'm assuming it will be released in the UK around August time and am hoping it goes to PAYG pretty quickly - hopefully by December.
