    I had ordered a iphone4 on the AT&T website. It was on backorder with no clue as to when it would come. I decided to just cancel order and get 3gs instead. I am very happy with my decision. This is my first iPhone and I love it. I don't miss my blackberry at all. Once all the kinks are worked out of os4, I will update.

    What kinks are you referring to in iOS4 anyways?

    Also, sorry to hear you gave up, but the 3GS is
    still a very good device. If I were you, I would
    have pre-ordered through Apple. Seems to be
    faster than ordering through AT&T at times.

    Pro, return that thing and get a 4. Call an apple store and get on the waiting list. You will have it within a week.

    Will I hope you enjoy your new iPhone.

    If within 30 days you decide you want to upgrade, take it back to AT&T or Apple (wherever you bought it) and exchange it for the iPhone 4. Otherwise, you still have an amazing phone!

    I too suggest you return the 3gs and just wait alittle for the ip4 because it is so worth it. And with the new phone comes bigger and greater tech...

    the 3gs is a good phone and my girlfriend has it, but still the ip4 blows it away. I would recommend you return it and just wait for the ip4

    I agree with everyone. The 3GS is a great device but it's dated. I just hope you got the new 3GS that is returnable. If you got te 16 or 32 gb model you are stuck. The iPhone 4 is worth the wait and the extra 100 bucks.

    I agree with the rest. I was an impatient, but determined, woman. One day, I called almost every retailer I could find that sells it. No one had it or even know when they would get more in. So I ended up going to the Apple store & getting on the waiting list. Had it a week later. iP4 is really worth the wait!!

    They're all returnable. They cannot deny you the 30 day exchange policy unless the phone is in bad condition.

    Here's the exact wording from AT&T return policy: Closeout Equipment cannot be exchanged under this policy. Close Out equipment must be returned if service is being canceled.

    So it cant be exchanged for another device. You can return it but would have to activate an old phone in the mean time. I know Verizon has a three day wait period to reset your upgrade.

    Att did this to discourage people from upgrading to the 3GS to turn around and exchange it for an iPhone 4 later.
