    Purchase price is nothing compared to contract price. $150 is not a big difference when the contract costs the same all year round no matter what phone you pick. I'd go with iPhone 4 if I were you.
    If you were putting it all down at once, then yes, there is not much of a different between $2300 and $2150.

    However, for some people, paying the one time cost of $50 or $200 can be factor.

    I bought my wife a refurbished 3GS from the AT&T store for $19.99. At that price she couldn't resist and she loves it.

    Can you give me an example of all these new apps?
    I'll ask a different way, will the 3GS be updated to iOS 5? I got out my wifes Gen 1 iPod Touch and almost every app I tried to download was denied because it doesn't have iOS 4. With the phone being two years old now and thinking forward two years it's a thought. I am new to Apple and asking a genuine question, I don't know how long they support the phones to new OS's.

    worth getting at this point in the game? Me and the wife are considering the switch...the only reason we're considering the 3GS is that $50 bucks is a hell of a deal.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
    I wouldn't buy it, unless you are short on money.

    I have a 3GS still, that I purchased in March 2010. So I'm only 13 months into my contract, so I'm not looking to upgrade yet. The 4 has a beautiful screen, but honestly the 3GS does most of what the 4 does (such as multitasking, wallpapers, etc), so it did not justify the cost for me at this time. Bear in mind, the 3GS is only available as a 8GB phone--if your media/app needs are beyond 8GB, don't do it. For me, I had to get the 32GB model, because of my massive movie and music collection. I have 80GB just in music. If there was a 64GB iPhone 4 I would have probably taken the plunge. I'm waiting for 64GB of space or something much more compelling before taking the jump. I do believe the iOS 5.0 will support the 3GS, although the 3GS would not be able to do everything that it can do with iOS 4.x. History shows that the iPhone 3G could do iOS 4, but at a much reduced functionality.

    Based on your comments, I think the 3GS would be a great purchase for you both.

    I apologize for the outburst. I should have reported the offending post. I realize that you all have other priorities. Didn't see this reply until 5/7, so that is why it took so long to respond.

    It's worth the price. But not renewing a contract.
    I completely agree with this!! Could not have put it better myself.
