I went ahead and sold my iphone a couple days ago, and I am missing it so badly right now. I think that I have been in more than a dozen situations where I would have used my iphone, and I couldn't because I sold it.
So I guess I should tell you why. Seeing as though there are countless rumors going around about the 3g iphone being announced at macworld, I thought that I didn't want to be stuck with an older version that no one will want once the new one comes out. So I sold it to get as much as I could for it before the price dropps and I am stuck with old technology.
Was this a stupid move or was I just scared and sold to early.
I sold it in as new condition being jailbroken and unlocked. It was version 1.1.1. I loved the thing and I really am missing it right now. Someone tell me I did the right thing by selling my baby for the better version. Just a little support from the community... Oh and I replaced it with a nokia 6500 slide. Nothing close to the goodness of the iphone, but good enough to hold me over until the 3g one launches soon... I hope.2.2 pwned!!

i think it was a bit of a brash move.
i mean.....3G is great and all....but edge works just as well.
and honestly....i think putting in all these un-approved third party apps is better than having them in there already. because i like thinking I did something to make my phone better. like customizing a car....or painting a room....carving something out of wood.
I know i got a little off topic there...but thats what it comes down to.
people hate 1st Gen. iphone because it doesn't have GPS, 3G, flash, etc.
alrite i'm done ranting."Somebody turn on the lights...its getting little to dark in here...I can't see you...when I'm dreaming...I can't see you....I can't see you..."

Well, I don;t think that people will not care about the old phones anymore. First it will take a while to crack the 1.1.3 firmware (after all 1.1.2 is yet to be cracked yet) Also, I don;t think edge is 3g anyway so it's not going to be a big deal. I also doubt another version of the phone would be released less than a year before the original release. They generally do a yearly release.

is having 3g that important to you? EDGE is just fine for me...And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix
