    Default Stupid Move, or...
    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.
    y'know?

    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.

    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

    Too true. I recently saw a Demo (think it was on Youtube) comparing screen loading and refreshing between an iPhone (Edge) and a Nokia (using 3G). The iPhone still loaded the screens faster in Safari than its Nokia counterpart.
