    I'll only get it if apple doesn't try to advertise mms as the next big thing on the new one. . At this rate we'll be on par with the n95 by about iphone 5.

    It would have to be a big step forward. MMS nice, buts thats just software.

    As far as a device, I'd like to see it the size of the Ipod Touch, better speakers, better battery, better camera (or 2, video conferencing anyone).

    Anyways, really...what could they do but improve on whats already there (not that it couldnt use it).

    I think the device would be much better with some nice software improvements.

    The first one is still the highest demand, still the toughest one, and still is the most reliable. Since they went all out on quality for the first one and started going to cheaper parts on the next, I don't see ANY iPhone replacing my first gen for a long time. Major hardware changes will have to take place.

    I've skipped a generation. The 3G doesn't cut it for me. 3G and GPS and nothing else isn't a fair trade-off for poor build quality, which in my opinion is what the 3G is all about. When I see an iPhone 3G, all I think is- what a mass produced, nasty piece of garbage (sorry you 3G owners). Phones like the Nokia N96 and Samsung Omnia are more expensive, but they practically glow quality compared to the 3G. I was extremely close to buying one in the 3rd week of release, but when I saw all these threads pop up about cracks, poor reception and poor battery life, I pulled out straight away. The apparently cheap price tag (100/$200) is only a front for a poor, inproportianate contract (for O2 anyway), and I just get angry when I see iPhone 3G adverts. So here I am, iPhone-less, waiting for an iPhone that won't have so many problems!

    I have the first generation and 3G.... all I know is after moving up to the 3G and seeing what it is like I won't be the first one to get one next year....

    Glad I was not one to sell my first generation..... and won't sell it either..... I can not imagine them coming out with one next year..... they would really have to do a lot to the phone to get the SMART people to buy one next year.....

    They got to fix the 3G first before thinking about another one!

    and im planing on buying a n95 8gb
    il still use my iphone as an ipod touch but i want a phone that: has mms, decent camera, real gps(voice navigation) two camera's, copy paste, doesn't lock up and has a boot time under 30 seconds.

    What happened if i had my phone off one day i needed to ring the ambulance thats a 5 min w8 to start up and then there's a 80% chance that inteliscreen will lock it up and il need to hard reset

    also like dale said the faster speeds and gps doesn't cut it. also i prefer a *metal* back that doesn't crack

    So far i'm fairly content withe the 3G. im an internet and email junkie and cant be without it and the 3G speed (when it works) is so much better than Edge. I find i can always make things work by toggling airplane mode but it is getting old and annoying.

    My oldest and I both had 2G iphones and then got 3G's. I had been planning on selling the 2G's but the younger borother bought his older brothers and I gave mine to my husband as i was getting ready to list it. he finally stopped teasing me and decided he would like one too.

    I miss the bulletproof reliability of the old 2G but if I keep 3G off unless Im on Safari or downloading mail, i dont have too many issues. That is until yesterday.

    I was on a conversation and my bluetooth set's battery died. Somehow my call got disconnected and well i called theperson back and thought all was well. However, later on i was not able to login with Win SCP despite wifi showing as connected. i could not open Safari, not on wifi, not on 3G, not on Edge. I toggled airplane mode and got my Safari back but still could not SCP. I had the idea to reinstall OpenSSH and Open SSL and finally, WinSCP recognized the phone. Very odd.

    Still, overall, i personally like the look of the 3G and menus and apps seem to work more smoothly and not lag like they did on the 2G when it had many apps installed. So to answer the original question, it depends. If it proves to have more seemless network switching, probably.

    I gave my 2G to my brother so I'm getting the 3G in a few days. The only thing I'm worried about is the buggy OS with apps crashing and app store not working properly time to time so is the software bad? like is it worse than the 2G?

    Ive skipped the 3g for all the reasons already mentioned above. I am looking forward to the next iphone but there better be some new/improved features added. I sure as heck won't be buying it as soon as it is released. I love my 1st gen and can't stand all these ppl who think they are so savvy with their new 3g iphone (in Canada) that is really no different from my 2g that I've had for over a year. To top it off they're not jailbroken. They ask how do you make it look like that?!? ***** posers!

    If Apple can get the contract with AT&T dumped, yes I would purchase a new model, IF they go back to top notch quality (which I think they would if AT&T's hands werent in the development). It will obviously utilize the 3G network and have a little more capability. If the new phone has awesome new features but cannot be used on anything but AT&T, I will not buy it.

    I skipped the 3G for obvious reasons including the inability to use TMo's 3G network even when it came available. I almost considered paying an early out and signed up with AT&T just to get one. I dont have wifi at work so the thought of a blazing speed cell network was appealing. Then came the cracks, the reception, the extra security instead of higher build quality. Im not one that is basing my opinion on the Plastic casing I understand its purpose and I know why its being used in lieu of a metal back.
    So again my dis-interest in having AT&T is fueled even more.
    Surely Apple is recognizing that it is actually hurting their business by having AT&T and will try to do something about it.

    I was reading an article ( i dont know if Im allowed to link here) that cited a few articles from the New York Times and USA Today about what kind of timeframe the contract with AT&T is valid for. Initially it was stated 2 years now reports its 5. The reasoning as stated in these articles, Apple says that Cingular is the Biggest and Best Network in the US. Certainly the biggest, but the best? So unless you are french, until Apple drops AT&T dont count on any progress.

    i wouldnt get the n95 if i were you man. i had the n95 and the n95 US 3G version and its definately a phone that looks better on paper than in real life. i had about 6 or 7 that had to be sent back due to the high pitching noise common on n95s.
    i honestly hated using it other than the decent camera on it. it is slow at most times due to apps staying open because to exit them fully you need to hit option and then exit or else itll stay open. if you do get it be ready for a semi-enjoyable phone. go for the n96 if you are determined because its a way better shape and performance and almost the same as the n95 8gig

    I most likely will. I have been selling back my iPhones on eBay, and paid <$100 for a new one because of it.

    [RANT]
    So many people whine about iPhone MMS, but does it get you anywhere? No! My gawd, please stop! Everyone and their brother knows that the iPhone doesn't have MMS, and unless you got the original 1G (That's right 1G not 2G, 2g implies second generation, which the current iPhone is) you would know that. A member put it this way: Do not get a device hoping for an update, and that is SO true. The same goes for Copy and Paste, Flash, etc...
    [/RANT]

    I apologize in advance for what was said above, it's just that these stinkin' members clog up the news forums and basically thread jack anything related to firmware with this crap. It's been said, so lets move on.

    Wait what G are we talking about? the first generation iPhone is 2.5G, and the second generation is 3G isn't it? We should just call them the 2.5G iPhone G1 and the 3G iPhone G2, lol.

    My phone has been working very well. I still have my 1st Gen phone, but the 3G is a lot better. Just for sound quality alone. The audible on the 1st Gen is crap.

    I have been with AT&T since before they sold to Cingular and they have always been a great network to be on. My 3G service at home is flawless.

    So will I go for the 3rd Gen phone? Absolutely.

    I would purchase a new phone every time nokia released a new N-series or Motorola updated the razr or HTC released something new, it became an expensive habit and addiction. With the iPhone, I've never veered to change it because while it has flaws, its pros heavily outweigh the cons.
