Thread: 2g vs 3g
09-22-2008, 10:49 AM #12g vs 3g
I know that this questions was asked already, but I couldn't find the thread that talks about this. If there is a thread out there, please post it to one.
I have a 2g iphone and was wondering other than the 3G network what are the reasons to migrate to a 3g phone.
I know the 3g has GPS, but the locate me feature on the 2g one is pretty good.
One question I have to ask is if the processor is the same or does it actually process data and run applications faster.
thanks for any responses.

processor is the same FWIK...
Pros of 3G:
-Because of GPS, some apps from appStore with have added functionality for use with GPS
-External Speaker is Louder(Big plus in my book)
-Headphone jack is not recessed like 2G, so now you dont need to use iPod approved headsets or headset adapter jacks
-Supposedly better quality multitouch screen
-Choice of White or Black iPhone
-Sleek new design
Thats really it I think
-Shorter battery life(with my experience)
-No Software unlock as of yet
NOTE: there are hardware unlocks via sim adapters, but they are not 100% reliable... I use one to get my 3G on Tmobile USA and have had a decent experience, but little issues here and there keep me from totally falling in love with it.

I would also have to use a sim adapter to unlock the phone since I am also with T-Mobile. So are you getting 3g connections with your 3g iphone using the sim adapter?
It seems like the big plus of the new 3g phone is the GPS. I really don't use the external speaker too much, so that is not as a big deal. I was hoping that it would run the application faster due to a better processor, but it sounds like everything is pretty much the same.

to me - simply 3g speeds. watch video/ stream radio or my homelibrary (via simplify media) + download songs etc etc. at very, very fast speeds.
gps is handy, but no real use until turn by turn nav comesThe Original Autobot of MMiJesus couldn't turn into a fire engine
