I'll update every year until I can't afford it. Paid $500 for my 3GS and ditched my 3G. Already saving up another $500 for the next iPhone.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

sounds interesting despite apple saying new models would be defined by software not hardwareThis is getting a lil' ridiculous...

I don't know about a significant hardware change. I wanna see a Verizon iPhone.
Maybe a better battery, 64GB.

Hey ROTA, why would you even consider ANDROID...they hardly have any APPS?!
And as we all know, jailbreaking, APPS availability (Itunes or CYDIA), and the functionality of the iphone are why we buy it!

An Apple Exec stated that their plans are to release a new model once a year so the fact that they are testing a new model shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.
Is the model number significant? It suggests a major hardware change (snapdragon?) but the iPhone seems to evolve rather than revolutionise.
The 3GS was a great upgrade for 2G owners but probably not worth 3G owners upgrading (especially those on 2 year contracts). I expect the next one to be tempting enough for 3G users to stay with the iPhone but not so good that 3GS owners are p!ssed off.
Now we have another 7 months of people saying what they want from the new iPhone (maybe we should just cut and paste from the 3GS speculation)only for most of the rumours to prove unfounded.
Unless something changes dramatically between then and now though, the 4th Gen will probably be my next phone.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Hollow0 that's the early upgrade price. $499 plus tax. Unsubbed tax. Mine was $560. Had all the iPhones and I'll get this one too. Good thing about buying them as soon as they come out. Is last year AT&T let the early adoptors from the year before buy them at the subsidized price. So this year I made sure I bought it before sept 30. They will offer the same thing for this phone. And I will get it for the subsidized price. Even
though my 3G[S] will only be a year old.

Let's just hope they don't make it impossible to jailbreak. I'll wait to buy one until I know that it can be jailbroken. If it takes too long to jailbreak, I'll probably switch to Android. I love how they make it so easy to install custom apps and they don't fight open source development.
I still love my iPhone, but I'm getting tired of Apple and their Nazi-esque chokehold on what the phone can "officially" do. In my opinion, without SBSettings, QuickReply and Winterboard the iPhone is only "okay". It's the Cydia and Rock apps that make it so great, and if they take those away then I'm switching to Android and giving Apple the middle finger as I walk away.

The iPhone can't support a faster processor with the current state that the battery is in. Double the thickness of the phone and put a real battery in it.
I am sticking with the 3GS as it is already jailbroken and is very fast. The only way I am upgrading is if they make a dramatic change in the OS that is only supported on the new phone(this is where they will get us).

Def waiting to upgrade till this summer. Hopefully a multi-core processor with more ram for multi tasking.

Android is nice but there's no way i can downgrade to an Android OS after using the iPhone lol. Like one user said we have jailbreak and that works just fine with all the different enhancements. It's just not the same on Android despite all the craze of their little widgets screens...which they need cuz they max out at 3 pages.. and multitasking..which is offered with jailbreak..so what is it in Android? Open developement? I've seen nothing improve with their OS.. only people downloading ROMS. Yeah that's fun... >.>
ehh just my 2 cents.

I would not even consider upgrading to a new generation iphone unless a jailbreak comes out for it (if a jailbreak comes out for it that is). Apple is too restrictive with how they let there software is used. Just being able to run programs in the background is a must for me! And tethering? Love tethering especially when i am on an 8 Hour watch at work with nothing better to do than answer an emegency phone! Plus i just bought a 3gs 2 months ago. So no UPGRADE for me either way!
