    They could put an aluminium back on the 3G/3GS - it would be fine if you didn't actually want a signal....

    I had no signal issues with the original iPhone. I had volume issues. It was a very quiet phone even with the volume maxed out. The signal hoopla is crap. They switched to plastic because it is cheaper.

    The original iPhone had a plastic piece over the 2G aerial.
    The 3G and 3GS also have a 3G aerial as well as the 2G aerial. If the back was metal you would have no signal. If the back had the same amount of plastic as the 2G you would have 2G signal only.
    With a plastic back you get 2G and 3G signal.
    Your choice.

    My choice lays with doubling the thickness of the phone so I can free myself from the dependency of an electrical outlet for a day or two

    Why on earth is apple so obsessed with size. I would gladly have the iPhone twice as thick with a decent battery that could be removed/replaced with ease. It could still hold all the style and shape of the current model.

    I would not like the iPhone to be thicker - I've had enough of carrying round bricks. I would prefer more battery life but not at the expense of size.
    For me the iPhone is almost the perfect form.

    I totally agree..This is utter crap! However, if any of the above is confirmed, and there's nothing that really qualifies as A+, then I'll have used my last iphone when my contract runs out...

    if these photos are true...my biggest disappointment would be no front facing camera for an iChat type thing other than that the phone will probably still be way better than that silly ol 3GS thats why i waited haha

    That little mirrored button above the speaker is obvious. You press it in when on the phone with someone and it makes them speak in Chipmunk.

    How did you guys not guess that already?

    Don't be silly.

    It's a mirror so it makes them speak backwards.

    Ahh. True. However, the 64gb will come with backwards-Chipmunk voice. Or is that for the 5G?

    Here's what Apple will do with the 4G.
    32 gb will be available in your choice of black or white, the 64 gb will be an aluminum unibody. 32 gb will be 199 with a contract and the unibody 64 gb will be 299. I mean, that makes sense considering how Apple has been rolling out their products. The only thing is, they would have to show me a phone that is wayy better than any phone out there in order for me to drop the cash for a 4g...good battery life is a must lol

    Again that is just my thoughts
