    3G technologies enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. Services include wide-area wireless voice telephony, video calls, and broadband wireless data, all in a mobile environment. Additional features also include HSPA data transmission capabilities able to deliver speeds up to 14.4Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8Mbit/s on the uplink. -wikipedia

    nobody really knows what exactly will 3g iphone have. there are rumors that camera will be 5mpixels and build in gps. but 3g also means video mobile conversation in areas with 3g. so u call someone with 3g phone to 3g phone and you can see each other becouse of 2nd camera located on front of the phone.yeah and 3g network is much much faster then edge so internet should be pretty nice with it. but also much more expensive...but those speed from wikipedia are a bit avershot i think. maybe somewhere in japan but deffo not in usa.my cable has those speeds here lol. i wish my phone has that as well lol

    Think they said the 3G would be thicker, not thinner.

    Because to use 3G, you must have different hardware. the hardware we have can only pick up Edge services.
