    Doesn't make a difference either way. You'll pay full price for the iPhone whether you buy it outright or whether you buy it subsidized with a contract (hence ECF charges). Or you can wait months for the price to come down, but usually only after an even newer version of the iPhone comes out.

    Basically saying what we ALL know. People that buy cutting edge technology pay more than those who wait.

    It appears to have the same...speakers, the same microphone... -Erica Sadun. Uhhhh, that right there says she doesnt have her facts straight. I watched the WWDC video, and Steve himself said it had new and better speakers and mic. I also looked it up, making sure I didnt just imagine this. Better audio: At the launch of the 3G iPhone Steven Jobs said the iPhone would have much improved audio, and now we know why the 3G iPhone has a new microphone and speakers. -http://http://www.smartcompany.com.a...G-iPhone-.html

    Exactly. Screw 3G at this point for me, im not seeing any REAL reason to update. 2.0 is where its at.

    It all comes down to is 3g and gps truely important because ur not only gonna pay alot /2 year contract or 600$/ but it is a bigger phone and it doesn't seem worth it ,edge iPhones still have wifi and if u live somewhere like Houston or L.A gps isn't that great (compared to geo location)

    I have to agree that what I'm really excited about is 2.0 and I wasn't planning on buying an iphone 3g on friday... but since my iphone fell out of my f-ing pocket in a cab last friday and all attempts to locate it have come up short.... yeah...

    The audio improvements have also been confirmed by a trio of reviews.
