I went with my girlfriend to look at getting an iphone. There was the original iphone 8GB 3G, which she could get for around £35 a month which seemed very resonable. The 2nd version, the iphone 16GB 3GS, only became free at around £50 a month, so that was well out of our price range, so we settled for that.
Luckily, when they went out back to get us one, they told us they had ran out as they no longer made them as a new one was coming out! We've now been told that the 16GB 3GS, which was too expensive yesterday, will now probably drop into our price range in a few days as this new one hits the shelves.
It annoys me that we found this out by chance, if they would have had the old one in stock, she would have been stuck with a new contract but a 3rd generation phone. As it is, in a few weeks we should hopefully be getting the 3GS.
As for this new one, it looks impressive and I would love to own one, but money is required to go elsewhere at the moment
Depends on what offers (if any) O2 give to people on an exsisting contract, I currently have a year to run on my exsisting contrat. I may be convinced to sell my 3GS and buy the new 4G handset if, when I get to play with the new model, I feel I really want it.
Looks great though, the improved battery life and glass backing (as the current plastic backing scratches as soon as you look at it).
