    I'm looking to buy an iPhone, but can't decide between the 2G and the 3G. Obviously the 3G is better, but I'm going to activate it on T-Mobile so I would have to buy it on eBay, and buying it off there, a 2G is around $200-$300, while the 3G is around $500-$600. Is it worth double the price of the 2G?
    Basically, on T-Mobile, will there be a big enough advantage between the two iPhones for me to cough up the extra ~$300 for the 3G?

    I don't have an iphone, but i would say no.

    If you want to have faster web browsing and mail and stuff like that faster, than cough up the extra 300....

    Besides, their isen't 3G everywhere, but their is mostly always cellular signal.

    Once again, i don't have an iPhone, but thats my personal opinion.

    If I have a 2G I can still go on the internet anywhere, right?

    No. There is no infrastructure to provide that to the iPod Touch 2G.
