    Ok, long story short...i have 3gs my wife does not....

    both of our etf's are $125.

    I figure sell my 3gs now for $400 ish... within the next few days because the etf goes up June 1st...

    Then go into walmart say last day of May buy my wife and I 3gs's then when 4g comes out turn around and sell and take the 175 etf and get two 4gs?

    since we'll be selling two 3gs 's instead of one we should easily be able to afford two 4gs instead of waiting and then just selling mine at that point..

    ideas?

    I'd just say you may not have enough. Even selling two 3GS's. Then you may only have enough for 1 4G. Since the 3GS will be lower in price so less money people will pay for it. And the 4G will likely be more expensive than the 3GS now.

    Sorry dude, but 3GS prices are about to bomb when they become the cheapo entry level model in a couple of weeks. Anyone wanting an iPhone at the moment will be waiting till after the 4G release.

    I think you'll have difficulty selling a 3GS for good money soon, so it sounds like an expensive way of getting a 4G.
