    I want to get an iPhone 3G but first I want to know if it's worth buying or not.

    could some people who already bought it tell me if its good or if it's really buggy?

    honestly, i don't think its worth it unless it will be your first iPhone. i'm glad i didn't upgrade from my 1st gen iPhone. There's only 3 differences- plastic back, 3G, and GPS.

    I don't particularily care for the plastic back (white is pretty nice, though), 3G is pretty useless for many, many people. I've heard from friends and many podcasters that where they had full bars on EDGE, there signal strength in the same area is much weaker on 3G. AT&T's 3G network in the States is pretty weak. The aGPS is cool, but it is a crippled GPS and I feel like the locate me functionm in my current iPhone does just fine. It can even track you on 2.0.

    so, all that to say, i don't think its worth it to upgrade from a first gen iPhone. but if the 3G will be your first iPhone, than its definitely worth it. iphones are amazing. so glad i sold my touch awhile back and got one!
