    Well i sold my ipod touch now...and well i wanna buy the iphone form the states <_<

    I dont wanna get the old iphone and then they come out with the new 3G iphone but i dont also want to get the new because it would be way to expensive to buuy and i would only be using the internet at home so the 3G wont really be used as much.....

    An Ideas Would Help Guys, THanks.....School now <_<

    Sure its worth it. The first gen iPhone is just amazing now as it was when it was released. If you don't care about 3G and a new design, you have no reason not to buy, if you can find it. The 1st gen will be greatly enhanced by the 2.0 Software Update that's coming. The most rumored new hardware changes are 3G, GPS, and maybe a new camera. Some think a camera capable of video on the front to enable video conferencing might be available. Perhaps some processor upgrades, but who knows? I got one a couple of weeks ago and I'm happy. If the new version is compelling enough I may grab it as well, but if its just 3G and GPS, I don't care that much.

    I think the rule of thumb is that if a tech product has the feature set you want at the time, there's no reason not to buy. There is always a new revision coming around the corner. In a year everyone will be frothing at the mouth for the 3rd gen and so on and so on...

    Yeah I would agree with this. Although mikesgroove is right, it doesn't mean its the best option.

    Yeah there's always a new version coming around the corner, but look! this version is literally 2 weeks away. Find a hobby or something for now because it will be so much worth it to buy it fresh from the new release, with its new features (I bet there's more to it than just 3G and GPS). And if it's too expensive, the older iPhone will be MUCH cheaper so either way you can't go wrong, unless you can't wait two weeks.

    I really don't know, but I would highly consider being patient and waiting... That's my plan, at least. (Hence the reason they're sold out) (Look at my location, that will explain things
