    Honestly, If you dont want to make a contract, you can buy an unlocked the iphone 3GS costs arround $500 - $700 at ebay... BUT!!!! I'll never pay that amount just to have a camera of 3mpx and some other features that are already installed on the "NEW" iPod 3g 16gb, that only the camera lacks but I'm sure that with the hundreds you'll save, you'll be able to buy a 12mpx camera! or use a 3.0mpx of any cheap cellphone and then transfer the photos by mail or PC to your iPod (It's what I do).
    Men with my Ipod 2g and the 3.0 jailbreak I can do all things that you can read at apple webpage on ipod description and MORE!!!! And I only pay $200.
    Also I'm connected anywhere cause wherever you can find Wi-Fi.
    Think about what you really need and dont buy by impulse.
    Hope this help you.

    All the ipod touches play the same games. They don't get better games. They don't get better graphics. They get smoother framerates in the few games that are intensive enough to actually push the hardware.

    I too have asked myself the same question. If I ever find an unlocked iPhone 3GS for about 500$, it will have the same specs as the iPod Touch 3G + phone capabilities + camera?

    So I would not miss any benefits from the iPod Touch 3G?

    And if I ever have a Sim card with a phone/text only (no data) with Rogers or a company like that I'll be able to use it as a Phone without the 3G? Without having to worry about the 3G to connect itself without my permission (like I heard it did when you bought an iPhone with a contract but without a data plan)?

    I would not like to receive a 1000$ bill for 3G internet I didn't use.

    So what say you?

    Stupid question... get the iPhone 3G it does everything the iPod Touch does and more.
    Unlock it and use any contract or service provider you want. (service providers that use sim cards of course)
