This phone is redicoulous.
Im with optus Aus and to upgrade you have to pay an upgrade fee for a phone that has a couple of new features. What the hell im gonna explode in a moment i swear, im being serious, after hearing about this in the first time of my life. I agree with all of Allen's arguements you go man, your an inspiration, your arguments about this phone are seriously good,and well worth it and pointed at. iPhone is a piece of Sh*t im telling you.
Your just wasting your precious money in this financial crisis. Were not rich as you are Steve Jobs give us a chance mate, buddy, pal, amigo
Any bet the sales growth will be much slower this time very slow because of the rigourous amount of money being paid just to upgrade to the new iphone, and Jobs-ey will regret it soo bad.
im with optus and im in 1 year of my contract already woo-hoo/woot woot but optus is making me pay a $240 fee, as we so call stealing $240 from me just to get a phone that has a couple of features aka because i want a new iphone early. if anyone upgrades and disapproves of what im saying, you are making the worst decision of your entire life you better ask for longer hours and more shifts at your job cause your money will be wasted on this thing rather than essentials.
for the people who refuse to buy an iphone 3gs and wait till your contract ends well done you've made the best choice and maybe smarter than einstein himself.
On "You Tube" type in iPhone Upgrade Fees and listen to all the reasonable complaints people think about this "Upgrade Fee".
Its not worth it, companies will keep pressuring you to do it but say eff off buddy
seriously id rather stick with my iphone 3g, the new software 3.0 already has half of those features the other iphone has plus jailbreak to get all those features anyways for free than $34 a month for it.
Who cares about performance, my iphne is never slow only when turning it on and maybe the new one is the same.
People don't waste your money, save your money for a better iphone, i promise you there will be a new iphone somewhere around the corner you've gotta cool your jets and think of how much money you could save.
Remember when everyone thought the iphone 3g is the last phone apple will make i remembered that too. then a year later what happens? a new iphone with a couple new features such as higher camera. next year i can predict a new iphone with 5 mp, improved performance with an intel processor and nvidia graphics maybe and osx leopard, also altec lansing speakers even better,oled screen, 5 inch screen with no borders(scratch resistant, (im starting to love it already!!) flat metallic mirror back(scratch resistant) and more...
but seriously dont bother upgrading or getting this phone, iphone 3gs is for those who dont own own an iphone and those who say that iphone is not a good phone and they want to see their features in it.
Is it not a basic thing to diferent an item phisically??.
Same shape .neither the back r front specify its a 3gs.!! What hapened
To this apple people. The R and D is that much worst.
A small diffrence in the shape r even the icon can do a thousand things.

Criticism leads to anxiety. You guys dont know any idea what a phone can do to you. It mentally affects you on what information you are gathering about a perticular phone. You guys talk nonsence. Speard information of the phone with its likes & dislikes. Dont make a war of it. People really love there phone even it was a Nokia 1100. I really love the Iphones because they showed us what TOUCH really is. If you like it buy them or wait for a new Apple Phone product if you feel this phone just might slip through.

I am trying to understand your purpose or reason to being on this thread. It is obvious that you don’t think much of the iPhone, but you spend so much time responding to post here. You see I like my iPhone and enjoy using it; I read the post here from time to time to see if others have found things to do with the phone that I might have not discovered. When I had a Sony phone, I look on the Sony post, LG I looked on the LG post, a Nokia I looked at the Nokia post. It is just irrational that you spend your time complaining about a phone you do not have, to people who have the phone and like their phone. Does this make any sense to you? It just seems a bit crazy to me. When I read your post I am just perplexed? Today I decided to write to you, not because I mind you complaining about the iPhone, (everyone has phones they like and dislike), but rather I am really curious as to the working of you reasoning system and the time and effort you put into posting about a phone you neither have nor want. That is just weirdly strange. Please enlighten me as to your thought process.

Here is my review about the 3G and 3gS Iphone
It is very expensive device,over rated IMHO
only couple things I liked about this handset is user interface and touch screen everything else is OK also warranty is good too and finally 32GB space!!
also now over heating issues put me off buying this handset!!!
(Overheating iPhone 3GS: Apple blames the weather)
I got HTC touch Pro 2 and I could not more happy
save yourself loads of $$ buy HTC TouchPro 2
you will not regret it honest
PS. I have had Iphone 3G for 7 months and I used 3GS for a day and I can honestly say not worth paying £600 or more
