I want an Iphone for obviously cell phone n ipod all in one
AtnT has a
3G 32Gb refurb for $150
4G 16GB refurb for $150

a friend is saying that i'll regret AtnT and to wait for Verizon's iphones launching in January


which should i get?

I currently have T-mobile sidekick but im gonna sell this to my friend so i don't have to pay $200 early contract termination fee and cuz he needs a phone

I want the 3G cuz of capacity but the 4G cuz its i guess better?

There is no such thing as a 4G iPhone. :bleh:

The iPhone 4 would be the better option for some things as it is obviously faster and has more system memory. If proximity sensor issues are not a problem for you that is, amongst the myriad of other issues.

The 3GS, if you can get that, would be a better buy if you don't care about cutting edge.

If it is a true 3G (which sounds iffy), I would pass. 3GS or iPhone 4 only are worth it. The 3G is already obsolete in terms of applications that can use them. Even the 3GS is being left behind for some apps.

It's a 3GS, it's almost as fast as the iPhone 4.

My reasons from previous post stand. Your call on what you want.

I hardly store any songs on my phone because I use Pandora almost all the time.

You need to figure out whether you will get unlimited data. If not, you have to ration things out.

If the device you used had a camera in the front, it was the 4, if not, it was likely the 3GS.

AT&T only has 1 decent Android device, the Dell Streak. Everything else is previous generation for Android :(

I don't know that that is true. They just released the Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) and 3 new Motorola handsets (not sure if they are decent or not, haven't really looked into them since I am on Verizon)

Get the 3GS. Skip the 4.

Also, I just use pandora and then pay 5 bucks a month or MOG. any music I want I can download to my phone at 320kbps. Awesomesauce.

Also: AT&T.

I've lived with the iphone 3g for a year and a half now, every os update makes the thing slower. Going to give the wp7 a go in November.

False.

What you wrote just now, and also, you can sync with any device, if you install a 3rd party app. But iTunes bought music comes in .m3u or something like that?

500 down. Why you got no or bad credit? That's what they do when you have either.

don't you work at the auto detailing place? if you have pretty much any job and are not in debt i think you should have decent credit, no?

Wow 500 deposit? That's ridiculous. I would vote get a credit card, build credit and avoid that stupid fee.

EDIT: Not to bring this up as a jerk, but you've said on here you have used a CC before... So you should have one... unless you used someones elses. :lol:

Wait for a proper 4G iPhone on Verizon when it launches at the beginning of 2011.

Oh my gosh Albo, you are so right. It's absolutely impossible to convert .m3u's to .mp3's.

Thank you for enlightening me.

Except for the Samsung Captivate... which is similar in hardware to the iphone 4 but doesn't keep you held down to the iArmy

Good call with the G2, Superb phone

And like someone said, the regular 3g iphone is SLOW... not worth it
