I only bought my phone like less than a year ago.. the iPhone had been out forever already and there was no news of any new ones coming out in the immediate future. It wasnt like (I personally) went out and bought it the second it came out. How they can go from charging $400 to $99 for the same phone is freaking ridiculous.

I'm actually kind of pissed, I paid $400 for this phone less than a year ago and now they're going to offer it for $99???
The $99 price is for new 2 year contracts only.

You can get the 3.0 update for free on June 17.
- Feature Summary: Gizmodo - iPhone 3.0 OS Guide: Everything You Need to Know - iPhone OS 3.0

As a 3G owner too, I'm excited about the update, but I'm really disappointed that Apple didn't give some features of the iPhone 3G S to iPhone 3G users; first generation iPhone users got every single feature other than 3G (hardware limitation) and still continue to get these features.

Were you eligible for an upgrade at the time? If not, then you have to pay a higher price.

While the iPhone 3G S is $199/$299 if you're eligible for an upgrade, it costs $499/$599 if you're not eligible for an upgrade.

Thanks for the info. No at the time I was not eligible for the upgrade because I still had like a year on my contract and I didn't want to wait that long.

All I really freaking want to be able to do is text in landscape.

btw how will we upgrade? Will it automatically be available when you sync your phone with itunes on that day?

Besides the camera upgrade (which a software update can't provide) what features won't the 3.0 offer to 3G users?

If you're referring to video recording, then Apple could easily enable it with a software update (might be lower in fps, but its definitely do-able [see Cycorder]).

Also, voice control should have been given to 3G users. Those are the two non-hardware features that are exclusive to 3G S and could have easily been given to 3G users.

Yeah...and I cannot figure out how to do the copy and paste.

Also, freakin' IRRITATED that AT&T MMS won't be available until "sometime in late summer".

Honestly, not all that enthused about the update as I thought I'd be.

I was just going to say.. I cant figure out how to MMS??

Landscape texting FTW though.

For copying just hold your finger down on a link and it will ask you what you want to do (copy, etc) Then when you go to paste just hold your finger down wherever you want to paste it and a bubble 'paste' pops up. That's pretty cool.

And the MMS thing makes me wonder...are even the 3GS people with AT&T going to be unable to use MMS? Or is it just us poor saps who have the 3G or 1st generation?

In the US, isn't the iPhone (locked) still exclusive to AT&T? I dunno, makes me think AT&T probably should have got their shit together prior to the update but you know...what do I know?

Ooooh, thanks for the tip on the copy/paste thing, Sicy. I think I got it...going to take some getting used to.

Copy and paste is alright, I guess. Voice memo will be slightly useful. All in all, color me "meh."

I dont really get the voice thing. Is it for leaving yourself voice notes? I just use the notepad thing. Or is it for sending someone a voice message? Why not just call I guess?

If you see the video tutorial (It's only a few minutes) on Apple dot com, it makes more sense.
I like it.
