The only downside is leaving Verizon. I may have to wait for the "3GS.2" since I still have 10 months to go and they will probably have the next version out in 12 months or so.I wish we could stay with Verizon, but our contract is up and I plan to buy a pair of them soon. The 3GS looks like a nice upgrade.
Well I'm locked into Verizon until May 2010 so if this comes to fruition then I'll be a happy camper.The deal between Apple and ATT for exclusive distribution
of the iPhone ends in mid-2010. Verizon Wireless really, really wants
a piece of the action. One way around the exclusive deal is for Apple
to introduce another device, say an iPhone with a slide-out keyboard,
or a model with a larger touch screen, and give it a name that doesn't
include the word "phone."
I had Verizon for 12 years prior to switching to ATT and the iPhone when it first came out and have never looked back. Last year I spent the night out in front of the ATT store when the 3G came out and plan to do the same on the 19th.
There is nothing that compares to it....everything else is a "wannabe", nothing compares to the iPhone. Yea, it cost a bit more to have but Apple has been pretty good with the updates and upgrades. I know it's not for everyone, but I would highly recommend it for people that like the "wow" factor, and won't be disappointed.
Besides....my favorite camping spot just got 3G, how can you beat that?
