And why? I just got my 16 gig and I am not enticed. They didn't add enough to make it worthwhile. Plus, I am really not in love with the plastic back.

I am not. I will keep my V1 iPhone forever, as I consider it a monumental piece of history. Seeing as how it works so well for me, I will also use it for another year or so. If they come out with a 32 gig model for a good price, I will likely upgrade then.

So who's with me? G1 iPhones FTW! ;)

I'm probably going to get a 3G but I was really hoping for 32GB. The price point makes it worthwhile though. I'll still keep my v1 as a backup of course.

I'll be keeping my iDay iPhone. Nothing on the new phone tickles my fancy enough to but one.

I have stated numerous times that I will stick with the phone I have. While Steve made the price very attractive, people still need to think about what the new data plans will be. Even if they stay the same, there isn't enough on the new phone to get me to switch. The App Store is my big thing.

i will most likely wait it out, for a few reasons:
1. see how much the 3g plan will be
2. will we have to pay extra for full gps
3. how long will it be for a price cut and memory boost(like with ver 1)

I'm not going to buy one because I already have a perfectly good gps in my car and I don't need to track a route and I never really use the internet on the phone for anything major besides looking things up quickly anyways. Plus it sounds like the battery life is going to be bad. The only people in my mind that should be buying these is just people that don't have iPhone's already.

The announcement was pretty much what I expected. This is the iPhone for mass market and at this price point they will probably succeed. I'm not ashamed to admit I was happy with the thought of being one of the happy few who owned an iPhone in Belgium. Now it will be 'oh yeah, got one too...' It was my little box of magic that turned people's heads;)
3G alone isn't worth it for me to upgrade, and the gps (apparently not a real GPS?) neither...I'll go with wifi anyday of the week and the GPS I have work like a charm.
All in all, a little pleased with the lack of dramatic changes and a little annoyed with the iPhone for the masses.
G1 ftw!

No thanks, I'll keep my v1. I'm always around Wifi and don't care too much about 3G. Nothing big about the new 3g phone if you ask me.

I wont be getting it either, really nothing that strikes me as a must have. I have semi gps already.

I have MMS on this one already, I have it jailbroken and modded to my liking and 3g to save 20 seconds on loading pages isn't a big deal to me

Not to mention I have video recording and the camera pro app.

If there was video chat or video mms or anything else I might go for it but its just not worth it to me.

Not enough

I definitely wont switch - not enough for me to move over - If they would have just mentioned mms on the new - then yes - but still no mms .... cmon.
Also people arent thinking about whether or not this includes a rebate for new AT&T customers. They also did not mention anything of a rebate for that price point. I find it hard to believe that it would be 199 without some kind of rebate from At&t ?

The iPhone is their new product they will continue to enhance it and add features, however still no cut and paste, still no real MMS, are basics on a smartphone. When 2.0 comes out we will have all the same features as iPhone 3g except for GPS or faster internet.

I have wifi almost everwhere and GPS in my car so those features don't seal it for me, plus the v1 is more sleek looking.

Im more excited about the mobile me service that will allow push to my phone saving battery life.

I am most certainly getting one. The design is enough, but I really want GPS as well.

Not buying when? Ever or when they first come out? I can't say that I'll never get one, the 3G speed is appealing but I'm definitely not lining up to buy them on 7/11.

anyone think the plastic back looks cheap?
No, I think it actually looks pretty nice. Right out of the box. How it will look in a week or two is the question.

Regardless, we all use cases right?
