iPhone 3G S
I can't wait to get it, my current phone's battery is starting to die the past month or so, only holds about a day's charge. Didn't want to pay for a new battery in the mean time so I'm glad they're releasing this in June.
I've been using the beta version of the iPhone 3.0 OS for a few months and it rocks, and as always Apple's API's are a joy to use. Since I use it for development I can write off most of the cost of the hardware ;) Now I just have to actually
I've heard from a couple people that it's kind of a boring incremental update, but since I have the original version of the iPhone, it's actually a fairly large step up for me. Mostly, due to the 3G network and 4x as much storage. 32gb, yum. Also, the new camera is a huge upgrade, w/ auto-focus and macro. Sick of blurry looking crap photos.

Finally, Router/NAS/Printer Solution
But, the best part, and why it was worth a little extra money to go this route, is that i can hook up a USB hub to it and attach the printer and my backup hard drives and (most importantly) my photo storage hard drives. I'll reduce clutter on my desk and everything will always be available to (e:James) too.
I've only got a few GB's left on my notebook hard drive, so I desperately needed to get a better photo storage plan. Right now they are all on my notebook and one backup drive and one CD per month. Now the recent ones only will be on my notebook, and there will be two external hard drives plus the CD backups. Sweet. And I have my favorite / best photos stored online too, for offsite backup.
I think running out of space is slowing down my laptop. Need to keep some space free for sleep and scratch.
And I'm no computer guy, but- even if they DID have to go manually change a feature on every account, would that really take 2 months? Can't they write some little program that would do it in like 5 min?
And, if they have manually put all iphones on "no MMS" accounts- I wish they would bounce them back to the senders or something.
I mean I can handle not sending MMS myself, for now. But I hate that people send them to me, and they get no error or anything, but I have no clue they've send it, and then they're annoyed that I don't respond. At least bounce back "unable to send, this user cannot receive MMS" or something.
And while I'm griping about ATT- do you guys drop calls like ALL THE TIME? For a company whose ad campaign makes such a big deal about 'fewest dropped calls'- I had NEVER dropped a call before switching to ATT. Now it happens OFTEN. Now, I don't know if that's ATT or the iPhone, but I have my hunches.
Also in that report, tethering will bring the data cost of the plan to $70 from $60. Yeah right.
AT&T: fuck you and die.
I was also hoping for a revamped notification manager. Like I only get a popup when I have texts, but not emails? etc.
Not to mention that f**king ATT isn't going to support MMS and tethering right away (see my journal). Blah.
I still want one.
But the 32gb will cost me not 299, but $699, until february when my contract is up. Oy. $400 change?! I can live without video until then. Esp since a lot of what I want (cut and paste, text forwarding, +/-MMS) will be available for free in the software update next week.)
I definitely will consider getting one seeing as the price is reasonable. What I don't understand is the 7.2mbps HSPDA. Do we have that here? The whole time it is just the phone hardware holding back the speed?
