    iphone, shall I go for 3g or find a used 2g? Any sign of a pricedrop? Any other advice?

    Right, I've decided to get an iphone now after finally cancelling my 3 contract.
    Can't decide which deal to go for,
    I might as well pay £45 for 9 months then switch tarrifs back to £35 as opposed to paying £99 for the phone, just seems a lot so I thought I might buy a used 2g one and go for the simplicity deal?

    Is the 3g any better to use?

    Anything else to consider?

    Thanks in advance.

    The 3g is MUCH quicker on the internet,

    Not wanting to start a flame war
    but I had to return my iPhone 3G due to bad 3G experienced on the iPhone.
    I tried the sim in a different phone and had no issues with signal strength.
    Seems to me as a hardware fault, do check out the Apple forums.

    Also I never had this issue but loads of posts about cracking plastic back.

    BTW i live in London and world in C London.

    The phone itself is amazing!

    Funny you should say that.... I did exactly the same thing for the same reason.

    Yes, its a nice piece of kit. Shame about the bugs. (Did you try to use the GPS? Thats appalling also!)

    Personally, a 3G Iphone is good, but the battery life sucks. and if you in a poor 3g area it usually goes back to standard 2g.

    What I do is turn off 3g until I want to surf. Its great then, get the best of both worlds with the battery and functionality.

    Went for the 16gb 3g. Now I need to download itunes which I hated when I tried it a few years ago. Thanks for the input, ill see how I get on with it.
