New iPhone 3GS

OK, I broke down and bought the new iPHone 3GS. I wasn’t going to buy it for several reasons. First, my eligibility for a new phone on my account wasn’t until December of this year, so I would have to give them $200 extra just to buy the new phone. I didn’t really have the money to go buy it. Lastly, I was so mad at AT&T for their services, I wasn’t going to give them 2 more years of my subscription.

The primary problem I have is that I don’t get a consistent connection of phone services at home. Often I have to use the landline, otherwise I get disconnected.

However, I found a solution that worked out. My sister, whom I gave my original iPhone, was eligible for an update. I talked to AT&T and they said she can buy the phone and give me the new phone for me to use. That worked out since I will give my 3G phone to her then I will use the 3GS. She will be extending her services for 2 more years, which she said it was OK. However, she would have to upgrade the plan, $10 more per month for the 3G coverage data plan. I would have to subsidize her on the difference. Even then, I came out ahead and I can still drop AT&T if Apple decides to go to Verizon after December of this year. 

I do like the phone better. It seems faster, which is what I needed since after the OS3.0 upgrade the 3G slowed down a bit for me. Also, the 16GB was filled up and the 32GB will give me some headroom as far as the storage. Woohoo, more songs to add to the phone!

Thanks sis for doing it for me.
