when i graduate in my, my mom said she would get me an iphone as a graduation present (and a bribe to go to a certain university lol). my initial thought was to get the iphone 4, but now the iphone 3gs is only $49. so now my question is what is the difference between the iphone 3gs and iphone 4?

    The iPhone 4 has a better screen display, better processor, HD camera with front camera for Facetime, faster, lighter, and longer battery and all around better.

    Your better off waiting for the new iPhone coming this year it will have better specs or the white iPhone 4.

    It's a million times better and I agree wait for the new one to arrive in around June or July.

    There's a big difference between the iPhone 4 and the 3gs. Much larger than between the 3g and the 3gs. But like the others have said, I would wait until they realize the new one in the summer. That way, you can decide if you want to go for the new one, or the iPhone 4 which will probably see a price drop then.

    Why don't you just get the newer iPhone instead of the 4?

    Switch to Sprint and ask for an EVO. iphones are weak sauce.

    Idk if I'd get the new iPhone right when it comes out, they always tend to be a bit glitchy at first.

    I have the iPhone 4 & I love it.

    I'd wait for the iphone 5 as well. also, while you're at it, make sure you have verizon, otherwise having an iphone will do you no good

    AT&T isn't bad, verizon is better though. (I switched to AT&T myself because the data plans are cheaper and because of rollover minutes)

    Choose which network is better in your area. It varies.

    ^You know a few months ago I would've denied that. But I got a T-mobile G2 and I must say, it is the best phone I've ever had. I have the best of both worlds you can say. I have a iPod Touch and its practically like the iPhone 4. And an Android phone.

    Just do that OP, since your on At&T get the Atrix, that phone is an iPhone killer. And if you can, get the new iPod Touch. Not only do you have a great phone, you have the iPhone 4 minus the phone with the Touch.

    Agreed, chose whichever network provides the better coverage in your college area. Overall, verizon covers a larger area (as advertised on TV). However, data rates also matters. So it varies.

    Personally, I prefer the iPhone 4 because of the enormous App Store. I know that all those new dual core, 4G, tegra 2, superphones outspec the iPhone 4 but the iPhone 4 is still pretty fast (and it has all those goody-goody apps!)
