    I'm debating....

    I love tmobile... But the iPhone won't work (3g at least) with the 1700mhz frequency...

    I also love my iPhone 3g ... But don't wanna pay $100 a month for service...

    Should I get the G1 ?? & stay with tmobile ???
    Or
    Should I switch to at&t and pay $100/mo for service???

    Or

    Should I stay with tmobile and get another phone that works on the 1700mhz 3g frequency???

    Anyone know if there's any phones tmobile doesn't offer that work on their 3g network??? I could only find like 4....

    Help me make up my mind

    Says who and where? I doubt they will release a new piece of hardware after selling hundreds of thousands of pieces.

    Are you talking about the OS 3.0 for iPhone?

    Yeah I really need to get an iphone.. my buddy has one and everytime we go somewhere he's using the google gps thing or checking movie times or doing the random picture sending.. and I'm just standing there holding my drink like a douche. I'm like.. my phone just makes calls.. he's like.. that sucks. I'd say iphone all the way... only if you'll use its extra functions to make the $100/mo worth it.

    I know for certain reasons. And even if I didn't have those reason, it still makes a lot of sense. Two reasons:

    1. They've release a new iPhone every June for 2 years.
    2. People that bought the iPhone in 2007 have contracts that end this June. Apple needs to release a new iPhone to keep all these people using the iPhone - else they might go to a BlackBerry Curve or something.
