Are you going to get the iPhone 2.0?
I have been asked that several times the past few days. As Friday fast approaches the answer is still the same, no I won’t be upgrading.
My three reasons why I won’t be upgrading:
- I don’t want to pay AT&T the $18 for the privilege of changing phones.
- The fact that the data plan cost slightly more, though understandably with the 3G speed and GPS included.
- The fact that you have to pay so much extra for text messages, which I have been doing more of since getting the iPhone.
The iPhone App Store will still work with my current iPhone when it goes online. The only applications I won’t be able to take advantage of – that I can foresee – are those using GPS. I haven’t really played with GPS enough to say I need it. Goggle Maps have worked very well for my current purposes.
A year from now when my AT&T plan is up I will consider whatever version of the iPhone is available. I think I’ll consider upgrading then.
