3.0 Software

iPhone 3.0 free for all on 17 June

Oh and I am just downloading the Gold Master of the 3.0 update as devs get it today :-)

3.0GM seems fine much like Beta 5 but I noticed it didn't loose the position of all my apps when I upgraded but remembered where I had put them which was great!

Upgrade from 3G to 3GS on contract

The only sensible way to upgrade for existing iPhone 3G owners (well sensible people would probably wait until the end of the contract!) is:

(a) Sell iPhone 3G on eBay for approx £200
(b) Buy iPhone 3GS 32Gb on PAYG for £ - net cost is around £338 but then on a new 18 month £44 contract it is £175!!
(c) Put Pay Monthly SIM in PAYG phone

This way least you can probably upgrade to the 4th gen iPhone on launch!

18 month contracts and 12 month products cycles are a recipie for tears!!
