I wouldn't recommend the new iPhone 3G yet

I love my original iPhone...but from all the news and anecdotal info I have, it appears that the new Apple iPhone 3G is a bit of mess.

The 3G network that is supposed to make things "twice" as fast is quite spotty. At least in our area here in Colorado. So the phone has issues changing from the the 3G to the Edge networks and that can make for dropped calls, no or little bars and much frustration.

Also, the "half" price actually works out to more money if you factor in the whole contract. They upped the data plan to $30 from $20. So, that's an extra $240 over the life of the plan.

But there is a new update out today that is supposed to fix the 3G issues. We'll see.
