Non Moving Related Post!

Well, now that the new iPhone has been released for $199, and the "old" 3G is $99, I'm a little torn. Do I want brand new and shiny for only $4 per month over the life of a contract, or do I want an extra $100 in my pocket right now? I'm really not sure. I don't have to decide right this minute anyway, since the 3GS isn't available until next week and I'm also waiting to see if AT&T will actually drop their rate plans as rumored. It's looking pretty likely that by the end of July I will have an iPhone.

I plan to start by getting in touch with someone from the business side of AT&T since I get a corporate discount, to find out whether I can get any other freebies or upgrade fees waived with one or the other. Peanut encouraged me to go with the brand new shiny 3GS since it is only $4 more over the life of the contract, but I don't know that I want to spend $200 on a phone ever again. Not that I regret it with my Palm, but geez. It's just a lot of money. And I know we're getting ready to bleed money for a few weeks on our moving expenses. (OK, not totally unrelated to moving...)
