WHY I'm reconsidering upgrading my iPhone - 06/28/08 10:37 AM

Well they appear neat... much better deal than the iPhone 1.0...<br><br>SO I thought maybe I'd wait til Jan or next year to upgrade... mine is fine.<br><br>Then today we had to go to an AT&T store to upgrade my wife's 4 yr old phone. Battery died - won't recharge and to replace just the battery is $45.<br>So we figured time to upgrade. they had a real nice LG Shine $200 phone for $49 after rebate and 2 yr contact. Because of my son's and my iPhones -we're not changing carriers any time soon.<br><br>The LG Shine is 3G and comes with 2 antennas for better reception. The 1st antenna will pick up the closest 3 towers and the 2nd antenna is the 3G tower... so not only do you get 3G capability for internet, but just general phone call service is better. I checked at home where our reception is poor (trees block signal and we're in a slight depression) and sure enough my iPhone 0-1-2 bars... my wife's new LG Shine is 3 ! <br><br>Puts a whole new perspective on the new iPhone for me... <br><br>Well.... here's A-nother fine mess you got me into !! <br><br><br><br>David (OFI)

Depends on when you're coming back. Actually, I'd like to try some of those other places around there. That British pub place is supposed to be good. Can't remember the name of it.<br><br>
