I've had two iPhones stolen (one in a snatch-and-grab on the DC metro and the other in a pick-pocket theft in a DC restaurant) in less than three months. I'm no longer eligible for an upgrade, so I now have to use a 3G a friend is generously offering for free. Just to be clear, this means I paid $300 for an iPhone 4 I didn't even want (I had just gotten a replacement 3GS to fix a battery issue) in August to end up using a 3G by October. I feel like the Job of iPhone owners. Depending on when Apple rolls out a new version (or better yet -- a Verizon version), it's unlikely I'll be able to upgrade until summer, 2010. Wah. Sometimes I hate how dependent I am on technology. Any other solution (canceling my AT&T account, switching to Verizon for a Droid or adding a new number to my account) still would have cost at least $300, so I'm down to just the freebie two-generation-old-but-still-works iPhone and a sense that I'm cursed. At least I still have my iPad!
