In other words, don't do it, wait til you have options.
While there is a not insignificant amount of evidence pointing to a possible verizon iPhone release, this is not one of them. I don't see how it can be.

Stupid question: All iPhones in general? Or just the old ones.
The rumor is tuesday verizon will announce a CDMA iPhone for verizon. MOst likely, only the iPhone 4, since that is what would be profitable. My thoughts are they will announce it coming in 6 months in june, and put a CDMA/GSM chip in it like the Droid Pro or Global.

I think it's an awesome deal, though if you play your cards right, you can get some other phones that are around the same caliber for free through sales.

Whatever other evidence there may or may not be (Way to much to talk about and way to OT in this thread anyway), I don't see how this price drop has anything to do with it. They are clearing old stock. It happens. We are almost exactly 6 months away from the iPhone 5, at which point the iPhone 4 will probably drop to the 8GB $100 slot and the 3GS becomes useless to AT&T. They want to get rid of them. Not sure why that means that a totally different model is coming to verizon.

Yea, just trying to get rid of the remaining 3GS stock. I don't really know why anyone would want to buy one at this point besides the fact that its $50 since its already outdated and is going to be outdated even more. But i guess if you wanna spend something cheap while being bound by the 2 year contract...go ahead.

I went out and bought 2 of them! They run teh same ios as the iphone 4 which is the 4.2.1. I also have an iphone4 and basically they are the same phones. The differences are the 3gs is 8 gig and the i4 is16 +gig also the front camera is not available on the 3gs. The processor is said to be slower but I cant tell. The 3gs runs fast and smooth just like my iphone4. The resolution on the i4 is sharper and the camera is a 5 megapixel vs a 3mp. They are pretty similar though I felt like returning the iphone4 and gettting the 3gs. I would have saved 150.00 and would have barely felt the difference in performance. You can still have facetime on the 3gs there is an app called tango and it does the same as the facetime on the iphone4 which is see each other during a conversation. The battery life on the 3gs is also not quite as powerful but depending on how much you use it you can get through the day. I ordered car and house chargers on ebay for 3.00 they work great. The apps are cool but nothing worth writing home to ma about. I think what I like best is the fast touch screen response and the easy internet capabilities which means I can look anything up online and get it in seconds. I came from a blackberry and that was kind of crappy compared to this. I loved my bberry but now ask myself how and why... I was naive! The iphone is trully a really nice phone and works great. I bought an otter case which is 50.00 bucks but it fully protects the phone which I need due to my work enviornment.
