    Anyone buying an iPhone 4 but NOT selling their 3G/S?

    just curious to see if anyone plans on keeping their iPhone 3G or 3GS as a backup, rather than selling it once their iPhone 4 comes in. couldn't one technically buy or make a micro sim adapter to go back and forth bewteen phones if needed?

    I'm not selling mine because I'm going to use it as a backup. I'm sure people will make adapters, just how they did for the headphone jack on the 1st gen phone.

    I am keeping my 3GS, as a backup and also because I love it so much! lol.. It's been one of the best smart-phones I've ever owned and I would hate to sell it!

    It'll stay in my collection, along with some others like the Nokia N95-4 ; Nokia E90 ; Palm Treo 750 ; Nokia E71-2 ; BB 9700 ; HTC TyTn II.. to name a few..

    And, I will be using the 3GS until iOS4 is JB'en and MyWi works on the new iPhone 4

    yeah you can make an adapter easily to go from micro to large. It's just a holder.

    I will keep mine for a little while. Then I'll sell it.

    I guess if you can afford to have both then go ahead. I couldn't afford to have both so I sold mine to pay for the new one.

    I can't sell my 3Gs fast enough - only to cover the cost of the new "4".

    I'll be selling my 3G to fund the 4. Hopefully I'll be able to get a decent price for it since it's in minty condition with warranty and all accessories

    If I do get the iPhone 4 when it first comes out, I plan on keeping my 3GS as a back up in case something happens to the new one, or I'm going on a trip, and don't want to take the good iPhone along.
