Good to know if I ever have to resort to the app. For now I'll keep my bestest friend Mr. Garmin on my dash at the ready. He's never failed me.

I had said in a prior post, http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=636, there was no iPHone (AT&T) coverage on the DC Metro.

That seems to be changing this fall in the 20 busiest stops. The list is in this article.

I just thought I should set the record straight.

Get the 3gs. Not for the space but for the increased processor speed and RAM.

I'd go with the 3gs. It's faster has better battery depending on what you are doing, more advanced features and most important more rAm... I had a lot of freeze ups with my 3g...haven't had them with my 3gs. also far less drops than before. The 3gs Is what they should have released last year.

I thought it would help in the 3g vs. 3gs decision if I posted some videos I took with my camera on a recent trip to WDW! I was really impressed with the quality!

I went all out.. 'cause I am still a teenager sometimes with my decision making and got a 32 gb GS. I spent way too much for it.. but I like the fact that I can watch "The Dark Knight" with head phones any time I want. I've also been able to use the movie rentals from Itunes (rented Punisher - Warzone & the Soloist so far) to check out some movies on my Iphone as well. I like knowing that I basically have unlimited space.

My wife just wanted the 8 gb 3G.. she is completely happy with it... and has already loaded up several Disney Apps on it.. and constantly researching for more!!!

Good luck with your decision!

When it comes to memory and storage space, I've always gone with the "get as much as you can" rule, because I seem to eventually use it all. YMMW, of course.

Did you guys know there is a Chipolte app now? You put in your location and it tells you where the closest ones are, pick your choice, place your order and hit send.

Your order is suppose to be ready when you get there.. I am gonna try it next week..

The software update has been done (3.0) but you guys need to wait for AT&T to sort out the carrier part of it. Works well tho here in the uk
