Well as far as I am concerned I have lost my ipod touch. I have looked all over for it and im in the market for a new one. My old one had cracks n the screen any way and with the new upgrades out for it I wanted to buy a new one anyway. Now I was wondering, what do you guys thing. Should I buy an Iphone or a new ipod touch? Im currently a verizon customer.

Buy yourself an Ipod Touch. Whats the point of having a iphone if you can't use the phone? Unless you want to swith to AT&T and shell out alot of money every month, get yourself a cheap and inexpensive touch (which in the end will cost hundreds more than buying a ipod with no monthly fees) The ipod touch can do pretty much the same thing an iphone can do only without the ability to make calls.

iPhone cost:
$199 (iphone) + $36 (activation fee) + [$39.99 (each month) * 24] = $1194.76 + what ever the tax/vat is.

iPod Touch cost
$229 (ipod touch) = $229 + what ever tax/vat is.

Difference of $965.76

If you want to get the iPhone, don't forget to add the early termination fee (if there is one) for your verizon contract.

Whatever it is, you get it on eBay..................

eBay is full of it.

You are 1 % Correct!! Plus, don't forget that the iphone has $#!tty battery life too.
