To Wait or Not to Wait?

My iPhone 3Gs took a dive and is dead.... So I'm stuck either:
  1. Buy a used 3G and wait on the 5
  2. Buy an iPhone 4 now? And get wrapped into another 2 year contract.

Depends on where you will be--us hicks in the sticks still don't have 4g coverage.

If you can I'd wait as I reckon the iphone5 will have some good improvements and features over the iphone4.

I don't know why, but I was expecting something related to cruising somehow.

Ok - something nautical - buy a new I-phone and purchase the Navex app and you'll have a gps, compass, knotmeter, charts and plotter!
You get every noah chart there is - all for only $50! I love it!!!!!

Skip both. Buy an iPad and install Skype. Cheaper than the iPhone (over 2 years) and more versatile.

Well I think it's kind of nautical. The marina here is littered with people's cell phones!

Skype lets you call someone from any computer, including the iPad.

Wait a couple weeks for the 5 to be announced and specs given and then decide based on the price of the 4's (or the new 4s) after the announcement.

Never heard of it. Learn something new every day!
Some how I can't picture myself holding my laptop up to my ear - "Hello, hello? Is the phone for me??"
