My 3GS is all but dead. i cant connect to a wifi source unless i am within 15' radius and my cell signal never breaks 1 bar even though my wife's 3G will hit a wifi signal from anywhere in my 3200sqft house and her cell signal never drops below 3 bars in the same area which i am.
With that said, i am obviously looking to upgrade and voila! the iPhive is due soon. but here's the rub (as all of you know), the wonderful new phone is a completely different adapter which means it's absolutely useless/worthless to the different devices which i am able to connect my 3GS (6 to be exact). On the bright side, all 6 devices have capability to connect to non-iphone devices as well. So here's my question: will Apple be providing an adapter with each iPhive to aleviate the need to spend more money on overpriced adapter or will they screw over the loyal users and force us to either seek alternative smartphones in lieu of buying a whole slew of adapters to work with the new iPhive?
While i realize providing the rubberband of sovreignty to all 4-4s users to fixed the borked antenna issue is a much cheaper initiative than supplying adapters, considering the position Apple is forcing consumers into, an included adapter seems not only logical but also customer service friendly. For as much as Apple claims to be Customer Service oriented, i can't imagine them NOT including an adapter.
I guess it just depends on how much money third party marketers are kicking back to Apple to NOT include the adapter, thus forcing consumers to make the choice of buy the phone and bit the bullet or switch to a different phone since quite obviously that means having new adapters anyway.
