IKEA and Spike Jonze remind us above that you can't really hurt your old iPhone's feelings by upgrading to the latest, greatest iPhone 3G S, but that doesn't mean you have to dump the poor obsoleted fella either.

Rogers Canada 11th Hour iPhone 3G S Savings! Sign for 1 Addition Year, Save Up to $500

TiPb just received word from Rogers and, well, it's typically long and complicated so we'll just give them the floor:

We’ve just announced the details of special Hardware Upgrade savings for our existing iPhone customers and wanted to let you know.

There has been a lot of excitement around the new iPhone 3G S and we wanted to recognize the early adopters who helped make the iPhone the hottest-selling handset in Canadian wireless history. We will be discounting the price of the iPhone 3G S by between $250 and $500 to provide savings to many of our iPhone customers.

What this means is that eligible iPhone owners can acquire the iPhone 16GB 3G S for as low as $199 or the 32GB for as low as $299 until July 31, 2009.

For Fido customers, we’re offering the Fido Rewards iPhone 3G S promotion. This enables iPhone customers to redeem FidoDollars towards a new iPhone 3G S with an additional $100 top-up from Fido.

For customers who don’t qualify for these extra savings, we are pleased to offer Rogers Wireless customers the iPhone at our cost on rogers.com. This cost - $580 for the iPhone 3G, $680 for the iPhone 3G S 16GB and $780 for the iPhone 3G S 32GB – represents the price we pay for the device plus a nominal fee for the SIM card. Customers can access these devices at retail locations for just $19 more for the three devices.

We’re also happy to announce that Rogers and Fido are extending the 6GB/$30 data promotion until July 31. This offer is valid for customers on a new or existing iPhone plan or customers buying an Android-powered HTC Magic or HTC Dream.

Details after the break!

Apple Releases iPhone 3.0 Enterprise Deployment Guide

Daring Fireball is spot on:

The conventional wisdom at the moment seems to be that the iPhone is only a consumer device, but the conventional wisdom is wrong. Think about all the hospital/medical demos from recent iPhone events, for one thing.

People Want iPhones (Who'd Have Thunk it?)

We're not surprised. Obviously. Apple plays the product cycle and media hype engines to perfection. Still, it's interesting to see Electronista's take, based on ChangeWave data:

A mid-June study from the research group has 14.4 percent of those tracked looking to buy some kind of smartphone within the next 90 days, a record high and a large jump from 11.2 percent in March. Of these, a full 44 percent now plan to buy an iPhone compared to 30 percent just three months earlier.

Having Problems with iPhone 3.0?

If you're anything like us, the moment iPhone 3.0 hit iTunes, you hit the update button. For many, it was smooth sailing from that point on. For others...?

Not so much. We're hearing about several issues, from disconnecting Wi-Fi in 2nd Gen iPod touches (hello BT radio!) to missing apps, to sync issues, to push problems, to seach nulls, to my own little bizarre issue:

All my media is fine on my iPhone, but when I plug it in to iTunes, it's read as gigabytes of "other" data and I get a helpful message saying my iPhone is already full.

Update: O2 to Start Selling iPhone 3G S at 9:02am? Preparing for Sell Out?

Very brand-conscious start time aside, looks like UK customers on O2 now know what time the queue ends and the buying begins...

UPDATE: Sounds like the second poster, below, might be there just in case a store sells out and wants to inform customers. Thanks to everyone in the comments for logic-ing this out!

Due to high demand we have run out of the iPhone 3G S

The good news is there are more coming soon

Ask a member of staff for details

UPS Deliver Anyone's iPhone 3G S Today?

We've mentioned this before, but as anyone who's read our comments or seen the Twitter'splosion over it already knows, those folks who pre-ordered the iPhone 3G S from Apple have been tortured for the last few days with ever changing -- and even disappearing -- delivery dates. (Right Jeremy?)

From June 22nd to in-transit to June 17 to June 19 to June 18 to held-by-shipper to who-the-$%^-knows anymore, uber-iPhone lovers have been hitting refresh and yanking hair out almost every minute on the minute.

iPhone 3G S Early Review Roundup

Well, it looks like UPS did indeed deliver a few iPhone 3G S a tad early. Heh. And here's what some of the top guns in tech thought of Apple's newest handset.
