my initial thought was to just buy a < $350 new lens.

What lenses do you currently have?

it seems to me that the 350D is still a whole lot better than my iPhone 4 as well as the Canon SX50 suggested in one of the answers.

Your Rebel will still take as high quality pictures as the day you bought it.  If you still like the results, then you're good to go.

Ignoring the lower resolution and limited ISO settings, do you think the 350D still compares favorably to modern cameras (all-in-ones, the 650D, the most recent iPhone) in terms of image quality, or does it no longer make sense to keep using it?

The 650D would be a step up in image quality and also allow more cropping (thus increasing your "zoom" factor).

It's also a more capable camera (better AF, processor, speed, etc), and would also be more fun to use.
