iPhone: So is anyone getting one?

I was seriously considering this but there are just a few drawbacks that turn me off.

Its GSM
Its ATT
Its ATT
Its ATT

and it is way to expensive.

However if you're getting one, I do want to know what you think of it. From what I've seen, the feature set of the phone itself is pretty kick arse. Also, ATT finally posted the data and voice plans for the phone and they are surprisingly reasonable. Too bad its GSM.

Anyways, you can find out what stores are actually going to have the phone by going to http://www.wireless.att.com/find-a-store/ and selecting iphone from the search options.

You can also check out the data plans here: http://www.apple.com/iphone/easysetup/rateplans.html

the Ishit is the most over hyped phone EVAR.


No full keyboard. Touchscreen shit has been out for years.

A smartphone runs circles around this.

It has closed development, meaning almost nothing from 3rd party.

The list goes on and on.

Did I mention its by Apple?

OMFG, ITS SO COOL. LOOK ITS TOUCH SCREEN. IT SLIDES>

Well, I've seen a few reviews now and the common theme, about the keyboard, seems to be that it is a bitch for the first few days but then becomes very easy to use.

Anyways, its not worth it IMO.

Why get a completely touchscreen phone. Grease and whatnot and most people that prob going to get it are going to be punk ass teennages that don't take care of their own shit.

A friend of mine, she just got the 8525 and it is pretty amazing. I have the 6700 and its bad ass. I am going to flash hers later with a better firmware, etc..

What do you think about nextel i930 smartphone?

I have one I bought ever since it came out.
I was actually thinking of just using my nextel for the radio & keeping the i930, & getting an iphone cause It looks I guess cooler... or theyve made it seem so.

My cell has internet explorer/excel/ms word/pdf viewer and other crap. I just figured the iphone would be a lot better/faster internet surfing wise than my slow crap.

Its not going to be fast and flashy as the ads show.

Well, Iphone is GSM, so youll have a completely new network.

costs 500$ plus caontract and if you cancel early, it will cost you 175. no getting out of it, period.

prob cuz everyone has one... kinda hard not to get something that is compatible with EVERYTHING... TV docks, car radios, personal stereos... ALL FOR IPODS ONLY (for the most part)

doesnt it all sound familiar? Windows? supprised Bill Gates didnt think of the shit... too bad it took him 5 years to come out with a bulky rebound...

I wouldn't buy a first gen product like that... And I agree its too expensive and it will never run as well as it shows, its the nature of the current networks. I do think apple did some very ingenious things with the user interface, and over all operation.

Also I'll bet $$$ that you are basically looking at the next gen iPod

Yea, I'd say that is the price point that would get me interested as well.

Watch out for the white screen of death. I heard something funny as fuck about the iphone today, it can't send picture messages, lol, and it takes 6 steps to make a call when the phone is locked, sounds awesome. I'll be getting an 8525 soon, fuck the overpriced POS iphone.

Well, I'm a Blackberry fan but keep my mind open to new possibilities. However, I have not remotely considered the iphone.

I always buy not so new technology. The one time I did not was with the Nano and I got burnt for it. 6 months later the price dropped, capacity went up and they changed the design to make it better. With the Iphone...

1. Its design resembles the original Nano. Easily scratched and as someone else mention finger/face grease will ensure it is nasty all the time. Cleaning it will scratch it and there are probably not that many cases out there for it that are any good.

2. I like to push actual buttons. Although that big screen will make a nice flashlight in the dark.

3. Waaaaay to expensive. That price can and WILL drop.

4. Not proven technology. I'll let the other peckerheads figure out all the problems.

5. Will never wait in a line for limited quantity products.

6. Even when it is matured, cheap and easy to get I'm not sure I'd buy one. Has no appeal for what I need a phone for. I need full integration into exchange, a good phone and a good keyboard. Might get one for the wife one day.

7. No external expansion slots? WTF.

Take care,

My '03 Sold.

Hell if I know. I'll see if I can find one on Ebay or something. I remember Don telling me that I was lucky to get one, because they were backordered for so long after the first shipments to the store, that Cingular stopped carrying them.

Here's a good review of the iphone too, pretty much saying it has a bunch of cool stuff, but some stuff is missing from all the other phones out now, no mms at all, etc.

I actually had the same gripe about my razor, and then Blackjack.

I can hear it very well, even driving down the highway with the a/c blowing. Funny thing is, my bluetooth is louder, too.

The pearl has done a good job of being a phone, and it receives email, takes decent pics, and the ability to change what a button does is very beneficial. I turned the push to talk button to my camera, since I dont use ptt.

The only dislike that I have had, is that the keyboard is not a full keyboard. I write email, text, etc with my phones, and getting used to the new design was interesting. It does learn what you type, and what words you use, to now I can type what I want to quickly.

Interesting. I may have to look in to those. I'd gladly give up the full keyboard though, for the smaller size over previous Blackberry phones. Those were like bricks.

As far as the iPhone goes...I'd buy it if they were giving employee discounts on it (30%), but they aren't giving discounts on this phone of any % to any employee at any level (not even directors or VPs). If I got the discount, I'd probably try one out for a few days and then sell it on Ebay.

i love my blackberry pearl and i dont think i would trade it in anytime soon for an icrap.

i heard that apple isnt allowing 3rd party apps for it either and thats what i love about me BB. I can find programs from opera mini to programs to customize the color of the pearl. i just dont see the iphone being very customizable.

As far as the iPhone goes...I'd buy it if they were giving employee discounts on it (30%), but they aren't giving discounts on this phone of any % to any employee at any level (not even directors or VPs). If I got the discount, I'd probably try one out for a few days and then sell it on Ebay.

Apple doesn't discounts to anyone. They set the market price and it stays.

So developers can use the Ajax web Kit 2.0 to develop apps for it. Visto is supplying an Exchange app for it. Currently it can only connect to Exchange using IMAP.

Don't hate it before you try it. So far it is the best phone I have ever owned. What it does, it does EXTREMELY well.

The glass screen does not get greasy as all. There was a scratch and drop test done buy some phone review site. They used a key on the screen and it did not leave a mark.

Weird, try the report bug thing, I reported one on my phone about the cookies not working on dfwstangs, and it was fixed the next day.

Hey Douche, Did you read anywhere in my post that said "I love sending picture messages to 90GT50's moms, the iPhone does MMS messaging great."

WTF does "in that case send me a picture message mean?" I said what the phone does it does it well.

I love the "optional" camera on the 8525

EDIT: and the awesome 4 hours of battery life and the many reports of constant freezing and dead pixels.

Why are you being a smart ass to me?

I'm satisfied with my LG PM-225. I'm easy. As long as the thing makes, takes calls and text I'm cool. Plus work pays for it. For $500 I'd rather buy car/motorcycle parts.

It's ok, don't cry that you overpaid for a phone that can't do normal shit that phones 1/20th of it's price can do. I messed with one a few days ago, and couldnt stand it, the keyboard isn't as bad as everyone was saying, but I couldnt stand anything else about it. I messed with an 8525 too, way better phone IMO, can do tons more, and is way easier to use.
