I got a iphone for Christmas, must say I love it so far......only complaint I have is I think it needs a pointer/pen for use on some of the keyboards etc like the Palms' have.

i have a iPhone. The only thing that sucks is you can't send or recieve pictures attached to a text message. When you get a picture you get pointed to a website that you have to enter a password and username to see it.

jail break it, and you'll find software that will allow that to happen.

Verizon is opening their network to any "compatible" device. The iPhone is a GSM based device. Verizon is strictly CMDA in the US. Thus you will get no iPhone joy on the Verizon network....


I have an iPod Touch. I've used jailbreak and I've got lots of apps on it. One great thing is that the majority of the apps are very small so there is still plenty of room for videos and music.

I have had an iPhone for about 3 months, really enjoy it.

My biggest complaints:
-Have to jailbreak it to get the functionality it should have.
-That motherfucking recessed headphone jack (touch doesnt have this).
-I can't change songs while it's in my pocket like I could my ipod

Fortunately the REAL dev kit is supposed to come out in February. When that happens, we shouldn't need to jailbreak the iphone or ipod touch anymore...

I've had my iphone for about a month and i love the thing. But i hate that i cant jailbreak it. I got one that had 1.1.2 OTB and for some reason everytime i try to downgrade it to 1.1.1 it never works. I always end up on 1.1.2. So i think i'm screwed. Thats the only complaint i have about it. As they are comming out with a video recorder app on the 15th of jan and i cant use it cuz i cant jailbreak my iphone.

Got an iphone for christmas and so far I like it. Only two complaints are wish I could use a pointer to click on items and the headphone jack. Also the battery drains really fast when I'm using wi-fi at home.

Yep. I did some reading on that. Fortunatley the firmware update is not required with the IPOt so alot of people wont have trouble with that untill the new 1.1.3 is jailbroken.
