    Anybody else got one? I've had mine for a few months and I love it. I don't work near a computer or WiFi, so this iPhone keeps me connected to what's going on when I'm at work with nothing to do. BTW, I'm a crane operator.

    i bought an iphone clone (CECT P168+) It pretty much does everything the iphone does. Plus, it has video recording. Tons of people mistake it for the iphone......

    I would have, but I need my 3G speed.

    Always working on the stereo, painted the front skid plate black to match the truck, debadged , toy tech ultimate lift kit, light racing UCAs, ARB bumper Looking into a supercharger and new exhaust.
    I have one and I love it! I do wish that it was G3 enabled like the new version is going to be. But, if I am near any open wifi network I can always connect to it and get great speeds.

    My only real complaint is the viewmymessage.com crap :mad:. Why can't this thing just recieve MMS messages like everyone else? That stupid proxy site is always down and the access code is a PITA to have to write down and retype just so I can look at a stupid picture. I have to tell eveyone to just email me pics instead of txting them to me.

    I think the next iPhone will be 32 gigs and 3G, but the battery life will be the questionable part. 3G uses a lot more power.

    I think the iPhone takes great pictures too. When I e-mail people pictures they are usually surprised that the picture was taken with a camera phone.

    I've got the iPhone bluetooth headset too. It works seamlessly with the phone. The headset charge status, and connectivity shows up on the iphone's screen. Plus you can charge them together in the same dock. It's compact and not as gawdy as some other models.

    BTW, on my iPhone I've got all of season 2 and season 3 of The Office. 100 pictures, and about 800 songs. Oh, and about 10 podcasts. I love podcasts. I'm kinda new to the iPod thing, but I find that iTunes is very to use. I've got a PC, but I think my next computer will be a Mac.

    We could not get the iphones up here until around Christmas and when they came in they sold out quickly. (That is when ATT purchased Cell One.) Also we can't get them on a business plan, which I have my current cell on, so I don't have one. Yet. The people with them love them.

    I did get the ipod Touch back in September. When I saw them I figured it was time to jump in. I love it but wished I got the 16 GB one. I like surfing the web sitting in the airport. TW is one of my favorite sites. When my truck comes in I will get an interface between the ipod and the stereo.

    Also currently a PC user but may go to a Mac when this one dies.

    I love my iPhone. In fact I'm typing this with the iPhone.
    I love the map function and have thrown the Thomas guides
    in the trash. Someone put a lot of thought into this phone.
    Anyway, the edge network is plenty fast enough for most things
    like this site. Works great. If anyone is thinking of getting one, you won't
    be disappointed.

    I don't have an iPhone, but I have a 30GB iPod, a 8GB iPod Touch, an iBook G4, and a new Intel based MacBook Pro (and old 4GB and 8GB iPod Mini's).

    I love my Macs. My wife is addicted to her iPod Touch.

    The 1.1.4 iPhone update is out now. It just fixes some bugs, and I think it's also preparing the phone for the real big update that's coming up, maybe this week. This new update will probably allow the iphone to work with 3rd party applications. Then there will be all kinds of cool programs popping up for the iPhone. Yay

    The customer service and support with the iPhone is great. They put out software updates very often. They add new features, fix bugs, etc. If you have a problem with your iPhone just take it to an Apple store. They will usually fix it right there, or give you a new one. Try doing that with a Nokia or Blackberry. They will ship your phone back to the manufacturer for a couple weeks.

    I wouldn't mind having one for a lower price.... However, not until some other carrier has them. I switched from Cingular to Verizon because of their piss-poor network, and now it's ATT so I can't imagine it's any better. Fucking Cingular would drop my calls ALL the time. I'd be sitting on my porch with full signal and the damn phone would drop to zero signal, drop the call, then go back to full just in time for me to redial and continue the conversation. That would happen 5-10 times in a 20 minute conversation. As soon as I moved back to NY I dropped them and switch to Verizon. I had Cingular for at least 4 years, and don't miss them one bit. At least now I KNOW when I'm getting out of range of a tower and will lose signal. It's the same locations every time. None of that full to none back to full signal in 10 seconds bullshit I had with Cingular.

    I have over 100gigs of music too so I want something bigger. Like maybe a 160gig iPod at some point. That rules out an iPhone or iTouch until they get a clue and offer the same capacity.

    That's F'n funny. I have a Blackjack II, and love it and it only costs a couple hundred. It's already way more capable than anything I need. I'm really not interested in the iPhone.

    Do the iphones have voice-actived calling yet? It's the one feature they didn't have when they first came out that's pretty important to me. I hate having to root around in the phonebook.

    Apple fan all the way! Apple has a way more stable OS than PC and a laundry list of other things as well.
