Just out of curiousity, why do you need changeable memory cards when you have either 8 or 16gigs worth of space?

And MMS is so over-rated, IMHO. Send an e-mail. Big whoop.

Listen, I'm no apple fanboy, the iphone has a few drawbacks that just won't let it compete with other smartphones out there. The inability of copy/paste and reliable office apps is holding this phone back from greatness. The only other feature I'd really like to see that is taking forever is turn-by-turn nav, but this is peanuts compared to the awesomeness of the rest of the features. The apps on this thing are getting downright incredible. They are really showing off the ability of the iphone's features (i.e. GPS, accelerometer, touch screen) where it blows me away.

This phone is pretty much the amazing.

The Dude is correct.

I got my wife and I one a while back. I liked it but was not overly impressed. As time went on and new apps came out and google and other websites improved there mobile versions... I have grow to love it.

My wife uses it more than I do. Using google docs is a nice. There is no edit yet but viewing is great.

the wife will call and say can you stop by the store?
We keep an online gdoc that has:
Costco
HEB (groceries)
LOWES/HD

in it... and if I am there or she is when we look at the doc on our phone and shop away.

Anyway... I think it is worth it.

Another example. We are going to a christmas party tonight. I was asked to bring some christmas music. I am bringing my iphone and stream a christmas channel from Pandora radio (they have a sweet app for the iphone) ... works like a charm.

PS.......

The post was a joke. I wasn't thinking of getting a Iphone.
I'm sure they are good.

I'm kind of anti iPphone and I don't really know why. I'm the IT guy at my office and three people have now switched from HTC to iPhone. I get a lot less questions on how to do things so its made my life a lot easier. But they don't do anything with their phones except email, phone, calendar and the occasional picture.

That being said I wouldn't have one for myself. I'll take the HTC.

I think I want one. The price is still a bit ridiculous, especially if you don't want a stupid contract.

yeah. pretty cool. only drawback is the keyboard is only available in landscape mode.

i would probably trade my iphone for a g1 that will work on att.

i have a couple of problems with the iphone.
no cut and paste. wtf, wtf.
No arrow keys on the keyboard. Only the stupid little loupe. My big fingers aren't so great at the letter-by-letter scroll. Give me arrows.
Removable memory/battery. I have 100gigs of music. Rather than plug and synch to change, why can't I just swap cards?
I have 3 email accounts set up on it. let me just have a page with all three in boxes. Why do I have to scroll 4 pages between accounts?

it does rock for pandora, web browsing.
