Pros : beautiful screen , alot of storage space ( 16GB ) , reliable operation , great internet device , nice camera , and beautiful to look at ... lets face it its sexy

Cons : Horrible signal ( in 3G only ) , no MMS , horrible battery , no video , screen gets dirty very quickly , touch screen is nice at first but then its annoying , my screen was slightly yellowish , keyboard too sensitive and sometimes typed words i didn't want , and did i mention no push email unless u get MobileME or a Microsoft Exchange Account ( which to me means only that account is push )

I would also like to say that watching movies / music on the iPhone is awesome but i couldn't judge it too well because my battery died extremely quickly ... way quicker than with other 3G devices like the Blackjack 2 or AT&T Tilt. And to finish it off i wanna say that it is a nice device and to everyone that has one and loves it your OK in my book but i will stick with Blackberry.

Thanks for the review. I was supposed to get a free 3gIphone which may or may not happen. In the meantime, I would take a Bold in a NY minute, but I may be grayer than I've already gotten if I wait for that. I'm trying to be patient. In the meantime, everytime I play with an Iphone, I find the touchscreen to be somewhat unresponsive and the keyboard a little rough to get used to. I've read over and over how you have to give it time. Do you have a comment on any of this?
