Good for you. I have an SD card in my Pearl and I have never swapped it out except when I bought a bigger one. Your point is a reach. Nothing more.

Actually, you are dead wrong. That aside, iTunes is more convenient to use than Desktop Manager, Windows Explorer or the Mac Finder. You spend your time how you like.

Guess what he uses now? A BlackBerry Curve 8330 and loves it much moreso than he did with the iPhone.
Well, you can walk in to a Batteries + store and have it changed out. While you wait. My brother's 1G iPhone (bought on the initial release day) needed a battery due to drops in battery life and that's what he did. He called ahead to make sure they had it and could do it while he waited. The guy did it right in front of him. $45 rings a bell but I could be a little off on that.

If your son is happier on a Curve then good for him. The iPhone isn't for everyone and if he is getting what he wants from the money that he spends then that is precisely all that matters. To him.

That's your opinion and you are entitled to it.

So Storm users are headed for failing screens? Hmm. Anyway. I've had my iPod Touch for over a year and a half. I use it all day, every day. Never a screen issue for me. It is exactly the same as an iPhone, just without the phone bits.

On the "manager" thing; my wife works at a Fortune 50 that has begun to allow people to have an iPhone on their Exchange server. The company only provides Blackberry devices, iPhone users have to buy them. And they are. Lots of them. This particular company isn't dropping their BES server, but they are liking the money they are saving from the iPhone users not being on it. Or so said the newsletter that my wife showed me. She still has a Blackberry on Verizon but March will be here before you know it.

[your opinion]Yes, iPhone is more a fad and fun device to use, but NOT a practical device or reliable device to use, especially in the work place. Been there, done it before.[/your opinion]

We actually agree on that one. I used to look on copy/paste as another weak complaint. I have hardly used it since installing iPod OS 3. Those that wanted it now have it.
