No, it doesn't = junk. Be honest. It's a very, very good phone. Just not the right phone for everyone, and everyone's particular needs. Just like any other phone.

It also has a new 2.1 update now, so maybe the problem is fixed.

What I really wish Apple would do is to wait off on the iPhone release until the point where their firmware is 2.1 (recently). Apple has a unique fan base that gives unconditional love, and I think that they'd rather wait than have a rushed product.

I'm not really sure what release you're talking about... I haven't heard of the next iPhone they're going to release yet... I don't know a lot about technical issues, but I think a lot of their firmware problems would probably go away if they could do the data compression thing BlackBerry does.. I also think too many people bought the phone and all tried to use 3G at once.. Maybe they should let carriers other than AT&T sell it!

It's a fair phone.
It's an OK e-mail device.
It's a great iPod. Like the iPod Touch.

I get it now. Sorry, slow... Yeah, I agree, but I don't think they could have predicted all of the problems that were experienced.. 2.1 fixed a lot of the problems. Oh, well.

i like the iphone for some things and my blackberry for others. for the most part i don't find any features on the iphone that don't get satisfied with my blackberry. as has been said time and time again it all depends on what you are looking for and wanting in your wireless device. the only real advantage that i see between my pearl and an iphone is that you can connect to wireless networks, which can be done with other types of blackberries just not the pearl. if i really am in need of a fast wireless internet connection for any reason i would probably have my laptop with me anyway as this would be the device i was using for anything that needed to be done at the speed of 802.11...

gqstatus05.

I would suggest you stop spamming the forum with your image there. And watch the language. Consider this a warning.

..... "And watch that language" is an imcomplete sentence in case you didn't know. I'm not spamming anything because this thread is talking about an iPhone. The picture was obviously iPhone related or I wouldn't have posted it.

Get familiar with the definition of spam before you accuse me of it. Thank you.

Mr. English PhD., I suggest you study grammar and spelling and forum etiquette before posting.

Your attitude is immature and not welcome here.

It's actually NOT an incomplete (imcomplete? WTF is that?) sentence. English has a feature called an "understood subject" so it would be, "And [you] watch that language." It's perfectly acceptable.

I'd let you get a free one and you'd better hope you knock me out the first time. I live in New Jersey by the way in case you're feeling up to it.
