Default Steve Jobs and his damned plot to sell more iphones

Please Login to Remove!

So I have had it with my iphone and switched to Blackberry. I tried to update my iphone software to the 2.0 firmware and ended up rendering my phone useless. I would have called apple support but no....my phone was useless. To add injury to insult I ran across this cartoon while trying to find information on how to fix my phone startuptoons.com/2008/07/14/bricked-iphone-20/

I think that the 2.0 upgrade problems were just a ploy to get users to come into the stores and buy the new generation phone. Screw that, I went and picked up my crackberry and will never go back.

Welcome, enjoy.

At least RIM will tell you up front, "we're about to get you" and you will know it.

What a mess AT&T had on day 1 of the new iPhone. I had friends that waited forever and then went home with a phone that wasn't activated- told to activate on-line later in the day. What a fiasco!!

This whole thing about iPhone is such a scam and I just can not believe that FCC and others are just letting it happen. Even Apple got slapped in EU but here it is just too much.
I know most users in US are not that educated when it comes to what they are getting into. I wish people change their behavior of getting device thru carrier.
