iPhone

If it will replace my newer Cell Phone, old Palm Pilot, and old iPod then I'm getting one.

Thumbs up

The IPhone is too cool! I watched the demo and was blown away. Certainly the wave of the future!

Carol,
All digital will work fine near large cities and interstates. once you get off the highways you will rapidly loose reception. I have a palm treo 700. I like it. it works almost everywhere. get at least dual mode phone.

the phone has been delayed a couple of times. I would stay away from it for a while. I love apple products but I will not buy the first release of anything.

Thanks Michelle. You tell Brad he needs to rechoose. LOL I know where your boondocking picture was taken. I have been following along. How's the Verizon service up in the sky? I am not getting an IPhone too rich for us for now and the services required.

I'm with Carol on the wait. The price ($599 or there abouts) can be off set with a 2 year contract to some degree, but will certainly come down...maybe as early as Christmas '07. Maybe I'll get one for my birthday in '08 or next Father's Day-just 3 weeks apart.

Anyway, I really wanted a Razr when they first came out and finally got one for Becki. I like the phone, but I like the one I currently have, too. However, I really am not interested in so many of the bells and whistles that come with the IPhone. I have only taken four photos with my current phone and didn't like having to pay to down load them via the internet, I don't care to surf the net with my phone-that's why I have a computer and I don't want to surf while I'm driving for sure. I have never wanted my e-mail to follow me that close either. I just want a phone to make phone calls on. The planner/calendar function of the treo would be nice, but not mandatory so I'm back to the basic phone.

So again, I'll wait for the bugs to get worked out and the improvements to be added (you know they will) and the price to come down. Then maybe when the hype and hysteria is over I will get an IPhone when the price comes down to a level that I can justify paying for "just a phone". BTW, I just got my first IPod a few months ago.

I'm way behind the curve! And I'm OK with that.

Can your phone do this, or this, or this...

For those who think that the iPhone might be a bit too pricey, consider its capabilities and count up the devices and services you might have to acquire to have anything remotely close to this amazing device.

See three demo ads at http://www.apple.com/iphone/ads/. There's another on the way that shows the internet web browsing feature, in particular.

For me, it's not a matter of what it can do and what it cost to do them with other devices. It's a matter of what do I want it to do for me and what is it worth for it to do them for me. I have a PDA that I live by. I keep it in my Franklin binder where I keep hand written notes. I don't need a phone to do those things for me. Even though I admit I would be interested in merging the phone/PDA functions.

Surfing the net and receiving e-mail on my phone. Not interested. IPod features...I have them in my IPod and I have all of my favorite songs downloaded in my IPod and I keep it in my brief case so I have it when I need it...which isn't that often...I'm not a audiophile. I download podcast when I want to listen to them, but I don't even do that regularly.

If I wait 6 months I can get the phone cheaper, maybe with more features I won't use, so why bother now? I'm not saying it isn't a great phone with great features if you want them and are willing to pay for them now, but just like the Razr phone when it came out (IIRC it was $899 when it was introduced and now you can get them for free when you sign a 2 yr. contract) the prices will come down over the next six months and that is when I will probably get one.

Also, if I wait, I might be able to get one in a color other than white. I think white will show dirt too easily.

T-mobile

Have only had two services...
Verizon and T-mobile
Both were OK...

Coming back from Vegas outside of Death Vally we had a good signal on the T-mobile...I was shocked.
Looked all around for some sign of a tower...nothing
I have had bars when others have lost everything.
1000 minutes, all of USA, but cannot remember $$

I'm satisfied, but my honeybees are pissed.

Gunnerguy, (sorry, old Navy Guy)

Had Verizon for seven years. Both my wife and I and that the only phone service we have. Been east to west and had coverage almost everywhere. That was a few years ago so it's probably better now. Most of our F/T buds have Verizon so we talk "Free" when ever. A nice feature.

Sprint/Nextel has some really detailed coverage maps on their website now. You can look at just Sprint coverage, just Nextel coverage, or combined coverage. (Some new phones have both systems in them) Sprint Broadband (Aircards) has a roaming agreement with Alltel, so their internet coverage is quite good now.

Lightbulb Affordability !!

For those who may not think they can afford the phone or service ...

Just buy Apple stock before the Christmas rush ... cash out after it goes up another 50 points ...

Once you own the IPhone ... you won't want to be without.
And the Company that makes it, will have paid for it - for you !!
