Apple isn't stupid; the iPhone will be available from all carriers at some point in the future. Most "fancy" phones, like the Razr, are limited to one carrier at first, before they become widely available. (Remember when all phones were carrier exclusive? )

I really, really, really want an iPhone, but a) Nothing could make me switch from using Verizon, and b) Nothing could induce me to buy a 1st generation Apple product. By the time the iPhone is no longer AT&T exclusive, many of the bugs will be worked out, and the price will have dropped. I also theorize that battery kinks will have been worked out, and the hard-drive space will have increased-it's pretty paltry compared to an iPod.

I like it because I DO carry my iPod and and phone around with me everywhere, and it's annoying. I'd much rather have the one device.

IMHO the iphone is a waste of money, it's not upgradeable, and to be honest, too much technology packed into one thing. granted having the all in one device is nice, but what's the point when the learning curve is too high?

Though, BostonBecca, in regards to having Dell replace a machine because there were marks on the keyboard, you're right. Though why replace the machine, when they can replace the screen, they will do that, if the machine is still in warranty. I know that for fact as I used to work for them.

When my Dell desktop went into a coma, Dell sent a technician to my house to install a new motherboard. Which is why, although Macs are so much prettier, I just ordered a Dell Xps to replace my 8-year-old laptop, which still works fine. For that kind of service and longevity, I can live with Microsoft. :rollseyes:

a) Laptop
b) Dell's basically suck at everything. You might disagree with me, that's fine. I've used them: laptops and desktops and I have never had so many issues with them freezing, being slow, and generally taking forever to do anything. I wouldn't pay one single dollar for the best Dell you could provide.

This is probably a clash of cultures between Mac users and non-Mac users like you see all over the place. All I can say is that we are converting you "others" and I am so glad. My entire family has been converted just by seeing how cool and well functioning my brothers' and my Macs are and many of my friends have been converted as well.

Btw, my Mac has NEVER, and I mean not once, frozen on me.

I am done posting about this, cause honestly I my Mac and if you don't, cool.

The iPhone rocks.

Okay, I've had my phone about two weeks and I gotta say it IS the coolest thing since sliced bread. It is true that I'm a techie-geek (I own an ISP and am able to buy yarn by selling bandwidth!) but have to marvel at the technology.
