I bet if it came with yarn we would be more interested in it! With a screen that large they should at least include gauge support or free pattern help 1-800 service or SOMETHING for goodness sake!!!!

Why spend all that $$$$$ on a phone? I know I sound like an old fogie but I just need a phone that I can make and receive calls on. We didn't get a cell phone until Oct. of 2000 because we were delivering some of Jerry's artwork to a gallery in NYC and we wanted to make sure we wouldn't be stranded if the car broke down on the NJ Turnpike, and even then we only got 1. We didn't get a 2nd phone until after the attacks of Sept. 11th 2001. Wow I guess I am an old fogie. We need a crotchety old man/woman emoticon

I was just reading that to change battery the phone has to be shipped to Apple. Charge is 79$ pluss shipping. It will take about 3 days. For that time you can have Iphone loaner for a low price of $29:P:rollseyes:

i've got a treo too, and was really upset when it didn't work out of the box with my macbook otherwise i like it. its just not droolworthy.

and it does have a qwerty keyboard. its a touch screen one. my friend brooke took about a day to get used to it, but assimilated rather quickly to touch screen qwerty

I like the idea of the iPhone in a sort of ephemeral sense, but really, I don't want that much technology in my hands at once. Just having a cell phone, iPod, and laptop makes me feel too....connected. And not in a way that makes me feel whole or positive.

OMG, I'm beyond old fogie--I think I've gone Luddite

i wants one badly but it won't happen for a very long time, since I have a perfectly functional iPod and I just upgraded my phone last summer.

I want one sooo badly, but I am going to wait until the price comes down or my contract is up with stinky Verizon who doesn't have the iphone.

Also, it wasn't APPLE that chose the carrier, the iPhone was offered to other carriers and they didn't take them up on it. Also, why all the Apple hate? Really, what have they ever done to you? Microsoft is a giant, anti trust violation just waiting to screw you and they have been screwing you for a long time. Apple has been creating quality products with excellent warranties (I know, because they replaced my computer FOR FREE when the screen had faint marks on it from the keyboard). Try getting Dell to do that.
