    WOW. Talk about timely. I am going later today to look at a new phone and was leaning towards giving in and getting an iPiecea sh*t. {grin}
    Now, I'm going to look at the Nokia!
    Thanx, meander!

    Funny-but not true anymore...

    I run terminal emulator software and can control my servers at work-I can take video. I can use any mp3 as a ringtone without charge. MMS messages work on the newer iPhones. Voice dialing, voice commands and IM are all available as well.

    I love my iphone... it really is much more than a phone.

    best app for it: Drunk Dial NO!! I can set up any contact and those numbers are blocked for up to 72 hours!!! LOL

    I mean, I get annoyed at apple fanboys. But, really? That shit is from 2007, the information provided is no longer true, and it compares it to a phone that no longer exists.

    Can we next talk about how the Napoleonic Code totally PWND the Magna Carta?

    Ok, so I'm now an official "iBot"....just got the latest iPhone and trying it for 30days. So far....fancy stuff....but most of it I don't need or use.icon_rolleyes.gif
    It most likely will go back and get traded for the Samsung Solstice...


    BTW: it was an early Xmas gift.

    To be fair, it is Maddox after all. It's his raison d'etre to make predictable contrarian screeds about popular things.

    I thought that as well-then I started actually using it and all the features and now I love it. It's great knowing where I'm at, not having to carry an iPod, being able to find any store, restaurant, etc without having to place a call, track my workouts, read my book via the Kindle app, play Flight Control when I'm bored, connect to my computers at home when needed from anywhere, have an entire history of text messages that spans days/weeks or even months, skipping voice mail messages I don't want to listen to, watch porn on an airplane... you know... the basics!

    ;)

    Yeah, what ever happened to the basics? Why do I have to tap 4 things to get the G*damn keypad to make a call?!?
    I've got to hit the little round button that is the same color as the rest of the front, slide to unlock, tap the phone icon and then I have to tap the icon that looks like a keypad!!!! Sweet Jesus, what is the world coming to? icon_rolleyes.gif
    And NO I am not techno-challenged. (I was learning BASIC & writing If-Then commands when most of you were just a dirty thought in your Daddy's mind!)
    I just like things simple!! icon_idea.gif
    I got a PHONE to make a CALL foremost, and then I'd be happy to tap non-existent keys to get to my music, my GPS...etc.....About as silly as that frakking BMW command center......icon_neutral.gif

    Oh, and by the way...it won't sync with my brand new Plantronics Voyager bluetooth!


    Now where did I put that box & booklet so I can pack this sh*t up....

    Since it was an Xmas gift, I've decided to try this iPhiecea (the "h" is silent) sh*t awhile longer, so as to not offend the giver.....but odds don't look good. icon_neutral.gif

    I simply can't understand the appeal, except for snobbery, that causes you to use a cellPHONE <--emphasis on the word phone....that is NOT a user-friendly phone.

    How the hell would you ever call 9-1-1 in a real emergency, like a fire or flood or when someone was shooting at you? Yell "time out! I need to remember how to dial my iphone!"??

    It helps to have a friend show you the ropes (so to speak) with the phone.

    And if you are being attacked I think the official answer from Apple is to throw the phone at the attacker-they will be so amazed that you threw an iPhone at them that they will go after the phone and give you an opportunity to escape.

    I have the Droid Eris by HTC for verizon and it has a lot of the same features as the iPhone but it's way better icon_biggrin.gif

    I think I hate the iPhone b/c I don't like overhyped trends that everyone jumps on the bandwagon for and b/c I always see ppl constantly playing with their stupid iPhones and never actually using it as a phone. Gives ppl more time to be rude and ignorant

    So many iPhone haters on this thread!

    If you want simple, you want a cellphone not a smart-phone. Understand the difference.

    Let's face it... it's largely a matter of preference. There is a reason the marketplace is flooded with cellphones and smart-phones -- there is not one out there that would suit everybody's preference.

    Honestly there is no need to bash iPhone owners just because you prefer another kind of device.

    To Jmuscle33, the post above me, your "rude and ignorant" comment made me laugh. Be careful about throwing rocks in a glass house...

    I don't hate the iPhone!! I just have no use for the damn thing! I'm not trying to orchestrate the takeover of an international business, nor do I need to know where I am GPS-wise every damn second of every damn day as some seem to. Besides, I don't play video games! To each his own.
    But to call it a 'smart phone' is an exercise in oxymoronic-ism at it's best. Call it "a handheld device that plays games, tunes, maps, compass and oh-by-the-way, you can make calls on it, too."

    Just got the LG Xenon. Much better phone, IMO.

    Hahah GRINDR. Classy... there is no better or more versatile phone than the iPhone. Nor is there one that is more user friendly, less a 60's rotary.

    Care to define "smartass?" Is that also an oxymoronic-ism?

    The iPhone is not meant to be a stand-alone phone, nor is its main feature meant to be a phone. It's a mobile device with phone capabilities, but it’s a mobile device first and foremost. You don't have to be snippy about the fact that you're using something that contrasts with your needs--it's as though you're wearing red heels in a snowstorm and blaming the shoe designer.

    As a mobile device with phone capabilities, it’s the top of the class, and everyone knows it. Say what you want about random phones mass-produced by LG, HTC, or Motorola, but those companies focus on building a large variety of phones, which dilutes their ability to focus on a single product and make it phenomenal. The iPhone is the only such device Apple builds, which means it gets the company's full mobile attention, and as such, they can focus on making its software better.

    The problems that developers for Android (the Google-designed operating system that all the new smart phones, like Droid, are installed with) are facing is that all these different devices run on Android, so it's hard for a software developer to make programs that work and look great on a tiny screen as well as a larger screen.

    That all being said, AT&T is a shit network, but since I barely make phone calls anymore (I have over 4,000 rollover minutes from the past year, and my plan only has 450 a month) the iPhone is the perfect device for my needs.
