Apple Delivers iPhone
..but how many of you are already in two year contracts when this ipohne comes out. is anyone breaking their contract to get this phone? or doing something sneakier??!!!
my contract with verizon is up a month before this comes out. this phone is tempting but i have decided no for the following reasons.
1. no 3g?
2.if i lost it i would kill myself!not only would i lose my cell phone but my ipod and pda all in one!!!!
3.biggest reason! CINGULAR! ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I HAD AT+T AND STAYED WHEN THEY CHANGED OVER. I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MANY DROPPED CALLS, CRAP RECEPTION, HORRID CUSTOMER SERVICE IN MY LIFE!!!!
i understand the gsm preference for those who go out of the states but I'm staying with verizon. maybe they have there problems but with them i can actually make phone calls with out bending into yoga like positions to get reception. i'm sorry i love apple , love ipods but cingular...dea...
about 3g, please people enough about this, 3g is a bad idea right now our network in the US sucks with 3g it hardly covers more than 10% of land, so its pointless, and the battery usage is going to be like 30min-1hour of talk time..screw that
and for the osx, jobs clearly points out its a full osx and apps are allowed to be downloaded to the phone so s...
This phone has a long way to go
this phone will run on cingulars sub par data service and does not allow you to download from i tunes directly to the phone, at lease if i read the information at apple correctly. even if you could however because of cingulars data service it would take several hours and waste a battery that you cant even replace yourself. uber inteligent.
now lets take a look at the UI on the phone. innovative and amazing yes? yes. if it works. im reminded of a simpsons episode (were sorry the fingers you have used to dial are too fat to obtain a special dialing wand pl...
1. this is rev1 device..the sync with itunes is merely a software update away - syncing via wifi would be fine - ala itv .. also its an ipod - you can plug it in like any normal ipod..and you can see how ha...

A message from my Cingular rep.

No Apple 3G + Nokia hypocrisy = two crass companies
As a Mac owner, and Nokia owner (6682) I'd be first in line to buy a 3G phone from either company that offered a good web browser and good sync operations with my home computer. Until this day arrives, may both these companies be damned.

They give the general American public what they deserve. A sub-par product that COULD have been great but is still priced as if it were a technological breakthrough.
Why bundle all the greatest ideas into ONE product if they can break up e...
Will the wifi work without subscribing to Cingular?
I would like to point out the obvious lack of 3g
You will see changes to it over the first months of its release. EDGE is fine for the bulk of what it needs to do.
at 500$ for 4gb and 600$ for 8gb
I dont think it will set world on fire, yet.
Verizon strips out too many features from their phones and you can't buy and unlock cdma phone.
I don't care what you call it. Allow me to use all features ...
8GB model will be 599 with 2 year contract
Do people really like the idea of no buttons?
Comparison to other smartphones
Besides the lack of 3G on it,this phone makes The Nokia Nseries look like crap.
But than it's just a matter of time when other manufacturers start copying just like they did with the razr.
Already on the front page on Cingulars website...lol
Besides that, phone looks cool, i wonder what the battery life will be like and how it holds up to being dropped and the typical cell phone abuse.... also will wireless phone protection be available on this device... so many questions!? oh well more to come eh.
Screw IPhone! Make this the iPod G6
I know people would like to integrate their pocket buddies but hey this would be a sick PVP and is this coming from THE iPod Hater....
This phone does everything.
Except feed, bathe and raise your kids.
