there are a lot more reasons to dislike the iphone besides the fact that it's on a competing carrier. half a grand + for a pretty looking phone that's still technically in beta stage and is lacking in a lot of basic features is an insult. that's a pretty big negative.
But Apple's intentions with the iPhone were not to match everyone else's phone on the market. Of course it is missing basic features that we're used to. That's the point! Apple set out to reinvent how we think of a cell phone. The key word there: reinvent. It's not supposed to compete with every other phone. It's supposed to redefine the idea of it. If you don't like it, cool. But to say it sucks because of lack of features doesn't work.
