I won't get one because I cant have it on my dealer line and refuse to go back to the EDGE network. Also me store doesn't sell them which gives me a great reason to hate.
But saying that its designed so well it doesn't need EDGE is ridiculous. Thats like saying you have such a well designed computer you dont need broadband, dial up will do. What I am looking forward to the most about the iphone is all the dumb old people who are getting it to use as a PDA then they find out its the worst PDA ever!!! Then they can come buy a BB or Windows Mobile phone from me or I guess a Treo. When they make a iphone with 3g and 3.5g capability and possible has a removable sim card and battery I will consider getting one.
