3g network size

I have verizon and I was looking over vzw's high speed area compared to att's and I got to tell you att is weak. I'm not saying that to dis att or to brag but a 3g iphone doesn't really even make a difference when your 3g network is almost non existent. It will really only be cool for people in big cities!

Already on contract?

So what's the deal for those of us who already are on a contract and want to purchase this phone? I keep reading different things some saying that you just have to up your contract and pay the new prices and others say that you will have to pay a lot more than what they will be offered for? Any help is much appreciated! Very Happy

I want to switch from Windows Mobile

I currently have a Samsung i730 running WM5 that really pisses me off. Constant lock ups and corruptions. Since I have a Mac anyway, I figured I should look at the iPhone and with iPhone 2.0 software, I have to say I'm impressed. However, does anybody know know if/when the iPhone will get the following things:

-copy/paste
-FULL MS Office (like on my Windows Mobile phone)
-a file brower

Things Just Keep Getting Worse For The New Iphone

1st there was the announcement of increase in data fees, then data will no longer include SMS. Now Apple will not allow OTA music downloads as promised...

Source Engadget: http://www.engadget.com/2008/06/11/iphone-3g- details-firmware-2-0-on-june-27th-no-ota-musi c-downl/

Meanwhile, Apple's cash cow won't get those OTA iTunes music downloads that were being heavily speculated on in May. Word on the street is that record labels are -- wait for it -- still holding out for those upped premiums, or that AT&T wants a cut of the action, which Apple is reluctant to hand over. Of course, AT&T wanting their share of that revenue makes good sense when you realize that the telco is taking a major hit on the sale of these devices -- a hi

CONTRACT UPGRADE

QUOTED............

Note: When the 3G device launches, all active postpaid customers in good standing with a 2G iPhone will be eligible to receive the qualified upgrade pricing for a 3G device regardless of service tenure. (Customers that would not otherwise be eligible due to tenure will be made eligible at launch).

BE MADE ELIGIBLE AT LAUNCH,IM GUESSING THAT MEANS REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOUR AT IN ANY CONTRACT WITH ANY PHONE ON JULY 11TH YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO PURCHASE AT 199 OR 299 AND SIGN ANOTHER 2 YEAR CONTRACT,ATLEAST THATS THE WAY I UNDERSTAND IT!!! WHAT DO YOUALL THINK?

200 SMS IS INCLUDED!!!!!

http://blogs.zdnet.com/Apple/?p=1843 »

According to this site 200 sms txt messages is included in the "Voice Plan". This is a little confusing now. Does that mean when we sign a contract we also have get a new plan also stated in he link provided or do we just keep the existing plan and just pay $30 dollars extra a month and get the 200 txt messaging?

This is my remedy for the iphone upgrade issue..should work

there may be a work around to all of this upgrade discontentment. I have this idea that people who want the 3g iphone and currently have a non-iphone headset only have to activate a new sim card in a 2g phone and put the iphone data plan on their account. This will do two things.

1: Automatically update your contact when they reactivate with a 2G iphone
2: Automatically make them eligible to upgrade to the 3G iphone.

If i recall correctly the Iphone was the only handset that you can upgrade to without being the the contract "sweet spot" By using any iphone and upgrading your account you should be eligible to upgrade to the new 3G iphone with not issues. You should be able now to skip the soon to be unfavorable non commitment price w...

iTunes help please!!!

How many computers are you authorized to use w/your iPhone? I wanted to transfer the music from my phone to iTunes since my laptop is fried! But if I'm left out of the mad rush of people buying the new phone, I'll transfer my music to another computer, making it number three. Will that exceed the authorization number? Also, will I connect my iPhone, will all music transfer to the computer and iTunes or will it only be music that I've bought on my phone, meaning that I've lost all music that was on my old laptop that is currently on my phone. Sorry this is so long but I appreciate your help in advance!

Outlook Tasks

Everything I've seen so far on Exchange sync shows mail, calendar and contacts, but no mention of tasks. Anyone know the status?

Have the guts changed?

One of the things I'm most curious about... has the processor or cpu memory changed? Is anything about this phone's hardware better besides the new radios?
