Opening pics on the phone?

Forgive me if this has been covered, but when a pic attachment is sent, is there a way to open the pic right there on the phone? I try to touch the link and log in, but the safari says "safari is unable to open". Thanks!

Thinking about getting iphone, but (help)

I need a phone primarily to recieve email.
At the store I was advised to get the iphone over the blackberry bold. I am afraid b/c I heard that there are hidden costs to getting the phone such as with billing, etc. The guy at the storm assured me that there weren't any, but I would like a second opinion. Has any one experienced any unexpected charges from usage of the iphone.
Thanks

Frozen Screen after calls?

I am at a loss. I have had a Iphone 3g for a while now. I have traded it in for a replacement now three times. What seems to happen is whenever I get a call (although not EVERY time, just a decent amount) after the call is over I go to hang up and the screen is black and will not come back. Despite my best efforts it takes powering the unit down and back on to get it to end calls. With this being the third unit I can't seem to imagine that it is three faulty phones with exactly the same problem? Another symptom is that the phone will take pictures of nothing, AND pictures of its own screen (like a screen shot)

It is in a carrying case although it is a case specifically designed for the Iphone, but it being in a case may account for the p...

Finally

I finally got me a Iphone 3G. I still have my VZW line until I am sure I want to keep the Iphone but it has only been two days and I must say that so far I am really happy that I got it.

If anyone has any suggestions of applications or games I should try please let me know.

What's next for the iPhone....and a question about data plans...

Has anyone heard what the next step is for the iPhone? I'm considering buying one, but I'd hate to do it and then a new version be released within a month or so (perhaps larger capacity?).

Also, I have one of the old Nation 1000 plans with 1000 Rollover minutes per month for 39.99 and I have no interest in changing that plan for an iPhone. I know with the first-gen iPhone, you could add data to an existing plan for $20. I had heard that you could do the same for the 3G version for $30. Still, I noticed that AT&T is marketing iPhone-specific rate plans now that include the data, but no actual separate data plan for those of us with old plans that we wish to keep with an iPhone. Can I keep my current plan and simply add data for the ...

iPhone Download-Things to Know

In order to download music to any smart phone it sometimes requires conversion to a format that can be read by your phone. Using freeware may introduce all kind of ad-ware and viruses to your media device. Once infected it can be a major problem or at the least difficult to remove. A good digital media download site will generally offer the conversion software with its member packages.

Downloading pirated material is expensive if you're the one who gets caught. However tempting Free is not safe and sometimes costs you a lot more in the long run. If you do manage to get the product delivered for free its rarely good quality and almost never filtered ensuring what you get is legal.

Another thing to consider is the download speed ...

Dropped Calls?

I have heard a lot of complaints about dropped calls, even in a strong coverage area. Is this true? I am with Verizon Wireless and am thinking of switching to an IPhone with ATT. I have had a few isolated calls with VZW, but not many. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Email in general

I'm a little disappointed in. I'm hoping they will restyle it a little. Half the time I go to send an email I get an error message saying "the connection to the outgoing server "smtp.aol.com" failed." The other half of the time it takes a good 3-5 minutes to send.

The email syncing for receiving messages is a little crazy too. After having a blackberry and it's FANTASTIC push email, I'm underwhelmed by apple's email capabilities.

Not trolling whatsoever, almost everything else about this phone is spot on, but the email is definitely irritating.

Does anyone have any advice about how to fix these issues??

iPhone 3G tethering w/laptop w/o Jailbreak

I browsed a couple of pages here and didn't see a thread with this title.

So is it possible to tether the iPhone 3G with a laptop to use for Internetz access? I've googled this query and everything points to having to Jailbreak the phone. So is there a way to do it w/o Jailbraking?
