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.

-a file brower

All windows based phones have issues locking up and freezing just like a windows OS on your computer. The easiest thing to do most times is to backup all your files and format the phone just like you would a computer. The iPhone has glitches sometimes but not nearly as much as anything windows.

No joke!

I had a 730 on verizon...kept it for two years before switching to at&t and getting the moto Q9. It was a great phone...I just missed out on some features because I kept it so long.

Windows Mobile 6 is much better and much more user friendly. I think you'll like it much more than going to the Iphone.

Copy/Paste not supported yet, but maybe down the road with software update. FULL MS Office will be available with iPhone 2.0 software with release of 3G iPhone. File browser will be available with MobileMe with release of new iPhone. You'll love the ease of connecting to your Mac. No brainer switch if you ask me.

In response to your questions.

-Copy/paste Yes. I have heard the new iphone is to do this. (Also the new 2.0 release as well)

-Full MS Office Unknown. However, there could be a software that would have MS Office like features after the release of the app store or MS might just release one. (I ...
