Because I straight up just don't want an iPhone. Honestly I do agree that it's an amazing device but it's just too much money. As a college student all I ever use my phone for is talking and maybe a text message or two. I read that the opening weekend for the iPhone wasn't quite as hot as it was supposed to be (even though it wasn't that shabby really). I think the problem with the iPhone is that, although it can do a lot of stuff really good, it can't do any of them great. It can play music, but it can't hold as much as my ipod. It runs OSX, but it is a very limited version and I already have my macbook in my backpack or my car anyways. It can make phone calls, text, and email, but so can my ****** ass free phone lol. It's nice but not worth the cash. I don't even konw why I made this post. i'm high.
