Thought this was amusing (although not necessarily in a good way). Went into the AT&T store yesterday to pick up a case. This is the same AT&T store I bought a replacement iPhone 3G from (I ended up toss my first 3G in the washing machine by accident). :/ Previously owned a 1st generation. In any case, I overhear the salesperson talking to a customer about phones. The customer asks what's the difference between a Blackberry and the iPhone. "The iPhone is a toy phone," the AT&T rep says. "Don't get me wrong. It's fun. But it's not for real work." Now, I've had Blackberries for years (I work for a major financial). They certainly have their advantages. However, I wouldn't say my iPhone is a "toy". On more than one occasion I've used it to VNC into servers, browse our corporate website, etc which -- while doable on a Blackberry, is a lot easier on the iPhone. I wanted to say something to the guy, but I'm not one of those people that likes to vehementally defend Apple products. I'm sure he was simply saying what he was saying to sell a phone that day (because they of course had no iPhones in stock). Still, I can't help but feel that this particular AT&T rep was a less than stellar "partner" for Apple. It's like if I went into a Toyota dealership and the salesguy said "Yeah, the Prius is nice. However, if you want a car that can do REAL work, you'll want a Tacoma." (Never mind the fact that the Tacoma uses up twice as much gas -- they don't have Priuses in stock anyway).
