    Obviously the iPhone is lacking some things and certain conectivity that the original iPhone had. However, do you regret buying the iPhone 3G? All of the things wrong now like the buggy software, sluggish apps, crashing, underwhelming 3G can all be fixed in good time I believe. How do you all feel about your latest purchase or soon to be purchase.

    I sometimes wish I had gotten a black one instead of white. But other than that I am happy.

    LoL @ OP!

    Mine's awesome, I love it :D Reading that post you'd think it were as buggy as, say, a Nokia S60 handset.

    No remorse. Only delight and, occasionally, awe. :)

    Awe as in when your battery dies 3 hours into the day when you have only talked on the phone for 20 mins?

    the only reason I would return it is if Apple didn't support it. They do, I feel it's shortcomings and bugs will be addressed so nope, no remorse whatsoever.

    You guys are lucky that have iPhone 3G's.. I try everyday for that perfect Black 16GB and no luck. Tomorrow I WILL have it lol, I must.

    Hopefully my phone is perfect when I get it and have a good 3G connection.

    I love love love it. The only thing I regrad is not taking better care of my original iPhone as they still sell for hundreds of dollars on eBay.

    That's the thing about well made goods - they cost a lot but they hold their value.

    Zero remorse. It's exceeded my expectations in every way.

    That's good that all of you still love it.

    However, do you love it because it has zero problems and is a great device or do you love it despite the problems that you have encountered (such as sluggish apps, crashing, etc.)

    I'm with the crowd on this one ... I love my new iPhone. The battery does suck, though. I just bought a Kensington mini battery pack to avoid the scenario noted above.

    I don't have any remorse over the purchase. I decided last January when Steve announced the original that I would wait and buy the 2nd generation version, and it's been a planned purchase ever since. there are times I get frustrated like when an app causes the whole phone to crash, but I do have hope that it'll all get straightened out.

    No problems here.

    With all respect to those having problems, the problems you read about here are experienced by a minority.* A vocal, angry and legitimately pissed of minority, but a minority nonetheless.

    Remember, AT&T does give you 30 days to cancel your contract if you're not happy with the phone, so if you buy it and do have remorse, you're not stuck.

    *By problems I am referring to the iPhone itself. Not the activation glitches, nor MobileMe.

    As much as I disagree with Apple releasing their 2.0 "beta", and the lack of proper instruction to NOT drain your battery in half of day. I think overall, I do like 3G very much. I think of it as a potential more so than what it is now. But truth be told, if Apple ran a poll and gave us the decision to make, would any of us really rather wait few more months for 3G and 2.0, or just take it for what it is NOW?

    That's almost exactly how I feel. The 2.0 firmware needs work, but I'm happy to have my iPhone. Having had a 1st generation iPhone I'm confident Apple with improve the firmware. No remorse at all!
