    Yeah I figured that. I'll just wait until June and get whatever new one comes out. I'm just sick of Verizon screwing me over with GPS on my blackberry tour and I have to use google maps to find my location plus I only have like 15 apps on my Blackberry but have like 40 on my ipod touch.

    Dude don't you know you won't get 3g on your iphone anywhere, you will constantly drop calls on AT&T's useless network?

    Another person who can stay on Verizon's old and weak network/phone selections and that's good because we will not have another iPhone wannabe clogging up our AT&T/iPhone network...I switched bc Verizon's phones suck, their network is old, and the reason they have better coverage now is they are the only ones on their network, as the world is GSM, it will be interesting to see if they were on GSM and had an iphone what the complaints would be. They dictate to their phone vendors what they will allow on their network, they just started allowing phones with Wifi, pathetic.

    There's a lot of Kool-Aid on being drunk by both sides of the spectrum in this thread.

    Actually, the hilarious thing is that there's only one side in this thread.

    Goona is well known as the biggest ATT and Apple fanboy around here. He was clearly trying to be sarcastic with his 3G comment.

    So all we have right now, are people mistakenly attacking their own.

    Wow. That is some real dedication. As much I like Apple products, are you sure that an iPhone would be the right thing for you right now?

    Do you have enough money for food and rent?

    I cannot talk about my compensation because it is a combination of salary and bonuses and the amount must remain confidential but I would never own an iPhone if I could not afford it easily.

    You Got fight for your right to Party

    Yeah The iphone is great, i currently have the 32GB 3GS my second one i lost my first one and paid the $760 twice because i do not want to renew my contract with At&T until i see whats coming out in 2010 , The iPhone has a great resale value so i did not mind spending the $760 the first time around but when i lost my iPhone a few months back i just had to have it my iPhone back all most cried but no tears came out !:cool:

    yeah sure it drops calls which phone does not ?

    I get 3G service most of the time

    I'm 19, still live with my parents, go to college, just pay 2000 a year for car insurance and also pay for college books. I make over 7k a year as part time but that's not anything worth bragging for. The way I see it, I work hard enough and make enough money for the iphone why not just get one instead of salivating at Apple Stores saying I wish I had one.

    Clearly anyone reading it without knowing him would not take it as sarcastic.

    Humm... dude, not cool. Your experience =/= OP's experience or entire network....

    Also, add the equivalent of 90Milion BlackBerry users on Verizon's all so powerful network and watch in crumble to the ground... just saying, the wireless EM spectrum isn't infinite.

    Good move! Verizon can screw it especially with their new extremely high ETFs and phantom fees.

    Also for the fact that they chose CDMA instead of GSM and waited until now to do something. The bright side is that now with Verizon on a GSM-type standard (LTE), the US will no longer be an outcast in terms of cell phone networks, well other than regional CDMA and WiMax. Bah, its getting too late and I bet none of this actually made sense.

    I work 20-25 hrs a week, and I am on the basic plan, with 200 text and only paying $60 a month, of course I do get 20% off from the place I work each month, so I just put $20 on my phonebill a week and not all at once and can still afford rent and food.

    After seeing commercials and stuff. I really doubt it. AT&T's exclusivity ends in MAy I believe so they may have an announcement in June.

    Wow, maybe a little delusional? Verizons network can't handle the load that the iPhone would generate. My Blackberry has a rough enough time as it is on Verizon. They may have more coverage than AT&T but the quality of their network sucks!

    The only thing from me stopping from getting an iphone in June is no physical keyboard. I had an LG Dare and that sucked for texting, and I have the blackberry tour now and i'm real fast with that but I wonder how fast I can go on the iphone. I guess when I go to the Apple store on fifth avenue this weekend i'll find out.

    Yes, test it out.
    Cant compare the LG Dare touchscreen keyboard with the iphone.
