Well, EDGE is *great* at email. No problems. However, I find the web and even the maps pretty disappointing. It's ok for that 1 time a month you *have* to find something now. Otherwise, I think the Safari portion isn't too useful, unless you're at home on wifi and then you have computer. For email though, iphone and edge are great, but that isn't exactly 21st century. I'm a little disappointed. I love apple stuff, but this thing is just ok so far.
