    I find being without an iPhone for a month has me experiencing withdrawal issues.

    Daily I used to be able to do quick google searches for answers to dumb things that would pop into my head.
    Earlier today I saw website scrawled into the seat of the subway... instinctively i reached for my pocket only to be disappointed that my junk of a samsung flip phone was there.

    Dont get me started about T9 texting :mad::mad:

    How'd the hell did I live without this simple little device?

    That said though, it IS just a phone. :eek:

    5 days 5 hours to go...

    It changed my view of GSM for life. That's about it.

    Back on CDMA, where I belong.

    Maybe, maybe not. I have no other GSM network to compare against, but against CDMA (VZW) - in NH, MA and ME - yeah, not feeling the love.

    I sold my phone a week ago, and haven't used any phone since. Only thing that sucks is that i haven't been able to text or call anyone... but it doesn't matter i'm at a family members house doing work.

    When I was on vacation in Canada last July, I was checking MySpace on WiFi to find one of my "friends" saying in a bulletin: "Mike's not home! Pool party!" I came come to find 30 beer cans, a home-made bong, a bra, and other assorted things in my pool. $3,700 in damages. All was settled in court in November. I wouldn't have seen the bulletin if I didn't have my iPhone. Not really "life changing" but it's close to it.

    mrat93: WOW

    Anyways, the iPhone has changed my life. I never thought I would be using email and the internet so much. Google Maps is a huge life saver and I always look forward to going to the city knowing that I have it all in my pocket. Music combined with a phone with great internet and loads of other things to come, I couldn't ask for more. Well I could ask for video recording, but I guess that's a long shot.

    I think this should definitely be Apple's next iPhone ad.

    "And if didn't have my iPhone, I would never been able to take my so-called friend to court. Thanks iPhone!!" :D

    Like in the guided tours... the title of this thread should be:

    "How has iPhone changed your life?"

    iPhone is our friend, guys, not "just a phone."

    The iphone gave me the experience of being robbed for the first time.

    The iPhone has made me stop buying a paper. It has made me use the web in every day shopping to check reviews/prices. It has made me think of my phone as an information source rather then just a communications device.

    It hasn't changed my life at all. Damnit all, I'm calling Apple tomorrow to see if I can get a replacement.

    I actually submitted it to Apple when they were looking for stories for their commercials. I never heard back.

    Ever since I've used Safari on an iPhone, all other mobile browsers feel like I've stepped back into 1996.

    I wouldn't say "life changing" but my iPhone performed like a champ when I needed it while on vacation. My friend, who sings the praise for VZW, had to admit that the iPhone is a cool phone and VZW doesn't have anything to compare to it.

    Back on topic: my phone bailed me out a lot over the past five days. I needed addresses, phone numbers, checking our email, restaurant reviews, online surfing (hotel charged a surcharge for Internet usage), etc. I gotta say that I am absolutely enjoying my phone and am plenty satisfied with this model, so like a previous poster, no 3G for me:D

    The beauty of mobile Safari, the awesome entertainment/connectivity/communication covergence factor, and the unparalled UI aside...

    I've owned 5 Palms, 2 Clies, various pocket organizers, and even a Newton. I tried to keep a schedule using those devices, but always ended up resorting to paper because their input methods were never fast or accurate enough, and their sync capabilities limited.

    Thanks to the iPhone, and its iCal integration, for the first time in my electronic life, my schedule is organized.

    I think the iPhone has definitely done for phones what the iPod did for portable music. They're both game changers.
