    1. They integrate IChat
    2. They add Microsoft Exchange compatibility that auto updates calendar, email, etc. I don't want to have to sync it, if i forget to sync it and I add a calendar date on my computer it doesn't go on my Iphone....BULLSH*T
    3. If the test dummies that buy it right away determine the keyboard is workable. I am killer at the double thumb typing method and rely on fast emailing and messaging for my business.
    4. They included unlimited SMS. I think it is BULLSH*T they act like the SMS feature is so amazing and give you 200.

    I am a huge Apple fan but maybe me and all of my apple fanatic friends are way off base from the general population?? Everyone I know is waiting a while to buy it to see if they get their sh*t together.

    Uhm... ask any European or Asian kid about the wonderfulness of SMS. I never use my phone to call, I sms people, and MMS. Could use e-mail, but a lot of people don't use that feature due to the amount of spam that you receive. I've had my same number for over 10 years, and I've never gotten a spam sms message...

    They have mobile service in Mississippi?

    Yes please do buy it so you can work out all the bugs on your own dime and when they release the new version in 3 to 6 months that is cheaper and works better I will get that, again, if they get their sh*t together. I rather not drop $600 + bucks to have an inadequate phone. It is amazing if it had basic features of other cheaper phones. Either way yours will probably be in for recalls most of that time.

    Spritey loves the asian kids!

    Hey Spritey, I hear you on the SMS, but I can tell you ask any sidekick user in the US, (which are a lot of asian kids) and they will tell you that instand IM works sooo much better than an antiquated technology like SMS. SMS is like a pager with make up on. 143 143

    Also for people that actually write more than LOL and ROFL, emailing is very important. I do about 100 business emails a day or more off my handheld. If you like SMS so much just keep a regular cheap phone. Why spend $600 for a fancy pager?

    You do realize that unlimited SMS are possible now, by paying AT&T money, right?
    I fail to see how this is Apple's fault.

    Pager With Make Up

    Yes, but SMS is so weak, they should give you unlimited to begin with. Why F*CK around with this and that. T Mobile sidekick give unlimited everything right off the bat. Keep it simple, and people buy.

    I thiink IPHone could be the most amazing thing, and could steal every market out there if they just get with the program.

    Do people in Mississippi have a funny bone?

    No REALLY? MISSISSIPPI HAS SERVICE???? WOW REALLY?. Of course there is service there. It is a joke, your ignorance shines through though. Congrats!

    I am from Cali, so lets see if you can make fun of me now and not be a baby, k? I promise I won't cry or think you are ignorant.

    Go buy your $600 two way pager. congrats.

    Dev Toaster is my slave

    Dev Toaster: I am glad you are buying one so you can be the test dummy and find all the problems before I buy mine in 3 to 6 months when they actually get this thing working properly. Being a Cingular customer and now ATT, I am a little nervous about them as well. They could barely handle the load after their big advertising campaign of no dropped calls. All the calls started dropping after that.

    love you,

    I like MB HOCKEY

    One person that isnt angry. Its not my personal blog, but maybe I should make one? Don't get me wrong, I want desperately to get an IPHONE but it has to have some standard features.

    But please still be my slave and test it for $600+ k? I am encouraging the sales so mine will be better. (and so my stock keeps going up)

    F**K that .... give me an iPhone without that B*T*H arse Cingular expensive plan. Give me Sprint!

    I will take it with all of its very limiting flaws and lack of flash support and limited storage.... well you can fix those too... give me an iPhone with 16GB of memory and everything the Treo has but better and portable iLife and iWork that costs $400 for the 16GB version on the Sprint network and I will buy one.
