    After people grab this phone up and start hammering away on it, what do you think will be the most stated complaint about the phone? Messsage Boards attract more negative posts than positive posts, as people want to vent. Just curious what everyone thinks and maybe take a shot at predicting the future here!

    - service (no 3g or not really that fast)?
    - their monthly bill?
    - lack of memory (internal and external)?
    - plastic back (scratches too much)?
    - camera?
    - physical design of the phone now?
    - app store (apps are junk and/or cost too much)?
    - battery life is unsatisfactory?
    - same things that were wrong with version 1 (copy/paste, mms, bluetooth,etc)?


    I'm going to lay my money down that the most frequent negative comment we read about here after the release will be.......

    the same things wrong with version 1 that apple didn't address. :eek:

    I am actually thinking the phone (as in hardware) is going to be nice. I just can't imagine apple creating a cheap plastic feeling phone. It should feel pretty solid I hope.

    I am going to go with software complaints (MMS, Bluetooth, etc).

    It's not a complaint, but more of a want (front camera with Video iChat).

    I would definitely say that MMS & Cut & Paste are at the top of list. I know it is for me which is why I'm going back to the Curve :rolleyes:

    Good call, I did not think about mentioning that one. I wonder if anyone that reads all these will talk themselves out of getting one :D

    Like you said about more Negative than Positive.....
    I believe people will complain about all of it.
    And some people will rant about how great it is.
    And most will just argue.

    Lack of A2DP

    I think everyone was expecting that the 2nd generation iPhone would support Stereo BT. I mean is it not the greatest Music Mobile phone ever??? Well anyway that was the deal breaker for me. I'll just stick with my rugged, better looking, slower 1st generation iPhone.

    I agree totally on this one. I also think folks will complain about the scratches on the back.

    wow, you think you're clever huh? i said what do you think will be the MOST STATED COMPLAINT.

    "All of it" would entail an infinite amount of topics to complain about......ahhh, nevermind. you just are one of those people who LIKE to be difficult in life and think you're smarter than everyone else for it.

    very well, Scooterman has casted his vote as "ALL OF IT". mark it down for the man.

    damn thing isn't even out and people are speculating about everything to complain about it?

    How old are most of you to care about something so superficial as a plastic back (that anyone has yet to hold and test for themselves) that could be scratch prone?

    I have almost talked myself out of opening day for the simple fact that early adopters most of the time get burnt....even with Apple products. so I might have to contain myself for a month or so and see what all the feedback is.

    I would ponder to say that one of the other things that will be griped about is the lack of external memory capability. That has been mentioned a few times, but not a lot, but I know just yesterday that inferior portion of my iphone got it hard by a small time little flip phone that offered high capacity cards....

    I then said "Dang, your right....but can it do this :D" and rattled off the numerous features that my iphone could do :)

    people will complain no matter what is released, applies to anything, not just an iPhone, people just like to complain and are never satisfied,

    there are people of all ages, but I know that there are also a lot of folks that just plain like to keep all their things perfect with no scratches. It is not a bad thing or a good thing, but there are a lot of anal people out there. It might not matter to you, but to others it will.

    I personally would have liked them to keep the current back but the way I see it the thing is going to get scratched regardless, it will not make it less functional, but it will be a eyesore to some.

    I'm 23 and so I'm a very superficial, shallow, hollow person and I don't want a plastic phone.

    How old are you, TrunksGoku???

    some people should take better care of their stuff really.

    I had my iphone from release day up until about a few weeks ago when I sold it.
    Aside from light scuffing of the chrome the thing was very new looking. I think people should just take better care of their gadgets.
    I wasn't even careful with the phone either i handled it like a phone shouldve been handle and it was in great condition. I have no reason to even worry about the new iphone either.(scratchwise)

    I'm 27 but if i worried about scratching my phone I'd never appreciate it enough to use it. I'd take personal steps to make sure it was handled daily with care. Am i worried or will I complain? Probably not. To do so would detract from it;s usefulness. It's a phone, it's meant to be used and replaced within a year or 3 down the road when a sexier better iphone comes along.
