Hey guys, well i finally bought my iPhone. Due to itunes being slow it took roughly 20 minutes to go through the process and an amazing 30 seconds for the actual activation part. I synced a whole bunch of content onto the phone within another 15 minutes also.
A few questions though:

It seems that the screen is inconsistent with touches. Sometimes i'll press an onscreen button and nothing will happen, requiring me to press it another 2-3 times before it executes. Perhaps i just have to get used to "hitting it right" or with a certain amount of pressure.

Another thing, how do i quit programs. After i'm done surfing with safari I would like to know that it isn't using up any memory or power. I always click the "x" and close all windows.

Other than these two things, everything is great. Email is AMAZING! Deleting messages is so quick that I can't imagine how people are complaining so much about this. Of course I don't receive 500 emails a day but then again, I have a "spam" email account and a second personal one. The speakerphone is plenty loud and everything is beautifully placed.

BIG QUESTION: Can anyone recommend a nice looking case that doubles as a holder AND has a pocket or something to hold cash/credit cards?? I saw something for the ipod that was called a something something folio and it had great little pockets for storing stuff.


Thanks for reading. I love my iPhone

You don't really have to "quit" applications. You won't notice a difference when opening all of them and using it or opening just one and using it. If you really want to "quit" an application, open it and hold the Home button for about 5 - 10 seconds until it brings you back to the home screen.

For the "touch" issue, give yourself a day or two to get used to it. If that doesn't improve, take it back to the Apple Store, or call AppleCare.

For the "exit", if you hold the home button for 10 seconds or so, it's supposed to quit the application. I don't think it really makes any difference, though.

For the case... I'd suggest this one:

I have the "side" as my second case, after a nasty experience with another style. There's also the "flip" there that might be of interest, but the "ritz" is specifically designed to hold credit cards and stuff.

Hey thanks for the quick replies and the great link. I looked it up and that's exactly what i'm looking for. The only problem is that it seems the pocket for the credit card isn't deep enough to allow a card all the way in, thus leaving the top edge to make contact with the screen once the case is closed...too bad...i was about to buy it before i watched the video. Thanks anyways...the search continues

Hey I just want to say thank you the flip2 case is exatly what I have been looking for. What I have now is more like a carrier then a case but what I like about it is that you can rachet it around to be vertical or horizontal. The flip2 case has that feature but also is much more protective. My carrier has zero protection and its a lttle awkward to take it out and easy to lose your grip on the phone. I have dropped it a least 3 times thankfully no damage but I wanted a more protective case. Also it looks like the interior pockets will be deep enough to slid in the whole credit card. I got mine on pre order and it comes with a free protective film. Cool.
