Got my phone stolen today; tried looking for it for 6 hours, but have since given up (have already done a remote wipe and suspended my account, so there is no way to recover it now). I'm stuck on a 2 year contract with AT&T, so I'm not going anywhere. I personally have been putting off getting an iPhone for as long as possible having disliked the original iPhone—but I love the iPod touch which I own several of. My since stolen phone was a Blackberry Bold 9000; it is a great email device, but unfortunately the model is almost a year old and quite frankly that's a bit too old. I have a $65 unlimited data plan that I can't remove within the next 10 months without incurring ETF; this means I'm in this predicament with a limited number of choices unless I want to get ripped off by AT&T even more. I have to make the most out of what I'm stuck with. These are my only choices if I do not want to have to pay the ETF: 1) Get another Bold (that's as good as they get). 2) Get an iPhone 3GS (this is only other phone I can get with the aforementioned data plan). Oh right I should mention, I would need to buy either phone unsubsidized. The only other phone I would consider is a Nokia N97, but to get that it would mean I need to pay the ETF + $700 for the phone (AKA ~$1000 after taxes and stuff). I know the iPhone is a great media device no doubt about that but now there are a few issues: 1) How is it as a phone? (call quality, etc.) 2) How many email clients can I sync with it at the same time? I know the Blackberry can do 10 plus the Blackberry email account and one enterprise activation (making it 12). I need to be able to sync at least 8 accounts (which is what I use right now).
