    My friend tried to show me her copycat Verizon phone, "Look, it plays TV. No really." I didn't say anything because I am not impressed.

    I had a phone that I could sling my TV to, and I never used it except to show that feather off once in a while. Unless there's an emergency and the phone still works, so what??

    The few shows I record are on my iPhone via EyeTV. Aren't we in the DVR age? She reminds me of the friend who bragged about how many CDs she owned. Of course she didn't have an iPod, making that bragging right obsolete.

    What are CDs? Is that something like Blu-ray Discs?

    I really don't get where Verizon comes up with some of its gimmicks. The only way I watch videos on the iPhone most of the time is stuff I have seen before and ripped from DVD. The fact that the iPhone literally is the best iPod ever made kinda trumps all that stuff. Anybody remember how long that ESPN mobile stuff lasted?

    One thing that intrigues me is this WebApp that has radio stations. It's a pretty popular one whose name escapes me. I tried it on the EDGE network and couldn't get it to work for more than 5 seconds, but it's pretty flawless on WiFi. If something like that works on 3G, satellite radio may die very quickly.

    :rolleyes: You guys just proved the saying that iphone users think they're better than everyone else.

    This thread was pointless.

    I think you're talking about FlyTunes.
    And it works fine for me on EDGE. I actually sometimes plug the iPhone into my car stereo and listen to it while driving around.

    AT&T has or will have soon mobile T.V.,... so with 3G iPhone it should be there.

    Howard is infantile. There, I said it.

    You my friend ared just as bad as your friend. iPhone is great but you know what? It has room for improvement. Though I ain't in american I am sure that this 'brick' is the same.

    Just shrug, say "yea that is pretty cool." and walk away and stop acting so full.

    And yes. I love the iPhone to death.

    Is there even the slightest hint of a point to this thread?

    yes but not all threads need a point. some people use forums to rant.

    he/she wants to feel better about about his/her phone. thats fine. let them. maybe if he/she expressed it was a rant it might have been better

    but i do agree on one point verizons UI sucks and it locks you into things you dont want. including mobile media.

    ps. GET UP AND GO
    GET UP AND GO

    oh i wish i had a sil80
