    It has changed my life, cleared up my acne and has given me confidence with the ladies. I recommend it.

    It's the single best piece of technology I have ever owned.

    I'm fighting the Babes off all the time...

    and though I have (2) iPhones and (1) Blackberry and (1) Motorola KRZR, with all the extras, my bill averages out to about $65 per person. That's acceptable to myself and the other three people on my family plan. Actually, the Blackberry is $29.99 data plan v. iPhone's $20.00 per month, so that's $10.00 a month I should shift over to the BB person!!! Get the iPhone and join us! :cool:

    I actually only gained about $3 on my bill when I upgraded to my iPhone. I dropped the $9.99 data plan, $4.99 for the 200 texts, and $2.99 for insurance (added it to my homeowners insurance plan at no additional cost), then added the $20 iPhone plan. Worked out pretty evenly.

    Being a current AT&T customer I wouldn't know, it took me less than 3 minutes.

    But I've heard it's pretty quick (half-hourish at most?) to port over numbers from other companies (typically).

    It's great, really changed the way I use a cell phone, PDA and iPod. Amazing piece of tech.

    I love it and actually saving about $30-$40 a month I was paying to Sprint. With that in 10 months it about paid for itself :)

    I love my iPhone and highly recommend it. I will give you one piece of advice before you purchase though... make sure you are aware of and happy with the features the iPhone currently has. Too many people have come on these boards and complained about the iPhone lacking something because they didn't do their research first. If you like what it has and it suits you, buy it and enjoy.

    Easy process. When you activate it through iTunes, just pick the correct option for porting your number. Although AT&T said it could take up to [however many hours or days they told me, I forget] for the iPhone to be activated with my number, I was able to correctly make and receive calls with no problems in about 5 minutes. Painless. I also made the switch from Verizon. Was the best cellular move I've made EVER, and will be for you too (provided the service coverage for both carriers is about the same in your area). ;)

    Yep, I've poked out one eye...

    so far! So, with my one good eye, I can "almost" see that paul17win is not one of those whiners, but a kindred spirit and a breath of fresh air!:cool:

    I love my iPhone. I am paying no more per month than I was when I was with Sprint and I have better service.

    If you have an AT&T Mobility store near you, they'll do it for you. Be sure to bring your prior phone number and account number. (I'm not certain if you could do it yourself through iTunes.)
