    is you shouldn'tt buy a phone and put yourself into a 2 years contract, all for its non-phone related functions.

    when similar iPod were to be released soon, some ppl will regret this thing,

    IMHO, anyway, pretty sure will be overwhelmed soon.

    well its a fair chunk of money to spend, especially on a phone, so you'd hope people don't buy it just for the non-phone features.

    An iPhone MAY eventually get WiFi, once Apple works out downloading directly to the device. I don't see it ever having wireless data, however.

    just to remind ppl be careful, its $2000+ for two years afterall.
    I understand, but
    1. city wide wifi is in construction in many places
    2. do ppl really need to be online 24/7?

    What is $2000+ for two years?

    The phone is $500 or $600 and the data plan is $20 a month.

    That is ~$980-1080 for 2 years.

    You don't count the price to use the phone. Everyone has a cell phone and pays for cell phone service.

    That is like saying my cheapo SLVR costs me $1600 for two years. If that is the case and the iPhone only costs me $400 more than bring it on, it is a huge bargain.

    You need to compare apples and apples not apples and kumquats.

    lol, you need to be little bit careful when u makes statement.

    dont you think u make it sounds like a user only need to pay $1000 in 2 years?

    don't you know that there are ppl out there who doesn't own a cell?

    don't you know some ppl using cell phone w/o a contract?

    your calculation is interesting, guess only you can do.
