Hey, This is my situation. I am a student who is very very unorganized and would love to finally have a device that syncs well with my mac. the iPhone was a great thing for my situation because its not only a phone but it will help me be organized because i can input homework assignments, meetings and other things i need to keep track of and then every night sync everything. I know the iPhone is locked untill activation, and im willing to pay a little (~$100) more to be able to use it sans service for now. What i want to do is buy the iPhone now (to play with) but not activate it with service (i know you wont be able to use anything thats why im posting for ideas) then come school year use it as my planner, ipod, and web broswer, then finally when my verizon contract is up in feb 08 just sign up for an iPhone plan and go from there. So if anyone has any ideas on how to do this, or any other way i can have a small planner (thats digital) that will sync with iCal let me know. -Daniel P.S. I tried to use a verizon PDA with Missing Sync for windows mobile, it was to buggy for me and failed to do anything 75% of the time, so thats out of the question.
