    Well, why doesn't she want the iPhone? There has to be a reason.

    If she won't switch, get her the Storm. I'm sure she'll love that.

    But seriously, just get her a Blackberry Bold or something, since she doesn't like phones that work.

    There are other phones that work that aren't produced by Apple.

    My brother just got the HTC Touch Pro/ HTC Fuze (Whatever you want to call it!). Its a really good phone and its good for texting because of the slide out keyboard. It got a touch screen, and 4 buttons..its like a better G1.

    I recommend that you get your wife a couple of tin cans and some fishing line! And get your gurlfriend the 3G White iPhone... LOL :p

    Lol @ the storm :p. But he's right, if she's not for the iPhone, definitely get her the Blackberry Bold, an excellent phone with GREAT
    reviews lately, and if not that, maybe the pantech duo, doesn't come in too many "pretty" colors though.

    If she doesn't want an iPhone and loves texting maybe

    This: http://www.wireless.att.com:80/cell...?device=Pantech+Slate+(C530)&q_sku=sku3050240

    Or This: http://www.wireless.att.com:80/cell...e=Samsung+A767+Propel+-+Blue&q_sku=sku3030226

    Or Maybe: http://www.wireless.att.com:80/cell...msung+BlackJack(TM)+II+-+Red&q_sku=sku1140069

    If you want her to change her mind, perhaps take her to the store and let her play around with some other phones and then let her play with an iPhone. She may be more likely to accept an iPhone if she sees how bad some of the other phones can be. The links above are actually pretty good, but have nothing against the iPhone. Hope this helps!! :)

    What kind of phone does she have now, flip or candybar? If she likes it, I would recommend something similar. For flips, I like the Motorola Razr2 V9x. Good luck.
