Actually, I think this would be the most over-hyped gadget, since it never even got into production

Anyaway, what issues? I haven't heard anything

I can't buy one now anyway because my contract isn't up with Sprint... and I'm not gonna pay the $200 to break it

teh iphone is a perfect example of the high-tech fetish "crowding out" the practical use of such a device. you try to cram everything in one device and a) your probably gonna get a ton of glitches, and b) you put all your eggs in one basket. what if somethings happens to your iphone? your basically ****ed.

you don't like having to go through a 6 step process just to dial a call? i thought that was the most innovative thing about the phone!



joolander, just google iphone reviews. some of the reviews actually show the cons. the sites that aren't on apple's payroll that is.

Plenty of people still are unable to activate theirs, we are talking days now people still aren't up and running. turns out you can have a video output like on the video ipods to play movies thru a tv, they made the headphone plug recessed so you cant use any headphones but apple headphones, the bluetooth is crippled so where you can only use it to talk on the phone, no bluetooth sync to pc, no bluetooth file transfers (pc-to-phont or phone-to-phone). No listening to your music thru bluetooth, only calling, ect

The only thing that bothers me there is the no bluetooth for music thing, and thats not even important. The phone I use now has th bluetooth for when on the phone only, and I don't care. I'm sure the activation problem will be fixed before I buy one (remember how the xbobx 360's launch got messed up? Well, they fixed it if you couldn't tell)

As for if I lose it or something, It's not like I'm just gonna throw away my iPod and phone I have now...

I looked it up on cnet and they gave it 8.0 out of 10. They gave my phone 6.5
