 Anyone have the iPhone

PostSubject: Anyone have the iPhone   Wed Jun 02, 2010 6:45 pm

I have been thinking about getting a phone that does it all. Phone, internet, email, video, camera, gps, music. And this looks like the answer. Ideas? suggestions?

My girlfriend has it and pays a lot more than she should. Around 100 bucks a month, but that's only with 400 minutes. Outgoing and incoming too. With around 900 minutes she was paying $145. She has unlimited data and txting. Internet is nice to use on occasion, but IMO not worth the cost.

Just my .02. drunken

I know I will be getting rid of sprint for good. I am going with verizon after my contract ends in november. And by then they will have the iphone. The $30+ a month I will save I can get a data/text plan.

The iPhone is a hunk of crap. Its an over hyped, over priced joke of a phone. My friend dumped his after two months. Another friend did the same. There is few things it does well. For a lot less money, get a Motorola Droid. I've had one since November and its phenomenal. Its fast, its stable, it does everything I need it to do, tons of great, free applications. Plus they are buy one get one free at Verizon right now.

Ps, the iPhone coming to Verizon isn't a sure deal. Mostly because Apple doesnt want to make two versions of it.

I've had my Dingleberry for a month now, loving it. I use it for everything, phone, internet, email. It does it all well.

I have time to figure it all out. Which is good, because I am confused about phones, and services. I don't know half of what I thought I knew. scratch
Two of the service writers I work with have the iphone, and love them. I have been checking them out and love the way they work.

Had my iPhone for 2 years, love it! It is a little expensive, and it can get finiky sometimes, but I have beat the snot out of it and it's still going. Just bought the gf and her daughter one, they both love them 2.

I want an iphone but I don't want AT&T. Several of people at work have them and none of them have signal at work right in downtown concord. But they all still love it.

I have a crappy old Cingular Go Phone (s'pretty sweet brosephs...shyeah...) I bought at WalMart in 2006 for 25 bucks because they wouldn't work with me on replacing my broken $200 phone which simply disassembled itself in half for no apparent reason, just out of warranty. I said to hell with it, went to WalMart, got this thing and put my SIMcard in it, it worked.
I've dropped this phone off of a 4 story abandoned building before (onto dirt) and nothing happened, I kick it across parking lots to make people laugh, it fell in snow, fell in a bag of thinset mortar, I just don't care what happens to it and for some reason it is unbreakable. My buddy that works on tugboats had one so if it fell in the water, it wouldn't matter as much.

Still, people are telling me to get the iPhone of course, but I can't help but think it's just like how "Macs are better" when they're really just inconvenient and backwards... Laughing I know at least three people who've smashed them to pieces without being too crazy. My friend has some Motorola counterpart, a Click or a Droid or something and it seems a lot beefier and sturdy, and has the same things on it. Just like how everyone I know says their iPod is a POS and self destructs if light or air touches it.

As far as plans, I have ATT right now as a plan, I generally pay just under 60 bucks a month for my bill (I think I have something like 400 texts a month?)...but I'd like to pay less than that. I've never had too many problems but I still wonder if the grass is greener on the other side. Verizon is a little too "Big Brother is Watching You" for my tastes and I will never do business with them as far as cell phones if I can avoid it. Back in the day my dad had a pager with some sort of service (probably Airtouch) and it got taken over by Verizon. As soon as that happened, they sent my father all these threatening and rude letters about what "could" happen if he didn't pay his bill. He didn't even do anything! I've had other people tell me similar things about their whole attitude.
My dad said Sprint sucks, and 2 of my friends say Sprint is awesome. I don't know what the hell to think
