    Iphone - Is it worth the price ??

    I am planning to get an iPhone. I've got mixed reviews from some of my friends using this phone. I know almost all the advantages & disadvantages. Now the real question is, "is it not worth its price??"

    Decision is certainly yours but many satisfied BlackBerry users look somewhat scornfully at the Iphone.....however, many BB users also own Iphones and love them. Others, like me, are more interested in the pragmatic aspects of the cell phone and the few advantages that the Iphone does posess are relatively insignificant to me. If possible, find a friend or anyone willing to let you play with the Iphone for some time. Also, keep in mind, ATT has a 30 day policy whereby you can return the phone......perhaps that is your best option. Personally, I think of the Iphone as more of a toy and the BB as a tool......you will soon tire of a toy but tools seem to last a lifetime......good luck on your choice.

    Jumped on the iPhone wagon about 3 months ago and while it does have it's flaws, it does so many other things right.. Used a BB for the last 3 years and loved them but in my opinion, the iPhone is so much more versitile.. While the BB is great with email and running apps in the background was nice, the iPhone is just more entertaining in the long run.. There is only so many times you can play Brickbreaker before it gets old.. I too was very hasitant about changing but 3 months later, I couldn't be happier.. If you do get one, don't try to compare too closely because it won't work.. Treat it as a totally different phone and you'll be happy with it..

    I'm a blackberry user to the core, but the iphone does have some appealing features. I'm a firm believer that "worth" is what you are willing to pay for it. You have to decide if the iphone suits your needs. If so, price may not be the deciding factor.

    Hmmm, that will be an interesting Pod Cast. Seeing that I own both I can't wait to hear this new episode.

    i switched from a blackberry to an iphone a couple months ago. i had my pearl for almost 2 years and i miss stuff like bbm and typing with a real keyboard but the iphone has been so much better in every other area (thanks to jailbreaking). the price of the monthly data plan is the same as i was paying with my blackberry and i was able to get a refurb 8 gb from att for only $99. plus im able to get pretty much any app i want for free.
