    Jumper! 1 Less Blackberry Junkie In The World

    Advertisement



    I did it! I have a New 32gig 3G/S-Series I-Phone, she is a beauty, and Charging right now- I have a couple quick Questions:

    (A) The Transfer of everything to the I-Phone, I Synched everything to Outlook from the Bold, on my PC, Im running Vista Ultimate- Should I transfer everything through ITunes when I connect the Iphone to my PC for the first time, or should I go through Mobile ME? Which is easier and less mistake free?

    (B) Mobile Me, their offering a free 60 day or 6 week trial, at the Apple site, is it the real, full thing? and also if you do the trial, does it delete the time from when you buy the Retail Version?

    Text Messaging or Instant Messaging, is there anything like the BB Instant Messenger? or is Beehive the best of the rest.? do they have a site that gives you an idea of how it works?

    Anything elese that anyone can suggest will be greatly appreciated. BTW, they say curiousity kills the cat? Meow, Meow, I went to several places today that I had nothing but hardships communicating with my Blackberry Bold, and it stated I had full strength 3 G signal levels- the I-Phone trounced the Bold- Absolutely crystal clear as a bell communications, How can that be?

    The Apple Store was a Zoo today, but they were really nice, I got more help and friendly help from them than I ever did from a AT&T Retail Store.

    They mentioned that I should learn I Tunes, they said the better you know I Tunes the more success you will have with your I Phone, are there any tutorials available for I Tunes?
    Favorite Cases, (With A Clip) any worthwhile accessories, heres one from me to all of you, WHO said you cant use a Stylus? This one works, and "if your like a chicken" you can "Peck" away on the keyboard, Is it fast, absolutely, I had it with me in the Apple Store, and before I could say Shazzamm, I had people all over me asking if they could try it- http://www.tenonedesign.com/stylus.php

    I would appreeciate any good input from any recent "Jumper", Hey Hayden and Gang, I couldnt have done this with out all of your terriffic help!

    Congrats!

    A. Plug the phone into iTunes and use the selection Tabs that appear for the iPhone to make your sync selections.
    I would use MobileMe for everything you can. Use the control Panel in Windows to make sure MobileMe is playing nice with your Windows software.

    B. The Trial is full features, The Start would be from the day the Trial expires.

    C. Beejive is an awesome IM Client and works great on the iPhone. I've been using it and love it.

    Yes, iTunes does an outstanding job managing everything for the iPhone. This would also include backing it up and Restoring it if you ever have to.

    Cases:
    Seidio
    Case-Mate

    Enjoy

    I love the capsule rebel case made by switcheasy.

    Don't worry about finding itunes tutorials, it's so easy to use it should click immediately. I only use it to sync apps to, so you don't have to use it for music and stuff if you don't want to.

    I hope that your early sucess with th 3G connection continues. That's the main weakness AT&T has right now, they haven't kept up with the 3G implementation like they committed to Apple.

    Made the jump last week! If you are a GMail user you should look into GoogleSync, it wirelessly syncs your contacts and calendar to GMail, and it's free! I use IM+ with push, it works great and handles lots of services including Facebook.

    Update the "device" section of your profile guys. We have soo many new iPhone and Android jumpers but many forget to update profile.

    We have to look into a way of making that easier.

    iFrogZ case shots. I don't have this case but have held a phone using the case and it does fit very well. The colors are brights and of course it covers the Apple Logo which many people like.
    The only thing I did not like about this case was at the bottom in the two corners it's not rounded like at the top. Seems different to me. The cut out around the volume control on the left side of the phone is also too wide. It's cut larger than on the Seidio case. It's noticeable when holding the phone.
    Web Site and can be found in any AT&T Store.
