    Not on this one. Not without taking the phone apart.

    Like I said, I love Apple. I typed this on my macBook, I own a nano, and a Pearl.

    Im sure that there is a way to change the battery, but I dont want to find out the hardway. I would be severly discouraged to find out that I would have to send my only means of communication all the way back to Cali to replace the battery. Becuase in the mean time, I would have to buy another phone to replace it, and since the phone is gone so to are my contacts.

    If you go to boygeniusreport.com he had done multiple write ups about the phone, and you can get more information about it. Ive been watching the phone since the introduction and I was on the bandwagon, at first. But some of the things that I have seen about it make me leary and disinterested.

    Im sure that I could go on, but nah. I would rather see you make a informed decision than throw useless crap your way.

    I think it's at best an inconvienence. At worst it will be a deal breaker for heavy users. I suppose it depends on how long the battery really lasts the average user and how quickly it will charge. I've have a few smarthphones that would not last a full day on a charge but those were 3G devices. I've never had an EDGE device that couldn't make it though a day even with heavy use.

    Remember, the first Treo devices didn't have removable batteries either but it didn't stop those from being a top seller and an icon in the smartphone world. If the battery lasted me a full day to day and a half, I'd probably be good with it. (Spare car and wall chargers on hand would be a must though)

    One could argue that the lack of 3G and Wifi will go along way in sparing the need of a removable battery as the power consumption would be much lower. When those are incorporated into the next release, I think we'll see a removable battery.

    I couldn't agree more. Contracts, contracts, contracts... Plus, the touch screen would never fly with the dod.

    I've owned and used plenty of Apple products, and no way would I line up for a Rev. A Apple device. Particularly when reports suggest the iPhone's successor is already in the works.

    To each his own, but I'd wait for this one to shake itself out before hopping onboard this train -- particularly when no more than a couple dozen outsiders have had a chance to spend time with the iPhone.

    The Iphone looks good but your good sense tells you to wait for the 2nd gen. Just wait and observe and you'll be better off. That's what I'm doin cause it has to be a killer for me to give up my pearl that I'm typing one handed with right now! And don't forget that price! I'm still on a budget for my xbox 360 and that comes first!

    That depends on how "exclusive" the iPhone really is to Cingular. And what deal Apple makes with the carrier of choice in China. In the States, for the next five years, the iPhone is exclusive to Cingular. I can't imgaine that that would hinder any release through Asian and European markets after the US release. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for my gadget freak Brothers and Sisters accross the ocean.

    I agree homer, i think our 5 year deal with apple is in the us, we don't have a carrier over sea's so we really can't affect those markets.

    The phone doesn't have a sim card slot. Like the iPod it has the shiny a$$ syndrome. No sim card slot means that you cant buy the phone, keep it for years and change service providers. You wont be able to change service providers.
    I'm sure there is going to a normal 1 year warranty for the battery issue, there shouldn't be a charge to do a warranty exchange.

    Also i can't see how it's not going to accept a sim card seeing, as all of our products needs a sim to run. There probably a slot on the slide like the old Treo's. I'll have to clarify this tomorrow.
