    Aggie, how quickly are you getting the iphone? Just because you're getting one, doesn't mean you have to leave the Stacks. I know a lot of us would love to hear what you think of the iphone.

    Lucky! (read like Napleon Dynemite)

    Seriously though,

    Hard to blame you - it looks like a really slick device. I like the widescreen movie playback feature. True imap email client rocks too.

    Are you already with Cingular? Do you know how they plan to price unlimited data? Same as now? Even with free phone, Cingular seems pricy to me.

    Also, I wonder how easy it is to type on the thing. Not much tactile feedback.

    And of course you'll become an iPhone pod-person devoid of any individual identity ;-).

    Cheers

    An Apple employee being able to send an iPhone to you for free? I find that hard to believe.

    Guys, he didn't say when his friend was sending it to him. Could be right when they come out.

    iPhone looks sweet and good for you for getting one (free? oooh, I am jealous). But the way I undersand, it only supports push email from Yahoo.. maybe I'm wrong? Also, I am thinking the touchscreen QWERTY keyboard would be weird (without textile feel). I prefer having real buttons to press with my thumbs... Still, it's a beautiful piece of art. But 8GB? I wonder how big the OS X is?

    Thats hard to believe considering apple kept the phone secret even
    from their own employees, so unless you are friends w/ Steve Jobs,
    Its hard to believe you.

    Plus, now that Apple is being sued over the iPhone name, they
    may be forced to change the name.

    Hmm, why are they being sued for that name?

    the name is a trademark of Cisco's IP Phone and they were going to make an agreement with apple but apple never signed the agreement. It will be interesting to see what happens. But I dont think I could give up my BB

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i wouldn't jump on the band wagon 2 fast if I were you this phone could be bug central to many negitive possibilities for me if you hit the screen by accident when its in your pocket your whole phone is done the insurance monthly would be as much as car ins can you imagine only paying 6 a month for a 5 or 600 dolar toy won't happen but anyone who is wanting this and willing to leave the family for it feels that way because your getting antsy due to the unreleased 8800 which I project will push the release date back for the iphone once apple sees what rim has been cooking in its lab.
    BB family for life

    Re: Ditching pearl for iphone

    I have been curious to know if the iPhone is really worth the price tag. A friend of mine is all hyped about them and he said "your blackberry just became a piece of **** floating in the toilet" but my blackberry was less then half the price of an iPhone and it fits my needs quite well.

    To me it seems like with the iPhone and most of Apple's products you are paying more for a nice GUI/ease of use. I personally would not spend the money on one but I am just wondering other then the good GUI/ease of use does the iPhone really offer anything that can't already be had for the price?

    Im not tryin to bash it, i think it does look like a pretty slick device but definetly more then i'd want to spend, and I dont think I would like the touch screen keyboard. I used to have an HTC wizard and i didnt even like the touch screen number pad on that.
