    $200 cheaper? There has to be a way to get this money back

    Any and all new high tech devices drop in prices. Why are you complaining? You wanted the iPhone you bought, now you are complaining that Apple owes you something. Don't be silly. This is how things work. You buy a house and the next month the market falls out and your neighbors gets a...

    Problem with getting e-mail not automaticly

    I could never get Yahoo! mail to check consistently. Sometimes it pushes just fine, other times hours go by, even though the default is set for 5 minutes. And sometimes it just sit, and sits and sits and tries to connect, but never does. I finally gave up on Yahoo! and switched back on my .Mac...

    New Feature? Or just previously overlooked?

    But I have found after deleting from the iPhone if you don't remove it from iTunes it will sync it right back to the phone for you.

    Do we need to be worried?

    Nothing to see here, move along. And not to spoil it for everyone else, but google is a search engine basically making tons of money off ad revenue. They are no threat to anyone computer company at least not for a long, long, long time.

    What warrants a new iPhone on the spot or repair service?

    The Perimeter Store is my favorite. Great service and really close to where I live. Although I bought my iPhone from the NorthPoint store on the first day since I thought the lines would be shorter there.

    One thing that increases battery life.....

    yahoo push does save battery, however I could never get yahoo to push on a regular basis. It would work great for a few days then it would quit. I finally gave up and just went back to .Mac and checking every 15 minutes. From my Treo I was used to charging it everynight, so the battery life...

    What warrants a new iPhone on the spot or repair service?

    Don't really see how the cost of something relates to the type of service you should get for something, well maybe if are are spending *ALOT* of money, but $600 isn't really that all that much in the greater scheme of things. Which of the Atlanta stores are you planning on heading to? I have...

    SMS correction feature

    If I am understanding you right, the answer is no. The iPhone give you only one suggestion that you can either take, ignore or backspace and start over. Of course I have found that I have to backspace all the way to the end of the previous word including the space between the works to get the...

    CNN: "The Steve Jobs Master Plan: iPhone hacking"

    I seriously doubt that Verizon was ever really an option. If Apple did go with Verizon then they would have 2 produce 2 different iPhones. One for the USA market (CDMA) and one for the rest of the world (GSM) this just doesn't make much businesss sense. I think the leaked stories of verizon...

    Were is the address book?

    Wouldn't it just be easier to add all your contacts to your address book (Apple) / Outlook (PC) and then not have to worry about it? i don't think there is a space limit or limit on the number of contacts. But that is just me.

    Usage Menu under Settings

    First off, I never turn my iPhone off. I have never turned off any cell phone I have had. Second I put in in the dock every night, to charge, no matter what the battery level is. Rumor has it that you should not let it drain down and then do a full recharge as this is what can cut battery life...

    How can I 'Live Blog' using iPhone?

    Is this the update web gallery button that only appears on a few users phones and not everyones? Also with flickr it is free as are the blogging sites it uses. This would be more useful to none Apple users or users with iLife '08

    How can I 'Live Blog' using iPhone?

    Flickr can do this. Actually if you have a flickr account you can set it up to send images and text to several types of blogs. Just not sure which ones at the movement and too lazy to log into my flickr account to look.

    Battery Life On First Gen iPhone

    You are are 100% correct. There are so many things that effect battery life that it is impossible to compare different iPhones. Unless you have 2 iPhones that are in the exact same location doing the exact same thing the entire time. Then you will have a true comparison of your battery life.

    Can reception be improved with a software update?

    I doubt a software update will do much for reception. I would guess that reception is a product of the antenna type and location. Perhaps the way you are holding the phone in your hand while talking is blocking some antenna coverage, not really sure since I am not sure where they stuck the...

    20GB iPhone! I am PISSED

    Exactly. Problem with pretty much all tech devices is that as soon as you get it out of the box, it is out of date as a newer model is out and has more/better features. You can either keep waiting, and waiting and waiting until the perfect device comes along (see problem #1) or be happy with...
