Hey energetic crowd,

Are there any first time cell phone purchasers reading
any of these threads?

The other day, I saw a comment from an industry
executive saying that anyone who wants a cell phone,
has a cell phone.

Just wanted to let the statistic hounds know that
among the iPhone droolers, I’m among a likely
small number of the population that has never
had a cell phone.

Ever.

So, the iPhone will be my very first cell phone
purchase.

I’m 47, Male, use a Dell computer with
Windows Vista Ultimate.
My occupation is in a mature industry repairing
electric motors (used in industry to make all
the junk people buy).

A few people have teased me that I’m going from
a tricycle to a Porsche. I merely view it as a product
I feel moved to purchase for what it’s advertised,
and promoted to be able to do.
So, I like the idea of not having any previous
experience with any other product to compare the
iPhone to.
If anything, my measure of the product will be the
experience endured acquiring it, for I do plan on
being at the head of the line having taken both
Thursday, and Friday off to plan, and strategize
accordingly.
Having recruited my 20-year-old son to help
this old man, I guess I’ll be buying two.

Good for you. I'm also 47 and think this is the perfect purchase for you. Go ahead and order MS Outlook 2007 so you can sync your contacts and calendar all from your Dell computer.

Enjoy!

I agree, good for you. If the experience is half as good as Jobs says it is I think you and us all will be quite happy.

yep, MS Outlook 2007 is on this machine already.
Thanks for the "heads up" on its possibilities in using
it with the iPhone.

Enjoying the forum,

Then you're in GREAT shape for syncing your phone. All you need to do is put in all the information for your contacts (family, friends, businesss associates). You can all their phone numbers (home, cell, work, fax), email addresses, birth dates, and family members. You can also sync your Outlook 2007 calendar with the calendar on the iPhone.

You're set up to get the most out of this device. All you'll have to do is make sure you have iTunes downloaded and have a membership to the iTunes store (it's free all you need is an active email address), and you'll be able to sync up to your Dell with Vista and download all your iTunes music, movies, contacts, and appointments. Pretty cool stuff IMHO!

Greetings John & Welcome to the Forum!
It’s great to hear that you will have the pleasure of sharing this experience with your son.

Then you're in GREAT shape for syncing your phone. All you need to do is put in all the information for your contacts (family, friends, businesss associates). You can all their phone numbers (home, cell, work, fax), email addresses, birth dates, and family members. You can also sync your Outlook 2007 calendar with the calendar on the iPhone.

This advice above by ColsTiger is excellent, the perfect solution for you. I would also like to encourage you to get as much information into Outlook 2007 as soon as you can. I use this setup of Outlook with my BlackBerry at the present and it’s a great way to have all your information right in the palm of your hand. I will be doing the same with my upcoming iPhone.

Remember this forum will become a great source of information once the iPhone is out and we are all sharing. It’s great to have you as a member!
