So, I'm at my uncle's house tonight, "celebrating" Thanksgiving. And, after a bit of planning, I managed to ask my cousin if I could fool around with his 1st generation iPhone.

I'm posting from it, and it's better than I'd ever imagined. I mean, I've fooled with one once or twice, but this is the first time I've really gotten to test one out. For starters, it feels like this keyboard is reading my mind! I've read complaints about it, and I was a bit concerned, but so far, it's impressing me.

Since it's a V1 I can't check out 3G speeds, but EDGE with full bars isn't exactly horrible. We're leaving so I'll cut this short.


I can't wait for Christmas.

People who used both the iPhone predictive text feature and BlackBerry's SureType generally say the iPhone's software is better.

...which reminds me, I need to head to the Apple store for about an hour long "play" session, or just stay until they kick me out as usual. (sad when they know you by name) :p

Better yet, I may just go to the AT&T store close-by they usually cycle out employees pretty regularly so it's almost always fresh, even week to week. :D

/sigh

If only we had an Apple store around here...
All we have is Best Buy and AT&T. Sure, they have the iPhone, but...
it's just not the same.

You remind me of myself before I had an iPhone haha!
-Except I would annoy the hell out of people asking to play with their iPhones everyday:p
Yeah, that's how I feel with my cousin. I ask him and he goes, "WHAT?!" Can I see your phone? "WHY?!"

Then he starts laughing and gives it to me. Gotta love family.

I suppose the temptation gets to us all, every now and then.

Wow are you serious dwp:eek:
-is that possible?

Enlighten me please :)
PDS, it will cost $9.99 to add another line plus $30.00 for the iPhone data plan and 200 text messages. You and you dad will share the same talk minutes. Hopefully he will agree to add you on. Good luck.

As long as your v1 iPhone is working fine, why would you want 3G? It sucks.

Yeah, just wait for a newer device.
