    Didn't Apple just get a patent for "rotary style dialing device"?

    I may get flammed but oh well.
    The truth is that if Microsoft had made the iPhone it would have the ability to transfer files with bluetooth, make mp3's into ringtones and delete some of the software on the phone that you don't need or want like a stock widget.
    You would have all this right out of the box and, there would be tons of third party apps that you could put onto the phone instead of having to access them through edge.
    I'm not a fanboy of either Microsoft or Apple, I enjoy both, but those are the facts.
    P.S.
    It would also have A2DP right out the box and the bluetooth would not be selective. I bought a bluetooth car kit from Motorola and the thing won't work with it. Can someone explain why the bluetooth on iPhone is so picky?

    This video is pure propaganda!

    I am a MicroSoft fan! Yes, I am not ashamed of saying so! Anyone complaining about MicroSoft is a total hypocrite! If it wasn't for MS, we'd still be using floppy disks right now. MS has made the computer accessible (both financially and technically) to everyone.

    I am sorry but Macs are a real pain to use. Just the fact that there is not right click annoys(and don't give me that "you have to press the Apple button to get the right click functionality" . However I understand Macs may be much better computers!

    BUT to reply to your comment DAYWALKER, let me remind you that MS is already providing softwares for most handhelds devices.... And we ALL know that these softwares are real pieces of crap! They are complicated to use, they crash all the time, they create conflicts with other apps, etc.... So NO, I don't believe MS would have done better than Apple on the iPhone!

    You have a point as far as the software goes, but why does this phone not have A2DP right out of the box? Why is the bluetooth limited?
    The iPhone is such a great piece of hardware, but it has a couple of glaring drawbacks.

    Because Apple are freaking assholes that like to do things differently. They want you to buy the expensive Apple branded stuff! Thats what they do with their computers, thats what they do with the iPod (doesn't use mp3 like everybody else), and that's what they do with the iPhone (they don't even have the same f***ing headset as everybody else!).

    This is a different story. It has major flaws because it's a brand new, totally way in advance on its time piece of technology. Besides, one of my friends who work for Apple told me the iPhone was supposed to come with MUCH MUCH more capabilities but they couldn't release everything on time (that's why they had to pull out programmars of working on the new leopard to work on the iPhone)

    Correct me if I am wrong, but every desktop Macintosh (except the Mac Mini) now comes with a "Mighty Mouse," which has five software-configurable buttons and a scroll ball. Now you don't have anything to be upset about and you can give your exclamation key a rest!

    You're right about most of what you said, but don't forget that the MS phone would probably crash a lot or pop up with the blue-screen-of-death!

    I guess I'm just disappointed.
    I heard a lot of great things about Apple and macs so this being my first Apple product, I expected a lot more.
    I just don't want to have to worry about one day taking my modded iPhone to an Apple store for service and having them say my warranty is voided because I made it do what they should have in the 1st place.

    Good one. My point is kids read this board, I'm sure your langauge is acceptable at the McDonalds you work at, but it's inappropriate here.

    I think Apple users really take for granted the fact that we don't have any pop-ups on safari or many (if any) viruses. Had Microsoft used Internet Explorer on a mobile phone, there would have been tons of pop-up windows as well as viruses to worry about. Thats why they would really need 3rd party apps, for security reasons.

    Then 3rd party software to "block pop-ups" that makes an annoying noise every time it blocks a window, and never works "just right" as safari's built in pop-up window works.
