I don't think anyone here actually knows unless one of the At&t members here has already seen and used one.

If I were you, I would look for a post from Attingular and ProductProFresno. I think they're both going through iPhone training. I don't know how soon they'll actually get to use one though because I heard they won't actually get the phones in the stores until the week of 25th.

As the others said, very very few people here have actually touched an iPhone. What I can say though is that most of the hands on articles that were written after the keynote by those lucky enough to use an iPhone, were very positive about the keyboard.

I think you will have to wait another 19 days 22 hours and 43 minutes to know for sure though ;).

Text messaging sucks...they should do away w/ text messaging. Why text messaging when you can do IM or email. See the only reason text messaging exist is because in the beginning, no cellphones can have access to Wi-FI! But now that THEY DO, text messaging should be abandoned in favor of IM or email. The only reason text messaging still exist today is because they want to charge people for data plan. Well, they ain't gettin my money because with wi-fi, data plan adoption should be obsolete.

i don't think there is any IM on the iPhone? im not sure, plus text messaging is great because nobody is ever on AIM all the time

yes i was kinda surprised by that but it doesn't really bother me that much because i don't use that very much at all really
I do on my computer and might on a phone with an unlimited data plan, but I tend to favor Windows Live Messenger (MSN) and I doubt it would ever be available on an Apple product anyway.
