I can't believe all the negatives I am reading about the phone. I don't even have mine yet and I already love it (haha, if that makes sense) I know that I am going to be completely satisfied with it for one reason. Internet in your pocket! HELLO! It's worth the price for me right there, and I'm sure many others feel the same way. I mean come on, that is such an awesome feature to have the net on you at all times! Everything else is just a bonus! I can see where people are coming from with some of the complaints, like phones not functioning properly, etc.. I would be furious too if I paid $600 for something that didn't work properly. But to completely bash the phone and its functions is ridiculous, as it's such a revolutionary device. Maybe I need to actually get mine before judging, but so far from what I read, I'm going to love mine!

If you will accept conversation - I agree with you on attitude. My thoughts are that if you can afford the pleasure of an iPhone you can most likely afford a Mac-mini or Mini-Mac. I have dealt with both Windows and Apple, and I, after many years, am beginning to deal with the thought of learning the Mac. It has done wonders for the iPhone and syncing but it took some time and is certainly not what I expected to have to do. With "Vista" syncing was not a positive thing and the results showed as do the responses to many threads here. I lost wifi sitting next to my router - it being replaced by the big E. There goes battery life and speed. I gave up and have spent the better part of a day entering addresses to "Address Book" and appointments to "iCal". I love the phone and am willing to make some adjustments. I don't seriously believe that Apple and Microsoft will ever work smoothly together - just enough to interest you in their product. It's a great phone, Mac is difficult for a Windows bred user, but it's only up to you. This life is not automatic.

Good luck in your efforts.

I got my first macbook two months ago

I bought my first mac book two months ago then bought my iPhone the day it was released, and then one week later I bought the iMac I'm typing this post on. I am THROUGH with microsoft products, it will be all and only Apple for me from here on.

My phone is working perfectly, and rather than bitching about the features it doesn't have I"m enjoying the hell out of it while I look forward to any updates that come along. I couldn't recommend this phone with any more enthusiasm!

X's 2! I got my first mac product (imac) about 2 months ago and couldn't be happier. They truly are plug n play, and easy to use!
I am an Apple convert!

Get the newest iMac, I would wait until OS X Leopard comes out though (their newest os, and i'm not sure when it comes out) so you might want to check on that. Macs are more expensive but well worth the money.

I love my iPhone. The negative media will die down once the iPhone proves itself as the people's choice... which it seems to have already. Actually why the hell is there so much negative media around this thing? Hahaha.

Anyway, it's worth every cent.

Once you go MAC you never go back.

While im on a pc now My next device will be Apple's. I would have gotten one this year but with the iPhone comming out I decided on that instead because when I go to college in 2 years I don't want a 2 year old laptop. I will get the best one Apple has at that time.
