Seems like AT&T's crappy network is hampering the iPhone's true capabilities. Here is the link:

I hear rumors that Verizon is working on their answer to the iPhone. Should be interesting to see what comes of it. They have a far superior network in their favor.

actually my only gripes (so far) are with the hardware...

keep in mind that i think this this is about 99% perfect.

personally speaking, my activation process took about five minutes (AMAZING)...the EDGE network while not even close to WiFi is fast enough to serve my purposes...the AT&T store i bought my phone at was run like a well oiled machine.

Overall, with hardware and service i have absolutely zero complaints.

I agree Apple did a crappy job of working with AT&T on the launch. However Apples plan worked perfectly, even though Apple chose AT&T to provide service, now Apple has a perfect scape goat to use for anything that goes wrong.

Never forget that Apple is Perfect, thereforee they love to blame any problems on others.

For you that have never worked with AT&T before, their rule is no phone leaves the store without being activated for their valuable customers. AT& T appreciates their customers. I know I am one, have purchased over 10 phones from them and never had a single problem.

Apple over ruled this and told AT&T the customers did not matter, it's all about the money. Apple wanted as much money as possible as quickly as possible.

The easiest way to accomplish this was to grab the customers money and then let them suffer as the try to get their Apple equipment activated.

It worked perfectly! Steve went out to play golf while suckers like me paid for a box of problems. How festive!

Just like Steve said.... History in the making!

My personal feelings and dealings with the launch is that I had a great & flawless experience.

I am sure it was because I was already on ATT and only use Mac computers.
