Hi everyone, newbie here. I've used a Motorola Q Windows Mobile smart device as my phone ever since the beginning of the year (yes, I'm a member of everythingq). The iPhone came out (with AT&T, too bad), and I thought, "Well, I'll wait until they've hacked it so I can use with another carrier." So, I was looking on eBay for a unlocked iPhone when I saw an iPod Touch. For over the last month I've been looking for differences, etc. Post your opinions.

Get an iPhone. iPod Touch is basically a "watered-down" version of the iPhone. Especially since the 16gb iPod touch and the iPhone are the same price. Also, you don't need to buy an unlocked iPhone for the extra price. Just unlock it yourself.

Can't go wrong with the iPhone,I am still running 1.0.2 since unlocking it in september.

Best gadget / phone I have ever owned,needs some good solid updates to unlock some things but it's a good start.

Being in Canada I thought the iPod Touch would be as close as I could get to an iPhone so I bought one.

I was left with "empty" feelings while using it......it just didn't feel complete. It also had the bad screen so I sent it back and decided to get an iPhone.

I got a friend living near Detroit to pickup one from an AT&T store and send it to me in Edmonton. 15 minutes after it was delivered, it was unlocked, jailbroken, and playing nice with my Rogers SIM.

GET THE iPhone! :)

yes it will void your warranty which is totally stupid. i don't have mine unlocked but jailbroken which voids it to so when i had to go to Apple for something for it i just restored back to factory so they wouldn't say anything and would fix it. Then got home jailbroke the new one. Op just go with the iPhone you will regret it if you didn't

I thought the same thing. However, I have no regrets just getting the phone. I chose to leave well enough alone and left it locked and have done no modifications. I have several people that are used to me selling off my devices so I can stay with the latest "gadget". They all want to buy the iPhone from me. I don't see it going anytime soon.
