    Our household is going through this debate as we speak. I will post it here when we decide.

    The "original" iPhone 3G is now $99... (new activation or upgrade eligible of course)

    I will choose unlisted option #3....

    I haven't used the palm pre, but iphone is a near-perfect product in my opinion. Wish I could trade my 16GBer in for a new 32 (would fit all my CDs), but it sounds like a pricy proposition. The other feature upgrades are exactly what I miss in this one (faster, fewer fingerprints, better camera) and the new OS adds the other things I want (landscape keyboard). I completely sound like a shill rereading what I just typed, but fuck it; the iphone is a near-perfect product and these incremental improvements only raise the bar further.

    Gripes I have with the iphone:

    Where's the freaking physical keyboard already?!

    I heard the actual phone part is the weakest point...so why does it take up the most letters in the name?

    Why the crap is this thing stuck in contractual hell with Att? Fuck them, I hate Att!

    Other than that, I wish my phone did alot of what this phone does.

    I don't want a physical keyboard. You probably text more than me though, so I understand the preference.

    What did you hear about the phone part? I have had no issues at all, but my carrier is Rogers (Canada). In fact this is the first phone i've been able to use in the elevator at work. I think the connection gripes people have are AT&T specific.

    Everybody else texts, so there I are. As far as the phone reception and such, its mostly concerning all smartphones. I wish they were as reliable as the free phone the phone companies give away.

    ATT can suck it though.

    I don't know about Sprint but I've been with AT&T for a LONG time and they suck. I've just been too apathetic to change.

    Here are my reasons...

    1. The service is way overprice; to get the unlimited media, the minute plan I want, unlimited text messages will cost me about 150 per month. That's before taxes and all those other fees.

    2. Anything they tell you over the customer service line will never be honored in the store. I've gotten in arguments with store managers because they go against what the corporate customer service line says.

    3. The people who work in the stores are completely worthless douche bags who don't know anything and are completely unhelpful. Think of the worst qualities of a Fry's, Best Buy and Home Depot employee and there you have it.

    4. No matter what phone I have it drops calls or is in a low service zone.

    5. Once you are in a contract they make it nearly impossible to upgrade to an i phone without paying near retail. What's the point of being a customer if there are no benefits?

    I'm curious how the other cell phone providers are. I was thinking of dropping AT&T and either going to Sprint or Verizon. Not sure yet.

    Once AT&T's exclusive contract with Iphone runs out and other companies pick it up I predict millions of subscriber cancellations as people jump ship.

    The phone companies in Canada suck period. The reason I won't be getting an Iphone is because I refuse to go back to Fido and I don't want Rogers. Not that Telus is any better. It's crappy when your choice is made by provider. They give the Iphones away here in Japan because no one wants them.

    The carriers suck in Canada price-wise, but frankly we get really good service on Rogers... much better than AT&T from what I understand.

    JClemy, Telus is the fucking antichrist. They tried to ruin my life. Stop giving them money!

    Sprint's network rocks. I've had it with my Qwest phone for the past 2 years, and calls hardly ever drop. I just got my new phone this morning with Jacob, and we are playing with our phones right now.

    glad i only need my phone to make calls and send a few texts. there is no need for me to be more connected than that and i feel that is a good thing. most people probably don't need to be as connected as they are and they just end up wasting the day away checking email and updating their facebook status.

    Apple has many apps and that's about it but I think the iPhone is in need of a serious visual overhall, the whole extreme minimalism is dated and butt ugly.

    Amy, tell me how you like it - features, ease of use, etc... I have been with Sprint for 5+ years now and was trying to get out of this last year of my contract to get an iphone but if the pre is that good I should just upgrade....

    I think my main uses for a phone right now are texting and of course calls but I really need to jump up technologically with phones. I need something to go online and shit like that (which I've never really had) ... fuck it, I think I'm gonna try to get one. I'm going to call and see what type of upgrade I am eligible for.

    I am struggling with it because I am just not good with technological devices. Regarding the "extreme minimalism" of its design, I like it. It fits smoothly in my hand with no rough or point edges, and it slides out the keyboard on the bootom. The keys are very small, but they "click" so you know when you've hit them. Also, since I have long-ish nails, I can just type with my nails pretty easily.

    I'm still figuring out all the gestures to move stuff around and throw stuff away. You can have multiple applications up at once, which so far is just confusing me, but I am a simple soul. Hopefully I'll get the hang of the gestures soon.

    Calls SOUND great at least; on my last shitty phone I could hardly understand what people were saying half the time. I've heard the camera is not so good (compared to the Iphone's) but I haven't tried mine yet.

    I'll try to give another update next week.

    Also, this synchs up with Itunes, so you can move whatever you have on there over to the Pre. I think it only has 8G of space though.

    Thanks, Amy. I am going to the Sprint store today to change around some stuff on my plan and check out the phone. Not sure what kind of a price they will give me... my stepdad tried to get one and they wanted to charge him over $500 (he's been a customer for 7+ years). His contract was up a week later so he just let it expire and went to AT&T and got an iphone....

    I sent an email to someone from my phone complete with the "this email was sent from the palm pre" message at the end. I felt like such a pretentious asshole.

    how are the apps in comparison with iphone apps? i guess that is the main question for me. If the apps are as user friendly and if there are good ones then i will get this phone. also how long is the battery time?
