This is my first iPhone,but my fourth "iPod". I absolutely love it! I was a really BIG anti-iPhone person when the original one came out and tried to talk several folks at my office out of getting one. Then I started playing with theirs,and liked it. I still didn't want to get one since that meant having to go to AT&T. But this experience has been great.

I purchased my 3g last month on the 6th of June. Barely made the extended deadline to be able to exchange since the official notice came out on the 8th of this month. So when I went to get my 3G S it went pretty smooth. Only took 30 min. But as I was putting on my screen protector I noticed that right by the volume buttons it wasn't sealed correctly and you could actually see inside it. So I ran right back down there to show them. The sales associate accused me of dropping it. I told here to find any kind of mark on it then. I had to go through a total of four people until the last one said can't you see it's defective get her a new one! So now I'm happy! And even though I only had the 3g for a month I can really tell how much faster my new one is.

I don't have an iPhone 3G S yet and so I can't vote yet, but oh, my it's refreshing to see so many happy, happy people! For the Blackberry switchers, welcome to the fold! I think you'll like it here a lot, and your new device will surprise you with all that it can do (especially now with all that new 3.0 stuff added to the ingredients list)!

so far so good
just brought mine home 15 minutes ago, very pleased so far, uploading music now. On the way home I was fortunate enough to take my first pictures with the 3GS of a brand new 2010 camaro that i passed on the highway. Unfortunately the protective film was on my phone still, so the pics are a little blurry, but nonetheless it was cool.

Having the 3g i had buyers remorse since pulling the trigger on the 3gs. Well, I got the 3gs today and all I can say is money weeeeeeelllll spent. totally worth the uprade just for the speed. The camera, olephobic screen, 7.2, etc ...... is just icing on the cake, for me at least.

So happy with 3G S. At first I didn't think it was too different at all... But then I thought back to all the problems I encountered on the 3G with lag often when typing. For example, sometimes if I tapped backspace a couple times on a non-mobile formatted webpage, it would just keep going regardless of what I did and erase everything I had typed. On the 3G S? Nope.
Also, no matter how much I am doing and how quickly I am switching through apps with music running, it never skips a beat! It used to do this when using the camera inside applications.

I just purchased my first iPhone, the 3GS, on launch day+1. Love it! I came from a Treo 750 that was on it's last leg and was driving me crazy. We bought my wife a 3G a while back so the jealously factor was overwelming. As a gadget guy, it KILLED me for my wife to have a better phone than me.

So this is my first iPhone. I also own the touch and have used that for a yr or two prior. While it is a significant step up from the touch, and the UI is loads of fun w re to apps, there are too many basics that re missing...better integration of info bewteen apps and the UI/better synergy, FLASH and background processing being the most glaring ommisions. Push tech is a half-assed move for a device that requires special pricing, data plans and comes w/o insurance. The hardware and wait and hype...I'm seriously tempted to step down to the 3G.

I love it. I had a 3g for about three weeks then they came out with the 3gs (which I did not know was comming). This made me very mad since the AT&T people should have told me hay there is a new iPhone coming out in a few weeks bla bla. N E ways they were really cool when I came in *****ing about this and basically let me swap out phones ($20 fee for restocking from apple. So it turn out quite well..... I wonder if anybody else had an experiance like this. Thus far I am amazed...however I really want to jailbreak when I becomes avaliable. Apple is offly stupid for not providing a 'program' like cydia, if I understand properly. The only things Im disapponted in can be fixed when I jAilbreak.

iPhone 3GS Worth the Wait
I arrived at 4:45am and me and another guy arrived at the same time. We were the only ones there that had preordered and there was one person in line that hadn't preordered.
I'm satisfied with the 3GS. Yet. I'm disappointed that there's no MMS. I wish that there was iChat like we have on Mac computers. I'd like to be able to set the importance on my work emails, as well as have a different signature for my work emails than what I have for my personal emails.

I decided to upgrade as opposed to replacing my 3g which drowned in my raincoat as I worked in the rain last week. I'm definitely impressed with the overall quickness of operations. Although the option of using the white on black option is still unclear to me. But still cool to see a change in background on the fly.

This is exactly what happened to me. I even specifically asked whether they had heard n e thing about a new one when I bought the 3G in May. The clerk assured me there wasn't. So I was a bit peeved when they announced the 3G S no less than a month after. But when I found out and called the AT&T store the manager had just barely found out about it no less then five minutes ago. Lol when she asked me how I'd heard I had to tell her about this site.
