Based on what your propose, I'd have to create a "carrier" category just so I'd be able to send a photo or video; who has that kind of time?

[QUOTE=scandalex;1283417]No offense, but this is plain ridiculous. What are the chances of knowing what carrier that cell number is connected too? Most people, IMO, dont think in terms of carrier. All they know is that this is your cell number.
There's another issue with this workaround: On my Sprint Q (and when I had a 700wx), when I send a pic using my sprint pop email account, it shows up on the recipient's phone with "unkown sender". I've had messages w/pics deleted by users who won't open such a message.

Personally I think the whole touch scrolling 'wow' animations are cool and all, but just like the dock it probably would get old real quick. A D-pad clicking up or down seems like less real work and probably better for me personally.
I really want to like the iPhone but I think it's going to take some time to mature. Which is completely understandable. It sure is pretty though.

Yeah, you must always look at your phone to see where and what you're touching to operate it correctly.
This interface would have made a great new iPod alone concept though. Touchscreen MP3 and video player with a similar brilliant screen would rock! For a phone, it's going to be an experiment.

The only good thing is a thief may not be able to use an iPhone if it's stolen. But you pull that thing out too many times and some :censored: will probably try snatching it out of your hand!
I usually hide my stuff in my purse and operate it from there. This may be a little hard to do with an iPhone.
I was thinking of the video quality of the screen for a video iPod, although now that you mention it, a click wheel might help there too.

There's no perfect solution to that general problem as far as I can see. There has to be a compromise. Apple went big screen while (most) others have gone small screen or slider/flip. The advantages to a big screen in a small device are obvious, but I'm guessing that a lot of the success of the iPhone will hinge on how people get on without a lot of the mechanical controls they're used to. In the MacWorld keynote Jobs made play of how much more flexible the interface is when freed from buttons. That's true of course. A device with a mechanical QWERTY, big screen, phone buttons, a bunch of PIM app buttons, and a click wheel doesn't sound too great to me

This begs the question if you can have multiple Safari windows active at once though. If not it will be very limited in its usefulness. Will it be able to run in the background while you browse another site or check your email? That sort of thing.
