Here's an even better clue on why to avoid from the AT&T FAQ...
Q. I'm an existing customer. Can I swap out my current SIM card and start right away?
A. No. iPhone must be activated before it can be used. iPhone includes a pre-installed SIM card for your convenience.
"For your convenience.." my tuckus. Makes it absolutely impossible to unlock and use on another network, aka CDMA phones. Of course, many of its features (visual voicemail) wouldn't work on another network anyway, but still a pretty cheesy thing to do considering AT&T's overseas rates when you travel outside the good old USA.Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

The Iphone is innovative, but they are already working on an updated version. The keyboard is going to be an issue. Plus an overabundance of accessories will come out. Is the USB adapter the same as an ipod? Its a multi media device that makes phone calls, while the treo to me is a phone that has muti media capabilities. BTW since ATT doesn't offer insurance, how many are going to spend over $1000.00 to leave a current contract, sign up with ATT, purchase the iphone, and replace it when it breaks?

Another potential con, and one that the masses haven't been able to measure yet, is the usability of the virtual keyboard.
Another potential con is the durability of the large glass-encased display. How long will it last in pockets? How easily will it crack when used/abused?
As for me, I'm with those who say WAIT.

Simply name it ... iPod Phone.
With that name this device makes a whole lot more sense. The UI is as slick as the original iPods. This takes the iPod and makes it a multimedia featurephone.
Then again, If I'm Apple and can garner $3.25 gazillion in free advertising (hype), I would take it.Patrick Horne

How about this simple reson not to get it:
iPhone has no A2DP - the phone with an iPod in it can't stream music over headphones via bluetooth, you have got to be kidding me.
I never knew that AT&T did not offer insurance, so what is going to happen when people start stealing these like the iPod's were.
Something tells me that this whole thing is going to be a let down as far as the hype goes, but a lot of reviews say it is worhty. Must be like movie critics, I only go when they say it stinks.

Although i will say this, that picture I saw earlier of the phone dock with built in headset chrger was a cool idea and wish I had one of those.
iPhone has a lot of cool pretty features but it is goingto have a lot of problems, too expensive for the general public as far as a phone goes, there are not many 22 year olds willing to drop that kind of jack on a phone and service. But then again, our country loves to go into debt for instant gratification, so I am probably wrong there.
Broke screens may be a big problem since it is glass. I just hope we do not see some kind of bad news stories on CNN during the release, I hope everyone gets out alive.
Guess I am just sick of the hype and build up.
