surur u r da man!
i just read the entire thread it took me all day... but i don't remember ever laughing some much reading a thread!
lol some of these fanbois r getting what they deserve
i went to att Sunday to try out iphone and was pretty impressed with it.. the gui is breathtaking and the device is very responsive but thats about it. the device has no substance...its perfect for the "razor crowd" but almost useless to most power users like myself.
the hype of this phone was ridiculous but im glad they released because its going to force Microsoft to step up there game. if you notice for example with ie they were relentless on their assault on netscape until they were crushed. once Netscape died so did the innovation in ie; until firefox...
So actually apple just woke the sleeping giant and its gonna be great for us consumers..
sorry typing from a touchscreen!

Let's not get started on "time-outs"...most of the youth problems today are due to a lack of arse whooping by parents to let the kids know the limits.
kids ain't dumb, they test ya, and if they know that there is no consequence, they walk all over ya.

There are certain times you have to ask "is this really a necessary topic on a cell phone message board?
Anyway, still no crashes on my shiny new iPhone...guess when you know how to use a phone you can get by....

:) Inquiring minds want to know.
:thumbsup: This thread has had me laughing all afternoon and into the night... It even caused me to be late for an engagement that just turned out to be the intermission to my reading. I was personally eager to hear about the real world experiences of iPhone users. Info about their problems was even more interesting after enduring soooooo much hype for soooooo long. Please let Surur do his thing. When I get tired of the "Palm Stinks" threads, I just skip them. Different strokes for different folks. The infotainment value of this thread was only diminished by the bickering. Inquiring minds want to know.
Please keep the iphone problems feedback coming on this thread. I don't have a problem finding positives things about the device elsewhere.
Palm Pilot, Pilot Professional, Palm III, Treo 300, Visor Edge, Palm M505, Treo 650, XV6700, Symbol MC50 and about 4 other MS devices supported for work), Treo 700wx currently. BB8830 and Treo 755p by friday for 60-day trial runs.

BronxBoy, I've always loved that video of your vette smoking the tires, but it looks like it's in LA. I don't recall anyplace like that near NYC (but I've mostly just driven through from NJ to MA several years ago. Am I right? Did you get transplanted onto the left coast?

Certainly any feedback, positive or negative, posted on any forum will not be completely representative of all users. I was personally interested in hearing some of the negatives after the hype of a device "5 years ahead" of any other smarthphone. The feature set alone showed that it was not. But man, that thing does look sweet. To paraphrase my father... "It may look great from far; but, it may be far from great."
Still, imagine what things will be like in 6-9mths with a more refined iPhone and MS, Palm, Nokia, HTC, Motorola, RIM's responses on the market. (Re: Palm took on ipod/Apple designing talent a couple months ago and ipod/Apple leadership more recently.) Better options will be available from all. Oh decisions, decisions. Thank you apple for getting in the game.

You can post all the negative crap you want about that iPhone but at least there is hope that they will support their product as opposed to how Palm has treated us 700p owners. Red headed stepchild doesn't even do it justice.
I'd rather be limited by not having 3rd party functionality than ignored by the product developers who passed inherent design flaws off as 3rd party issues.
In summary, it will be nice not having to use a stylus to reset the Treo ever again.
Onward and upward. F Off Palm !
650 / Verizon 700p / iPhone!

I could live without an ipod for a week or two, but not my phone/pda.

I didn't expect the iPhone to match the Treo or other true smartphones for capabilities, but some of the limitations are ludicrous: no email attachments, no way to save a photo you take to your desktop, or use an email attachment as wallpaper? Come on, those features are "cellphone 101" these days. No cut-and-paste? Give me a break! Edge locks out voice calls? Shades of the CDMA Treo 600. You'd think a phone that's 5 years ahead of everyone else could have managed to work at least as well as a GSM Treo 650, or even the CDMA 700P, in that regard.
This phone is pretty, which will satisfy millions. And it play I-tunes songs, which will satisfy many more. But as a smart-phone, it's brain dead.
And only a true Apple fan-boy would deny the problems reported, over and over again, on all the relevant forums.

Thanks for the laughs, surur. I don't think people appreciate parody any more. Alas! That's what's wrong with the Apple/MS/Palm crowds: they take themselves way too seriously. That's why their messiahs (like Mr. Jobby pants) have such power over them and think they can get away with over-hyping and over-marketing their products, fully expecting their fanbois and fangyrls to circle the wagons. We've seen it with the fooleo and now with the i-phoop. Let's all get a grip; it's only a phone. We can laugh if we want to. That said, I can't wait for the next generation of HTCs.
