Bit chunky, but I like it So far no device has all the same features on the market yet.

what i find amusing; the last couple of pages are full of discussion centered around the working aspects of safari's successes, flick gestures working well enough, and the iPhone's autocomplete capability.
pleasantly surprised that we're not seeing pages and pages of copied material combatting some of either Mobileman's or CMaier's somewhat positive commentary. apparently these are now considered "on topic" and allowable as opposed to the converse.
good to see

What has been more interesting recently are people running into the built-in limitations of the device. People have certain expectations of a $600 device, and its amusing when the iPhone does not meet them. Also I find the security issues fascinating. Its amazing how many flaws show up when the spotlight of the worlds attention is one one device. As one hacker said: Everytime safari crashes on a web page, thats a potential exploit.
Those are many many potential exploits.

-why do some people out there truly enjoy their device regardless of the limitations? why is it that you only want to discredit the device? why is it that some around here actually go as far as discrediting the actual owners who are actually happy (in other words, why do they have to be labeled as retards, or the like)? if some don't like their iphone and are complaining about it, so what? this place is the rescue mission for Treos and you know that to be true. don't make me point you to those threads!
-if people had certain expectations and the iphone didn't meet them so what? return the darn phone...yes, they knew that they would have to pay a restocking fee so that should not be an issue. if they didn't know then it's their own tough luck for not knowing such. i only expected it to do four things: phone, internet, email, and music. it does those things to my liking. would i like to see certain improvements? absolutely! yes, i think you should be able to type a few letters to look up a contact and i think one should be able to attach a photo from the email feature as opposed to the photo application. better yet, why can't one attach multiple images? maybe they can but i haven't bothered to look further into it because it just hasn't bothered me enough to do so. but at the end of the day, if the iPhone didn't deliver what i wanted i would have put it back to the company, plain and simple.
in all honest to goodness truth, i'm still waiting for my device to crash (or reset). like i said, if it did i didn't notice it, but i definitely have not experienced what i used to with all of my past Treos.

I wish Apple would have taken this opportunity to release an unlocked phone that consumers could demand any GSM carrier to allow on their networks. There is no reason (especially sans any subsidy) this couldn't have been done really. Then it truly would have been revolutionary. They possibly could have released in Europe first if the US carriers didn't play ball. People could just buy unlocked phones from that market in the meantime.

Well, that wasn't a practical option, i'm sure. The outcry if they released first in europe would have been nuts. And if they released unlocked they wouldn't have had visual voice mail, they would probably have had issues where carriers refused to activate them, they would have had issues with the data network support in all likelihood, etc.
