And as for the iPod function, it's still music, right?

Does a motorola phone have a status bar? Can you change its background? I could go on, but you don't seem to comprehend my argument.

And changing the background INCREASES the functionality of a cell phone? I can change the background on my Mac, but that doesn't mean it's better than a cell, since, you know, it's not a cell phone.
Why the **** did you come here? To berate the iPhone? **** man, **** off.

All I have to say is although I love my Iphone I think everyone has a right to complain about whatever they want. If it wasn't for people who complain things would never be improved. So it's not a point of the OP saying the Iphone is great that's the problem it's the fact that they are saying that anyone that complains is a loser. Everyone uses the phone in different ways, for different things so no one has the right to tell someone they don't have the right to their own opinion and their own complaints. On top of that what the OP is calling complaints to me look like suggestions for improvements. So everyone that is supporting the OP is against improvements??

Debate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia If you are that easily agitated and lapse out of civility, , I suggest you stay away from such discussions.
How does it not increase functionality? Do you use a background on your computer? That is called a function. Having the ability to do it adds functionality. And yeah, its more than a cell phone. Its a COMPUTER. So your argument defeats itself. If my phone from 1990 can do backgrouns, and my new UBMB Pro can do backgrounds, than surely the iphone can.
It can't? Its not perfect.

If you don't like the iPhone because you can't change the picture, whatever the hell that means, just stay off the iPhone forums.

Sounds like some of you need to TAKE a CHILL pill. Why ALL the personal "attacks". Isn't this forum a place to share experiences, ask questions, LEARN, EDUCATE the UNEDUCATED ? TAKE a STEP back... Do a little digging.. Find out who's posting what. Some are more knowledgeable than others. Some have NEVER posted...SOME CAN'T string 5 words together to make sense. There's a WIDE range of AGES and EXPERIENCE on these pages. NONE more BETTER than the OTHER... We're ALL on the SAME BOAT... Making the SAME journey... Learn to LOVE it... Share it... EMBRACE it...

The iphone is good. Not perfect. ONE example is that of backgrounds. You need to step away from the computer if you can not only not partake in a discussion but also not refrain from cursing.
Its just a phone.
- 09-30-2009, 01:20 PM #69
And the backgrounds increase or decrease the basic functionality of a cell phone? Next thing you'll be saying that some other phone can change the font and the iPhone can't so therefore it's so far from imperfect, right?
Backgrounds and cool looking fonts and graphics are just twinkle stuff, icing.

Are you telling me that altering font size/font to make it legible to those with poor eye sight is NOT increasing functionality? The iphone should just be used by those with perfect vision? Really?
Oh, and its not far from imperfect. It IS imperfect

I love my iPhone. I think it's the best phone I've ever owned, BUT there are always ways to improve everything and by talking about them and making new requests, technology gets better, companies compete, and all the money I spend on newer, cooler gadgets won't be wasted on a copy of the same thing I bought last time.

The success of the iphone is also it's worst enemy. It is so good and does so much, that when one simple thing is missing or doesn't work, people flip out. Nothing is perfect. Please, make a civil debate or go home.

ctt1wbw dude you really need a nice big hug. Wheredoes all your aggression stem from? This is a DISCUSSION board and that's what we are all here for. I'm in agreement with both sides of the table. The iPhone is the best phone out there, especially jailbroken. But it is NOT perfect as you are makig it out to be. I paid $600 for mine and I NEVER in my life thought I would invest in So much money on a frickin phone.
But to me, it was worth every penny. It just boggles my mind that it lacked a lot of basic functions. For example, MMS was bundled with the new firmware update and people are acting like the new playstation 4 just came out. I just scratch my head as to why these things wasn't included with the phone 2 generations ago.
With that aside, admittedly the iPhone is one sexy biatch. I never thought I'd be on a phone this much and not really be talking to anyone. There's so much to do that one can never get bored of it. And if you do somehow grower tired of it, jailbreak!

If everything was included in gen1 what would there be to look forward to?
Apple has fef changed the came by far!!! And they did that lacking some of the most common features like copy/paste... MMS .. Stereo Bluetooth ... Apple has done nothing but exceed my expectations with a phone
