It's good to be back! I've been on T-Mo with my iPhone 3G for what seems like an eternity. Overall, I've been happy with T-Mo but as soon at the merger deal fell through, I bailed on T-Mo and am now the [very] happy owner of a brand, spanking new, black 32GB iPhone 4S.
What a THRILL!

24 Hours and WOW!
I've had my iPhone 4S for just over 24 hours and all I can say is WOW! I've been a faithful Blackberry user for years. After having to return my Bold 9930 not once, but twice in the past two months, plus it continually locked up on me, I finally had enough and swapped it for the iPhone 4S.
It arrived while I was at a trade show in Las Vegas last week, so I didn't activate it until 3pm yesterday afternoon and really didn't have a chance to do much with it until last night. I had a three hour drive, so Siri and I spent the time texting my wife and sister and getting to know Siri.
Today I've been able to get most of my apps working and it is amazing. After blinding defending RIM (including purchasing Playbooks for all of my sales reps) it's over between us. While speaking with the Verizon customer service rep on the phone while activating the iPhone, she laughed and said I wouldn't be sorry. I'm saddened by their demise, but their arrogance is their downfall. Frankly their arrogance reminds me of the arrogance of the US Auto industry in the 70s when they didn't take the Asian competitors seriously.
Because I had an iPad and MacBook Air, I had an iCloud account which made getting going with the iPhone extremely simple. So we're off to a good start. My lovely bride will be enjoying the one I get her for Christmas.
I'll be relying a lot on the advice and expertise on here, so I look forward to interacting with many of you.

The love affair with my iPhone 4S is burning hot as flame. So much so, that I got myself a used Macbook Pro from Mac of All Trades online. Next will be the iPad 3. Love Apple tech because of what I can do with it. I'm sitting here right now rebooting my Windows 7 PC while my Macbook Pro never crashes and is actually faster with the same speed CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz).

I have my iPhone 4s! Haha.
Came over from a BlackBerry Bold 9700, but I've had about a one-month introductory course in iOS because we got an iPad2. Love that device, and am loving my phone as well. Battery life is about what I expected, but it's also really easy to charge this thing since I can USB in my car, and I have about 12 Apple cords lying around at home and work now. Also, the thing charges pretty damn fast on my 10W iPad plug.
The hardware and software is pretty much as I expected, and I understand why a lot of the tech snobs don't view this as an "elite" piece of hardware. But as any BlackBerry user knows, it really isn't about the hardware, it's the "ecosystem", and that's where Apple is still the best of the best.
If I have to be negative about one thing, it's pretty obvious that this thing doesn't do email as quickly or conveniently as BlackBerry does. I knew that going in, and it's a trade-off I'm fully willing to make given all the other advantages, but having push only every 15 minutes, and often waiting 10-20 minutes to seemingly get mail is a bit of an adjustment. That being said, the mail is much better LOOKING and properly displayed once it does arrive, so it cuts both ways.
The Verizon 3G data network is what it is, but I'm really focusing on using WiFi whenever I can, and am only carrying the 2GB data plan. So far, it's been everything I've expected, which is saying a lot how much I've anticipated this day for the past 12 months!

Just be careful with the 2GB data. It's really easy to go over. Wifi can be your saviour. I use over 6GB of data a month on mine.
