    Whats the iphone experience like only on EDGE? There's no 3G in my area but I still see quite a bit of iphones. With it being such a multimedia/web connected phone I'd think 3G is almost a requirement.
    I am in Northern Alaska where EDGE is it as far as data goes. No 3G at all (hopefully they will get it working whle I am deployed). I can say that its fast enough to get most things done as long as I have 3-4 bars. If I drop to 1-2 bars it pretty much just times out. I really don't know how to compare it to 3G because I haven't experienced it yet, but I can Flickr, use Google Reader, get Email, etc all without much issue. Of course, I still connect to "attwifi" whenever I find one as nothing beats ethernet.

    I think I asked that here before.
    I don't remember getting an answer.
    I guess they could add a slider.

    Not a requirement, but after having it, I don't want to lose it and I don't think I can and will not accept losing it.

    If you use the MySpace or Facebook apps, the pictures load a crapload faster as with other apps as 3g = faster data transfer, much faster. If the Bold was 2g, I would still have an iPhone.

    I so hope that the new nano rumors are far from true. I want a larger screen iphone rather than going smaller.

    When I type I like to hold it in portrait mode, centered equally in both hands, pinkies under it with both thumbs typing away. !
    Yah, I type like that too. I can fly on it now. I probably type faster than on my BB because I can use a light touch. I just usually type away and let the auto-correction do its thing. don't even need to look at where the keys are anymore. If you're close enough, it gets it. Before, I used to read the email once before sending it to make sure there are no typos. I don't do it anymore.

    got my push all working the way i want to know. i had both mobile me and gmail set up on the device, with mobile me to push and gmail to manually check. but i accidentally had gmail set to my default app still, so i think that was preventing mobileme from pushing. once i swapped it i was good to go.
    I have MobileMe set up similarly. I have my Google Apps email forwarded to MobileMe. In the settings, I also changed the SMTP server to use the Google Apps server (which is the same as the Gmail server), so that emails I reply to will send from my Apps address. However, this is my work account, and not the account I use most, and therefore, I have another email account set up as the default. MobileMe still pushes to me fine. I find that email hits me within 5-10 seconds after sending. I don't think the default email account setting affects how MobileMe works.

    Oh yah, one other thing. I also have the Apps account turned off and I also set my Apps account so that every email that is forwarded is automatically marked read. It keeps the inbox cleaner and I don't look at the same email twice.

    I agree. But I did see a guy wearing one clipped to the back of his hat while golfing once and thought that would be sort of neat.

    When is the iphone 3G being given away? It's the 31st correct?

    Sorry, just a little confused as I've seen various dates.

    Thanks.
