    I had a Motorola A1000 Smart Phone. It was a GREAT phone and VERY STABLE. I moved on after 3 years. It had TONS of useful software. What attracted me to the iPhone was 3G, GPS, WiFi and tons of software (oh and of course price).

    So far, I am ok with the iPhone. I am still waiting on consistent 3G service, more stability and updates to the Op system for features like support for stereo Bluetooth, cut/paste and other features.

    Thanks

    Why would the iPhone have a mini usb? I like it better that it is a universal plug between my iPod and iPhone. Apple does things different, remember that.
    Apple does things different from most other vendors but all too much like Palm.

    Apple devices do not use standard adapters like mini-usb, for the same reason that Palm does not. So they can keep the nominal price low while inflating the system price.

    You like that the iPod and iPhone have the same adapter? Except, of course, they do not. Even the iPhone and the iPhone 3G do not. My iPhone complained when I tried to use it with cables for my iPod and my 3G will not work with cables from my iPhone. All of this is about selling proprietary accessories.

    At least Palm changed from one non-standard cable to another when it changed phones so that one would not get confused. Apple cables all look the same but do not work the same. That is what all those extra pins are for.

    To the extent that Apple acts like Palm, I do not like either of them. If Apple takes any other lessons from Palm, it had best be careful that it does not end up like Palm. Palm failed not because it had shoddy products, but because it had shoddy business practices.

    Actually , my iPod adapter does work with my iPhone, maybe because it is the touch, but it works.

    Treo 700wx and it was good..but the iPhone is great. I do miss Pocket Informant and I'm waiting for full ewallet with sync, but everything else about the iphone ROCKS. I have no regrets.
    Check out the website for Pocket Informant. They are working on a version for the iphone and you can sign up to be notified whenever they have any news about the beta.

    As far as the phones I have used (in order from latest to oldest):
    Blackberry Curve 8310 (Good for email but I missed the touch screen)
    at&t 8525 (I loved this device but changed jobs and they were a blackberry shop. If you know the quirks of WM and are willing to invest in 3rd party apps it really is a great OS)
    Dell Axim and Motorola SLVR (The axim was a great device. Too bad Dell stepped out of that market.)

    I have been a bit disappointed with the reception on the iPhone 3G as well as the inherent crashes but I knew I was bleeding edge with this device so it is what it is. Hopefully Apple/at&t can figure out what is going on. The battery life is also far worse than the 8525, which I did not think was all that great to begin with. Get many additional chargers (for home, work, car, etc.) or you will be without the device when you need it. There are also many devices available that you can use to extend the battery life which I won't go into. You can check out JKontherun for a review of one of the devices.

    * Voice Dialing (specifically Microsoft Voice Command).
    * Today Screen (I have a jailbroken 3G - so I am using IntelliScreen - but still...)
    * Copy and Paste (yeah - I know - harping - but it is a useful feature (for example - yesterday -had a friend send me a website to go to without the www on the front).
    * Power Profiles (plugged in / not plugged in). Backlight and such are changeable based on profile.
    * Sound Profiles - specifically a calendar based one (silent when in meeting - audible when out of meetings).
    * Easy access to the filesystem.
    * Tethering. WMWifiRouter was freaking awesome.
    * Standard power plug (mini-usb). Why is ANYONE making a phone device these days without that standard?
    * Music everywhere. I have 4 computers I am regularly attached to. And only one that I can put music on / take it off with (iTunes... what???). Much easier with a folder on the phone with mp3s and 'voila - music. On. Off. Easy.

    -Daniel
    By the way - if anyone knows of any solutions to the above - I am all ears.

    I know of the tethering (kinda) capabilities - but I would rather have something neat and direct like WMWiFiRouter.

    Maybe this is a separate thread in the making?

    I used to have a Nokia N95 before my iPhone. Much happier now because iPhone is simply more fun. I own a 2G, but I don't miss the GPS capability of the N95 at all.

    I have no speed issues with my 3G, I actually think it is faster than my Curve 8330.

    I don't really consider the gps on the iphone much of a feature. It's more of a location option for apps. Then again, i wouldn't use its gps even if it was a full app.

    I am getting tired of the lagginess though and resets. Reminds me very much of my old palm 600. Glad to see apple working on updates though.

    BTW..my prior phone was palm os treos with the centro being the last. The fact that apple copied much from palm is what makes the iphone appealing to me.

    Well, I admit to doing "Windows." However, since Palm abandoned Palm OS in favor of Windows mobile, along with millions of others, I have abandoned Palm. After more than a year on iPhone, I no longer miss my Palm and cannot imagine what they might do to get me back.

    Apple did not destroy Palm but they are putting the last nail in the coffin. Palm did not need Apple's help. However, Apple has achieved in a little more than a year what it took Palm a decade to do. I do not think that Palm can survive on WM; just to stay in business, it will have to leapfrog the iPhone.

    I admit that I still use my Treo 650 to run TomTom but I will smash it with a hammer when I get TomTom on the iPhone. Are you listening Apple?

    I had a palm centro. I've wanted an iphone since they first came out, but didn't have the money (or wasn't able to upgrade)

    Thanks to a buddy at work, I now have one (2g, and for only $100!)

    2G is a great value. 3G speed and GPS are useful but not necessary.

    2G phone is worth a lot more now that AT&T offers WiFi AND the Easy WiFi app.
    My ISP offers pretty good WiFi coverage, much easier to use than the AT&T, so I never used AT&T WiFi. The app makes the AT&T WiFi so easy that I now prefer it.

    Its got a few dents and scrapes on the upper corners, and the bottom black piece will not stay on to save my life (right now I have some scotch tape and a cheapo mall kiosk bought case holding it on haha) but its been working just fine. I had a few free third party apps "freeze" on me the other day but from what i've been reading, that can happen to anybody with third party apps.

    Sony Ericson something-or-other (verrrrry basic phone), then Treo 750 (I liked it, but after playing with the iPhone for 2 minutes in the AT&T store I was over it completely). Now I have the iPhone, & am very pleased with it still. My only gripe is that I wish it had more storage capacity; I have the 8 GB version of the first gen iPhone & I constantly have to trade off between having a huge amount of music or a bunch of neat apps or a couple of good movies. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a nice Valentine's Day present from Apple in the form of a 32 GB version of the device.
