    I have a 1st gen iphone and I'm going to purchase a 3G phone this weekend. I've got lots of apps, email, etc on there and I'm wondering:

    How tough is the transfer? I've got a mobile me account, does that help the process?

    It's no different than if you were doing a restore to your current phone. And yes having MobileMe does speed things up a bit.

    Don't do it. If you are paying iphone one prices, it is not worth switching.
    3G plagued by dropped calls. Do an internet search on "3G issues ATT"

    I have never had more than 2 or 3 dropped calls since July 11th.

    Buy it, you'll have 30 days to return it if you have issues. Chances are you will be good.

    Yeah, ouch. I really do feel for you. I wish I was not telling the truth when I said I maybe had 3 or 4 tops since July 11th. Have you been with AT&T long?

    No offense taken. I'm complete opposite, I had horrible Sprint service all of a sudden and I gave it a few months to get better and it never did. So I bailed and went to AT&T... have superb service in the Chicago area. It happens. :o

    I got my iPhone 3G on launch day, and with iTunes down, I couldn't back up. Set up Exchange and MobileMe, however, and all my PIM data was right there, near-instantly. Boom!

    (I'm on Rogers, so no AT&T horror stories)
