    Hi Guys

    I am new here, I was never a huge fan of Apple till I got MacBook Pro then got the iMac and now ordered the iPad2, so to complete the circle I would like to get the iPhone, but should I hold out for the 5 or get the 4? The rumors are that the 5 will have bigger screen and dual cpu. What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I would say wait until WWDC June 6-10th of this year, Steve Jobs will announce when the iphone 5 will be released as well as features. That way you arent relying on rumors of specs, features, delayed release dates. But if its true that no iphone5 til 2012 I would go ahead and buy the iphone 4

    If you can't wait, then just get the 4, then sell and get the 5. You'll be happy you did.

    i think you just answered your own question (sell the 4 buy the 5) the iPhone 4 will do circles around your pre. it is definitely not the wrong decision, that's for sure

    and.. whenever someone leaves Sprint it's always a good thing

    There are many IM apps out there. Personally I like BeeJive. There's a free version of Beejive for GTalk only.

    BeejiveIM with Push for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store

    And most IM apps you can set how long you want the app to stay signed in.

    Could you clarify on the e-mail question? I don't quite get what you're asking.

    You could use GTalk through Safari or 1 of the many IM apps in the APP store. I use GTalk too, and I use it through BeeJive. As far as Gmail, no it doesnt work like it does on Andorid. Its great on the iPhone when you use it with Exchange. With the Android you sign into your account and all your contacts, and calendars are there. You can sync everything thru itunes, or Google if you want. Google has an app on the iPhone that you can sign into and all your calendars, email, and address book are there but its using the internet. Its not like an actual app thats doing it like how Andorid is. But Gmail on the iPhone is beautiful and I love it. The emails are very easy to read, its easy to navigate around, and with exchange your emails are instantly pushed. I think you will love the iPhone and Im sure its better than what you are currently using.
