it's been hard picking 16gb of music for the phone.. also have a 160 gb ipod so don't have to think too hard about that one...
 
 but for exchange active sync, multimedia and phone it's a great device.  only concern is batterly life but too early to tell on that front yet.  and keybord takes a bit of getting used to to but i'm sure i will.
 
 And the selection of free apps is great.  useful and fun stuff.  I can actually stream pandora without even being on the 3g network.  and location based services are a hoot too, not sure how much i'll endup using them but we'll see.

Ha, couldn't have put that any better myself.  Rarely are displays of douche-baggery executed with more perfection than by you.  I imagine now you'll talk about 1980-whatever and and how nobody at the old 930 would ever have an iphone or a piece of high tech kit...."back in the day we used blood trails and smoke signals to communicate".....
 
 You can stop all that old school posturing btw...think you're the only person on this board with a resume?  Rarely have seen someone with such a constant need to flash their little "scenester" card.  Is there something you're trying to compensate for, or have the past 25 years just not been kind to you?

yeah it is easily the best phone I have ever owned. I haven't had any issues with battery life, it battery life is much better than my old motorola q9h.  I only have a few gripes - no MMS, the keyboard slowdowns (patch didn't fix it), and the speaker isn't very loud....other than that, great phone.  It suits my needs.

Okay, so here's an honest question.  Can it really function as a cell phone and a fully functional ipod?  I currently have the 5th Gen Black 30 gig ipod.  Does the iphone serve musical needs as much as the other ipod models?  I love the controls on the 5th gen.  I can't imagine trying to change songs on an iphone while driving.

I'm holding out high hopes for the HTC Touch Diamond, otherwise I may bolt Sprint.
 
 The second iteration of the iPhone met all my complaints about the first gen version, I'm still just really concerned about at&t's 3g network.  I look forward to folks opinions on that and how the exchange server sync performs compared to Win Mobile phones.

Besides the space limitations it's stellar as an ipod....best ipod interface i've used yet.  Once you were used to it don't see why it would be any harder to use when driving than a 5th gen ipod.
 
 As far as exchange support, this was HUGE concern.  Came from 2 years of BB's and winmobile devices provided my my job (which i'm leaving in a few weeks, hence the new phone).  So far it's by far the best exchange interface i've used by a mile.  HTML e-mails look great, easy to browse other folder besides just inbox, great so far.
 
 Can't say much about 3g yet....but i've had no problems.
 
 I've been using smartphones since the first color screen samsung palm os phone from way back when, and have had 5 or 6 in between.  This is so far my favorite of the lot.
 
 Like i said though, still no comment on battery since i have not settled in to regular usage and still getting used the keyboard...

Mine gets through the day on a charge but needs to be charged nightly. As for storage space, I like having fewer albums on it. I had a hard time deciding what to listen to on my 20gb ipod which this replaced. I've been adding music via a 4gb smart playlist of albums I haven't listened to in more than 6 months plus whatever new things I've recently bought. I'm only using it with gmail imap.

No, I just think corporate fanbois are douches... whether for Apple or any other expensive gimmick... your little rant suggests that I appear to have hit a nerve and confirms my point.     :D

Why does buying a phone make you a corporate fanboy? Are all blackberry or nokia owners corporate fanboys? Blackberry people seem to be pretty rabid about their product, too. The iphone is better than my nokia 6230 (except for battery life) so I like it more.

Corporate fanboy not quite.  When someone does something right I don't care who it is...but your predictable contrarian reactionary stance on this and so many topics reminds me of the pimply faced teenagers I see at starbucks with their vans and hot topic punk rock t-shirts.  I'll just enjoy you, as I do them, with a smile from now on....

Chip, buying something doesn't make you a fanboy, loving an inanimate object does.  People actually love their Blackberries?  That's even more disturbing.  
 
 Chaz, apparently you read my posts at least enough to be bothered by them... after many years on this board, the only thing I've ever noticed about you is that you are in love with your new Apple product... and I only took note of this because you took it way too personally when I goofed on Iphones... not even directly on you... and not even seriously.   I might even get one if they ever get around to incorporating basic smartphone features like copy and paste.  Get over yourself.  :)

Duh...I don't  LOVE love my phone silly.  I do have a very very strong like for my gadgets, toys and stereos though.  I work in IT so deal with folks all the time with misguided love/hate towards apple, ms, palm, cisco, sonicwall the list goes on and on and on, and yes it drives me crazy when boneheaded users who've seen too many apple ads say "this wouldn't have happened if we just all had macs here" (though i know now i'm treading into dangerous territory so I won't go there...)
 
 All said yeah I probably lashed out over the fanboy jab.....because I loathe so many of these fanboy idiots i deal with on the job.  But how could I not resist posting that .jpg of Rick from the Young Ones?
 
 And I'll give you cut and paste, should have it.  But in all actuality, after 8 or so years of pda/smartphone use I can probably count on one hand the number of times i've used copy/paste.
 
 See there...aren't you so glad I convinced you to go out and buy and iphone?
