Has anyone snagged an iPhone? If so, what are your thoughts, thusfar?

Asked by GD_Kimble (2277points) June 30th, 2007

I was just wondering if the hype was warranted.

I'm 95% thrilled so far. I never though my thumbs as particularly meaty, but I'm having a little transitional period from the physical keys on my treo.

I've had a difficult time transitioning my number from verizon (my voicemail still doesn't work) but I expected that.

My favorite blog ever, BoingBoing, has done a pretty fair review of their take on what they call "The Jesus Phone." Check it out:

Well....I'm 2 hours in on a support call with at&t; and apple to try and fix my voicemail.

went to the apple store in danbury, ct at opening on saturday morning. stood in line behind eight people, walked away with my iphone after waiting ten minutes. when i got home, it took me three minutes to activate the phone, and i can comfortably say it's the most amazing device i've ever seen.

i'm just going to throw out there that while i don't doubt everyone's excitement, here.. but at the same time it'd really be hard not to love something that you just dropped so much cash on. Again.. I believe that it's awesome, but I'm also pretty sure that we're not going to see any real issues and complaints for a while after it's been out and around.

of course that's not to minimize your VM issue - best o' luck! i hate waiting on support with phone companies more than I can express.

yes, and just got home from iPhoneDevCamp - imagine the size of the brain created when 200 geeks descend upon a problem.. that's what's happening this weekend as we hack away at the possibilities of the new iPhone - and yes, it's very, very cool. Don't play with one unless you're prepared to buy (or have amazing will power)

Or are already seduced by OpenMoko phones (openmoko.com), more like "the freedom phone" ;-)
