I knew it. I called my friend's and my mom's at&t phones to see if they would work after all those iPhones started up. It worked cause we are still on our original phone plans. This so figures

the phone side of AT&T is working, it's their FUCKING Internet service.(home pages) - their e-mail side is bottlenecked because of the MORONS who can't follow directions to activate their new phones, so they're emailing everything & anything to do with AT&T.
Goes to prove it once again - you may have the money for toys, doesn't necessarily mean you have BRAINS!

four of my friend work at the apple store. Ones a genious, others are sales reps..etc.

Full time employees get a free phone in a couple weeks.

havent played with it yet, but friend who doesnt work at the store says its pretty sweet.

Im meh about the price tag...Ill wait a couple months and ask people how they like it. Also reception...cause Cingular(ok ok AT&T) along with every other carrier in the US has shitty reception where i live.

and fewest dropped calls my ass.

also friend said theres one glitch, it doesnt load some forms on some websites. aparently its being worked on.

I was watching the news on cable today and some guy who had waited hours to buy the first iphone was going into complete hysterical meltdown in front of the cameras 'cos he had just bought the first iphone at that particular store.
Why do people get so excited over a goddam phone!!!????

oh, and clapton, are you THE clapton as in Eric Clapton?

I think there's 2 mindsets working here - #1 Apple stuff & #2 "gadget addiction"
Apple makes some decent computers-pricey but good.

Then there's the gadget addiction - 1st was Ipod - everybody HAD to have 1, now it's the Iphone. Sure it's unique and it's a new generation of the phone but - the addiction is the "be the first one to have it mentality". Screw that, you can be their test pilots, I can wait. I'll save the $$$ and can find a bezillion more useful things for $500

I'm posting this from my iPhone and I don't care what anyone says this thing is freaking cool! I'll be the first to admit that I'm an Apple fanatic so maybe this isn't for everyone but I'm impressed.

(back on topic guys) - Iphone "catch" they don't tell you about. The data side of the phone (email, web browsing, etc) ONLY works in states that have AT&Ts' "Edge" service. You can use the blue tooth side (hassle central) but to make use or the "Edge Wireless" side your state must be a participant - Not All states are listed. check out AT&T edge website for details. (what a scam)
