For those of you that say the iPhone sucks. Hell no. It doesn't suck at all. I've had experience with alot of the top phones, and the iPhone might be missing some features, but its so user friendly, which is why people love it. If the iPhone sucked, it wouldn't be this successful, just like gsmarena said, it beat ALL WinMo device sales, and the iPhone 3g is only 1 mobile.

I dont use an iPhone, but I've had the 8gb iPhone and the 16gb iPhone 3g, both experiences were great. I'm now using the HTC touch diamond and I am very impressed with it. I soon plan to upgrade to the HD.

I really don't understand how you can say the iPhone 3g is a bad mobile. You say its not a smartphone, yet you hate on it like its a "crappy smartphone". Honestly, if it isnt a smartphone, compare it to phones that aren't smartphones and see how great it is in comparison. The iPhone has had killer sales. Obviously Apple is doing something right.

It's all BS anyway. You are playing by the rules of fat bankers buying all these stupid phones and wasting your time + energy arguing about which piece of plastic with some wires and chips in it is better. Don't be silly.

It is all BS

> In reply to geekfreek @ 2008-12-18 05:09 from PGjB - click to readYeah, cause the feauture packed iPhone is soooo expensive, that people that don't have one, can't afford one. You are spot on, that's exactly the reason why. The iphone retails in Sweden for about 180 euros and the iphone 3g for about 250 euros without contract, and nobody has that kinda money. Or it might be that smarter people actually need their phones to other stuff as well besides just listening to music like single cell underdeveloped organizms. I have Nokia E71 and my Iphone 3G friend wanted to trade it with me, i said f*** o** do i look like a unemployed bum to you?

All other features, phone / communicator / third party software features, are quite average. It is locked with un-removable SIM. I do not see how iPhone can satisfy my requirements and it would be much hassle for me.
I also like normal QWERTY keyboard. WinMo with NA 3G coverage or the upcoming S60R5 models are the only platforms in consideration for me.
