The reason why people are going crazy about the phone is
most people in America are not exposed to nice foreign phones, cell phone services usually distributes phones used my foreign consumers years ago
its greatly advertised
its made from apple. Because people think their laptops and computers are nice, they expect the same thing from the phone
This phone have got sucky features.. i wonder why people went to sought it out despite knowing its specs.. e beauty itself doesnt worth the price we are paying.. stupid handset.. wish Apple could come out with something smarter and nicer not some bimbo phoneS
i really liked this phone but no memory card slot, cant replace battery freely, expensive data plan sucks for having edge slow internet, getting stuck internet frequently, camera sucks, have to email yourself or someone else pictures, cant upload to computer or use memory card to transfer, not worth the money, unless someone can tell me otherwise

Please put your thinking cap on before coming to class. If you'd paid attention to what I was commenting on you would have deduced - my dear Watson - it was about manufactures initially giving exclusive rights to carriers in the USA. Canada, Rogers, http://www.rwireless.ca/, unless something has changed, is not in the US.
With regards to T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verison (US carriers), they don't have it. And, as far as I know, AT&T was the first exclusive carrier of the Curve. If I'm wrong, please educate us. And unlocked phone, and/or a subcontractor reselling service is not the same.
And as to the personal (ad Hominem) attacks and red herrings you introduce. Argue the issues of the iPhone - if you can. ;-)
Owners Overwhelmingly Happy with iPhone
“iPhone buyers have no regrets,” says Edward C. Baig (USA Today). Baig spoke with Jason Kramer, the chief strategy officer of Interpret, a market research firm that conducted a survey of recent iPhone purchasers. The study found that “90% of 200 owners said they were ‘extremely’ or ‘very’ satisfied with their phone. And 85% said they are ‘extremely’ or ‘very’ likely to recommend the device to others.” The findings, says Kramer “are ‘pretty much off the charts.’”

The Most Successful Product Intro of the 21st Century
“Apple’s iPhone could emerge as the most successful product introduction of the 21st century, new research suggests.” Conducted by Lightspeed Research, “the research findings are staggering,” reports Jonny Evans (Macworld). “Nearly 90 percent” of the respondents had heard about iPhone, and 32% of those who didn’t already own one intend to purchase one. In a separate survey, Lightspeed Research also learned that “nearly half of those who would like to own an iPhone stated that the benefits of having music, movie, internet and wireless all in one was the top reason.”

>Be very skeptical
>I like it anyway
The Curve isn't only available through AT@T, you know...Roger's has it, and a few other...
And stop posting all this stuff with dumb names...be a human being and use your name...
I'd suggest, highly, that people only get the iPhone from Apple directly or from an AT&T store. Not such a good idea to get them from the scalpers or sharks eBay or possible scammers.
"It is bs that this phone is only coming out on one carrier, i will not switch for it becasue i cant. It is utter bs"
Many phones start out this way. It's actually a smart move. The author of that comment would know this about SE, which never sends their phones to T-Mobile in the US. Nokia, which gives exclusive rights to T-Mobile and AT&T with selected phones. Blackberry currently only offers the "Curve" to AT&T, which by-the-way is the highest rated smart-phone. So, this is nothing new and you should know this.
I've had the V3 Razor, SE K750i, SE 910i, Samsung D500 and D600, and Nokia 8801. I currently have the Blackberry 8800 with T-Mobile. I was aware of all the restrictions and failings (if that what is some of you wish to call them) of the iPhone prior to purchase. With all that in mind, I like the iPhone and what Apple has done with it. Sure, it could be improved and have a few more features. All the nay-sayers can bash it all they want; I'm keeping mine.
So, this phone is good for many people. Like our mother's taught us, try it and see if you like it. If you don't, take it back.
I would love too see the iphone and prada next to each other in one of your phone video demonstrations to make a good comparison. Thank u.
good first try but id wait for the next version or they could team up with say nokia and build a proper version.

33 reasons to get iphone.
You are the funniest guy on earth.
As for the iphone I have it and yes it is not perfect (no mp3 as rings etc) but at the same time it is so sexy and it feels GOOOOOOOD.
Maybe the battery life will become a problem, so far so good.
Get the phone.
Shortly after activating his new iPhone, Michael DeAgonia (Computerworld.com) received his “ first phone call. A few moments after that, I got another. I was able to swap between calls, merge them, put them on hold, and separate them without hassle. Other phones, of course, do that as well. What’s the difference here? The multitouch screen and interface. I can confirm what early reviewers have already pointed out: it works like magic.” The iPhone, DeAgonia indicates, “ isn’t a collection of features, it’s a well-thought-out multi-function device with functions bound together by a drop-dead simple, drop-dead gorgeous interface. The sum is more than the parts.”
Calling its user interface “simplicity itself,” Bob LeVitus (Houston Chronicle) praises iPhone. “It’s easier to use than any phone before it, and it introduces a fantastic new feature known as “Visual Voicemail,” which lets you browse through all of your voice messages on screen and listen to them in any order.” As an iPod, LeVitus adds, iPhone offers “the best video functionality ever in an iPod. Everything — movies, TV shows, photos, video podcasts, and album art — looks absolutely fantastic on the high-res display.” And “speaking of screens, iPhone’s is huge, gorgeous, and touch-sensitive,” providing “rich, deeply saturated colors at an ultra-high resolution which adds up to a sharp picture.”
According to David Needle (internetnews.com), customers of NetSuite’s “on-demand, integrated business management applications” are already using iPhone to take advantage of its web-based services. It was “Apple putting Safari on the iPhone [that] made it a simple process” for the company to extend service to iPhone customers, says Sean Rollings, NetSuite’s senior director of product marketing. Using the built-in Safari browser, says Rollings, “ ‘salespeople will be able to get a lot of their work done on an iPhone. You have the ability to check inventory for the availability of a product and get an answer in real time.’”
