I have a dock which charges the phone AND connects it to my stereo, I know that's an unfamiliar concept to an N95 owner being unable to charge from a USB and all, but the iPhone can do multiple functions through one lead.
I can also use Street View on Google earth to familiarize myself with landmarks on the way.
Regarding a data plan, I've had data bundled with my calls for the last 8 years, using a variety of handsets and starting with 14.4k WAP (shudder).
btw in Australia we don't have 3 year contracts.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Get the iPhone, simply because you have a Mac. ;)
If you want to be different, there's the Touch HD or Storm.

I guess you can afford a car accident!

I have one cradle in my car my iPhone docks in it, it serves a dual purpose:- music to my stereo and charger for the iPhone.
The touchscreen makes it very easy to navigate, Say Who (another free app) means I can voicedial.
I wear a Bluetooth headset and when a call comes in the stereo cuts out and I can take the call.
The new Google earth App comes in handy for checking out street view, so I know in advance which landmarks to look for, off course that works all over the world, I don't have to pay for additional map packs.
Btw in Australia we don't have three year contracts.

I don't have to hook my N95 up to the car stereo by wires like you. N95 via bluetooth thru the car stereo if i so choose!
Yeah the iPhone isn't the ultimate phone out there. It doesn't claim to be! LoL
You N95 fanboys with your over-rated phone don't really get it, and I guess you never will.
As for me, I'm moving on to an iPod Touch, and still thinking if I should go for the BlackBerry Storm or HTC Touch HD.
The iPhone was good, but it really wasn't that great of a phone.

I'd rather not pay for voice guidance or steal pirated maps.
i think the keyboard is way too small and the screen should be bigger and the letters should be larger

I always think how can people even put the iphone in their pocket, it's to long and to wide!
Having gps on the iphone with no voice guidance is stupid and useless and unsafe while driving! Are you going to look at the iphone while it's on your window mount when you're driving!
N95 has voice guidance with the gps!

But I still prefer Photoshop for everything. But if you thik about it with an App like this it's hard to whine about the iPhone's camera! Makes me realise the people who do whine about it haven't done their research!
Back to App browsing for me!

-can you access the msn messenger and use it on the iphone?"
You need to install software from the App store.
I use Palringo
(can also use Skype or other VOIP provider)
There are also other one's as well but I haven't used them.
"-the program which shows you the temperature. can you change it from Fahrenheit to Celsius?"
Yes, there are also thousands of locations to choose from, you can have multiple cities and flick between them.
A quick read through this forum will tell you the things it doesn't do, also check with the salesperson so you won't be missing out on functions you use on a regular basis.
Things you need before buying an iPhone
PC or MAC with iTunes
A wireless network at home is also VERY useful.
nick, 07 Nov 2008the HTC touch HD is actually far more attractive than the iphone. how do yooou feel!Glad I have OSX instead of WM.

Anonymous, 06 Nov 2008The only things that have changed in Nokia Symbian phones is the way they move things around.
