How much did it cost you for the phone? I am thinking of doing the same with my Verizon.

Re: iPhone

My phone died on my vacation, and I had to replace it. Being on TMobile, I had hoped to wait out the contract period (8 more months) but once it died, I went ahead and got the G1 phone. While good, I am guessing that the iPhone would easily blow it away.

Right now the 3GS 16GB is $199, 32GB $299. With a 2 year agreement of course.

I got the 16GB, which is plenty of storage space for me.

This makes no sense though, since anyone can tether (via usb) a blackberry and surf as much as they want.

By march the 3G S will probably be cheaper. The price is always jacked up when it's new

It has occurred to me that I might have the least knowledge of cell phones of anyone on this site.

light saber app is still my fav.

I'm loving the DC metro app. It'll tell me all the times and delays on the metro. It's priceless.

Ok, lets give it a try. Here is what I know how to use.

-Make and receive calls.
-Check msg. and call history.
-Can take and view pics. but I cannot send them or transfer them to
anything.
-I can store peoples # but it seems I have to learn how every time I try
to store one.

I think thats it. Your turn.

LOL

- Make and receive calls.
- Check message and call history.
- Take, view, and send pics.
- Store numbers easily.

But I don't understand which features I can't click into without getting a $2 data charge on my bill. That crap pisses me off, I get charged just for goofing around on my phone!

But all these apps and smart phones and IPhones and all this stuff, I don't get it. I see my phone as a tool, not some cool thing to play with.

That said if you put one in my hand I'd probably be like a kid on Christmas. Until someone does though, I'll make my calls and texts, hike up my pants real high, and drink my metamucil.

That's just it. I used to be the same way. But once you try it out the iPhone there's no going back. It's so much more than just a phone.
