"Great phone! Check the dates on these other reviews"4.5 starson by camron08
Pros: Reception, 3G Internet, Apps, GPS, WiFi, touch screen movements
Cons: Needs faster email checking
Summary: Before I finally bought an iPhone I decided to go to CNET and check some of the user reviews like I do when buying most of my tech gadgets. After reading what was said to be the most popular reviews on the site I was discourage. The phone I have been wanting fro a long time was getting terrible reviews on a variety of different topics. Then I looked at the date and saw that the majority of this bad reviews came During the months of July and August. Since then Apple has release updates to correct a lot of problems these people were complaining about. The latest one being in November. I sorted by date and found that the reviews had gotten much better and the next day I purchased the iphone.
I previously owned a 1st generation Blackjack. I was very happy with that phone until I bought the iPhone. The iPhone reception improvement alone was worth ditching my old phone. I have owned the iPhone for 2 weeks now and have never dropped below 4 bars. Even in my underground garage where my Blackjack did not get a signal at all. The other great features are the speed for the 3G internet, the GPS and all the stuff you can get from the App Store. The functionality of the phone as well is above anything I have ever used. Apple has thought of everything when it comes to utilizing the touch scree.
The only real complaint I have is with the email. Viewing, organizing, and moving emails works great with the touch screen. I just with it checked for new emails more often than it does. The majority of the emails I receive are via gmail and I find myself hitting the refresh button more often than I would like to.
In conclusion, this is a great phone and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quality phone with the added fun of all the different stuff you can do with this device. With 8 to 16Gb for memory, along with WiFi and bluetooth, the possibilities are endless.
