"Awesome! The World In My Pocket."4.5 starson by setolee
Pros: A well designed and the most innovative evolution of a mobile device. This is the one to beat. Plenty of applications to meet one's needs.
Cons: As everyone else has stated missing some good useful tools.
Summary: I would give the iPhone 3G 5 stars if 2 basic functions were included - MMS and Cut & Paste. I was somewhat of a skeptic and being a Blackberry favorite with TMobile for 12 years the reluctancy to change was prevalent. After a few months of researching for my next device I thought that the new Curve 8900 would give me the WOW factor. After waiting 2 months for it the disappointment in both the Curve 8900 and TMobile customer service cannot be expressed (see my review on the Curve 8900). It was either stick with TMobile and get terrible customer service (which use to be quite good) or take my chance with another service provider. Loyalty is a 2 way street. Having no choice but take a shot with ATT I got the iPhone and have never looked back at the last 12 years except to say to "myself why didn't I do it sooner". ATT has been impressive with their customer service and coverage. During a call to them and driving I lost my connection in a remote hilly area to my surprise the CSR called me back (TMobile never did this). Areas that I use to get 1 bar or no service with TMobile I now have 4-5 bars. To fully appreciate the iPhone you must make sure that full phone & 3G service is available in your areas of usage. The iPhone 3G has given me the WOW factor. Like having a mini computer in my pocket at all times. The screen size and resolution blows me away. Having over 15000 free and low cost applications available everyday life has just been made more convenient. With overall very good call quality I now have the quintessential mobile device. From my first hand experience - the Blackberry devices are great for true business users, but if you want a mobile device that can enhance overall conveniences in everyday life get an iPhone.
