"Great Function, Too fragile, AT&T is Mediocre at best"3.0 starson by cofehog
Pros: Excellent interface, excellent touch responsiveness, great apps, excellent integration with MacBook (via MobileMe)
Cons: Way too fragile (glass breaks very easily), AT&T network is slow even with full signal, No protection plan from AT&T or Apple, AT&T voice quality is so-so when compared to Verizon
Summary: I switched to the iPhone from Samsung Omnia shortly after purchasing my MacBook Pro. I am disappointed in AT&T's network speed (or lack there of) and poor voice quality when compared to Verizon's service on my Omnia.Update on my visit to the Genus Bar for repair of the broken glass; It was covered under warranty but beware, they asked me what happened (I said I was not sure - which was true) and carefully cleaned and inspected my phone for any evidence that it had been dropped. The Genus rep took my phone to a back room and replaced the glass in about 5 minutes. Not sure how they do it, but they did it FAST and it was the same phone I brought in.
Trick to extending the battery life is changing the sync (MobileMe or Yahoo Mail, etc) is to change the update method from Push to Pull. I can get 1-2 days of battery with varied usage.
Phone glass is VERY FRAGILE. Mine simply cracked and I am not sure why. Have an appointment at Genius Bar at local Apple Store - but from what I have read, the replacement of the glass could be free or cost as much as $299. The phone works fine (crack is from the bottom left corner and extends to the center button).
Over all, I really love the seamless integration with my MacBook Pro via MobileMe. No wires needed to keep my calendar, mail, and contacts in-sync.
It's a beautiful product that offers excellent form and function. What's needed is options in carriers, service plan, and a more durable screen.
