So now im waiting for a call without a working phone.

Thank you Apple.

I HATE THIS DAMN THING.

It lags out, sometimes you hit a button and it wont do anything, you see the visual of the button being hit but nothing happens. You hit one part of the screen it can randomly hit another, it will randomly have calls fail, it will randomly not let me slide my finger to answer the call.

The problem is that I have one, now I need one. All off apples products are designed like crack, you have it once you need it. Now my car is rigged to this thing and I need it for music and all of my phone data and email, someone should write a damn book "How Steve Job's took over the world with an MP3 player."....


PS Can yall see if you can connect to the itunes store?

i have had it since the day it came out... it has been replaced 4 times for various reasons, i think it would be a really good phone if i didn't have my old blackberry to compare it to.

i can't say i have any problems with the device itself. the service provider is a whole new story though...

at&t has failed me so many times i can't even count it. every time i really needed service, it wasn't there. seeing the "more bars at more places" commercial really pisses me off every time i see it.

yeah... i love how they say "fewer dropped calls" the only reason there are fewer dropped calls is because instead of dropping the calls, it just never has enough service to make the calls in the first place. fuck at&t... fuck them up their stupid asses.

Alltel FTW! They may not have stores in every area and they don't go for the stupid licenses to carry the newest phones. Sure it took them almost 2 years to get the razor and thats fine. BUT they are fucking awesome. I never ever drop calls no matter where I go. They blow the doors off the other providers, none of them can match their service or plans plus they all use Alltels towers. There was only 1 time I couldn't get service and that was at a ski resort in WV, Cingular paid some stupid amount of money to be the only tower allowed on the mountain. The best part was even the cingular phones got crappy service haha.

alltel just runs off verizon and sprint. they are cdma, which is the US tends to get better service, but won't get any service anywhere else in the world practically.

Everyone that i know that got the iphone loved it for the first few months and told everyone to get it. Then after a while they started despising it and were telling people to not get it. Not sure why but its happened to like 5 of my friends.

LOL, someone should tell them bars don't mean shit.

I've been in places where I've had 1 bar (Verizon), and a friends had some other service with full bars and can't make a call. My phones have always worked where others haven't.
