I was afraid of this too and it did indeed feel very light and cheap like a Sammy phone but after playing around with it for a couple hours it seemed to get heavier. I did not like this though because it made it hard for me to illegally drive and talk on the phone at the same time.

And I don't have your idrive problems because I'm have an 08 model aka the antiquated model.

It did not feel that way in my hands, just like a lighter and thinner 4S which it is. It still feels like an expensive phone with the metal and glass, moreso than those plastic-bodied Droids.

I'm sure it will feel just fine. I was simply making up stupid excuse to complain for no reason

I got the phone this afternoon. I think its pretty cool. The LTE is really fast compared to the previous 3G on my 4.

They should be making the adaptors soon that will solve all our problems !

Just got mine this afternoon. I usually dont connect via usb anyhow since I have a 160gb iPod for portable music and I just loaded up 5 gigs of music into my car. I will try some of the other stuff later tonight.

Pandora in Apps should work fine as long as you have BMW Apps and the latest version of Pandora. As for text messages, see this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=12677768

That is hilarious... looks like driving underwater?

There is actually a ferry that runs that route... so it isn't really inaccurate. But not the most efficient way to get there.

Edit: That actually looks like the "walking" route. So it is actually the most accurate and fastest way if you are on foot.

My point is that there are no line waiting iPhone Fantremists* around here. Not the best comparison.

I did. I see the Fandemonium at the Rectum. It's a profound Fannomenon to me.
