    iPod Touch > iPhone. Why? Because AT&T isn't involved with the iPod Touch. :D

    I'm basically waiting for the iPhone to catch up to contemporary basic functions (better camera, video calls) before I consider it too.

    one thing I'm not sure I can't get over tho, is tactile buttons for texting. sometimes your driving n u have to text, its a bit hard to type on the iPod/phone with ur thumb.

    If you drive and text at the same time YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

    Ah so yours is one of the 1.4 million missing iPhones huh? :lol 

    Yeah I'd think I'd consider the iPhone much more if the carrier wasn't restricted to AT&T or that I'd have to hack/crack/unlock the phone to use another carrier.

    do you have sub contactors asking for last minute confirmation for site adjustments while you rush across town for a presentation? i dont think so kid.

    hit me back when your world view extends googling 'knowledge' from the internet.

    I llike the iphone itself, but I really wish you could take the battery and sim card out instead of it being just like another ipod.

    Driving and texters are the people I fear will pass through red lights and t-bone my car. If you're looking down at a screen how can you pay attention to everything in front of you?

    You'd think in a situation like that Murphy's law would kick in and you'd have plenty of stopped time/traffic jams to text during.

    all im saying is, from my experience with multi touch interface typing, typing if quite deliberate. i dont have big fat fingers and even i have to take care with typing using multi touch.

    I know exactly what you mean. When I had my RAZR I could type with just my thumb and know exactly what I was sending. With my Q, the full keyboard makes it nearly impossible to text or send email while I drive; I only try it at a red light now because it can be very dangerous. I like the full keyboard, but in your situation, KA, I much prefer the "old style" of a regular phone as you mentioned.

    Any kind of voice chat will never happen on the iPhone. AT&T doesn't want you getting around using their minutes for calls. That's why you can't get Flash player on it because people would use Skype.

    I have a love/hate relationship with my iPhone. Most of the hate does come from the AT&T side of things.
