Can the Voyager get a real touch screen? My finger hurts from trying to get the thing to respond.

Can the iPhone get real messaging? My wallet hurts from thinking about getting a camera phone that can't do MMS. Can the iPhone have a real battery? My patience hurts knowing I would have to send it back to Apple just to get the battery replaced when I can go to any VZW retailer to get a battery for the Voyager. Can the iPhone get some real protection? Everything on my hurts knowing that if something happens to the iPhone, it's FULL RETAIL PRICING BABY!!!!

No MMS=deal breaker. I've been using my 3G ATT Tilt for a while now and love it. The iPhone only has a couple things going for it Screen size and media.

Windows Mobile has had all these features for a while now and has so many 3rd party apps. The only thing Windows is lagging in is internet browsing and a more simple user interface. As processor speeds increase on WMobile devices and VGA screens are added the lag will be gone and will soon be just as snappy and quick as the iPhone with equally nice displays.

All the while with a clunky interface most people hate and want to cover up with front ends. I know of absolutely NOBODY that wants to copy the Windows Mobile interface to put on another device. I know of projects for every device, including tons for Windows Mobile, that try to make Windows Mobile look and behave like an iPhone. The clunky interface is why I hate Windows Mobile. That, and the crap web browsing experience, shoddy stability, and crappy non-responsive SINGLE TOUCH screen that is more or less crappy (compared to iphone). The entire single touch resistive display feels so outdated and last generation compared to iPhone. If you have ever played with iPhone for any length of time, you know the touch screen on ALL WinMo phones are not as responsive to finger touches.

you know, unless youre outside and wearing gloves. the iphone ui is wonderful, there is no denying that. the problems arise in its software, and apple still falls short. ui shortcomings can be overcome, especially on an open platform, but hardware limitations cannot.

nothing stated about the carrier at&t signed a "multi year contract" with apple over the iphone. that contract was 2 years ago. Speculations were from 2-5 years length. If the contract was 2 years, that means this year would allow other carriers to obtain the iphone. Another loophole is this is iphone 3g. The contract was for the first gen phone. It IS possible that the iphone may come to verizon.

No it's GSM, VZW is CDMA - And the contract with ATT was for 5 yrs... It's only been a year

This phone won't come to Verizon for a long time, if ever. We turned them down once already

Apple has a 5 yr multi-phone contract, So any Apple + Phone product is only for AT&T in the US. At the end of the 5 yrs, Apple can do whatever they want with the iphone.

Who cares if it comes to VZW or not? Too many great phones out there without firmware problems for Verizon to have. Besides, why would I want an expensive multimedia phone that doesn't do MMS?

what people dont seem to be thinking about is the fact that now, with the app store and the developer kit (releasing early next month) you can add almost any type of functionality developers are willing to create... and boy will they be willing to create everything

Who cares about AT&T and Verizon, AT&T will not put insurance on any of thier so called smart phones. I was a AT&T customer until i had one problem out of my iPhone and apple wouldnt fix it and then neither would AT&T

As far as I can tell they left mms and video recording out which is the reasons I didn't get the 1st iphone not the price and it stays the same I send/recieve too many mms not to have it. I just don't get why they leave that out it makes no sense.

so that its not a perfect device, it is apple were talking about, they design their products to be replaced every year

Doesn't have to be perfect, but it should at least be capable of offering options every other cell phone offers.

If they design their products to be replaced every year then they should fire the guy who made my Ipod Video about 3 years ago. Moron

Will it come with a memory card slot or would it still be internal memory only?

Do you really need more than 16GB. It's a phone.

Also, doesn't seem to have vibe feedback when typing nor the option to flip the phone to landscape. What excatly did they change besides 3g and the fruity shiny black? Metal was so much hotter

Im sticking with VZW... way better service and phones. Lg dare and BB Thunder are going to blow this phone away. Seems as though they made no real changes. Nice 3g tech on a network that can barely offer it

I don't think this phone offers stero bluetooth either... For a phone with a built in ipod that is rediculous. Nothing special here at all
