I checked a couple of local places, and the cheapest speaker fix was $60 plus tax. $20 would be fine, but $60 for just the speaker? Screw that....

I guess the whole charging dock has to be changed out.

Have used CNN.CN to repair 2 or 3 iPhones; seems like good quality and cheap. Make sure you get the tools or you'll be pissy at yourself.

I'm sitting at 5.2GB usage for the month with 7 days to go yet this billing cycle. I don't tether at all. Just use the browser, Facebook, and Netflix.

Waiting for it too.

The thing is that the wait to get it will be INSANE unless you go outside and camp out...

If there is one company I have completely lost faith in is certainly RIM. Their OS is a POS. Unless they start getting Android, then they might get somewhere. Even then, their hardware is out dated.

Most Blackberry users use it for BBM. Now with ios5 coming out with imessage, all blackberry has is their BES.

But, I believe it's the first phone coming out with Near Field Communication (NFC). So you can "swipe" your phone to buy shit. Which should be the end of credit cards.

Elaborate please.

Their OS (even OS7) is dated as shit, yes. However, when you pair a lightweight OS with good specs, it really flies. In fact, the hardware is overkill in those things, and the only reason the specs are so unnecessarily nice is because people buy phones these days just based on hardware specs alone, oblivious to who the manufacturer of the device is, how bloatware and updates affect the device, etc...

So, again, how is the hardware outdated? Maybe they should have put a dual core into a phone with an OS which can't even use it? Maybe 768MB of RAM just isn't enough? How is the hardware in any way outdated?

Between iMessage and RIMs probably loss of decent battery life since jacking up their specs I just don't see a reason to stay with them.

Yeah the consumers' (generally) ignorant demand for hardware specs that far outdo the abilities of the OS, combined with RIM thinking their legacy OS would be OK for this long.... Recipe for disaster. They'll be OK once QNX hits the handsets IF they don't release it in beta form again (PlayBook). Actually the PlayBook was more alpha than beta in the beginning. Now it's in a beta stage.

Android pumps out crazy specs. Apple has the "it" factor. Both have amazing app ecosystems. RIM is now getting away from the only categories where it had a strangle hold (battery life, security, etc...) to play in the others' backyard. It's gonna be rough for them but who knows. TAT is good people. QNX is a good base for a mobile OS. The main problem now is that the bloggers and press are all piling on the "RIM is dead" bandwagon, and these days that's how people get their tech "knowledge". To be honest, that's RIM's biggest problem at this point.

I'm not sure why everyone is foaming at the mouth for the next iteration of the iPhone though. What practical improvements will it really carry? That's what I want to know. Other than reliability issues, what's wrong with the 4?
