If you see the walk through in Apple's site, you will know a lot. Not many secrets left. I'm getting one for sure when my contract with Verizon expires in December. I love the headset too. This thing would be near PERFECTION if it had a bluetooth headset that would actually not fall off my head when I went running.

What the iPhone doesn't have (and a link to a couple of reviews): http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/apple/wha...ave-272571.php

Some of those are pretty basic features, surprised they don't support them... but who knows, maybe they'll upgrade them soon.

I am really hoping most of this stuff gets fixed through updates. Which they said they will be doing. I am waiting for Version 2 but if at version 2:

Songs as Ringtones
Games
Any flash support
Instant Messaging
Picture messages (MMS)
Video recording
Voice recognition or voice dialing
Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Streaming (A2DP)

Thse ones still arent available then i really won't be purchasing the phones. One Major one besides no flash support is the inability to use songs as ringtones. WTF? a phone that is ment for listening to music wont allow you to make songs as ringtones? My god danm KRZR does that.

Here's a pretty funny review of the iPhone by Pogue of NYTimes

http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/nytimes-p...iew-272554.php

hopefully it's not a repost

All of which are software updatable. Apple has said they will be concentrating on software updates for the iPhone. Expect an iTunes widget to come out for it so you can wirelessly download songs to iphone.

I stated that they could be fixed in updates. But why even have that needed especially flash and the ability to set songs as ringtones? That is absurd.

the thing that i care the most for is support for 3G. That's a major thing for business people, not that the iPhone is a business tool , but I'm sure some of us we'll wanna try it out at least for a while

Cant wait for people to get off their high horses and realize how terribly inoperable this phone is. However, nobody who spends $500+ is going to say anything negative out of embarrassment.

Its all good, I feel for you now. Good luck texting or dialing while driving with no tactile feedback. Oh, good luck also getting sucked into the iphone-only contracts too.

In the meantime, Ill laugh as my curve does everything better for less. Oh yeah, and mine is unlocked already, something the iphone wont be able to do.
