    Dr. Young I think you just talked me out of getting an iPhone.

      With my Treo I can connect to the Internet, then do dial-up networking from my laptop to the Treo, in essence getting internet connectivity through my phone. Not too bad speed, just under ISDN. Does anyone know if such a think is possible with the iPhone? That might tip the scales for me, assuming the signal was strong where I live and the price was right (sadly, no DSL or Cable where I live.)

        Here is a favorable review of the iPhone but one that lists ten mistakes made in its design
        http://rake.sh/blog/2007/07/02/top-1...one-interface/

        1. No contact search.
        2. SMS not a main function
        3. Calendar entry requires extra clicks
        4. Rotating screen doesn't always work
        5. Once into the Maps, you can't back out without entering an address
        6. No period on the front virtual keyboard, requires a shift.
        7. Entering text in safari doesn't work reliably.
        8. No emoticon on the keyboard
        9. Cursor control in a pain
        10. No character count in SMS program

        #7 seven seems to be pretty serious to me. This means that I won't be able to use the iPhone to enter posts into CareCure. Of the videos that I have seen, most people's fingers are too big for the virtual keyboard. I am not sure how efficient it would be to type long messages. I have gotten really good on my blackberry.

        Wise.

            The ever increasing no stick use does it for me. I use a PowerBook as well, but I'm still waiting for the day when a device can use finger or mouth stick with no adaptations.

                Zero, that is the complaint that the iPhone does not allow you to use it like a modem. I use a sprint vision phone (Sanyo) for that purpose when I am travelling in the United States. I can also do that with my blackberry but my sprint connection in unlimited.

                I decided that I am going to wait on the iPhone until the second generation. I am pretty much addicted to my Blackberry. It does everything that I want a phone to do.

                  This description of what one user does with his iPhone is really quite convincing.
                  http://theshapeofdays.com/2007/07/05...d-my-life.html

                  So, in less than two months after the launch of the iphone, many fixes and add-ons are now available for all the things that were lacking at the launch:
                  • A replacement battery is now available for the iPhone (Source).
                  • A hack that allows you to use the iPhone EDGE connection on your laptop (Source).
                  • Over 300 apps are now available for the iphone (Source), ranging from all sorts of games to apps to get to your Bank of America account, cookbooks, Chinese-English dictionary designed especially for the iphone, and apps to order almost everything from flowers to pizzas.
                  • Leaflets... http://getleaflets.com/
                  • A buglist... 68 of them, found and tested. http://www.applehound.com/node/104
                  • An iphone simulator on your desktop so that you can program an iphone on your desktop without having to use one http://ajax4iphone.com/2007/07/iphon...for-designers/

                  Well, apparently, they are still pretty much sold out.

                          I think this brings a new meaning to this:

                            I am sure that it won't take the Apple engineers long to come out with a fix that will eliminate the ability to unlock the phone by hackers.

                              yup, assuming it's an easy thing for Apple to "fix," it'll end up in a software update. They did that to undermine the Hymn Project (removing DRM from iTMS-downloaded songs) with iTunes.

                              jerks... haha.

                                Ahh, but I am sure that somebody will figure out a hack. When the Asia iPhone comes out, it will not be tied to a particular service provider. In Asia, where the cell phone market is much more competitive, I am sure that there will soon be iPhone look-alikes that can go VOIP over wifi. Apple will have to allow their iPhone to be able to do VOIP in order to compete.
