    Have you ever used one? They are fast compared to other devices, but not as fast as people imagine.

    Sadly no... I'm only 14 years old and My parents would never buy me that. I'm currently saving up now, and figured out at the rate I'm going once I'm 15 I'll have enough money for it. Then I can buy one, get a job, and pay my monthly payments.

    I've used them in the Apple store but I know that they aren't like that on the outside because they get full bars in the mall. Once I get one I will probably know.

    I didn't think it would be as fast as the commercial but I also didn't know it was that much of a difference.

    I've only used them inside an Apple Store as well. You have to turn off WiFi or else that will give you a boost.

    Yes because i own one. They are actually very fast with 3G speed especially when you have all bars of service. I use it in the city i live in a lot because at&t has great 3G coverage here.

    You guys have to expect advertisements to be misleading, almost all of them are in some way or another.

    I doubt anyone who bought the iPhone 3G because of that advertisement would test it out against the commercial and see if it was misleading or not (besides those people).

    Anyways, yes. Not a big surprise.

    hmm, I can understand the downloading attachments because they take time using wifi...i cant see it being faster on 3G
