    Yo.
    I'm somehow confused whether i'll buy the iPod touch or an iPhone.

    I know both can me modded and such, but that's not my point.

    I also want to go on the internet anytime.
    especially at school, without getting the school's internet
    and found out that most websites are blocked because of the filter system.

    ..but, how fast is the EDGE network?
    i've been hearing its pretty slow. or whatnot

    ----
    But, I got my first phone, which is a MotoRAZR around august.
    and buying an another phone is somehow pointless, as well.
    Plus, Im kinda worried about the bills and such.


    Say, iPhone users.
    is the EDGE network fast or slow?
    what do you think about the iPhone
    and is it worth it?

    Thanks.

    The edge network is slow.

    If you need the phone option then go with the iphone. If you do not need the phone option go with the touch. You can get everything on the touch that the iphone has besides the phone option.

    EDGE?.I see.
    HOW sloooowpokey is it?

    I'm just considereing going for the iPhone because of its internet access.
    I can be careless about me having no SMS and all of that.

    But, if i just have a week using the iPhone's internet, i woulda judge it if its worthit or no

    Anyway, I see.
    thanks for pointing that out to me.

    BTW, iPhone user?

    You can't get the camera, voice recorder, and bluetooth!

    No, but you can get that on a £40 phone, and save over £600.

    Remember also that the bluetooth on the iPhone is extremely limited also - You can't transfer files or other information, and people have had problems pairing the set with some bluetooth headsets.

    I would recomend the iPhone over the touch (only if you have AT&T already though). If I didnt have dumb old Verizon, I would definitely have an iPphone right now, but I decided the Touch is the nxt best thing.

    Thanks for all your replies.
    I have AT&T...but since im a teen and still in highschool.
    i have limited phone plan [family plan] with 600minutes, no text/SMS and data

    But see my first post, i just had my 1st phone on august, and i may sound spoiled if i change my phone in less than a year.[i have to keep my RAZR for 2 years so i can get a new one after renewing the plan]
    at the same time, i still like the internet access

    back to the point
    @Gabe,
    EDGE network, is I believe..also works on T-Mobile [assuming you live in the US]
    About the internet speeds, I'm still asking people on this thread if its fast or what.
    becuase if its slow, i'll just get a touch.
    But I recently heard that its getting a little faster.
    like 200KBPS?
    or a little less.

    well the iphone needs unlimted data plan unless you want your parents to bleed money for every megabyte you use
    also edge network is really slow can sometimes be dailup loading times for pages

    200kb/s ?

    That would seem pretty bad considering most wifi networks are going to be at least 1mb/s


    I too have thought about getting a iphone instead so I could have the possiblty of having Internet anywhere, but I get bad motion sickness looking at things in the car so wouldn't need it while driving. Around here where there's businesses I pick up at least 4-5 networks and 1-2 are unsecure.

    Anyway I hope that helps you choose whatever you decide to do.
