    I have the VOIP program and have successfully made 5 to 6 phone calls through the wi-fi using voipbuster. However I do not have a microphone and can not communicate back to the person I'm calling.

    Mics are available from a couple sources.

    For me the voip would be awesome as I live in downtown Chicago and everywhere I go I can usually pick up 8 - 10 networks. Same goes for people on college campuses, etc ..

    The only real advantage I see through the Iphone is a reliable (compared to the touch voip) means of communication. Iphone = monthly expense. Ive also heard the edge isn't all that impressive. I never use a camera - the bluetooth would be cool.

    good luck

    The thing that attracts me more is that i get a mic, bluetooth, camera, speaker phones, mobile phone + EDGE all out of the box for just $100 more...

    Well that was the reason i did not buy the iphone earlier but my cousin told me that he bought the iphone only and then cracked it and never had to deal with AT&T...

    I believe you still need a contract to use EDGE, even if its a different carrier to AT&T.

    I was in your position until Xmas. Nick and I had a little discussion which concluded that I wouldn't be happy until I set my hair on fire and went with the iPhone.

    At least my hair is short now.
