    Hi everyone, I'm going to tell you about my switch from the iPod touch to the iPhone and why I did it!

    Okay, so it's January 2007--and I hear that Apple would be making an "iPhone". Being me, I thought it was just crazy Apple fanboys getting too excited over the idea of a phone from Apple.....BAM. What do ya know, the iPhone is announced. I looked at pics of it in the glass enclosure with awe, and then I notice that it's surrounded by Apple fanboys that were creaming their pants.....finally, I saw the price. "No thank you, Apple." I thought.

    September 5th:
    A touchscreen iPod based off the iPhone, YES!!! 300 dollars, YES!!! So, in the middle of November I snatched one up at Circuit City. I was so happy--I loved it.

    Then a very sad thing happend to me, I carelessly left it in my gym locker(someone looked at my locker combination while I was dialing it in), and it was stolen along with my RAZR V3XX. I searched everyone(yes, people) for it.

    Two days later, the iPod mysteriously showed up in my locker. I set a passcode lock, so I bet they weren't too happy with that. I never really used it that much after that. I noticed that I had the negative black issue, and in January, I was ticked off about the app upgrade.

    March:
    After having a fun time at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, I stop by the La Cantera Apple Store. The first thing I walked to was the iPhones. My brain exploded. I NEED AN IPHONE. As soon as I get home I start loking for deals on used/refurb iPhones...they're all retail price(why even the used ones?). So I quit the search and 3 days later I see something in my RSS reader: Cheapo Refurbished iPhones for sale online from AT&T
    I ordered it right away, and sold the iPod for $270 with two cases.

    The switch:
    Coming from the iPod touch: the iPhone was pretty easy to get used to(with the exception of music and video being replaced by the iPod app). I love texting compared to the Samsung Sync I used to have. But what I really love to do is use Seeqpod over EDGE: any song, anywhere, anytime.

    I will never go back to a regular cell phone again. I am going to buy a second generation iPhone in the future.

    basically what happened to me, except I don't have edge, but I have AT&T. No way I'm paying $20 extra. So its like a phone and ipod and speakers, no edge though. I still love it though.

    I want an iphone. When I save enough money, Im gonna buy one.

    One question though, if you restore, does it erase your contacts?

    Yes and no. When you restore, yeah everything is gone. But when you sync to iTunes after that, all of your contacts/settings/etc are restored. iTunes backs up your iPhone everytime you sync.

    Lol, I didn't go on much. I was with my aunt and cousin(4 year old). But I have a season pass for the 08 year, so I'll ride them all eventually.

    So far I lke the Tony Hawk one. My brother and I went on the same side of the car and it was insane. It felt like it was gonna spin right off the track.
