    Hey I'm trying to get my parents to buy me an iPhone, and I want them to see all the cool things that can be done with it, because they won't just take my word for it... Oh, and also, are the AT&T plans good? Because unless alltel has sim cards, I think ill have to get one... Thanks!

    I'm waiting for a 3g Iphone, but only because the Edge sucks in the UK so browsing and e-mail are pretty pointless unless you have a wifi connection - therefore the touch is a more cost effective option.

    Presuming that Edge in the US is more advanced and web browsing and e-mail are at a decent speed, the reasons for getting an Iphone are that your parents are buying you a device which is basically a PDA (Personal Digtial Assistant) which will become the standard for business executives in the near future. So they are investing in your future employment, and in your learning about a cutting edge technology.

    Well, to robcoffee, anyone who jailbroke the iPod Touch and uses it regularly is well-prepared for any business technology in the future. People just have to keep up with all the new programs and the iPod Touch is proof of that.

    But to dalton, I say wait. Good things come to those who wait. The iPhone was released in June 2007 and they already lowered the price a few times and increased the capacity. If I were going to get one, I would wait until the release of the next one. Something tells me it will release very soon and when it does, you better buy it as soon as possible.
