Unfortunately I live in Canada, so no iPhone for me. I'll have to wait for it to be launched here or until someone hacks the iPhone to allow SIMs other than AT&T; (which is probably not just a hardware unlock but I'm guessing the software has smarts in it as well). I also understand that even if you were to buy an iPhone from the US you can't activate / get subscribed unless you have a US credit card (much like they check with iTMS purchases). Apparently you can't use it as a widescreen iPod until you activate it / start paying AT&T; money. This is apparently an attempt to stop people just buying it to use it as a widescreen iPod!!!!

If I lived in the states I'd be one of those guys that got up at 6am this morning to start lining up

Pink Razr? Um, are you a chick?

Nah, my old phone was dying, the charging port was damaged on the inside. I wanted to get one of those Razr phones, but the silver ones were sold out, and it would be two weeks before another shipment came in. Since I don't have a land-line, it's bad if I go two weeks without a phone. I've meant to get it changed with a silver one, but never got around to it.

I live in Canada too. Although I could buy the phone on howardforums.com ....its basically useless because, even with the phone unlocked so it will accept my rogers sim card....the browsing feature wouldn't work....sorta like having a blackberry without the PIN data feature. You look like a baller but in reality you are a 25 cent crack lady

Saw one in person the other day, much thinner than you would expect, I was quite shocked at the awesome slim size of it.

Pretty much what you would think of it, an awesome phone that does a bunch of neat stuff.

Got one, sold it. I'll wait till the 2nd or 3rd version to get one for myself. I'm happy with my Blackberry Pearl for now

My brother got one and it is pretty cool. The internet capability is awesome when you are in a "hot spot." The camera on the thing is incredible.

I would like one, but I have about 9 months left with Verizon. I am also on a plan with my wife and in-laws that lets us call free to anyone with Verizon. This is huge as my boss is also with verizon and I use about 1000+ minutes each month just talking to him. If I end up going to work with my brother I will be on his company's AT&T; plan and we will just give my son my phone.

My best friend has one. It definitely has some cool features, but I spent about 3 hours with him the other day at baseball game and it locked up 3 times where he had to reset it.

I would definitely wait for the next generations to come out . Right now they are on ATandT's slowest network with no upgrade option. Kinda crappy for a 600 dollar phone.

I didn't want one... until I handled one at the Apple store... Walked out with the "cheaper" 4Gb model... Should have gotten the 8Gb model - for the video.

So yeah - EDGE sucks, but all the other features are pretty decent. A pain you need to "unlock' the phone to answer it!
