      I don't think I have ever seen you use the word "impressed" before regarding a phone
      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      I have to admit that if I was currently employed at a real job, I might have been tempted to pick one up mainly because you can actually surf the "real" internet. To bad you only get like 2-4 times the speed of 56k modem and it doesn't have flash support.

      Wifi should be fast. It's just the "sky" whajahoozis that is slow, IIRC

      ... Apple's new handheld would allow him to work some of the day outside the office, he said.
      "We don't have to be sitting in City Hall to be conducting city business," he said.

      Depending on alleged incompatibilities with some of the current business/office systems in use, he might not be able to.
      Has anybody seen a more complete list of what systems are compatible and which are not?

      judging by the time on the iphone, I don't think it is store bought

      These FAQ's are fascinating:
      Q. Is iPhone eligible for Wireless Phone Insurance?
      A. No. iPhone is ineligible for the Wireless Phone Insurance program offered to AT&T customers. iPhone is covered by the Apple Warranty. If you have Wireless Phone Insurance from AT&T, it will be removed from your line of service.
      and
      Q. Do I need to switch to a different rate plan if I upgrade to iPhone?
      A. If you’re an existing AT&T (formerly Cingular) wireless customer, you just need to add an iPhone Data Plan. (This may replace your current data plan. Your voice plan will stay the same) The iPhone Data Plan gives you Visual Voicemail, as well as Unlimited Data—includes both email and web—and texting, all for as little as $20. You'll add an iPhone Data Plan and sign a new 2-year service contract during the activation process. Discount eligibility for other devices will continue from the time of your most recent contract.
      Wonder why all the "special" treatment? Special data plan is required?

      I don't think I have.
      I know it's taken a beating in the media about the data speed, but to be honest, besides streaming youtube the speeds are acceptable for browsing etc. People are going to be blown away

      For someone who says they have zero interest in this thing and thinks it's overhyped and nothing special, you sure are spending a lot of time here and on the web researching and discussing it (along with many others - to be fair).

      There's a name for that, I think...yes, it's called trolling.

      I've been telling myself it's too expensive, not fast enough, not the right features, too fragile, I don't need a new cellphone yet, etc...
      But I stopped by my local store after work around 8pm and checked it out.
      The phone is BEAUTIFUL and it's worth every penny. If they weren't sold out I have one here with me at home right now.
      It's a beautiful design and the engineering is very forward thinking.
      I can only imagine all the tweaking and applications that will be coming for it very soon....
      Only thing I wish it came with is a universal dock insert so I could use the existing dock I have (I know it comes with it's own special dock)...

      I literally got the LAST ONE from my local Cingular store. Only had to wait in line a few minutes. Maybe I'll regret getting the 4GB one but I told myself several months ago $500 was my absolute limit on this product. The Burlington, MA Apple store seemed to have no shortage of them as of 730PM with absolutely no line.
      Just tried activating but apparently Apple is "processing" my activation and I will be emailed when its activated. Guess they are somewhat overloaded with activations??? Guess I'm waiting a bit longer.

      I'm hearing that the delays are on ATT's side, not Apple's.

      Apparently ATT caught up some on activations and a lot of iPhones were activated overnight.

      Still waiting for mine to be activated.
