Default Just Ordered my iPhone

It will be here Sept 25ish. I want it for the wifi and internet support. From Fido. Their $30 a month 3Gig traffic deal is expiring (so they tell me).

I dont listen to MP3's. Call me old school.

Anyone have one? Any pre-arrival advice?

Everyone I've spoken too that have one have been very disappointed so far. Not so much with the phone itself, but how much it costs to operate it whether its through Fido, Rogers or whomever else.

Plus, everyone has the iPhone nowadays.. When I say everyone, i MEAN like 90% of the young generation. It's not that cool to own anymore, but it is a sick phone.

So far the email functions are so brutal it is almost useless!

No Spam filtering?? I get over 1000 spam emails a day!! No "select all" or "mark all"

First day has been less than impressive.

for over $200, that phone would want to dial itself, never need charging, have a built in phone book (no extra charge) and be virtually indestructable.

Phones need to be phones.

yeah no kidding.

I've got a $30 phone from Loblaws (PC mobile). It's great: i can have a conversation on it.

Also I've got an ipod classic (80 gigs). It plays music and movies. It's great too.

However, i have been thinking of duct taping the two of them together for the "convenience factor".

UPDATE!!

I am digging my iPhone!! First, I jailbroke it. That opened the doors for all sorts of useful apps (like a video recorder) that Apple either didnt put on or wants to sell to you.

Second, I did the Gmail workaround to clear the spam.

Link: http://www.macworld.com/article/5882...honegmail.html

That has been absolute gold!

I have cracked the installer and can now load on any app I want. Besides games, there are a hundreds of useful apps. Just getting started on these. There are plenty of free and cheap apps if you dont want to crack the installer.

My next goal is to make it a modem to run my laptop through. My plan is for 6 gigs. As long as you arnt watching videos and stiff, you will be fine.

At this point, I'm giving a thumbs up!
