You got the best phone out there. If you enjoy tinkering to get a phone to run smooth, or less than stellar graphics, there are plenty of other phones out there. I've had a number of them, none compared to the iphone. I have a nav feature that tells me turn by turn if I'm without a GPS, and it comes in very handy. I can quietly listen to music, and it tells me what I need to know (fades the music down and back up) without having to look down at the GPS/phone. It's a tiny laptop, basically. I've had one for years. My wife and kids all have Iphones, some passed down from me, some purchased new. Otterbox is your friend. When I run, my route and time (and prompts as I specify) are tracked through an iphone app and whispered in my ear. When I ride, the aforementioned nav app and map apps let me route or reroute. Need a starbucks? Repair shop? Steakhouse? Takes only seconds. It's one thing to know the overall rain chance by percentage. Checking hourly or watching moving maps lets me much more accurately assess my chances of rain on a ride. Video chat and photo messaging are nice when you're on the road away from the family. Hi res pictures are helpful when letting the shop know about a problem or part you need. Some of the other brands come fairly close, but just aren't as sustainably fast, robust, or gifted in the display department.

it sounds like a lot of people are drinking the apple kool aid.

Well, I was in an area with Wi-Fi when I used the phone on the internet yesterday. I'm thinking that it was faster than the DSL I have here with this older Sony laptop.
As I ask around, using the weather as an example, everybody thinks their selection for an App is the best...kinda funny, OM
