I don't get the AT&T hate. I've had them since they were BellSouth in my neck of the woods (my dad used to work for them for like 20 years too) and they've never given problems.
Anyway, the MMS is excellent news.

Yeah honestly I've had At&T for phone and internet for YEARS and my internet has never crapped out on me, and my phone has really never given me any problems.

My parents had issues with both Bellsouth and AT&T in Central Florida, so it's been Sprint since then... no iPhone in the near future in that case.

I love all of the crazy gadgetry and accessibility that comes with having an iPhone, but considering the charges and actual quality as a phone, is it worth it?

Is anyone else aware of the Apple Quick Tips podcast in iTunes?

This is great stuff...a must for all Mac users.

A+

It has to do with accounting practices. When you buy an iPhone, Apple accounts for the device and software upgrades over a period of two years, which is the estimated typical usage of the iPhone before a user upgrades or breaks it or whatever.

When you buy an iPod Touch, Apple accounts for your purchase as one big lump sum. When they release firmware upgrades that are also released concurrently on the iPhone, they are actually required by law to charge you an upgrade fee.

I read an in-depth article on this and I believe that is how it works out. Weird, and somewhat fishy.

FACT: Nobody likes accountants.

64 Gb iTouch!!!

$399 versions of the iPod Touch will be 50% faster, and run OpenGL ES 2.0–the same as the iPhone 3GS.
