Well.. I dont think they used as many swear words as you did.

I actually also prefer the look of the 3g to the new 4g. I dont like that its thinner, and it doesnt have a sleek rounded look like the previous models. But I have not seen/held one in person so maybe I'd feel differently.

This won't make my Verizon as shitty as AT&T, will it?

after playing with my co-workers phone and looking at the new design. i kinda like the change, especially the flat back.

I actually also don't love the way it looks. It's way too box-y.

I am sticking with my iPhone until a 4G version comes out, I'm presuming we may see it next summer.

it could... but the assumption is that when the iPhone is offered on multiple carriers it will spread out the work load... which would actually help at&t as well, in theory.

there are plenty of other phones out there who's display is on par with what apple is releasing.

that said, the phone does look nice. i will give it that.

problem is i don't choose my phone by how pretty it is.

and it also still shatters pretty nicely...




... which is going to be twice as fun considering that apple is now making both sides of the thing glass.

It's also fun considering you still can't get insurance on these things. Thankfully I can get insurance on my Incredible because it's not a matter of if but when I will drop it and break the screen.

that you can't get insurance on the new iPhones is just an incredibly silly money grab.

i dropped my blackberry on the concrete at giants stadium and the thing shattered like the giants secondary. a simple phone call and i had a new one the next day. why can't apple do the same thing?

Good plan. Seriously, just get a high quality case and you should be OK.

they should offer some type of insurance, something like $6 a month and then $50 bucks for a replacement phone, with only one replacement in a 24 month period.

they would come out way ahead,
and it would look like they actually cared about their customers.

I put my iPhone on a fence when I was building a gate
I knock it off onto my driveway, it looked like that one ^

I went to apple store paid the $230 bucks and got a new (reconditioned) one.
I was good with that, my fault,

about 4 months later, that phone just froze
took it in to apple store again, they could not get it to work,
I said I just paid $230 for it, they said it was only guaranteed for 90 days.

I said now what? they said buy a new phone

the weight is on the back of the phone, and if it lands on the back of the phone it doesn't effect the screen... whereas if it lands on the screen a few times it goes "pop" and shatters.

the issue now with the new one is that the back, too, is now made out of glass... part of their attempt to make the signal better.
