I'm getting sick of seeing millions of iPhone threads around here, mainly because I'm posting them non-stop ;P So I'll be updating this thread with information relating to the iPhone rather than posting individual posts. I put it here in the Rumors & Reports section instead of the iPhone section because this thread will have the latest news on the iPhone.

If you find anything good about the iPhone, please post in here and I will update this first post.
