I want to buy an iphone but I keep reading about all these issues with the iphone 3G and I was wondering if there was anyone who was at least mostly satisfied and liked their iphone 3G. I am sure that Apple has sold...millions (?) of iphone and I was wondering if it was the few 200 people who were not happy or if there are really a lot of issues. No one ever lets people know when things are going fine...only when there are issues. So I would like to hear your happy iphone stories.

Thanks.

I'm perfectly happy with my iPhone. I've seen a bit of the lag issue with contacts but other than that it's been fine.

Did the latest update eliminate most of the lag in the contacts?

Yes it did. They seem to zip by a lot faster than before but there is still a bit of lag. The lag is mostly getting started. Once it gets going it seems to be fine.

So far it is more reliable than my Treo 700P was.

I suggest checking out this article for a detailed explanation of what the 3G issues are rooted in. The 2.02 update is supposed to largely address that.

I like mine. It still lags and crashes apps after the 2.0.2 update, but it is still worth it. I had a WM6 phone before this and even though buggy I wouldnt go back.

I've had the iPhone 3G for two weeks and the device kills. Unfortunately, where I live, work and play (south suburbs of Chicago near Joliet), AT&T's network is TERRIBLE!! I am in Edge or No Service more than 3G even though AT&T's coverage map shows it all should be 3G. I went to the AT&T corporate store and they completely blamed Apple. I went over to Apple who ran diagnostics on the iPhone and told me it's working fine. So as painful as it is, the iPhone is getting returned and I'm moving to another network - one whose 3G service works where I need it to. If AT&T is good in your area, and I check with other iPhone users before you plunge, then the iPhone rocks. If AT&T sucks in your area, the iPhone becomes a pet rock.

Despite the thread I started before, I am overall very happy with my iPhone. Definite room for improvements in functionality and quality, but otherwise a great device. I would buy it all over again.

Happy with mine. I confident that all the issue that everybody are having fits over will soon be worked out. Most people just need to have something to complain about no matter what. You can't find a device that does or has ever done all the things that the iPhone can do.
