    Exclamation Is the iPhone that great?
    Hello you all,

    I just got an iPhone yesterday and I was happy with it until I discovered that I can't send pictures via texts which really sucks. I also didn't like that I can't send forwards, for example, if someone send me a joke i can't send it to another person (at least i haven't discovered how to do that) I knew about it's video capability but if it had it was a plus, also it doesn't have alarm set up..however i downloaded an appl for alarm and it didn't work....considering that according to most people it is one of the greatest phones I think its usage is limited.

    Something I do like about the iPhone is the internet (3G) and that it's visually atractive. I also like the videos and be able to download fun applications to the phone. The maps are really good too. And finally the Ipod.

    I'm considering to change my phone since I love to text pictures and take videos. I rather get a cool phone, maybe not as coolest the iPhone visually talking, but a phone that I can really use with no limitations.

    What you all think of my opinion about the iPhone?

    Doesn't really matter what our opinion is. You should get what works for you. That won't be the same of any piece of electronics for everyone. Choice is good.

    If the iPhone doesn't have the features you need, then swap it for a phone that does. No need to get one just because everybody else is.

    Also, the iPhone does have an alarm. Just go to Clock and there's an alarm icon on the bottom.

    I never really got into the iphone that much. I'm happy with my storm. Go back to the AT&T store and look around at the other phones.. A phone that might suit your needs better. Maybe take a look at the blackberries or windows smart phones.

    I like mine but there are very close friends of mine who hate the iPhone and I mean hate. That is how I got mine, from a friend who bought one and can't stand it. I tried it, loved it and bought it.

    I really love the iPhone but not everyone will feel the same way. Get a phone that works for you and you feel comfortable with.

    Only thing I miss and feel should be included on the iPhone is Copy/Paste.

    I love the iPhone. I can never go back to just a regular phone. Think of the no forwarding feature as an anti-spam feature. Do we really want to hear the joke you may think is funny?

    My theory is this...it is not that great. Until you try something else. Seriously. However, different strokes for different folks.

    If you're not using the apps to their full potential, you're going to miss the luster of the iPhone.

    Not everyone is into the whole app thing which is why I wonder why some people even have the iPhone when they have like a half a page of apps. I guess it's a status symbol more than anything.

    I only have half a page of apps but those are apps that I use multiple times during the day. All of them get used.

    I'm not suggesting that you go out and get 20 pages of dumb applications, but the applications on the iPhone are really what sets the phone apart from other phones. If you've become content with the half page then more power to you with a non-cluttered interface.

    I easily filled up two pages my first day of applications/games that I use often, but maybe everyone has different taste/needs.
