    I don't have any complaints. I still think it's a very minor update but it's your choice. It is faster and the video recording is a big plus. No complaints here but maybe others have some. My only complaints are with AT&T

    the 3gs is a good upgrade from the previous versions of the iphone due to the big increase in CPU and Ram. the phone is very very snappy and very smooth. VERY smooth OS and have no complaints as of yet. and if you decide to go the JB route, there is unlimited ways of customizing and ming the phone better than anything out there.. 3gs>storm

    Going from a 2G to a 3GS was worth every penny, but from a 3G to a 3GS it's not much of a big deal IMHO. I am waiting for my wife's contract to end then I'll get her the next generation iPhone or give her my 3GS

    I got a 3GS as my first iPhone and I've been very happy with it overall.

    One thing that caught me off guard was how complicated it is to save a file "somewhere" on the phone. On my WM phone, I could right click an email attachment and save it on the phone. It had an Explorer roughly equivalent to the OS X Finder and you could copy, move, cut and paste files at will. There is no Finder on the iPhone. And the iPhone does not show up as a drive in the OS X Finder. You can't transfer a file to it via USB. Storing a document such as a pdf on it requires an awkward 3rd party app and a WiFi connection. It's not a big enough problem to be a deal breaker, but it's something that caught me off guard.

    And once you do get the document saved via WiFi, don't expect to be able to select it as an attachment and email it to someone else...

    Another obstacle I didn't anticipate was not being able to edit Word and Excel documents without a third party app. You can read them but can't edit them. But since it's such a hassle to save a document on the phone to begin with, you probably won't be editing too many Office docs anyway. And if you do edit them, don't assume you'll be able to email the revised doc to anyone.


    Other than those minor issues, I think it's the coolest phone ever! Overall, I'd say go for it.

    Wow didn't know that that is interesting anyone else have these issues? Also with the 3rd party apps can you save the edited file and send the files to someone. Not that I get many file that you can edit on any phone I do graphic design and no phone out there can edit a photoshop or illustrator file LOL.

    By the way I am typing these on my iTouch... LOL to get use to typing on the phone if and when I get it

    The file saving is similar to the way iPhoto saves pictures. You can save them, but you can't pick where they are saved. They are saved within an area that is accessed through the application. There is no Finder that you can use to hunt around for them.

    I should also mention that I have only tried a couple apps for these things. I read a few reviews and tried a couple that were supposedly the better ones. I haven't tried every app that's available, so it is possible that there are some other options I haven't explored.

    I haven't found a way to email files yet either. Transferring seems to be limited to WiFi.

    as far as transferring files i found a app that seems to do the trick that you may be needing called Air Sharing (version 1.1.4.) check it out. works for Mac, windows and linux.

    if you were wondering where i got it from check out this site there are a lot more on there. let me know if you find something.

    I'm trying out one called iFile now, which sounds very similar. There are 2 problems though:

    1. It only works when your connected to your WiFi network. I tried it at Starbucks this morning and it was an ordeal. My MBP was connected to their WiFi network (you have to enter a username and password to gain access), but the iphone couldn't connect because it wasn't logged in. I opened Safari, but it didn't automatically go to their login page, because it preferred to connect via 3G.

    2. You still can't edit anything that you upload to the phone.

    These aren't dealbreakers. You can always email yourself anything that you want to look at on the road. It just seems a little odd that something so simple is so ridiculously complicated. And ironically, I can always carry my unused $30 ipod shuffle around in my pocket and use it as a thumbdrive.

    BTW: We're neighbors. I live in Deerfield Beach!
