I'm an iTard! I bought an iPhone!
Got the 8GB model this past Friday and haven't looked back! It's definitely an impressive piece of hardware (just like me :evilgrin:).

Any other iTards out there?

3. Excellent actually ...
haven't had a problem with calls and they have what's called the "Edge" for internet related access. The nice thing is you can jump on anyone's wireless signal and use theirs; the upstairs company has one and I'm getting email, etc no problems.

2. No
It's not that I am not intrigued by it-
I just don't like cell phones that dont flip closed.
All the screen scratches would make me mental.

How do you like it?!?!

4. I like it a lot ...
I'm a Mac person and think it's one of his best products. And I will be getting a guard to cover the screen to minimize that problem.

9. Hm, I was THIS ->
It's hard, at the big Apple store, to NOT do it.

I decided to hold off on this gen, as originally planned, but it's hard to resist!!!

13. I work a second job and they had a network crisis ...
worked a couple hours for 2 nights, then took a vacation day to finish it. I told them this project was to be treated differently than my regular tasks and charged them $700 so I could buy the phone. I was just gonna put money aside and buy it when I saved it up.

That worked out nice for me.

12. If I had the money
I'd already own one. The AT&T part sucks but otherwise I really want one.

14. I want one without the phone part..
Keep the wifi so I can check my e-mail or visit websites when I hit a hotspot. $499 for 8 gigs and I would buy it in a second. I don't need a phone.
