    I KNOW!!! I mean, why in the world do people keep talking about hang gliders, or bulldozers? And who cares about football, or Barry Bonds? I’m not personally interested in these things, so why do people waste time talking about them???

  2. It’s not a phone. It’s a multi-function device. If you only need/want a phone, a smallish iPod, a calculator, a video player, a digital photo library device, get one. If you want something that does all these, relatively well, consider an iPhone.

  3. You said, “STILL not enough to get me to spend hundreds of dollars on a phone that does so much more than I need a phone to do. I can understand the lust and I can understand that certain people need such devices … just, not me.”

    I can understand and agree. My cell phone does not even have a camera and I do not want it to. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    . . . . But, . . . that does not mean that I am not trying as hard as I can to come up with “reasons” why I “must” have an iPhone so that I can “justify” getting one. LOL

    Actually, I figure if I can change jobs so that my new job requires me to fly around the country, then I will need maps of all those new cities that I will visit, . . .. so . . . . iPhone would be a perfect solution vs carrying tons of maps. . . . . Right?? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    MDN word “economic” as in I need a good economic sounding reason why I need an iPhone !!

  4. Possibly a stupid question here, hope someone can answer it.

    For those of us who are on non AT&T areas; could this mean that somehow I could use a Skype connection as a work around?

    That probably shows how little in know about Skype but………..?
