What an amazing device!  The one thing that I wish was different was that there was not an exclusivity contract with AT&T.  Their network cripples the potential of this awesome technology.

The iPhone is really a life changer.  The selection of apps has something for every need and every skill level.  Games, productivity apps, photo and video editing apps, they're all there!

The "under the hood goods" just sparkle.  The processor is fast, the screen is bright and clear, and having the ability to do GPRS, Edge, or 3G and Wi-Fi is very nice.  Finally, add in the compass, GPS chip, and Bluetooth (that now supports stereo) and you've turned a phone into so many things.  The addition of the new type of camera to the 3GS is amazing.  Shooting video and having auto focus capability is very nice and really rounded out that part of the phone.

This phone can not only give you directions, make sure you're on your way there, show you things in the area, help you find your friends, remind you when to do it all, but it'll record you doing it all along the way if you want ;-)...

When I first got my iphone, I loved it.  It actually lasted the 2 years for my contract to run out.  It has been a good phone, but there is now a common problem with the Iphone 3GS.  Apple keeps upgrading the software.  The downfall is, that once you upgrade, you cannot go back and undo the upgrade.  So, like many others, I upgraded my software when the new software came out.  Yes, the new software does some neat things, like having folders for your aps.  However, the new software is too much for the 3GS phones.  My phone continuous gets locked up, and jams, and has many issues that it never had before.  But, this is now.

Before all of these issues and upgrades, I loved my Iphone 3GS.  It was everything I could ever want from a phone, and more.  Was the upgrade Apples way of making us all get new phones??  Don't know, maybe and maybe not.  Funny thing is, if that is the case...  it worked.  Many of us get upset with apple over things like that, yet we still love our iphones.  So, yes, like many others...  I recently did upgrade to an Iphone 4 because I love my Iphones!
