Hopefully their OS 6 revives them.

Their software is clunky, old, dated, and not all that friendly. Their phones are falling way behind as well. And their strategy to just keep the same phone model and add tiny little things to it over the course of every 2-3 years isn't going to help in the long run as their hardware is getting dated now as well.

I think the iPhone 4 update for the 3GS works just fine, I also note that the iPhone 3GS has a pretty poor battery life with any of the Bluetooth and the Wireless featrures enabled - otherwise the new update iOS4 works quite nicely and I really love the drop in images.

Multi-tasking is excellent and glad it has come ... Though a lot more features could be introduced

Still no news in the Netherlands, not even a pre-sale.

I was planning on switching from verizon to AT&T tomorrow and buying the IPhone, however your post has just taught me that maybe I should wait until Saturday

We may just be lucky that we missed the presale. Pressure is building on Apple to do a recall. The situation much reminds me of the time shortly after the vb 4 release.

The iPhone 4's biggest problem is not its antenna

They had their little public meeting today and it was a joke. Jobs even had the gall to say that all smartphones have the antenna problem, even the Blackberry Bold 9700 (which I have). One of the guys said he couldn't get his Bold 9700 to drop the bars while they were there and Jobs told him "It doesn't happen in all areas." They have decided to give away free cases, until September 30th, to fix the problem. Glad I didn't get in on the iphone.

The iPhone 4 is a BMW among Fords... the antenna issue, while real, is over-hyped. I get a signal even with the death grip in places my 3GS didn't. 4.01 didn't "fix" the issue but it made things more real, and consumers will be less apt to freak out if they don't see multiple bars dropping when in reality they should have only had one or two bars in the first place.

Its the best phone out there. I was hoping to get an Android this time around but IMHO they are still a year or two away. If someone that isn't a Korean company comes out with a model that has some style and their apps mature I may switch just cuz I'm a tech nerd and I like to play with new things.

Long story short DO NOT let people's hype about the antenna pull you away from looking at the new iPhone. Do what most intelligent consumers do and judge it for yourselves, not what a bunch of rabid anti-Apple people tell you. This is coming from a fairly big Microsoft bigot who is disappointed in a company who really got it wrong. (I make my living off Microsoft, not Apple...)

I still love my iPad more than life itself though.

P.S. people wanted Jobs to grovel on the floor and beg for forgiveness at the media event yesterday. People are idiots.

P.P.S. my grandma read consumer reports once upon a time. Then I showed her how to use Google.

It went on pre-order yesterday, but t-mobile is a POS company. So it's a guess if they received the order, if they can handle the amount of people ordering it, etc.

It went completely wrong in the morning, and without logging in, at the end of the day, everybody could just pre-order it pretending to be a customer.

So we will see..

I still have the 1st generation iPhone, and it's pretty banged up (crack in screen, battery needs to be replaced)...so I do need a new phone in the coming week, with all the negative press about the antenna my friends all think I am crazy for wanting to get the iPhone 4..

but it is really a great phone, and I live in a metropolitan area so I am not worried about service really, its never been a problem.
