Need to get a new phone this week.......I-Phone or Storm? I would really love to the Google phone but it's only offered by T-Mobile and the coverage area sux!

So let's hear who likes what and why? User friendly or pain in the ass?

LOVE The I phone, it fell in the lake but I like it so much I got another one the 3G. It is faster, don't know about the Storm, but Mr EZ has the Blackberry and now has the I phone also. He likes it better than the Blackberry.

The wife has the new LG. It works like an I phone, plus it flips open for a keyboard. She loves it. And it's Verizon.

I've had my iPhone for a couple of weeks, typing this with it. It's a great phone that allows you download pretty much any application you can think of. I've yet to drop a call on it so I would say that the coverage is good. For me the drawbacks are that you can't send a pic or video through a text conversation only email. It has a great web brouser and having a built in iPod is priceless.

The iPhone rocks! I'm on it now, doing my morning reading.
Cons:
No mms, but sending thru email isn't much harder
No cut and paste, but it's a phone, not computer
Battery life, get used to charging it and using constantly

Pros:
No buttons to wear out
iPod
Apps f'ing galore
Always updates itself thru iTunes
Sturdy little thing. I've dropped it from 15 feet onto asphalt= small dent
Another incident produced a small crack in the screen= no issues at all
Downloadable shows and movies and porn
Stream porn and YouTube
And you can call people :D

I don't care for AT&T coverage at my house, but have always had decent service at Parker. Sprint had no service there. Can't say for Havasu, as I don't go there.

BTW, Jeff loves the BB Bold, but hasn't ever tried the Iphone. Personally, I don't like the touch screen, but I like the larger screen for internet. Depends on your priorities.

X2.

I wish they would add MMS but otherwise its perfect for what I do.

Ive only had a couple dropped calls in the couple yrs of having it, been very happy with that fact. Came from Nexthell aka Sprint and that was dropped call city where I live. They focking suck. Swapped 20+ cell phones to AT&T and couldn't be happier.

There is no comparison. Apples & Oranges. I am not talking about coverage. Pull up both of their websites and look at their features, so you can make and informed decision and not just follow the herd.

storm sucks...i have what you call a phone problem...so that makes me a expert...:)

IM on a phone all day long...my profession has to make me available 24/7...

iphone3G is the best phone for the "fun factor"

storm is RIMs biggest mistake.They tried hard to follow apple with touch screen but it doesn't work well...very slow and the apps are not that great.
The whole keyboard thing and click is horrible...almost like the phone is broken when you type...I guarantee they will come out with something better in a couple of months.

I talked to my phone rep who handles my "problem" and he said the storm has been a total flop for verizon....# 1 returned phone they have to date.

I definitely agree with above:

Iphone: fun factor
Storm: Bad blackberry
Another blackberry: Work factor.

I have all three of them here at work, and am the "phone technician" because I run the desktop support. Stay away from the storm until they fix it, (probably won't happen anytime soon). If this for work, get a blackberry, most IT departments (not all) will not support the Iphone for data push/pull yet, and for good reason, it's just not secure enough yet. If it's mostly for fun, and you don't need to hook it up to something like a blackberry Enterprise server, get the Iphone, I have absoloutely loved both of mine (first one is at the bottom of Lake Nacimiento).

Wish it was the phone. But the girlfriend has one also and drops the same amount. It seems like if your not in the 3G network your screwed.
A little trick I learned with the new 3G is to turn off the 3G when you are out of 3G network. Sometimes you might be close to the 3G network, and it will auto switch whether you are in calls or not, the Iphone wants the fastest service it can get its grubby yet sexy little hands on. If you are dropping calls at home, switch it when you get home, and you shouldn't have to worry about dropped calls anymore.

I have the iphone 3G. Love it. It's fantastic for the web, the apps are great, the games are perfect for waiting in line at resturants, getting your hair cut etc, the ipod and Pandora radio gets me through long workdays and sometimes I even call people on it. Picks up wifi networks for faster speeds when it's availible too.
