Ok, I can't resist, so I'm going to comment....
1. Newsflash nukkaz: The iPhone can do MMS and/or thethering by either unlocking it, going to a website or simply hacking it. If you're afraid of all of those, then shut your cakehole and send pictures via email as attachments.
2. For all of you who are on Verizon, please quit complaining. Verizon had the opportunity to get the iPhone before AT&T and they told Apple to suck a d1ck. Why? because they're Verizon. So now that AT&T is getting momentum from a customer subscription perspective, most Verizon customers are beggining to realize that there's in fact something wrong and they are under a cocoon technologically because they can't use any phone they want.
I recently got an iPhone as a birthday gift from my wife and I'm pleased as punch with the device. It can so so much and it is miles away from any windows mobile phone out there and the blackberry storm.
After seeing how much my wife liked the interface of the phone, I decided to buy her one for mother's day and she loves it. Her initial reaction when comparing it to the blackberry pearl she used to own was one of joy. She's the least technical savvy person and she can't put the phone down because it is so user friendly.
I just updated my firmware to OS 3.0 and the phone is super responsive and quicker than before.
So, now I guess some people are going to argue that the camera on the 3G (which is what I have) is only 2mp's and you can't record video. Again, my response is that if you really need to take that many pictures and shoot video, then unlock it. Personally, I have an SLR at home and when I want to take a nice picture, that's what I grab.
