I did get an iPhone. I have my new phone and my new mp3 player. I still need to find a way to play oog files though. I also bought a Franklin-Webster Collegiate electronic dictionary. Electronic dictionary also for school. I can take out an electronic dictionary in school easier than an iPhone.

Speaking as a person who last used a Samsung Blackjack which is a windows mobile phone.

Good things about the iPhone:

1. no annoying unlock mechanism (3 buttons I think it was on the Blackjack)

2. can see the screen and read it in direct sunlight

3. phone is not too heavy, still fits in my pocket, smoother, thinner touch

4. iPhone apps – not available for other phones

5. more options, websites with iPhone specific sites

6. wallpapers are nicer/better since I can now have Digital Blasphemy wallpapers (it is worth it to buy access to his site/work)

7. camera seems to be nice, you can even make a screenshot of your phone… even when it’s locked

8. came partly charged. appears to charge quickly

Bad things about the iPhone:

1. sound customization is stupid

2. don’t like iTunes. It’s not intuitive. Do not like iTunes.

3. Going to need to buy more cables – Blackjack came with USB connector and power charger. not USB connector and power adapter for USB connector. I’m going to need a second cord.

4. There seems to be some interesting politics between AT&T and Apple. If you call AT&T about wanting something regarding the iPhone when you can’t get your iPhone in the Apple store that day then AT&T people are likely to badmouth Apple as a company in general.

Other things:

1. Spend more money on accessories, but more accessories available.

2. So far music organization is craptastic, I probably need to do more with it.

3. no personal experience with battery life yet.

4. bought my first app… books… classic literature.

5. now have a Pandora account.

6. earbuds are uncomfortable but I’ll deal to be able to have hands free phone calls.
