I have the 3G and it's been the best phone I've ever owned. Played with a 3GS and it's basically an improved version of the best phone I've ever owned

Can't wait to see what they come out with next. Just wish it wasn't limited to AT&T.

Love the phone, hate the coverage. Where I live the phone coverage is poor. I don’t give a hoot about the 3G war between Verizon and AT&T, but when I can’t make a phone call from any place in the north side of Santa Fe I’m pissed.

Then there’s the fact that AT&T doesn’t allow for tethering of your computer to the iPhone when Apple specifically states that you can do so, it makes me mad. I wish I never left Verizon.

The phone is great though.

Steve Jobs has been rich since waaay before apps were popular and he'll most likely be even richer by the time I'm done with this post. And when you steal a paid app, by no means are you stealing from Steve you're stealing from someone or some group that worked hard to give you that fart app or that diet app. So if that's you're mindset maybe you're one of the dbags that steals other peoples hard earned stuff...

I had the 3G and updated to the 3GS when it came out. Best phone ive ever had hands down and I have my phone jailbroken. There is a 3rd party app where tethering is possible. I just got it last week.

I second that, just don't drop it and shatter the glass. I did and I love the phone so much I didn't hesitate to pay the apple store $200 to fix the glass which only took 15 minutes.

Still thinking of jailbreakin, mostly for tethering my laptop to it. if you guys have first hand experience let me know pls.

I think coverage is all relative..overall Verizon might have better coverage in the US but for my day to day purposes AT&T covers me perfectly. But as predicted it looks like there will be an iPhone for Verizon sometime this summer.

Jailbrake = Bypassing the iPhone OS to run apps/sequences that the iPhone OS prohibits (tethering, multitasking, personalization of background and message tones)

Tether = Use your cell phone's connection to 3G to enable the use of the internet on your computer.


A Jailbroken 3GS is hands down the best phone on the market. Not jailbroken, you can probably find a Droid phone that'll do the same stuff...
