You knew it was coming. I wanted to beat Ireland to the punch. Needless to say, don't vote unless you actually have an iPhone.

Please only vote after your phone has been successfully activated.

wait, can you add another option? "I love it, but it has some flaws"

I said "Like It" because everything is perfect, it just that the entire time I was reading online about the iPhone, I got the impression that it was going to be way bigger. I'm happy that it is smaller, so it can fit in my pocket, but mostly dissappointed that it is tinier then expected.

I was thinking the same thing. I would have also added options for; "I don't have one yet", and "I'm not getting one". Amateurs!

Totally 100% in agreement... everyone looks at this device as a phone. I want to look at this device as a pocket computer... with abilities to make phone calls. I think a real hit would be 1.5-2x bigger screen real-estate.

I hate to break it to you, but it is a phone. The idea you can fit it into your pocket is a selling point. Just hold out for the 10" Mac Tablet with Multi-touch, that's what you really want.

I tried to keep the poll simple as I fell that is better. My main interest is seeing how many iPhone users are dissatisfied after they get it activated and actually use it. The users who are in activation hell are quite upset, understandably so, but I've not seen many who have it activated and have used it say anything but glowing praise.

I wonder what the poll will say about satisfaction.
post #10 of 31
I bought one yesterday and had no activation issues. Safari has seemingly crashed on me a few times here and at other vB forum websites. I say seemingly because all of a sudden the main screen zooms in.

Anyway, that's not what truly bugs me. The following bug me:

No content management once content has synched to the iPhone. You can't add/edit/delete playlists, songs, pictures, etc. I did some 'quick and dirty' synching thinking I would be able to organize / delete as I wanted. Hopefully more functionality will come in an update.

No drag/drop editing of weather city listings. The order you enter the cities into the Weather widget is the way they stay for all time. I'd like to change the order so my city is first, but I'd have to delete / reenter everything in a specific order. This should be easy to fix though.

No multiple portfolios on the stock widget. I'd like the stock widget to work like the weather widget. This way I could set up multiple portfolios (401k, stock club, personal, study) and flip through them like I flip through multiple weather forecasts.

The iPhone is definitely a cool device. I've probably used it 12 of the last 24 hours so I could test its functionality and get familiar with the software. For the most part I'm totally digging the iPhone.

Fixing the items I listed above would make it better for me. You may have a different wish-list.
post #11 of 31
I love it. Happy I purchased it, and besides a few flaws (no on-the-go management? safari controls a little wonky at times) it's mobile perfection.


EDIT: To the above poster - 12 times in a day? Man, I haven't been able to tear myself away from this thing (with exception to docking etc).

I played with one in the store one trivial thing that annoyed me was that if I held it flat and turned to landscape the screen wouldn't rotate over. I guess holding it flat it just doesn't know which way I'm holding it. Maybe I had to hold it upright and then hold it flat?

Flipping from portrait <--> landscape is pretty laggy sometimes. It's definitely not as instantaneous as shown in the Apple videos.

Soooo excited to finally have the new iPhone, my husband and I each got one for ourselves. As exisiting AT&T customers, one would have thought it would be simple and quick to activate the the iPhone. It was just that for my husband. Not so for me.

Fromt he same house, same computer, same AT&T account Unfortunately I have been waiting now 7 hours for my activation to go through (and might I add I am still on hold with AT&T for the third time today). My wait time on AT&T is "60 minutes or longer".

I've been checking out my husband's iPhone and it really is pretty cool. I like all the features, but the activation process is ridiculous. How is AT&T not more prepared? If I've been waiting for this iPhone to come out since late last year, then AT&T has certainly had enough time to prepare their systems for the influx of new orders. Even so, how is it such a problem to activate a phone for an existing account?

Like I said, the iPhone is very cool....the network services from AT&T are definitely subpar. Is anyone else experiencing this?
post #15 of 31
If anyone else is experieicing this problem, call 877.800.3701 and select option 3, then type in your order number. It worked within minutes! Make sure your iPhone is unplugged from the UPB and your iPhone is powered off. Good luck!
post #16 of 31
If anybody chooses "Hate it, want to send it back", DON'T. Send it directly to me. I will gladly take it off your hands.



At your expense, of course.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

That's funny. I finally had a chance to mess around with one yesterday, and I thought it was quite a bit bigger than I'd expected.

Perhaps I'm so used to my Nano...

Yes, you would need to hold it upright. It cannot determine it's orientation if it is flat on a table.

A couple pet peeves of mine are that the iPhone doesn't have

1. iChat or similar.
2. Video recording
3. The weather icon only displays "73deg" rather than current temperature.
4. Can't zoom on the camera
5. Flash on the camera
6. I think it should have atleast 20GB
7. When talking on the phone I can barely hear the other person, its simply not loud enough during a call.

I'm sure plenty of you feel the same.

Current temperature of which city? I have 8 right now. (I'm going to Europe soon)

This may be a stupid question, but did you turn up the volume? My concern is that on the handset sounds muffled.

Couldn't agree more. I can hardly hear the person on the other end when I hold the phone to my ear. With earbuds it is much easier to hear a call.

The other thing that annoys me is that the ringer is MUCH too quiet. I've missed several calls because I never heard the ring. I use what I think is the loudest ringer (old telephone) and I still miss calls.

Anyone else have this problem?

iChat would be an welcome addition--there are a number of lesser phones with AIM, messenger, etc.

What do you think of the sms/text message application? I think it's is wonderful, but I hope they add a few functions. I miss the ability to send a single text message to multiple recipients. A 'quicknotes' option would also be welcome. My last cellphone (RAZR) had a horrible text system, but I loved those two features. ALSO, it would be great if you could rotate for a wider keyboard as you can in Safari or iPod/video.

Where are the games? No solitaire?

...as for hardware, I found that my FM radio transmitter does not work with the iPhone. Would be good if future version of phone (or iPod) had FM ability. GPS functionality would be great too.

I agree with you regarding the camera zoom and video features.
post #23 of 31
I love it, some flaws.

Actually, the only thing I REALLY miss is Flash support in Safari (my company site uses it.) and file transfer (specifically for .pdf files in MY case) ... I'm hoping that functionality might show up with Leopard, but it obviously wasn't a show-stopper for me

I want current temp of Fort Myers, FL. But, nonetheless it only displays the icon with "73deg" on it.

I've missed several myself. I think the "alarm" sound is the loudest, but I still have it on the default ringer that it came on, I like that.

That was a rhetorical question. My point is that you could have several cities in your weather widget and how would the phone know which one to show? Also, if you have no service or connection, it won't have the data to know what to display.

But I can see how this is confusing since the Calendar app shows the current day.

Have you guys turned up the volume using the rocker switch on the side?? This is a separate volume for the handset/ringer. I can hear the person with the phone a foot from ear and the alarm easily across a room.

Yep.....I've used the rocker switch on the side and still the ringer as well as the voice on the other end is insufficiently loud. Maybe I might have a defective unit.

I tried that as well.

You know what else I think the iPhone needs is some sort of cap to go over the headphone jack because putting it in your pocket collects all sorts of lint and dust inside of the jack.

EXACTLY!

And I do have service and has been working beautifully! I have not lost a single bar. I guess if the calendar is set up for current date then the weather should be able to as well, right? And you could always have a setting in there and have the "default" or "prefered" city's temp shown on the icon.

That's too bad because I have to turn in down.
