iPhone without the phone

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I would love to get an iPhone, but AT&T coverage sucks or is non-existent in my area. I've been thinking about just getting an iPod Touch instead until AT&T coverage is better. The thing is I really want to have full calendar and notes functionality, along with email and a camera. Basically I want everything but the phone. Would everything but phone features be functional on an iPhone without signing up for AT&T?
Should I just lump it and get the iPod Touch and hope they start adding features later on?

Thanks

Well the SDK will be out next year so I'd expect a whole bunch of new software for both the Touch and the iPhone by next spring or summer. You might have to bide your time.

Yeah, well that still won't add a camera.

Sorry to say the iPhone is locked down hard without a contract with AT&T... I live in an area where my ols phone sucked and I have to say the iPhone makes it like they put a tower in my back yard. The cellular radio component seem to kick ass over the 8125 I previously had with AT&T... I would bite the bullett and get what you want and spend you money once instead of twice after all the iPhone and the iPod touch are the about same price.

I wish I had this option as well, i would rather have the iPhone instead of the Touch because it lacks certain qualities the phone has. Oh well, the waiting game is the best.

I bought my ipod touch and I love it, but also right after I opened it and started playing with it I really considered buying an iphone as well, just because I want the phone version. it seems really unreasonable, but I'm trying to validate it somehow.. as soon as I get past reasoning to have to ipods of this quality I will buy it for sure

and a bag of money falls in my hands
