Tool that restricts you in one or multiple ways, but since said tool is considered the norm, you have to use it anyway since no other tool can outperform it.
Joe:

"Whats the iPhone to you?"

Charly:

"The iPhone is like that belt that looks good, but the belt feels tight. I wear it knowing that it feels tight and i don't want to get another belt to replace it and it must look good because its supposed to.

Joe:

"That's exactly how I feel"

Shit
Random guy: Hey I got my new iphone
Me: Oh you mean the phone that is just now adding features that every other phone had like 5 years ago? What a piece of shit!

Mainly a cell-phone and an ipod, it has many other uses. It works fine as a phone, but works even better as a toy.

Apples brilliant marketing plan has now brainwashed America. i attribute this to the fact that every time i talk to people about iphones i hear this, "oh i want an iphone so bad.."

While it's function as a phone works well, the iphone offers nothing you cant do on your computer or a basic ipod.

While the actual hardware is relatively cheap, the monthly fee is quite expensive to middle class America.

So, before you buy an iphone, ask yourself: "can i buy a regular cellphone and save large amounts of cash?"

and for the daring ask yourself:
"am i falling prey to our consumer society, will i truly be happy with an iphone?"
Student 1: "yea i just traded my iphone for a basic razor."

Student 2: "why the hell would you do that? the iphones are soo awesome, man you shouldve given it to me!

Student 1: "well as long as i can call people, because thats what a phone is for, then im happy."

A fancy looking brick.
I bought a $600 paperweight today. Some people like to call it an iPhone.

the only phone with the innate aility to become a smudgy piece of shit after 6 minutes of use. sending texts is fun, randomly jabbing at the screen and hoping you hit the button you want. there is this technology called buttons, invented along time ago see. believe it or not, they actually let you feel what you are pressing. every other phone has them. so what, it has a web browser? so does every other phone. get with the program, people. don't hop on the ipod band wagon.
Me: what did you do last night?
Friend: waited in line for 14 hours and got an iphone!
Me: oh, that would explain that shitty text you sent me that sad "i goh am iphimrw"
Friend: really, it actually send it? i couldnt tell becouse i couldnt see the screen.

The iPhone is an internet-connected multimedia smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. Its minimal hardware interface lacks a physical keyboard, so a virtual keyboard is rendered on the multi-touch screen instead. The iPhone functions as a camera phone (including text messaging and visual voicemail), a portable media player (equivalent to an iPod), and an Internet client (with email, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity). The first-generation phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second generation added UMTS with HSDPA.

Apple announced the iPhone on January 9, 2007, after months of rumors and speculation. The iPhone was introduced in the United States on June 29, 2007 before being marketed worldwide. Time magazine named it the "Invention of the Year" in 2007. Released July 11, 2008, the iPhone 3G supports faster 3G data speeds and assisted GPS. I think the iPhone is an alright phone but its not for me. It's virtual keyboard is not for heavy texter like me because you make constant typo's and the auto-spellcheck feature doesnt't help either. YouTube is slow and laggy. The internet (when not using WiFi) is exceptionally decent enough to check email or to browse websites when on the go. The iPod features are good even though I have experienced some annoying glitches with it but the updates fix it. The fact

that you can send MMS (Picture) text messages really sucks and the only way around it is to send the picture through the carriers email server to get it to the persons cellphone. (For example, if you want to send it to someone one thats using Verizon then you'd go to your pictures, Send it to an email and the email to send it to them would be

(phonenumber)@vzwpics.com).
The built in E-Mail app is great and I havent had any problems with it. The glitches and hardware errors that I have even after updating are annoying suck as the "No SIM card inserted" hardware glitch that happens even when there is a SIM inserted, then when it does that I can call out or send text messages so I would have to reboot the phone to fix it. Also it would randomly hang up (Not drop a call, do a full hang up as if I clicked "End Call") and go back to the home screen and/or black out. Also it has a software glitch where it says "No Service" or it would just show no bars even though im in the open. The only way to fix that is also to reboot and when it came back on I would then magically get 3-4 bars while im still standing in the same spot I was in before. Its a good phone but I wouldn't recommend it for buisiness people or heavy texters. But the thing that erks me the most about the iPhone is the VERY annoying fanboys that know that its features arent the best but still try to defend it. If you don't believe me then look at these comments that was on my YouTube vid. Copy & Paste this into your browser.

(Im not trying to spam or advertise, im just trying to prove a point.)

Here's a list of phones that would do better then the iPhone:

-BlackBerry Bold
-BlackBerry Curve 8900

-8925 AT&T Tilt (HTC TyTn II)
-T-Mobile Wing
-Cingular 8125 (HTC Wizard)
-Verizon XV6800
-Cingular 8525
-HTC Touch Pro

-HTC Touch Pro2
-eNVY2

Its better to order all of those phones unlocked so you can use them on any network that uses SIM.
I dont hate the iPhone, but its just not for me.
