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."

Apple's newest attempt to take over the world with their crappy products. This time, however, they are focusing on the telecommunications industry. They dumbed down the world with the Mac, the oh-so-wonderful iPods, and now they've unleashed the iPhone, otherwise known as a PDA with phone capabilities.

It's $600 and it will be the worst $600 you will ever spend if you choose to get one. Even worse than the PS3, and that's saying something.
Person A: "Hey, did you see the new iPhone?! I used up most of my life savings to buy one, but it's so worth it! Check it out!"

Person B: "...so, you basically bought the $600 mutant offspring of a PDA and a cell phone?"

Person A: "No no, it's more than that! It can play music and surf the Internet and it has a revolutionary touch interface!"

Person B: "Oh right, let me rephrase: it's the $600 mutant offspring of a shitty iPod, a shitty Mac running a shitty new version of Safari, and the touch interface of a PDA. Right, sorry."

Pretty much the stupidest portable gadget ever made. It has only one button and everything else is operated by the touch screen. It's an way of identifying retards. It can also be a tissue.
John: Yo, Mike, we're going to a nightclub to get some action. You bring the condoms?

Mike: No, I have my iPhone

John: Piss off.

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.

Do not take the other definitions for this seriously. This piece of equipment definetelt does NOT harness the power of a laptop, nor is it the coolest thing ever invented (just read the specs, boys and girls.) For the ammount of hype surrounding it, it seems to lack ALOT of the features we take for granted in todays mobile phones. eg. video recording, MP3 ringtones, instant messaging, only to name a few. The features available on an iphone have actually been available on portable devices at much more reasonable prices for years, yet all it takes is apple to create an iperbole around it, then suddenly everyone thinks it's the only device that harnesses these features.
This is exactly what happened when the ipod was released - all it takes is a ridiculously funded advertising scheme to make people think that ipods are the best choice for a portable media player - when in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. apple products are merely fasion accessories. be sure to wikipedia "iphone"

the biggest peice of shit ever made. Its horrible touch screen mixed with way to many horrible features such as you tube and "Internet" provides a new way for twelve year old girls to text as if on a computer and look up Porn without their parents catching them. Might be the worst gift a parent could give to their child. And not to mention that it goes for 600 dollars
Douche/twelve year old girl- man the iphone frickin pwns newbs man! Ur samsung is affordable, reliable and has a battery life longer than ten minets but its still shitty cuz u can't go on myspace in class or text like aim! And I'm gangsta cuz my parents get my spoiled ass useless and expensive shit like this.

Person who is not a mindless conformist bastard- wow! I hate u now! U think taking scantily clad egg sized tits and putting them straight onto ur myspace is fun dont you? I thought so.

Douche/twelve year old girl- your totaly right I should get my head out of my ass and grow up thank you!
