    Re: iPhone 4

    Ok, maybe you can explain this to me alittle.

    Why would you buy a 4G phone when you live in an area that doesn't even have 3G coverage?


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    iPhone 4 is not 4G.

    It's simply called iPhone '4' because it's the 4th generation iPhone.

    I use 3G all the time, just not at home. I have wifi at home.

    I thought it was supposed to be 4G. Well, so how much I follow/care about Apple, I would care more if I had a better internet connection.

    Yeah, Apple is the king of iterative product development.

    "We have the technology to give you 20 great features in this phone! But for the first iteration, we'll only give you 4. We'll still charge you full price though!"

    1.5 years later..

    "We are now giving you our new product that has 8 of those 20 great features we could've given in the first iteration, but didn't! And we'll charge you full price again. Maybe more!"

    So yeah. Apple is lucky that they actually make a good product, and can pull that crap off. GREAT money-making business moves, but can really **** you off.

    Re: iPhone 4

    I bought the HTC Evo and love it. Battery life is pretty bad but with the upgraded battery(3500mah from my old htc, just waiting for the new back plate from seidio.) I now have zero complaints about the phone.

    Unfortunately for them, android has caught up, and the Evo4g, which has better specs, and is more open, released a week before the iphone 4. At the rate android is improving, iphone 5 will have to be a major improvement or it wont even be close.

    Re: iPhone 4

    I don't know why anyone would get a phone that can't get 3G in Ankeny (AT&T), when I can get 3G from Verizon on my farm in Crawford County. Keep in mind, Crawford Co. is an hour and a half from any city (Omaha, DM, & Sioux City)

    3g Verizon is not equal to 3G AT&T in terms of speed. Plus I have Edge it's just slower. But I use wifi where I am so really not a big deal.

    I love the marketing coming out in fanboys in both Apple and Android. Android people see their phones and think "open". Apple people see their phones and think style. People are subjects of great marketing campaigns.

    I buy iPhones over the android phones simply because it works better for me and I feel has a nicer platform. You may agree or disagree but it's a matter of opinion because the tech and software is pretty much the same now days.
