I never early adopt OS upgrades. I'll wait 6-12 months .

Yup. Me, too. Apparently Photoshop CS2 won't run under Leopard, to boot.

Gotta be rich to play this game when major system upgrades come along.

No worries Norman. To tell you the truth the iPhone IS slicker than s#it, and I will say after the couple of months that I have had it, it still looks almost band new. These things are tuff, might just be the tuffest phone I have ever had and I'm very hard on electronic devices ( are you listening Chad ;) ) I've found out the screen is a crystal much like a rolex watch so it does not scratch. As a matter of fact I've taken to rubbing the screen on my jeans to remove smudges. The only place its a little vulnerable to scratches is the back. Since I'm prone to laying in face up on my desk or table, there are some minor scratches on the backside. Actually It would probably be safer to place it screen side down.

Anyway there are a few things I'm not too happy with. ATT service is still far less superior to the Verizon service I had with my Treo. Additionally Apple has been very slow with upgrades. The only upgrades they did were to close hacking holes and give me a way to BUY music via iTunes through my phone YIPPY :rolleyes: I'm still waiting for a way to C&P which to me is sooooo ridiculous not to include in the original OS. But on a bright note, I had to pull some info off of my old Treo and when I fired that brick up and had to relearn the OS I was like this is like using a caveman's rock to make a phone call. :rolleyes: and I was remembering at the time how advanced and cool I thought it was originally. :D
