    Unfortunately, there's no insurance offered for the iphones at the the moment. But I believe Apple Care is available for an additional fee to cover certain incidents.

        The iPhone is really cool! However just make sure AT&T works in your area. I know a lot of people in NJ do not get good service. Also do be careful with it AT&T does not cover much on it if anything happens. Some people at my office went to the latest Apple Event do you should really wait for the new one.

          I am in the same boat. Verizon works very well for us, but they don't have a new phone that either of us like.
          I need to get a new one, my Treo is so beat up.

          I am hesitant about ATT though... the guy in the cube next to mine gets no phone reception on the iPhone.

            I really like my iPhone. I've had it for almost a year now.
            My only complaint is you can send a picture by text, text multiple people or forward text messages. Basically my only issues are with the texting part.
            Other than that - I love it!!

              dh has it and loves it! he's hacked it so he didn't have to sign another 2 year contract, and he has awesome games and skins on it. i want to get it when the cheaper one comes out, but his current one doesn't support his work email, so he may get it if it's hackable, and pass his current one down to me. i always get his hand-me-downs.
              oh, and he got it in november. he's NEVER had a phone this long - always gets the newer, better one, but nothing newer and better has come out, plus he loves it THAT much!

                I have the iPhone. And I think you mean the third one is coming out b/c I have the second one. The 3G is the new one. Anyways I LOVE my iphone. I love having all my wedding pictures on it . And I can get directions anywhere. And check BDW . Hahah....if you watch the video for the new phone it's gonna be awesome. They're fixing the problems that people hate. I can't remember but maybe sending pictures in texts. I'm not sure. Anyways the new app store is AWESOME. Even us people with the old phone get the update. Thats also the cool thing. The phone gets new updates so it's like you get a new phone each time. I haven't had any major problems. Sometimes it will light up when I'm not touching it. But its not bad.

                The only thing is I have AT&T and we moved to the mountains. And they only have one cell provider out here and it's Verizon. Thats it! So in a few months AT&T will cut our service b/c we use another company's tower. Hopefully I can still use my phone for everything but calling people. You can use the iPhone on your wireless internet at home instead of through AT&T's network. As long as you don't plan on moving you should be gone. I've never had a problem dropping calls or bad reception. I LOVE LOVE HEART LOVE LOVE my iPhone!

                  if you have an iphone, download a game called chuzzle. it's so stupid, but it's addicting. you can also play online, if any of you are bored...like me....

                    I'm sooooo planning on getting the new one coming out this month... I currently have T-Mobile and I have no complaints just can't seem to find a phone that I like that they offer. A few of my friends have the old I-Phone and tell me that the new one's coming out have WAY more features and is much lighter and better not to mention less $$$$.

                    I'd say go for it!

                      ok girls, I have to call verizon and see if they will charge me the termination fee.....Yesterday when I called the guy said it might be possible to forgo the termination fee if we are in good account standing. Which we are.....so we'll see.

                      Verizon and At&t seem like they have the same plans right?
