I bought the new iphone4 a couple of weeks ago and I have no problems with it. I had the 3g and there is really very little separating the two phones. I am a bit surprised how little difference there is actually.

Apple fans are brainless sheep.

For people to fork over all that money for emotional reasons is ludicrous. People need to be smarter then this and Apple needs to provide a quality product. This consumer is not biting yet.

Apple is popular at the moment... what happens when an item is popular? Regardless if it works or not, people will buy to stay current with fashion.

I do enjoy the Ipod Nano, I believe it's and incredible item for being slim and feather like, I can take it to my work outs.

I never got Apple crazy, but like i was saying regardless of its problems.. people will buy just to be like "everyone else." They will remain silent and hope that the problem clears up... lets hope it isn't another Toyota in the making for success going down the hill all over.

I just upgraded to the iPhone4 from the first generation Edge phone! The reception is so much better than my old phone. I can now make calls in my home (couldn't before!). I bought it for the new antenna design. It does work better than the old phones and I am a happy customer. No, I don't hold it in the "death grip". The screen is stunning and the new photo features are handy. All in all, a great upgrade. Now if it was only on Verizon........
