iphone or voyager or blackberry?

Since Iphone is unlocked now, I'll probably get t-mobile for 1 year contract.

voyager doesn't take too many softwares and no flash but it's about $100 cheaper than iphone and blackberry... i like the look of it, I hate the navigation of it.

so what should I get?

If you want a PDA type phone ... the iPhone is a great product. But, functionality in a Windows environment isn't going to be seamless.

I can't stand the web browser on the BB and the Voyager's nav is horrible as you said. Between the 3, iPhone is the winner. Apples execution of the interface, style and functionality is nearly perfect.

iPhone!!!!

I absolutely love mine Smile
Its fast, I've played on other PDA style phones and they all seem to take too much damn time to load when ever you try to open something. It works excellent with WiFi and the edge network ain't bad - I use it often and I never get frustrated.

Just upgraded mine to the new v1.1.4 and jailbroke it - added a few applications.
This is what makes the phone great - need something? Just ad the feature with an application (or at least that what I like).

It's a great phone man.
The iPod, camera and photo browser kick ass.

I use mine a lot with customers, showing them sample images of work I've done.
It's saved my butt a few times with its google maps and the new 1.1.4 adds the "find my current location" on the map and you can just mapquest from it.

... and lastly - I LOVE THE TOUCH SCREEN.
Its super responsive (even with my screen protector on it!).

Haha, wow it sounds like I work for Mac.
I'm actually a hardcore PC abuser. I've never owned a Mac product, the iPhone being my first and its wow'ed me all the way. I've had it for 6months now and I've had no problems (its never even froze up on me!).

yeh, definitely the user friendliness and navigation as well as the big key point for me would be the large screen.

I have a question.

Do you have to have a mac to upload the v1.1.4? I read about unlocking it and they didn't say too much about it.

I mean, I've been meaning to get a mac sooner or later, but I think this might be the phone I might pull the trigger on.

I'm looking in ebay now...

I believe the iPhone updates the same as the iPod ... updates are offered simultaneously on the PC and MacOS side. Not, the Jailbreak software may be Mac or PC specific.

you can't use the updates, because the updates contain some virus that apple put into kill all 3rd party softwares.

I think I'm going to get the iphone. mine as well. So I could say I had one of the most overhyped phone in the universe... well next to razor, which I had and hated. Very Happy

anybody got a deal on iphone?

actually the iPhone is very durable.
I've dropped and kicked mine around a few times - my phones generally only last 6months (max) with the granite dust and abuse and welp, the iPhone still looks new.

You can use ZiPhone or iLiberty to unlock & jailbreak your phone.
Both work the same basically - click a button and wait, done Smile

I used ZiPhone to Jailbreak mine.
I don't need to unlock, since I'm with AT&T.
I only used ZiPhone because I didn't know of iLiberty at the time, but I downloaded it and its basically identical to ZiPhone.

I'm busy uploading the installer files to both ZiPhone and iLiberty to our website so you can download them easily.

Oh and jailbreaking means to add an "installer" application to the phone which you use to install third party applications.

Check out modmyifone.com (its for tons of info)
or just do a quick search on google, there's a sh*tload of info on the iPhones online.

BB sucks balls. it's horrible at navigating, it's got a tiny ass screen, and it's got a stupid tiny keyboards with stupid functions, just like yo face. BURN! LOL

I've decided not to get the iphone. I went and played around a bit today and it's cool with the touchscreen and all, but I couldn't stand the message virtual keyboard. My fingers are too chunky, and I was hitting the wrong buttons. That's going to make me go insane.

anyway, I've found another phone.

To be continued...
