Exactly!

I'll be back in line at the Apple store tomorrow. I will be sure to report back here G to let you know if I got one!!

Why would you come into a thread that is about getting the newest apps for the iPhone just to say you don't care about it???

This thread is about getting new apps for your iPhone. If you don't care about "the newest fad" then either keep it to yourself or start your own thread about not liking fads. That is not what this thread is about and I would appreciate it if you stayed on topic. Thanks.

I got it!!! I got it!!!! After a 3 hour wait today I finally got my beloved 16g black iphone! She is so beautiful! I've spent the last few hours playing with her, trying to figure everything out. It's always so weird getting a new phone and having to learn new features. I've gotten a few free apps so far and got most of my contacts done. Now she needs a case!!!

Weather Bug is cool. My friend had me download a few of his favs, like google mobile app (he works for google too!) So many cool applications to get!!!

Can you get male ones too, or are they all female?

I learned my lesson the hard way ... I bought an original iPod and had nothing but trouble with it (I was just cussing and swearing at it again last night!!) . I'll never ever jump onto the Apple bandwagon again.

Love the features. Hate the huge, gaping holes in functionality and portability and "intuitive" user ability. I'm happily sticking with my Blackberry...

Wow you are the first person I have ever heard say something like that. Most people praise Apple for the intuitive user interfaces of just about all of their products. That is actually what they are known for. I am sorry you had such a negative experience.

Just got babk from swapping an iPhone for a Blackberry - The user loved the iPhone, could not make reliable calls on AT&T in NYC. Same reason I left AT&T.

Dosen't really like the Blackberry, just has to be able to make calls. Praised the iPhone for readability and interface.
