IPhone love hate

On June 19 I like many other fickle impusle buyers ran to their local AT&T store and purchased an iPhone. I had been eyeing one since it's inital release In 2007 but I was still infatuated with my blackberry so I stayed with the good people at research in motion. However with all the app comercials and viability I couldn't fight the urge any longer.

This phone is a beast of a device. The screen, response time and user friendly interface is amazing. However I was really disappointed in the lack of features on the so caled king of smart phones.

1.NO MMS seriously how can a phone with as many features as thing not have mms

2. Battery life the battery on the 3gs is horrible my blackberry would sometime hold up for a whole 16 hrs. However the iPhone if being used cannot withstand more than a good 6-7 hrs without needing a charge if using 3g and push notification hopefully with the update coming later this summer a strong battery will be enact

3. Service I know this isn't an apple problem more of AT&T however leaving verizon to come to AT&T was a big down grade and I'm very displeased with how weak the network is and I live in a major
city like new York so imagine if I was in chatanoga Tennessee

However for all these faults I'm Hanging in there because this is a special device and un matched on the smartphone market right now I only wish the storm was able to do what the iPhone is capable of doing and I wouldve kept my service who am I kidding I'm slowing become an apple fan boy
