    Maybe I don't need an iPhone. Let's face it as a phone the iPhone sucks. We've said that from the start. Piss poor volume, can't even be heard on speaker phone. Same little speaker doesn't do well for music either. ATT doesn't cover 3G well so service is MEH.........

    Now that Apple has expanded to the iPad it makes much more sense to have a phone I WANT that does things well as a phone, then use the iPad for traveling internet, games, apps, etc. The only reason we ever liked the iPhone is cause it does all that on the go, but makes us compromise on a phone. With the iPad out now, I see no reason not to get an iPad and chunk the iPhone for a REAL PHONE that works well.

    That's why I skipped the i4 and another contract this time around. I believe the 99 cent phones they give away with service "talk" better with better speaker phone than the iPhone does. It's been said from the beginning too. It's no secret the iPhone sucks as a PHONE. No ergonomics, no speaker phone worth a daum, does not hold up to the environment a cell phone is usually in. (hence a million broken phones on ebay).

    I'm going to get the iPad for Xmas from my mother so starting today, I look for the perfect "phone" that does nothing but be a Phone as well as possible. No fritterly little thin flip phone with a cute 3 inch screen. I want a PHONE.

    Suggestions will be googled. Throw a few out.

    I have the phone I was using before the iPhone came out. A flip phone with rubber surround, made for high impact construction work and a speaker phone louder than HELL. Good ergonomics. It works on Sprint network, not ATT

    If you looking for a good solid phone the rugby is a good Att phone. If you want something strong and using just for a phone. If you are going to be texting alot there are a few better options.

    I don't text my 200 text per month, barely 80 if that.

    I don't use my 450 minutes per month, I have 2,580 rollover minutes.

    I need a PHONE.

    It's identical to the phone I had before the iPhone came out, which was samsung as well just 4 years earlier model and on sprint. Loud speaker, can be beaten on and take a hit.... It's a candidate.

    This is a bit, well, on topic, but can anyone explain why my ipod's battery drains ridiculously fast? On a 2g, 4.0 jailbroken with wallpaper/multitasking enabled. I used the first method that used the final beta to jailbreak the release
