    how it works: it works like any other cell phone, except its touch screen and has the best designed interface on the market today, think imac that is a phone.

    is it worth the money: i think anyone on this board will tell you that it is worth the money, we are a little bias, but.. if you want the best cellphone on the market today, you need to pay for it, and honestly ive paid MUCH more for cellphones that havent been as dominating in the market as this one.

    apps: yes, i wouldnt say a LOT, because most you wont use, but there are new apps being created weekly, so theres always something new.

    fun/good games: there arent a lot of games out yet, mainly productivity and network type apps. there are a handful though. not VALUE or EA type games, but I can forsee the games coming.

    what can you do with it: everything it says on their webpage and more, if you include the apps that people have built for it. IM/IRC/TERMINAL/APACHE etc. and again, new stuff are being developed every day.

    is it really that good: see above.

    My personal opinion is to pass on the iPhone if you plan on installing lots of third-party apps and things not listed currently on the iPhone package.

    The reason is Apple is treating their customers who wish to do this with disdain and downright stupid policies.

    Don't get me wrong. I really like my iPhone, but I'm sick of the way Apple has been treating some of their longtime supporters. "Think Different" indeed.

    We have a board that you can request themes. Summerboard is a program that if you use the guide in my sig, it will give you an app called installer app on your iphone, with installer app it basically allows you to install almost any developed app for the iphone, this would include summerboard. All of this can be done without touching your computer

    Im not on AIM much, but the boards are a great place to get answers, Iam not by far a guru compared to other moderators as well as some members. I think the community would be a much faster and better source for answering questions. If you do see me on though, feel free to send me a msg.

    the board:

    you can also look at the download section for more of our themes made by the great MMi community
