I really don't understand this fascination with removable batteries. The mechanisms implemented to make the batteries removable take up a lot of valuable space. Space that could be used for more battery. Will someone please explain why it's so important to be able to remove your battery? In case you drop it in water? Just turn it off and stick it in a bag of rice. I've known two people who sent their iPhone through the washing machine and both iPhones worked just fine after they had time to dry out. Replacing the battery? Most people upgrade before that even becomes necessary, but even so I've replaced iPhone batteries. It's really not that difficult. Just tedious. Maybe to keep the government from tracking you? I'm pretty sure I'm not that interesting to the government, but if I really needed to hide I could just leave my phone at home.

Erm, 4G speeds won't be out till about next year. Forgot where I read that and as for current 4G speeds they are only about a certain percentage of the actually speeds."I want to change the world but they won't give me the source code"

And I agree with captain chaos, I really dont like to have to be near an outlet all day long. Yes there are the "juice packs" but id rather have a spare battery.

I understand the need for recharging the iPhone every day, but it is the extremely rare occasion that I am not near an outlet, computer, or car where I can recharge my iPhone. If I'm going to be away from an outlet, I just bring my USB cable. Remembering the cable is no more problem than remembering an extra battery and I don't have to deal with charging 2 (or more) batteries.
