    I like mine a lot.

    Dislikes:
    SMS is a bit crap (not being able to forward / edit received messages or being able to send to more than one recipient at a time)

    MMS not natively supported but works via a simple work around.

    Camera functionality a bit lacking (no zoom or video capture) but good picture quality


    Likes:
    Unlimited GPRS and EDGE data transfer
    Unlimited Cloud WiFi
    Ability to view normal website (not WAP)
    Integration with RNS-e/Audi Bluetooth
    Visual Voicemail
    Release of SDK in February should fix a lot of the little limitation at the moment and should hopefully see the release of some more great applications that will run on the iPhones OSX operating system.

    Overall I'd say it's very good. The lack of 3G is not a problem for me as the EDGE technology is almost as fast in real world useage but without the ridiculous battery consumption of 3G.

    I guess the short answer for me is that I use all kinds of stuff depending on where I am, but it's all Microshaft stuff on the whole.

    Long answer would be:

    PC with XP Media Centre Edition and PC with Vista Ultimate - I hasten to add that I don't really use Vista for anything apart from Media Centre, because for me it's the only useful thing that's marginally better than XP (I've not played any DX10 games here yet!) - and I managed to get an NFR copy

    I've got an old laptop running XP Pro that I use sometimes when out and about and I use an XP Pro desktop to visit from work occasionally; but usually when I'm not at home/on my laptop I use PDAs to surf. I've got two T-Mobile MDA Vario IIs (long story), one with Windows Mobile 5 and I flashed the other to WM6.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    But arn't you tied in to a contract now? Or can you just move back to a non iPhone contract?

    Don't forget that apple intent to release the SDK (software developer kit) in early February and there is a very strong chance that someone will come along and be creative and sort out the smallish problems.

    Can't the administrator of the site take a look at the website statistics and tell us for sure what percentage are using which operating system, browser, screen resolution etc. etc. etc.

    Would be interesting to know how such a popular forum with a fair few visitors is being accessed.
