Redeemed

We returned the Blackberry and both got 16G iPhones. Very happy with that decision. Also glad to have passed through the hype-time. We were waiting at Apple for less than 15 minutes.

But my email hasn't been working consistently. D'oh!

I never thought I'd want one of these things. When the first one was released (even announced!) I wasn't really phased. At that point, I liked having my phone here, my camera there, and my email and internet on my 13" MacBook. But I was caught up in the buzz about the new one. Faster speed, better apps, and I figure it might eventually allow me to let my MacBook go and eventually bump back to an iMac instead.

But right now, with not having email (which is apparently a reported issue), I'm a tad perturbed. That's the one thing that the BlackBerry did wonderfully!

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about the email issue. I hope they work it out.

Yeah, it is amazing the things that we get so used to so quickly and at times forgetting that we got along fine without them in the not so distant past.

So, we'll see how it goes with my iphone, waiting on any day now.

congrats on the iphone. it really is a cool piece. i've got the blackberry curve and often i'm envious of sharon's iphone....bummer about the e-mail thing. sharon's edge iphone has been running pretty good through all this iphone 2.0 stuff. almost more stable then what i'm hearing from my friends with 3G phones.

i'm with you on the imac though....way better then the macbook...at least more bang for the buck!
