I hate threads that start with stupid questions, but here I am asking one. So hate me, forgive me, answer me, please.
Should I buy an iPhone?
I have an iMac for day to day use, with LaCie backup, and a MacBook Pro for use on the road, also with LaCie backup, and a mobile phone, too, of course. I do not care much for the mobile phone I have ( a 2 year old Motorola model), so I am thinking about swapping it for an iPhone.
But I don't want to swap the Motorola thingie for yet another gadget that I won't like. So, iPhone fans, pls tell me, what's to like about the iPhone? What will it give me that I don't have between my mobile and my MacBook Pro?
I have a Telus mobile now, and I have only looked at the Telus plans for the iPhone 4 32GB. Looks like a reasonable enough price from Telus. I am concerned about quality of service, not the cheepest price.
So, iPhone fans, pls tell me, what's to like about the iPhone? What will it give me that I don't have between my mobile and my MacBook Pro?
You don't need an iPhone; you need a BlackBerry.
Joking aside. Do you have access to an iPod Touch (latest generation preferred)? An iPod is a good proxy for an iPhone - you can play with it and see what it can do. The only thing that I know of that an iPhone can do that an iPod can't do is actually make phone calls. Otherwise they are pretty much identical.
iPhone apps. Go to the app store and see if there are any you need. Perhaps Gps or such.
True, but see if there are apps on other phones that do what you need as well. Don't lock yourself to an iPhone for the sake of if there are better or cheaper tools that do the same.
