Although it's full of nifty tools and you can download tons of apps, the iPhone has more than a fair share of glitches, and is frustrating enough to make anyone wish they'd just gotten a Blackberry. Yes, it is convenient, and yes, you can store music on it, but texting is nearly a nightmare, especially when you're in a hurry because, 1) It's a touchscreen, which makes typing something quickly (and accurately) a challenge, and 2) the dictionary in the iPhone is less than exstensive; Names are turned into words you never even knew existed, and you can't type a short message with phrases like 'lol' or 'omg' or the word becomes ten more characters long and you have to stop midway through and erase the entire word, and type it again.

Although all phones experience this issue, I find it a bit frustrating that through all of the hype that Apple has endured for this phone, you can still be checking your email or searching for a restaraunt on Google and the phone just exists out of the app for no apparent reason.

I also have a feeling that even if you're paying for unlimited data/internet usage, if you go over the desired amount of time AT&T (and most other cellular companies that offer the iPhone) the pages take longer to load and sometimes the URL just outright refuses to work.

The things that Apple brags about most (wifi, multitasking, extensive memory, unlimited data) are FULL of glitches and unreliable.

The iPhone seems awesome in theory, but when it comes down to proving itself, it falls short of the glory Apple has dressed it in.

This is not a complete review of the product but more an amalgamation of parts of the unit, speculation and feelings on carriers. However, there is some good stuff in there and it's worth a 'Helpful', I think. Oh, there's no way it can have 'unlimited app space' unless there is such thing as an "infinite memory card". Nice try though!!
