I joined the dark side
…and bought an iPhone, something I said I’d never do. I’ve been wanting an Android phone for a bit now (as much as I love my Blackberry, they are sadly on their way out), but unless I wait for my upgrade next year, I’m looking at $300-400 for a new, refurbished, or slightly used phone. So I hopped on Craigslist and did some searching. I found someone selling a near mint iPhone 3G that was – and this was the selling point since I don’t have AT&T – jailbroken for $100. I contacted the guy and 2 days later, I became an iPhone owner.
Overall, I don’t mind this phone. The WordPress app is better than the one for Blackberry, as is the Twitter app. I like that I now have the capability to screencap things on my phone, so I can quickly immortalize hilarious things said in texts. However. I never realized how awful I was at typing on a touch screen. Thank goodness for autocorrect, though it’s already screwed me up a couple times. I’m also kind of disappointed at the battery life on this thing, but not many can compare to the Blackberry. I can’t use 3G because AT&T and t-mobile are on different frequencies, but I’m okay with only being limited to EDGE.
I don’t plan on being an iPhone user forever, I’m just using this until I can get my planned Android upgrade. What about other iPhone users out there? What do you like or dislike about your iPhone?
