    Question What phone(s) did you use before Iphone 4?

    Just curious how do you guys find it compared to your previous phone(s).

    For me, I absolutely love my Iphone 4. I had used the following phone in the past. In my opinion, I would rank them in the following orders:

    Iphone 4
    Nexus one
    Iphone 3GS
    Iphone 3G
    Blackberry Bold (sorry rim)

    Coming from a Nexus One, I would say android 2.2 is not a bad experience at all. However, the touch screen (non glass), poor exchange support (it's terrible), and the poor camera just don't cut it for me.

    Nevertheless, there are things I would miss, such as free google navigation and gesture search. I wish apple would implement those feature in the future but I highly doubt it (Google must have a patent on those).

    So what are the things you like/dislike about Iphone 4?

    i would love to get on the ip4 bandwagon ... i am very impressed with the phone i got for my gf. Few things i cannot overlook are:

    - cursor issue ... i.e you cannot go back to correct just part of an entry in lot of entry boxes.
    - I like the push rim has for non corp users and its free... with apple nothing like that for free.
    - for bb i can do wireless sync for my contacts/calendar/notes etc etc without bes... nothing for ip4.
    - overall voice/signal reception is not as good as my bb.

    - Browsing is the worst on bb... ip4 is ahead by miles.
    - i like the fact things work and don't slow down my bb when i have 10+ tabs in opera slows down.
    - The screen is fantastic on the ip4.

    Basically i would jump ship if i was able to sync wirelessly on ip4 and was able to access my pop3 email wihtout it locking the pop3 account.

    For people who dont want push email and the outlook integration ip4 is the way to go.

    I hear if you are an exchange user ip4 really becomes like a bb in terms of push email and syncing.

    Google offers free exchange service for gmail address(contact sync included). so if you are a gmail user, you can get free push service on the Iphone... and believe or not, the push is actually better than native gmail push support on android.

    if you are a yahoo user or hotmail user, you can always have your email forward to an gmail address to get it pushed. There is no reason to stay with BB just because you need a free push service.

    I also agree with you on BB's browser. Practically, it's useless. It is a pain in the @## if you had to look something up with bb's browser.

    I was using a SE X10, BB 9700, and an iPhone 2G. I will say that the iPhone 4 and 9700 are the best/favorite phones I've used to date.

    Dude like seriously the iPhone has all those things... It's called Gmail!
    17.50 ("killer plan": 200 mins by the second, unlimited E/W from 5pm) + 10 (retention VP: 2500 SMS, CD, VM) + 30 (data plan: 6GB with tethering) - 10 (data credit)
    = $47.50 + 911 + tax
    If you're selling a good plan on Telus, Bell, or Rogers, PM me.

    Yahoo Mail on iPhone is pushed. Hotmail is the only 1 and that's because MS doesn't want to provide a free environment that would attract it's small business users.

    Yahoo's contacts and calendars doesn't sync with iPhone wirelessly though and that's a shame.

    Overall I like Google Apps the most and with the multiple sign-in roll out I will love it even more.

    I have found some shortcomings of Google Sync's Exchange emulation. Such things as searching for emails on the server never works for me. The date range works but iPhone doesn't give me enough options. I wish syncing up to a # of recent mail works but it doesn't. Only date ranges are working.

    I also have a beef with Google Contacts. I can't for the life of me to have the email address type to sync. I set Home, Work all the time but they never sync properly and eventually becomes Other by default.

    These shortcomings are not all that bad though for a free Exchange-like environment. You can always use the excellent Gmail mobile interface on Safari to search your archives.

    And prior to that, a mess of Nokia, Motorola and Sanyo dumb phones. Ah, the dark days...
