    Is the iPhone Worth The Money?

    My phone is on its last legs right now and my contract with Verizon is up. I'm seriously considering switching to AT&T to get an iPhone, but it's a $70 per month contract to get the cheapest iPhone plan. You have to lock into a 2 year contract, and most cell companies are not very open to cancellations. 

    For those of you who have iPhones, are they worth the money? I love all the features and would love having a good phone for a change, but I also don't want to bite off more than I can chew financially. What are your thoughts on the matter?

    Yes it's worth it:)  You can watch movies on it, TV shows, Youtube, Music and buy TV shows and Movies and transfer them to your iTV or computer.  You can play games, keep organized, take photos, email, monitor your investments, keep up with sports, take notes, SMS, use a calculator, check the weather and use the internet.  You can manage your contacts, integrate with Yahoo email, Google email, Facebook, MySpace and AOL.  You can learn a new language, buy music, read over a thousand newspapers or magazines. You can use GPS, find local restaurants and get directions, use the alarm clock, stop watch, world clock, google earth and so so so much more.  You can even tell how fast your car is going and it's rate of acceleration and you can tell what song is playing on the radio and buy it.   Oh yeah, you can even call someone.   This phone is ridiculous, insane and the best product man ever made and my idol Steve Jobs. He is AMAZING!

    I'm glad to hear this mini-laptop also works as a cellphone. My current phone doesn't do any of those things... it barely even works as a phone.  
    I can replace a lot of bulky things with one little device. For example:

    1) Cell Phone 

    2) Camera

    3) Video game console

    4) Schedule book

    5) Roadmaps or GPS 

    6) Blackberry for email

    7) Laptop for internet browsing

    8) TV and DVD Player

    9) CD Player 

    10) Pen and paper

    11) Friends 

    That's an entire suitcase worth of stuff I could fit into my pocket. Since I can't go anywhere without my favorite gaming console and a good TV, this will save me a lot of trouble hauling stuff around.

    I have been extremely impressed with how Steve Jobs opened up the application development kit. That alone will mean this phone will constantly evolve along with the rest of the world. It was a bold but ingenious move to open up the programming software for the whole world to use, but I think it will revolutionize the whole industry and secure Apple's place in the world.

    Every man dies, but few truly live. Live your life to its fullest, every day as if it were your last.
