Obligatory post I guess?  
Awright so I up and bought an iPhone! The local AT&T shop still had some 4GB ones left, so I snatched one for $300. Means that I'll actually pocket some money once I get reimbursed $375! Why am I getting a free iPhone? Long story! Some other time!

I actually spent most of the day trying to get this thing to work. The first one I got, the SIM card slot wouldn't close properly, so I had to take it to an Apple store to get it replaced (after waiting for an hour at the Genius Bar). Then it was back to the AT&T store to find a way to move contacts off my old phone, wherein I bought a thumb drive and consequently spent 2 hours reformatting a weird database file to play nicely with Windows Contacts... just a lot of work.

Anyway, it's fun and useful, and it provides Internet in the house while we're waiting for Comcast. This was less of a chore to type than I thought it would be! Okay goodnight!

You should play around with all the cool little hacks. But since you use Windows, I can't really give you the good GUI programs like Installer.app.

Re: some questions
Call quality's the quality of any other phone. It's still on AT&T's network, so don't expect anything CD-quality. And email's just fine for me! Retrieves my Gmail, only the problems are on Gmail's end... it downloaded All Mail instead of just my inbox, and didn't archive downloaded mail. But that's off-topic...

I got mine on Wednesday! How fun!

There are things I really wish it had (take videos, flash (both kinds), and AIM), but I'm totally in love with it.
