I have recently upgraded from one of these to the iPhone 4 - having had one of these for 18 months the only way I can describe this gadget is brilliant - the iPhone really is a masterpiece and I am sure overtime will turn into one of the great gadgets of our time.
I bought one of these because at the same time as my last contract was up for renewal, my iPod disintegrated - the iPhone combines the 2 fantastically, so you are effectively getting 2 gadgets in one which saves you carrying two expensive items around with you at a time.
The first thing you notice about the iPhone is it design; a lot of thought and effort has gone into it's physical appearance. It is very smooth and sleek, and it does take a bit of getting used to to be carrying around a mobile without a keypad on the front of it.
I have the white one, and would recommend against getting this, purely because every bit of dirt or scratch shows up quite badly. After 18 months the back of mine looks like it's been run over by a lorry!
The actual features of the phone are brilliant, and are very easy to get used to. You can download as many different apps as you want from the Application Store and flick through them. The apps which you add onto the phone can also be shifted around the screen, which is very handy for re-positioning the apps which you used the most. As long as you have a decent 3G signal, it is remarkably easy to download songs and applications.
The only problem I ever had with mine was when I downloaded the latest software update - this seemed to constantly freeze the phone up and it became very slow, but with problems like this you can easily revert back to an older version of the software.
In summary, this phone (to call it a phone is actually doing it an injustice - organiser / phone / music player / hand held games console would be more fitting) is absolutely brilliant. Ever since I have had it I don't think I've been bored, such as the variety of games / apps you can put onto it. The battery life is also brilliant, so even on longhaul flights you will be entertained.
Summary: Get one - this is quite simply the best gadget out there.
