I'm mister microsoft, me.
But I must admit I love my iPhone.
Until you've actually lived with one for a week, you can't really judge. All the people who had iPhones, then jumped ship to BlackBerrys et al, are all back with their iPhones now. Well, except business types.
It. Just. Works.
Purely conjecture this, but I buggered up a 1st gen iPhone using a non-Apple speaker dock. It got very hot. Now it doesn't charge properly.
Trawling the hackint0sh forums, it seems a fairly common fault.
The IC controlling the charging gets a little 'warm', ruining the logic board.
So, instead of redesigning the charging circuitry - maybe they've just pulled the 12v pins (with they've been saying they were gonna do for a while now)
But... I dunno.
O2's website is laughably bad. Always has been.
A buddy of mine tried getting a 3g jesus phone online yesterday. The website didn't work for him (big shock!)
Later that day he had his credit card declined, and his bank phoned him telling him someone had ordered 2 iPhones from O2 that morning with his details.
