Just picked up the new iPhone 4 to replace my dinosaur 3G. Thus far, it has worked perfectly! My free case has already been ordered and should show up in the next few weeks...

Anyone else think I've got about a snowballs chance in hell of Jody letting me get a $18k Mac Pro?

Yeah I have not even had a minute to try it yet but am excited about that and all other features I prviously did not have... Like reception! Well, iPhone 4 reception anyhow. Just glad to be off that 3G network. It was awful. Was skeptical about it considering all the chaos surrounding it's launch but I was assured by my boy that it was the best option at the moment in my situation.
As for the iPad, still not sold on it yet. I am fine with my phone and laptop anytime anywhere so until I am convinced otherwise, that's how it will remain. Gimmicks don't do it for me...

I've been with Apple for 10 years, ipad is the real deal. Kids will all have them under their arms in 3 years - carrying books to school is history, mark my words  :)

I am going to wait until it can do everything my computer can do and with the same ease...

I don't think ATT has started rolling out their 4g network yet...

And from what I can tell, the iPhone 4 is not an LTE (4g) phone

Oh well I am wrong. Feels like a whole new network! I do not keep up with phones or the technology surrounding them as much as I would like but thank you for the knowledge/ heads up.

Ahh, for some reason I read it as MacBook Pro not Mac Pro. Now it completely makes sense as to how you could get to $18k.

No sweat. I had a coworker think the same thing because of the iPhone 3g vs the iPhone 4. Sounds like it's on the new LTE network

It's highly likely that you're getting a better reception with better tech. I would give you a better answer than that but I don't know much about iPhones (I used to be into cell phones as much as I'm into jeans and knives and ecigarettes now)

I suspect that the iPhone 4 for Verizon will be compatible with the 4g network that they're rolling out in the 4th quarter/1st Q 2011
