I am happy with the iPhone. I love it, in fact. The 3Gs fixes a lot of what I don't like about it, so I wish I could upgrade. Blame AT&T for crippling their existing customers from upgrading cheaply. There's also heavy rumor that the unnecessary delays in implementing iPhone features on the AT&T network is that the network is overloaded with the iPhone's popularity. Another fail for AT&T. I'm still holding out hope post-2010 that Verizon gets a version of the iPhone. Once that happens, I'm back there in a heartbeat.

The one thing I found absolutely critical for the iPhone is the use of WiFi. The lack of it was a dealbreaker for me on the Blackberry Storm.

What wireless carrier gives their users a heavily subsidized phone *every year*? It's not just AT&T. :)

True, but not implementing the features of the iPhone and "promising" to allow them in the future isn't acceptable, given AT&T's exclusive contract.

I read earlier today that Rogers wireless in Canada is charging their customers extra to use MMS with the iPhone 3Gs.

Shame.
