Can't wait to see the iPhone - but I'm not rushing out to buy one. Living in NYC, I need a phone with reliable, everywhere service. As much as I love to hate Verizon -- and the emphasis is on "hate" -- the last thing I want is to return to cell service that leaves me yelling "Can you hear me? Can you hear me now??..."
- or staring at a screen indicating "dropped call" or "no service."
Now why would I pay $600 to return to that?
The iPhone costs about $600 -- and features ONLY AT&T service -- and a 2-year contract, no less. Now, I don't have this information first-hand; I got the word from David Pogue at The New York Times.
I'm sure it's a thing of beauty -- but 'til it gets its functional act together, I think I'll wait.
