« iPhone 4 is working great for me | Main | Photos of the (controversial) 2010 Salem Art Fair »

One bar may make no difference to you, but to others it might. I received one of the new iphone 4's as a replacement for my trusty blackberry, but the signal at office with the iphone on the desk was only at one bar, considerably lower than the blackberry. When I picked the iphone up and held it, the signal dropped completely, rendering it unable to make calls. One bar less sensitive than the blackberry and then one bar further down when held = unusable, at least for me. Further, not being able to select all e-mails and then move or delete means that anyone receiving hundreds of e-mails per day has an enormous task sorting them. Blackberry and others make this very easy. Not being able to sync to a main computer wirelessly really sucks, other phones can do this, all I have to do with my blackberry is walk into same room as my laptop and it is updated. Not being able to bluetooth files is another draw back, and the list goes on and on.

Before claiming near perfection, perhaps you should try putting yourself in the shoes of other more business minded users and perhaps even trying a few other phones?

I returned mine as not fit for purpose, not being able to make phone calls in weak reception areas, not being able to manage anything other than a few e-mails, not being able to wirelessly sync, not being able to bluetooth file transfer, all these basic functions are readily found on other phones. Near perfection - no way!!

You meed mobile me to sinc wirelessly. Or gmail. Works perfect:)
