    Hey All, I know I dont post here much but I am also not a lurker. So Well here is the story. It was stolen, not to go in any details but i got mugged. I am over seas (India) and I know I can get another one if i walk down the street but should I? Should i really get another iPhone? Dont get me wrong, Its a kik azz device, i love it for the web and email but battery life was not up to my likings nor did i even really put a song on it. I know this is an iPhone forum and people will say YEP GET ANOTHER ONE but why? I am looking at other devices and none of them are as sexy, cool or Pimp. Viewty any good? Reviews say NO but others say yep. What shall i get. NO PALM, Maybe a Blackberry which is the same price as the iPhone. I had it since it was at 1.1.2 OTB, used xsim for a while until i just went to 1.1.4 and used zIphone (thank you by the way to the dev's). What shall i get? Convince me to get another iphone and or convince me to get a different device.

    P.S Thank you all for the support that this forum has given me and thousands like me who just want to learn about tricks and tips with the iphone.

    I filed a police report and they said its a 25% chance to recover it. Man i should have kicked the guy in the ballz and ran. Atleast I wouldnt be posting this here and would had my iphone.

    I saw another guy with one today and just wanted to bum-rush him and take it and be like YOU DONT DESERVE IT, You didnt even jailbreak it. Uhhhh... Soo much potential but he lacked the will... Anyway talk to me ppl.

    Take care..

    Regards.

    IMO i think another iPhone is the way to go. Like you said none of them are as sexy, cool or Pimp. With the upcoming firmware and its new features and the way people are developing new and usefull programs it can only get better! Stick with the iphone i say! And battery life i know is not the greatest but used as a normal phone is is average as any other phone and the more it does the shorter the battery life as with any other phone. The only option i see you having is waiting for second generation iPhone or getting another now.
    If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

    I take it the only thing stopping you is expense? I had a Treo, like my iPhone much better. Blackberry's are cool, but useless without an exchange server to link up with. There's nothing else out there right now that does everything so 'nicely' as the iPhone.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    I don't think I can use any other cell phone. The iPhone has everything for me and I just couldn't live without it anymore.
