    Go by a fixie and some pants that may have fit you in a previous life. Mount it on your handlebars and get videos of yourself busting your ass doing trackstands outside of the latest Starbucks wannabe coffee shop.

    Take it back to the store and replace it with something that's not an expensive glass brick.

    Don't panic!

    Take it back to where it came from and ask for a cash refund.

    Then take that cash refund and spend it on some nice bike upgrade(s).

    I'll bet you wouldn't be asking "now what the hell do I do?" after that.

    You got an iPhone? Well, that was dumb. I would return it. The new iPhone is coming out in like 2 months. Your iPhone is about to be old and obsolete.

    Welcome to the club! iPhones are the greatest thing since soup cans and a string. You will be able to waste endless hours with it, develop a compulsion to check your email religiously, download apps you will never use more than one, and live in fear of rain and sidewalk drops. The sarcasm aside, you will probably wonder what you did without it. Sure the Nokia 3310 had Snake to entertain you while you ponder deep thoughts on the toilet, but it was no smartphone. Now, you can flip through 10,000 cool facts or sling shot birds into strange objects. Oh wait, that was more sarcasm. Back to seriously, it is a great tool and you may find yourself searching and discovering more things while you travel or simply feel a bit more connected to the digital world. Then again, that compulsion to check the thing every minute may be real hindrance to actually enjoying the real world around you.

    I had an iPhone for a short while loved the battery life and how smooth it was, but I was always afraid I was going to kill it since I had had the other G'zOne phones before it. So I got my commando now and don't have to worry a bit. Not quite as smooth but lots more freedom and I get 2 days battery life on the weekends when i don't use it much.

    The new iPhone coming out soon, maybe, is gonna be way better. It's supposed to be a total redesign. Bugger screen. Thinner. Better Siri and just better.

    someones late to the party!

    iphones are great. there are phones that are more powerful, but they freeze a lot and/ or are nowhere near as smooth as the UI on the iphone.

    start looking for apps, dont buy any for now, just use free ones. if you start buying now you are just gonna find better and better apps to get and youll waste money.

    ive seen tons and tons of people say that they dont need an iphone, but as soon as they get one they say, "i dont know how i ever lived without one!". my wife included. she always though they were stupid, she just needed to text and make calls, no need for extra crap and a higher monthly bill. then i upgraded and gave her my old iphone, then we both upgraded when the 4s came out. ever since i gave her my old one shes loved it and learned to use more and more on it.

    instant access to all of your email accounts, pretty nice point-n-shoot camera, mp3 player, netflix, banking, shopping, forums, gps, pandora... so much stuff in your pocket! theres pretty much no reason to leave the house now unless you are working, buying groceries (even then you dont really have to leave your house), or riding your bike/doing other hobbies.

    I've had an iPhone 3G for almost 4 years. It is a good phone and has served me well. It is about time for an upgrade since it has developed some significant quirks however it is still pretty functional.

    When I upgrade, it will also be to an iPhone. I don't feel like coping with the endless iterations of Android OS.

    Haters gunna hate.

    Before I got my 4s (about a month ago), I was a hater too. Bottom line is I was upgrading from an EnV, pretty much any phone on the market is better than that so I am pretty damn happy with it. The problem with Android for me was their subpar performance on releasing updates. I was looking at the Droid 4 (hard to say goodbye to my keyboard) and the Droid Razr Maxx. The Droid 4 was virtually a new phone.... yet it wasn't running the latest ICS and there was no specific date for when it would get the upgrade, what gives.

    Although it pains me to say this you really can not go wrong with Apple, they are constantly releasing updates and the tech support is ALWAYS there.

    I'm not sure my phone not having ICS 4.0.4 instead of the ICS 4.0.3 it has now would influence my descision in buying the phone. It already does everything I could ever possibly want it to do.

    Sorry my post was a bit misleading, what I meant was that they weren't even running any form of ICS, they were still on Gingerbread with no planned release date for ICS.

    Ah, Ok I got you. Yes mine was running gingerbread when I purchased it in December. I believe it was the second week of March when it updated to ICS 4.0.3.

    ... and if we just ... Hey check this out......

    .... You can now weigh yourself with the iPhone4.
    Its really quite simple. Set the phone on the floor and stand on it for ten seconds. Your weight will show up on the screen. If it does not show your weight, then repeat the process, but this time step on it even harder.

    trade it for a flip phone that does nothing. That way, you wont be forced into phone addiction and be one of those tools who cant take is nose out of his phone.

    thats why i wont let myself get one.

    i dunno, some free-with-rebate LG turd number-pad phone. About once every two years, i drop my phone in the toilet or dog bowl. Its inevitable, so i dont get nice things when it comes to electronics. Actually, i mostly dont care.

    Since I work in and around water, I refuse to spend much on a phone. I have dropped cell phones in the water a few times. I do text a bunch so any phone I get has gotta have a functional keyboard but that's really all I need. I recently got a touch screen phone and all I have to say about it is, BFD?!

    The only reason I'm one of those tools in public places is because I have no friends in real life so I spend all my time on the Internet talking to my Internet friends. You all are way more awesome than any of the flesh sacks that occupy the space in the bars I drink at.

    Did he live in his mom's basement and did the shirt have Cheet-o stains on it? Was he there for carpel tunnel?
