    Default Can't decide... Touch or iPhone...

    I can't decide... Do i want to get the 8gb iphone or 16gb touch... Now that you can unlock the iphone again... I have verizon though I don't plan on usining it as a phone...

    Reason why i wanted the iPhone is mainly i liked the feel to it better than the touch, and the back...

    Plus Camera + Volume Controls = Win?

    Question is is the camera+volume+back worth 8gb?

    =\

    if you are not going to use it as a phone then what's the issue?
    go for the touch...

    if you are going to hang around with a phone and a MP player better to do it with a 16G player.

    but if you want to use the iphone's phone abilities well that's a different story...

    WTF? What are we? His mom?

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.

    If u need it more for business than get touch.
    I recommend waiting a week or so and get the touch cruise.
    It has built in gps and 256 rom and 128 ram and faster processor.
    So wait if you can.

    But for entertainment iphone is the way to go

    iphone has speakers on it aswell (huge plus IMHO) aswell maps, mail come stock so you dont have to hack around to add them. aswell iphone comes with a dock and a wall plug (those are worth more than $100 if purchased later from apple) so the extra $100 over the 8gb ipod touch to upgrade to the phone is well worth it. anyone seriously wanting space and to carry around rediculous amounts of music should get a ipod classic.

    the only fault with the iphone is you have to get a fm transmitter that gets the audio from the jack as its purposly been disabled on the iphone through the connector

    does ipod touch have head phones with a button? im guessing not, so that would be another plus.

    Not true... I used an iTrip with it and it works fine. It says it's not made to work with your iPhone and blah blah blah, and you tap "No" so it doesn't go to Airplane mode and you're fine.

    If you're prepared to go through the whole restore, jailbreak trip to avoid the contract, get an iPhone.
    If you're prepared to pay a 35 (or a $ equivalent) contract for 18 months, buy the iPhone.
    If you're not prepared to go through the whole restore, jailbreak trip to avoid the contract, get an iTouch.
    If you're not prepared to pay 35 a month for 1+1/2 years get the iTouch.

    That's a very dumbed down view but I believe that is the basis on why people have to choose between the two.
    Why did Apple have to come up with such a stupid contract?
