  • What an idiot you are Libby66. let people have fun you homophobic moron.
  • Is this new? There seems to be several apps that have had updates in the last few weeks for "iOS 5 compatability".
  • That's what I am wondering. But now that the iphone 4S is out, I may get a 4. I like blackberry overall but after playing with the 2nd Generation, I am really considering iphone. The price is the only barrier
  • The 3GS is free now, and I just got mine like a month ago. It's an amazing phone, so what if I have to wait 3 seconds for a website to open.. not a big deal!
  • "The next generation of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system..."
    The iPhone is gonna get Ice Cream Sandwich flavored Android? Sons of bitches, there are still people waiting on Gingerbread!
  • iPhone owners are adults. We don't buy things called Ice Cream Sandwich with little green trash can robot cartoons.
    Time to grow up.
