I have played with both. The iPhone is better in every way. What it lacks in 3G, the browser makes up for. Plus, the EDGE isn't horribly slow. I have a 3G phone too, and it isn't worth the money.

iPhone. I don't like windows mobile. I'm sure I'm in the minority there.
And touch screens are awesome, so much easier to navigate. They both have touch screens don't they?

EDIT: Yes, both touch screen:

something that isn't well known about the iPhone keypad. It's smart, maybe smarter than YOU. It's better than T9 because it takes into account you hitting the wrong letter. you can pretty much just mash keys in the right area and it figures out what you're trying to say. I constantly hit the wrong letter on my blackjack, and I have to go back to fix the message.

Yep, it does do the correction pretty well, which makes it just as a good if not better than a tactile keyboard.

Seems like normal treatment to me just like a dirty bitch

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

If you're a dropper then get yourself a case. Yeah it makes it bulkier than it already is but it's worth it because you cannot get insurance on the iPhone. I don't drop mine very often (2-3 time while I have em) so I have a clear skin to keep it from getting scratched. I forgot where I bought the skin from but if you end up getting it I'll look it up and let you know if that's what you want.
