    I just wanted to remind everyone that even though this phone is sweet (I love mine), don't start acting like a typical d-bag when they get their iPhone. You all know exactly what I'm talking about. Certainly if someone asks about the phone then share your feelings, but don't be reminding everyone you have a sweet phone every 4 seconds. I've seen so many people turn into total asswads the second they get their iPhone, and I don't want my fellow android brothers suffering the same fate. Enjoy the phone everyone =D

    telling a dbag to not be a dbag is like telling a duck not to be a duck. if you are a dbag, i don't care if you carry a jitterbug, it's gonna shine through in your posts.

    I have a friend with no interest in phones that hardly uses his phone who got a 3Gs on a very nice contract for christmas...

    I on the other hand got a HTC tattoo on a not so nice contract...

    needless to say he has been a total cock ever since...

    That is why i am trading in the Tattoo for an N1!

    This thread is insulting, suggesting that the typical iPhone owner is a douchebag. The reality is that there are plenty of them [douchebags] out there- given the popularity of the iPhone, some are bound to make their way into the hands a few jerks.

    All iPhone owners are D-bags, all Vectra owners drive up your arse and I can't believe I replied to this thread...

    While I agree with the OP, I have to defend iPhone users. They can't help their douchey-ness. If your skinny jeans were so skinny that blood hasn't flowed to your nutsack since 2007 you would be pretty douchey too. And anyone with a haircut so bad people call it "emo" is only going to pour gas on that fire. Lighten up on them.

    What is going on with people on this forum? I thought only iphone users had skew view on other smartphone users but now i see its just the personality rather than phone they have that makes up fanboy or just...plain ignorant [insert]. Very well posting buddy...way to low your status.

    lol, who cares about a damn phone, it's a stupid phone. I mean, I like my N1, but why in the world would I try to show it off. I only show it to people who are interested.

    I hate when i see people showing off their iphone i work in retail and there is always someone waiting in line or while their paying, they pull out their iphone just cuz they think its cool. Annoys the hell out of me just keep it to yourself unless someone wants to look at it.

    Thing is, most of my iPhone owning friends don't show off their iPhone - they know as well as everyone else that they are old news now.

    Mine are the contrary. Most of my iPhone-owning friends (and family... literally, my whole family own iPhones) don't show off their iPhone because 1) They've owned it for some time now and the novelty of showing off their phone has worn off, and 2) They know that their iPhone is better than whatever you're carrying. Why? Because you can't draw a crowd by showing that your phone can multi-task. But you can draw a crowd with a well-executed and designed iPhone app. Google Sky only holds their attention for about 5 seconds.

    I'm not seeing why that would be an issue. But maybe I am seeing a bitter person.

    mmm dont worry..... no N1 owner will have the opportunity to act like an "mmm dont worry..... no N1 owner will have the opportunity to act like an "iphone douche bag" because N1 users have nothing to show off.....chances are, the person you're showing off ur phone to will chuckle at the FC popups u keep getting and the 3g/edge blinking.....off course, i dont expect anyone to make fun of your "apps" because i expect you to be wise enough not to show the android "apps" to anyone, unless it's another android/google apologist like MML....
