So yesterday my iPhone finally got fully switched on (incoming calls). So I went out for dinner with a couple of my friends and continued on to have a few drinks in Austin’s Warehouse District (Fourth Street). I didn’t have any issues with the phone – it didn’t feel weird in my pocket or anything. No scratches either.
WiFi is way better than the Edge, but not available everywhere. Although I expect that to change. There is a downtown Austin wireless project sponsored by the city called COA_Mesh but I can’t get my iPhone to connect to it for some reason.
The SMS system is really cool. It shows a list of people and you click on the people to see the SMS correspondence like a chat. It’s very well done.
I’ve also already convinced at least one of my friends to get an iPhone – I should get some kind of referral thing. 🙂
Anyway – the iPhone continues to live up to the hype for me. I love it.
