MMs is Multimediamedia messaging, yes. But MMS is easier and simpler than using email. Plus, it doesn't cost nearly as much as it does to connect to the net to send an email.

You have to download things you wouldn't have to download on a PC, NO RIGHT CLICK, and we have macs in my school, and it seems like there's constantly a problem.

what do you have to download?? ive never had to do that. and you can have right-click if you get the mighty mouse or ues ctrl+click or use a PC mouse that costs less than $3, on school systems there are alot of connected machines and with every computer you add the chance of trouble multiplies

NO, stupid apple hijacks your music and won't let you move it once you put it on there. I'll never buy a device that dosen't allow me full control over my music!

You can get your music back off an ipod using Sharepod. Pity apple didn't allow this themselves though.

are you talking about DRM protected music ? because you can buy non DRM protected music from the apple store, and iff you rip music off a cd or elsewhere you have full control and you can do whatever with it

$199 for the iPhone you pay monthly for the contract

So the phone's 200 dollars, minus the 2year contract discount?

lol you go to the store and buy the phone for $199 then you "activate" it by signing up to an AT&T; 2 year contract and every month you pay AT&T; for the contract

Yeah, so the phone is much more. You get a deal, a discount, if you buy the phone with a 2 year contract. The phone, the actual iPhone is probably around 400 dollars or more. When you.
  • But it through ATT
  • Get a 2 year contract
they give you a discount.

Next time you're in a phone store, check out the price thing. They usually say something like 99.99 with 2 year contract. Look at the actual price.

but you cant buy the phone without the contract

ok you buy the phone for $199 then your supposed to activate it in the store, you can however choose not to do this but after 30 days you get a fine which bumps the price up quite a bit more so then you have an expensive phone which you cant use unless you wait for the new jailbreak to come out then jailbreak it, BUT apple says there cracking down on this and they will try as hard as possible to "brick" your iPhone if you do do this.

Maybe with the iphone, but with mostly every other phone you can buy it, no activating or anything else. When you do it with the 2year contract, it is cheaper because ATT gives you a discount when you buy it with the 2year.
