I feel your pain... Ive got to get a new cell soon too. Debating an iPhone or WinMo solution. One of my biggest problems though is that I dont think that iPhones can send/receive MSN/hotmail emails, only gmail ones. Kindof a dealbreak there for me, since one of the things I enjoy about my current phone is using it for emails.

MSN added pop3 server stuff so iPhones can receive hotmail. The only problem i have encountered is activity on you iPhone isn't recorded on your hotmail. for example, you can receive your emails on your iPhone and read them but it shows up as unread on your computer. but other then that all the other features works really well.

I love my iPhone, its a little pricey for the data plan but well worth it. I do find myself not paying attention during lectures, but thats not a big deal...

from what I've heard, Apple will release a new iphone soon, along with Firmware 3.0.

I however, still am waiting for the Palm Pre, I'm bored of my ipod touch, which is basically the iphone, too many crap apps, the very few are too hard to find. I also want to see some of the 8+ megapixel phones and see how image quality is on them, I need a new pos camera as well and might as well kill 2 birds with one stone.
