    Not a problem. You will get much more personalized service here than on the large Apple blogs. :)

    As AirRocker said, Ask away!

    Maybe it's time to carve an Apple support forum out of the generic Computer Talk forum ... ;-)

    I for one would love to see a nice easy primer on setting up iTunes as I have never owned and iPod or any other MP3 device.

    Now, I have a special situation as I have my music digitized and I play it with a few devices (Xbox 360, HR20s, DSM-320 and directly on a couple of computers). Therefore, my file structure is set and nothing will be allowed to change or touch it. I have heard iTunes will, by default, try to move things around. Is this really the case and is it easy to make it play nice with my existing setup?


    Any other hints for a first time user?

    Sounds like a great idea but it's something that we wouldn't do. DBSTalk is a satellite site first. Creating more off-topic forums would not be in our best interest. Besides, there are tons of really good Apple forums already out there. :)

    The apple forums are good... but kinda busy and cluttered right now... and they have disabled their search feature at the moment to improve site performance... so it's hard to find anything...

    Some of the other sites I like are:

    www.macrumors.com & www.appleinsider.com

    I'm not impressed with the iPhones at all. I've seen them (the non-3g's) and played around with them but they do not impress me at all. I have AT&T Tilt (or HTC 8925) and feel that it is the best phone around. It does more than the iPhones with some similar features. I've tried the "keyboard" on the iPhone and I made a lot of typo's as compared to the tilt. Tilt are the BEST phones around!

    I had an HTC phone once. Briefly. I still walk crooked and go to a chiropractor to correct my own bodily tilt from the giant 5 pound slab in my pocket. The software was questionable and the form factor was clunky. :lol:

    It's been a wee bit frustrating to get the straight scoop on how long those of us who went the "direct fulfillment" route will have to wait until our iPhones finally arrive. When I ordered mine on Friday, I was told 5 to 7 days. Yesterday when I phoned AT&T for an update I was told 10 to 14 days. I'm sure the sales and customer support staffs are still slammed given how greatly demand seems to have outstripped supply (once again), but you would think they would have learned a bit more from last year's initial plunge. Oh, well, if nothing else, I can track my progress through my credit card charges as my card doesn't actually get hit (or so they tell me) until my unit ships.

    Hi John,

    I almost ordered one as well from our local ATT store on Friday. Decided to just wait a week or so and see how things flush out. They got about 50 in last friday and they were gone in an hour. Please let us know when you get yours. It seems some people who ordered on Friday are actually getting them this week according to a thread on macrumors.com.

    Here is a place that will replace your iPhone (or iPod) battery for a lot less than Apple.

    $20 for the battery plus $25 for installation plus shipping. Chris B. can just walk in and wait should he ever need it as its right there in San Antonio!

    Now we can all just send our iPhones to Chris when the battery needs replacing and he can take them in for us... :D
