Can you post a picture of the phone?
If you really want an iphone, wait until the new one comes out later this summer.
Swyped from a Droid
Before I got the Samsung Fascinate I had the iPhone 3g. Actually I still use the iPhone (over wifi) almost every day. I like the Fascinate OK but I think that when my contract is done I will get the Verizon iPhone.
I just think the iPhone has a more elegant user experience. And more accessories. And several of my fave apps are not available for Android. (and I admit I am bitter that I am still waiting for froyo)
I don't care about customizing or rooting, etc.
