You have a choice of providers other than AT&T, many (if not all) of which offer better plan pricing and superior networks.

That's the biggest advantage right there.

Unlike most users here, I actually LIKE the iphone. There is NO WAY I would switch to the awful ATT service to get one however.

Re: Why is TP2 better than iphone

Apple is technology for idiots. Dumbed-down computer technology with better advertising. You're smarter than them because they need the dumbed-down technology and you don't. You can fully customize anything on your phone and they basically have to suck up what Apple gives them and take it in more ways than one.

We discussed a lot of comebacks and stuff here...
Friend asked why I didn't buy an iPhone...

But you also need to know stuff like this:

Re: Why is TP2 better than iphone

I hate how apple panders to dumb people in their advertising, its so insulting.

"Our products just WORK, so you NEVER need to think! No maintenance needed, no viruses, no harmful applications, no individuality whatsoever! And its in a pretty, shiny case too. All for the low, low price of $1000 & up for the most base model laptop, the equivalent of which is Kabuk1's $260 Wal-Mart netbook!"

Asinine. But anyway, onto the anvantages of the TP2 over the iPhone.

Removable battery
Removable storage
Hardware keyboard
No software limitations(install whatever the hell you want)
Multiple service providers
No yuppie bull****
Complete customizability

And much more that I can't think of cause I haven't slept in 30 hours.

Re: Why is TP2 better than iphone

"If you've got tons of viruses on your PC, don't worry: it's not your fault! It's because you have a PC instead of a Mac, not because you're a moron opening any email that comes to you and those 6 hours a day you spend on that sketchy online poker website! And don't listen to PC when he comes out with a new Windows version and makes promises! Apple's style is to basically not mention our limitations and release them 3 years after everyone else has them, like we did with the iPhone and MMS! And Apple is great for your image! If you like looking like you have low intelligence and are fans of Paris Hilton and other celebrity idiots, you'll fit right in when you walk into the Apple Store! So if computing is too complicated for you, and you need a simpler lifestyle, feel free to get a Mac! We like to think of it as just going to college and taking all easy 100-level courses. Sure, you got a 4.0, but you're not that smart."

Re: Why is TP2 better than iphone

Sorry, have to say it:

who cares? if they like their iphone, great, if you like your tp 2, great....wtf?

the only way it would really matter is if you worked for or had stock in, one of the two co's. other than that, it's a preference thing. No more important than if I told you I like the color black better than red.

sorry, just my 1/2 cent <after outrageous taxes that our forefathers fought against and we pay without question>

now if you want to talk politics, then we've got a discussion.....

Re: Why is TP2 better than iphone

This is kinda funny.

We had a corporate Verizon account with probably 75 phones on it.

The owners Wife decided she just had to have an iphone like all her yuppie friends. Because of this, our owner switched the entire account to ATT & everyone had to buy a new phone (I stayed with VZ service).

Now, everyone on ATT is bitching because the service blows. We have two buildings on our business property. If you walk to the back building you cannot make or receive a call on an ATT phone.......

I would thank you 500x over if I could. Who fing cares if you have an Iphone, TP2, or a POS free phone? It's all in what you like. Tell them to lick your nuts and move on.
