iPhone … Day 1

Actually, it is like day 1.5 but since we didn’t get the phones set up until last night, I count it as 1 day. So far, I am still trying to get used to it. I guess it is ok, but I can’t get the iCloud to work right and synch my address book on my computer to my iPhone. I had to do it with a cord hooked up to iTunes.

A few other things I am really going to have to get used to that the iPhone doesn’t have, that my Blackberry did. I can’t have separate email alerts for my separate email boxes. For that matter, I was able to give each person their own email alert if I wanted to. I don’t see that functionality on the iPhone. Just different ringtones for each person. Not the same. I like to know who I am getting an email or text from without looking so I know if I have to look at it right away. Actually, they might be there, I may just not have found them yet. If anyone knows, let me know.

I also don’t like that I don’t have a blinking red light telling me I have a message of some sort. If I am on silent, or if I walk away from my phone and come back, I like to know I missed something without having to pick it up.

I am sure there are a few other things that I will have to get used to but so far I am doing ok.

  1. I liked the iPhone after I got used to it, but the one thing I still like better on the Droid is that it has a back button. iPhone requires a double click to change back to the previous app and even then it isn’t the same functionality as a back button.

    • There are still a few things I am going to have to get used to. I am sure I will find plenty of things I am not used to and won’t like but will have to get used to.

  2. Have you started ordering Siri around yet? That’s supposed to be the best part.

    • The wife tried some things yesterday when we were driving around. I haven’t really used it yet. It does seem pretty cool though and works with regular talking.
