Finally tipped over to the dark side – My new iPhone replaces the need for my LG Viewty and Nokia N810

I’ve been holding off on getting the iPhone since it was launched in Canada, since I didn’t want to be sucked into the exorbant data plans up here, and have been boycotting Rogers like alot of other Canadians when they announced their price points for the iPhone data plans…But I’ve seen how big the iPhone app store has become with 3rd party developers building so many free, fun, and useful applications.  So I finally caved in and picked up a 16Gig white model w. the Rogers minimum 1Gig data and voice plan for $60/month last New Years Eve when a 3rd party vendor was giving away $80 rebates for the iphone.

Some of the useful free apps I’ve been using are The Weather Channel that provides hourly weather forecasts and extreme weather alerts in your city; MultiConvert that converts almost anything you can think of; iTV for your local TV guide; OneTap Movies that shows movies playing at every theatre near you, along with the movie ratings/reviews and trailers to view; Yelp to find nearby Starbucks, banks, restaurants and other stuff near you, and also addictive games like Wurdle for Boggle fans.  

I find that I have a need for all the useful apps on the iPhone more than the advantage of the 5MP camera that my old LG viewty phone provides, and over the past year I found that I haven’t been using my N810 outside the home too much, especially since it’s so hard to find free wifi hotspots here in Toronto, and didn’t feel like carrying another device in addition to my phone, especially since I do alot of travelling and wanted to minimize on the road.  It’s also nice to have an all-in one phone, ipod player, and camera device with me now when I go out for a long run.  So it came in handy when I was able to listen to my iPod and take pics along the way while running the Disney Marathon last month.  Now if only Nike can update their Nike Plus Sport Kit so it’s compatible with the iPhone…until they do this, I’ll be keeping my Nano.  

But am looking to sell both my LG Viewty and my Nokia N810 now, and plan to post them on eBay or Craigslist soon, so if anyone is interested, feel free to contact me.  They’re both in minty condition.

    Hi Kylan,
    I’ll sell my LG Viewty for US$200 plus shipping, and it comes with 1 G Memory card, and plastic case. I’ve also had the screen protector on it since day one and it’s in mint condition. I bought it for US$535..sniff sniff..
    Since I’m in Toronto, Canada, this would probably be a better deal for Canadians since our gadgets are so much more expensive up here (especially unlocked mobiles), and you wouldn’t need to pay for the hefty customs fee when buying from US sellers.
