    Think of the gigabytes as closet space. However much you have you will manage to fill up. On the Apple Care, I bought a Square Trade protection plan because it covers the accidental dropping type damage.

    The DVC Planner app for iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad has just been updated to version 3.0! Those using iOS 4.0 and above will now be able to create and view vacation calendar events from within the app. There are other neat additions.

    Ok on the same lines as this question....

    how do I transfer the pictures I have taken on my iphone to my computer? :confused3 I looked at itunes while my phone was connected and it only says to sync the pics from my computer TO the phone. Nothing for the other way...any help or suggestions? (oh and my pictures are of the dog too!!!)

    It probably depends on what kind of computer you have. On the Mac, you just plug in the phone and if there are pictures on it, iPhoto automatically opens to let you download them.

    You can get it to do the same under windows if you tell it to sync, or you can access the iphone as if it is a digital camera to get off the photos and video.

    EDIT:

    Oh, and for the person asking what iPad to get. I use a 64Gb with Wifi and 3G and one of the little metal apple bluetooth keyboards. With that combination you can do pretty much everything you need to.

    I haven't touched my PC or laptop in about 2 weeks! :)

    You can open your iPhone files just like you would a digital camera. When you plug it in to a pc, it should ask if you would like to open a folder and view the files. From there you can simply drag and drop into another folder.

    You can also import the pics with most picture editing software. I use picasa. It's the best free picture editing software out there. The software should recognize your phone as a camera and import pics accordingly.

    Try RideHeights - Orlando. It's not fancy but it comes in handy. My son is 5. Every trip he's typically tall enough to ride another new ride. However, he's still too short for some. It also has Universal and SeaWorld.

    I'm starting to stray. I've fallen in love with the Atrix Android phone with lapdock. That iPhone 5 better be really something to keep me in the collective.

    I can't believe what might be happening!

    My guy has become a real fan of Apple products. He has had four iPods, the most recent an iPod Touch. He has a Mac computer. He bought the first iPad, sold it when he got the iPad 2.

    Now, he wants to go to the Apple store in Boston to talk about the iPhone and phone contracts. It seems being connected only in WIFI land with the iPod Touch and having Verizon data plan for iPad is not enough.

    He thinks he needs (wants?) an iPhone!!!
    This is someone who talks to people on a phone maybe two hours per year!

    I think what he really wants is an inexpensive data (not phone) plan for the iPod Touch. Will that be coming soon?

    I don't talk on the phone much either, but wouldn't give up my iPhone. Having a data connection all the time is great.

    I think it is highly unlikely that we will see an iPod touch data plan. I guess never say never, but it's nothing I've ever heard of in the rumor mill.

    If he wants to have data on both an iPhone and iPad, he might consider getting an iPhone with a tethering plan and cancelling the data plan for the iPad. Then he can share a data connection between both devices. At least that way he's only paying for one data plan.

    I have heard that iPhone monthly fees are around $70. True? That seems like a lot of money.

    The data plan for the iPad is $15 - $20.

    If he does get an iPhone, can it also tether to my iPod Touch? No, I guess that would not work.

    I'm not sure whether you are AT&T or Verizon? But the fees will of course depend on what kind of phone plan you need (number of minutes, texting, etc.) Both require a minimum voice plan. That $70 minimum estimate probably includes data.

    We are on a family plan, which works well for us because I use very few minutes and my husband uses a lot more, but we share the minutes so it's more economical for us. If you are both low minute users, you may find family plans to be a good deal. You don't both have to use iPhones of course.

    Regarding the iPhone data plans, I don't know about Verizon. But on AT&T they have a $15 plan that gets you 200 MB and a $25 plan for 2 GB. If you want tethering, it's $45 and you get 4 GB which you can share among any devices that have WiFi - so yes, your iPod touch can tether to it, as can the iPad, as well as laptops or anything else that can use WiFi. I think the limit is 5 devices at a time. I'm not sure what the Verizon plans cost, but I think they are in the same ballpark, though they vary a bit. The tethering basically makes the iPhone into a WiFi hotspot, so connecting to it is like connecting to any WiFi hotspot. You can also tether with USB or Bluetooth to devices that have that.

    If his iPhone is the WiFi hotspot and he goes out of the house with his iPhone, does that mean that I no long er have internet access for the notebook computer or the iPad at home?

    Yes. The hotspot has to be relatively near to what's using it, just like any kind of wireless router (i.e., if you took your home wireless router out of the house, nothing could use it).
