    I wouldn't buy one. I prefer PDA and phone to be separate, I sometimes work on construction/ building sites and if I got cement splashed on an iPhone it will probably get ruined, my moto flip phone not a problem, I just wait for it to dry and brush it off. Though I'm not too sure if it got totally covered what would happen.
    There has been a lot of controversy in the States about the iPhone with owners being wrongly billed. Best case of this was a guy who went on holiday only to find that his roaming charges came to 3000 dollars. There is a feature on the iPhone that checks for emails automatically every 5 minutes. But its not that easy to turn off, I wonder why. So when he was abroad his phone continued to check his email every 5 minutes, so lots of roaming charges.
    Here are a few links for you;
