Do any of you, dear flist, have advice on buying an iPhone? I am planning on getting one this week.

Currently, I have a flip phone from a Verizon family plan that it is time to retire and move myself into the 21st century with an iPhone. For my own account, I already have an internet wireless and Fios connection and a landline phone bundle with Verizon. I plan to add the iPhone to my current plan, or switch to a new bundle with Verizon if it will be cheaper.

Would it be cheaper to buy the iPhone itself from the Verizon store, or get it at Best Buy or an Apple store and then take it to the Verizon store to set up the account? Any advice on which iPhone?

I'm going for an iPhone instead of a Smartphone because I like apple computers and have a MacBook, but if you think that's a mistake, now is your chance to tell me, if you'd like.

Any advice on what I should look for in the Verizon plan?

I don't think Comcast is an option for my apartment building, but I'd rather not go with them anyway.

Tank yew!
It's been over a week since I had a dial tone on my landline home phone, and after days of many hair-tearing hours on hold on my cell phone, technicians were supposed to come out today to work on the lines for my phone in the basement of my apartment building. They did not show. The DSL has been getting spottier and spottier over time, too.

I've had Earthlink as my DSL and landline phone provider for over a decade. They used to be good, with responsive customer service, but I'm so done with them now. And their web chat help is a total joke.

So US peeps, do you have a national internet/landline provider your'e happy with that you'd like to recommend to me? Or a regional if you're in the mid-Atlantic? Or any advice for me on the switch over process?

I've had recommendations from a few people for Verizon, and I saw on a provider rating website that customers seem in general to be happy with that service. I hate joining one of the big monopolies, but Earthlink's time seems to be over and I need something reliable.

I feel so insecure without a landline--the batteries run out so quickly on my little cell phone. I'm not a big cell phone fan.

All advice on this is very welcome.

Is anyone else having trouble loading LJ? The pages are all wonky and won't load any images or comments.

I recently updated to Safari 5.1.7, and installed a java script update yesterday, but things loaded fine this morning and didn't get all wonky until this evening.
