    I've been in the computer biz since 1961 and have purchased jus about every new thing that came down the pike. I waited a full 10 days after announcement before buying my iPhone. What a wonderful device. I love it (just about) every way.

    On a trip to Spain I dropped a hotel room writing desk on it and crushed the glass. This event did NOT fill me with joy :mad: It worked fine after that, but the shattered glass faceplate made using it iffy (and painful on two particularly bloody occasions).

    Imagine my surprise when, after returning to Atlanta, I took into my local Apple store, whined pitifully -- and they handed me a brand new one! Just transferred the SIM card and wished me a happy day -- no charge! Gotta love that.

    Since the September release of iTunes I notice a + sign beside some tunes in the wi-fi store. I'm guessing that means a ringtone is available for that tune? But I can find any confirmation of that. Anyone know what the + means?

    Apple, talk about customer service. I'm sure a repair would have done just fine. Great stuff.

    Thanks for the welcome, Alex! I didn't make myself clear. I know the "plus" indicates a higher priced tune on iTunes. But on the iPhone, the amount button always shows $0.99 and never (so far as I can tell) shows $1.49. If it did, it would answer my question.

    I was really after how to tell which wi-fi store tunes have a ringtone assoicated with them. If it's not the "+" then I guess that's a function you can only get from iTunes directly.
