Dear Apple: Free the iPhone!

Dear Apple, I’ve been a Mac user since 1986 or so, and a Mac owner since 1990. I stuck with you through the bad years of the late 90s, when everyone thought you were doomed. I live in a multi-Mac multi-iPod household. I even have an AppleTV. Yet I don’t have an iPhone. I like the design of the iPhone. You’ve fixed all the major functionality shortfalls, like lack of MMS and instant messaging.
