i have had my nokia 6230 for 4 years now, and i would chose that over this phone anytime! i mean why pay over $1000 on a phone. i know it plays music and video and web etc, but a phone is a phone. it is used to call people.
on my 6230, at least you can actually hear the other people on the other side, unlike this phone!
apple has focued so much on internet and music on your phone, that it's pretty much taken away what a phone is used for!
if you want a phone, but a phone
if you want an mp3 player buy an mp3 player
if you want a mp4 player buy an mp4 player
if you want internet, buy a computer or a smartphone which at least has 3g.
Who wants a slide out qwerty keyboard, the whole point of the iphone is to do away with stuff like that.
If you dropped it in water and tried to turn it on afterwards it’s too late.
You should have dried it completely before trying to use the device. As to fixing it you will be better off binning it. Because you tried to switch it on before drying it the board will have burnt out.
When XPERIA X1 is released, then apples going down the drain!
by the way, the XPERIA X1 shouldn't be called the iphone killer, it should be called the nokia n95-2 killer.
why is XPERIA X1 better
1.it has qwerty keyboard
2.it has 2x resolution as iphone on only a 3"
3.it has a decent camera
4.it has buttons so you don't need to put up with touchscreen
5.you can actually hear people when you call them! unlike the iphone.
6. the XPERA X1 is only a concept, and works just fine at the moment, apart from the graphics hardware. by mid 2008 many people would agree that when it is released, it will be much better than what we have been waiting for.
7.it's got 3g!
8.a 3.5mm jack which works with ALL headphones, unlike iphone where it only works with ipod headphones (which by the way, many people would agree that they are bad quality anyway)
Taken from another site.... Nokias attempt at touchscreen.
i dropped my iphone in water.
ever since it doesn't work.
any idea how to open it to dry it?
or how to have it fixed?
screen gives a message: charging with battery sign.
anyone can help?
I was poppin' bottles with my buddy a couple days ago and he got some on my iPhone. I dried it off and it still worked!!! I love this phone but the service sucks my left nut.
SE-X1 c0uld SERI0USLY be my next ph0ne!!! that thangs' l00kin H0T right n0w!!!
I bought my I- phone a week ago. And sold it today.
It has gr8 features such as ipod
amazin tft touch screen and many many more installers.
If so than why did I sell it.
Well it doesn`t work with the 3g sim card. Once installed u just cant make phonecalls. NEW SIM CARDS that r being provided by orange - France just refuse 2 work with it.
Than even with the old sim it takes ages 2 connect 2 the internet with the EDGE in europe. Than it has great problems with switching between the networks once u go abroad.
I am aware that most of the americans dont travel outside america but us europeans actually do.
I must say that it was a big disapointment
Time to weigh in as an iPhone owner now instead of just a fan-boy.
I have used many phones over the past few years - some subsidized, some not. Most have been small, flip phones (Razr, Razr V31, Sync, Nokia 6131, 6290) and not PDA type phones. I find the iPhone's largest jump between it and these type of phones to be its UI. It works and has plenty of nifty features inside it that help it be a consistent experience.
The web browser, network connection, email and IM are all very well done (the home screen notifies you when you have new messages and how many) and the size of the screen actually lets you use it as a web/email browser without tearing you hair out.
It isn't perfect though. Apple could stand to update several areas that aren't picture-perfect. The call log list, though nicely readable (red highlights missed calls) needs a deliniation between incoming and outgoing calls. Also, getting info on a contact doesn't allow editing, or a quick jump to the actual contact. On the iPod side of things, the iPhone will fade out a song to alert you to a call, then take you right back to the beat you left off at (very Apple-like-cool), but doesn't do the same for videos, instead taking you back to the video list.
I am rating it as a solid 8 and I am not done playing with it. I would love things like voice-dial, GPS recevier (location pinning only gets close, not quite close enough), and updated Bluetooth handling, but for me they aren't deal-breakers.
Final word - don't just hate something because it's made by a company you have an issue with. I was pretty close to getting a Tilt, but the pricing (non-subsidized at this point on my contract) kept me away.
the on screen keyboard is virtually impossible to use for those with fingers
hahahah bluetooth only for headset such a stupid idea"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hi Iv got question about the speakers ,is sound is stereeeeoooo?????
my phone just mono
Sorry it wasnt a patent filing but a trademark filing, but still exciting :P
iPhone 2 will not be out until much later this year. The 16gb model upgrade will hold sales until its ready.
Most likely iPhone 3g will be out at the earliest June in America and around Christmas again for Europe.
But AT&T have already slipped up and said iPhone 3G will be out in 2008 for definate.
What's more exciting is recent news that Apple have filed patents for gaming devices, both handheld and console form! Apple Pippin take 2! lol
Really hope they make a games console to take on xbox 360. I can see it now Apple iGame!! Lol
The price is justified in my opinion. For what you are getting its relatively cheap. Not long ago iPods cost £300 for just single MP3 function and nothing else.
Also take into account because you are paying for the phone outright, it is not classed as a subsidized phone. This means you can change your tariff once a month instead of having to wait every 3-6 months.
Most importantly it means when iphone 3G comes out you can purchase that no matter what stage your tariff is at, i.e there is no need to wait until the end of your 18 month contract in order to buy it like most phone contracts. I have only had my iPhone for 2 months but if iPhone 3g came out tomorrow I could buy it and register it to my current number and carry on as usual without having to increase my 18 month contract or take out a new one.
