this phone has the best design ever. it takes mobile phone to a new level but fails a lot in important areas. the touch screen is nice but may become a nightmare when texting(mainly long msgs or when you are in a hurry). even simple dialing can be tricky if you are not used to using this phone. secondly, the camera is so disappointing. a 2 mega pixel without autofocus, flash and i do not even tell you about the zooming. this is no match to SE camera phones. amazingly there is no video mode in this phone. this phone is definitely not a smartphone as far as applications and office tools are concerned. there is no 3g ie no video call.
my opinion , the iphone makes a revolution in terms of design but it ends here. that's a shame really
Yo CPW Guy, you may wanna check the T&C again, if the customer changes their mind, they cannot return it within 7 days, they can if they purhcased it from direct, but not from retail.
If you buy Npkia you are screwed with what you get at time of delivery, with Apple step by step you get all the upgrades as they become available :
Alongside the iPhone 1.1.2 update, Apple has also released an iPod Touch 1.1.2 firmware update which is available for some through iTunes. For those who are impatient, a direct download is also available:
Early reports indicate that the new iPod Touch update provides "Add Event" functionality to the iPod Touch, confirming an email exchange from Steve Jobs who promised that edit and add calendar events would be coming in a future software update. The lack of calendar editing had been described as a "bug" by Jobs.
It's a lovely handset, but not that powerfull in functions, as a HTC,or the Nokia E series and some other smartphones.I have my Nokia E65, ok,it's without touchscreen,but it has 3G and it's a great bussines phone, with Sym 60th,3rd series OS,so a lot of programs awailable.
goodbye iphone... it was nice knowing you. but im tired of the cat and mouse chase... besides, ive got Nokia to live with...
i bought i-phone oe month back and i am very satisfied with the features and the stlye . it is a unique piece and extra ordinary features and mind blowing clarity ,its quite stylish piece and center of attraction ....Aditude
Apple's iPhone 4GB model had been phased out already. Price of the 8GB model was already reduced by $200! Big crap!
had my unlocked iphone for over a month now, and i have had every phone in the book!!! no phone at all will ever beat the iphone amazing piece of equipment.!!
Beautiful handset yes,amazing user-friendly interface yes,great mobile phone........ far from it! Dont forget the states are behind us mobile technology wise so yeah its amazing there but not here up against say Sony Ericsson K850i!
yes there is way to forward sms are u mad??
all u need is a peace of paper and a pen so u can note down ur sms and write it again and send it to any one u like.
:) nice phone:) easy to unlock, if you buy one on ebay:)
No regrets if you buy this. Perfect OS, perfect working speed, perfect music.
Bad things - no 3G, no support for Bluetooth GPS (maybe later?)
i played with iphone for 2 hr and the punch line is that its a beautiful pieace of art u can have it for fun or show off. but u need to have another mobile for all practical usage why?
no sms forwarding
no contact search option (need to stroll to find ur contact)
no camera features/no flash
no video recording
no java support
no blue tooth file exchange.
so if u still want to buy this i won't discourage u people after all it a collectors
item(but no way a mobile phone).and apple is alive because of art lovers like us.
I work at Carphone Warehouse in technical support and we have been playing around with the Iphones for the past few weeks. I think half the things most of you make up here are really funny.
Here are some "facts" for you.
The iPhone returns processes depends on the situation:
-If the customer fails the credit check
They can return the iPhone to us within seven working days from when they bought it.
-If the customer changes their mind
If the customer changes their mind, they can return the iPhone within seven days of buying it.
If the customer bought the iPhone from Direct Sales or online the changes their mind, they can return the iPhone within seven days from the day after receiving it.
They must not have started to use it, so they must not have made or received any calls, sent or received any texts, entered any contacts, imported any tunes, taken any photos or surfed the internet.
-If the customer’s iPhone is faulty
They can exchange or refund their iPhone if they contact us within 28 days of when they bought it.
-If the customer has activation/computer/internet problems
Customers cannot return the iPhone if they have problems activating it or if they have problem with their computer or internet. For example, if a customer's internet isn't working properly and subsequently cannot use the iPhone, they will not be able to return the iPhone. They should make sure their computer and internet are both working properly before buying the iPhone.
Okay so this is copy and pasted from the "black and white" terms and conditions from Carphone Warehouse.
This should stop some of the arguing about the returns policy.
The only stupid thing that apple did was not to make a stylus pen with this iphone. The screen gets dirty quickly.STUPID APPLE.....
Got one here with me now, brought it home as im one of our stores demo guys. It is a nice phone but after an hour of playing with it thats it. Youve seen everything in this handset. Not worth the £269 price tag and crap tariff at all! But oh well cx will still buy it.
