Do you really believe that the 10% revenue share with a couple of providers is enough to make up for exponentially higher sales worldwide by other vendors? I'm not even mentioning royalties, subsidies, long-term contracts and accessories associated with the myriad more handsets. The European market is saturated, how many people will be using IPhones compared with normal handsets? It's such a tiny percentage that when coupled with the points above, none of the other manufacturers have anything to worry about for the time being. Wait for Nokia, with its 40% global market handset share, to request a better deal.
Somebody knows if in Spain it will be only sell for Telefonica or also 4 the other companies??
I know in UK is only for 02, this company belongs to Telefonica.
Btw i use the phone with fido in Canada and till now the reception seems to be good.
to put videos u have to convert them at first. i use a software called "mediacell ipod video converter". its a free software without any spyware/virus. after converting just drag n drop onto itunes and sync. u will have videos on ur phone. i hope u take ur headphones cuz the speakers are not loud at all
i have had this phone for a week. overall usage is okay but a few negatives. the mic is located right by the speakers...so there is an echo always while using speakerphone. 2 of my buddies have it and its the same issue. its not a network problem... its the phone. another disadvantage, it has no video. most phones do have video recording capability and i would have really liked that. as i have noticed, the battery is not the greatest. i assume its because of the large screen size and i assume the processor is running at 100% at all times. looking at the positives, i enjoy the wifi and the large screen. watch videos while travelling or even listen to music on the 8gb hard drive. i hope apple can make a few improvement in the second generation. with all apple products, this is very neat unit. sleak designed.
adding a flash and improving the camera to 5mp would be highly recommended for the 2nd generation.
the main thing i would like to say to increase sales for the iphone is not to lock them to service providers. though i unlocked mine, it would have been so much better if i was not put through the hassle. i am sure there are many people out there on the same page as me on this one.
feel free to comment on my comments/suggestions
I have some video file in my computer, so im trying transfer that video from PC to my iphone but i cant really..Can any one help ?
I got myself an unlocked Iphone from the US. I live in Canada and it works superbaly well under Roger's Network.
PS: Unlocked Iphone Owners, One piece of advise, when you sync your Iphone with Itunes DO NOT Update the Firmare Version, otherwise, it will back you out & lock the phone !!!
The current firmare version that comes with Iphone works perfectly! no need to any upgarde....
Enjoy the best Toy of the year Cheers from Canada.
what do you mean by saying the screen is too small? if 3.5" screen is small, which phone have bigger screen? nokia? shessh
I got an iPhone fron US & had a techie unlock it for me. It works great on O2 network.
If you upgrade a locked iPhone, I believe that it will recognise that the phone has been hacked/unlocked & will then disable the phone. Tip: just don't accept the upgrades!
A few minor issues with the IPhone; you can't forward texts (no sharing of those jokes. No 'copy & paste' anywhere. No video, No multimedia message by SMS text, Bluetooth only works with a headpiece/visor kit but cannot shart date/pics by Bluetooth.
Yahoo emails works great on it; more cost effective that a Blackberry email contract.
Hope this is useful
hey...can someone tell me please...if u have an unlocked iphone...can u still update your iphone?
the speakers on the bottom are pretty bad for playing songs. other than that, the iphone is very good to use. :D
How can you say you can ignore 3g? and it doesn't have bluetooth either,i guess it's so stupid to make such a phone and leave bluetooth out

I need the second song from this prezentation video of the I-phone(i feel the ... in the air) PLEASE HELP ! I`m DESPRED
Had the Iphone unlocked for about one week here in Switzerland,
I am coming from Nokia E 61, there is only one way to describe the good Nokia E61 : OBSOLETE !
The more I use the Iphone and the more I can't do without,
3G ? I had it on Nokia, but I frankly do not care not having it on the Iphone it connects smoothly on Wi FI at home and at the office.
The softwar eon the Iphone is simply another planet and when I look at the E61 it looks like a stone age tool .........
you have to have it to understand it ,
anybody making negative comments simply does not have it
United Kingdom... not sure when they'll be out where you are i'm afraid. Ours are £269 (gbp) to buy on a £35pm contract (inc un-ltd data usage). They're O2 only and are sealed units so not really worth trying to use other networks here and if you try to reprogram the software it messes up all the cool functions anyway, but the look like a totally awesome bit of kit, there asre some really good adverts for them on u-tube! :)
