The iPhone is a good look but over rated! It will only sell cause of thr name & the looks. The 2 rivals of the iPhone (nokia & sony eric) would chew it up & spit it back out!
While training for the "large mobile phone retailer" didn't they teach you that Iphone Is programmable with new software and there are developers worldwide releasing new applications all the time that make its features LIMITLESS ?

What about visual voicemail ?
is that available on SE and Nokia ?
As far as 3G is concerned the US networks are still far behind
and in congested areas in no faster than EDGE as speeds drops with the number of users on the broadcasting cell.
WI FI is the way to go, I remember when Apple FIRST introduced
USB and CD players on their laptops and people were complaining of this new useless standards !
no features eh ?
i work for europe's LARGEST mobile phone retailer and funnily enough - the only one that will be selling the i-phone. in reference to the comment about the length of time for insurance replacements - you're looking at about, say 15 minutes. the i-phone will be huge. admittedly not as huge as in the USA but it will be huge. it doesnt appeal to everyone, but come on - what phone does...???
I work for a large mobile phone retailer and have had access to 'promotion' iphones. I am blown away by its looks and quality of the touchscreen. But after a few weeks im not really dazzled anymore, but im definately very frustrated at its lack of features. Believe me this phone aint worth it. People are suckers for marketing. Virtually everyone who buys it will insure it....with the huge demand and smallish supply (Apple care far more about USA supply) how long do you think you will wait for a replacement? Ages. Looking forward to my K850i arriving, im actually excited about having 3g again. Best thing to do is get one and ebay it
hey dany, maybe you just cant afford one.. hahaha.. and i think i will nominate you for the noob of the year award..
1. 1 iphone box you can have Phone, ipod, internet

i just got the phone 2 days ago , but i cant find out a way to use photocall , do i need to download a special program for it ? anywone can help
Sony and Nokia shares very poor performers in the past few years .....
Gareth - You are wrong. Financial Times reports Apple has secured a deal that gives them 10% of the revenue from calls and data transfers.
This is the first time a phone vendor has secured a deal like this. Not for lack of trying from the other phone vendors ... SE and Nokia are going to ask for the same deal now.
check out the story at:
When they will release the last quarter sales results with a couple of million phones sold you will see where the shares end up.....
So tell me why the Apple shares keep on doubling every year and today they are at an all time high of $ 153.15.
This phone has taken off and is unstoppable
Market wrong and you are right dumb blond genius ?
To whomever replied to me regarding the dumb blonde comment of mine. Nokia and SE get paid EXPONENTIALLY more revenue than Apple ever will via this trully basic handset. It is a revolution in terms of the touch display; but only once this display gets utilised properly in a phone with decent features will this type of technology take off properly.
The phone can handle all of the items you say it doesn't have, just get the proper applications for them, now or later, it is a programmable computer with OSX inside, just like when you get a new PC it may not have all of the software you need........
hi... this is the worse phone i ever had no mms no bluetooth transfer no video can't see sim directory i can give 100 out off 40 only for the looks and unique touch pad
This a F**** awesome Phone in the history, Nokia Samsung and Sony Ericsson are paaaaaaar away from it!! They even cant think like this!
Love you Apple(Iphone)!!!
When this phone comes to Bulgaria i immediately will replace my Nokia N72 with this phone !
This is new generation !!!
Of course you can it is a Mac with OS X inside:
