to the guys who are complaining and posting negative comments,
first: its not costly when you factor in the cheaper monthly bill you need to pay for the 2yrs,
second: use it for at least a week or two before commenting about its features or UI,
third: buy a phone that fits your needs, if you need a phone that does GPS,3G,etc etc then buy a phone that does that and is more bulky and smaller screen than the iphone. also if u need a good browser & email solution choose between a blackberry with small keyboard and screens or an iphone.
lastly, most of the problems (3rd party apps, copy/paste,video recording,etc) are issues but they are easily fixable through a software update, so just wait till these are fixed in month or two before making a decision.
iphone has a market for itself, where people see the true cost of the phone+contract and want to get a better user experience from their phones. its not for everybody, but it is already changing what is being offered by the other phone companies, so we are all going to benefit from this. also dont forget, its much much easier to upgrade the software on the iphone, so maybe more people will like the phone when apple updates the OS on the phone.
amazing phone, great software inbuilt. screen is awesome, huge and very good quality. finger smudges cannot be seen at all when screen is on, very scratch resistant. touch sensitivity is also very good, but bare skin contact is not needed unless u r wearing thick gloves. decent camera quality, no video recording options. very good browser and ipod features, few crashes but none serious enough, the phone just drops back to the home screen and when the application is reloaded it just resumes from where we left off, eg the browser remembers all the tabs that were open (yes the browser has tabs!!). the iPhone unlike windows mobile phones does not need to be restarted when applications crash. I love mine, even though it has some very minor issues like no copy/paste or 3rd party apps, but the iphone is built to be upgraded very easily through itunes, which i can never say about the upgrade experience with other commonly used "smart phones".
Again and again..People who still want buy this phone, no problem, get it, but keep the box for Return before 14 days..This is My recommendation..
Save yourselves a favor, and please do not patronize this globalized, commerciliazed, ostracized piece of trash. I have owned numerous mobiles and mp3 players, and by far, this one I purchased a few weeks ago is rubbish to the ass. I have seriously not been as dissapointed my whole life as this. This product claims to be the bastard-son of the heir of the apple iPOD generation...but for God's sakes, what new function does this bring but deterioration. I'm sorry to say, but I would seriously rather get a phone/mp3 player from the following brands: Bird, Qtek, VK Mobile, Pantech, Haier, Genesis, BTX, Systemo, or even the fake yPOD phone made in the Chinese city of Guangzheng...
Can not load navigation software.
Can not connect GPS.
Can not load different ring tones.
Great Size and screen... but not really very usable with any other programs as all written for symbain or windows...
SPEED and unknown or big secrete?
Desent price but really aint getting much compared to dopod or atom o2 life...
Pity did expect more from Apple...
Is there anyone who has issue with the sound or the speakerhone? I already maximize the volume setting to highest level but the sound is still low compare to other phone that I used. Thanks
Iphone is trying so hard to put so much into one handset which is great! user friendly and looks are fair. But the problem is, there are so many common phone features missing. With all the new cool design with that came out; GPS, full browser, nice video player, etc... but without the basics which makes the iphone somewhat like having new hummer truck that on 4 spare tires. Its too big as a ipod, too small to be UMPC and lost of basic features of a cell phone, what is it?
Does anyone knows how to set the incoming text message from displaying on the screen. I don't want the incoming text to display on my screen. Thank you.
Apple iphone has its plusses, but with phones such as SE W960 round da corner, it's another ordinary device. Maybe a bit betr options, such as a 3.2 mp cam with autofocus n manual options, video recording, better support for ringtones wud av given this phone sum respect. Its a bit too basic, bit too late.
The Apple is true to it's name....Like an apple away keeps the doctor away, an Apple iphone keeps complicated and bulky computers away and has a phone to it.
I heard you can know where people are when u put thier number in. I dont belive it, so if anyone knows could you please tell me.
people, open your eyes. there are lot of better phones than this expensive and overhypen phone. this is just marketing.
iphone sux dude. mostly because it's proprietary OS.
I made a tour trought iphone´s home page and definitively has an exceptional user interface, but a long list of drawbacks as well. I was expecting this phone from last year and now i realize that is just not for me. I can´t understand why such a powerful device cannot edit office documents, any symbian S60 3rd edition can do it. I´m VERY DISSAPOINTED
Let's me tell you S.th iphone in S.E asia 80% of people they like Loud speaker Phone and simcard phone especaily in Cambodia . I met a few people that they're using vertu phones you know the price of vertu yeal? and i never see anyone have it in singapore and they said they don't like iphone like what i said above.
