The phone promised to be the "bahemoth of all phones" (the way it was advertised) but in the end, it was more or less a much ado for nothing type of episode. Unlike UK / US, there is no 3G in South Asia :( Second, in UK / US, you don't have to fully front the bill, you can lock on w/a mobile operator and pay maybe 200 bucks or something....here, you have the operator lock, but you have to pay the FULL price for the iphone. That amounts to about 40k bucks, and for that price, I can get a decent AMD powered phenom PC or even a midrange laptop. And after paying full price for the phone, the operator lock still remains....the camera promises 2 megapixel, but it's only a VGA camera. I'd give this product maybe 4/10 in terms of value for money...
AS of today serious online trading available on the Iphone with Saxotrader world leader :
Hype phone for teenagers .......
And because once you get used to the Iphone it is impossible to go back to a stone age phone like Nokia, Motorola,Samsung etc.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2008Why then Apple sold more Iphones than Blackberries in the last Quarter ?Quite simply because the iPhone is beautiful, simple, and well-marketed.
It's like asking for every 1000 people, how many are capable of critical thinking.
Not many, not many at all. ;)
Andrew, 31 Oct 2008Can you get Hotmail as an push email?To get push Hotmail you have to upgrade to it to Premium, Hotmail push only works with Winmo 6 (it's a Microsoft thing, just as it only works with Outlook or Outlook Express email clients).
Gmail and Yahoo work fine, they give you a more fully featured email account for free.

Can anybody tell me how the battery life of the IPhone is and if its easy to text. I really am debating whether I should buy the phone because of the touch screen. I've heard negative comments towards the texting part. Help!
engineer, 31 Oct 2008Surprisingly in iphone you cannot FORWARD a message !
There are some Basic problems too !You call it "Basic problems" but there are no problems so far with the IPHONE I do not need to forward the texts and I do not see it as a problem.
You can buy a cheap cameraphone and forward your texts all day long if this makes you happy ...........

BlackBerry Bold User, 31 Oct 2008Why didn't you buy the BlackBerry Bold? I chose the BlackBerry Bold over this phone and I thin... moreThat must be why the US senate is switching from Blackberries to iPhones.
There is one thing RIM and Blackberry does better than anyone and that's email, except when Microsoft messes around with Exchange, which has caused some issues in the past.
OSX is easily the most powerful operating system ever put into a mobile device, Apple has always kept to proprietary hardware they will not change that particularly given their recent success.
Developers have only begun to scratch the surface as far as applications go.
"Developers of Documents to Go are now bringing Microsoft Office to the iPhone. They even put up a dedicated web page for the service’s imminent release. You gotta wonder though; since copying and pasting are important functions for the Office programs, does that mean the iPhone is expected to get them soon or are the developers of Documents to Go relying on a hack for copy and paste? Regardless, iPhone users can soon get Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on their fruit-flavored phones including support for 2007 versions."
Read life reality :
Technology pioneer Apple has posted a dramatic increase in profits after seeing sales soar over the past three months.
Announcing the company's results for the financial quarter ending in September, Apple said that it had seen sales of computers, mobile phones and iPods rise dramatically over the same period in 2007.
The company shipped more than 2.6m Mac computers, 11m iPods and almost 6.9m iPhones, leading to revenues of $7.9bn and profits of $1.14bn. That increase marks a profit increase of more than 26% over the same period last year.
"Apple just reported one of the best quarters in its history, with a spectacular performance by the iPhone – we sold more phones than [BlackBerry maker] Research In Motion," said Apple chief executive Steve Jobs.
