The Iphone is a very clever design. But Apple have made two bad mistakes.
1) Poor compatibility with most bluetooth devices. A deliberate ploy to get you to use itunes I beleive.
2) Cant' switch off the predictive text.
Most SMS's are just informal chats or communication. So there is no need for predictive text. Abbreviations are sometimes useful, but completely throw the predictive text. As does a shortened phrase such as cu4t.
I can't believe they've given no option to turn it off !
Every other phone company knows half the people (that's millions of users) don't want it so they have the sense to give people the choice !
Very annoying & spoils an otherwise good phone.
r, 29 Aug 2008both n95 classic and n95 8 gig have exactly similar batteries. So the battery life depends on ... moreunfortunately no, the n95 and n95 8gb do not have the same batteries. you can see it on GSMarena itself
n95 has a 950 mAh battery, n95 8gb has a 1200 mAh battery. thats why they got rid of the camera lens on the n95 8gb, to accomodate the bigger battery.
you should own both phones before making comments.
this proves that many comments here are from people who never owned the phones they are talking about

i love this phone i hope i have one soon i dont use camera i already have good one i love the 3.5 inch with 16m c any way i think it must be ur secondry phone and this will be ur ipod internet phone ....????
Ijust read on the net theres a new ipoo coming in december dont buy the 3g wait . its worth it .
just bought this phone a couple of weeks ago and have to admit that I like it,which is weird according to my friends because I've been with nokia so long. Bottom line nokia makes the best phones period, from what I see, however, if the iPhone had java or flash it would out perform the nokia phones,even without Bluetooth. Until then all phones is personel preference. Long live the n96!!!!!!!
As i have said before, soldering the battery to the phone is a stupid idea. Once it's dead you can't put in a fully charged battery. A co worker of mine has this phone and he said to me when the phone freezes he can't even shut it off and he can't even take out the battery and pop it back in because it's soldered. He also said if someone calls him he can hear it ringing but can't answer it and his call display won't work!
yah your right dude...! its actually the N98.. aaawww....!
i love how people keep crying about how they don't like it...ur stupid to buy it if u didn't know all the specs and such
i run 3 businesses, using all iPhone's now. Can't be better i tell u. Switched from blackberry and am not looking back :D
If u look the pricing of ipods in India and compare it with those in the US, there is not much price difference. eg. iPod shuffle costs $74 = 3250 in the USA (from apple.com) including taxes and shipping charges and in India it costs 3750. So I do not understand what special taxing is being done by the govt. in India that will increase a $199 phone to $700. This is a very old apple trick. They launched the iphone at $500 in the USA, and got the rich and famous to buy it and then slashed the prices once they got the money of the riches. Then by slashing the price they targeted the not-so-rich (the bigger market) and then compensated the ones who paid more by giving them Apple gift vouchers so that they buy something else again from apple for that amount by spending more money in buying something that they don’t even need.
I expect in India in the next six months, the prices will be slashed along with some bundled plans with Airtel or Vodafone (Postpaid plans with monthly rental of at least 1000) with 2 year-3 year contract. They will ensure u go for ECS or post-dates cheques to ensure u don’t cancel it later. This will happen eventually and then more people will buy and apple continues to be richer and richer… and then will come APPLE 3G V2.0 with stereo bluetooth support, video recording, copy/paste, 3.2-5 mp camera, sms forwarding and MMS and more that are currently missing…
Those features are missing because it was deliberate. I am founds 100s of users in USA who bought iphone 1st gen and then the 3g also when it cam out. Apple has left a lot of scope for improvement so that they get repeat buyers. If all the features are provided now, what will remain to improve that will appeal to the public to buy the new version… Think again.
Please note the following before buying:
1> Only 2 mp camera
2> No Autofocus and No Flash
3> No Bluetooth file transfer to other bluetooth devices
4> No support for Stereo bluetooth headset (A2DP is not supported)
5> No support for 3rd party applications
6> No Flash or Java supported by the browser
7> Internet 8GB/16GB HDD cannot be used as a HDD to store personal data
8> Song/Videos can be transferred to the phone only using iTunes and cannot be transferred back.
9> No Support for MMS
10> Does not support Instant messaging clients like yahoo messenger/ Google Talk!
11> Unable to Forward SMS
12> No Copy/Paste feature
13> No option of transferring contacts list from Phone to SimCard
14> Batteries are not user replaceable
15> No Video Recording
16> Very difficult to type SMS fast with the TouchScreen keypad
17> 3G Not in India at least till Oct-2009
18> No support for Memory Cards/External Storage
19> You are stuck with the Service Provider as the phone is locked for ever to the service provider from whom you buy.
20> A class action lawsuit already in USA for poor reception and connectivity where 3G already exists. By the time u get to try 3G in India, ur phone will already be out-of-warranty
21> Needs Activation thru iTunes everytime Sim Card is changed (of-course same service provider)
22> No memos
23> No Voice Dialing
24> No Video Output to TV (iPod has this feature)
25> Screen catches lot of fingerprint - Needs wiping before u watch a movie
16> GPS Maps will only show ur location and will not provide you turn by turn navgation to an area.
I have a 6000 rupees Nokia which can do all of this. Do u still want iPhone?
It's a great phone if your uses are limited to basic calling and Ipod features.
It's inadequate if you need repeat itineraries, like inspections, meetings, hearings, etc. that need to be posted on the fly since it doesn't have copy/paste functions. Nor is it good if you need to forward quick mms pics for site evaluations (emailing attachments is really a suck if you have to do that regularly).
So it is useful depending on your needs. At the moment, it doesn't meet my needs since IT IS NOT A BUSINESS PHONE. Nokia and Samsung are far better business phones right now.
They have banned the 3g i-phone advert in uk because its internet experiance is not true because it des not support all features for a true web browsing ie flsh,,jave
i am using i phone this phone is nightmarrrrrrrrrrrrrre if you think iphone is best in a market i did't think so its a hell if you have apps in your phone lot of times it don't work once it hang then ipod don't work way to fix you have to restore iphone and it take forever think about it before you buy exept this lot of another problem ........................................................................................think .................about
