This phone makes me physicaly sick. The software is rubbish, the screen is unresponsive, the memory is rubbish the camera is awful. If you want a good phone for a quarter of the price go for a nokia 1208. its reliable and has loads of features that this phone has not got. please respond accordingly. xxxx the i phone hater
lotta things are missing in this phone, no video call, no MMS, the camera sucks,no flash..why would anyone upgrade to a phone that is less options...yeah it's a cute toy , but helllllo we need more over here..apple you better upgrade this thing
No MMS, hsdpa, video calling granted the Safari browser is brilliant, beware Skyfire, not a apple hater, but they need to learn that hype doesnt build a brand, quality, features and consumer confidence still nt convinced ill stick to the i-touch APPLE
does the i phone need to go to america to get fixed if anything goes wrong? and how long does it take to get the phone back?

No thats included the price so not only the iphone but also the allowances make the price. You never can say that the iphone is 700 £ it is wrong

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Despite what you may think the iPhone is pretty cheap. The data usuage charges are reasonable when you think about how much internet usuage can add up to. When Xperia comes out it will definetly be more expensive than the iPhone, as is HTC Touch Pro
daniel, 14 Aug 2008Hi Pepsi sorry i no that but ill tell you why i asked the question ok i have a N95 on a con... moreNo, it will work with any Vodafone sim, not only the one your GF got. Problem is though is you have no data allowance so how will you surf the internet? iPhone is completely useless without internet access. This is why iPhone isn't available outright. If you are on a contract already you will find it's really expensive to use the net
I have been lucky enough to use some top spec phones recently Including N95, N82 W89i, K850i, Samsung Soul and Secret - All 5 Star rating in my view. I am now using the iphone3G and WOW! I am not usually impressed and easily get bored with any phone but the sheer adaptability of applications and world class user interface & display are unrivalled. Other phones do indeed chip the armour of the iphone in specific areas as we all know but taken as a whole I think this is probably the best phone/entertainment/communication/business device
in the world! I just can't put it down and for a phone weary guy like myself that says alot! My advise - GET ONE! Its only a contract term away to your next phone. So that way at least you can all say "at least I've tried and tested the phone that has become a modern icon in technology! Go for it!
listen, if u dont want it - dont buy it simple! we don't really care. we dont know you and you dont know us. i had the samsung f480 and now the iphone 3g, i switched because i got the opportunity to play with the iphone for a couple of hours. the user interface is uncomparable so please stop bothering us all! if u dont want 1 dont buy 1, i dont think apple will really miss u anyway! i guess there will always be negative people about everything, either way from my experience the phone is amazing and it definatly cant be judged until you use it for an extended time - and the more you use this phone the more you really learn to appreciate it
ALEX, 14 Aug 2008i'm an owner of a iphone and a n958gb. love them both! peace.i have iphone 3G, htc X7510, N958G and nokia arte.. I like all of them with same degree because each one suits to my specific need depending where I go..
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2008nokia will build a touch screen for their cell phones. I am sure of it.Till then Nokia is loosing out in sales because HTC, Samsung and Apple have hit the iron rod when is hot.
Sure they will make one and probably even better but most people will be already tied down to their new phone contract and Nokia has to wait or depend on new buyers.
I have to say Iphone 3G has set the mark for all other brands to follow. They are better or worse than the iphone.
SHANAKA @LK, 14 Aug 2008Really great design. and the best touch in the world.(using iphone) as i think we can't compar... moreUnfortunately is not. the $199 price is bundled with a contract probably over 2 years period. So your contract you may need to pay a limit per month.
I am having the iphone 3G in Australia and I pay about $900+ all up including the contract for 1 year. The longer your contract or more perks you add, the cheaper or even free the phone.
For people who havent got one and really considering this phone, first off what are you looking for?
If your focus is on PDA, then blackberry may still be better
If you want whole she bang like bluetooth transfers than N96 I wont bother with N95
If you wanted touch screen, nice web browsing, the iphone is certainly great.
However if you are really PC user you can check out HTC Diamond Touch, or Samsung Onmia, the samsung looks great IMO but it has its own issues. However please look at their features wise and ensure is what you need.
No point arguing the iphone cant do this and that just because you thought is cool. Is a great phone but has its limitations.
ALEX, 14 Aug 2008i'm an owner of a iphone and a n958gb. love them both! peace.At least someone is talking sense.
Seriously they have their own ups and downs. I cant say how much I did like what N95 has but I wish it was like the iphone 3G vice versa. iphone 3G just has some features that needs to be add on.
Thinking of buying an iphone 3g for the us but i need to know if it works in other countries.. i live in Lebanon we use the standard GSM sim-card.. so any ideas???
guyver3, 14 Aug 2008Again Nokia...even Samsung....are far more advanced when it comes to phones. Nokia and Samsung... moreI don't think you know what you're talking about. Just because other phones has more features than the iPhone it does not mean that they're already ahead. They can't even match the iPhone's ui. Would a fully loaded Honda civic be a better car than a base model bmw? No. It's not just about the extra features. It's the performance that really counts. And the iPhone outperforms any phone out there.
