To all you people saying this phone lacks features, is a stone age phone etc... you have no idea what you are on about. This phone has incredible MP3 best on the market, the user interface is the most advanced by far, the touch is most advanced. This isnt a camera its a multimedia phone. Web browsing is its main attraction along with its use of multimedia such as videos and music. There is no phone as technologically advanced as this. Wonderful phone
if u go to this site, it states there is bluetooth???
i still rekon this is more of a ipod with additional features; dont really see it as a phone but going for $199; i think thats a farely reasonable price with some lack of features though it would be better with a better camera, mms, flash, video recording, IM and a front camera. But cant complain much with such a good going price.
People say this phone is cheaper. But is it really. It comes locked and can only be purchased at AT&T stores with activation, for 2 years.
It includes a voice plan ($30) and a data plan ($30).
$60 each month X 24 months = $1440
$1440 + $200 (cheapest iphone 3g) = $1640.
This phone is more expensive than the previous version and than the ipod touch.
Open your eyes and DON'T BE FOOLED by apple's MARKETING STRATEGY. You end up paying a lot more.
come on apple, i was looking forward to putting my n95 into retiremeant with ur lastest offering. Il wait until next year, it needs AT LEAST a 3.2 megapixel camera, a front camera for video calls and a 32gb capacity wouldnt be bad. Overall this ones great, great price great improvement but il hold on for another year with my n95.
come on man... is a 199$ phone with GPS and 3G and revolutionary touchscreen. forget about 5 megepizels camera becouse a camera is nat bassed only in a lot of megapixels.
good work apple! love this phone my opinion is that you dont need blue tooth or mms or a better camera then 2mp too bad theres no video call camera but othervise it rocks
MMS? I didn't see it listed under the messaging specifications. Gotta have my MMS!
glad it finally has 3g and GPS , but still the same old 2mp cam widout video & no bluetooth file transfer ... but wid a price tag of $199 for the 8gb model , i'm not complaining :)
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008if you need to shot something seriously then grab a digital camera,do not blame the phone.Ahhh but everyone IS blaming the phone, my friend. How can apple announce a brand new phone like this?
It does NOT have full 3G support. The camera is a piece of crap. It is only 2MP and and DOESN'T record video. Why should consumer and the other faithful followers of Apple put up with a second-rate phone who's only gimmick and selling point is some fancy touch screen?
How can it to be call a 3G phone without the videocall function? Still 2mp camera without flash? Should be 3.2mp or better than that. Bluetooth not fully function.. Gosh..!! and last NO MMS..!!
Too bad there's no iPhone here in the Philippines.. I heard the Int'l news, and they're selling this for only $199.. Well you get more what you pay for!! I'm jealous!
Does it still locked on bluetooth just with Apple Products?
and can i Forward PreExisting Message?or i have to rewrite it again?
well, Everyone says that iphone 3g don't have frontal camera to do video calls... LOL, How many people do video calls??? This is a great phone with the most important features well developed for the present day...
Why doesn't this phone have bluetooth 2.1? The AirMac has it... 2.1 has been out since October of last year, why are phone makers taking to long to make 2.1 phones???
How many of you still do not realise this:
THE $199/$299 PRICE IS IF YOU BUY IT ON CONTRACT WITH AT&T. IT SAYS SO ON THE APPLE WEBSITE.
If you want to buy the iphone unlocked it will cost WAY more than $299.
