This is not an issue, no matter how much lazy tech writers try to make it one.

Phone is an electrical device after all and faults are destined for some of em, that doesn't stop us buying em. My toaster goes wrong every once a while but i don't stop buying em.

I've got to admit it, is a fast phone and really nice, but unfortunately lacks this:

1 MMS & (MMS custom ringtones)
2 Camera Settings & Flash (shutter key)
3 Themes or Skins
3 Multi task while Calling
4 Video Call
5 Birthday Reminder or Anniversaries
6 Battery Improvement it overheats too much
7 Cant believe ppl pay 4 apps who r free on SE & Nokia


after that it's a good phone nice and clear touch screen really realiable compare to latest touch screen phones, so there you have it.

Can't Wait 4 u Idou

is there a way of playing DivX/Xvid on these phones plus sending files by bluetooth?
perhaps through jailbreaking

You think that we are goimg to belive you that you bought the iPhone and when it turned out faulty you did not except a free swap for qa new one?! You must have sad - No thanks, I don`t want a new unit, I wll rather keep my faulty one and complain about it.

You are just making this up to bash the iPhone.

I have an iPhone 2G and used it for more than a year and my husband just bought an iPhone 3GS. Both are now with firmware 3.0. It's true that the 3gs is faster but that don't mean that the 2G is slow. Well seeing no great difference I bought the Palm Pre... The pre is just superb and so slick... I never thought i would drop my iphone for another phone but when you start using the pre with it's superb Web OS well the iphone looks like missing many things... The Pre just rocks and would surely makes you forget iphone...

I picked up the 3gs on monday. Was excited cos i was really looking forward to owning a phone like this. I put it to charge on wednesday and it went dead after a while. Not sure what was wrong. The phone was pretty warm after about an hour of charging. I called the store and complained since i paid so much for it. The day i went back, and the guy in the store tested it, it switched on perfectly. I had no proof that it went dead from a possible overheating. I referred him to articles on the web stating that this was a problem on some of the phones. He eventually offered to swap it out with a new unit but i didnt accept it. I thought that i would rather do some research on some me the other phones and get one of them. At the moment i have my eye on the omnia hd, htc touch pro 2 or n97. I am dissapointed because i saved up a long time for the phone. Although i still like it, i cant risk so much money on something that may be defective.
