Because the small percentage of us are computer geeks, enthusiasts, engineers who know technology like the back of their finger. I've worked in enterprise with microsoft, cisco, apple networking. Their closed & limited hard soft architecture. Even debugging or troubleshooting an apple product becomes an exhaustive, unfriendly unhelpful annoyance. Immature architecture & software gives jobs the ability to be a leading control factor in dictating what users can & can't do with the hardware & soft platform. You end up needing special compiled apps that have to be written in apples weak inferior coding. When you get errors in the os the technically adept person like myself wants the open freedom of being presented with useful debugging code or an ability to fix the fault theirselves.
Posted this already but had to say it here. I can't vouche for the rest of the world, but I love when people come at the video conferencing portion of the iPhone 4 and bash it. It's true that many phones have forward facing cameras and capable of doing video conferencing. But here in the US I would really like someone, and I'm being serious and not sarcastic, to list for me all the US released mobile phones and/or US mobile phone companies that offer any kind of video conferencing for everyday use now. Thats why I love to hear the "oh, apple is just bringing out old technology thats already been here" speeches. Well God d*mn it, it's about time someone put that old technology to everyday capability around here. Enjoy hating, but please folks... hate responsibly :).

Bunyip, 10 Jun 2010My current iPhone sim (Telstra) is regular. How do I change to micro sim?Come to a Vodafone store and I'll fix you up with one of the one's we use in iPads, of course you'll have to leave Telstra for a better company.
I love looking at the comments there is so much hate in them. Could I for one moment say that it’s just a phone? As an android user I am very much looking forward to the review of the phone. Apple makes one phone and they make it well. Android has loads of Handsets but here goes there is not one that matches the build quality of this phone the materials are top-notch. It doesn’t matter that they have loads of things missing and that they are playing catch up with other brands. Because the word Apple is printed on it, it is going to sell.
Apple are closed which is good and bad. But there OS wipes out Android they way everything looks is professional.
For Android to truly be in the race they will have to up the build quality of there phones. The amount of times I have taken the back of my HTC Desire to remove the battery because it wont shut down when it freezes is a joke. I am on my third handset this one works but with the above problems.
The market really needs to up its game it looks ok but there is so much junk on there and half don’t even work there is no room for a 1 star App there just shouldn’t exist. Which is part reason why Apple are closed and there apps work when you use them.
I love Android but I believe in the coming years its going to have to start making choices if you development and people to start programming great apps open source will not be the way forward. Also more time has to be spent on customer service and also build quality of the phone and also testing the phone. All these different version are just confusing there needs to be a standard Android does need to learn from Microsoft and Apple.
On the plus I think Android is a very exciting piece of software it just needs to sharpen up.
We all know that Apple are going to sell millions of these phones maybe the debate shouldn’t be what you think this phone lacks but more why have Apple again been able to outsell everyone with one handset. There has to be a reason why 50 million and counting have it in there hand.

Kwik, 09 Jun 2010THIS IS AWEFUL! ONLY MICROSIM!? WHAT IS APPLE THINKING!? We dont have Microsims where I live, ... moreits working with the latest and andvanced technology i have booked iphone4 last year
face time app only works on wifi & only iphone4g to iphone4g, not 3g.
no more unlimited data on at&t.
200mb=$15 per month
2gb=$25 pre month
when you upgrade you will have to take these data plans.
Best new i have heard is the Iphone 4 going to be on the 3 network in the UK happy days. Now we will have real 3g speed internet on this phone
Who cares about AMOLED when the phone screen is so awesome ?! Such smooth lines in text,pics etc. Who gives 2 flying sh*ts about that ? The important thing is how does it look in your hand, not "yeapyyy my phone has amoled screen awesome!"
nicksti, 10 Jun 2010A regular sim can be easily cut into a Micro sim since the metal contact is identical. Here... moreEarly termination fee only $325 start from June 1, 2010. Whoever have contract with AT&T before June 1. Termination fee will be $150
You know it will be cool if the iphone 4 has a functioning iphone messenger this way it outrides the blackberry. Cuz all the Blackberry people ever brag about is its messenger.

Making a micro SIM out of regular big SIM is just a piece of cake.
Just cut it carefully and there you go. Many tutorials are availabel on internet.
just to clarify the microsim will come with the handset in the box so you dont have to cust the sim card down to size thats just a stupid idea and also the sim card can be removed has the picture shows the sim tray is on the side of the handset and not on the top hope this clears things up
