iphone has wifi + good ui + radio and hopefully transparent sync (why no one ever mentions back-up?) Odd that we spend more on mobiles than pcs.. 'the computer is the network...'

T-Mobile only done this as Vodafone were complaining (cause it was an exclusive) and took them to court. Why dont T-Mobile do the same when Vodafone want to keep all the nice handsets to themselves *cough*F700*cough* and countless others.

I tried to look this information up on the Apple, as well as the t-mobile euro website, but they say you need a 2-year contract. How reliable is this article?

For one thing, why such the high price tag for a phone?
i've seen and used both the iPhone and the HTC touch, and frankly i'd opt for the HTC touch when it comes to usability. no doubt, the iphone has a fantastic interface, but why would i want to spend such a 'ridiculous' amount for 1 phone which would cast me just as much as a customized laptop from alienware (to which may i add i'd be better of doin).
i'd say wait a couple of months, when T-Mobile & apple realize that their sales are dropping, they will eventually have to come to terms with reality and bring down the price to a more 'sensible' amount.

I do not think it says anywhere that you cannot remove the sim card. Unlocked means you can use it with any carrier that is GSM.

Finally. It's less than the contract fees AND the actual phone on the previous exclusive way to get it.
However, it is still far too expensive, not worth it considering the device's specifications aren't up with competitors in the same price range.

I have a question

the iTunes firmware updates brick the iPhones that have been unlocked by the buyers.

But now that there is a 100% legit unlocked iPhone you can buy, will the iTunes sourced firmware updates brick those phones?

It would be very naughty if Apple did.

I have never liked apple. Everyone knows how much trouble the Ipod was when it first came out, and how much trouble it still is now.
Then this abomination of a phone comes out and offers a stylish persona for whoever has one... Sure it looks ok, but thats pretty much it. Poor camera, no 3g... Technology is amazing today, so why is it that Apple have found it neccessary to take abackwards step...even if it saves some money on production costs.
And finally...1000 euros? Hah!

ridiculous price, but the phone is awesome, the touchscreen interface is like nothing else on the market, the camera produces good photos for a 2MP and the browser is amazing!
