i use 3g everyday, id hate not having it. it would suck.
with 3G i can check how my beloved charlton athletic are doing on the BBC sport website in seconds!
who really needs 3G seriously, ppl have it and hardly use it, also 2Mp is too good already on iphone display (compare to my friend's 5Mp N82 tiny screen), big pixels only needed for printing, if not, why bother?
No, my dear it has GPRS.its cool to use internet n music:)but i dont like this phone.
how can u cal this a multimedia phone with No games and i would take the the n96
this phone is already feling old
in onstaler,the packages that come from untrusted sources,are they really unsafe,which of them are safe to install?
and woud you tell me how I can record sound and videos?
r u a new user of this fone? the shortcomings u mentioned in ur post do not exist now. all of those have been eliminated by the introduction of softwares. i am just mentioning one, the camera. install "snapture" and get all whatever u want. this software is even better than any other camera software of any modern fone. try it.
i love this phone but i agree there is shortcomings and there will most likely be another much better iphone in the pipeline.
pro: memory, styling, predictive text is unrivalled on qwerty keyboard, ease of use, speed of software [no lag ever] interphase with computer is also very good, battery life for a multimedia phone is excellent.
camera, no video record, no zoom, no picture messaging, inability to save individual texts, just conversations [this is a plus however, very MSN messenger, useful for text convo's] bluetooth compatibility with other phones.
if you want a camera phone then this is obviously not for you but i wanted a stylish phone, with room for my songs, pictures, good calendar / pc sync features, very easy to use and thats what i got, can fully reccomend this phone to anyone.
have u gone thru the user manual of this device? download it and pls read.
however, have u downloaded itunes for winxp and installed? if not, pls do it. once done and connected ur fone, ur pc will auto sync the fone. and for softwares, connect ur fone thru wi-fi or ur service provider with internet. u will be prompted to all the actionc.
u r wrong my fren MMS input can be done and all appts can be done..i'm a technician of iphone...unlocked and input appts... MMS,zoom in cam,sim port,email.. and etc...check it out at my shop..LUCKY PLAZA B1-63..tommy here..
you want at&t to use the iphone?? or it is ok to use with nothing?
iPhone is new standard in hand held mobile devices. Debate why its priced so highly? Well simply because its an iPod Touch coupled with a mobile device. Lets not compare it with other windows or symbian based handets out there - its a new definition to what mobile devices can be in future. Stuff like motion sensor, proximity sensor or multi touch never existed. I think apple would definately charge a premium for this. Its a basic smartphone (not business phone) - of course it leaves you with a lot to be desired. I am using it in India (New Delhi) - bought mine from California (399$ + 30$ VAT) - works out to be 17k INR where as an 8GB ipod touch costs 17.5k INR @ iStores. So I feel the price was not exorbitantly high!
What I love about it:
- Multi Touch
- Built Quality (Screen feel solid) Better than most HTC or Dopod handsets
- Excellent 16M bright display
- Amazing UI and graphics, Does not jerk or hang
- Fast processor
- Ipod (Videos and music) Awesome sound quality
- Battery Life - Lasting me over 2 days when most windows mobile don't even last a day (I used O2 Atom Exec previously)
What I hate:
- Bluetooth cant transfer files
- Ringtones need to be purchased from iTunes
- No Search on Contacts
- No SMS forwarding
- Call Timers (Doesnt track or display time of call)
- No Delivery Reports on SMS
- No 3G (no needed in India though)
Is it over rated?
I think not. A lot of innovations in this phone are worth a mention and I think companies like Sony are watching. With the launch of Xperia X1 - Sony made it clear that they learnt a few tricks from apple iphone
Should I buy it?
Well I won't suggest you to sell off you old trust worthy Nokia. (I still have my Nokia E61i - just in case). But the experience of using this wonderful device is definitely worth it. This phone has set the benchmark higher for all other companies.
I'm quite happy with my iPhone - despite the shortfalls. The pleasure of using it is greater that the pain of missing essential features. Besides softwares out there would fix most of the basic issues in iPhone.
I also have a similar problem...
I can't sync it with my PC regardels of what I do...
Pocket PC that I had before (HP hx4700) was much better. :)
I think that I will return the iphone and get an ordinary phone and get my belowed ppc back to servicer. :)
i bought this iphone but in xp window couldn't use it and couldn't install any program in my iphone, it is waste money to buy like this mobile
The iphone is not for all. Its a matter of horses for course. If you like me just that uses the ipod, WiFi, internet browesr, ipod video alot & not worried about the camera or videocalling then the iphone does the work.
hey man andrew here i brought iphone frm my frnd and now itz showing me iphone is disabled and connect to itunes and now i can only make a call or can recieve a call..... thats all....
and when i tryed to connect with itunes itz showing me "ur iphone is locked and enter a password on ur iphone to unlock it and to connect it with itunes....
so plz help me dear
Thanxz in advanced
just like dragon heart comment, i am a user of iphone and its just plain basic phone/sms and itouch. nothing fancy. since i use itouch a lot, and coupling with basic phone/sms, i am ok with it.
no point in buying this phone now, unless you really need to (which i doubt, its ONLY a phone).
Apple are bringing out a new one in a month's time at WWDC so you'd be better off waiting for that one.
Stores in the UK have sent out internal messages to all employees saying that this version of the iPhone has reached the end of it's shelf life and that once the last few are sold off they wont be re-stocking.
