its starting to get really annoying how thick people are on this forum. The SDK and third party apps will give you IM will give you MMS and text forwarding just wait till June.
The SDK will solve every single niggle people have about the iPhone and I mean everything there's not one thing you can say it wont solve software wise.
The only thing it cant do is make it 3G.
Starting to hate this phone. No camera flash, you can't forward txt message, you cant send mms no zoom on camera. You can't copy and paste. This is more of an ipod than phone. I want to switch with my blackberry.. This has no IM also. No games.
I dont know why people are whinging about battery life on the iPhone mine last for 3 days before I charge it up. Thats with Wi-Fi constantly on and with average of 1.5 hours of calls per day and some texting and web browsing, along with weather checking and google maps.
Also remember iPhone is about to go supernova on video games in June when the first apps from the SDK are officially released. The iPhone hardware is more powerful than both the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS. So iPhone will produce better graphics than anything you can get on a Sony PSP. In addition you get axis movement sensors like PS3 gamepad due to the accelerometer.
With the SDK you'll be able to download 3rd party apps which will give you video capture and MMS messaging and GPS. So the only thing haters can say now is it has no 3G which amounts to 4 seconds of quicker loading if u manage to get 3G coverage in the first place.
To those saying without the touchscreen its nothing, If the touchscreen isn't a big deal why is every company coping it? If the iPhone isnt revolutionary why is Windows Mobile 7 an exact copy/rip off of the interface and gestures used on iPhone.
As with all Apple items ....... it works great. As with all apple items don't ask it to do any thing extra. Blue tooth 2.0 ??? Only works for phone calls!!! No GPS!!! Great display. Won't do flash?????.... All in all great if you want a toy!!!! Not really a PDA..... more of a phone, with mp3 player. I wouldn't buy another one, stick with a PPC device.

If the Iphone had
3g, EDGE , HSPDA ,GPS , GPRS
Handwriting recogonition , voice recoginition,
5 mp camera that can double up as a scanner with optical character recogonition
A small projector (that can double up as a torch) and satellite connectivity ... and one sturdy system that will not die in rain / shallow water .....WOW
its so funny you can always tell who the broke A$$ES are on this page! They are always the ones who talk such rediculous smack about this phone. They think because they read a couple of reviews they know what its all about. All the Iphone owners. know what I'm talking about. Nobody who actually used this phone would have such negative things to say about it. Broke people are such haters because they are so frustrated!
listen i have an iphoNe,m its a great phone. u dont knw nthinG if u slag it off! ever1 i knw loves it. BEST PHNE MADE YET!
Yes, I agree. Without 3G, a better battery (I guess that's one reason why they are avoiding 3G, with a battery that can only provide 250 hours even without it) and, say, 5 Mp camera it has weak spots that will make me wait. The p990 gives me 3G, 400 hours and 3 Mp camera and that is still not satisfactory to start with. For now, there is no phone that fits my needs out there. The iPhone is promising. Jobs, get your hands on it again and make it right!
By the way i made the post below and i really need you guys to convince me why i should or should not buy the iphone. I dont have 3g where i roam around, all i have is wifi.
If you have time, please mail me to convince me either way. this thing has been eating me from the inside ever since the start of the year -_-
Well, seriously its just an itouch which can call and send sms. ive had 3 i touches now (i buy and sell gadgets a lot for no reason). Ive had the latest in Nokia, the N82. It was an awesome phone but for some reason i think the iphone has superior user interface. Then comes the camera issue. im not a professional photographer, 2mp is enough for my daily needs.
im still confused if it can take vids or not. One thing i HATE about the iphone is the lack of GPS but it makes up on it by the bubbly user interface..lol
now that i need a new phone again, what do i go for, something technically advanced with gps and superior camera, or something which makes me smile?
Dont get me wrong, i HATE apple's computer line, the macs and all the other ghey stuff but i love this gadget for being different and actually easy to use.
so for 500 i can get an iphone, for 500 i can get a kickass Nokia with better camera AND a GPS.....GAH...ive 'almost' bought the iphone twice but always back out in the end thinking its not worth it, its driving me crazy. and if it was a crap product i would never think of getting it twice after backing out the first time.....there is something irresistible about it ;)
