I was poppin' bottles with my buddy a couple days ago and he got some on my iPhone. I dried it off and it still worked!!! I love this phone but the service sucks my left nut.
SE-X1 c0uld SERI0USLY be my next ph0ne!!! that thangs' l00kin H0T right n0w!!!
I bought my I- phone a week ago. And sold it today.
It has gr8 features such as ipod
amazin tft touch screen and many many more installers.
If so than why did I sell it.
Well it doesn`t work with the 3g sim card. Once installed u just cant make phonecalls. NEW SIM CARDS that r being provided by orange - France just refuse 2 work with it.
Than even with the old sim it takes ages 2 connect 2 the internet with the EDGE in europe. Than it has great problems with switching between the networks once u go abroad.
I am aware that most of the americans dont travel outside america but us europeans actually do.
I must say that it was a big disapointment
Time to weigh in as an iPhone owner now instead of just a fan-boy.
I have used many phones over the past few years - some subsidized, some not. Most have been small, flip phones (Razr, Razr V31, Sync, Nokia 6131, 6290) and not PDA type phones. I find the iPhone's largest jump between it and these type of phones to be its UI. It works and has plenty of nifty features inside it that help it be a consistent experience.
The web browser, network connection, email and IM are all very well done (the home screen notifies you when you have new messages and how many) and the size of the screen actually lets you use it as a web/email browser without tearing you hair out.
It isn't perfect though. Apple could stand to update several areas that aren't picture-perfect. The call log list, though nicely readable (red highlights missed calls) needs a deliniation between incoming and outgoing calls. Also, getting info on a contact doesn't allow editing, or a quick jump to the actual contact. On the iPod side of things, the iPhone will fade out a song to alert you to a call, then take you right back to the beat you left off at (very Apple-like-cool), but doesn't do the same for videos, instead taking you back to the video list.
I am rating it as a solid 8 and I am not done playing with it. I would love things like voice-dial, GPS recevier (location pinning only gets close, not quite close enough), and updated Bluetooth handling, but for me they aren't deal-breakers.
Final word - don't just hate something because it's made by a company you have an issue with. I was pretty close to getting a Tilt, but the pricing (non-subsidized at this point on my contract) kept me away.
the on screen keyboard is virtually impossible to use for those with fingers
hahahah bluetooth only for headset such a stupid idea"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hi Iv got question about the speakers ,is sound is stereeeeoooo?????
my phone just mono
Sorry it wasnt a patent filing but a trademark filing, but still exciting :P
iPhone 2 will not be out until much later this year. The 16gb model upgrade will hold sales until its ready.
Most likely iPhone 3g will be out at the earliest June in America and around Christmas again for Europe.
But AT&T have already slipped up and said iPhone 3G will be out in 2008 for definate.
What's more exciting is recent news that Apple have filed patents for gaming devices, both handheld and console form! Apple Pippin take 2! lol
Really hope they make a games console to take on xbox 360. I can see it now Apple iGame!! Lol
The price is justified in my opinion. For what you are getting its relatively cheap. Not long ago iPods cost £300 for just single MP3 function and nothing else.
Also take into account because you are paying for the phone outright, it is not classed as a subsidized phone. This means you can change your tariff once a month instead of having to wait every 3-6 months.
Most importantly it means when iphone 3G comes out you can purchase that no matter what stage your tariff is at, i.e there is no need to wait until the end of your 18 month contract in order to buy it like most phone contracts. I have only had my iPhone for 2 months but if iPhone 3g came out tomorrow I could buy it and register it to my current number and carry on as usual without having to increase my 18 month contract or take out a new one.
now what do u say abt Nokia n96 which is equipped with 16 gb mem, 5mpx camera, gps, fm radio, secondary camera, wifi and what not.
Iphone is a very nice phone so those who are complaining about it back off and get another model instead of coming on here every 2 seconds trying to put the iphone down because I know deep down your wanting one but it's too expensive.
Anyway the positives of the iphone, 16gb, best sound on any mobile, best internet browser, slick i could keep going on for ages, big fan of apple keep up the good work and people seem to forget they have only been in the mobile phone industry about 2 years now and sony ericsson and nokia have been around for about 50 years and still havn't come accross anything new and exciting for ages now.
dude, STFU!!! if apple ddnt REV0LUTI0NIZE the m0bile ph0ne market wit der HUGE "t0uchscreen" success(u knw wut im talkin abt) SE pr0bably W0ULD N0T have c0me up wit the SEX1.
get ur facts str8, h0mes!
Apple, your first warning shot is from SE. Beware of Xperia X1. 3G all over the world and real arc-like QWERTY that doesnt smudge your touchscreen everytime. Even if a 3G iPhone is released, u r still in trouble. Go back marketing mp3 players. Only market that made u mainstream. Let the seasoned vets take it from here.
