new software 20.0.15 make's the n95 even that much better than i phone!
What is EDGE?
Further enhancements to GSM networks are provided by Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) technology. EDGE provides up to three times the data capacity of GPRS. Using EDGE, operators can handle three times more subscribers than GPRS; triple their data rate per subscriber, or add extra capacity to their voice communications. EDGE uses the same TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) frame structure, logic channel and 200kHz carrier bandwidth as today's GSM networks, which allows it to be overlaid directly onto an existing GSM network. For many existing GSM/GPRS networks, EDGE is a simple software-upgrade.
EDGE allows the delivery of advanced mobile services such as the downloading of video and music clips, full multimedia messaging, high-speed colour Internet access and e-mail on the move.
Due to the very small incremental cost of including EDGE capability in GSM network deployment, virtually all new GSM infrastructure deployments are also EDGE capable and nearly all new mid- to high-level GSM devices also include EDGE radio technology. The Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) states that, as of May 2007, there were 223 commercial GSM/EDGE networks in 113 countries, from a total of 287 mobile network operator commitments in 142 countries (source: www.gsacom.com).
EDGE means, let say you have ATT service, they offering Internet system which name is EDGE so that will work any where outside on the car and more..WIFI means, lets say you go mall, or some office, that kind of places has a Wireless internet, and your phone auto can find that wifi from wireless router, and can work with any one router and more fast..I can explain this too..If you have computer in your house, you can buy wireless router and your laptop will work without wire, so that is mean you connencted wifi...
Wi-Fi enabled device such as a PC, game console, cell phone, MP3 player or PDA can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The area covered by one or more interconnected access points is called a hotspot. Hotspots can cover as little as a single room with wireless-opaque walls or as much as many square miles covered by overlapping access points. Wi-Fi has been used to create a mesh networks, for example, in the City of London. Both architectures are used in community networks.
Wi-Fi also allows connectivity in peer-to-peer (wireless ad-hoc network) mode, which enables devices to connect directly with each other. This connectivity mode is useful in consumer electronics and gaming applications.
When the technology was first commercialized there were many problems because consumers could not be sure that products from different vendors would work together. The Wi-Fi Alliance began as a community to solve this issue so as to address the needs of the end user and allow the technology to mature. The Alliance created the branding Wi-Fi CERTIFIED to show consumers that products are interoperable with other products displaying the same branding.
Many consumer devices use Wi-Fi. Amongst others, personal computers can network to each other and connect to the Internet, mobile computers can connect to the Internet from any Wi-Fi hotspot, and digital cameras can transfer images wirelessly.
Can any one please tell me what Wi-Fi is??
And what the hell is EDGE? I know its gotta do something with internet. Can any one explain and tell me how to use it...
Thank you so much

I thought only the N95 was so successful to warrant a black market
for it ....
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has officially taken the title of the most powerful person in business, ranking no. 1 on Fortune's Power 25 list ahead of Media colossus Rupert Murdoch. "During the first two decades of his remarkable 30-year career, the Apple Inc. founder twice altered the direction of the computer industry," says Fortune. "In 1977 the Apple II kicked off the PC era, and the graphical user interface launched by Macintosh in 1984 has been aped by every other computer since." The executive's iconic iPod became the 600-pound gorilla of the digital music player business, and Apple's unique retail stores recently helped the company to report yet another record quarter.
ALL OF THIS WITHOUT BLUETOOTH FILE TRANFER.
the iphone can't search via bluetooth or transfer via bluetooth or music via bluetooth headphone's, only headset via bluetooth or talking in otherword's.
can anyone tell me why i couldn't use my iPhone bluetooth??
when I turn on my computer' blue soleil and my iPhone bluetooth, my iPhone couldn't find any bluetooth device...
Stupid phone no multimedia messaging whats the point of buying a camera phone if you cant send a multimedia on it its like having a car without gasoline
Amazing phone, got it one month ago, and was scared bout try the update, made a heavy search on google and tried it, and isnt bad as ppl think, it takes a bit of time to accomplish but u can unlock it at 1.1.2 and it's simple, that's my version now after following some guides what i found at google.
i read on here a guy from cyprus dropped his iphone once and it had to be repaired and it cost him money. I was going to buy the iphone but after reading that i have changed my mind.
Still NOT FOR SALE IN BELGIUM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i think iPhone is a great phone with perfect features and desing. the only bad is that you cant sent or receive any sort of data threw bluetooth!! apart of this.. is a great phone. thanks apple.i'm gonna buy it in a week from 2day. i've already ordered it.. i'm lookinf forward to! now.. i'm not sure if i can unlock it..! :/
No 3G, but WI FI read this and UNDERSTAND :
Vodafone policy shift evidence of European 3G failure
And Ofcom sanctions likely to increase operator woes

Comment Since the euphoria of the late 1990s, it has become increasingly clear that there will be no short term gains from 3G investment, and after operator write-downs, delays and frustrated performance expectations, UMTS is surely a failed platform, at least without the HSxPA upgrades.
It was misguidedly promoted largely on the basis of "killer applications", which either failed to excite the consumer base, or could not be delivered adequately by the first generation technology.
The concentration on multimedia applications, however, led operators - especially in Europe - radically to overestimate the expected ARPU from 3G services, and so to overpay for their spectrum and build-out, leading to a wave of write-downs earlier in this decade.
Cellcos have had to refocus on services that are genuinely wanted, such as low cost voice, but which carry low margins; and they are having to upgrade their networks more rapidly than they had planned in order to support more advanced offerings in a way that appeals to users, hence the wave of HSxPA investment.
Meanwhile, they are facing new competition that was not foreseen when they paid billions for their 3G licenses, from flat rate wireless VoIP, Wi-Fi, converged services pushed by non-mobile operators, and the threat of mobile broadband based on WiMAX.
