Yes i have tried the Wi-fi it works great and very simple :) I have tried it at home, and at other networks too and it works perfectly.. You are right about using the iphone to access internet the screen is a heaven crystal clear and the zoom-in/out is so easy no annoying buttons or clicks it discreetly lets you browse the net and type as much as you want :) there's also a youtube icon on the desktop (if you're interested you can easily log on to it and enjoy the videos:) )
so basically if you have a access to an open WLAN you wont have a problem browsing the net..
hope i helped :)
when i got this phone i've been told not to update the software to the latest since the phone isn't "legally unlocked" so i just used it the way it is for the time being i'm sure its just a matter of time till we can update it regularly.. and about the ringtones unfortunately you cant do it on your own just yet but again i've heard of a shop in w-riffa that do that not only ringtones but themes and games too.. itunes icon does appear on the screen and about the warranty well bahrain's apple shop are not helpful at all either way i mean wether you buy it from them or not.. but to answer your question sadly no warranty unless you buy it & use it in the states.. i took my chances and brought it and frankly i dont regret it :D
oh i must mention that there's an installer on the screen desktop where you can install couple of programs ( not all of them are safe) you can look up in arabic forums for details or ask me here i'd be glad to help :) those programs include an arabic keyboard (but the problem is the each letter is typed separately..
hope i helped you :)
My keypad isn't loose or broken slider and i don't feel at all that the material's are cheap. i have seen loose slider's , but those were the dummy one's in the cell store that aren't real and people are messing around with them alot.
I love Nokia always, but this time They made N95 very cheap plastic materials..Very loose keypad and broken cheap slider...Iphone is perfect..If you need good camera, so go buy Camera from store, and dont buy phone which including 5mp camera..This is phone and not camera..
Nokia=Merc S600 Guard
Apple Iphone=Apple (yep the fruit!..eat it/use it/throw it in garbage!)
Ah yes it's syle and innovation... Go look at the moto rokr e6... linux mobile, WAY better
NOKIA = Toyota ( JUST PRODUCE :D CAR )
SE = HONDA ( Forbidden :D )
and Now APPLE " Iphone " = LEXUS ( lux. phone like LEXUS , really special)
if u want special coMoN Buy The best ITEM
I bought the iphone recently and it works great for me! I am glad I didn't listen to all the naysayers. It is based on the needs of the buyer. All U people harping on how great the N95 is - it's also double the price of the iphone & is a bulky item with an old style to it. You can't beat the iphone on it's style, functionality and innovativeness. I recommend for anybody thinking abt buying one - go for it!
Im still waiting here in Holland for the Iphone. But if I read it and all, the phone isnt that good. Many people prefer the N95 but I hear a lot of complainments about that phone (I sell phones for my living).
So now Im thinking, is it really that bad? I hope it wont take long anymore before it comes here in Holland so I can also try it out once.
Hello to everybody!Have read to many comments and realized that one goes by his needs.This phone (iphone) can't be compared since we all have different level of demands to anything.I just purchased a Nokia E 61i and still can't let go my Nokia 6230i,cause it does the whole work for me except WLAN,and I simply love it for its classic shape.Definitly Nokia N95 is a grate phone I bought one,then again iphone is also a grate piece of device.All the best to everyone!
n95 doesn't have visual voicemail, that's cool if i phone has it, wouldn't make me switch, but it is neat.
To: nhk - Have you already tried the Wi-Fi and it works? Have you tried the Internet through available network in Bahrain? I would like to think that the real beauty of iPhone is when you are using the Wi-Fi and Internet. However, if Wi-Fi works and the unit does not lock, then to have this unit in Bahrain would be nice.
n95 8gb is very good. it is most have everything of phone technologies. but iphone also good for some person like touch screen only phone. other less n95 8gr at al.
but everything is upon us if we think we like iphone. ok we can get iphone. and like me i like iphone also but it is not enought the technologies i need so i go to n95 8gb or other to get enought technologies i want..
i want to thanks to all companies make all this products...
I got an unlocked iphone here in bahrain and i love every thing about this phone its unique in every way i've been! the crystal clear screen is simply mind-blowing! the touch-screen is so good user friendly.. only thing missing in this phone is not being able to forward msgs.. text msgs are shown in chat bubbles.. so when you receive a msg you cant forward it.. Other than that this phone is simply the best :D
If anyone has a question i'd be happy to answer :)
rxx. N95 is thick but is a well made phone. I keep mine in my shirt pocket. To other guy, people who use cell phone's do not care about market share's spec's are what are important !!!
Stop talking about the N95! This is the iphones page! sheesh.
Back to the iphone... How purty i want it for my sisters nephew. He is 4. Do you think he will like it? Im worried it will get scratched when he goes to kindy so is there a cover i can buy for it? Does it have moving screensavers? I know he will want a moving Elmo one on there Elmo is his favourite. Does it have satellite tracking by the way?
The N95 is so thick . Why would you wanna put that fat peice of plastic in your pocket
