It's true that you can in fact take out the SIM card, yet I don't really consider that a possibility. I've never heard of any respectable company telling you to grab something like a paper clip and jam it into their product in order to operate it in any way, in this case, remove the SIM card from a phone...That many consider as expensive. It's just foolish, and because you have to use something as unprofessional as a paperclip, that tells me that they truely do not want you taking it out.
I HAVE THE IPHONE, and I really don't like it. Here are some problems I found with it(By the way, I wrote the other review that's identical to this one):
-Minimal battery. Battery/SIM Card can not be taken out. If batter dies, you have to pay to replace it....No way around it.
-No Voice Dialing. No voice recording.
-No AIM or AOL.
-No memory card slot.
-No MMS service.
-On-screen keyboard...Hard to use for many.
-No A2DP BlueTooth...The good version.
-Smudges on screen
-Can not install new programs to the phone...MySpace IM, AIM, or LimeWire to say a few.
-No MP3 files as ringtones.
-Not so easy to set up.
-I find the back appearance ugly. Silver and black don't go well together on a phone, Apple. Why didn't you continue the chrome and black on the back?
-No Microsoft Office
-Dropping it = Death of the phone :)
-Not many plans
-$500-$600. I don't really mind because my daddy buys me everything I want, but other ppl have a problem with that.
-Random malfunctions. Glitches. It freezes sometimes. It should NEVER freeze.
-This isn't a big deal to many, but to me, it is. There is no copy and paste feature. It's great to use when you're quoting something that someone said. Or to send a large amount of text from a website to someone in a text message.
I believe that this is enough to justify my right to complain about the ever-popular iPhone. But, for what this lacks, I'll use my other phones to make up for.
YOU CAN TAKE OUT THE SIM. i have done it many times. there is a sim tray at the top of the phone. u need to use a paper clip to take it out. plus if u couldnt take it out this phone wouldnt be on gsm arena
* here are some reasons why you should buy this phone i did its way too good for me so im going back to my nokia
-Minimal battery life (just like the video i pod i brought few days ago)
-Battery SIM Card can not be taken out
-you have to pay to replace the battery
-No Voice Dialing
-No voice recording
-No memory card slot
-No MMS service
-On screen keyboard a bit hard to use
-no A2DP blue tooth
-blue tooth available only for the head set
-No GPS (i don't mind anyway)
-Can not install many softwares to the phone
-apple got to be shame of there selfs to say this is a smart phone although we gotta pay the apple for every single application
-No MP3 files as ring tones , u cant set your ring tones as you want
-Not so easy to set up
-no copy and paste feature
-no 3g (i don't mind but some do)
-safari web browser without java support
yes you better buy it trust everyone whose telling you to forget about the bad side of this phone and go for it , trust everyone who had given the comments on web sites saying that this phone is the greatest of all ... you will love it after you use it for a week please do buy it i did i am sooooo glad , glad , glad more than enough yes thank you apple good product very nice of you
The year is 2007, where is 3G and HSDPA support? This wont definitely sell in Europe and Asia-Pacific.
i hope that apple should have taken another year to add the missing features to this phone ...
almost all the missing features in this phone are helpful stuff for the users of a smart phone i wonder what went wrong with em im upset to hear that this phone don't even have regular blue tooth options ...
IPHONE rules...no other phones can compare to the Iphone. I can only give 3 things: 1. Full website browsing 2. Physical appearance 3. Easy email setup. Good job Apple.
thats a apple? its ugly. no 3g. no HSCSD . no games. no VoIP. this is a 600$ phone? you kidding
Talk about a phone!!! the design is great BUT the performance and the features are not!!! to the makers(stick to the ipods and laptops)
Same here for a smart phone It should have better stuff its all about the touch and how it looks. I gotta admit its cool in some stuff but Worth 600$ and not the simple things like the camera 3g and that other stuff its a rip off cause thats what people want in a phone not just looks and stuff.
i put this phone on vibrate and well use youre imagination boys tricky sticky with the i phone and no i am not accident prone
every now and then i will give a little groan
its a good phone australia is the best place to use it as the net works are really good have fun
To Ksgp: I think you don't need a phone...BUY A DESKTOP instead!!!!!
FORGET ABOUT THE NEGATIVES REVIEWS they dont have the phone!!! I Have it!!!
I was SKEPTICAL and IM NOT APPLE FUN, i never been, but i got the phone and it is really nice phone, I have internet that works excellent, it works bluetooth, has voicemail, Youtube is so so quality with AT&T but Wifi is great quality, You can have Wifi anywhere, it automatically ask you if you want to check. You can check your emails...
AMERICANS have mouth to TALK and thats it...they complain for everything, that is why you see so many bad reviews here.
If you are a business people and need word, office or powerpoint dont buy the iphone.
If you are not picky, Just buy this Iphone, is the best phone on the market, IPHONE IS BETTER THAN N95!!!
lol i would like to point out that those that complain are ppl that dont know how to manipulate the iphone and add more applications to it or are just too lazy. Hahaaha yeah so stop complaining and start hacking
learn sumthin from nokia, SE, Samsung, etc.
only nice 4 its iPod n 16M touchscreen. other than that is Rotten Apple...
how lucky i am, i bought aa Ipod from Nicholas here in this comment and i got my Ipod 3days after it was ok thank you Nicholas
guys, it says comments about iphone not comments about each other.... i hardly found a comment about the phone itself, all what i came out with is that most of you dont have the phone and just dreaming to buy it, or ur browsing the internet for information about it and ur even not doing it right.
