Somewhere is a consumer looking at the Apple iPhone in an Apple or AT&T Store. They have always admired this phone and wished to get one. They like the beauty and simplicity; it does what they need. Upon announcing their intention to get it, they are advised by a friend, family member, colleague, or significant other, not to get it - as there are much better phones for the price. So, they are told about the 'Belchfire-2000' model with 64 terabytes of memory, the turbo charged WiFi, 200 giga-pixel camera, satellite receiver, DNA reader, and on-the-go breathalyzer.
While sitting in STARBUCKS, with the manual the size of War and Peace, they notice someone at an adjacent table sporting the iPhone. They look at their Belchfire-2000 in their hands and the voluminous tome of a manual and sigh; tears begin to well up in their eyes...
Get the point? If you like it, have always wanted it, get one! Don't get a phone someone else wants. It may do lots of things; but if the iPhone does what you want, then it's a good phone for you. And it is, in fact, pretty cool. And if you don't like it, you can always return it. Apple has a two week return policy. So, don’t stress it.
Get real.Symbian is the best OS for mobile phones.All the rest are rubbish
the phone may have a few shortcomings but hooking it to at&t made it a piece of crap.i think someone at apple got a little greedy.despite that it made a huge sale in the us because apple is somewhat a status symbol there.people here in asia cant afford one.all in all i think they will have to make it available for other sevice providers to make it a sucess otherwise if it is really that bad the truth wont hide for long,they cant fool consumers with aggressive advertising.
...and again some kid said that Apple has create the best OS,sorry they do have a stable OS,but they haven't best OS,Unix is the best OS,you should to try out freeBSD or DesktopBSD.So then you will see what is the best OS,well let me remember there is Linux too.But anyway any OS is better then Windows,because Windows sucks anyway.Don't say that i don't know what i am talking about,because i've been working with IT for 10 years.Check www.distrowatch.com
I think the developers have had a good idea,but i think they have forgetten important and miss out of things what i phone/smartphone supposed to have.So i have to say this phone sucks,i don't know if can i call it a phone or wathever.If you read the review on Mobile Review you will know what i am talking about.I have expend the same amount of money to buy a Nokia N95 or Sony Ericsson P1 .Check this link below,so then you will see the reviews,and stop whining saying this is a good and it is NOT.Grow up kids.
i don't have first hand experience with the i phone but i have the nokia n95,and i love it.didn't like the look of the i phone.
i think that the iPhone is really an entertainment center with a phone. and does the job super well.
but there are lots of us out here looking for a smart looking, rather light, dependable and easy to use business phone. there are lots of us road warriors who practically hold a virtual office through our mobile phone.
could you at apple please design a good one for us? if you need some details of the phone we wish for, we'd be more than happy to send you detail. you can post here a web address where we can send our comments.
i bought this phone last week and it is super. it seems that you can down load programs that can control other devices. i operate my microwave with it as well as open my garage door. sometimes when i go to the movies to record films to sell on pirate dvds the recording quality is excellent for such escapades
its the best bcause it has the best OS ! i lov that , u can chack out this phone , just APPLE INC.
Hi, all this phone has a unique ability , like it get's switched off automatically... Ha now that's a feature to die for..
The battery life of the Iphone is way better that any other PDA. I owned several PDA that cost way more than the Iphone and when it comes to battery life IPHONE is still the best. Otherwise, you have nothing to do but to use the phone every minute,
worst phone really sucks !! waste of money and i lost ma temper, Have serious issues regarding battery. . the charge goes down in a day, at the end of every call battery will be low.
This phone is fr college students and its not a business phone.
Ipod rocks .. this Iphone quality is poor, check if u have an ipod
I always post here before, and i will post again now..Guys, if you buying Iphone, then be sure keep the BOX, because im sure, you will RETRUN IT before 14 days..If you keep this phone along then 14 days, so you will take every day 2ice ADVIL, because you will feel Headache, as i had...But i return it after 2 days and Oh my god, im using Nokia E65 and perfect phone..Iphone will change automatically your Voice mail style, and will change some kind of think in your ATT account..After i return this phone, i had allot of problems with my ATT account, and thanks to god we fix it, but very hardly..So again, dont loose the BOX, keep it and im sure you will return it soon...
i just got one on tuesday n well, im impressed with some features but im not overall impressed with most.
The features uve seen on tv like the pinch effects, screen resolution, zoom, album art is cool and its not like on any phone which makes it v. interesting. But things like automatic screen change from landscape to portrait, widgets, and the need to use 2 hands is awfully slow.
My iPhone lagged several times and had to be restarted. Not all phones are perfect but phones like iPhones and PPC styles, its difficult to use with one hand, and its v. fragile meaning it can break easily with one fall thus u need a protector which does look ugly on this thing. coz its a phone with an ipod or vise versa, u cant really use the phone if u listen to alot of music due to its battery life. U need to use it either the MP3 OR the phone.
Camera is decent, not perfect like the Sony Ericsons coz it does not have Auto-focus.
But overall, if you want a phone which sets u offroad, unlike any other on the market (well then theres the Prada but havent checked that out yet), eye catching design, the iPhone is great for you. eventhough its quite pricey.
will there be a new iphone comming out within a years time, as my plan finishes in august 2008, and i wish 2 get an iphone, howeveri want a newer, beter iphone with 3 G capabilities.
The phone seems great, almost perfect. Love the screen. Just that I'm a huge fan of 3G. If they came out with a 3G version, I'd definitely buy it. Until then, I'll stick with my Razr V3XX.
In contrast to Carlo's opinion, yes it does have a sim card slot. its located at the top of the phone itself (sitting right next to the power button). This phone is by far the greatest device I have ever seen and it's so disappointing that it is locked up to AT&T :(.
@ money lova, and yea...you're basically paying for the little apple logo on the back :) haha but you knoe people...they'll fork over alot to get the brand that's "in" and if you've looked at apple's stocks lately you know they are VERY in...
@money lova, it's priced this high because apple has become a status symbol. everyone thinks that if youre "cool" you have an apple. even look at the movies...when they have some hacker guy on the comp 8 out of 10 times its gonna be a mac.
As for the prada or iphone question...it depends on what you want. (the following assumes youre in america) if you want to be a trend follower get the iphone. its not different as many people are buying that thing and you wont be disappointed with the experience(it really is fun to play with).
But if you want to be a trend setter and/or different and be noticed get the prada. it'll save you a few hundred and you can go with any carrier as its not locked. and most people in the us dont know about it because they havnt brought it over to the states (although there are rumors verizon is trying to bring a cdma version over to compete with the iphone, which will suck cause verizon always screws up the OS and cripples the features) but you'll still have one of the few gsm ones if that happens...
Some of the down sides of the prada though is that its screen is .5" smaller and it only supports 262k colors(iphone is 16m). But the damn thing is prada. If youre a girl (not sure how many guys would sport prada) i would think this is a no brainer...haha anyway its always best to play with both and see which you like best.
