Can anyone please confirm whether the iphone supports word document and excel spreadsheet viewing AND editing ? Also, does it support powerpoint presentations and PDF files ? (viewing only for these two).
Thanks in advance.
i think the iphone is great if it was released before nokia or sony or samsung had relreased their 2-megapixel cam-music-phones.there are hitech features of the iphone but the bottom line is that it is still a 2mp camphone, and not 3g at all. im not saying it is badly-designed but i agree with the other poster here that iphone's release is late. it should have been released in 2006. what's worse, it will only be released in asia in the late 2007 or early 2008. nokia and other phone manufacturers are gearing up for a much better models when that time comes. anyway, good luck to all soon-to-be users of the iphone.
Someone said the audio level of the iPhone was low. What utter nonsense! I have two iPhones now. They are both the same and extremely loud as compared to my Samsung D500, Motorola Razor V3, and SE 750i. All these phones had low audio volume as compared to the iPhone. Sometimes I have to either hold the phone away from my ear, or turn it down it's so load. So, for the hearing impaired, it seems good.
Someone said the music quality was not good either. More lies, lies, lies; it's just as good as my iPod Nano.
Some of you need to a grip on yourselves...there is no 3G, no GPS, no memory slot, no games, not that I would play them anyway, no High-Speed Circuit-Switched Data (HSCSD), no open architecture pda software downloads, would not want to have sweaty palms when holding it! and talk time up to 8 hrs...yeah right! Seriously, what is all the ramping and raving about?
this is prob the best phone on the msarket in 2007 internet is fast email is great and the iphone ipod is the best one yet there is no doubt in my mind that it is the ggreatest phobne ever created
Why can't you have all 3 in 1 ? call, listen to and play, also work on a little device like this
good looking phone but lacks the features that is more functional n important.
I once owned an iPhone, but returned it after 2 days.
The only thing I really liked about it was the Internet browser, this was great!
But with Opera mobile 9 and Microsoft Deepfish soon to be released, it makes the iPhone browser look ordinary.
I now have the at&t 8525 (known as the HTC TyTN).
The issues with the iPhone were:
-The visual keyboard (too small),
-EDGE network (far to slow for such a nice browser),
-Contacts were hard to get to. (Scrolling was fun, but not really functional)
-Locked in applications...only Web based applications are allowed, no room for true growth.
-Camera with no features, not even zoom.
-Sound quality was too low, you could barely hear the person on the other end.
-Great iPod features.
in summary, it was a good "looking" phone. but not worth $600.00 for all that it lacked.
I found this link. It tells me there will be great things coming to this phone.
I have written several reviews of phones that I feel are user friendly and by doing that I have recommended quite a few. This comment is not in any way geared towards the options or features available on the iphone. Personally I feel this innovation (even tho it was borrowed)is great but I would like those who are considering this or any other phone to follow their heart and not the opinions of anyone of us who review these smartphones. If all you care about on your phone is bluetooth capability then by all means get a phone that does that. Getting a $50 phone does not make you any less of a person than the individual who purchased the $500 iphone, Samsung, Sony Ericsson or any of the nokia N series (N93i,N95,N80,N91...). Your needs should drive your purchase and our opinions should only guide that future purchase.... have fun!
the i-phone is perfect!!!! I think this phone is good look but it is very expensive!!!!
great fine i have 2 of them and cant live with out it
all my usage of music fone etc in 1 sweet lil device well done apple
ive heard so many bad reviews about the iphone. might as wel wait for the sony ericsson w960i, chk the spec, much better, plus better camera as well from a more trusted manufacturer. the iphone will be dated by the time its released. as someone previously stated for more recent nokia or sony phones the iphone is not worth a second look into. stick to the walkman brand of sony ericsson. for the person going to america to buy it, i hear you can only get it on a 2yr contract with the network AT&T or something like that.... its not worth the hassle. if u want it dat bad, just wait for the uk/europe release
So far, iPhone is the only phone that has super smooth and fast menu!
"will i-phone work in countries other than usa on a local network cos only at-t has rights for it ???"
This has been answered on the iPhone forum multiple times
People, pay attention and don't be lazy. There is a "Search Opinions" at the bottom of this page–us it!

you guys buying phone for music? for MAP? for office ? ..Phone is phone, and you have to use only for talk..For music go buy ipod or Cd player. If you always home and want play with phone for fun, then buy Nintendo..Really i use very sample phone, for only answering my calls..
Just want to know, on this earth any phone with beauty and charisma as this wonderful device?And the UI out of this world.
I am in a fix. As i am sure you must have heard about Iphone (Paris Hilton of mobile phones). I cannot sleep or do anything without the thought coming into my mind again and again. The thought is with me day and night. I have never wanted any device like i want the Iphone, and i am not saying this lightly!
However, the device is made to work only with AT@T sim card and their condition is BLUE MURDER even for those who live in America. One needs to sign 2yr contract of $60 monthly (minimum) to use an Iphone in the states and since it is an Ipode( the feature i like very well) one needs to pay additional money to download music, podcast and movies into the phone.
All said and done for me to operate the Iphone in here, i have to buy it in the States, activate ROMMING facility from there and pay almost #4 dollars per minute for all calls i made even local( within Nigeria). So all in all to use the phone here means spending nothing less than $10,000 within the two year contract that is if i am to minimize my calls to only 30minutes daily. I am sure common sense will not allow this.But my sense is not common when dealing with such an issue.
Finally, i read somewhere that a different sim may work on the Iphone( I am sending you a link). I would like your personal OR professional advice ( or both) on this matter.
I may sound a little bit crazy to you but what are friends for?
