will i-phone work in countries other than usa on a local network cos only at-t has rights for 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?
Hey bad news for the iphone, sandisk and knigston have released a new 4GB memory card and by the begining of next year they will have up to 16GB memory card on the market, that permit any late phone compatible with the sdhc format to match the iphone with memory format. And by the way the nokia n91 memory was 8GB in 2006 and almost have the same features as the iphone except for the touchscreen, they are pratically both identical, but the n91 can shoot video with the same 2MP resolution. I would say iphone is a match for n91 but for late sony ericsson and nokia phone, it's just a joke, nokia and sony erickson just released some terrific phones such as the sony ericson k850 and the nokia n95. But those two last phone are like VIP phones since they are not affordable for anybody.
well, n91 has good features and has the same amount of memory (8gb) as the iPhone.. but man, this phone is by far the best that i have ever seen! nokia cant even animate its applications the same thing iPhone does! so between the iPhone and N91, the later is behind by 5yrs when it comes to technology.. and that's not all, iPhone will be launching something extraordinary this 2008! so better watch out!
who care's what every body thinks they jus love critisizing i beat you've been using only nokia ever since cell phone's were invented.
great gaget hope they try to match it! naaaaaaaaa everything else is wack
as you know, iPhone has a 8gig flash memory but N91 has Hard Disk Memory, and it can be damaged easily.
The other problem with iPhone is the bluetooth and i want to ask if someone know iPhone can transfer files or not..
Your question has been asked and answered on several posts in this iPhone forum. Seek and ye shall find.
I noticed that the fish wallpaper did not come included with my iPhone. Then I keep reading on this forum that there is no more wallpaper.
Well, I've downloaded some new wallpaper images to my iPhone - including the famous fish that is pictured here on GSM Arena.
One more note. It is also possible to send MMS to and from the iPhone. Suggestion: Read your manuals or talk to your GSM carrier to understand how it's done. Also, search the Internet and Apple from time-to-time to see what the truth is and what changes are in the works. :-)
As an "apple-wanna-be" I'm wondering if I could use the iphone in Europe as well.
I'm traveling to the US next week and want to buy one?
Will it function "as normal" once I touch ground here?
WHat are the known limitations
Beside of (personal) opions, should/can I buy-and-use it in Europe that is?
Any honest advise would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot,
HERE is a good website to terminate your iphone contract early
"The iPhone is absolutely worthless. ... I know what I'm talking about.."
When a statement is started that way and then ended with such a fallacy of personal opinion, I think it's safe to say the person does not know what they are talking about.
I've had Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, and Blackberry Phones. I've used Sprint, Cingular/AT&T, T-Mobile, and Vorison. So what!
I have the iPhone and I think it's very nice. So what!
If you want one, get one. If you don't like it, take it back. This is the best way to evaluate the phone. (My opinion - of course I could be wrong.)
After all the negative that has been said about the iPhone, I kept mine because I like it. I researched it prior to purchase; it's doing what I expected it to do. No regrets.
Works good with my .Mac account. Syncs perfect with my Mac - even when I'm not at home.
Photos and attachments are good.
Sending and receiving MMS works - regardless of what others say..
Clear calls and works well with my Plantronics headset.
SMS in the US and via International is working great.
Interface is nice; don't need the manual.
Batter is better than reported. E.g., I make it throught the day without a dead battery.
Too many naysayers that have not actually used the iPhone and/or just want to bash it (possibly dealers from other companies).
Owners Overwhelmingly Happy with iPhone
“iPhone buyers have no regrets,” says Edward C. Baig (USA Today). Baig spoke with Jason Kramer, the chief strategy officer of Interpret, a market research firm that conducted a survey of recent iPhone purchasers. The study found that “90% of 200 owners said they were ‘extremely’ or ‘very’ satisfied with their phone. And 85% said they are ‘extremely’ or ‘very’ likely to recommend the device to others.” The findings, says Kramer “are ‘pretty much off the charts.’”
Apple has chosen AT&T, to be Apple's exclusive carrier partner for iPhone in the United States.
That was what at&t said.
This iphone product is exclusively for AT&T. here is what the at&t says:
