What a dud. No 3G, No MMS, Crap camera? Come on people!! This fails on all fronts except the noice UI and brand front.......But hey thats all people need then go for it. Will wait and see.
I think this phone is sooooooo sexy.
It reminds me of SEAN MC CLAREN
Big ,Stylish , and sooooo sexy
and easy too use
Greetings from Los Angeles!!! I don't know what you guys are talking about the iphone not being able to connect to a car via blue tooth. I have one and it does connect to my 5 series BMW just fine. Internet browsing is a little slow but overall awesome phone. Google maps is amazing and so is the yahoo weather. I've had everything from a n95 to lg prada and the iphone is still one of a kind!!!
Ok lets decide on how to categorize this phone before we judge it.
It's not a smart phone by any means.
I think it's an excellent phone for entertainment period. nothing more nothing less.
Tell me one thing inovative about it beside having the name APPLE.
My comments about the blue tooth came from an ATT salesperson who claimed that it only support a headset. He said it does not pair with a car blue tooth. Is that true? has anybody tried it?
Ok I think you all should check the real smart phone by Eten Glofiish x800.
I think that you all save your mony and keep your old phone. They play mp4, mp3, 3gp, and all good things. Also most imprtent they have bluetooth ;)
please reconsider your plan to buy this phone. It does looks amazing but after you buy it you'll regret it. maybe next time when they make a better one, not today, it tooks time for apple to make their phone product into perfection. some important feature missing, and it is not a productive phone like other, it is a consumtive phone that will crush your bank account when you realize it...
Even on the apple site they say that iphone supports bluetooth!
A trademark logo of bluetooth and it says:
Instandly connect to the iphone headset and !other bluetooth devices!.
I dont know what to think anymore...
Why does everybody says the iphone has no bluetooth while gsmarena.com says it does, yes only with headsets but that is the same as a carkit or a handsfree set.
What does headset only mean exacly?
Hopefully by the time the iphone get to europe they change the sim card support so i can use my old one with my own number.
this phone will be another expensive failure it hasnt got Bluetooth text messaging will be near enough impossible and it hasnt even got video recording yes its got video player but whats the point if u carnt bluetooth videos to the phone and u will have to wait till u get home to put music on to it all in all rubbish give me the n95i anyday
Why do you spread lies? Yes you can change the SIM. No you can't change the battery (like an iPod) but Apple will change it for you, it has 10 days battery life in standby (how can that be poor??), it doesn't have a memory slot but it has 4 and 8 GB of internal memory by default , the Bluetooth is 2.0+EDR (how can it be primitive??), it also has multitouch, rich html browser W3C compliant based on the Webkit/KHTML core with full standards support including AJAX, Web2.0, Acid3 CSS compliant, rich html email client with IMAP, POP3, Push email,, accelerometer, integrated ipod, wifi, visual voice mail, native core image support, 8.9cm screen with 320×480 pixels at 160 ppi, ical sync, itunes sync, reader plugins for pdf, word and excel documents, iphoto sync, Google services integration, free exclusive yahoo IMAP push email support, etc, etc etc.
Iphone...comparing apples and oranges.
For questions on buying the iphone and shipping it to another country...unlocking it...is it possible, is it doable?
Once you've found the sim, the biggest hurdle you need to go through is activating it through their website. There are sites/tutorials as to how to go about this part. Truth be told, its rather easy and probably some would term it as an elementary type of fraud. Ask your MMORPG friends who have activated an account with an U.S. address and a generic social insurance number...
But shipping it overseas? hell no...probably the most idiotic idea one could ever think of.
The biggest "selling" factor the iphone has, compared to other phones (aside from the bling factor), is its cell plan; its unlimited data rate. That is the best the phone could offer!
Most data rates, go about 3-5c per kb. The iphone on the other hand, has unlimitted data rate; for a heavy email/surf user, this is definitely the best selling point for the phone-and for anyone with logic.
Another big selling point for the phone is its youtube player-most pda phones or phones of that level fail to accomplish this.
The reason is rather simple; no codec that decodes/read flv (flash video-this is the format most videos are streamed in the internet-there are 3 other emerging streams that are used though; wmv; for tv stations; mov for apple, and the newest one that is used by divx).
There are a few downsides to it though, the 3g, the camera,phone tones, etc; (compared to higher end phones i.e. p1, and e90) the iphone is left by a mile.
Although the other alternatives may be more expensive, it all boils down to this, you get what you pay for, and for the iphone, its a glorified ipod.
But speculators and rumor has it that the reason why this iphone is so lacking in phone technology and capability is probably summed up in two words-target market.
This phone targets the United States, phones in this country are quite behind compared to the u.k. and asia. Its BIGGEST competitor in this market is the blackberry-we all know how blackberry is so shunned in u.k. and asia, and for a phone whose use is mainly its email/web access, the iphone just massacres it.
So if your from these markets (u.k., asia, etc), just wait for the iphone aimed at your demographic. From the news going around-the next release will include a better camera, 3g capability, and so on and so forth, a stronger and fiestier phone compared to this one they've released-which is mostly the case for any 1st gen phone or electronic.
So, to sum up, for the blackberry user, buy the iphone, for the asian/uk market, get the e90, or wait for the iphone 2 this december.
I think there was no space left in the phone for bluetooth. It is just an another i pod with a touch screen phone features but not all. Just a piece of crap w/o bluetooth.
well I still think after certain number charges and discharges the battery will and the phone will go dead.
this phone does not pair with any car blue tooth.
this phone does not support 3G.
this phone is only a toy to enjoy for few days.
mark my word Apple will fix everything I said very soon exept the replacable battery.
"this phone has many drawbacks.
first it's only avaialable through ATT.
You can't change the SIM, it's part of the phone.
You can't change the battery, when it's dead you trash your phone.
it's blue tooth is primitive.
it does not have 3G.
it's easy to drop."
- Many phones are only through AT&T.
- You can change the SIM - go to Apple for directions.
- On Apple's site it explains the battery. I will last all day, unless you are staring at the screen constantly and have it set wrong.
- Look at the PC magazine video review on You Tube. It's almost indestructable. So, drop it and don't worry.
I thought I said "FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW" I DID NOT say for those of you who THINK they know, because apparently people you CAN in fact use your i-Phone SIMless yes you heard me right, WITHOUT a SIM card, and here is my proof:
No it cant work, because it will work only with ATT and you have to SIGN UP 2 years Internet contract..Go buy other phone..
HI everyone, I have a VERY VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION to ask to those of you who know: If I buy the i-phone and have it activated through AT&T and then a couple of days later I Disconnect my AT&T service, WILL THE I-PHONE THEN WORK JUST AS AN I-POD/WIFI/CAMERA/DVD.....etc??????????? PLEASE someone PLEASE answer me as I am planning to buy it in the next 72 hours, IF & ONLY IF it would still just work as an i-pod once I deactivate the AT&T service.
dis greatest phone ever. i have this and Noka n95 and this is much betterz. wowoweewah
