Question - is this phone ONLY supported by the Serivce providers. I ean, can i buy it on my own without being subscribed to a service?
For Carlos, and others that don’t understand MMS:
An MMS is really sent to an email address–the email address of your phone. So, if you are on AT&T, for example, and want to send a picture message to a T-Mobile customer do this: Email them the message to their number followed by @tmomail.net. E.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. A T-Mobile customer, who wishes to send a MMS to a iPhone, should send the message to the user’s email address that is pushed to the iPhone. It’s just as fast as a typical MMS service. Why? Because this is what is happening anyway! So, any phone capable of sending a MMS can send one to the iPhone and visa-versa.
Somewhere is a consumer looking at the Apple iPhone in an Apple 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 freind, 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 the turbo charged WiFi, 200 giga-pixel camera, DNA reader, and on-the-go breathalyzer (Oh, and yes, even a hair-dryer ;-)).
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 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.
No matter what, none of our opinions worth a dime, cause this phone gonna go down in history as the most sort after phone
i want to make an apology to the readers 'cos the comment posted below is mine. i forgot one thing that though, this is apple's first experience in phone industry specially in smartphone, they had built really new & nice device but not totally perfect. peace
the biggest disapointment of the year; no radio, no keypad, poor camera, no flash. what a piece of crap this is
woow nerddds chill, it nly a phone nd it a ledgend phone at that. apple made it of course its gonna be great
This phone will be a big disappointment it was released ages ago and is now only making it to the uk does that not tell you any thing dont see this being a best seller for long
i thought it wud be better to take this phone, for that i waited alot but this one is something called 3rd class
if i activate a plan then cancel it can i still use all the features such as the internet besides the phone app?
the people on these forums make me howl with laughter. the majority are all absolutley clueless.
this phones crap, this phone is rubbish, its got nothing on it yarda yarda yard yarda SHUT UP!!!!!!!!
its a phone that is designed for simplicity and easwe of use without all the insignificent crap you find on handset these days, its a PHONE yes PHONE not a frickin laptop like most of you want it to be.
it plays music it makes calls it sends text messages it takes pictures. wat else do u bloody need. next there will be someone complaining cos there aint a hair dryer built in toi it.
please do get a life people and stop comparing this handset with others. its a unique design aimed at people that want a phone and a mp3 playa, thts it.
hahahahahaha right now i can calm down
Hearts Desire - The Best comment i red hahaha :)
Hard, not to agree. :)
Erm... let me say it again, some ppl got it wrong:
1. Apple engineers are simply good - not going even to argue, they are.
2. Apple DOES NOT DISCLOSE API FOR IPHONE = There won't be any 3rd party applications developed, only those provided by Apple... if you think this is a good idea... well good for you.
3. I'm not disgruntled employee, but whoever taught i'm one, is actually an Apple overpaid employee :)
someone have an iphone ?how do you play games with a touchscreen ? where are the games for sell ??
how do you send MMS menssages with a phone that do not suporte it ??? hum
you say: Does it hurt to see innovation ?what inoovation, have a touchscreen?...but nothing more, maybe its because most of the people have mobiles so long time,and dont understand people siting outsite waiting for buy a phone,iphone is lack of alot of today features !besides there are other touchscreen phones too.
that is wonderful.
i thnks it is not near to w960.
and it come with good price.
"...and you cant send and receive MMS..."
Yes it can, in fact, send and receive MMS messages. Call your service provider to see how it's done! I have both T-Mobile and AT&T service; I can send and receive MMS no problem.
I had Iphone about 3 days ago, and i return it after 1 day..Nice phone, Internet is perfect and most of think good, But, im sure every person need and love use Bluetooth and MMS on this days..This phone is missing Regular Bluetooth, and you cant send and receive MMS..I paid 599.99 and also battery was bad..If you use Internet 1-2 hours a day, the battery will die very quick, but Razr v3xx, you can use full day and battery still full..Maybe Apple need Upgrade this phone..
--> that is true.. you should try HTC 8525 its way better for the same price or less.
Has more advance features than iphone. =D
