Also, to add to the post below. I urge all interested to get the iPhone and play with it. You have 14 days to return the phone to the store and cancel 2 year agreement with AT&T. You will be charged 10% restocking fee, so it will cost you $50 or $60 depending on the version you get. I think it is fare price to be able to play with it for 2 weeks.
I have purchased iPhone on its second day of release, so by now had played with it for a while. This is the best mobile phone I have ever had. The ability to look at web pages the way they intended to be, with zoom in and out is unprecedented. Also having 3.5 inch screen in your pocket to watch any movies is phenomenal considering this is the same device from which phone calls are made. Yahoo, Gmail … works great.
There is an issue with setting up exchange for corporate servers, but I think it will be solved within a year, and then this “toy” will become heavily used by business. All my coworkers said they would give up blackberry in a heartbeat the moment iPhone would work with corporate e-mail servers.
It is thin enough to carry in a pocket along with wallet.
Yes, it has shortcoming such as, 2mp camera, no video camera, edge (which works very decently, to my surprise), no games, no IM.
But all these shortcomings will be taken care in the near future. Meanwhile, I am totally enjoying the phone.
Any nokia that has symbian is better than iphone with no near enough closed os x.Apple are stupid if they think os x can take on symbian.
how did you change out the sim card? as at&t says its preinstalled so you cant take it out
and what features are you talking about that you will lose by doing that
I bought my iPhone at the apple store on a Sunday and not on a Friday. They have alot in stock at the Apple Store. YOu can go there and ask them, they will have it. The best time to go is in the early morning when they just open. I went to get it on a Sunday at 7 p.m and they still have it.
You can also change your sim card to use in your own carrier and not only the AT&T..But as you know that you will lose some of the Features that comes with the AT&T Package.
Question will be answered if any.
If you go on the Apple site, you can see if they will be available the next day. And, AT&T is getting stock now. So, try not to pay high prices on eBay. If you get it on eBay, pay less than retail. (just my advice). Have patience and it will save you lots of money.
If you get it on eBay and try to return it, you will have trouble. Get it from Apple or AT&T.
Please may I ask:
What is the purpose in bashing the iPhone or any other?
It seems it's O.K. to state facts; but it seem rude to discuss the worth of any device using ad hominem attacks.
And, why not let people be excited about it if they think it's cool and/or want one?
It seems too many people are control freaks or just want to spoil the fun for others.
i recieved this phone for my b day 7/7/07 cool eh i live in australia brisbane
any way my phone has a 20 gig memory space heaps of songs i love kylie minogue and vivaldi so enough room for my collection camera works a treat calling is a rather scratchy but i can live with it the battery life is really good i get about 19 hours of listening between charges if you want a mp3 phone this is for you
Nokia fans, please take your Nokia and sync it to a Macintosh (OS X). Sync it to iCal, Address Book, Contacts, and then–last but not least–iTunes.
It will send and receive a MMS.
The SIM card will come out–easily.
It works in Europe–with an International agreement (just like T-Mobile)
Phone quality is the same as most phones.
It's only slightly over-priced if you compare it to an 8GB nano iPod. Now, add the killer iPod multi-touch screen and it's worth at leas one-hundred dollars more–so figure at least 350.00 retail. Add a phone, and it's now about 400 - 450. So, not too bad really.
Don't buy this phone from the sharks on eBay!
Most Apple Stores are getting them daily (I went to the Apple Store and got my second today); it's only a few days to have one delivered. Also, the AT&T Stores are starting to get them again.
Somehow this forum has become a competition between the iPhone and the Nokia N95. O.K., answer these questions–you supporters of the N95:
* What is the retail cost of an unlocked N95?
* Is it supported in the US?
* Will it work with all GSM networks without error?
* Why isn't any major US GSM carrier carrrying it? If they did, what would it cost and how long would the contract be?
* How many have been sold to US consumers only? And, why do you think that is?
I've been reading what many of the mindless hobgoblins have been posting about the iPhone. One issue was with regards to the inability to send a mms. So, while sitting at a STARBUCKS within the last hour I tired this: My wife, who has a Samsung D500 on T-Mobile, took a photo and sent it to my AT&T iPhone. Within a minute it arrived. Then, I took the iPhone, shot a photo, and sent it to her T-Mobile phone via the AT&T network. Yep, as expected, "Bling," it arrived to her T-Mobile phone. So, it is possible to send picture messages to and from T-Mobile and AT&T.
What people need to understand is what a mms really is and how it is actually sent. If you know this, you can send a picture message. So, don't be lazy and read your manuals!
"Java is used in banks to run complex financial transactions..."
Java is, in fact, a valid excuse. The bank analogy is nonsense. Banks are not wireless, have their own professional firewall, and are not used in multiple countries on multiple networks!
"Im nt against apple, infact i love all their products except iphone. If they released an iphone with atleast the following 3Mpix cam, cif or vga video recording, 3G, java and add more features 2 d bluetooth, then i wud buy one."
Yes, you are against Apple. The issues you raise are directly against Apple and their valid reasons for doing what they did. What they did is not easy. It's easy to bitch, but not so easy to produce. Security is not easy (Companies use Blackberry and not Windows Mobile for this reason). More requires more (processing power, battery size, network capability, etc.). Simple, in the case of the iPhone, was harder to do.
I have the Blackberry 8800 (with T-Mobile Service) and now an iPhone for fun. The iPhone has more music than my previious unlocked Sony Walkman. The iPhone does most of what I normally do. So, Apple was close to what I needed. There could be a few enhancements–but I give it an 8.0. As for the fun factor...it's really cool.
