Oh, I also forgot to say that the dumbest thing that Apple did was team with AT&T aka Ma Hell with the worst customer service and help line period. It would have been much better to have used Verizon which is under Vodafone Group, but if they wanted to stay GSM then T-Mobile which with there myfaves would have made them a killer deal and they provide 3G which there data plan is cheaper then AT&T and faster plus for the traveler they would not be screwed when they go overseas with T-Mobile, for those desparate for this system At&t was definitely the wrong
carrier to go with
Hey folks the iPhone is is pretty, yes is it a cool innovation for the US yes, for the rest of the world a definite not, especially since iPhone is 2G but they will release a 3G version for Europe and Asia later in the year. For my European and Asian partners its a cute phone but thats about it, now you guys will probably get better functions since Apple will not make any major headway selling the current version in Europe and Asian which already are years ahead of the US in phone's service and quality. So if you are an American wait till its released in Europe and you will receive a better product.
The iphone pop out today in the USA. It is crazy, people where waiting outside cingular phone shops since monday. This is a good phone but i can not buy it because it has been tied to cingular. But i will have one when phone hackers have come out with an unlocked version and i am sure it is matter of months.
it all looks great I must say. However, I'm always a bit skeptic when it comes to brands entering a new market. I hope that there won't be any serious childhood stage problems and if there aren't this baby is going to be a real jewel. It launches today btw so it should be in stores sometime soon.
Whoa! the best phone ever!
Armed with last year's technology, an apple logo and all the hype your hype-rate can take.
Is Africa out of this world? Nobody says when it is coming to us,may be it will not work here. please comment.
This is the real deal!!! with smooth Apple features and also the powerfull function of OS.X fom MAC this maybe the best phone ever. but i'm not really hoping for some people who are Nokia and Windows minded to understand!
Yeah on ATT, u cant get this phone unlocked because the SIM card is internall
It's better to go to any apple or AT&T store and play with the iphone for awhile b4 you decide to buy one. Don't ever put yourself in to 2 yrs contract and stuck with it at minimum plan of $60 per month (60x24=$1440 plus $599 per iphone).
what apple do..???
it release this one so many people will buy it ...including me....and after some months will release the new one that will be better ...
This is marketing people.....marketing to sell as many they can ...so stop say about the phone and open u r eyes and c the truth
What iPhone done is not the best job well what they call is 'clever view' which is Gesture Command I've seen 2/3 years back in a car stereo system where while driving you just do a Gesture Command and system find the best suitable library components for you against the Gesture Command so its not iPhone patent
You are right, but only right 50%. iphone will be only at AT&T and locked by AT&T, it is just for first release in US market. Apple also had a release day for EU and Asia the end of this year and next year. At that time there will be a ton of unlocked iphones available. And we are hoping at that time apple will have a new firmware to fix all the disadvantage features they have now on iphone, such as: text message, MMS, MP3 ring tone, bluetooth A2DP, record video clip...and alot more. My personal, I think the iphone will drop the price badly after people buy and use it...there will be alot of conplains...issues...Also the price will drop because of the US market... similar to Razr V3 4 yrs ago, was hot for 6 months..then drop to $0 or negative with contract. Trust me, if you are a gadget person you should know how good of the price of any unlocked phones not release in US. and how bad of the price of any phones release in US
i think aplle rocks fail nokia ...google maps wooooooo 29 june lunch today
The iPhone will only work with AT&T and only AT&T. It will not work with any other US or international GSM carriers. If you travel abroad you will have to use AT&T's international roaming service. There is no way you can get an "Unlocked" version of the phone either without activating it through Apple's iTunes it becomes a pretty expensive paper weight. Just thought I should clarify this for everybody.
No open SDK
No IM/VOIP client
I'll stick to Symbian.
just wondering if this phone has a simcard slot as every gsm phone. otherwise, the sim chip is embedded to the phone which is similar to cdma or pcs phones.
at this moment apple iphone is locked and will only work with at&t,regarding the features iphone lacks-
5)mp3 songs cannot be set as ringtone
but apple is commenting that they will fix this by new firmware releasing most probably on 17 of august till that you have to run it the way it is
