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
This phone is so overrated. If you look through this site and compare there's a crapload of phones out there that are better and cost the same if not less.
No 3G? only Edge?
very strange to design such new device with such older GSM network.....
Well, the first reviews are in. But you may have missed some of the more interesting factoids unearthed by the trio of gadget reporters deigned worthy by El Jobso to get a pre-launch iPhone. Here's a few fresh n' interesting iPhone facts right off the presses:
The mobile version of OS X or whatever it is the iPhone runs takes up 700MB of the device's capacity. Damn son!
There's no way to cut, copy, or paste text! WHOA! Big, big mistake.
No A2DP support. That, friends, is such a huge bummer right there.
Sorry, music can't be used as a ringtone -- even if it's just a raw MP3. No additional ringtones will be sold at launch.
On a PC the iPhone syncs with Outlook for calendars AND addresses! Noice.
It supports Exchange in some capacity, according to Walt, but he doesn't exactly say how.
Pogue again confirms document file reading -- but not editing -- for PDF, Word, and Excel (only).
Adobe Flash support is officially out. It's just not in the browser. Neither is there any other kind of embedded video support. Sorry everybody, that's that.
It will take snaps, but won't record video. How can Apple love YouTube as much as it does and not realize cellphone-shot movies make up a sizeable chunk of the crazy crap you find on there?
More after the break!
Oh, and no MMS. And sorry, no voice dialing, either.
Contact groups can't be emailed as contact lists.
Apple sez between 300-400 charges the iPhone will lose battery capacity -- you'll send it in and get the cell replaced for a fee. Meh. We knew this would be the case, but still, meh.
Apple can (and supposedly will) be rolling out periodic updates -- no surprise there.
Battery life is, somehow, almost as mind-blowingly good as Apple claims for calls, music, and movies.
As we suspected, users are prompted with lists of WiFi networks if you're not nearby a trusted hotspot. We've seen this on other phones, and we're afraid this would get friggin annoying.
It's said to be very scratch resistant. The facade both front and rear apparently just doesn't pick up marring like regular iPods do.
Voice quality is said to be good -- not great.
Anything else we missed from in there?

11 functions missing in the iPhone:
* Cut/Copy/Paste option
* Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP)
* MP3 ringtones
* Adobe Flash not supported in Safari browser
* Video capture
* No removable battery
* No edit of Word and Excel files – you can only view them
* Direct iTunes access
* Instant messaging
That is correct the I phone will only be available to AT&T and no other service, because the simcard is built into the phone.
finally the wait is almost over and everyone who has talked crap about this phone is going to shut up when everyone is going to be buying this phone tomorrow and the reviews are going to go through the roof!!!!!!!!!!!
Go read the first REVIEW before buying the iPhone, there's so many problems...!
and i would never think twice about getting an iphone, im satisfied with my n95, and im only 14!
again, really sorry. do accept.
