heres the link to at&t's webpage that says what i said below...
*heres why i said the iphone will NEVER e available out of the us*
this is straight from the at&t website...
Apple has chosen AT&T, the best and most popular carrier in the US with over 62 million subscribers, to be Apple's exclusive carrier partner for iPhone in the United States.
With this multi-year exclusive partnership, iPhone will only be available with wireless service from AT&T. Working together ensures seamless integration between network and device."
As with most phone users I like having a camera on my phone but am not that bothered what MP it is as long as you can actually make out objects in the picture..... BUT not having any video capture capabilities has completely put me off this phone.
Hopefully when it is released in the UK Apple will have allowed for this and updated a couple more of the phones features such as adding MMS, voicedialing, and allowing downloaded MP3's to be used as the ringtone (fingures crossed as apart from these the phone looks great).
Go read the first REVIEW before buying the iPhone, there's so many problems...!
To all you nokia lovers:
Of course the N95 is cooler in comparison to the iphone's features! Detachable battery, HSDPA, 5 mp camera, etc. But the N95 retails $700+. If you think about it, wouldn't the iphone have just the same features if they charged more for it (like nokia) and jam all that extra stuff in? Oh btw, the N95 doesn't have touchscreen so there is no backup when the center buttons break, as it always does with nokia phones. It' a dirt trap. Also the N95 has cr@ppy battery life, worse then 1st generation ipods. Can you imagine??!
Cingular (ATT) just released their phone plans for the iphone and although it's not as bad as many people expected, it still costs a pretty penny. In one year you will have paid for two extra iphones if you pick the 100$/month plan. I'm actually considering the 80$ plan. Funny thing is, they offer unlimited web use but cap text messages at 200??? My question to cingular users is: Is it worth it? I've heard some scary things about dropped calls, crappy customer service, network that works when they want it to. Or will it be better now that it is with AT&T?
Does anyone know if the iphone can be unlocked to use with other service?
dude this phone is so gay... no gps, no pic messaging, no 3g, the battery is built in, and so after like 400 charges, which is bout a year, its gonna die and u have to send it in to apple and pay to get a new one.
i want htc kaiser
For me, after see the vid is kindly cool. Plus with multi touch screen function and also freaking cool ipod features included. Base on what i already see, iphone will change all the phone now day and bring up it to the higher level. With Mac OS it might properly be the best phone eve created for business, student and also ipod user as well. Well done Apple.
i just think it is really stupid that people are standing in line before the release date to get this phone.i don't see the big deal in this phone just because it's all touch. I think this phone is for all those people who like ipods and think they can use this phone to beat our NICER phones( i dont know if that makes sense or not) but I'd rather take that money and buy the Sony ericsson w960i which is way better in every aspect.
Well, the Iphone is a great phone to have. As it is operated with MAC OS, I hope it should not create any problems for the users. The reason being that most Smart phone normally support Windows OS. But nevertheless Iphone would be a great phone to have.
this thing is gonna get scratched so easily!! omg. and word of the wise, do not buy first generation phones! im positive dat a better one will come out too. so be patient my friend
*the iphone was killed before it was born!!!!!!*
the n95 is way, WAY better than the iphone...
no touchscreen/touchscreen (big whoop-FINGERPRINT MAGNET!!!!!)
skinny-short-thick/wide-really tall-really thin
both have landscape view
removable battery/unremovable battery
heavy/HEAVIER (if the n95 is a "brick", then the iphone is a chunk of cement!!!)
memory card slot/no memory card slot
infrared port/no infrared port
2 colors/1 color
Apple's idea of car navigation is quite funny (and this was in the official iPhone welcome video). Use Google Maps to get the route and give your iPhone to passenger. Then the passenger reads the map and iPhone shows the intersections. LOL!!! Just like navigating with any regular printed map. Now that's "five years ahead"!
And what if your friend calls and asks you to check something from Google Maps. You say "sorry but I gotta hang up because I cannot browse the net while calling with this edge connection on my iPhone. LOL!!! Even my (almost) year ago released phone has HSDPA and GPS.
BTW. The iPhone killer comes from China:
holy s$#%! apple just said: it will cost $3.000! its a prohibitive price for a phone! i really dislike nokia phones but in this caso, go for n95 and be happy!!!
looks line one of the most expensive phones ever! and not as many features at top of the line nokia and SE phones... shame...
