so, why doesnt it work for tmobile? dont they use the same network? I mean, just use the same SIM card that Tmobile provide, and put it in the Iphone, i wont work that way?
i'm a mac user and this is definately going to be my next cell phone the moment it goes on sale!
There are a few certain drawbacks, however:
1. No 3G. - I'm European but I live in the USA, and I can tell you that the mobile phone technology here is at least 3 years behind europe, and at least 5 behind Japan and Korea. The phones are ridiculously simple with no design, no functionality and the cell operators control the software. The 3G network here is only in a few cities, so I'm not surprised the iphone does not have this feature. Once it comes to Europe in the fall of 2007, I'm sure that it will support 3G.
2. Here in the USA, the ONLY carrier for the iPhone is Cingular. Apple has chosen them to be the exclusive operator. So, if I want to get it, I'll have to: A) Cancel my T-Mobile service agreement and pay them $200 dollars in early cancellation fees. B) Sign a 2-year agreement with Cingular, an operator which does not offer anything more than T-Mobile for me (except the iphone) but yet will most likely charge at least a good $80/month (compared to 50 now).
3. If the iPhone is made of the same high-quality plastic like the iPod it WILL get scratched in just less than a day. Apple say it's more durable, but I have to see it to believe it.
Still, even having said all that, it is still a revolutionary product (at least for the USA), and the fact that it will INTEGRATE perfectly with my mac is the main reason why i'm getting it once it comes out. :-)

same ipod mistake again-- no fm tuner ,no user replaceable battery ,batter will cost u about 1/4 price of phone to replace ,same shiny glossy plastic gets scratch easily,and where the hell is 3g and they are not shipping stylus with this we have to use our finger all the times and gets fingerprints everywhere on screen.
i guess iTunes would be the best option instead of an mp3 player as such and I guess Apple wouldnt mind that too.. wud b gr8 if they include FM radio with RDS
Really it is good looking, surely it will create more expectation on apple i phone & the screen is attracting. i think but sending message will take more time to type & send -- but it is a product of emerging technolgy, youth surely like these like mobile. really nice to look & create more customer to apple, surely customer will expect many more models & nice rate will be expected from Apple--- my conlusion is good not very nice
Good looking phone. Is this phone have FM Radio also?
I think Mp3 player of this phone will be of very good quality. Any Idea?
All I can say is this is their first release and their still testing. Just look at DSLR Cameras, sony's first DSLR has just been released and has gone head to head with canon and nikon straight off the bat and it's evety bit as good, if not better. I'll put my trust in apple that they'll do exactly the same. Everything else they produce... Just makes sense, unlike most products on the market. Good work Apple
no 3g, no gps, only 2mp camera, no SD.
why this phone is so special?..aaahh..because it's an apple product. you make me laugh..
you people are so snobs..
i am not a nokia fan, but you just have to read the new N95 technical specs to realise that nokia has done it again.
so, as a conclusion..be "smart" and pay only for the brand further.
It looks good but will it be hard to text message? It is comign out in June right? exciting!
Like Steve jobbs said it 5years ahead of any other phone..u might find it hard using multi-touch screen at first and w/o keypads but its a new future guys! y need keypad if u can just use ur finger?? Alto it din have 3g yet but apple will have it in future thou...they now are testing the market first...c'mon guys,its mobile phone market...give them some time..
Apple is not just about design but it's user friendly...people may say its hard to use or easy to use a phone..but bare in mind...if u good and knowledge how to use it..evrytg gona be fine :) well, with iPhone i dun think i have to worry about loose of screw...loose of navigation keypad...nway...about its 2.0mp well it still far away from SE cybershot and N95 but hey...evryone have digital camera ryt??
Btw, the iPhone rely great...i love it..n m so eager to buy it soon...every hp got it's drawback so what?learn how to use it and adapt it...ppl using Nokia then change to SE face problems 1st tym using it...well..this tym,i guess Apple will be main competitor for Nokia with SE this year....they just have to launch more apple iPhone products...
Vote for iPhone........apple rules...
