dont buy this phone its cheap but really very bad u will hav to regret
Ahmed, 06 Jul 2008My name Ahmad I want to buy iphone mobile is it really good ? And what abaut its BLutooth? Ans... morePeople planning to buy a iPhone ... Please go through this first
!!! BEWARE OF BUYING iPhone 3G!!!
Friends.....those of you in India planning for iPhone... THINK TWICE BEFORE MAKING A DECISION... The short comings of iPhone are endless...
No video calling,
no AD2P on the Bluetooth,
CAN'T share ANY (mp3, images,videos....) files via bluetooth,
can't use as a wireless modem, (you pay ridiculous data charges to activate internet on your phone, but cannot connect it to your PC and browse when you are at home)
no copy and paste,(cannot copy a part of a.... say.... email & send it....have to type it out yourself)
no 3.2 or 5 megapixel camera,(the 2MP camera it carries is worst camera i've ever seen..... photos look like they have come out of a VGA camera)
no video recording with camera,
no front camera,
no JAVA support
No physical keyboard (BELIEVE me! this alone is a dealbreaker...touch keyboard as good as it looks...once you use it then only you come to know about the importance of having a hard keypad)
No 3G network yet in India..so why pay for expensive 3G phone if you cant use its 3G services ... so, for India, iPhone 2.0 is no better than its first version
No removable battery. (You cannot change battery. Have to send it to apple outlet.. Come on now!!!!...This is not an iPod. Its a bloody phone. You cannot live without phone for 2-3 days)
No haptic feedback and
cannot send MMS,
can't use as external storage device (16 GB of utter waste..next time you go to your friend's house & find some interesting songs, movies, etc...sorry you cannot connect your '16 GB' phone and share it!!!! Apple apparently has a solution.. " BUY MUSIC & MOVIES FROM iTUNES STORE "..... Give me a break will you APPLE!!!)
no FM radio,
can't use your mp3 files as ringtones,(This is heights man!!!)
cannot insert any other SIM card….
completely tied to iTunes... Connect to your friend's iTunes & you risk erasing everything on your phone.
list goes on & on & on….
We Indians are used to these features. Most of our phones already have these features. & we cannot do with out them.... i mean can you imagine paying so much for a phone with which you cannot transfer files via bluetooth. what age is this ...STONE AGE???
Some features may be activated by jailbreak.. But why the hell should you risk losing your warranty after paying so much.
And want to add third party softwares??.. YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM iTUNES STORE ONLY!!! . (Shell out more money). Apple is a bloody control freak. Dont surrender your freedom to it.
Its good for american market (who have no idea what mobile freedom/choice is) which is in stone age compared to asian/european markets. When they want to buy a phone, they have to go to network operators and buy only those phones that are available on that network. & stick to that company till their contract expires. You want to change carriers? Not before paying damages, & buying another phone on the other network again.
On the contrary, we in India have so much freedom. We go to handset shops & buy which ever phone we like. Then go to carriers.. checkout the plans & buy SIM. Dont like the plan or rival carrier came up with a better plan???? EASY . just remove & replace the SIM.
Apple are trying to IMPOSE THEIR MODEL ON US riding on the hype iPhone has created in the US (yes it was a flop in Europe .thats why Apple never talks about its sales in Europe).
Dont fall for the subsidized price of iPhone... CHECKOUT THE DATA PLAN ATTACHED TO ITS SIM ..they will recover the cost through ridiculous data plans. Bill might come to around Rs 2500/month.(ATLEAST AMERICANS PAY THAT MUCH)
Let me clear one thing though.. iphone is the best looking phone (its touch interface is nothing like you have ever seen ), & best browsing experience out there no doubt .... (& others are fast catching up..check out the android demo at Google IO 2008).... BUT AFTER A FEW DAYS IT ALL COMES DOWN TO FUNCTIONALITY...
Those of who buy it... You will be most happy for atmost a week... & then, MARK MY WORDS...YOU WILL START REGRETTING IT!!!
My advice...WAIT FOR HTC DREAM!! (powered by android). Still not convinced by then...by all means go for iPhone...
So friends lets spread this info to all our friends and help them in making a wise decision.... & those of you who have bought unlocked versions already please share your experiences with others
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.... GOODLUCK!!!
blondie, 12 Jul 2008IT'S A WASTE OF MONEY!! A problematic phone... i bought it really expensive and after 2 months... more In indonesia/sumatera where we get infr abt
iphone. last sunday my frd sw t me abt iphone
bt i du now anymore. pl
its weird to see lots of ppl hate this phone,,
I dunno are they apple haters or what,,
but I phone is really a new revolution on the phone trends and also you guys have to admit it has the best touch screen response from other touch screen phones..
it also has gorgeous looks and it is a good phone for you that love phones with gorgeous looks and interface..
for me personally phone is just to make phone calls, texting, and listen to the music,, so i dun mind with some of iPhone disadvantages..
if you guys wanna buy phone that have 5 or 8 mp camera why bother buyin n95 or the new samsung? go buy digital camera with cheaper price and better quality,, it can record video also btw..
if you want a brand new phone with cool looks and new user interface that can give new experience then buy iPhone..
its better to have phone with good multimedia than buying phone with good camera, especially apple is a pro in making ipods so no worries with this one,, LOL
I've bought it and i think i'm pretty satisfied although to be honest i expect more from apple xp
Really need help. I've updated the iphone software to 2.0 i think, via the itunes. Subsequent to that, the software have been restore and now my SIM is not compatible with the phone. For your information, I'm a user in Malaysia.
Can i change back to the previous software package? or is there any other solutions.
i hate this apple! so slow internet. no signal and always hang. the stylus easily break. the screen too soft. and this is not water resistant. always makes my hands wet. easily fade especially the paint. but still apple iphone rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!
go go go!!
go for the gold!!
when i go to installer app. to install any app. or game it gives me a msg ( main script execution failed )so i can't install anything can any body help me plz :(
IT'S A WASTE OF MONEY!! A problematic phone... i bought it really expensive and after 2 months i had problems with the text keyboard, it got really slow, when i was in the internet it took me to the menu, it wouldn't send or accept pictures, videos or music with bluetooth like other phones, i couldn't download anything from my pc and in the end something happend and i couldn't charge it so i was left with no phone... oh! and it fell down one time and it is like i had it for 10 years. nobody told me this things. they just want to sell "phones".
