After using the iPhone 3G for 2 months, I am afraid I have more grouses than praises for it.
The phone is not very stable as I seem to get carrier drops quite frequently. Not too sure if my set is a lemon, but from what I've read on the net, I guess I'm not alone wrt the carrier drop.
For the kind of price we're paying, we're getting an antiquated camera with no video (unless you jailbreak the thing).
Furthermore, the GPS sucks....you have to be connected to the 3G or GPRS in order to update the maps. If you are overseas, don't do it as the charges will be exhorbitant. This is ridiculous. Giving you Google Maps, but you can't download or save the maps.
One thing I find really SICKENING about the iPhone is that you have to Sync your phone in order to transfer certain files in and out of the phone.
As a Windows Mobile, I can literally transfer anything I want via Windows Explorer, ie exe, txt, xls, ppt, jpg, avi, mp4, flv etc. But with the iPhone, I can't do any of these !
Maybe these criticism are biased against the iPhone 3G. Hopefully the iPhone 3G S addresses some of these issues or there are additional plug-in which I have yet to install.

I'm tired of my bs Nokia 5800, i was a full supporter of Nokia since the beginning, but seriously? Just Google Nokia 5800 and you will be flooded with the infinite amount of software/hardware and every other stupid ware problems that plagues this ridiculous attempt of a mobile phone.
I am just going to give in to the fact that within 10 years every pocket will contain an apple device, whatever that may be.
My only question is, to which i want a yes so badly, is the Iphone capable of playing music while browsing the web? This is something i do very often, and despite what some people say that "I don't do it and therefore i don't need it" I say that there are people in the world that wish to use to small features that make them love a phone.
So yes or no? Can the Iphone play music and browse the web at the same time? Or is there an app that can enable that function or whatever?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970if i wanted an iphone i would have bought an unlocked one 2 years ago when i bought my unlocked N95.
I prefer to have volume and stereo speakers ,a camera with a flash, and I'm glad i had video recording from the start, along with a2dp and voice guided gps if i ever needed it.
