IF YOU DON'T OWN A IPHONE OR HAVE NOT SPENT THE TIME TO REALLY CHECK IT OUT FOR MORE THAN 2 MINUTES, YOU SHOULD NOT BE TOO QUICK YO COMMENT.
I have had the iPhone 3G since mid Aug '08 (I got an early Hardware Upgrade). I never planned on keeping it for sure, I thought I would sell it and buy something else. At first it was buggy, but after the firmware updates it's improved tenfold! The Firmware 2.2 update made Safari even faster. I don't even use my old PC to surf the Net anymore! My iPhone 3G is just as good and the touchscreen is easy to use. I do wish it had MMS and changeable themes and a video recorder, but I can Jailbreak if I want those things. Or I can be patient and wait for them to appear in the App Store. There is 30,000 Apps and counting.
Are there better phones coming out? Yes, of course. But the iPhone may still have the best browser out there. And the next iPhone will be even better. Remember, Apple is still very new to the mobile game and with just 2 handsets out, they have proven they can make a very marketable phone. (I am no big fan of Apple, but I do like the iPhones)
Don't judge the phone unless you've owned one or tried it out to it's full abilities (it will take awhile!)
There still a 2.0 Mega Pixel Camera, most Modern Mobiles are 5.0 Mega Pixel & Above now, & theres No Video Recording, What a Blunder.
there are many things that apple wont want you to know about the iphone, like the lack of basic features. many people are cheated by apple thinking that it is a smartphone that off course should have basic features like mms, running program in background, bluetooth file tranfer, 2MP only camera, video calling over 3g, and it is OVEROVEROVER PRICEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
just come here from nokia forum.
Nokia E55(600Mhz), N97(unknown, quad core maybe) and 5800Xm(368mHZ) are good looking devices
apple iphone 3g is now boring, the design is just too simple and people will get bored with it design easily!
Who needs MMS and why???
I would not send any if I need to pay for it and there is no guarantee if it will be ever recived.
IPHONE can send een multi-photo email its eazy and simple at no charge.
MMS is crap expensive and already died out course of email.
(there is een MMS app for IPHONE thet can send and recive MMS for those who are desperate for it)

PHONES 4U IS DA BEST, 16 Feb 2009worst phone ever!! runs slow, crap camera, no bluetooth and the sound system on it is very dis... moreYou're joking, right?
I went to google to set up a new gmail account with a blackberry storm and it told me I had to use a desktop browser on a PC, so I set it up on my iPhone instead with no problems.
The storm is really annoying to type on after a while, having to continuously push the screen in, the screen rotation also seems to have a mind of it's own.
The applications and games are nowhere near the quality of the iPhone.
Apart from that the Storm isn't too bad the push email is second to none.
worst phone ever!! runs slow, crap camera, no bluetooth and the sound system on it is very disapointing!! go to Phones 4u and get the Blackberry storm
I do love the iPhone but I would trade for a better phone in a heart beat. Web browsing is better than the Omnia though.
The N97 is without a doubt a wonderful device, but the Symbian OS can only deliver so much fluidity and ease of use. What Iphone lacks in features like video call and MMS, it more than makes up for it with the App Store (over 20000 apps I think?) and of course the amazingly fluid and beautiful OS. If you've ever used one, you would understand how fun it is just swishing through the menus. I am extremely happy with my Iphone and would not trade for any other phone unless it was priced competitively (under 300 bucks) and had a good variety of useful applications, as well as games, 5 MP+ camera, among other things. And with jailbreaking your iphone ALWAYS an option, your Iphone can be as simple or as complex and equally powerful as you like. My cousin just put a PSOne (Original Playstation) emulator on his Iphone 3G, works like a charm. I have never seen any other phone pull that off quite as nicely, and there are VERY few that can do it at all (N95 is the main one).
