It takes about 2 seconds, and it takes longer with other phones, so please. We don't need MMS because we can email. Taking videos using a phone is alright, but it is way better to take a video using our digital cameras, so thanks but no thanks. Not being able to forward sms or a contact phone number is kind of a bummer, but that would no longer be an issue once copy/paste will be implemented on the iphone in the next 2.3 firmware update which will come in Feb. Honey, the zippo lighter is only one out of the almost 20,000 apps on the app store, so please =) Again, we can email photos taken by the iphone, no need to MMS. BTW, the 2mp takes decent photos comparable to any 5mp cameraphones. The iphone offers other more helpful and useful features than MMS, SMS forwarding and video capture that keeps us busy with it. The iphone is an awesome device, but your attempt to pull it down is useless because millions have already bought it =) The pain in the rear are bitter and envious people like you who come in here and post nonsense =) There was never an instance that the iphone refuses to charge, lol. You're just desperate =)
BTW, I just bought my brand new MacBook Pro and it's the best. I can't believe I waited this long. Apple is awesome =)
If you don't want to buy anything from Apple, suit yourself. Who cares?! :)
Yesterday Thailand Introduce the Iphone 3G through True Move provider. It was the most Joke of the my life time. They had about 5000 to 10,000 people in line for mroe than 4 hours wating doing thigns such as file out papers adn copy docoments. By about after 4 hours you get to the almost end of the line they say no Iphone. You need approval loan by Bank to give you Iphone. They were turning away almsot 95% of the customers away. What a deal Apple made in Thailand. It is better to by the phoen out side at Black market MBK unluck instead of get through True Move. Steve Job need to look in to this deal at Thailand. Not good for Iphone.
priddylaydee, 16 Jan 2009hmm.... anonymous...clearly someone who's proud to say they have an iphone. i for one am not.... moreYou know what? You are making yourself out to be a giant tool.
You bought this phone not bothering to check out the specifications. No, no better yet, you SIGNED a CONTRACT for a phone you had NO idea about? Why would you do that? That is in no way a smart decision, and not one you should blame Apple for. If you don't like what it doesn't do go buy something else. Everyone here knows what it lacks, but most of us bought it anyway and the rest bought something they liked more.
This is not a place for a whinge-fest, no one wants to hear it. You acted naively, you live with the consequences.
Marsbar, 16 Jan 2009Yep you can not make a video on the phone and you can not send mms, the iPhone is a cool gadge... moreI'm confused... how can the 5800 XpressMusic be more of a phone than the iPhone. Surely its obvious where its features lie.
You Nokia guys are all the same, dissing iPhone users about buying a hype driven phone and then rushing out to buy the 5800 and, one would assume the N97, except, whats this? It isn't even out yet?
Hypocracy isn't a good tool to have in a debate, which this forum has quickly become. If you wan't to talk about Nokia, there is a lot of other, more tolerant people who would love to listen... let us iPhone users discuss apps and our opinions, like this forum was meant for.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2009YA! why dont you go for those much advanced products??? All you did was talk about all the ba... morehmm.... anonymous...clearly someone who's proud to say they have an iphone. i for one am not. and i dont care who knows it. the iphone has many features, mostly quirky, some downright weird and some that i've found useful. however the only times i've used the "gps" it has actually misguided me onto the wrong direction of one way streets, almost into a canal, and several other great story making ideas for telling the grandkids when i'm old and wrinkly. The music functions are good, as long as itunes is up to date. and the camera i could live with. but there are many basic things missing. and emailing photos to people who neither have nor want an iphone is a pain in the rear too. apples pathetic attempt to overtake the world due to the necessity of sending and receiving mail clearly isnt working. so back to the drawing board. there is nothing on this phone that i'm unable to live without, or even mildly useful in making my life easier. i've spent a fortune downloading applications that are just as bobbins as the phone. all i can say is that i'm eager for my contract to end.
I was amused with the fact that the screen flips when you rotate the phone for around 2 mins before getting bored and realising that the phone i had waited for ages to get was actually bobbins. no mms. no video. you cant even forward a text message and as yet i havent managed to find if and where to forward the number of one contact to another. yeah some of the functions are cool. most are pointless. i mean, who needs an iphone zippo lighter that you can flick open by flicking the phone (flick, woo, flick, woooo....bored) which doesnt actually light anything (obviously) when you cant even text a photo taken with the pretty crappy camera installed on it. But when you cant even perform basic functions that even the most rubbish tesco's own brand have on them now like message forwarding and video recording, it rapidly takes the shine off the other capabilities.
you'd save yourself a lot of time and money buying an ipod touch and adding the necessary applications through which you can make calls. (yes you read that right).
at the end of the day it's a pretty item. but also pretty useless. and a complete pain in the rear end if your itunes isnt up to date by even 12 hours after which the phone itself refuses to charge or work and leaves you stranded 300 miles from home, and 50 miles from anywhere in the early hours of the morning.
but think about what you make next cos you'll need to really impress the customers you ticked off with your last ridiculous effort.
won't be buying ANYTHING apple branded again.

All you did was talk about all the bad things the iphone has. What about the web browser,the GPS, the multi touch screen and the apps?? Go on itunes and check out the apps you can get and you'll see why the iphone is the best! And another thing, cell phone cameras are cheap ok. Do yourself a favour and buy a point and shoot camera. Lastly, the iphone has been on the top for quite some time. The iphone 3g only has gps and 3g added. Otherwise its the same iphone. The other companies are only now starting to produce something similar. Next time think before you post.
Here is what they have accomplished without MMS and bluetooth connectivity :
A banner on Apple's front page proclaims that the App Store has surpassed 15,000 available applications and 500 million downloads. The milestones come just over six months after the App Store's debut.
Ronell, 16 Jan 2009Love the looks. Sorry about the mms. Here is the reason why you would not need MMS on your iphone. Iphone has email at no extra cost with more reliability than MMS. Let's say you have 5 group pictures with 10 people in the pictures, and they all want you to send them those pictures. You would be sending 5 pictures to 10 people. That would be 50 MMS messages. Do you know how much extra charges you'd incur to send those pictures via MMS, when you can email those through your iphone at no extra cost. Please think.
New iPhone User, 16 Jan 2009Hi All,
i have few questions to ask as i'm new iPhone user
1- is there App i can install... moreJust wait for a month or so. Firmware update 2.3 will include landscape keyboard for both SMS and email. It would also include copy/paste. So hang in there.
Marsbar, 16 Jan 2009Yep you can not make a video on the phone and you can not send mms, the iPhone is a cool gadge... more"I am an owner of the iPhone, thinking of selling it to get the nokia 5800, seems more like a phone, it has flash, a better cam Loads more......."
Well your Nokia 5800 does not have an application store, so sorry. Its touchscreen is not as responsive compared to the iphone. It's UI is not as fluid and smooth as the iphone's. Loading pictures takes a while, unlike the iphone that it loads pics instantly. It's music player is not as good as the iphone's. It's web browser is not even good, lol. So go ahead, sell the iphone, that is if you really have one, hahahahaha
boypinoy, 16 Jan 2009Does the Apple iPhone 3G have MMS capability?
Does it have a flash for the cam?
Does it have... moreIphone has an App Store. It has the best customer support team. It has the best UI. It has a fast web browser. It has the most sleek design. It has the best music player. It has the best legibility under direct sunlight. The best glass display. The best integration of services. Those features are more important than MMS, flash for cam and video calling =)
Maybe you need to talk to Nokia, SE, LG, Samsung and Palm to see if they can have those features on their phones, since those features are more important and really matters =)
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2009why don't you add radio to the apple iphone.There is a radio application for the iphone. I use Pandora. There are other ones actually.
