dispite all the bad talk about talk this phone may recieve, usualy by those who havent even tried one, it is by far one of the best phones ive ever owned. ok, bluetoothing stuff back and forth is a drawback, and so is MMS, but i cant really say i depended on these features massively when using my previous 8800 and N95 8gb. i have jailbroken and unlocked my 16gb iphone from 02 to use T mobile in the uk. EVERYTHING works as it should, which is excellent.touch screen is brilliant too, which is why it was so attractive to me because its so sensitive. texting is an absoulte doddle once you get used to it!
and i was ALWAYS one that was against touch screens full stop. what other phones offers such an array of apps free and purchasable, a briliant internet browser. its just awsome and i couldnt ask for anything more. i have a phone, mp3 and mp4 player in one not to mention a fully featured net browser.
nice once apple.
For the people who dont know whats so good about this phone

And for the people who want to see the f***ed up mobile plans in australia please watch this video and prepare to laugh
Tim, 10 Jan 2009Hi, Sounds a daft question but will the iphone work with a blue tooth hands free kit, any hel... moreYes, it will work with a bluetooth headset or car kit but only for calls.
I use a dock connected to my car stereo to playback music and wear a bluetooth headset, when a call comes in the music cuts out and I take the call on my headset using it's answer button.
When I end the call the music resumes.
had this for week and as good as it looks and feels at first the novilty soon wears thin and the issues that hold you back in terms of phone use soon shine through i.e. bluetooth issues, mms issues, battery is short lived and the functions soon become anoying and frustrating. I have now exchanged the iphone for a blackberry curve which is a lot better in regards to its use as a handset, organiser and web access. the battery life kicks the iphone out of the way and the media is just as good in my opinion and its free to get.

Pepsi, 10 Jan 2009Vodafone's plans for iPhones are pretty good really. The $79 gets you $550 worth of calls and ... moreAmericans whine about paying $US30 on top of voice for unlimited.
I was on the $69 cap and was going over every month, I'm waiting now for the bill cycle date for my plan to kick over to the $79.
$10 more for an extra $210 of calls and 150MB of data isn't too bad, now I'll have $400 of calls left over at the end of the month instead of the usual $200.
Vodafone's plans for iPhones are pretty good really. The $79 gets you $550 worth of calls and 400MB of data, excess data is charged at 12c per MB.
That's pretty good if you go over your allowance. I don't know what all the fuss is for.

Pepsi, 10 Jan 2009Why would you work for Vodafone and have an Optus mobile?
Sense: That makes noneI work for Vodafone, have a Vodafone contract and am now looking for prepaid data from another network to use in my iPhone when my pitiful data allowance is used up.
I might even have to buy a USB modem and chuck it away.
Australian Networks s*ck as far as data on top of voiceplans go!
It's also common to have more than one SIM to take advantage of intranetwork rates i.e.

The post I made with more details is waiting to be approved by a moderator.
Maybe my one took longer because it was a seed unit from Accord.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It does if you enter an iPhone IMEI, it says not available at the moment and asks how to would like to be contacted, that was the reason for the two day delay, presumably for Vodafone to contact Apple and arrange it.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2009No Java Midp on this super expensive phone? wow.. Zz..ZzNo java, that's like crying about not being able to play a Sega Master system game on an X-Box 360.
Give me the top notch games and applications from the App store any day, there is no comparison.
