Steve Jobs loony bro, 02 Jan 2009To all you loonies out there, thinking that Iphone is the Best or Greatest thing ever...
How ... moreFor the longest time I hated the Iphone, thinking people only got it BECAUSE its the Iphone regardless of what it can actually do. I thought (since I was looking into a new phone at the time) that there MUST be something better, because such an overwhelming majority couldn't possibly have the best option out there especially if its the most popular phone.
After weeks of research on all different phones and operating systems, the Iphone still had the fastest processor, the most RAM, and by far the most applications made for it. The user interface and general seamless-ness of the phone is unparalleled. No other phone I've ever seen or used or even heard of has ever achieved such a beautifully simple and functional interface.
People say that apple has a hold on customers and that you have to pay for apps, but the majority of applications are free, including the ones most commonly used. Examples of free apps include: Facebook, Shazam (which Sony Ericsson charges 5 bucks a month for), pandora internet radio, Wikipedia, a free dictionary, a FREE language to language translator, Instant Messaging app, metronome (I'm a musician), as well as MANY games. Even of the ones that AREN'T free, they only cost about a dollar.
Also to the Iphones advantage is the abundance of 3rd party developers, meaning people can make programs or games or ANYTHING for the Iphone, utilizing all of its features, and publish it to be sold in the App Store. The few bucks you'd pay for all of your games or applications is EASILY worth it.
The Iphone is also the only mobile phone to utilize Multi-Touch, which allows for "pinching" to zoom in and out of stuff. The touch screen is easily the most dynamic screen of any touch screen phone and ONLY reacts to fingertips, which proves convenient since many complain of pocket button presses.
The low Megapixelage of the camera is not so bad at 2 MP as long as you steady the phone before capturing. The phone was built around the idea of simplicity, which explains the lack of features. If you want to take a good picture, either spend 900 bucks on the C905 8 MP camera phone or buy a camera. 2 MP is good enuf for most things and phone camera flashes really tend to over expose pictures anyways (I used to have an N75 and I would turn off the flash even in dark areas).
Integration with Itunes is simple, quick, and efficient. Many people complain that you have to use Itunes, but Itunes really isn't so bad, or maybe I've just been using it this whole time. Regardless, its one of the better phone-PC syncing clients out there. The Nokia PC Suite was buggy as hell and made transferring files a nightmare. While bluetooth syncing and mobile internet on PC through phone was nice with Nokia PC suite, its easily something I could live without (the Iphone web browswer is the best of any mobile phone and in most cases can provide as well as a PC with regards to text and even youtube videos etc.)
The variety of applications available for Iphone is nothing short of breathtaking. There are literally thousands upon thousands of applications, some better and more useful than others. My brother who is a Ph.D student for Neuroscience was surprised to find an application that can be used to view MRI photos in 3D. I've found WebMD applications, lolcats, loldogs, programs for music majors, Medical School Terminology, Medical dictionaries for professional usage, the list goes on.
Anybody who says that the Iphone "sucks" probably only hates it because its popular and because everybody has one. I used to be the same way until I realized that it was more than just the hype. The Iphone is a work of art in my eyes and does what it does perfectly, and then some. Also, with each update from Apple, more and more stuff is becoming available. I heard recently that bluetooth file transfer is on the way, along with MMS capabilities (thankfully) and A2DP Stereo Bluetooth. This phone isn't for everybody, but it is certainly a match for most, if not all, phones.
kim, 01 Jan 2009since everyone also like to have Iphone with u own.. but i telling u .. is sux!! i bought this... moredont get me wrong with this, IPHONE was created as an INTERNET BASED DEVICE/features that you are looking for, are on a typical unit/If you want a high CAMERA MP, go for cybershots/For Music-Go for walkman phone or even an express music phone or IPOD/Iphone was designed mainly for e-mail based people not for cheapos and beggars/Ty!

Can i just say...
i think that apple knew what they were d oing not having MMS. They rushed it along. just to get people to buy it. that why is missing basic features...
they thing about apple... is they try and adpat everything to it... but wont let it adapt back to something else. t here for keeping all the money and trying to windle out competitors...
at the end of the day. they want money. that why all you apple computer users and iphone user pay out of your ass for apple. blowing 100s of dollars on apple stuff... and for what?
apple is a sham. there not bad technology. they just dont care about anything else but making the bucks. hence why you dickhead pay the big bucks for applications and everything has to be downloaded...
i mean i dont think any one phone is better. except at least most phones can adapter and work with most other technology in the world. apple has control over every single person that owns an apple product. and will make them pay what ever they can for there technology..
DIE APPLY DIE!!!!

rengokuki, 02 Jan 2009i work for att and the iphone does have one less base feature that the other phones att has do... morehere a list of what the Iphone doesn't do, unless you use Jailbreak, or some other dodgy program to hack a phone.
- You can't MMS
- Bluetooth only works with Apple Products
- No Radio
- No Video Calls
- No Expandable memory
- Only a 2 MP camera
- Must use Itunes for music
If you can prove me wrong then I accept that it is alot better than most other phones. The Iphone that I have is a 3G super-duper One, which the phone guy told me it would do this and that. But now it sits on my desk as a paper weight! And don't get me started about the battery!
Steve Jobs loony bro, 02 Jan 2009To all you loonies out there, thinking that Iphone is the Best or Greatest thing ever... How ... morei work for att and the iphone does have one less base feature that the other phones att has dosent and thats just the mms capability, other than that the iphone can really do so much more than what most of the other phones, other than like a blackberry phone which does the email so much better. so really the phone rox it just has to be gotten used to and you have to live in a strong 3g area.
To all you loonies out there, thinking that Iphone is the Best or Greatest thing ever...
How rediculous can you all be with a piece of technology that doesn't do what half the or even all phones these days...
Iphone this and Iphone that.. obviously Iphone people have NO lives, next you will be saying that the calculator is the most sofisticate technology to equate numbers.
In other words, you only like Iphone because its Apple!
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2009Don't send dodgy messages then, lol, kidding. I actually had a girl come into the shop wher... moreApple knows very well what this set lacks, very very well. They simply assumed people were gonna sign that push mail up they've got (by paying of course).
iphone , 01 Jan 2009im thinking about getting an iphone 3g, my gf has one and they do look very good, obviously it... moreDon't send dodgy messages then, lol, kidding.
I actually had a girl come into the shop where I work and we were talking about the iPhone and she said that was her only issue with it.
Now, I've been following this thread from the beginning and I just realised, whats the point of all these complaints? Why not go over to the Apple website and provide some feedback to them and hopefully it will reflect in their next update.
Seriously, if everyone who complained about no SMS forwarding and no MMS on here complained to Apple, they might just put it in.
Sure the iPhone isn't perfect, but its way more worth your while contributing to make it better than dissing it here where, we frankly don't care.
