I have to admit, I didn't think much of this phone in the beginning, but now I love it. I give it 10 for looks and user interface. For their second crack at a phone I'm truly impressed. I find turning off 3G saves battery life marginally.
Aside from that Camera could be better, video recording would be nice, as would MMS.
I use both my N95 8gb and my Iphone, I love them both.

Anonymous, 26 Nov 2008What you said was quoted directly, why don't you find somewhere else to troll?The original quote came from a person by the screen name of Stolen who agreed to my previous posted comment regardin the iphone vs. all-around smart/pda phones in which i replied back to ' Stolen' using his/her quote, but i forgot to add 'thanks for agreeing with me Stolen.' check previous page(s) for my comment which led Stolen's comment.
In regards to all around phones, i wasn't refering directly to the phones mentioned in the quoted message. Use common sense. Ofcourse, i was also refering to 8 megapixel camera phones because they are all around devices.
david, 28 Nov 2008I work for Telstra as well.. haha... I reckon Optus's management is better than Telstra... so ... moreAustralian plans are crap in general, they just do not provide enough data, at least it's better than a few years ago.
Vodafone here, I smash the data every month and use about a quarter of the calls.
The network is good with very few drop-outs or issues that Americans seem to complain about.
I work for Telstra as well.. haha... I reckon Optus's management is better than Telstra... so the price $729 + $80 (unlocking fee) = $809 for iphone 8gb, right? I did ask Optus store few weeks ago, they quoted me $1029... -_-"""

For an 8GB on prepaid its $729, and for a 16GB $849. It's the only way to get one without going on a plan. But that's only on Optus.

Grabber, 27 Nov 2008As a phone the iphone is useless they have even put the aerial in the wrong end of the phoneActually the 4 aerials (GSM, GPS, Wireless HSDPA) are built into the circuit board, this was why they use a plastic back on the iPhone 3G as a metal back would interfere with them.
The iPhone section is over there ----->
