I've had my iPhone since it came out and it has just been a catalogue of problems, I'll list the ones I can remember below. Constant call dropping, GPS barely works, maps works 50% of the time and usually uses 3G to work out where it is, try using it in a car, a reasonable idea, practically impossible. Applications, constantly quitting. Many web pages won't load, videos or music, mail won't allow hotmail except through a third part work around. The camera is unusable, shaky gloomy conditions aren't allowed, no night shots. Texts can't be forwarded, no passing on of jokes you want to share, surprising in the social networking era. No picture messages either, another bit of fun taken away. Sending texts can't be cancelled. Music applications (not ipod) quit when you get a text, transferring contacts is impossible. It doesn't remember field data information, most annoying when surfing online, it also has a very, very curious ability to go from full 3G reception to 2G (not even EDGE) immediately as you press Safari, uncanny. I'd say about 50% of the time it decides not to vibrate when a call or text arrives. Very short battery life, that drains when any apps are used. You can't set a task reminder without going into the calendar, a laborious process. Maps misses really vital information like Motorway services. When I'm at home I have to switch the WiFi off if I use my laptop because it steals the IP address and kicks me off, despite it being set up to do that dynamically. Itunes won't synch properly between it and my laptop, it has already deleted bought tracks. No 3G, no voicemail. No indication of whether the last call to a certain person was incoming or outgoing, no date and time on individual texts and calls. And, after all that, it doesn't even look that good, all the product real estate that could have been exploited has not been, it lacks character, a pebble. Such a shame, it could have been so good.
I heard that when u r using wifi o 3g battery dies faster, is that true? i'm asking this because i'm thinking of getting one of these, i have a p1i from SE phones, should i change it?
the dude is offering an iphone 3g 16 gb for my p1i i don't know what to do :(((

d[-_-]b, 28 Nov 2008You can't actually get an unlocked iPhone. Again unless you buy an jailbroken one from overseas.
Actually, you CAN buy an original Apple unlocked phone if you buy it here in Italy.
The law here doesn't allow phones to be operator locked.
And guess what, it costs the same. LOL
its not nessecary no front cam no video call, stupid answer mr anony...
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.
