Seriously, does anyone actually do video calls?
I've had it on my last three phones and found it to be a useless novelty.

i am sick of it what you could and should and what is beter .
There is no beter phone than IPHONE but is to not a video camera of a still camera it is an internet device and it is THE BEST........
why should i buy an iPhone 3G, i would rather buy an ipod touch + a better phone than buy an iPhone. it will not cost me that much..coz the price of an iPhone is too high..what more can it offer from ipod touch other than a 2mp cam and being a fone? duh?
ViL, 19 Nov 2008don't u know how many people thinks that omnia is really bad,
the hardware is built poorly,, ... moreViL,Yr mannerism in taking up a comment against yr likings is noted & appreciated. If all of us could take up Constructive denigration in the spirit of it, the world would become a better place to live in.
As I have already avowed in my previous msg, Iphone was the trail blazer in the area of touch phones. Of course it has certain features which are far ahead of the competition,still. Nevertheless assimilate the following iphone shortcomings and u will appreciate my observation.
1)No video calls over the 3G network
2)Camera has neither auto focus nor any settings at all.Only 2 MP. Absolutely no chance that u could compare with 5MP shooters, the like of Omnia. Of course I have seen the Iphone gallery & am not impressed. (No Offence pls)
3)Bluetooth support limited to headset use only
4)No office document editor
5)You cannot sync Notes and TO-DOs
By the way I am not a businessman but am a professional in another vocation. Play with yr choice & enjoy. After all it is not a bad choice.

Back ups of the iPhone are kept as well, which can be restored to another iPhone, if Joe lost his and had to replace it.
This phone is absolutly fantastic - OUT OF THE BOX no it does not have the features and fuctinality but most of them can simply be rectified with an added 3rd party application (MMS, Video Recording, Voice Dialing etc). If you want to "tinker" with a phone and customise everything to your spec there is no OS on a phone.
To be honest this phones potential will only be reached by a Gadget Guru - Your average Joe is better off getting something else.
Why OSX is better.
Can you upgrade your N95 to Symbian OS v9.3, Series 60 rel. 3.2?
Where would you get it from?
All iPhones can be updated to the latest software and firmware versions.
Can you update your old Windows Mobile 5 device to 6.1, where do you get the update from?
How long does it take the update from Microsoft to be customised by your device manufacturer and prepared for YOUR device?
All iPhones have access to the latest updates as soon as Apple releases them all you have to do is plug it into iTunes.
What happens if your phone software becomes corrupted, by say sloppy 3rd party apps?
Most phones - repair centre
iPhone - plug into iTunes, restore.
Just a few things to consider.

stonecold, 20 Nov 2008well said.
again, american technology is not up to par with technologies of other countries... moreIf it wasn't for American technology, mobile phones (if they existed) would be as large as suitcases and full of radio valves.
All of the Windows Mobile devices are running an OS that IS American Technology.
As far as the camera's in phones go, I wasn't aware of any using film.
Guess what CCD = American Technology, CMOS = American technology.
I fail to see what the point of your argument is.
Maybe if I do a voice search in Google... hey do any other phones do that?
Dazza, 19 Nov 2008Can you down load blackberry software on to the iPhoneno because it has already an e-mail push service. //sotera

the iphone's design may be nice and the interface is brilliant, but it is incomplete.

sure the iphone's touchscreen is brilliant and revolutionized the mobile market, it's spec doesn't surpass the specs of other high end devices. even the two year old n93i, which is built like a mini camcorder, beats the iphone in terms of functionality.
revolution is gone. now comes evolution..nokia 5800 xm, xperia1, innov8, n96, the lg touchscreens,,,etc..etc.
ofcourse, the iphone is an american made. the designs and programs is made by apple.

you definitely missed my point. i am talking about an overall performance and funtionality of a cell phone device.
i got bored with my iphone, even though it is jailbreak.
omnia, touchpro, experia1...although those have the win mo, the specs of those devices surpasses the iphone.
