its cool and sexy phone i ad never used. but it lacks a lot in third party applications and dont have mp3 support........
Hi, i'm from Indonesia and i have played around with my friend's iPhone 2G.
So i want to give some comments about iPhone :
1.It's an iPod with a built-in phone (Not a Phone with a MP3 Player capability).
2.An old 2MP Camera?? Without Flash and AF?? Well, the camera is not the main function on iPhone. The camera is just a bonus from Steve Jobs. But the camera is good enough i think.
3.No FM radio??? Who need FM radio?? I use Nokia 6233 but i never use the radio. So who cares....
4.No Forward SMS / Copy & Paste Function??? That's true, BUT there's 3rd party aplications which can do that. ex.iSMS
5.It's very easy to use, i love it very much.
6.It has a GPS receiver, but there's not a Turn by Turn Navigation software. Yet...
But there's a software which reveal the iPhone GPS function, it's iPhone GPS kit.
7.The Software's Free. (u should jailbreak 1st)
8. And much more...
9. And much more...
My friend who has an iPhone also has a Nokia E90. He said that iPhone is more amazing than E90 beside the E90's Turn by Turn Navigation (Nokia Maps). The E90 is quite boring than iPhone.
-iPhone is a very simple Device. Any1 can use it. Unlike Windows Mobile. (No offense here. But i was a Winmob Fanatic since 2002, but the iPhone has change my opinion)
-iPhone has Limited Features like lack of Flash/AF, Radio, etc. But who cares... It's still gorgeous.
-The system is very fast and responsive. (u can browse 3000 picts less than 1 minute)
-It doesnt hav DELIVERY REPORT. That's annoying, but i think i can live with that.
-iPhone produces CLEAR Sound via headphones, it wins over my Walkman NW-S200 for The Sound Quality. BUT iPhone lacks on BASS, iPhone produces more natural sound than Walkman. But still the walkman's sound quality is very good and Walkman produces MORE DEEP BASS.
For Sound Quality :
Walkman : 8 iPhone : 9
For Bass Quality :
Walkman : 9 iPhone : 6.5
BUT WHO CARES ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES....
I STILL PREFER IPHONE over NOKIA E90.
I Dont have an iPhone yet. But i've ordered one, it will comes on January2009. When my friend go back to Indonesia from USA.
ps. i dont work 4 Steve Job. I just a college student, this's just my opinions. That's all. Thank you.
REMEMBER : IPHONE IS AN IPOD WITH A PHONE FUNCTION, THE CAMERA IS A BONUS.

i use iPhone and 6500c right now
but i used to use P1 i, n95, n73. sometimes i borrow my friend's HTC pro, diamond, also E71..
none of them give me pleasure like the iPhone gives me

love the design and true the volume is better then the iphone
but the bat life...
such an annoying phone since i have to charge it every day..
i can't store my music and video there...
for me it is just "another phone" while i phone is one great phone..
use vibrate and you won't really care even if the sound of your iPhone is not heard since you can feel the vibrate...

i've tried and experience how sux it is
really trust me if u use an iPhone and try using the pro iu'll hate it.
first the screen is freakinly small
too small for a touch screen phone
the accelerometer is not as responsive as the iphone
if u say it is a multimedia phone it means u never use it..
it is a winmo phone made for work,, none of the aspects is making it a good multimedia phone..
mediocre performance video and music player, how can it become a good multimedia phone..
the camera works average not impressive, besides im not using my phone to take pics since i use my compact Olympus..
it lags crash and freeze a lot,, read me A LOT

you heard bout or have seen the n93 or n93i, right? both phones designs are camcorder like. optical zoom with, ofcourse, carl zeiss optics are included in the camera along with other camera functions. awesome devices for taking pics. how do i know this? i also own an n93i.
i prefer an all-around cell phone that has the functionality of an internet, great camera, and a phone for the convenience of carrying one device.
that's cool if your co workers chose free iphones. again, it is a matter of preference.
Windows mobile and symbian phones are also fast. I own the iphone, moto q9h, n95, and n93i.

there are two more phones with optical zoom : the n93 and n93i. Both cell phones are built like a little cam-corder.
yeah, optical zoom is better than digital zoom. however, with digital zoom you can always edit the photos.
that's cool that you prefer the iphone. i prefer both my n95 and n93i over my iphone. as i had stated, it is matter of preference.

Does the GPS work without any data plan? For example if I buy an unlock one from ebay, not from AT&T. Thanks in advance for reply.
I got bored with just listening to music on other phones, thought I'd try making some:-
Which one's to try?
Hi does anyone no how to set a song as ring & SMS tone or can you only set the perinstalled one
Hi i just got my Iphone 3G todayn it is getting abit warm on the back is anyone else warm too and does anyone no how to Jailbreak it

Additionally your zeiss optics albeit created by a great lens manufacturer just are not going to provide you with the ability to make your sensor any better. I highly doubt that anyone wanting to take any serious pictures is going to count on a camera phone for anything. If all you do is take pictures to post to your facebook account that is one thing but I seriously doubt you got any quality shots of a wedding using your n95.
With regards to what phones ATT is releasing my company just switched to them as their provider and every single person who was offered a phone opted to get the iphone. Back in college I used to work at an ATT store and was amazed at the amount of terrible phones they asked us to sell. I went for 4 years without renewing a contract with them because they couldn't supply a decent phone. I would much rather pay full price for a quality phone.
Windows mobile devices aren't nearly as easy to use as the iphone.

Picture this "My battery is running low, can I borrow your Nokia charger?"
"@#%$ where do I plug it in???"
Why does it have micro-USB, not just that, micro-usb incompatible with other micro-usb phones (e.g. Motorola V9).
1GB non-expandable memory.
Where do I put my other 1600 songs?
3G yet no video call (hang on that sounds familiar).
A tiny little screen.
S40 so the OS has nowhere near the power of S60, WinMO or OSX phones.

Digital zoom and correction (which is why these phones are so slow in taking pictures) is a poor substitute.
My kid's are using 2 of my old phone's, SonyEricsson K800 (3.2MP xenon flash) and N82 (5MP xenon flash).
I prefer to use my iPhone, I find one handed use is easy especially when it is in it's dock in my car, I can just flick through the various icons and touch them, which is a lot easier than digging through the convoluted menu's of the N82 and a lot easier to see at a quick glance.
The sound volume on calls isn't an issue at all.
