colin, 02 Nov 2008i have the i phone3g and the 1st i phone i definately would advise the phone the qwerty touch ... moreWhoa! Punctuation please! It's very hard to read a sentence that comes across as a non-stop wall of text that would leave you breathless reading it IRL!
I've had my iPhone for a few months now and I love it just as much as i did when i first got it. But accessing iTunes store on the iPhone is a real pain in the azz, it always says you need to connect to Wifi however I have a data plan so I would rather use that to access it. I don't know how many of you are in Australia, but most Wifi services here aren't free.
Anyone found a way of getting around this?
i have the i phone3g and the 1st i phone i definately would advise the phone the qwerty touch board is genious i have a motorola Q9h and after only using that for 5 days i found it hard to use my razr and razr2 and prada fone and moto z6 so i am getting all qwerty keyboard phones including the new prada fone it should be called the prada2 in ireland and the uk the iphone 3g was realeased pay as you go which is without a contract in ireland it had free wi-fi for 12 months if you have the iphone original trade it for the iphone 3g its way better and faster plus get the new ipod touch its so coooooooooool i love that too
If you're stuck between choosing the Bold 9000 or iphone3G my experience may help you! I had the BB Bold 9000 with o2 for one week and was extremely impressed with its ease of use, applications, keyboard, screen - you know, we've all read the outstanding reviews and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Sadly after a few days use I noticed some bugs appearing with the software - I was unable to delete some SMS messages, they would only finally go by taking out the battery. The bluetooth was unable to send files without dropping the connection but did receive them ok. We tried this with multiple devices with the same result. While connecting my headset it dropped the connection and my headset switched off. I thought the charge may have gone but the headset had actually been damaged in some way and would not switch back on resulting in me having to buy a new bluetooth headset. The browser failed to impress me too I have to say! I took the phone in to o2 and as always the staff there were very helpful but despite over an hour of calls to a BlackBerry Rep and an unsuccessful software upgrade the problem not was not resolved. A different unit was brought out to replace it but similar problems were detected immediately with the bluetooth. I can't tell you how disappointed I felt after weeks of deliberating between the BB Bold and the iphone I had determined that the Bold was the one for me. The staff at o2 suggested I tried the iphone, after all I could always return it within the 14 day new contract cool off period if I was dissatisfied, so reluctantly I took the iphone home. The user interface and stunning screen blew me away immediately. The photo's taken with its 2 meg camera look fantastic viewed on the phone's photo application even in full screen mode and on my computer, much better than my old 5 meg camera phone which really amazed me. E-mail was set up in seconds and the bowser surpasses all my expectations, its fantastic. I could go on but as sad as I was to see my BB Bold go I am infinitely more impressed with the iphone. I'm pleased really that I had the opportunity to try both. If you're a pure business user I can see the attraction to any BlackBerry device. For me its a combination of business and pleasure - The iphone has mixed the two with astonishing results, much more effectively than the Bold. I know its difficult to choose which phone (or multimedia device which also makes phone calls) to choose when comparing side by side so I hope my experience helps you decide if you're stuck between the two devises like I was!
MULTITASKING FACTS :
iPhone 2.0 SDK: The No Multitasking Myth
March 13th, 2008
Daniel Eran Dilger
Certain pundits have developed a rash of malignant concerns about iPhone 2.0’s SDK. The first issue they’re scratching at is the iPhone’s apparent inability to run multiple applications at once. The suggestion is that the iPhone is a multitasking impaired appliance just like the original Mac or the Palm Pilot, and unlike the supposed multitasking powerhouse that is Windows CE, which powers Windows Mobile devices. That’s wrong, here’s why.
The iPhone is Unix.
The first clue into discovering how the iPhone works is a look at its core OS. The iPhone runs Apple’s same kernel as Mac OS X: a hybrid of Mach and BSD that hosts a standard Unix subsystem. It supports multiple concurrent processes and multiple users.
At this point, it’s useful to point out that the Palm OS was also built on top of a multitasking kernel, but Palm only licensed it for use from Kadak as a single-tasking environment. That made the Palm OS very much like the classic Mac OS from the mid 80s: to launch a second application, the first had to be shutdown.
Apple doesn’t face the same problem with the iPhone; it owns the iPhone’s kernel and faces no other external technical limitations to prevent multitasking. The ability of the iPhone to answer a call, pull up the Maps app while the call is in progress, and then follow a link to a web page before ending the call was demonstrated in one of its first advertisements.
The iPhone rings when browsing the web, music plays in the background while performing other tasks, and can check emails periodically in the background. It can clearly multitask.
Well, one thing's for sure, and that this phone is going to sell like hotcakes this holiday season.
My apologies for the people to whom I may look like an anti-iPhone person here, nothing could be farther from the truth.
I will choose the iPhone over any Nokia, Sony Ericsson, or Windows Mobile device out there.
I just had to point out my real-life experiences and troubles of how I was so used to having apps running in the background that doing Alt-Tab was something I was so accustomed to.
Even if the iPhone can't do the things that a SmartPhone can, that does not mean that it sucks. It's one of the best devices out there at the moment and it deserves a highly recommended status.
It's THE perfect gift this holiday season.
Now, im sure for myself that I'll be getting this one by this month.
I had borrowed my friend's iPhone 3G, and even if this phone lack some basic features. I like it very much. This phone is really classy.
I have nokia phone which had some features that iPhone 3G is lacking.
So no need to seek those features that iPhone are lacking.
This will be my new toy.

Anonymous, 31 Oct 2008..do you need to pay for a plan to use the internet?Yes, if u use the 3G Internet, cause your network provides u the internet. (That's why is called "network provider").
No, you don't have to pay if u use the WireLess function.
Has anyone got Tap Tap Revenge, Nine Inch Nails version?
It looks ok but you have to pay for it, not like the free versions.
Trent Reznor picked the songs.
