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.

Certain pu... moreI think he means applications requiring a task manager to exit from so you don't keep running up a phone bill, by using data in the background without being aware of it.
I like the way I can leave 4 or 5 pages open at once in Safari and when I flick between them they refresh, updating the sites, it's handy for news.
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.
In Steve's keynote demo he showed a bunch on multitasking with the iPhone.
Thing like listening to music which fades down when a call comes and looking up stuff on the internet and sending emails while talking on the phone.
So yeah it can do that kind of stuff.
You should also know that multitasking depends also from the network, not from the phone alone, in 3G you can do a lot more than on edge as you need bandwidth...
iLUVZtehIPOWNZ, 01 Nov 2008How ironic is it that you say "unparalleled performance" when the phone itself can't run impor... moreYeah, it's a pity you have to switch the music off when you want to browse the web and calls, messages or emails don't come in because it can only do one thing at a time...
...hang on a minute, the iPhone can do this, hey what's it called when a phone does a few things at the same time?
before talking misinformation study and learn the way the real business world works and informs the public according to fed rules
CUPERTINO, California—October 21, 2008—Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2008 fourth quarter ended September 27, 2008. The Company posted revenue of $7.9 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.14 billion, or $1.26 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $6.22 billion and net quarterly profit of $904 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 34.7 percent, up from 33.6 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 41 percent of the quarter’s revenue.
In accordance with the subscription accounting treatment required by GAAP, the Company recognizes revenue and cost of goods sold for iPhone™ and Apple TV® over their economic lives. Adjusting GAAP sales and product costs to eliminate the impact of subscription accounting, the corresponding non-GAAP measures* for the quarter are $11.68 billion of “Adjusted Sales” and $2.44 billion of “Adjusted Net Income.”
what matters in business is your actual and potential future performance,
history in the market is ZERO
sorry that is the way reality is.

It's just annoying that Apple included all sorts of advanced features but cannot even include the basic features like received sms forwarding and mms sending... It sold a lot of units because of reasons other than it's features. The main reason it sold a lot of units is because of the Hype and superb advertising. and a lot of people are not yet buying it because they are hoping that the next iphone will include the basic features that were excluded in the 1st two iphones.

Please give credit where it is due, and applaud Apple for a job well done for the past few months, even outselling RIM (BlackBerry).
But saying that they're the third phone manufacturer in the world right now? That's a fanboy talking and trying to get away with it.
The iPhone is great. I always recommend it to anyone. It is THE phone at the moment. But when you know that it doesn't do half of the things you expected it to, you inform other people, like what I'm doing here.
As a business user, a SmartPhone (you know, one that multi-tasks) is essential. This is NOT a smartphone. Not even the WORLD BANK CHIEF can change facts.
