Get an iPod touch and jailbreak it. Makes a great PDA. That takes care of the 90% of the "iPhone experience" without all the BS data plans and dropped calls. You have to carry another device, but it isn't like the iPhone is the best all-around phone either. Then get a better phone. Esp one with better reception, battery life, ZERO proprietary software that crashes your PC, and uncrippled Bluetooth. iPhone makes a great "toy" for iPosers who think they are cool and have ZERO game that needs a cool-looking phone to attract women.

nvr heard anything about apple bad quality product be4
all my apple product is we... moreTo Vil. I agree with you. I've seen a lot of touchscreen phones that came out trying to topple the iphone, but all has failed, even the Omnia. There are still more coming out, like the Pixon, Renoir, Nokia Tube, etc. But among all of them, the unexpected BB Storm might turn out to be the iphone's closest match. Although I still think that the iphone still has the edge here in the US. I particularly don't care about wifi, but a lot of people make a big deal of it, and the Storm does not have wifi, so that could be its major downside.
Apple will not rest on its laurels yet. They'll come up with something soon, and other phonemakers will again dread it. It's amazing how Apple turned things around for their favor. They've lost their popularity for such a long time already. They must be doing something right, and it all started with the ipod. Great concept. And I think that concept will take them to even greater heights. But I'm still kind of shy in getting a MAC. I'm so used to PC, but spywares and viruses and worms are just getting on my nerves that it's very tempting to try out a MAC.

no change in UI,, no fun
some good application
but working not as fast as the iPho... moresorry bro...but compared to the iphone, the nokia express music packs more features. even the camera of the nokia express music has a higher megapixel with dual led flash, therefore the large touchscreen is not a waste...unlike the iphone. also, the google phone is goin to cripple the iphone.
check out nokia.com for the nokia 5800 express music's specs.
Let's be real - No product matches Macintosh application system.Others phones have everything,iPhone limits their applications in the phone but 3rd party software is abundance.For first time users,it is sleek and ultimate sexy.For me,I have been using many brands Nokia,LG,Samsung,Sony and the works but somehow I find the phone that fits all normally will crank up much faster.I still have my LG Shine and Motorola V1 which to me is perfect but there is no doubt iPhone catches the eye....
ceejay, 08 Oct 2008Ive used 3G iPhone for a week now. Not really impressed with battery life. Apple should be ash... morereally?
i think u get refurbished one then...
my iPhone has excellent battery life,,
my iPhone stand for 4 days if i'm not using it very much and 2 days when i use it a lot,, calling, texting, mp3s.. if u use it for a lot of web browsing it does use a lot of battery...
as long as i know apple's product always has good battery life, and all apple's product that i has have good battery life.
Ive used 3G iPhone for a week now. Not really impressed with battery life. Apple should be ashamed at what they offer. You are able to install apps legally but thats it. Apple decided let the programmers come up with cool apps and we[apple] will just make the device.
It is a good application device, not a good phone as all importance has been given to looks and features of everything but messaging and calling.
Final verdict: If you're going through the phase in life where you need tonnes of 3rd party applications on your phone but hardly ever txt or call anyone, this phone is for you. If you are a frequent txter or a caller, you will be supremely dissappointed at how non user-friendly this device is. My suggesstion to you is to get an iPod touch, load it with a gazillion apps and use a smartphone or something.
therock, 08 Oct 2008the nokia 5800 touchscreen can also bring down the iphone.no way,,
no change in UI,, no fun

If you are thinking of buying an iPhone, DONT! Especially from Vodafone. We bought it for business applications, it has never worked, no bluetooth, ever! data runs 50kb packats all day every day! that heats up the phone, and the battery lasts 2 hours, if you're lucky! Then when you try to get assistance from Vodafone, it has taken 47 hours on the phone, 19 calls and 3 months, still no action! The offer? they will replace the iPhone valued at $915, with a Blackberry8100 , valued at $275 !!
Checking that phone feedback, it is also a Lemon!!
I absolutely love this phone! before i got to use this phone i hated it, and sure enough after i used one i fell in love with it. It has so many useful features. i recommend this phone to everyone.
Terrible phone. Over hyped. My gosh, the only good thing about this phone is the user interface and the screen size. The rest is below par. I'm selling it off next week. What a regret. Even my 3 year old Nokia phone has slightly better features than the Iphone 3G. Sigh.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2008Decent phone.. bought it on launch day and sold it to a friend after I got totally bored with ... moreRespect man.
Xperia X1 its the best of the bests, and 5800 touch screen also.
+1 ; ))
The iPhone uses a data connection to download the map as it tracks your progress using the assisted GPS receiver. No internet connection means no map.
Very Very IMPORTANT!!!
Can this phone navigate without using internet or Wifi?? Or this is like its ansestor which needs internet connection to navigate?? Does the built in navigator works properly without internet?? Very important for me?

Does it have caller ID? Here in Brasil, on Blackberrys and iphones when you put the country and area codes before the #'s, the caller ID just doen't work... It's ridicosly
