Iphone just like the Nokia arte great hardware nothing inside and pricey.
SIN - you just lost your bet. I bought my iPhone for cash.
It makes me laugh how many people post their opinions about iPhone when its clear they never even try this phone, how it works, how sleek interface is, how easy to use it is.
You can buy Nokia N96, and use 10% of its functions, I prefer iPhone with pleasure to acomodate 90% if not 100% of those.
And the quality of build. I will not go back to squeaky Nokias.
And the price - £160 for 16GB version, a lot of people can offord that. No more like year ago N95 was for £200 with much worse contract price plans.
There is a flock of people slagging iPhone just for a sake of doing it. Good luck.

Most phones out there have qvga screens, so why are you complaining with half vga? Iphone's 3.5 half vga still looks much better than the Diamond's tiny 2.8 vga. As for the Xperia, that phone is not even out yet. Just proves that you are just rambling nonsense. How desperate of you.

What do you mean you can't use 3g with the iphone? I use it everyday when I go online.

oh man .. u are really stu_pid...
bluetooth transfer is essential !!
imagine that u... moreIf bt transfer is essential, all those millions of people who bought the iphone would've gotten rid of their iphones by now, so obviously, it's not essential.
If a friend wants a photo or logo from my iphone, I can email it them. As for the songs, they need to learn to download songs themselves. I didn't buy those songs just so my freeloader friends can get it for free. All my friends have email, so I do not have to worry about those people who doesn't. Seriously, who does not have email in the US? Email is part of your internet plan. You will not be charged extra for using email. Why not use it?
Video calls have been an available feature to some phones for a while now, buy I do never saw anyone using it. Why would I cry over that?
Ummm, why do I have to show my friends where I am? I've been to concerts, and I never really saw anyone making video calls. Also, your phone might get confiscated where video taking is not allowed in some concerts. Why would I stress over that? You obviously have not used the camera of the iphone. It takes good pictures. You do not need 8mp on a phone, unless your phone has a display size of 47 inches. You can transfer photos to your iphone. I do that all the time. You obviously don't have an iphone. As for the 16gb memory, that is more than enough for a phone. Get an external hard drive if you need file storage. I had many problems web browsing when I had my N95 and HTC Diamond, so the iphone is still better even without java.
Ummmm, why would I even keep the list of my last calls? I already knew they called.
Ummm, why would I change the battery? I just bought it. Do you change the battery of your phone every day? lol.
What? Iphone is slower than how it is in commercials? Well guess what? Other phones are even much slower in person than in their commercials =)
Feel free to continue mr iphone hater =)

It's actually better than when I was with Tmobil. I am in LA, I don't know about other locations, but AT&T has pretty good signal coverage here in the US.

The iphone offers other more important features that we could care less if you cannot send your picture to us, lol.
BT is only one option. File sharing does not end if you do not have BT. Email is still the main media for sending files. Sending files via BT is not a daily chore for the majority of phone owners. The iphone also has many qualities & features that are not found on a lot of other modern phones. It's a matter of which feature or qualities are more useful and important to the majority of users.

Wait im not done please someone add some feedback about how amazing there reception is come on you Apples tell us how good your reception is and are you guys in 3G coverage when in buildings and underground just for example eg. waiting for a train or in a toilet downstairs. You cant even look up your porn to have a bat because of the reception when your in an underground toilet hahahahaha. Amazing that iphone!!!
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2008Here are my iPhone 3g pictures that I promised that I would put up on my blog a few days ago. ... moreYou are lying. The iphone may only have a 2mp camera, but it does take decent pictures comparable to 5mp ones.
Here's my take on the 5 things that disturbs you the most with iphone.
"Cannot send or receive MMS" - I think the iphone can recieve mms files but not send. I really don't know why people complain about this with the iphone when they also limit sending mms because of the extra charges and end up emailing photos anyway.
"You can not forward SMS" - Now this would be nice if the iphone has this feature, but really, how often do you need to forward a text message?
"Cannot copy and past texts" - Same thing, this would be nice to have but you don't really copy and paste texts every day.
"Very poor 3G coverage" - But it does work, and it does have faster internet compared to any phones out there. I used to have the N95, and it's not even close to the iphone's great internet browser. And you are wrong, I have the 3G iphone and you can be on a call and on the web at the same time.
Look, the iphone may have not inlcuded some helpful features like sms forwarding and copy and pasting, but it does offer a lot more of other great features that makes it worth it. So, if you cannot live without sms forwarding and copy and pasting, then I guess the iphone is not for you, but it does not mean it's a bad phone.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2008wYEf, well why would you need a laptop man? I understand that you were ironic but.. Don't get ... morethe screen resoltuion on the iphone is useless
the screen size is 3.5 inches and it manages half VGA!!
look at the HTC diamond, 640x480 pixels, 2.8inch screen
take a look at the Xperia, 800x400 pixels, 3.0 inch screen.
the iphone, 480x320...3.5 inch screen
stop falling for, as steve jobs puts it 'that gorgeous 3.5 inch screen'.
The power of suggestion has truly taken it's toll with this one.
ok I been reading the previous posts and omg its so boring everyone that wants an iphone is winning for sympathy from the other like deep down they know its just a phone nothing else
some one said if you want something else go buy sony or nokia, but everyone its like nooo iphone its the best ok ok but everyone knows its fauls too so if you like ok buy it its your money, belive me Im going to sleep tonight just as fine if you do, we all want to have the best but we cant all have the same point of view, anyway there are people that think of mobile phones as unnecesary as for them they only want to recieve calls,
so quit complaining ok, if you want more jus t look for it, there will be the one
Any comments out there: has the software been fixed? i.e. any crashes, hangs experienced with this improved model?
Feature set and design don't compensate for crashing SW. Thanks!
it looks amazing no wonder it has become a fashion statement....so am saving money to get one for myself very soon,hope it won't be a disappointment.
Everybody made the 3g iphone to be one of the best handets around , unfortunately it does,nt live up to its so called reputation.Its only a shame that every other company is striving to exeed in technology where iphones arent THERE JUST GETTING WORSE . How do you call an Iphone 3g when you cant use it ????? As a consumer i personally am very disappointed.
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2008I love this phone. It's the only thing I'll need to look hip! Never mind its low tech camera,... morewYEf, well why would you need a laptop man? I understand that you were ironic but.. Don't get too excited please!! Well yes that is also a flawback that it is not with miniusb.. So you'll have to have a spare usb cable.. But for me this totally replaces laptop, and i didn't understand that part why would you take a laptop? If you want an fm radio then, too bad, go cry.. And if you do care about sending files over bluetooth so much, why are you whining here? If you want fm radio, bluetooth file sending and.. a laptop? all in one then becouse of those two first parts this phone is not for you, so i don't really understand what are you actually doing here? Go get another phone man! But the iphone owners can deal without fm radio and bluetooth file sharing, if you don't, then this phone is not for you..
Btw a friend of my father's, who is a houseseller(?) has an iphone (not 3g) and he said this totally replaces his laptop and he couldnt live without it! Taking pictures and uploading those to internet is not a problem!(and texting in net too)... Well imo this phone is more multimedia than any nokia or whatever becouse of its big and nice screen and tv-out, i don't know any nokia currently available with bigger screen (well 2,8" is the biggest afaik in their advanced "multimedia" phones) but wait! IT HAS QVGA RESOLUTION! ARRGH YOU CAN SEE THE PIXELS, IT HURTS MY EYES MAN! I am not an anti-nokia or any other company guy.. But man, qvga in a 2.8" screen is JUST TOO MUCH!
I love this phone. It's the only thing I'll need to look hip! Never mind its low tech camera, lack of standard, connectivity and file sharing features. Plus the fact that Music Store is not currently running here in the country. IT LOOKS COOOOOOL!! =)
The UI is to die for. It has a nice shiny edge and the calculator is absolutely awesome (where else can you get a calculator that cool?!) and the UI is to die for.... And did I mention, the UI is to die for? Well, the UI is to die for! =) It totally rocks and justifies US$900 (with no plan) even when there's absolutely better equipped phones out there.
And to the guy who said who cares about lack of blue tooth blah blah blah... Yeah! I totally dig you, I bring my laptop, camcorder, walkman radio and spare USB cable with wherever I go. I am most comfortable with a backpack too. ;)
