No MMS, no video recording, no settings on the camera, no radio, no video calling, no bluetooth file transfer and the headset support doesn't even support A2DP. Not to mention the incredibly limited options for transferring music onto the phone in the first place. I'm sorry, but the ONLY things the iPhone has going for it is the UI and the web browsing experience, and without flash or java support the web browsing ain't even as good as it first appears to be. But to call the iPhone a great multimedia phone is utterly laughable. Sorry guys, but it just don't cut it...
I can't believe they're calling the iPhone a multimedia phone. More to the point - I can't believe they're calling it a GOOD multimedia phone. And the headset support doesn't even support A2DP. Not to mention the incredibly limited options for transferring music onto the phone in the first place. I'm sorry, but the ONLY things the iPhone has going for it is the UI and the web browsing experience, and without flash or java support the web browsing ain't even as good as it first appears to be. But to call the iPhone a great multimedia phone is utterly laughable. Sorry guys, but it just don't cut it. And before people start going on about how most of these shortcomings can be fixed with a future firmware update - it shouldn't NEED it. If the iPhone's supposed to be a multimedia device, surely you should be able to use the multimedia features straight out the box, instead of having to spend ages farting about with it to make it do things it really shoulda been able to do from the off...
does anyone own a white iphone 3g?
ilike the white version better but i heard the scrathes will show up alot more on the white than on the black
White is so slick,, comment on what colour you have/want and why?
It's a great phone but first price is too high and secondly No SMS, No video recording is miness point.
2mp camrea is not good.
ABC, 24 Aug 2008High price of iPhone could be a spoiler in india. Bharti Airtel and Vodafone have priced the 8... morei do feel that there are no changes from the original iphone. The first iphone was a lot better than the present one.
what phone would i enjoy using the most?
i have a nokia 6500 slide at the moment and i hate it!
Elegance and Functionality are the two things that splits people. If you love elegance and style and you have enough cash to burn, then iPhone's a very good choice, but if you want more functionality then choose from the wide variety of phones available here.For sure there's always one phone for you..
do not buy it its a rubish phone. I've made big mistake should buy samsung the best phone
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970yeh....dont be so prejudice.in fact in the Philippines the phones they have are far more advance compared o where i am.........

Anonymous, 24 Aug 2008i guess youre the type who brings a backpack everyday for your digital cam and laptop just to ... moreUmmm, I have a car. My laptop stays in the trunk of my car. Iphone users are usually the ones who can afford cars =) My digital cam stays in my fashionable messenger bag all the time just in case I need to use it. If it's for a quick picture taking, I can use my iphone to take that picture. But I'd still rather use my Canon camera for better results. Unlike you, I don't settle for just ok quality pictures from camera phones. Iphone users can afford to buy very good quality digital cameras to get better pictures. I feel sorry for people who capture special moments using their camera phones, ewwwwww.
SuS One, 24 Aug 2008Now I have to serve you back of your lack of info plus your passion for half a good phone(just... moreFiddly? The iphone has the most responsive and fastest UI. Even professional critics would admit to that, so please.
Yes, the iphone does have one of the best audio levels. You see it does not try to be the loudest and compromise quality like most phones do by toning up the volume settings to loud and end up getting distorted sound quality, then you complain again that it's distorted, lol. W/ the iphone, even when it's on max, the speaker does not get distored, unless of course you are playing a low quality audio file.
Burns? Ok, let's be silly and say that LCD screens do burn. For a screen to burn, that means you paused the picture for too long. What where you doing? Stared on the same iphone screen for 2 hours? LOL.
I promise it won't scratch unless you abuse the phone.
Copy and pasting is nice to have, and of course we wish that the iphone would have it in their future updates. But we can obviously live w/out it. This is a valid complain.
Well maybe if you close some applications there wouldn't be so much things happening at the same time. And that never really happens with the iphone. Except of course if you have the mp3 on and doing other things at the same time. So far it does not lag. Iphone users have macs or PC's at home. We did not buy the iphone to use it as an external hard drive, lol.
LCD screen do not burn, plasma screen do, period. Don't twist the truth.
To each his own. There is no hard rule on how you should operate your device. I text holding the iphone w/ my left hand and my right index finger to type. When I make a phone call, I just use 1 hand, and use my thumb to press on the numbers. But it does not have to be the same for everyone. I can't believe that I even have to explain this very elementary thing to you, lol.
Well itunes work for us quite well. We feel safe using it. Everything is almost automatic.
Go to Nokia, SE & Samsung forums and see what they have to say about problems accessing YouTube. I used to have the N95, so I know.
Excess data usage? On email? LOL. Never happens. They probably went over their minutes or text messages limit.
My gosh, why would I surf to the net for the weather when there is already a quick application for the weather. You're really impractically weird, lol.
"Who cares about radio your holding an ipod lol." Exactly, so I hope people would stop complaining about the iphone not having FM radio =)
Those who want 5mp on their phones don't really know how megapixels work. It's a hype among camera phones. 2mp is enough for a camera phone to take spur of the moment pics. And on video calling, PLEASE, I have not seen a single person using that feature since that feature came out. My sister asked me to buy her the LG phone with that feature, and guess what, she never used it, LOL.
You really expect us to believe you when you say that 10 to 12 iphone buyers returned to your store with issues? LOL. If that is really the case in all stores, believe me, Iphone have already stopped producing phones, LOL. Or let's say that's true. It's probably because there are a thousand of people who bought the iphone from your store. While two people bought a Blackberry and two of them also came back, LOL. So yes, that's about right. LOL. Also, why are you even selling the iphone in your store?
I never said that the iphone is most complete phone. The iphone is simply great in what it does (phone, ipod and internet). And now, it's even getting better with the ability to add more applications as you go.
TIRI, 24 Aug 2008IPHONE UNLOCKED price $300 at this site:
this is mission impo... moreWas really to place an order until I've read this line on their website.... http://www.phoneassureltd.com/info.html
"Our minimum order quantity 20units and shipping for the whole product is $90"
despite the fact I don't really need 20 of them I love the price... wonder gol legit they are?!
The iPhone is really great. I don't care about the camera, got a K800i for that. Plus there are apps already on the internet for videorecording with an iPhone.
The bluetooth perhaps is a downside but what do you send with it? Funny ringtones is all I do, I can just download those if i wish to.
Besides the great touch interface and the fast speed it offers for an OS Phone, I like the software possibility's. With it's populairity more and more developpers will make software for it I think. Wether if it's allowed by Apple or not you can put it on your iPhone (jailbreak it). And that way you can improve the iPhone again and again, with futures like: copy pasting / editting word documents / realtime navigation.
I think this will all be available sooner or later, perhaps even brought up with Apple software updates. So I'm enjoying my iPhone now and I have enough pleasure in it to wait for the new software programme's.
Does anyone know if this is true...
If you sign up to an 18 month contract to get the new iphone 3g...
02 will upgrade you to the latest model of iphone whenever released even if your contact is not up for renewal???
I agree with SuS One the iphone is soo over rated come on apple where are all the today, updated features already.
its been out in other countries for about a year now too so they should have known we wanted good new technology
2 Megapixel pffft.
No bluetooth transfers
have they fixed the bugs yet. I have heard some people are having software issues.
has anyone got any feedback on there software issues?
