If anyone is thinking of buying an iphone then y'all should do y'all home work first before you get one,unfortunate for me i brought one and paid the price of regreting getting it. With the selling price of an iphone and the technology the've put in to it you'd think that it will have all basic function like sending pxt messages and customise ringtone and taking video plus more but it hasn't so personally i think the iphone is a total piece of s..t

The iphone is mainly for making calls, ipod, storing pictures, organizer & the internet. If your phone needs are beyond that. The iphone is not for you. It's as simple as that.
The iphone lacking features that suits your personal needs does not make it a defective phone. Yes, it does have features that could've been better, like forwarding text messages and copying and pasting, and I wish they'd fix that on their future firmware updates. But it does not make the iphone inoperable just because it can't forward a text message. It's fun typing on the iphone, so I don't mind sending a new message.
You are wrong in saying that you cannot send a text message to multiple recipients with the iphone. I don't know with the first one, but with the iphone 3G, you can send a text message to multiple recipients.
I find the spellcheck feature very helpful in correcting my typos. And I would say that it is 95% accurate. But yes, it would have been better if there's an option to turn it off, and again, I hope that Apple will address that issue on their future updates.
The 3G internet and the large VGA screen contributes to the fast draining of the battery. They can make the screen smaller and downgrade it to QVGA like the Omnia, but who would want that (maybe you)? They can remove 3G and stick to EDGE, and I wouldn't want that either. So there. Don't expect an 8 cylinder SUV to consume gas like a 4 cylinder car.
The speaker volume of the iphone is decent. If you find it pretty low, you probably need hearing aids. As for its vibrate mode, this is a cellphone, not a dildo.
As for your childish complaints on limited ringtone flexibility, go get a Nokia. Iphone really wouldn't mind =)
On internet. Of course there's still room for improvement, but it's still way better than the others. So I don't know why you're even complaining about that when you cannot find other phones who can match the iphone's web browsing capabilities. Your whining is pretty amazing.
On memory. 16 gb is more than enough, unless of course you do not have a dvd player and a tv set at home, or maybe your homeless, then I guess a 10,000gb phone would be what you need. And again, the iphone is not a business phone for people who transfer files a lot from cell to cell. Anyway, who does that regularly? I really don't know. I don't know about you, but I'd rather use my HP laptop for business than any phone =) Unless of course you cannot afford a laptop, then I guess you really do need a phone that can do everything. If that is your case, then I do understand your frustration. The iphone is really not for you.
2mp camera is good enough for phones. A xenon flash would help, but then again, does not really help a lot w/ the cell phones' design and size, or even the results. The iphone takes good pictures in good lighting conditions. If taking pictures is a big deal for you, I suggest that should not depend on camera phones, but rather get an SD Canon standalone camera, then transfer those pictures into your iphone. They'd look so great on the iphone's big screen.
You should've waited for the Omnia. Or, you could still buy the Omnia. It's unlocked. You can put in your AT&T sim card in it. Then get the iphone unlocked and sell it for $700, or even $800.
wats is the price for the iphone?? and wer should i buy it?? i've heard its about 43k... i think the iphone is cool, mainly if its wi fi.... u can surf the web in the airport and other stores wifi capable... and i've looked through itunes store, there are lots of application available... for ipod touch and iphone...thats why i cant wait to have my hands on that iphone..
i don't need internet connection because my house and work place are wifi zone....so my internet is free

i just got my iphone 3g at globe telecom and its great....wowoweee...ijust gor the 16gb
Get this phone at our own risk.
The phone craves for service fees, which you'll be wondering why others aren't paying for when the bill comes for you.
There are better ones out there. Iphone 3G is another example of APPLE's greed instead of providing you with what you need.
Can this 'phone connect to a PC (Vista)and sync with Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 via Bluetooth?
this phone is gonna be a major flop cellphones in telecom industry...pity on u apple....no bluetooth, no sms forwarding, 2.0 mp camera.. omg get a life apple.best of luck to u apple in india with ur 3g iphone.. seriously pity on u .

Anonymous, 21 Aug 2008what? what does it do? It looks nice, thats what it does
i was waiting for the omnia to come out until my phone broke and i needed to have a phone immediately ( and not have one of the terrible simple phones till the omnia comes out) and i thought i should give the apple iPhone 3G a chance ( a long term-18 months- Chance) . i knew what it lacked, i just didst think it was as crucial as it could be.
using the iphone i have to say it is pretty amusing with the interface , the graphics, the sleekness of its design and the curved glossy back, as well as the speed of the internet connection. apart from that. it is a pretty much limited phone with crippling communication options.
a MAJOR defect is that it doesnt have a copy/paste option, ie. you cant use a number sent to you in an email or a txt msg to send in another email or txt. or even any other sort of information.
another, you cant actually forward a txt msg, you cant send to multiple recipients.
and yet more of a MAJOR SET BACK. is that the text prediction works COMPLETELY the opposite of the way windows mobile does. in a pretty much dumb way. it's like Steve is just doing it to have a laugh.as you are typing on the on-screen keyboard. the text prediction does as follows:
1- offer you only ONE option.
2- if you dont want to use the text it has perdicted for you , you actually have to STOP typing and touch the word. meaning if you continue typing and press the space button, it will select the offered suggestion even if you dont want it.
also the battery life is good if you are not really using the phone or the internet , coz if you do. your battery dies almost IMMEDIATELY.
the voice coming out of its built in speakers is pretty low. hence a very low ringing volume as well as the vibration doesnt really alert you that much if the phone is in your pocket. which also takes us to wonder why the HECK isnt it possible to use the same phone ring tone to be a msg ring tone and vice versa?
internet browsing... hmmm ... a bit controversial; safari is a nice app and it is very useful on mobile, the zooming option is amazing and the landscape view is nice as well. the fact that you could open and select multiple browsing pages is very handy. BUT NO FLASH PLAYER OR JAVA? what are you think STEVE?
if we assume we dont need a memory card slot and will use the intentional memory to store stuff ( eliminating the option of file exchange on the go, by even making it worse by not having a bluetooth transfer option) the internal memory of a maximum of a 16GB , is terribly frustration. i mean, if you have a big screen you would probably want to watch movies and tv shows on it, and assuming it is also your ipod you wil need to put your music library on it too. you really think the 16 GB are enough for all that? ( that's if you dont already have th 8GB - may the force be with you) .
i will not even talk much about the camera, but as if the choice of only having a 2 MP Cam wasnt terrible enough; the camera software has go no options WHAT SO EVER. it only has ONE button, which is to take a picture ( and no hardware snap button, meaning it is really difficult to take a picture of yourself without you looking at the screen to press the snap - on screen- touch button) .
well to sum up, i am severely disappointed in what apple had to offer in this product ( being a huge apple fan) confirming that this phone is nothing but a blood sucking scam from the manufacturers of the best computes ever. if i ever get a chance of having my money back i would. this is definitely not a money well spent deal. i still think the SAMSUNG Omniea respects its user far more than the iPhone 3G does treating the users as they are as beginners as apple are in the mobile phone industry.
