Thinking of buying an iphone 3g for the us but i need to know if it works in other countries.. i live in Lebanon we use the standard GSM sim-card.. so any ideas???
guyver3, 14 Aug 2008Again Nokia...even Samsung....are far more advanced when it comes to phones. Nokia and Samsung... moreI don't think you know what you're talking about. Just because other phones has more features than the iPhone it does not mean that they're already ahead. They can't even match the iPhone's ui. Would a fully loaded Honda civic be a better car than a base model bmw? No. It's not just about the extra features. It's the performance that really counts. And the iPhone outperforms any phone out there.
Really great design. and the best touch in the world.(using iphone) as i think we can't compare this phone with other models .
can any one tell me about the real price of iphone out of usa . is it 199$ for 8gb ?
i cant believe it.
Read on the news 2 days ago. I-phone users complaint it is not a good phone. It has poor 3G reception, and talking or conversation sometimes could get disconnected. Poor 3G reception while compared to normal phone....3g reception is always full. And even though 3G reception is poor, i-phone could not switch itself to 2G reception. Compare to other normal phone, when 3G has poor reception, at least it could switch to 2G by itself. I-phone got to get until it has Zero 3G reception, then only it can switch to 2G.
And there is more cons than pros which i could not list them dwn. Go and find out in other forums.
Overall, nice looking but has no substance.
Future unborn eskimos will build a fire by thier igloos too....LOL
I'm sticking with the IPhone G3. Like I said in a previous post, it is flawless in it's operaton in comparison to Windows Mobile Smart (dumb) phones. Hopefully Iphone will include apps of copy/paste, picture text messaging and video recording. I think 2 megapixels is pretty good for a cell phone. Sure, it's 1990 technology but how much more does an amateur need for a cam on a cell phone.
Salesman, 14 Aug 2008As a retail phone salesman and an iPhone user myself, I cant help but laugh at the Nokia N95 n... moreAgain Nokia...even Samsung....are far more advanced when it comes to phones. Nokia and Samsung have been building cel phones for a long a time. Apple is just baby when it comes to cel phones. The iphone still lack features. The reason the N-series such as the n95 is overprice is because it is an all around phone. Add up the prices of a camera, cel phone, and pc. It's just a matter if you can afford it or not.
Hey if the iphone is so expensive how much is the Omnia and Xperia. They must be really cheap.
Apple need to be axpensive it is axclusive brand and not for everyone to afford.
I guess not affordable for you nether
Sin -what ever- see you
As a retail phone salesman and an iPhone user myself, I cant help but laugh at the Nokia N95 nuts who think their phone is any good. We constantly have the 8gb black and the original N95 returned to our branch every week with problems and the phone is not a shade on the iphone. It is over priced and slow, Has a poor battery life! You only hate the iphone because you signed up for your nokia too early and feel you have to defend it! The N95's only outstanding feauture is the camera facillity and soon this will just be an average with 8.1 mega pixel models being released! Give it up and start worshiping the iphone as it is the future and soon you will ALL own one!!!
Not to mention that most appstore apps have been cracked.Have u guys seen crash bandicoot on iphone compared with nokia?It looks incredible, almost nintendo/sony psp quality.Imagine the games that will come! Appstore has been up for one month or so and there are HUNDREDS of apps many of them super-high quality. The iphone really is the future! Where is the nokia touch screen ?Also itunes sync is amazing: MUSIC PODCASTS TV SHOWS MOVIES oh and ITUNES U plus audiobooks etc...and did i mention APPSTORE?Just watch Crash Bandicoot on iphone and die of jealousy nokia fanboys
We already know all those things.
But anyway IPHONE is the best phone on the market at this moment no spam anymore please.......
Just a few major disadvantages that Iphone 3G has:
- No video calls over the 3G network
- The handset wobbles on hard even surfaces
- There are a number of messaging downers
- Camera has no auto focus, nor video recording… nor any settings at all
- Safari browser doesn't support Flash and Java, doesn't have a download manager
- Bluetooth support limited to headset use only (no A2DP or file transfers)
- No office document editor
- No copy/paste functionality
- You cannot sync Notes and TO-DOs
- No memory card slot (but knowing Apple there will never be one)
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2008yeah that is utter crap cos vodafone is one of the WORST networks outside urban areas. so netw... moreI use both networks driving around East Anglia for a company that has more transmitters on site than even farmers’ fields. For signal O2 drops off more than Vodafone.
guyver3, 14 Aug 2008if the iphone 3g has 3.0 + mega pixel and a great flash...i would buy definitely buy it. So I ... moreIphone is not a photocamera (nether a child toy) !!! it is a internet device,phone and an ipod.
There are a great numbers of the photocams up to 1o PM and those are not to axpensive.
Buy one of those and stop COMPLAINING about the Iphone
