I can tell you all first hand, I sell the iPhone at work. It is a very sexy phone. But overall it is quite crap
just found out that the optus world in chatswood has 16gb iphones in stock for walk-ins they seem to be the only ones around the chatswood area who have them availiable - gotta love the control put out by apple anybody know any other places?
I want to start by saying that this phone is one of the most extraordinary devices out on the market NOW. If you can afford 200 usd to pay for a phone this is the ONLY way to go. The games, music, videos, pictures on the device look like and play like nothing you ever had to experience in your life. I owned windows mobile 5 and 6 phones, java based, flash based, etc.... Never did a device delivered such user experience as the iphone did. It's a must have for anyone how considers himself or herself a truly mobile and fully connected person
Ernest, 08 Aug 2008my old i phone was okbut this new 3g is giving me severe battery problems. tried running it fl... moreyes, the battery drains fast when you do a lot of web browsing. It helps if you turn push email off, that way it would not constantly go online to check emails, unless of course u really need that feature turned on. Minimizing web browsing to only when necessary will extend it's batt life. A lot of times we play with the phone so much, and that's why the battery drains fast. The charger is pretty small, I suggest you take it with you like I do.
my old i phone was okbut this new 3g is giving me severe battery problems. tried running it flat a few times and then re-charging it overnite but with no success.
Has anybody other than me had similar battery life problems?

3G iPhone Burns User
Posted by Eric Zeman, Aug 4, 2008 10:33 AM
Talk about a hot product. One 3G iPhone user fell asleep with his 3G iPhone in his pocket. He awoke with his leg in extreme pain. It appears that the phone became so hot in his pocket that it burned his leg. Ouch.
A MacRumors reader recently posted this in its forums:
A few hours ago, I fell asleep on my couch and woke up from extreme pain coming from my pocket...
I pulled out my iPhone 3G, which was extremely hot... i then placed it on the floor, for whatever reason, my phone burned my leg, and after looking back at my phone, you could definitely see melted plastic...
Has this happened to anyone else?
What do you think apple will say?
He includes pictures of the phone, which is obviously damaged, and of his leg, which has a nice red burn on it. The plastic around the dock connector, in particular, looks melted. According to the user, "no push emails, and the 'Blazing 3G Speed' was disabled too since the lack of 3G in Hot Springs, Ark. Also, I don't think it was because [a key] was pressed, I was laying sideways with the phone side up..."
I have noticed the back surface of the 3G iPhone can become very warm. I wouldn't say "hot", but definitely warmer than any other phone I've used. For a phone to become so hot that it actually burns the man's skin, however, is far beyond typical behavior.
The user said, "I really don't want to form a lawsuit, I just want a replacement, the burn isn't severe, maybe like a sunburn."

Anonymous, 06 Aug 2008The iPhone, is awful, despite all the Apple fan-boys out there say. You can't send Pictures, ... moreWell if you really think about it. Sending pictures and songs via bluetooth is really not that important. What's important is, it's a great mp3 player and you can view pictures beautifully through its wonderful 3.5 display. As for the pictures, you can send it via email using your iphone. Apple is very particular about hackers & unauthorized sharing of music/files, and they discourage that by disabling transferring of files via BT.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970LOL, the $199 & the $299 prices are with a contract with at & t. If you buy an unlocked phone here in the US, it will cost almost $1000, so that price in the Philippines is about just right.
I HATE THE iPhone!
If you are updating from a basic old phone, you'll enjoy it.
I have been using the SonyEricsson P910i for the last 3 years and just made the biggest frustrating mistake and got the iphone because sonyericsson let us down by delaying xiperia for so long, they miss out.
The iphone lack a lot of the little things a business person needs, it has a very bad reception, it has very low sound/speaker outputs and if you use the google maps, I won't call it GPS, it's not, your battery runs out in a few hours. this toy is only designed so you can puchase things from the itune store.
A very very disappointed customer of iphone and Optus.
Santosh Kumar Singh, 07 Aug 2008Please upgrade camera 2 MP to 5 MP.at least 3mp this is no 2001
Okay, I got this phone 3 weeks ago, and i just love it.. The design is is simple, but fantastic, it is realy easy to use, and the apps are really fun.
The 2MP camera shoots great pics.
The only thigs i dont like are;
The easy to scratch back,
The fingerprint loving front,
and, the most important, that you cant use bluetooth for data transfer between other phones.
And, i just HATE iTunes.
