Me and my boss went to trieste, italy today to try and get him a new phone (which he mostly needs for business purpose). Around here, you can buy an unlocked iphone 3g - 8gb,by Telecom italia for 500 Euro (16gb is not in stock yet, they don't know when they will get them).
Anyway, he really liked the display, but was disappointed in relative closedness of this device. Almost all things need to be done via apple services, and more importantly, this phone cannot be used as a modem! This is very important as he is often abroad and carries laptop with him, but no-go with this phone.
Anyway, he's decided not to buy iphone, it's just a toy, and not good for serious user, unfortunately! And this type of phone cannot replace laptop PC.
I think this phone is great, but be careful before you buy it, check if your pocket of your pants does fit your iphone.My friend had this prob...
class phone apple will take over the world cant wait for apple iphone nano its going to come.
For all of those lucky enoughto own this phone, I need help!!!
I read that apple have decided to fix the bluetooth problem, do you know if they also decided to fix the problem of not being able to enter phone numbers directly into your phone??? or download your own mp4's into your phone and watch them? can you successfully watch youtube on the iphone?
i think da iphone looks very decieveing 2 me if u ask me i would not buy it coz i think it Would freeze n all dat. I hav da n95 its way betta den da iphone
apparently they changed the bluetooth
you can now send items from fone to fone
like normal bluetooth..
because people were complaining
i pefer the n82 though =D
Well now, after using the 3G iPhone, i can safely say, its not all that much of an improvement over the 2G iPhone. Sure its internet is faster, but thats more down to the HSDPA asspect, not software, the interface is the same, the limitations are the same. There is a handy remote destry facility, for personal data should it get stolen, but on the whole, I see no reason to upgrade.
Oh, and for the user curious about how it looks?.. Different, the backing is now a solid plate, looks like plastic, but may be a ceramic I don't want to pry one open to find out, but otherwise identical.

What is that for? But don't you also have to pay monthly fees with Tmobil or other carriers? So why would that $30/month w/ at&t be a turn off?

Can the I-Phone 3G perform a Multiple Sending of SMS Messages? (e.g. sending an SMS Message for 2 or more persons)
well, i personally dont think this phone is worth to buy. it said only $199 or $299 for 16gb, most of u might think, oh god, is cheap. but think about that, u need to pay $30 per month+tax, and some open line or blah blah blah, and also the contract is about 2 years i think(not really sure), so in this 2 years u actually need to pay at least about thousand dolars + the actual $199/299. so do u still think this phone is worth for you all ? y dont just go buy a n95 or 96 instead ?
first time around, lagged, froze. called for a replacement, few days later got and second one mailed. now i have the same problem.
I've had the 16GB for about 2 weeks and so far the only complaint I have about this phone is the fact that the only videos you can watch are from youtube...Any other videos show on the screen as a box with a question mark...I wonder if there is any software you can download in order to change this and be able to watch videos from any website such as movietickets.com or myspace etc...other than that, its a great phone, much more sleek in design, the internet is incredibly faster and the battery lasts much longer than the first version...
