American's need to pressure networks to up the ante and place them on a level playing field with europe.I can't believe you guys are happy with YESTERDAYS technology!Here in europe we regualary get download speeds in excess of 1.5mbit,you in the usa are crawling along using GPRS lol lol.Most europeans are using devices with at least a 3.2mp cam with carl ziess optics we are also used to our phones using OPERA browsers,torrent clients,mp3 editors etc etc Iphone is like a lame two year old model to most of us!fortunately for apple there is a some europeans who desire a low spec FASHION phone.
went into my local o2 store today to buy the 3g iphone.
ive had reservations about the phone due to all the applications etc its missing. however i sat down to get one and the nice gentleman brought the box to the table.so when i asked the sales person to demonstrate the ring volume on his personal iphone i nearly wet my pants with laughter.
"yes he replied it is a bit quiet "
so he went through all the tones available on the phone and i could hardly make them out. "it is a bit noisy in here tho" he said.
yes but isnt that the point, trying it in everyday enviroments. i mean do i have to be in a small room on my own to hear it.
sorry apple but for all its glorious features the phone is so let down by some basic stuff.LIKE BEING ABLE TO HEAR THE DAMN THING.
"I DONT BELIEVE IT" WHAT A WASTE OF TIME
ROLL ON THE NOKIA N96 OR SE C905
Purchased my iPhone 3G on launch day and despite 02 taking a good 5 days to activate my sim, I must say this is by far the best phone I have ever had the pleasure to own. Believe me when I say once you have used one of these bad boys you will never look at another phone again, and that's coming from a previously VERY loyal Sony Ericsson cellphone owner.
the apple i phone 3g is such an amazing phone . the feautures are so cool and at such a low price . where can i buy it
If SUPERIOR phones like the n81,n82,n95,n96,e90 etc with advanced operating systems are to complicated for you then your probably better buying iphone
Artemon, 16 Jul 2008this is the...champion!!!What champion Man ,Nothing infront of HTC Daimond
apple i phone why they are not introdusing blutooth connectivity (only head set ) its very bad. we will wait for that?
the phone is ok but seriously if anyone asks if they can get 1 just reply no as it only took 3 major phone companys 2 hours to sell out completely of the 16gb version. what is all the hype about.............................................. please if anyone wants to reply feel free.. il be keeping an eye on the events to do with nthe iphone
All deficiencies noted are sadly true. I want very much to like this product but it's just so retarded. Try again, Steve. I'll get version 3.... if that's not 3 years obsolete by that time, that is.
Is that true for Apple iPhone 3G....
No video calling,
no AD2P on the Bluetooth,
CAN'T share ANY (mp3, images,videos....) files via bluetooth, you cannot transfer files via bluetooth. what age is this ...STONE AGE???
can't use as a wireless modem, (you pay ridiculous data charges to activate internet on your phone, but cannot connect it to your PC and browse when you are at home)
no copy and paste,(cannot copy a part of a.... say.... email & send it....have to type it out yourself)
no 3.2 or 5 megapixel camera,(the 2MP camera it carries is worst camera..... photos look like they have come out of a VGA camera)
no video recording with camera,
no front camera,
no JAVA support
No physical keyboard (BELIEVE me! this alone is a dealbreaker...touch keyboard as good as it looks...once you use it then only you come to know about the importance of having a hard keypad)
iPhone 2.0 is no better than its first version
No removable battery. (You cannot change battery. Have to send it to apple outlet.. Come on now!!!!...This is not an iPod. Its a bloody phone. You cannot live without phone for 2-3 days)
No haptic feedback and
cannot send MMS,
can't use as external storage device (16 GB of utter waste..next time you go to your friend's house & find some interesting songs, movies, etc...sorry you cannot connect your '16 GB' phone and share it!!!! Apple apparently has a solution.. " BUY MUSIC & MOVIES FROM iTUNES STORE "..... Give me a break will you APPLE!!!)
no FM radio,
can't use your mp3 files as ringtones,(This is heights man!!!)
cannot insert any other SIM card….
completely tied to iTunes... Connect to your friend's iTunes & you risk erasing everything on your phone.
list goes on & on & on….
Some features may be activated by jailbreak.. But why the hell should you risk losing your warranty after paying so much.
And want to add third party softwares??.. YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM iTUNES STORE ONLY!!! . (Shell out more money). Apple is a bloody control freak. Dont surrender your freedom to it.
Apple are trying to IMPOSE THEIR MODEL ON US riding on the hype iPhone has created in the US (yes it was a flop in Europe ..thats why Apple never talks about its sales in Europe).
Those of who buy it... You will be most happy for atmost a week... & then, MARK MY WORDS...YOU WILL START REGRETTING IT!!!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970iphone iphone iphone... Ok staying strictly on the subject of the iphone. I currently have the original iphone. In the past 3 years I have had appx 60 new & different handsets half of which were by Sony Ericsson. When the original iphone was launch like many people I slated it! My opinion was based on what I read & over-heard. By chance I was able to pick a brand new one up free, put a pay & go sim card init & waited... From the get go I was totally impressed. Yes it does not have a memory slot, yes it is only a 2mg camera. No it cannot do MMS or bluetooth pictures. I live in a world of changing technology. And what it does do is store at present 800 of my fave songs. If im out & about and need to check films times - boom. Jump on my iphone. Full internet. The email set up was beyond easy. Infact my 6 year Son could set it up. Now they have released the 3G version... And I am even more impressed. This phone is not for everyone. It is for those that are on the move constantly that need to have a handset that can handle their emails & texts, can surf the net anytime from anywhere in the UK & like me can store a large number of music. I drive alot & have a cable in the car allowing me to listen to my songs will im driving. If U want a 5mg camera but dont listen to music, not bothered bout the internet or emails then hey go buy a Nokia or Sony. The iphone are for those in sync with the changing times of technology & life. iphone 3G. The closet thing to having a PC in ur pocket!
iphone 3g-excellent for evertything, i can learn to live without MMS and just about cope without viseo recording- im loving the novelty of the cool apps u can get but wondering how long this novelty will last before im just carrying around a really big phone/very small laptop? hopefully it will last!
