I can't believe the prices that the iphones are being bidded up to on ebay.
Firstly, to the ebay sellers: I think it's rude and wrong to be flogging them on ebay for way over the roof prices and it's horrible that there were heaps of people who lined up just to buy one but many missed out because of people like you.
Secondly, To the people bidding on ebay for them, why in the hell are you going to payout almost, if not double the price for an iphone 3g. Come on, in a couple of weeks if that, your mobile carriers will have them back in stock again, why not just put your name down on the list and wait... omg you will save yourself money.
Lastly for the people who may read this and think im bitter as I might not have one... well sorry I do have one and I am very happy with it and I paid the RRP for it and unlocked, but in no way would I allow people to rip me off for something I know I could get in a week or two if I didn't get it first time around.
Serious ebay buyers..... save your money, have patience and don't give these scammers more then they deserve for one.
Well thats my thought for the day ;-)

All the people that telling us how fabuois Nokia is why dont you joyn the NOKIA forum and spam over there.
Nobody needs your opinions over how good Nokia is and bad Iphon is.
The fact is i cant buy iphone 3g in uk for maybe another month course out of stock, there is planty of all kinde of Nokias nobody wants even with 5 mp cam.
you wil not comvince anyone to not buy iphine
there is no other divide like it on this earth. Good luck wiht your nokias,smsongs and all the other look a like the seme kinde of phones ................
No gps reciever its google maps (enternet based), no mms, cant add a contact without syncing to your pc!! what the?, 2mp camera feels like a 1! & no video recording, bloototh conection only to headphone( cant connect to pc, car or other Devices!) no wifi. this really isnt a phone yet still more of an ipod i dont know what all the hype was about! Was it the design??
i got my iphone 3g 16g black last friday afternoon in japan. i find it very good and very interesting gadget. i have several high end units but for me this iphone has its own character, distinctively outstanding phone.. thumbs up to iphone!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Karan read all points made by maniacks and then decide
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well karan i think you ll know who the clear winner is just check out the points i made below man . E71 has all those features iPhone does not have . But if you go just for the looks and a touch screen then apple but i feel is it s the Crappiest phone of the year .i wish apple made all features available i would have bought it anyways waiting for the next version
is there a "metal body" or its d plastic body & phone screen is scratch proof or not in apple iphone 3g plz post comments onn dis site????? or mail me at email@example.com
To those that just got the iPhone 3G.
Do you guys care that the back is made of plastic this time, & not metal?
My AT&T contract is up in a couple months, & I was gonna get the iphone 3G, but I am disappointed that Apple made the back out of plastic.
What the hell for??.....Apple could've easily made the back black or white, & still made it from metal.
It always seems that when mobile companies add upgraded specs to a phone, or newer model, the build always has to suffer.
Nokia for example could easily make an N95 spec phone with the same build quality of an 8600 Luna or 8800, but always use plastic.
Motorola is the ONLY company that knows how to properly construct a solid phone. The use steel, or some other type of metal, & hardened glass on their high end phones.
I am sick & tired of seeing phones that cost over $500.00 made out of plastic!!!
got a 8gb phone on friday.first impressions excellent.its way ahead of other makes.very user friendly,fast internet,the gps is fast and accurate.i was also surprised at the camera,although 2g the photos look great.only downside needs charging every night especially with heavy use.otherwise excellent phone.highly recommended.
Allan, 13 Jul 2008Well bek, get a hearing aid for the music player and incoming calls. If you are driving wit... morewell I guess the worlds going deaf cuz I can here the speaker loud an clear even with the radio on. Evn if u can't y not just turn vibration on with the ringer?
Since the iPhone came, we have haters and lovers and people who do not have an idea but buy it because other say it is max. I bought the F480 few days ago, after negotiating with myself about the iPhone or the Samsung. I need to say, the second iPhone generation looks not that bad but I refuse to buy it because of the marketing.Today I am writing this from Tokyo where the iPhone is launched right now. Long lines are waiting for the shops many many hours, outside it is 35 degrees and the sun shine as hell, come on , this is what marketing do with people, make them so crazy they think they need the toy, and not even tomorrow, but right now. 35 degrees and hours waiting in the sun, that can never goes well. Without all these hype, I think I should buy an iPhone too, but now...thanks. By the way the F480 is not bad too, read the test results first, maybe you may decide the marketing will not catch your money
Why don't they include FM radio in iphone??? why apple so reluctant about radio?????
Allan, 13 Jul 2008Sounds to me like you wouldn't have bought it if it was on contact with all the data fees!!!Actually, I've been getting exclusive perks from Rogers for over 13 years now. So it was just a matter of time that they introduced the Iphone and offered it to me. I also DO have a data package currently...but paying less than half of any data plan out there.
I ll tell you people y you should consider carefully before blowin your hard earned money
1 cannot forwards msg s o wats this? Even a basic nokia 1100 has this and they say its a phone joke :)
2 o o a music phone with no a2dp profile ha ha joke no 2 :)
3 a music phone with no fm radio ha ha well if you want please get an accessory and pay me ok
3 this is a revolutionary product so please pay for everythin ok for ex ringtones:)
4 cannot transfer contacts through bluetooth cause this is a revolutionary product so pay me and sync from apple store
5 a revolutionary product cannot take videos and has the worst 2mp cam
6 a yellow screen but don worry its a revelvutionary product with a warmer tone and ppl believe it 6 cannot be used to even read mms and still ppl really think its revolutionary
Well if you still think its revolutionary well buy it
But i don think so
The-Aziz, 13 Jul 2008You know what... Im sick of hearing people go back and forth about the Iphones (both models).... moreSounds to me like you wouldn't have bought it if it was on contact with all the data fees!!!
se23, 13 Jul 2008all I hear is only 2mp cam, no mms, no blutooth sharing!!!! Well I've prob sent 5 mms in my l... morePage 73. You said you thought iphone 2 would shut up all the haters,boy was i wrong. Also all the hype and for what.
So as i see it you also think apple should have made more advances in iphone 2 or iphone 3g in otherwords to shut up all the haters.
You know what...
Im sick of hearing people go back and forth about the Iphones (both models). If you simply do not like Apple or the phone itself, good for you and save your breath (or keystrokes for that matter). Apple is doing their part just like any other cell phone company when it comes to Hype, Distribution, Marketing, etc... and WE, the customers are reacting to their efforts. So, of course they are a definite success when it comes to profits and happy customers. But of course, the Iphone and/or 3G isnt perfect, but come on...which phone actually is? This device comes with everything you basically NEED. Phone, Camera (standard), SMS, MP3 player (8GB or 16 GB), Calender, Applications, PC-Sync, I can go on and on. I just laugh when I hear people complaing about the camera or the speakerphone quality. But hey, not all phones are perfect. If you're crying about a better camera, buy a GOOD CAMERA!
Then there are the unionized haters of the Iphone...everyone has their own opinion, and this is mine. The Apple Iphone (3G) simply has an APPEAL to it, that we love so much. Lets say for instance, Ferrari or Benz? Same dual between the Iphone and the N-series phones. Both are great at their own things, but at the end of the day each customer decides on their needs and wants (or desires lol).
Again, the Iphone has that certain 'appeal' to it thats got everyone going crazy. I cant lie, I've ordered it yesterday on the release date and its coming in a few days time. (By the way, im probably the only person in Toronto, OR Canada to be able to get the Iphone from Rogers: OFF CONTRACT, NO DATA PLAN, and for only $200 :) Don't ask how, because thats just foolish, but I do take pride in it, as I am just a regular customer with perks).
It serves my basic needs:
2)MP3/Video Player (8GB's worth!)
4)I just look bad ass.
Enough Said. To those who are thinking of getting this phone, do some research, look at it, go spend some time with it at the store. And if it suits your needs, BUY IT. If you find that you dont, find yourself another phone, and stop hating on the rest of us who actually find this phone to be appealing and proper to our NEEDS.
Good Day :)
