haha...bluetooth can only support for headset but not transfer files???..u call this a great phone???????????????????????????????//
Phone looks great but is impossible to sms with if you have long fingernails! Responds only to finger touch unlike the LG Viewty which you can use nail,finger or the stylus. Oh well thats a no goer for me !!
blud this fone is immense. camera not to bad.. fone is so fun fun fun! if u want entertainment and fun on a fone this is the one for you. browse internet for free anywhere any time at fast speeds! so if ur a facebook or myspace fan then this is good, u can also stream movies etc! easy to use handset, much better than tocco which i previously had, well tocco is better for camera understandably!! on a £45 tariff i get 1200 mins and 500 txts! not bad really as got the fone free! this phone wont dissapoint.
does the iphone 3g can connect to a free wlan just like a laptop if i buy in prepaid and i do not buy a package for data????
The N95 8GB is miles better. It has loads more functionality. The only thing the N95 could do with is a touch screen interface.
What is with the hype about apple having 3G functionality....most phones have had this for ages. Apple are really slow!
i agree with all the comments about the camera and bluetooth etc but its still an amazing touchscreen and ive had a viewty and a tocco in the past few months and they dont come close!!!!! i love my iphone and wouldnt swap it for the world!!!!
was seriously looking at getting one, but not even 24 hrs out of the shop, and it looks as though this phone has already expired. with all the hype surrounding it, with the controversy of the cost of the phone, and the cost of the plans available for it, compared to the rest of the world, it seems that it is nothing but an expensive paper weight.
with the world wide release in NZ, you can imagine how much media this has gotten, and now there will be even more with nearly 90% of those who have bought it either returned them, or have given it a bad wrap.
Personally, its sounds like you would have been better off keeping your old phone, and buying a ipod nano.
Arrived in Australia today and played with it for a while, bit behind the times now and would have been good in the 90's.Very dissappointed with all the hype about it.
the iphone is really really undescribably painstakingly gash , i would not buy this phone if my life depended on it , why would you want a phone that does absolutly nothing not even the simplest things that a bog standard cheap handset would do , if it were up to me whoever decided to charge the amount of money for something as good as the nokia 1208 should be stopped
CHEAP TRICK !... I got to the O2 store at 815.. they had sold out... are they so desperate to be able to say demand has outstripped demand that they make sure they sell out in 13 mins!
Apple should give their customers what they want a bit more rather than concentrating on hype.... its put me off... bye bye Apple !
This fone would have been top dog,,,,,,in 2002 !!....Specs are poor at best for a 2008 supposed superfone
as someone that has worked on the 3G iphone project i feel the handset is somewhat limited.
Has no MMS ability but an application is soon to be released.
its 2MB cam is slow and has no zoom feature (optical/digital) has no flash or video recording.
Its customization is very limited with only the ability to change the background that only appears when you unlock the screen. (not the home screen) you cant use mp3's etc as ringtones unless you make your own in garage.
Otherwise the interface is smooth and responsive and very userfriendly.
this phone is over-rated.
all i will say is why have a 3g phone on o2 with the worst 3g coverage in the country why go out and get a phone that you cant youse all the features on
my sister has got one this morning and it is so slow
WE found the battery no where near specified times but in past people would say carry a second battery,,YOU CANT !!!
Why bluetooth is at the lowest usuable level in the history of bluetooth is absolutly beyond us lot,,and most phones these days d/load mp3 over a gprs connection at least,, never mind not at all its only via wi-fi on i-phone..
Iwould like to go on about mms and camera etc but whats the point.. all the build up again for this and all we got is a 3g original i-phone ....
WE all think its lowered the exclusivity in plastic and could not reccomend it over original i-phone,,,not that that got much reccomendation...For crying out loud if you have got that money there are so many phones better than this and have the basic requirment of a mobile today such as auto-focus and mms,,,why not buy a second hand p990i it will outdo this for only £80 ,,,ok a bad choice but you know wat i mean..
Steve Jobs does good at hype ,,full marks for him but its the product thats bad at basic things it could be an absolute winner and sell millions more but at this level of spec its just not good
I already have IPhone 2G 8G for more than 5 months
1. Size and its screen for me is great. you can see even in sun
2. its function is good and very fast.
3. its application;preinstalled
4. Main function you have to connect to Internet
5. But you can not surf the arab websites
and also arabic sms
6. actually it is not my main phone but I am using as database mainly.
7. I like it
cmon apple geeks u were able to used touch tech but didnt include the auto focus/zoom features..
today was crazy with the release in store of the phone.
after selling and demonstrating it to 100's of customers ive come to the conclusion its not all that. i mean dont get me wrong its a nice toy, but thats where it ends. i mean no itunes access over network pffff, restricted bluetooth, incredibly POOR speaker, have had multiple returns allready due to poor loudspeaker, you can barely hear anyone talking or music.
saying that all phones have there downsides and upsides. as does this unit. each to there own me personally i have a blackberry which does what i need but who am i to judge what a customer needs it for. im just suprised to see the return rate considering its "The product and the best quality as you so often hear"
peace out, and sympathy to all the telco staff who are still working the long hours, im upto 15 in a row and still counting
Well... I am wondering what quality more can we expect with the 2.0 MP camera and it is a phone camera. God! The quality even 4-5 times the 2.0 build in O2 Xda Atom. With the features it gives and the price offer, I am wondering to choose others rather than this one. I mean at least for this moment, the technology today, this do it all!
