I noticed most people leaving negative opinions dont actually own 1 or used their freind's for 20 mins. And people who own one are defending it. within a week of me owning the iphone I was totally impressed, I have experienced all kinds of phones: pearl, n95, all kinds of ericsons. But was never able to use those phones to their full extent, because of different reasons, some were too slow, some were too complicated, some didn't sync well with my computer or the interface was sloppy... The integration between the iphone and the computer is simply genius, I have had 8gb phones before, but never put more than a couple of songs, right now I am listening to my music (currently consists of 800 songs and a ciple of movies) while writing this post. I was surprised my self to READ that this phone had only a 2 mp camera, but one picture and eveything was clear... The # of mp isn't anything, its the right software (I wish I could post a picture or something). This phone feels like it was designed with me in mind. It has everything I want and nothing I don't. Bluetooth connection, MMS, and someother stuff people mentioned, honestly I never really used it on my other phones, and the INTERNET integration in this phone can be described in just one word, Genius. The pictures can be emailed within a couple of seconds. (btw, one I it favorite things about the phone... The keyboard, OMG, I typed this whole post without looking back to see if I made a typing error... I can type without looking at the phone for gods sake. The keyboard is simply genius it guesses what words you meant to type and learns your typing patterns. This is the first phone I have owned on which I probably spend more time on the Internet, listening to music, WATCHING movies (seriously, better than DVD), than I hVe on anyothe phone. Notice this is all without mentioning the installer. Which gives me unlimited power over the phone.
does the gps function go towards data charges? if so, how much approximately?
The iPhone 3G is a nice phone, but I don't like the idea of forcibly being on a subscription with a carrier in order to have this phone. Why does apple always want to "tie up" the iPhone with a carrier. Why is it so hard for them to sell the iPhone like how they sell an iPod, "no strings attached?"
i phone is so gud but main problem is cameraa and fm not having and java MIDP mig33 cant not have i want be a increse the camera futher and java & games also

Its cool dont get me wrong but iphone has alienated itself by forcing subscriptions first time with iphone 2g. I remember trying to get one but couldn't and a woman at an english store said i would need to hack it for it to work. They were mean an stupid by encouraging hackers onto the phone and weakening osx as a system with people realizing its layout from hacking the iphone.
The iphone maybe a great device, but still it feels like it wasn't really in the "main stream" competition with other brands.
dat sucks no instant messaging..its just d name and how it looks..but nothing really special about it..
the iphone 3g is not going to be as cheap as 199$ as said ... infact it is gonna be around Rs15000--Rs20000. the new 3g system does not work in india so it is useless to have one. the phone with the worlds best touchscreen .. but hardly needed features
Was considering the iPhone3G (1st gen iPhone was lacking in just about everything), but disappointed again with the 2nd gen iPhone as it also lacks some simple features.
Now looking at Samsung OMNIA or SE X1 which have more advanced features - the OMNIA almost embarrasses the iPhone3G. (3rd gen iPhone may be better hopefully).

It Has Begun! iPhone Line Forms At NYC Apple Store (AAPL)
Dan Frommer | July 4, 2008 7:25 PM
It's a week early, but a handful of people are already in line at the 5th Ave. NYC Apple Store for the new iPhone 3G, which goes on sale next Friday, July 11.
Right now, about ten people have started a line outside of Apple's flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York. Word is that the family at the head of the queue are attempting to break some kind of record which involves their baby -- which kind of sounds a little intense if you ask us.
ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE ALREADY FIXED WITH READY-APPLICATIONS!
MMS will come in an update just like sending messages to multiple people was.
Theres video recording software already
I bet there will be an app to have a landscape keyboard as well!
Everything will be done with software :D
softbank boy, 04 Jul 2008there's no video capture.you shoyld just instal its program !!
developers are scrambling to make programs for the iPhone because Apple made it so easy for them. and with the App Store, they have a direct access to customers right there on the phone.
the only advantage Symbian and Windows Mobile have over iPhone OS X apps is the number of apps and number of developers but that will quickly change in months ahead. the iPhone will have the best third party applications catalogue in the game and they'll all be secured from hackers who will someday soon begin targeting smartphones and PDAs more severely.
the App Store will be for the iPhone what iTunes is for the iPod. it will help drive growth by offering iPhone users like me something they can't get anywhere else. then we'll get hooked and never want to leave. then we'll be buying only iPhones for the rest of our lives. it's brilliant.
