The next apple iPhone really needs some upgrading in the specs department! 3G upgrade is a joke!
How about a microsdhc card slot? A 3mp modern phone camera (I would say 5mp to be competitive) with a xenon flash...
That should get them started!
like it! but ******* add an FM radio plz its a music phone also huh!
lavina, 11 Jun 2008does anybody know why apple isn't releasing the new iphone in many parts of the world? we hav... morethe reason why the iphone 3G is not released in certain countries is probably because apple wasn't able to make a deal with a major carrier or had bad grey market experience. Thailand, where I live, is one of these countries. You can unlock the old iphone in any shop here for minimal fee. but now that won't be possible - pirates would have to bribe people in other, more corrupt countries, to release the iphone for less money to resell to customers who need a free iphone. to me this apple policy is so backwards, but in the US and Europe this business model will work; but not in China, India and many parts of SE Asia. Here in thailand AIS and TOT as main carriers sue each other over 3G licenses, guess apple decided wisely to stay out. my friends in singapore and the phillipines are luckier.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970tell me who really uses the second camera? ... i've had HTC devices with second cameras but i rarely use the second camera ...
sochea, 11 Jun 2008well the old iphone is lousy but maybe the 3G one not bad just wait and see !!!!!!!!!!!
HTC i... moresorry i beg to disagree ... i have 8 Windows Mobile phones some symbian phones and the iphone ... the iphone has limitations but man was i a fan of windows mobile ... 8 phones running on WM ... all being upgraded to the latest version of WM ... all the same unstable buggy OS ...
the non-power user i guess there more features upfront on the WM platform but the iphone can be reconfigured feature-wise as well ...

Officially the bluetooth is limited but open up your iphone ... the only thing i can't use is A2DP ... transferring files not a problem
International codes isn't a problem. I call almost everywhere and i haven't had any issues.
MP3 isn't used on the iphone oirginally just convert the file to M4A ... easy ...
I never had issues with WiFi though it only supports B/G
Pros and cons of the 3G? ... no can really say anything until is out in the market ...
I have a few questions. We all have read about what phone does not have and I agree to some extent. The features that are missing, which most effects me are the Bluetooth file transfer and copy/paste.
My questions is, in your opinion, do you think the phone is right for me (or anyone out there who falls in this category)
* I text, but not often, so SMS forwarding and MMS may not be that important
* I travel quite a bit. The bluetooth head phone (with A2DP) dont work on a plane, becasue the phone has to be in transmit mode
* Not really into taking pictures with a camera (have two digital SLRs for that)
* Correct me if I am wrong. If I have video chat the others I call/chat dont, isnt that kind of a waste?
* I dont have a portable music player, right now I use SE W580i
* Like the full web browser and GPS
* Finally, for a person who wants to have a phone, PDA, web browser and music player all in one device for a reasonable proce is the iPhone recommended?
I'm really waiting for this phone.,.
for anyone that saying windows better than mac,, please think again..
it is clear that windows first made base from a mac.,,,
and evrybody knows that leopard is a better os than vista,, (rite vista,, a failure made by microsoft)
i used to be a windows user,, even to the phone
but Windows is all crappy unstable,,
especially windows mobile, they don't even able to control the memory usage giving me experience of blue screen at least once every 2 days.. what a pathetic thing..
i believe Apple iPhone will work more stable, faster and better than windows mobile based phone..
besides we have to agree that iPhone has make a revolution for cell phone technology
well the old iphone is lousy but maybe the 3G one not bad just wait and see !!!!!!!!!!!
HTC is not bad
Denis, 11 Jun 2008Can i use the Apple iPHONE in africa?pls respond.APPLE...yes you whould be able to use it in africa ... if your carrier doesn't officially sell it ... even if they say that you can't have an unlocked phone ... every phane can be unlocked and will be unlocked.
karl_martinez, 11 Jun 2008i don't think it's the best phone in the world. there are still drawbacks.. i got an ipPhone ... morei guess your iphone was never tweaked ... a vanilla iphone is boring ... as well as the htc devices ... all of those things you have complained about the iphone, i've had that on my iphone for at least 6 months ago ...
Anonymous, 11 Jun 20082 MP, 1600x1200 pixels What do you expect for such a resolution? A Leica Optics :D?hey. it doesn't take a secondary camera for it to be on 3G. its on the real time transmission of data via diverse networks as supported by the service provider regardless of location, making it possible to do a lot of things in one location.. imagine surfing the web, while downloading email, getting directions, and watching videos EVEN when you're in call. ;-D
i don't think it's the best phone in the world. there are still drawbacks.. i got an ipPhone myself and i can only do a little regarding messaging and multimedia options.. poor camera settings.. what makes it really attractive is it's neat sleek package and it's fun-to-use 'finger swipe' operating system.. we'll nothing beats it's iPod feature. in my opinion, HTC mobiles remains uncontested..

martin, 11 Jun 2008yes its available in phil. globe supports it.y do i see 1 cam in the pic's if its 3G
For me, I'm a fan of Samsung and actually waiting for the i900 Omnia to be available to get it
but on the other hand, iPhone3G is a good option especially with the expected price range of it.
I just want to ask about specific points that a friend of mine faced with his normal iPhone
I know this model has Blutooth, but is it a full Blutooth support? I mean can i exchange files with other mobiles or PCs? can I connect to various Blutooth devices?
2. International Codes:
My friend told me something about a problem with international codes (when you put "+" or "00" in the phone number, iPhone doesn't recognize the calling number as one of the contacts!
3. Cannot set MP3 as ringtone
4. WiFi is a little bit weak
Also, could anyone experienced with this iPhone3G tell me what exactly are the Pros and Cons of it. Is it a good choice for a normal user who likes stylish technology devices :)
