The first iphone was a fluke and now apple has run out of ideas.iphone 3g does not qualify to be a 3g fone plz no video calling and no video recording then what is the use of a 16 gig memory.Am really disappointed.Will just stick with htc diamond with all the new generation features and a classy style 3Dflow technology.2.8 screen is the problem but i can live with.thanks to the apple os or else the iphone 3g would have been crap.
Please read the definition of 3G below where iphone 2 does not qualify to be defined as true 3G device.
3G is the third generation of mobile phone standards and technology, superseding 2G. It is based on the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) family of standards under the International Mobile Telecommunications programme, IMT-2000.
3G technologies enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. Services include wide-area wireless voice telephony, video calls, and broadband wireless data, all in a mobile environment. Additional features also include HSPA data transmission capabilities able to deliver speeds up to 14.4Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8Mbit/s on the uplink.
Unlike IEEE 802.11 networks, 3G networks are wide area cellular telephone networks which evolved to incorporate high-speed internet access and video telephony. IEEE 802.11 (common names Wi-Fi or WLAN) networks are short range, high-bandwidth networks primarily developed for data.
Im sure 100000 people will stop buying this new 3g iphne, because Data plan to high and there is couple of bad new Privacy on ATT..Razr, Nokia and more phones from ATT has a same 3G, but Data plan is 14.00 or 19.00 with Unlimited Data and Text..We was waiting new iphone about 6 months, but, now i start hate it and i will go with other regular phones...Thanks any way
Apple please weak up with your ATT..Why we have to pay $30.00 for data plan each month and there is no Text message, and 2 years contract? There is still no VIDEO, no Regular Bluetooth, No MMS, no no no and never will be, so what? IPHONE? little small?..We have to pay little cheap 199.99 in the store, but you adding data plan 10.00 more?? We are smart dear Apple...! You maybe stop making phones, yes..After one year you just add some GPS and 3G? SO?..Nokia N95 has a all all and all feature's even 1 hour Video Recoding..No, i will cancel my plans with ATT today..
Apple dont have new brand to copy,i guess they shuld stop making phones and go and keep making ipods and leave the real phone manufacturers to run the technology race.
htc diamond works with real time,3D and beautiful i mean beautiful phone have got one.shame on apple
No front camera for video calling and no arabic language .
I hate apple .
OMG! no more unlocked iphones... you have to activate the AT&T account in the apple store!
Shame. In a whole year the only improvements are things which the phone should of had in the first place and even still it is missing so many other features. Its a real shame because the hardware is great and the interface is in a league of its own.
How hard could it be for Apple to add video recording, stereo bluetooth, bluetooth data transfer, mms support or FM radio??? All high-end phone have these features.
If this phone sucks how come that in a day where most stocks including RIMM blackberry are sharply down apple is up nearly 2 % ?
huhu.im gonna sell my 16GB iphone n buy this new 1 i think.i cant sleep well till this iphone beside of me.hahaha
It's possible to send any pictures or any music to any phone and also receive with bluetooth?
almost apple like past but increase 3g but samsung raise phones to 339 samsung company is very intelligent undoubtedly also nokia is intelligent but no know why until now nokia absent
To all you people saying this phone lacks features, is a stone age phone etc... you have no idea what you are on about. This phone has incredible MP3 best on the market, the user interface is the most advanced by far, the touch is most advanced. This isnt a camera its a multimedia phone. Web browsing is its main attraction along with its use of multimedia such as videos and music. There is no phone as technologically advanced as this. Wonderful phone
if u go to this site, it states there is bluetooth???
i still rekon this is more of a ipod with additional features; dont really see it as a phone but going for $199; i think thats a farely reasonable price with some lack of features though it would be better with a better camera, mms, flash, video recording, IM and a front camera. But cant complain much with such a good going price.
People say this phone is cheaper. But is it really. It comes locked and can only be purchased at AT&T stores with activation, for 2 years.
It includes a voice plan ($30) and a data plan ($30).
$60 each month X 24 months = $1440
$1440 + $200 (cheapest iphone 3g) = $1640.
This phone is more expensive than the previous version and than the ipod touch.
Open your eyes and DON'T BE FOOLED by apple's MARKETING STRATEGY. You end up paying a lot more.
come on apple, i was looking forward to putting my n95 into retiremeant with ur lastest offering. Il wait until next year, it needs AT LEAST a 3.2 megapixel camera, a front camera for video calls and a 32gb capacity wouldnt be bad. Overall this ones great, great price great improvement but il hold on for another year with my n95.
