iphone is the only phone that cant survive without pc
I really loved my iphone 3gs at first 3 months after spent nearly USD1,000 in my country.
Then love faded out little by little and i believe some other owners agreed. First, after i got over 140 apps it took me ages to reach the app i want and swipe my finger like crazy just for a little task.
Secondly, no multi-task. I knew that it doesn't have one but i thought multi-task is not a must have. But jesus, day by day it annoys like hell and it's called a SMART phone around the world.
Thirdly, the camera. I really kept trying to take pictures with so-called touch focus and it's just not practical in real life especially some fast shooting moment. What hurts most was when we had an accident and wanted to took pictures, i managed to get two shots while my friend managed 9 shots out of his N86. And what's worse when you open it laptop, the photos from my iphone are crap compare to N86 is just like from high end digi cam.
And finally, i can not live with my iphone without marry to a laptop while others who use other phones don't have to. I mean, what can you do if no laptop. Others can transfer photos, files, delete data on the move...
I think the iphone should come out with the frequency's 850,900,2100 mhz for country's like australia europe and new zealand but over all they are a great phone and im looking at one if they come out in 900,2100 mhz witch is the main frequency's used for umts in australia by most cell phone networks
innovate, 02 Feb 2010the macintosh, imacs, ipod, iphone, itouch, and then the ipad....then their bread and butter..... moreiTunes doesn't make much money for Apple, what it does is sells their hardware.
The data hosting and web traffic are enormous
Your Grandmother could install a knitting App on an iPhone or a Lois Armstrong song or some crap like that.
You can do literally ANYTHING you'd normally be able to do while talking on the phone, whether its txting, email, web or games. You can even listen to music while talking to somebody, it just plays in the background.
the macintosh, imacs, ipod, iphone, itouch, and then the ipad....then their bread and butter..their money machine the itunes. then what's next THE ITHING that does everything you want. and what's the i in those thing anyway... hey steveie
probably you don't know that they spend probably billions of dollars that's why its so expensive. they put all the available technology and did the consumer research. remember that one of the missing thing that they miss is a cut and copy thing. talk about high tech

"I want to be able to send a text message while I am already on the phone without having someone send me one (you can only reply now while using the phone)."
Press the home button while in a call.
You are in the menu.
Open messaging and start typing your message.
Touch the green bar across the top of the screen to return to your call or keep messing around with things in the menu.
Open the browser, check your Email, whatever you want.
There that's not so hard is it?
Apple needs to give us some sort of update. The iphone OS is getting boring, though it is clean and simple there are some serious shortcomings having applications scattered everywhere. They need to clean up and organize the screens better. I would like there to be profiles which only display the relevant applications. I want to be able to send a text message while I am already on the phone without having someone send me one (you can only reply now while using the phone).
I hope they decide to use a rubberized plastic on the next incarnation as the plastic on the 3gs is brittle and slippery. I want an iphone that I don't need to put a case on. Apple needs to improve the speakers for both calls and media as well as integrate a better antenna.

The BEST BRAND in advertising and promoting. They are the best in ... moreOnce again you don't understand what the iPhone is, everything is integrated into Apples other services.
The aren't the largest music store on earth for no reason.
The App store is the the largest software store on earth as well.
No-one else has anything like it, integration of services.
Acer has announced that they won't even bother making a competitor for the iPad, they can't match what it can do because of iTunes and other integrated services (MobileMe etc).
The average user doesn't want to mess around with cracking things or searching pirate sites, they just want something that works.
If people weren't buying things there would be no content.
Apple has bought LaLa a music streaming company, they have bought a GPS mapping company, they are building a massive, billion dollar server farm in North Carolina.
This will all come together using high speed Internet connections so you will have access to everything you want from everywhere you go, easily and readily available.
You can spend hours trying to set up similar functionality across a multitude of providers or you can tap an icon on an iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and have it working in seconds.
Too bad if you have to spend a couple of bucks here and there, it's your pocket change you can choose how you spend it.

The BEST BRAND in advertising and promoting. They are the best in this strategy but saying that they have the "most" advance operating system? hardware or technology? i don't really think so.
its just like they are very good in sales talking and here the stup!d and !d!ot people buying their products too much amazed of this promotions and advertisements.
anyway, we all are given our option. if u opted to be stupid then go ahead but if u opted to be smart and practical then u know what to do.
Hi, i am looking into getting a 3gs second hand.
Although i want it jailbroken to install games apps etc.. How would i know if it is already jailbroke??
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2010I dare you to write a column praising Trade Unions.

You'll prob... moreGood point, I've met him many times and I can assure you I won't be writing on unions... ever. I've just got a phone that is more intellectually challenged than I am, and I have a great tendency to mistrust anything sillier that me.
Still need help with it too.
why it is so expensive but it have not very wander full thing. i think N900 is so better than it.
I'd been a nokix fan since 3310, my last phone was E90, get bored of it & now using iPhone 3gs... Simple & these are the functionality that I need in the phone. No regrets having it, I'm enjoying all the functions..., especially emails & it's fluidity...
I'm happy for now...:)
