"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.
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010Apple is the best brand!
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.
Rupert loves the 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...:)

# It’s not a computer but a big iPod Touch
# No multitasking
# No Flash support for the web browser
# No camera
# No standard USB port (you can get USB connectivity with an accessory but you need to pay extra)
# No real GPS receiver (though there is cell-tower triangulation)
# 130 US dollars (90 euro) for a 3G modem seems pricey
# iTunes required for uploading content
# No kickstand – it cannot stand on a table without the dock
# No USB host
# Looks pretty easy to drop
# No exchangeable battery
# Typing is quite uncomfortable
# micro-SIM, instead of regular SIM for the 3G models
# No memory card slot
whoahh!!! just got an iPad... it looks and feels superb... still tinkering with it... my initial impressin is its like an iphone in STEROIDS>>>

The iPhone has a built in writing tool for budding writers, if they are writing rubbish it automatically calls itself and deletes the poor quality prose.
If you want your iPhone to not reject your poor quality work, I suggest you start here:-
Your iPhone will let you save in no time and who know's maybe one day it will lead to a Pulitzer prize
therock, 31 Jan 2010an arrogant comment.
What makes you think non iphone fans have never used an iphone and the... moreiPhone fans do tend to show their love for their phone, but how is that any different from showing love for a dog or car? They like their phones and obviously have some reason to celebrate. It's not just blind loyalty to a brand, it's a love and appreciation for a good product that does exactly what it says it will, even if that doesn't include fm radio or multitasking.
There is no best phone. As for durability, I've known many people with all kinds of bar phones, sliders, and touchscreens, and they've all complained of broken screens. I've never had a broken screen on iPhone in 2 years because I take care of it. If you drop your phone everyday, either buy a case or don't. It's advanced hardware and it wasn't made to be dropped.
10Mbs doesn't exist anywhere in the US, we've only just started getting 7.2, so 10 would be useless here, and most other places.
I am completely open to other phones, but until one comes up that could truly replace this phone for what it is, and not some feature filled trainwreck like the n97, then I'd gladly switch. It's been 2.5 years and I have yet to try a phone that puts the iPhone to shame in what matters most.

They are insulting YOUR decision own whatever phone you want.
