I've lost contact with you since that N97 hype waiting days, together with Michizi and Allan (where are they?) that turn to be a dissapointmet to many.
I read your comment the other day that you too were keeping your iphone, so I kinda surprised to know that you have traded it to N97 finally (:
Anyway for me also lots been goin on for my long search. After N97, I lusted for E55 but got no luck with it because it doesn't released here in my country.
But then my eyes grab attention to android phone and long story short, my search ended with HTC Hero.
And boy.. I love it! you should get the taste of Android phones like Hero and see it yourself. I think it's available in Oz.
It's like Iphone, with multitouch, etc but more with it's Sense UI that is brilliant, Android market and google apps, most of it free and the phone itself is unlock (no restriction).
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Ir's sad how apple pointlessly keeps improving the hardware, while the siftware can't even make proper use of the current cpu:
-480x640 video while all other phones that have it have D1 or even HD
-no hd video because iPhone only plays apple formats, encoding from HD to HD always loses quality and take ages so you might aswell encode in iPhone's own resolution.
-still no games gor 3GS, same quality as the ones for the first iPhone.
and sooo much more software faults: youtube.com/watch?v=85idbPSp14A

It blows any other games on phone's into the dust.
Notice how when people whine about iPhone games they all resort to comparisons with dedicated gaming consoles, that's because the iPhone lifted mobile gaming to a whole new level.
Well Linux has always been crap for games.

There is a video of a guy comparing the 3G and the 3GS to show the speed difference of the 2 models, the 3GS is considerably faster. Some people may see this a huge upgrade but there are still those who only use the phone for basic functions. Personally I was hoping it would bring better games to the table, seems it hasn't though.

All those f00ls who think their is not much difference between the 3G and 3GS obvoiusly know nothing about ARM processors etc
There are major differences under the hood and the OS update brought over 100 new functions to the iPhone.

It's like that Simpson's episode when Lisa designed that doll. Malibu Stacey was the most the most popular doll, she had alot of features and was very pretty to look at. Then Lisa's doll came along with more realistic funtionality and people were excited. But not to be outdone by another brand, the folks who make Malibu Stacey released a new doll at the last minute with a new feature - a brand new hat!
I wonder what feature Apple will bring with the next iPhone. A qwerty keyboard? A 5mp camera? A hat maybe? Who knows! The possibilities are endless!

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970As I mentioned previously, since there is an iPhone for every budget your theory of people not being able to afford the iPhone is pretty much thrown out. When you come to an open forum such as this there will always be forum trolls who come here to flame and be flamed. This is the internet, not a virtual world where everyone holds hands and braid each others hair, whilst sitting around a campfire telling stories.
One thing I will admit about the iPhone is that it dramatically reshaped the idea of a perfect phone. It paved way to the time of the touchscreen, web browsing and applications for every need. Without the iPhone we may not have had devices that can offer us much more than phone calls and SMS's. That being said, IMO I am not a fan of the restrictions Apple set upon the developers, such as what will be allowed in the App Store and what will not. I also jailbroke my iPhone so I could have more options with Apps and such, however I still wasn't 100% happy so I traded it in for an N97. I do not reget getting my iPhone it bought me many hours of joy and entertainment. However, it is just not the phone for me any more.
I cannot speak for my fellow trolls on here, but personally I come here for the enjoyment of reading arguments and flame wars by other posters. Even a few simple words like "iPhone is cr@p" never fail to start a war of words with the keyboard warriors so firecly over-protective of their beloved phone.
Utter rubbish in a black and silver casing.
More limitations then a maximum security jail cell.
Less usable features then a calculator.
Rich in price and poor in quality.

Imagine that! The 16GB is available for free on lower priced plans as well. There's also the 8GB 3G available for those who can't afford the 3GS models. Since there is an iPhone for every budget, it kinda blows your theory about only rich people affording iPhones.
You need a new argument!

As far as I'm aware since Apple do not support jailbreaking in any way, shape or form dealers are not in any way allowed to promote it. Therefor, it seems to me impossible that a dealer would help you jailbreak it, unless they were not an authorised dealer.
