I've updated my iphone 3gs to 3.1 and I really regret. The phone is lock now and needs a valid sim card to activate it so am I locked forever? Will there be no unlock for this 3.1 update?? Im really scared !!! I had read some forums and they said 3.1 may lock down the iphone forever and wouldn't be able to unlock it?? is it true?? then what could I do with this iPhone if it really can't be unlock in the future? I could only make emergency calls now...Help please !

Despite other phones having had... moreiPhone sold alot, that's why there's alot of browsing going on.. BTW Opera browser is alot faster and more stable than Safari..
I'm still waiting for proof.. I'm serious, i'll buy the iPhone if you convince me that it's better than any low-end phones..

Despite other phones having had this functionality for years, the iPhone absolutely dominates in this area.
Why is this so?
This is the greatest mobile in the whole world! Many features are included in this phone. Comparing to N900 it is 70 times excellent. I've buyed this mobile.
All you Iphone haters out there should shut the effin up there!
windows OS= yeah we all know they all have better capabalities but the truth is
VERY LAGGY OS and very COMPLICATED
which makes phones suck
Just one proof!! One proof that the iPhone isn't just a low-end phone with just a nice GUI!.. Just one, and i promise i'll buy an iPhone and try to convince everyone around me to buy it too..

iPhone got rid of the D-pad that you should use to go to something and instead used a touchscreen now to just tap it, this idea was already there since the late 90's.. Alternative user interfaces was used in windows PDA for us to install so that we get better interfaces for our own preferences and reach our application or tasks more quickly..
This time iPhone went through a different approach.. installed a graphical accelerator for things to look different so that all those "millions" you're talking about get impressed by graphics!!..
All people i know are only giving me the graphics to prove me wrong when they give up comparing feature with Windows or even Symbian!!..
More sense, just waiting for more sense to come out of you people..

The reason the iPhone dominates in so many areas of mobile web use is that it is so easy millions of people are just doing it.
Take FLICKR the App i've got on my iPhone links in directly to FLICKR's API's and I make one touch to upload a photo or a few touches to upload a whole folder of photo's.
Other phones have been able to do similar things for a few years but hardly anyone uses it.
Most WinMo devices are sold as corporate phones to people who will not use them outside work purposes.
The iPhone came along and changed the way the average user can use a smartphone and people lapped it up and started using everything it has to offer.

Especially girls too.. That doesn't mean that the iPhone as a phone leads.. You know i don't know with what language you want me to laugh..
You obviously don't read all the way in my posts.. I don't have a degree in Computer Science but i have what is better, a degree in Information Technology and Computing..
I learned in my first years as i recall, companies sell their products by trying to seduce the customers by graphics and designs.. The iPhone just have that in its side, although i'm not really sure about the design there..
So its how stupid you are to buy the phone if you just like what you see in videos or pictures.. My spare PDA phone could upload a photo in Flickr faster than your iPhone, well faster than the 3G as i recall..
Don't talk market with me, cause i don't care about the market.. All i care is how good the phone is..
Talk sense if you can, and i still wait for somethings that you think windows can't do that i can prove it does..

It's only got about 500 games the iPhone has 21,000 and you have to go to a shop and buy them for around $40, a lot of games for the iPhone are free or 99c the top titles from major publishers are between $5 and $10.

Now is your piece of junk the leading mobile web browser?
No it isn't the iPhone is with 50% of the world's mobile browsing and 66% of US mobile browsing.
Is your piece of junk the number one camera uploading to FLICKR?
No it isn't the iPhone is.
Is your piece of junk responsible for 80% of mobile YouTube downloads?
No it isn't the iPhone is.
You know why this is so?
It's because the iPhone is for people who just want to enjoy living their life and using the iPhone as a tool to share it, on the other hand your piece of junk appeals to technogeeks who have no life and waste hours tweaking and cooking ROM's on a piece of junk that it so complicated yo need a degree in computer science to change the alarm tone.

joe, 09 Sep 2009When apple make phone user friendly,can somone tell me how to save contacts from phone to Sim ... moreits very easy : setting,mail,contacts ....then scrol down find import sim contacts and will save on phone then syn with itunes will update ......hope this helps
Apple's limitations/restrictions are what kill this phone for me. Bluetooth headset support ONLY, still no picture messaging, lack of compatibility with other phones(itunes/quicktime)and the camera could be much better. Atleast put a led flash.
What the iphone does well it does the better than any phone. For multimedia/web browsing it is the best with one of the best if not the best display in the business. Still the best touch UI I've used. Great music player and playback.
Waiting for SE's satio and hoping they put a 3.5mm jack on it before release. Hopefully the touch UI is as good as the Iphones....
