Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Hey Sander: When you buy a phone through AT&T or Tmobile, it is "locked" which means it can only be used on that one network. To unlock a phone is to make it so that the phone will use a sim card from ANY network (Tmobile OR AT&T OR anything). Usually Iphones are never unlocked legitimately, they are usually unlocked by hacking into the phone software (search for "Iphone unlock" on google or youtube and you'll see how it works). You can buy them unlocked sometimes but they cost alot more. There isn't much of a reason to unlock a phone unless you want to use it in another country on another sim card or something. As far as Iphone goes, its probably better just to get it from AT&T for 200-300 US dollars and just be done with it. Unlocking isn't very difficult, but you just want to be sure its what you need to do. Goodluck :)

If you have the 3g, then its not a big change. But if you want an iPhone thats really really great, then I'd wait until next year and see what they create. I personally think this phone is good enough and worth getting. It can only get better from here on out.

Do you think Apple will release the real updgraded iphone next year, so maybe I should wait another year before buying an iphone. What do you think?

Also, after 2 years of using iphone the battery will get worse and worse, but apple wont let your recover it. So basically if the battery dies on you, you can throw away you eur1000 device.
How do you look at this?

i have used alot of phones, Nokia, SE, Samsung, O2. Out of above phones, i just loved the easiness of using nokia. Nokia pcsuite is great, syncing is fast and easy.
My last X-Nokia was N97. Cool phone, looked fancy but same old symbian os. Its like i got BORED of it in 24 hrs, just like other nokias.
So i decided to take a chance and bought my first iphone 3gs. And from the first day it was a blast. the interface is smooth as silk, i mean SMOOTH. I logged on to itunes, got same games and apps. My experience was like using a new gadget, nothing compared to mobile phones in the past. Ofcourse there is no flash, but what u get in return is just awesome. Once u start using the iphone and get used to the speed, i dont think u can go back to using nokia or SE. Thumbs up to apple.... gr8 iphone
i hope this review will help some of u who want to experience mobile phones in a new way....

I would be suprised to see an iPhone 8gb 3gs released. Too small and everyone wants more storage than a piddly 8gb. 8gb is so last year. I'm waiting for iPhone 3GSS in 2010 - Super Speed it'll have 64gb and 128gb memory. 16gb and 32 gb is way to small for my uber usage of this this device.
I pwn devices into the ground, thats why I am called "The Noose".
elina, 07 Aug 2009Apple will launch iphone 3gs 8 gb..in Indonesia? I don't think so. Forget iphone from telkomsel Indo! the price is neck strangling.
The compass in the iPhone 3GS does not work well at all. The voice control doesn't understand what I'm saying either.
My recommendation is to stick with iPhone 3G and just do the upgrade to OS 3.0

All phones h... moreThere is no upgrade for a 3g user for $200, they just got a subsidy when they purchased the 3g. The upgrade price if you have had the 3g for a year or longer is $399 & $499 respectively. The cost otherwise is $599 & $699.
I've just purchased a new cover for my iphone..
it's a skin for the back..
it's called Gelaskin..
it's very beautiful, i'm in love with gelaskin..
i wish i was a gelaskin sometimes

Anonymous, 07 Aug 2009Just dont use GPS on the iphone3gs in your car on a hot day with the sun beaming in your cars... moreAlthough in a way, it's nice that you brought this up. That way consumers can be aware of what could happen with the iphone if you leave it under direct sunlight on extremely hot days. And I guess on any device as well. I'm sure we all want to take care of our devices, and it's nice to learn something from other people's bad experiences.
