First of all, you have to turn your phone off, then open the back cover, then pull out the battery, and then put in your spare battery. That is already like a minute. Then you need to turn on the phone which takes another minute, or even more, for it to boot up, then it needs another 20 seconds to search for a signal. So as you can see, it takes more than 15 seconds. More like 2 minutes. Recharging is more practical I think. But either way is alright of course. Whichever works for you better, do it.

Either way, you still have to recharge your batteries, and now you have two batteries to recharge. Better yet, I could get those juice packs which doubles the iphone's battery life. Good thing about it is, you don't need to remove the batttery and you can recharge both the iphone's battery and its juice pack together. So there.
can i ask your opinion b4 buying this phone. is this a good phone? compare to omnia?
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2009I have always bought spare chargers for all my phone's going back sixteen years, except my fi... moreI too buy spare chargers its just that they're usually for the car and home, buying more because your phone doesnt last the time you need it really sucks, not because of the money spent, but it seems as its money wasted on a phone that u bought to satisfy ur need of "work on the go". Anyways, my only complaint about the iPhones battery life is that (from what I've read) is that you need to recharge it or keep it connected most of the time, especially for using internet and vids and camera and apps which are the main reasons I'd buy it, if they make it better than that will be perfect, other than that, like I've said before, I actually like the 3gs, just not the other 2.
Brenda, 03 Aug 2009If you do not consider web browsing and listening to music at the same time a multi tasking fe... moreHi! I'll try to answer both comments here: first off, from what I've read multitasking on a phone involves running numerous 3rd party apps on it at the same time and being able to switch between them without closing them, the iPhone does open and run apps really fast and may seem to multitask but when you press the home button it closes the app, music players are abke to run in the background on many basic phones so to say that the iPhone can do that doesnt convince me of its capabilties of multitasking, which is why they made the push notification system for the new SW. And second, what I meant is I hate people saying that stuff about money because people always try to insult you by saying "oh you are too poor to buy the iPhone" which I know isnt what you said, but that was my complaint about those comments. And BTW, the satio seems awesome but I really hate the fact it uses SE proprietary connector, because all of mine would get really loose after a few months. Anyway, I too will await the 4G iPhone, here in mexico we just got the 3gs which seems to be the better deal between the two iPhones available. So anyways, pleasure talkin' to ya!

How else would i charge my spare,in a phone.Exchange sometimes during the day and at night put the dead one back in for a recharge. Now with my n97 and its strong battery 1500 mah,there will be no need for exchanging.

Switching batteries is a pain, pulling the phone apart while you're balancing bits and pieces on your knee and you'd have to do it several times when you want to charge the spare and again when you want to use it.
It can also wipe all your call records on some phones and you can miss calls while you are off the air,
I have a Kensington battery and it pretty much gives me a full charge when I'm out of the office or away from my car, there is no need to turn off the iPhone you can plug it in during a call.
Besides this is a pretty poor excuse, 99.9% of people probably couldn't care less.

Tania, 03 Aug 2009Hi! I want to ask wats different between 3.0 and 3.01... Guys tell me..There really is no difference between 3.0 and 3.0.1 featurewise. There are no additional features in 3.0.1. It's only supposed to protect your iphone from sms vulnerability to hackers, and then some bug fixes to improve the iphone's performance.

JRF, 03 Aug 2009I would also like to comment about what someone said about "the iPhone is for people who can a... moreI am correct in saying that the iphone is for those who can afford it. The iphone is a high maintenance phone. Data plan is required, which is an expensive plan to most people. Not all apps are free either, and the iphone does not support piracy, and a lot of low income symbian and winmo users complain about it, LOL. So as you can see, owning an iphone means spending extra every month so you can make use of what it offers and avail HIGH QUALITY products. Having money and being practical is a good thing. I didn't buy the iphone just so I can have the iphone. I want to be able to have internet access any time and utilize useful apps. So I am not paying extra every month for data plan just because I can afford it. I use my iphone a lot, hence, I need to make sure I can recharge it when its battery goes low. So I didn't buy those chargers just because I can afford it. All smartphones with processors as powerful as the iphone's would always have battery issues.
