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.

Kensington will only charge up to 50% from a 10% battery.

It is true that the iphone is for those who can afford it, but that does not mean that only because you can afford it, you have to buy it.

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.
JRF, 03 Aug 2009I don't think listening to music and using the web is multitasking as even a simple Sony Erics... moreIf you do not consider web browsing and listening to music at the same time a multi tasking feature, what would you call it then? Two tasks at the same time? LOL. Switching apps on the iphone is so seamless and fast that there is no need to have multiple apps running at the same time, which would drain battery life faster anyway, except those apps that do make sense to be open and running at the same time, like music player and internet for instance. I'm not a blind iphone fan. I know that it has missing features, but I know very well that its good features outweighs its missing features. I also know that its missing features are really quite impractical in the first place, and not really being used by everyone (like video calling). As for my next purchase, I'm really considering the SE Satio, for it supports US 3G frequencies. But of course I have to personally demo it first to check out its UI for myself. But that plan could well be changed if the next gen iphone 4G proves to have better display resolution and add more useful and practical features. So we'll see. But Satio really looks promising for me.

If you want factual information on specs, simply read the SPECIFICATIONS tab for the iphone 3GS. Also, read the official GSM review here as well. Or, visit the Apple website for the walkthrough video. Stop the pretense would ya.
JRF, 03 Aug 2009I would also like to comment about what someone said about "the iPhone is for people who can a... moreI have always bought spare chargers for all my phone's going back sixteen years, except my first one where the only car charger available was a $600 car kit.
Now if you use your phone for business and being off the air can lose you money spending $10 or $20 on a back up charger is a no brainer.
If such a vast sum is beyond your reach try Ebay.
Just one other point - i've heard some of these have over-heating issue's? Any truth in this?
Craig, 03 Aug 2009Thanks, yes i did realise that, and points taken, i think i will buy a 3gs sometime this week,... moreNo prob! Good luck! and enjoy your purchase, as long as it fills your needs than you don't have to listen to others complain and insult one thing or another :)
I would also like to comment about what someone said about "the iPhone is for people who can afford it and afford to buy all the chargers you need" (something like that) I really really think that comments about "iPhone is for people with money" are just bull. I can garantee that most people with money these days don't want to waste it on anything just because you can. I, for example, can easily afford the iPhone either full priced or contract, but I don't think the fact that spending all that money I earned with my energy at work on a phone plus a charger for the car, house and office just to keep it working for a day is the smartest thing. I surely wouldn't brag about it either. It's like saying that you like wasting your money. I would agree that the 3GS is better than other phones including better than the 3G and 1st iPhone, but I don't like the fact that its battery is to weak to support the phone for one full day.
And also, if you're a Nokia fan boy or a SE fanboy, or anything like that, and want to succesfully bash the iPhone, make sure you make a point that really matters, megapixels are irrelivent if the camera's sensor is too small to make good quality pictures so I dont know, just make sure you know what you're saying.
