DX, 29 Jul 2009Dude, I'm not after a car nor am I complaining. I view this forum to get all the info I need b... moreI am not saying that you are looking for a car. It was simply to make a point. You said that you are looking for a phone that can transfer songs via bt and has fm. Everyone knows for a FACT that the iphone does not have those two features. So it's like you're considering a coupe and then tell the dealership that you would only get a coupe when it would have four doors, lol. As for windows and iphone compatibility. Why do yo need them to be compatible? Can you tell us why? You have a cruisy job? People who have cruisy jobs bring their laptops with them. Don't you think i's better to watch those tv shows on your laptop than on any phone? You're not making sense. I travel as well, and I always take my laptop with me to watch my favorite dvd movies. As for my fav tv shows, i have what we call dvr's. So i can watch it on my return comfortably and enjoyably on my big screen flat tv.
The 3.0 or 4.0 or even in coming year software is still buggy and unstable (presumably fixed with the latest 3.01 firmware)
Screen auto rotation is slower than on the iPhone 3G (presumably fixed with the latest 3.01 firmware)
Limited copy/paste functionality
Limited landscape QWERTY keyboard except in the web browser
No vibration feedback when typing
No advanced XT9 typing
Still no option for turning Predictive typing OFF
NO and YES, NO NO multi tasking (Apple background notification service is in the works to remedy that one)
Numerous messaging features lacking: limited MMS, no SMS forwarding (might be solved by a system-wide copy/paste functionality), no deleting individual messages
Numerous email features lacking: no bulk "mark as read", no search, no sorting of any kind, no ZIP or RAR support in mail, can't send full resolution camera images via mail (they get resized to 800x600)
No call duration recorded in the Calls Log
Weird snooze appointments and cannot set repetitive alerts for reminders
No search in the iPod music library
Sucky video recording
Limited voice dialing
No Bluetooth file transfer or oh YES, NO NO stereo Bluetooth music streaming
No GPS navigation software (TRUE Turn by Turn like a dedicated GPS device)
No FM radio
Long and tedious back up upon sync with CRAPPY iTunes (presumably fixed with the latest 2.01 firmware)
No syncing of Notes and TO-DOs...OH and getting WORSE!
No video calls over the 3G network
The handset wobbles on hard even surfaces
There are a number of messaging downers
Camera has no auto focus, nor video recording… nor any settings at all
Safari browser doesn't support Flash and Java, doesn't have a download manager
Bluetooth support limited to headset use only (no A2DP or file transfers)
No office document editor
No copy/paste functionality
You cannot sync Notes and TO-DOs
No memory card slot (but knowing Apple there will never be one)
this is what u called 10 years ahead of other phone..??hahahahaha...u must be joking right?
RLMAO listen: if Samsung and other vendors dropped the ball on Apple then there would be NO crappy iphone 1, 2 or whatever the heck that is. ur such a kid running ur stupid mouth. All Apple got now is an easy to use phone for most teenages or non business people who is afraid to hack and tweak their phones to max potential, unlike windows mobile users who are very good programmers that can turn ANY winmo phones into either android or a little PC that can do multi tasking.
Ask ANY iphone users (I personally know some) if they can run youtube (again not a full desktop like version like us in winmo OS) AND navigating with turn by turn GPS AND talking on the phone AND...the limits are endless with faster and more powerful CPU and RAM.
so NOW it is so OBVIOUS that iphone is CATCHING UP with other "smart" phones by FINALLY having a simple 10 yrs old copy n paste, LOL, PATHETIC! ok go on what else that iphone is CATCHING UP with 3xxx version, oops, not stupid porn apps from 50k apps, number means NOTHING because MOST OF THEM are JUNKS! iphone IS ONLY good for gaming punks, GET A LIFE!
i`d rather dance in dog poo than buy an Apple I phone 3GS
no flash in browser
camera is pants
video recording is poor
no bluetooth file transfer
need i go on ??
Dani, 28 Jul 2009In quality and UI I would go for iPhone or Sony Ericsson. I agree!Oh hello,dani sani pani.In perfomence iphone and nokia is the best not sony ericsson. Sony ericsson does not have any phone that can beat NOKIA N97 & N96.
Apple is AMAZING!!! I love it so so much. I got it about 1 month ago and I fell in love with it right away. The new keypad is even more amazing I love it a lot. I still cant beleive that i have it is amazing.
Vidas, 29 Jul 2009ok guys, stop doing a children garden here:)
people come here to read and speak about iPhone ... moreMaybe it is 400$ in your ountry, but it is not in mine! Here it's 700$ without that "stuffs" you've got! I would buy iPhone 3G S for 400$ too, but it isn't so cheap here!
It is sad that one comes onto a site like this to get advice, opinions and help from hopefully someone who knows better but it is a waste of time as one has to first read through other peoples personal little fights. This is not what this site is meant for.
If you can't offer constructive advice, STAY OFF and don't waste our time!
ok guys, stop doing a children garden here:)
people come here to read and speak about iPhone 3GS, not your childish arguments about hating Nokia, SE, iPhone, Samsung or whatever...
Regarding iPhone 3GS, so far so good... no overheating, no any problems for me - much faster then 3G, battery life a bit better then 3G.
Who says that iPhone is expensive?
OK, let's see, I paid £400, but I get 12 months of free web and wifi with "iPhone P&G Simcard", also I get access to numerous applications, games, and other fun stuff... so the actual price drops let's say by half.
So why I shouldn't pay £200 for almost perfect UI and web browser, almost perfect **capacitive** screen, 16GB memory and so on...? By saying almost perfect I mean that of course it could be better but anyway there are no better in the market as for now. Honestly, I don't see a better option for me at the moment... maybe because my main requiremnets for the phone are 3.5 - 4 inch *capacitive* screen, good UI and web browser... and iPhone has much more then this:)
In my country you have to order the 3gs. You have to wait 8 weeks before you get one, in europe unbelievable. Crazy.
Dani, 29 Jul 2009didn't you read what i wrote properly?, i said it'd be my second phone just used as a phone! I... moreOh so now you say you will use omniaHd only as a phone.Only as a phone when it has an 8 meg camera,Hd video recording,better screen resolution then the iphone3gs.
Sure whatever you say there dani. Keep hating nokia,it's o k cause in 2 weeks you'll probably love nokia again.
You think i dont know you were also in the n97 forum causing all sorts of problems??
Dani, 29 Jul 2009didn't you read what i wrote properly?, i said it'd be my second phone just used as a phone! I... moreI'm guessing you're probably some 14 year old brat.Mommy i want an iphone3gs now.Dani i already bought you the k850 and the n95 8gb now you want an iphone3gs.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970and yeah i AM BUYING AN IPHONE!! Omnia HD is my contract upgrade!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970didn't you read what i wrote properly?, i said it'd be my second phone just used as a phone! I'm getting it free anyway as a contract upgrade i might even sell it, so stop winjing you hater
Foxy, 29 Jul 2009go the iPhone, it's so much better!yes I probably should get the iphone, to bad the battery doesnt last to long, but browsingwise, appswise iphone indeed, but idont like looks of iphone, the bold is more masculine to me and has a superb screen, very crisp better then iphone, watching videos is awesome and as aplus very good businessphone.
iphones they all look the same, isnt it time to change their appearance? look at motorola now..their razr was a hit a few years ago...they didnt change its appearance..only upgrades...people got tired of it.
