As a dealer and someone who sells the phone on a daily basis. There are better phones out there for sure. The iphone has some unique features, but you are at the mercy of Apple software, and that is NOT a good thing. There are more issues with apple software on their computers and phones than there are with Microsoft Vista. I'm glad I decided on the Blackberry Bold
the first i phone production is stopped - maybe the people who brought there i phones should throw there old i phones away - thats what apple wants in my guess - so the customers will buy a new apple 3g oh wait another release throw that away too and buy another apple i phone 3gs . by the way the i phone 3g is around 600 euros and now the i phone 3gs is around 620 euros . the new i phones still missing front video caller cam and full bluetooth support . whats the point of all this ? and many more options still missing . i wonder whats the next i phone version is called maybe they can add a fully working bluetooth option to it and release it with a name like apple " i phone 3gs bt " . what a shame .
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009Dont get me wrong, this phone along with the other flagship phones are really nice. Beautiful ... morewhy?:)
why you should pay 2 or 3 times more for Porsche, if you can buy Ford or Opel much cheaper?:)
You even could say that you can fit more baggage and frinds to your Ford, however it never ever will be Porsche:) Do you get what I mean?
Want to understand this better? Just borrow iPhone from your friend for a couple of days, use it, and you will understand "why":)
Dont get me wrong, this phone along with the other flagship phones are really nice. Beautiful pieces of technology. But why is it so expensive. These devices are supposed to be a substitute for carrying a laptop around all the time. But I found that you can buy a good notebook, as well as a phone (midrange) and still have some change to spend on what ever you like.
Although I can afford to get these phones, I cannot justify spending so much on a device that should be cheaper. Who ever thought that mobile phone prices would ever be almost two times that of a notebook or desktop pc.
Has anyone had any hands on experience with the iphone AND the Samsung omnia HD? Are there any major flaws with either making the other the choice to go for? Thanks.

Hammering my mates in games like World War,Vampires, Mafia Wars and lot's of others, they are like the Facebook games, a lot of fun.
I'm going to be bluntly honest about the reason I purchased my iPhone..... at the time of purchase it had the best internet plan when renewing my phone contract, and I liked the idea of being able to download so many decent games and apps for free from the app store. I notice that not many people in this forum have mentioned that the iphone has access to an app store with umpteen amounts of free apps and games - this was one of my main reasons for getting the phone - what about the rest of you?
I am recieving problems related battery... I think I shall change 3.0 again to 2.1 or 2.2....
I didn't know why this is hapenning with me... I hav to charge iPhone twice a day...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The latest version of the iphone can now do alot of these things, barring a few . If the features that still cannot be done by the iPhone are really essential to you then consider that another brand of phone may be more suited to your needs.......

Jack Nicolson, 26 Jul 2009Hey man don't say all that stuff,apple fan boys cant "handle the truth."lol...agreed!!..cant handle d truth that they paid so much but the phone didnt surpass the high expectation..hahahaha
M@hathir, 26 Jul 2009all the fact is correct..actually its posted by gsmarena..check out the column on the left..ip... moreYou'll find that cut, copy and paste work, well implemented you don't need a stylus to do it like on WinMo devices, MMS works in lanscape too, you can paste in full size photo's, webpages or whatever you care to copy.
QuickOffice is available with creation and editing of word and excel documents, there are lots of Apps for remote admin of computers, servers and networks.
YouTube and other video sites cater to the iPhone as iPhone OS has by far the largest share of the mobile browser market with over 50% of the World's mobile browsing done on iPhones, Symbian comes in second followed by RIM, Android and then you get Winmo.
WinMo's fine if you are a pasty faced loser who spends most of the day hunched over a computer screen of your $700 Dell in your parents basement and have hours to spare cooking up the latest ROM.
