SBMG, 23 Jul 2012guys how's your iPhone 4 now? does it smoothly play all your apps, games specially the latest ... moreIt all truly depends on how much you are willing to spend.
IMO, the price of a particular model of the new iPhone (i.e. 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB if things stay the same) would not be far from that of the 4S when it first came out. If you think you already have enough, or you still have enough time to save up for one before it comes out then by all means get the iPhone 5.
If you want to save money then get a new or used iPhone 4S or iPhone 4 which are still less than a year old to take full advantage of the warranty. Under certain ciscumstances, you could have an iPhone that had not gone past its warranty swapped for a "new" one by Apple themselves. I say "new" as the replacement unit that would be given to you would likely be a refurbished one, although new internal and/or external components have been put in to make it looking practically as new as possible. Anyway, refurbished units still have to pass through Apple's quality control.
Whatever iPhone you choose, be it new or used, I would advise for you to get a SIM-free phone. You can always get new and SIM-free iPhones fro your local Apple Store. If you go for a used phone, find one that has already been officially unlocked by Apple themselves, or get the seller to do that for you without having to use Gevey SIMs or to jailbreak the iPhone. I have nothing against Gevey SIMs or jailbreaking, but nothing compares to the peace of mind that a SIM-free or officially unlocked iPhone brings.
guys how's your iPhone 4 now? does it smoothly play all your apps, games specially the latest ones without any lags or crashes? because I might get one, the 32gb version.
My iPod touch is broken. I want a new iPod then I need a phone ( some Sc*mbag stole my One S ), so I am thinking of putting it altogether to an iPhone.
so which is much better? wait for the iPhone 5 for the 4s to have a mark-down at its market price or get iPhone 4 ASAP ?
help me make a decision that I won't have any major regrets because it's gonna be my first iPhone.. tired of android
reply ASAP, thanks.
Arjun, 21 Jul 2012Face time is not free service in some country.....plz check it with ur service provider.....No, I don't agree that in some countries you have to pay in order to do Facetime... Not at this moment at least. When the iPhone 4 came out and introduced Facetime, you could only do that via a WiFi connection either at home or elsewhere. That still holds today with both iPhones 4 and 4S.
When iOS6 comes out later this year, that update will finally allow both iPhones to do Facetime via 3G networks. Only then would we have to pay to do Facetime, as accessing such a service via 3G may be at a premium cost with some networks. Even I myself am confused: would Facetime over 3G eat up voice call minutes (like in doing video calls through any other smartphone), or would it eat up mobile data?
But then again I don't see Apple removing Facetime via WiFi with iOS6 so IMHO you still have that option to do it for free.

DeVille, 13 Jul 2012I just got a 32Gb iPhone4 here in Bombay, India and I'm facing some issues setting it up- -... moreTake back up of ur all data using itunes including of installed applications. U can copy ur contacts using micrsoft office outlook. Send it to it and then send back from outlook to ur desired phone, thats how I did. And yes, u do have landscape mode for typing not just potrait if ur not getting to landscape mode on rotating then it means ur lock is on, to unlock it simply double click on the menu button and then move ur finger from left hand side to right hand side at bottom on where applications r displayed when u use it on screen. There u will see music player with play/pause with fast forward and rewind buttons and next to it is the lock button click on it then it will be unlock. The icon u have on ur status bar of lock at right hand side will be disappeared and it will come back with same method. The use of this lock to stop rotating mode for texting, music etc as many doesnt like using it.

when will apple release factory unlock procedure or the software to unlock the phone? i cant update my phone since im just using a gevey sim. :(
I went to get an iPhone 4 just to see what the fuss was all about and this is after using an Android (HTC Desire S). Within 10 minutes, I switched back. The massive problem I have with the iPhone is interface and navigational issues. There are NO WIDGETS which means everything has to be done by clicking on a button - even world clock has to come from a stupid application button. You CANNOT DELETE DEFAULT APPLICATIONS and the ones which are set to default are not even the usual default ones such as games and notes.
SAFARI SUCKS, the internet on the phone is absolutely terrible such as making things bigger, cutting and pasting things are a mission unlike Android.
The APPLICATION STORE is also terrible. For the life of me I can't stop it from asking for my iTunes account details everytime I want to download something and the store is very limited compared to Android.
You're also STUCK WITH DEFAULT RINGTONES.
For the life of me, I can't begin to think why people like iPhones.
If customisation is what you want as well as ease of navigation if you depend on widgets, don't get an iPhone. Simple as that.
