These open OS's aren't for the consumers benefit they are for phone networks benefit.
Apple is almost the only company which doesn't allow networks to load a phone with garbage.
indigo, 15 Aug 2010see m not going by what ppl say,the things that really exite me abt d ip4 r d user experience,... moreThe SIM contact list is next to useless it stores one name and one number in it's 64 or 128kb of memory.
I prefer a proper contact list with multiple numbers, email addresses, street addresses, photo and notes which cannot be stored on the SIM, I like syncing OTA with GMail, Yahoo, MobileMe or others as when I add a contact on my laptop it is on my phone straight away and when I add a contact on my phone it is on my laptop straight away, if I lost both my phone and my laptop I can access all my contacts from anywhere with an Internet connection.
Get with the times, SIM contacts are so 1995, although none of the CDMA Droids or the HTC EVO have SIM's either go have a whine to them as well after your done writing down your contacts in a little book, like your grandmother does.
For those who dislike Iphone...try using the phone for a while before you make those judgment. In fact, you should if you want to "tear down" the technology and state of the art test facilities that Apple has put into this product.
Is pointless to literally hear say and start your own version of "Iphone sucks..." story. Use the phone! And, start your statement as "I have used the Iphone, and I found it...." then I would say your story is worthy of our time.

also, with android, you gain the open OS and tons of features, but you trade reliability for it. thats the good thing about apple, its OS doesnt change much, so porting things over is very easy, but with android, you sorta have to gamble which device will get which update. you can root your device and get the rom version of the latest update, but then you have the same issues of jailbreaking, it voids warrenty....so both have bad things about then, and both are popular in the media...and sadly, both have die-hard fanboys that will defend the phone and its OS without any logical thought
ill be getting a new phone this week since ill be renewing my contract, im just trying to decide what is best for me lol, atm iphone 4 is still a better option imo since android hasnt finalized a top end OS version, and is constantly growing....which is great, but its doing it too fast and it leaves some devices in the dust simply because of hardware limitations. maybe next year ill be more convinced to get an android, but hey, im still tempted by the captivate, the thing is just amazing^^

just observe what negetives i hav written abt d ip4 n den think deeply n make ur choice frm ur heart,just go dont go by popularity or d media hype.

still, its less than a year now till iphone 5...or 4gs comes out lol, and most things last past the warranty anyway:P but yea, i can understand wanting to hold on to it just in case.
im still not sure if i should get this or the samsung captivate xD, both phones are too awesome
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2010why not just jailbreak your phone and remove the restrictions?i dont know abt other countries but in my country airtel n vodafone exclusively provide d iphone n jailbreaking d device would permanently void d warranty,so it remains a restriction if i want 2 njoy may warranty as well.
ok Guys this is how it works much of u hates specs:
imagine this on picking a partner:
(iPHONE4) charm type (they dont need to speak to please you)
no brains but somethings there that complete you everytime you woke up, its feels a decorated home when u see your partners beautiful face.
(nokia,samsung,sony,etc)sense of humor type(basicaly all ugly thats y humor is all they can do)
ok at first it completes you he make u smile but life is not all about smile,
something is missing and you find it hard to figureout
both are equal it depends on the user so stop comparing specs.

i do respect apple but dey hav simply dissappointed me dis tym,may b next tym dey could cum up wid something gud dat can do atleast d most basic function dat is 2 make a call
P.S samsung does make good phones but not necessarily d best,m writing d review using my samsung phone,but 1 thing dat dey do is make basic phone functions work like a normal universal SIM card slot.
Ppl dont go by d controversies or d media hype trust ur hearts n make a gud decesion which u dont have 2 regret in d future n do care abt ur hard earned money,
as for i will never use d ip4 coz i am an independent person n cant use a device which has so many restrictions 2 it,nmay b in d future apple comes up wid something gr8 i might purchase it.
All d best n god bless us all
see m not going by what ppl say,the things that really exite me abt d ip4 r d user experience,d screen n thousands of applications on d app store n really gr8 n stable hardware...wow
but the negetive points of the ip4 r
microsims c'mon i dont want to sync contacts wid gmail etc.n i cannot copy my old sim contacts
i live in worlds biggest democracy so i have d freedom of chosing my fav network provider without jailbreaking my expensive device n not use which network provider apple dictates me 2 use
agreed dat fm radio dese days is full of shit but can b handy sometimes lyk listening 2 a match commentry when m on work or in a remote area.
What to do if my battery gets completly damaged say in 2yrs i can just throw my device in d bin but with other manufacturers i can get a new battery frm market n njoy using my phone
no bluetooth sharing of files,my 6yrs old sony ericsson k750i can do dat even 2day,n no memory expansion option
no listening 2 music via bluetooth headset n even 2day n stereo speakers rhame for such reputed company.
Again d painfuk experience of d itunes n m drag n drop option.
Video calls just on wifi cmon apple
going by dese negative points i will never purchase an ip4.
Iphone 2g,3g,3gs were all gr8 devices but not d ip4.

Features that are missing in iPhone are maybe due to design decision of the company. For example Samsung Galaxy does not have camera flash, but it does not mean that they can't make it.
[deleted post]1. You should search in Google. Says that it should be in Croma Stores in August. I am not in India so cannot verify this.
2. Post in the correct thread. Why on earth are you asking when the Olivepad will launch, in India, on the iPhone 4 comment section?
