i have heard that the antenna problem is worse in the US due to the different frequencies they use, though that may be total rubbish.
got to be honest, ive got a htc HD2 and i think it's a great alternative to the iphone. never thought windows could run so smoothly, and modding is much fun.
also got android 2.1 running on it now on a dual boot. hurrah!

Settle down buddy. It's not "rubbish" just because someone experiences something different from you. :)
Yes, the Nokia E71 is a great phone. I had it for over a year and a half. One of the best Nokia devices ever. Yes it had good battery life. But come on, let's be honest here...the phone was not that fast! If you compare it to the latest Android phones or the iPhone, Symbian pales in comparison! But I must say, I've used the Nokia E72 and the E71 is actually a little faster!

I just want real replys back about it not I hate apple people complaining. I also live in Australia so im not sure if that makes a difference.
Hey Ally - nice to read an actual useful post for once! The BB Storm is a good phone but in my opinion no where near the iPhone 4. In fact, I would put the BB Storm below the iPhone 3GS and the BB Bold as well. I quite liked the BB Bold 9700..BB tried to get into the touchscreen party with the Storm and it didn't quite work out.
Yes I would say to certianly go for the iPhone 4! Which is your carrier: Optus, telstra, vodafone....? I don't know anyone in Australia with the iPhone 4, but from what I've heard and read, there have been hardly any network/antenna compalaints. I use iPhone 4 on 02 in the UK and it's great.
I actually feel sorry for the people in the US who can only use the iPhone 4 (non jailbroken that is) on AT&T. Is the US the only major country with just one iPhone carrier? In the UK, we have 5 choices! And I'm pretty sure in Canada they have at least three choices. Hopefully, in the near future, Verizon gets it in the US as well!

And let me also add that I think the moderators of this site are doing a terrible job. I often post sensible, useful posts and I get the message "Your post will be published once it is approved by a moderator." If that message comes up, the post never gets published! Most of the time though, the post immediately gets added.
Shouldn't the moderators here delete posts that obviously make no sense and are written by haters? Funnny how the posting rules clearly state: "No bashing - deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand".... "Be polite and use common sense"... "Please no foul language"... Oh, and the funniest one: "English only." (I can only dream about that!!!!)
Yeah right! I think the moderators need to do a better job of actually MODERATING this forum so that it actually sounds like a useful place instead of a bunch of 10 year olds fighing over a toy.

It knows which apps to run in the background and which ones to suspend, making it very efficient and uncompromising."
Yes! You hit the nail right on the head! See my below post as well. That's what many people here don't seem to understand. And the funny part is that most people just read articles that may say "oh yeah the iPhone 4 does not give full multitasking.." blah blah blah.... and they make these stupid assumptions..
People, the iPhone 4 DOES have multitasking. It's just that Apple controls particluar Apps...that is, certain apps may simply pause in the background if they don't need to go on running. Have you people actually tried "real multitasking" on an Android? Isn't is slow? Doesn't the battery get drained easily? And don't even mention multitasking on Symbian! I had a Nokia E71 (good phone) and the battary life was not bad...but if you tried to run more than 3 apps in the background, it was a nightmare!
The multitasking on the iPhone 4 is more than sufficient.

Anonymous, 01 Aug 2010i would like to ask you..do you really know what is the multitasking???
go and see the noki... moreWhat is all this about multitasking? Most of you people here who go on about multitaking, do you even know what it is and do you even use it?
Yes, there IS multitaking on the iPhone 4. It's just controlled to some extent by Apple to improve battery life. For example, if you are running Pandora and you want to open another App, you can do that without a problem. If you are using the net and you want to open another App, no problem. Certain apps may pause instead of simply running in the background..it's better that way because it saves on the battery.
As a result of Apple's system, the phone will crash much less often than Android phones and run faster as well.
The way Android handles multi-tasking is an abomination. It's just plain wreckless. I don't like the phone being totally open to anyone. It's not a PC, it's a phone. I can't afford to have my phone crashing because someone wrote a virus or malware for it. With Apple they control exactly what can be used and sold in the store so programmers have to meet a certain level of coding and a certain level of security with people's information when it comes to getting their apps approved. Apple's model, in my opinion, makes more sense for the phone. The Windows model or in this case the Android model makes more sense for a PC.
Saying that Android is growing by leaps and bounds is fine, but look at what it was when it came out. Of course it's growing there was nothing else for it to do other than get better! I think Android is a great alternative to the iOS, but honestly the battery life of those phones are awful. I have yet to speak to someone who has the antenna problems and I know a number of people who have iPhone 4. I have yet to speak with a satisfied Android customer even among my more pragmatic programmer friends some of whom actually have the Samsung Galaxy S or the Nexus One. Some of those people own Mac computers but Android phones and they complain the battery life is a serious problem for them on their phones.
Yes, complete "mutitaking" is great, but not at the expense of battery life and system problems. At the moment, usiing three apps simultaneously on the iPhone 4 is a much better experience than using the same three apps on a typical Android phone.

I got to test the Galaxy S, HTC Desire and a few others but honestly they all felt cheap with the cheap plastic materials and the Android OS is a wannabe iPhone OS.
Not saying it in a hatred way. I respect the Android for it's customisability etc etc but i still prefer the iPhone OS for everyday use and quality.
Nokia's Symbian is out of the question completely. The N900 Maemo 5 is hardly available anywhere and is expensive so that's out of reach.
iPhone is still the king. That's why it is selling in it's Millions Worldwide. It's the best"
Haha! Yeah the haters are so funny. But you get these at all messageboards so it's nothing really unique to the iPhone. It's just that the iPhone is so popluar that it gets the most haters. Kinda like sports..just go to an ESPN messageboard...you'll get the most haters on articles on the NY Yankees, LA Lakers, and Manchester United.
And you can distinguish haters so easily because they're posts are so stupid and unintelligent..most of them sound like 5-10 year olds!
And 90-95% of the haters here have never even used the iPhone 4! That's the strangest and funniest part! They just post comments because of what they think they know!

"MobileMe's Find My iPhone Feature Used To Track Down Robbers, Again
Apple’s Find My iPhone feature has once again had a hand in returning an iPhone to its rightful owner after it had been stolen, and thankfully this time the victim decided to turn to the police instead of trying to personally solve the case.
The victim, whose name has been withheld, told the Pittsburgh police that three robbers held him at gunpoint, which later turned out to be a pellet gun, and forced him to hand over his wallet, PIN number, and iPhone. After the confrontation he quickly called police and cancelled all of his credit cards, but he didn’t stop there.
Later on in the day, the victim decided to use MobileMe’s Find My iPhone feature to attempt to hunt down the perpetrators, assuming they weren’t savvy enough to realize the iPhone’s capabilities and simply shut the device off. As it turns out, they weren’t. The Pittsburgh Police were able to apprehend the suspects at a local restaurant after the victim had tracked their location.
The three suspects remain in police custody and they will be charged with two counts each of access device fraud, conspiracy, receiving stolen property and possessing instruments of crime.
The moral of the story is that crime really doesn’t pay, especially when you are trying to steal an iPhone.
The Samsung sends a text message when the SIM is changed.

I don't hate the iphone I just don't like the whole apple control. I'm in New Zealand and this has just been released for $1499 dollars, way to expensive when you can get a Samsung Wave here for $570. They are very similar phones both with there plus and minus, but $900 dollars difference in price. C'mon Steve your taking the piss aren't ya!!
