micro sim card only . Means ? Doesnt it support the normal sim card size
Bladerunner , 15 Jul 2010You are right it's not worth the cost, far too expensive, CheersIts not about money, in my opinion anybody who wants can buy it, its not like building a house for example which believe me is a struggle.
Bladerun, 15 Jul 2010Yes that does make a lot of sense, maybe a iPod toch with a nokia 6300 taped to the back of if... moreLol thats funny but why carry around an Ipod touch ? Just leave it in the car or when you're bored use it at home, and carry the Nokia around with you.
Plus i checked Nokia lately and they said an N8 is coming, i liked it i hope its good when i try it out, they also said they are making lots of apps and the touch screen is superb, i checked it out youtube. Well i don't know it may have problems too, but i guess ill wait and see.
[deleted post]Oh yeah and if you don't know, the phone inventor himself is using a Vertu which is made by Nokia, i guess he knows what a Phone means, lol.
Im a tech fan son, but its clear that Apple are doing something to mess up youngsters mind, i don't know it maybe their way of marketing, but for me its not worth it.
[deleted post]Yeh dude I probably do need one, you probably don't.

[deleted post]I dont know but i gave my 3GS to my kid, had trouble with the battery and reception. Its just doesn't feel like a phone, i know everything has problems but this does not feel like a phone for me, its more of a multimedia device, thought its good for games and some entertainment apps. Now with the Iphone 4 having more problems its just hard for the consumers.
Bladerunner, 15 Jul 2010Nice one Troy, nice to read some sense in these threads, it's was to full of bitterness maybe ... moreSo, you didn't notice your man Troy bashing other phones, hmmm? Try and read what he wrote on the Milestone XT720 comment board and you'll know why people come here to bash iPhone. It's just self defense.
Why hate Iphone ? Just dont buy it like i did . Im enjoying my sony x10 , iphone is a good phone just not for me !
open mind..., 15 Jul 2010interest going down, rating going down, the apple is going down and will take steve jobs with ... moreLove all phones dude, some are quirky that's good, all have short comings,
If this phone was perfect it would be less interesting, and you guys would have nothing to write about, god bless the iPhones little quirks.
You owe it big time.
Bladerunner, 15 Jul 2010Nice one Troy, nice to read some sense in these threads, it's was to full of bitterness maybe ... moreLol, thats funny, but how old are people here anyway ? U said it, so Iphone is for teenagers and people who didn't live the phone history which they know nothing about. Yeah no wonder its popular. Good luck children.
Troy, 15 Jul 2010Even with an antenna problem the Iphone 4 is the thinnest smartphone in the world which boasts... moreNice one Troy, nice to read some sense in these threads, it's was to full of bitterness maybe they all were bullied at school by people that had iPhones, that would explain the hatred in the words.
So they now are compelled to bully the iPhone, no matter how great it is.
They will prob get bored soon and move on to another handset.
IOS 4.1 has been released to developers, expect a standard release within days....

People simply use them, wanna bet! this mindset is going tom lead to the downfall of many a corporate nthat thinks this way. Your average 25 year old is tech savvy and gunning for a higher position. He graduates with a posing in mind of a manager or senior manager in a corporate and relies on his interpersonal devices. the Cellular phone has developed into a PDA that most management cannot do without, so he relies on it. Phone provides bad service he reports it, gets no joy he boycotts it. so you lost a client big deal. Wrong! Standard Sales stat says that if you let down/provide bad service/ then that person tells 11 others, so guess what you just lost 11 potential cistomers, shame. make him happy and he tells one maybe two others, awe you got to work hard to make the man happy,SHAME.
Better ,make the man happy or you'll be getting the chop won;t you.
People tend to romanticize the past but mobile phones seem to have no respect for their ancestors. Technology has advanced at breakneck speed and our humble database is nothing short of a time machine. Hop on for a journey in the history of mobile phones. And by the way, it’s history you – our readers – wrote.
We dug deep inside our server logs ten years back. We traced certain trends to present day and we have some interesting charts to show you. It’s all there: how form factor preferences have mutated through the years and how touchscreen has changed the game today.
You will also learn how slimness, weight and screen size went up and down over the years. As you see, we’ve got a long story to tell. But first, let’s explain how we sourced the raw data for this unusual research.
The stats are based on all the GSM phone models we have been adding and updating since 2000. We’ve put billions of page hits in the equation to make sure it’s accurate.
It seems nobody has done similar research so far so we didn’t have a way to cross-check our findings, but everything seems to tie in nicely with our personal observations.
There are two limitations we need to point out.
First off, back in the old days we used to put down only the phones’ announcement date in the database and not the actual launch date. So you may notice a certain time shift in the charts. For instance, a large number of 2003 models were popular in 2004, because it was when they were actually available. That shouldn’t be a problem though, the info is still there.
Secondly, we’ve broken down the raw data into two types of averages. With the absolute averages every model has the same statistical importance (same weight). The second type, the weighted average, accounts for the fact that models have different importance (varied weight) depending on their popularity (measured by user hits).
To put it simply – touchscreen phones have a simple average of 20% of all phones in 2008, but a weighted average of 35%. The absolute average tells us that of all phones one in five was a touch phone, which is a generally unimpressive share. But this same year touch phones generated one third of all the hits on our phone database. They were the most popular (and potentially most high-end) models.
Bear in mind though, that the weighted average is a wee bit skewed towards the more expensive phones, since those generate a disproportionately higher amount of traffic. You know people are not fascinated by run-of-the-mill handsets. They don’t look them up online, they don’t research them – they simply use them.

let's look at the iPhone 4. Advanced Capacitive Touch screen, AWESOME. so what else? oh wait, it's got a brand new circuit design, ummm, 4th generation tech that other Phone providers already discarded as obsolete. ok? guess they doing more with less, what about functionality? Oh great over a million applications, wait, they limited and you have pay like mad for them, hmmm. ok!!!
Well how's the call clarity, average.
Ok, responsiveness is bordering on great. looking better.
Reliability - 0.0 , phone drops more than 5 out of every 10 calls, why????
Reception - oh wait, Apple made a mistake in their OS and report innacurate signal reception, hmmm, ok. Fix does not work?? Problem been present since initial iPhone? What are the developers asleep? Design Flaw, and you only noticed now??
Great memory capacity, but you have to use iTunes, why!
Bluetooth transfer between my iPhone and Blackberry, fails constantly even after succesful pairing, Blackberry reports device not responding, so does my Pc. Bluetooth does not transfer to my wife's nokia, keeps failing. Blackberry to nokia, perfect.
Picture viewing, second to none, WOW.
Conclusion: if you want a fancy expensive electronic photoframe that can sometimes transfer the photos and play music with the option of using it for crappy calls this is then the phone for you...sorry picture frame for you.
