Whoever below who posted that Telstra is 4G, wow, way off. Quad-band DOES NOT mean 4G. Telstra Next-G IS 3G 850MHZ. There are NO 4G networks in Australia. 2G, 3G, 4G, etc has NOTHING to do with the frequencies of the signal. You can buy 2G phones that are quad-band, this does not make them 4G. "Next-G" is just a brand-name for Telstra's 3G network, which happens to use 850MHZ instead of the normal 2100. There are plenty of other 850MHZ networks around the world, America has several, these are also 3G, not 4G. Optus and Voda in Australia now also use a low-frequency signal for their 3G, 900MHZ, which also travels and penetrates further than a 2100MHZ signal. THey, again, are also 3G, not 4G.
When it's available in US, it'll be available here in Maldives. So definitely i'll be buying 1 of the iPhone 4G. So far, it's the best for me.!!!
ok so there`s a date now, to release the phone.. why didn`t apple say anything?
See I think everyone is over anaylizing this whole situtation because seriously Apple has the highest security only some apple employess know the release of a new product the rest find day of thats how so secertive apple keeps their product launch and also do you really think a person who isn't even the main designer of the iphone would be allowed to take a iphone which hasn't even been released or annouced to a bar and loose it?
arh, 17 May 2010why bother with voda / optus when telstra have the worlds fastest 3g network, with supirior co... moreTelstra is not a 3G network, it is in fact quad-band (4G). It utilises 850MHz/1800MHz/1900MHz/2100MHz. It's faster because no other Australian network offers quad-band or 850MHz. 850MHz is the only frequency that can penetrate concrete, lifts and natural environments. You pay that little bit more for a better service and greater coverage.
Iphone will never go mass market because apple only produces phones for high end users.
john, 19 May 2010*not iPhone user* I'm buying a new phone in the summer. I was all ready to go and get the ne... moresimple explanation techie boy. 4G not even announced yet. u got cash - buy symbian^3 N8
Anonymous, 16 May 2010It is the iPhone 4G, There is no 4G Network in Australia, so it will be a LONG time before it ... more4G does not refer to network speed, its is the 4th gen Iphone, and not a very good one at that.. in fact it sucks !!!. Shame on Apple to try releasing a downgraded phone at an outrageous price and trust apple using illiterates to fall for the gimmick.
Look at N8 people and shove your iphones

I'm buying a new phone in the summer.
I was all ready to go and get the next iPhone and thats it, until i came across those htc phones site, and i started watching videos, seeing the OS, specs, apps, evrything...etx. So NOW i have second thoughts ALOT, and im going faaar from the iPhone direction, and towards the Evo (HTC Evo 4G, for you ignorants) direction, and by this i mean ALOT...
I started comparing OS + Specs , i found :
-Android is very amazing OS, complicated (good way), more advanced (alot!), and you can customize pretty much everything
-iPhone OS is pretty simple (actually too damn much), you only get the home page and next page and next page....bla blah blah, which all are just apps' rows.
But on the other side : YOU GET TOO DAMN MANY apps ON THE iPHONE < That is just KOOL. (Still Android Market is growing (rapidly) now it reached 50,000 apps [still 150,000 is MORE errr...] )
ALOT BETTER ACTUALLY in every aspect ...(Bigger screen [4.3"] , faster processor, more ram rom, better camera [ALOT better, 8mp duel flash hd video] )
BUT THE ONLY Advantage FOR iPhone when it comes to hardware is the HUGE gigs [maybe it wud be more than 32 in the next one, wow!] ....still i can buy 32gb memory card [but it means more ca$h]
+iPhone Music Player is The Best.
So You Guys! (Only People Who Do Know What they talking about, iPhone users, others who know tech sh*it........dumbies stay away) Tell me what you think, gimme your thoughts bout the SUBJECT ^
Do you know if the LED Flash will be release finally by Philips ? (Luxeon)
Here's is my question, everybody buys a Blackberry cause you can ping free with your friends with BBM, now if iPhone and bb work together to a program that the BB's and the iPhone can ping together (for anybody who doesn't knows what ping is) Free messaging. I think i am going to buy the new blackberry bold 9650 or the iPhone 4g and the BB is winning cause all my friends have one and they ping together for free now iPhone has wazzup and stuff but that is like 2nd hand food.
