It is a shame taht we have to pay more than 800$ to get an I phone in BELGIUM. Only one provider is selling them (Mobistar). They got the market in theur hands and they make a lot of profit!!!!!
Please APPLE do something about that 'dicatatory' way of providing a public cellphone!!!!!!
Why does an IPHONE has to cost 4 times the price as in the US??????????
I bet Orange will give a free gift with the phone ; a mobile case from Banana company ..... Hehe :)
Murad (Istanbul), 08 Jun 2010apple's idea of videocalling is majorly flawed,i bought my first 3g phone in Australia in &quo... moreit's probably so third party developers can take advantage, such as Skype or Fring.
iPhones have been able to recieve video calls since last year using Fring.
Then there's the most common use of front facing camera's, self portraits.
apple's idea of videocalling is majorly flawed,i bought my first 3g phone in Australia in "march 2003" and the main reason for buying it,was the ability to make videocalls which was truly revolutionary, i could make videocalls only within the same carriers but that problem was fixed few years ago,now i can make video calls to any other carriers, apple is integrating this feature into their bestselling device 7 years after i bought my first 3G handset with video calling ability,as being so late isn't embarrasing enough you can only make video calls over "wifi" not even over "3G" or and only to other iphone 4 owners !? How lame is that ? come on apple who you kidding,i expected much better from iPhone 4, i reckon the android based devices will kill of the the apple hype!! Samsung galaxy i9000 or htc desire and htc4g handsets are much more advanced implementations than the iPhone4 ! there is a very good alternative against the ipad as well again from google android based devices.
ps: for my fellow countrymen in Turkey who wanna get the iPhone4,it will be released early August.
Lol we sell the unlocked 3GS now here for 699 and 799 but dutch people dont but that as easy. We will see what the new one will cost without the simlock :-P
Phew. Tmobile USA didn't make the list. Thank you Tmobile USA. That thing needs to stay in the juicer where it belongs.
Cliff, I'm sure 4G's will show up unlocked at a premium like they did with the 3G(S).
But yeah, T-mobile is pretty much the worst primary provider of the three that serve the Netherlands.
T-mobile NL cant handle all the smartphones on there 3g network. Calls are dropped and no internet on your iphone or other smartphone. And the are again the company too sell the iphone 4?? I think a lot of people will go back too Vodafone NL or NL Kpn. So i also think it will not sell as good as the 3GS.
What about Turkey? It will be probably Turkcell and Vodafone again. I think.
India & nepal releasing date is september ha they already will buy samsung wave,samsung i9000 galaxy s and nokia n8 too late
whatever happened to t-mobile.
It may be cheaper to buy the handset in a couple of months and use a sim-only tariff.
