Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010Haters ?? lol, why would anyone hate a product ? i don't think its living or capable of hurtin... morePlease read the comments of those whom I reply to :)
Their comments are hateful and filled with lies and silliness just to spite the iphone and offend its users.
But you are right in asking why should anyone hate a product. No one should. Hating is not nice.
Opinions aren't always good and they're not always a fact :)
Lol what's so funny is majority of the posters here are non iPhone owners!!!!! Ha ha I own a 3GS, which in my opinion n for many millions others, is the probably one of the best touchscreen handsets out there. So therefore I love the Apple brand. So it's concerning if ppl have problems with the iPhone 4, which is the next step from the 3GS. So really iPhone 4 n Apple customers should be doing most of the chat, instead we have Apple haters doing their usual preaching, most notably how their crappy Nokias are better! Now the burning question is: why does Apple hurt the haters so much? The iPhone is a PHONE so why does it bother them so much? Why does an electrical product make them get so abusive? It's crazy!!!! iPhone haters really are sad lonely people who need to get a life. People who don't have an iPhone but want to provide comments that are sensible n debateful, even if they are against Apple, is fine. That's the nature of debate. People who come here just to bash Apple n their customers are sad sad sad people.

I cannot believe Apple is trying to insult my... moreUmmmm sir, the 30 day return policy is good at any Apple store around the world. All AUTHORIZED stores that carry iphone got the memo from Apple. So if you are in tge UK. Go to the Apple store and return your wife's iphone4 there.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010Yes they are jealous of iphone users, because for some practical reasons, they cannot have it.... moreLol are u serious ?? Iphone 4 is not a car as u know so anyone could get it. For me i can get 6, 7, 10 if i want to but i got stung already by my old 3GS which i gave my younger brother, he likes the games and those entertainment apps.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010I laugh when people say that when someone says something against apple that they are jealous. ... moreYes they are jealous of iphone users, because for some practical reasons, they cannot have it. So it hurts them to know that there is an amazing device out there that we are enjoying, and they cannot because of Apple regulations and restrictions :)

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010Just to set things straight with Apple fans. This is not your fault and i am not laughing at y... moreJust to set things straight with you as well. We iphone users are not happy with this death grip issue as well just like the rest of you aren't happy with your unresponsive, laggy, freezing, poor performing phones :) But you know what, we all deal with our own phone issues.
One good thing about this iphone4 issue is. We EXACTLY know what to avoid so the signal wouldn't drop when there is one. While with other phones, issues just happen and their users have no clue how the heck it happened, lol, so they just remove the battery to reboot when their phones freeze.
But if you know of a perfect phone. Please tell us what it is so we can buy it.
Apple did apologize for any inconvenience this death grip has causes their users and is even working on a resolution.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010Who's lying? Not me, but you. You said dropped calls? That would be at&t... moreIphone dropped calls are not from AT&T, lier its from the Iphone 4 itself, here is a source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rfr3TYtuR8
File transfer is important and it isn't, because anybody wants ur songs. People want to share everything from pictures to files to word documents, to PDF files. Things that u might not see as important to u.
U are seriously bragging about Facetime ?? No seriously what do u do sit at home and "Facetime" with another person sitting at home while both have the iphone 4 ? U really have so much time to waste, and what are the chances it would work unless every person in the planet has an iphone 4.
And yes u can't do anything without iTunes. Update for e.g.
And why do u get a device if u know u must get bumper for it ?? it should be built durable for ur everyday use, because it is a phone, and it should be with u and believe me accidents do happen ! The glass shatters my friends and here is a source of a drop test: http://www.ifixyouri.com/blog/?p=186
BTW isn't it supposed to be hardened glass which means durable ?
Wake up dude.
How on earth could apple developers miss something like this kind of problem? Did they not try to make a call with their own phone? lol
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010As I have said, Apple Stores don't even have iphone4's on display the last time I went, but he... moreHi all .. I'm here to explain to you what a SmartPhone in my opinion is incase u forgot :)
Smart:(SMART is secondary because a phone should act as a phone to start with)
1.Multitasking (real multitasking), GPS, Camera, Office word, excel, powerpoint (Reader or editing) etc..
2.Internet browsing, email, etc..
3.Youtube, facebook, twitter etc..
PHONE = COMMUNICATION which means:
1. Phone calls
2. Video calls (not just through wifi and both devices should be identical, it kills the whole purpose) e.g.: lemme sit at home and video call my cuzn while he is at home, unless u have so much time and just figured to waste ur time)
5.Bluetooth (Sharing with other smartphones is a part of communication, not just which to devices of the same brand)
6. Infrared (which is dieing slowly but still used in some devices, which is considred under communication) NOTE: Making all communication types in a phone is good because u can share with any device old or new.
8.Battery life (battery life is under Phone because as long as u have battery u can communicate)
9. USB (Micro, or any.. As its considered a good idea for charging ur fone on any different fone charger other than ur brand)
A smart phone these days have been forgoten for multimedia which doesn't serve in functionality, if a smart phone is not so smart and can't communicate what's the use of it ?! If a smartphone can't serve me and just would let me play with its touchscreen and download games and apps for it then what's the use of it ? U want apps ? Get Ipod touch, u want games get a nintendo DS..
A huge company like Apple had nothing at all, they got consumers by a brilliant marketing strategy which affected lots of people, their marketing strategy is good because they have no functionality so they just did something that looked good and felt good and to a viewer is just nice to see but has no functionality what so ever, and that marketing strategy includes:
Making a big deal out of nothing, and making their brand look the best:
1. Steve jobs kept on saying its the most beautiful and precise thing out there several times and saying isn't that cool ?? (which shows the way he wants u to think abt the product and make u think that its the best, to get excited and go buy it.
2. We have video call (only on wifi) isn't that amazing ?? We had dreams abt it since the Jetsons..(See that's making a big deal out of somthing while its already out there for years)..
3.These r examples of what he said, and go to the apples website, ull see a banner saying the "This changes everything. Again" What did change ? Phone calling ? Touchscreens ? Everything was out there they just polished it to look good for the poor consumers who look at good stuff. Its like seeing a fresh juicy orange which has nothin inside, it's a all looks that's what fools people. There are lots of stuff but I'm just tired of typing.
4. Apple products for example, they brag about having no viruses in their systems which really attracts consumers, well u have nothin compatible to start with to get some viruses and it all feels empty, just good looks and no functions again.
This sums it up for me, a little about me.. I have used every smartphone out there (including iphones) now using a nexus one and blackberry bold 9700 .. I'm not happy till now cause functionality is missing for me, I'm waiting for the N8 which I guess ill settle with, Nokia has served me well through the years and they still do, I'm not a Nokia fan no I have used everything out there,(mostly top tier phones) u name it and ill say yes but out of all phones Nokia (Mostly used coomunicater till the E90) does serve in all SMARTPHONE meanings.
This is not bashing or critisim, this is an advice from a fellow smartphone user, I don't hate apple I approve their fine OS and multi touch features but I said, looks are one thing for the eyes to see not to produce nor funtion.
Oh ya I forgot somthing, to prove apples Weasel marketing strategty, all of u remember the iphone 4 leaking all aorund the world ? A company as big as Apple would let that happen u think :) ?
It is intended and the whole story is intended, so stupid how some people believed that.
Ull ask me why they did it ? Simple, to get people's opinions and know I'd they need to change the shape and looks of it. Why ? Because they want it to look at its best. Why ? Because that's wat they did in everything, just good old looks which serve no purpose :)
Tricky people will always trick u, ull live an empty dream, which wen the time comes and u need somthing ull wake up and say oh that's missing, oh that's not there, oh I can't run this, oh I can't charge my phone I have no micro USB while all devices have it :)

This last 6 month already 3 Apple employees have been exposed by GSMarena readers. You are next, and it's been a long time coming.
Get a clue, 04 Jul 2010How do you explain the fact that on June 30th of this year, I physically went into an AT&T... moreAs I have said, Apple Stores don't even have iphone4's on display the last time I went, but hey if you insist that the at&t store that you went to has them, I will not argue with you.
Majority of iphone users buy cases for their iphones. I'm sure you're one of the very few who doesn't and left handed, right? Lol. Then I guess the iphone4 is not for you :)
Btw, I am right handed, but I always use my left hand to hold my phone and have no problem avoiding that tiny strip that causes the signal drop.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010So Apple is making video calls a reality? The rest of the world have been able to make video c... moreWhat makes facetime special is, it works out of the box. No need for skype, and it's free. It also works smoothly. Video calling may have been out for several years already, but implementatiin is poor, that is why you really don't see people using it. So yes, facetime is special.
[deleted post]Of course dropped calls is a big deal for us. That is why we avoid things that causes the dropped calls :) It's really simple.
[deleted post]Who's lying? Not me, but you. You said dropped calls? That would be at&t's issue, not the iphone's.
We're fine w/out bt file transfer. Why would that be an issue? Are you mad that you can't ask me to transfer my songs to your phone? Hahaha. Buy your own songs buddy.
Glass shatters if you drop it. That's why there are cases for it. It would protect your iphone, plus, it wil eliminate that death grip issue. Cases are not only being made for iphones. All touchscreen phones have cases.
Facetime works smoothly out of the box unlike video calling on other phones that no one really uses :)
No one is being forced to update to any OS. Heck, no one is being forced to buy the iphone. You are full of lies.
You do not need itunes to transfer files all the time. Again you lie.
If Steve is arrogant, you're a meddling, judgemental person. You don't even have the iphone or support Apple products, yet you're here complaining about things that don't concern you. If Steve doesn't care about their customers, why would they even bother with an update?
Apple never bragged about features. What do you want them to do during their keynote? Step out on the stage and then say "This is the new ipuone4" and then step out? Of course they have to do a presentation.
Apple is taking th piss out of their loyal users. I can't believe they're making such bold and false statements.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2010Not allowing adobe flash on the iphone is not badmouthing. It's a business decision. &nb... moreGood one.. Anyone who critisize Apple is a hater, cause nothing is absolutely wrong with the device. Haters are also blocking iPhones reception by standing in front of the 3G tranceiver with homemade aliminium foil hats on their heads. haters are also getting drunk, breaking into Apple ans womiting yellow smudge on the screen. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you work for Apple. You excuses are even worse then Steves. Get a clue.
Ooh, now two different facts are being mixed and playing with words is obvious!!, 1) yes the bar representation in all mobiles are not the real signal of the mobile its called in GSM C1 or C2, but the C1 should give the the real coverage since all the mobile follow the values of C1 for coverage indications, and when C1 in -ve values the mobile will be out of coverage though there it might be a signal from the network. 2) antenna metallic parts shouldn't be exposed to be touched because your body will absorb the signal or because ur body will short circuit the antenna in both cases it will attenuate the reception and thats why the problem is solved by rubber frame (isolator). I'm not sure why its going to be solved by software and why this problem didn't appear in old models (when IOS4 is used as well).....because antennas in old models were isolated so how come it will be solved by SW!!! is it going to give us unreal readings?
