To be fair(ish) people who have iPhone will be able to upgrade to iPhone 2, I dare say you could cover the cost (£99 in most instances) by selling your old one... when I get the new one I'm giving mine to my girlfriend because she's not bothered about GPS and 3G, she likes using the browser for facebook etc so it's not all bad. I do think that the US market has been ripped off though, we are offering a pay as you go option and 18 month contracts rather than 24. Sorry about the rant, It's just annoying when people constantly state opinion as if its sold gold fact :(
yea i see what you mean now and yea people do tend to look at the phone in their way but comon to some extnet they have the right to spically here....this is a rip off to people who waited in line all day just to get the iphone and now apple realease a 3g one.....thats not right man, but yea i see what you mean by fools cause their are alot of people here who are just company fanboys, like me yea i'm kinda a nokia fanatic...hahaha, later bro......
Oh yeah and yes, I personally have an iPhone, and we have 6 demo units in my store and have had since November, so don't try and tell me I've never used one lol
No, that's not how I treat my customers, I will ask people questions about their lifestyle and how that affects their wants/needs, so therefore if someone such as yourself comes into my store, I won't slate the iphone and say get the N95 or the Samsung Tocco or Soul, I will suggest the right phone to suit those needs and requirements. What a lot of people are guilty of here is greed, it is not Apple's duty to make YOU the phone YOU want, so why do people keep trying to change it to suit them. It really angers me when people say it's a bad phone jsut because it doesn't tailor to them, hence fools.
Tempting....but doesn't have what i want; Bluetooth, solid phone camera and expandable memory, 8gb is simply not enough for today's files and strangely now it's wider, taller and fatter to accommodate 3G?
[deleted post]Read the review properly! It'l cost $199 on a contract
And what's with the lack of secondary camera for video calling??
To bad it still lacks whats neaded to the a good buisness phone. Its good for fanboys and uneducated people who want a phone/mp3/gps but it sucks in the corporate issues.
apple like to play people...
see the price
compare to the old iphone price
a big different...
see the 3G version design, nothing change at all
However, you cant leave the store until your phone is connected and activated. So, the price is only cheap as the networks are subsidising most of the value of the phone. Looks like Zibri may be out of a job.
So, for those that wont have the iPhone launching in their country and going to have to look elsewhere.
APPLE = FAIL
To bad it still misses some obvious functions like memory card slot , bluetooth or front camera. What 3G phone is this if it doesn't support video-call?
man the war has just began, its not like we were neck deep in the Nokia Vs SE war, most of the people were divided amongst them but now theres HTC, samsung and as if that was't enough now apple have brought the mac fanatics....the war has just began, make sure your on the right side.......

Alex, 10 Jun 2008OK, I work for O2 in the UK and I would like to pass comment on a few things... No 3g calli... moreyou probably put your hands on an iphone either. Only "0.01%" use the voice call, because only those people has phones with videocalls and access to 3G network. Of course you won't answer a video call of a stranger, right? But you will answer your friends and family.
It will be for sale in brazil 'til the end of year, but this price is not possible, too few people would agree on 2 years contract. But luckily it can't be locked by any company, since there's laws that prohibits that.
No videocall camera? The coollest thing on 3G is the videocall, the increase on bandwidth of the network it's just an improvement. What to talk about the same old 2MP camera... shame on you apple. This iphone is the same with a the gps built in. It's most like the designer thought that putting a videocall camera on front side would make iphone look uglier.
Great phone... But I'll never buy one.... Not that i can't afford it... Simply because
No Video, No Bluetooth, No video call camera. Crappy spec with a flashy OS.
Btw this is an opinion, so it cannot be incorrect. And is based on user experience :P
i work for att and yes the price will be $199 8GB and $299 16GB for new activations and qualified upgrades with 2 year agreement so yes is very cheap and it will be very cool
Alex, 10 Jun 2008OK, I work for O2 in the UK and I would like to pass comment on a few things... No 3g calli... moredude if you work for o2, is that the way you treat customers......what when someone comes into your office to get a plan you offer them a iphone and they say just casually no man its nothin new to the old iphone just 3g and gps.....so than you erupt saying everything you just said calling people fools and all......man i've talked to alot of service provider salesmen and all seem so calm and 'flowing' with all the phones.....dude relax ok its just a phone if you like it thats great but other people can give their opionins and i agree with alot of them that its not really much of an upgrade just a way to rip off people, they should of put 3g in the origianl thing and in iphone 2 they should of had a 5mp cam.....i surely would of got it than, i mean its interface is like no other but companies are catching up pretty fast, espically the touch flo 3D on the pro, man that is insane for a wm pc.....not that is a upgrade.......peace dudes......thats my opinion
