Aman Kandhari, 23 Mar 2009How about Group SMS ....? No Mention about it..... I guess I'll wait for N97.... :-(You can do a group sms by creating a new sms and add as many people as you want. The iphone has always had that feature.
Flame, 25 Mar 2009I've used nokia phones for a long time, then SE phones for even a longer time..
I was saving... moreOh yeah. I was the same about it when the IPhone came out in Australia. Then I heard about it from a friend and HELLO IPHONE!!! What would I have done without it XD

I was sure that Apple may be about to release a new version of iPhone, with the release of the upgraded OS, but it seems not before the middle of the year. Oh well, I guess I can wait a little longer.
Re the blog:
Interesting comments, But it shows that most of us do not really read what has been said before, have pet theories which are only half truths, and are mislead easily. Even me. But I think one issue that contributes to the situation, is the lack of a layout that indicates instantly that replies to prior comments are directly associated with them. They may be in strict order of posting, but it can be quite frustrating to link these things up.
One improvement I feel would help here, and with the contextual reply layout, is to include a button (field/arrow-head/ or whatever), to sort the comments either "Latest to Earliest" (as now), or "Earliest to Latest", so that with a click of the mouse, one could read in sequence the whole thread. As this thread has at the moment, 347 comments, and as I have just found your site, I need to see what others have had to say. It is not that easy or enticing at the moment. I do not like reading from the bottom up!
However if I have missed that facility somewhere in the site, please forgive me.
Oh, and I am sweating on the upgraded iPhone, with all the goodies. Please, Apple!!

I agree that Apple is making their improve super fast and good.
I've used nokia phones for a long time, then SE phones for even a longer time..
I was saving some money to buy N97 when it launch in the next couple month. But then I read the news about this apple iPhone OS 3.0.. and that's it !! I never hesitate again to buy iPhone 3G (which I was since it was first launched).
Now I understand why this phone become number 1 in the smart phone industry.. and will always be the leader :)
This the best phone I ever had !!
Thank you apple :)
Berns, 23 Mar 2009Most of these "new" essential functions and tweaks are old school features of most phone brand... moreFirst of all mister, the iphone has a combo of features out of the box that are not found in most phone brands in the market either. Like accelerometer, proximity sensor, visual voicemail, 3.5 screen, glass display, multi touch, etc. Those combo of features aren't on phones before. Before the iphone, screen displays on most phones are below 2.8inches. We iphone users survived w/out some common features found on other phones because the iphone offered other better features, and we knew that in time we would get those features missing ones anyway, which we are. You seem to only like to point out the missing features of the iphone to drag it down, but how about its features that made it stand out among the rest. Like its OS, its smooth UI, Safari, the App Store, etc. The problem with you is, you only know BT, MMS and copy and paste, lol. With tons of apps that we can download on our iphones, bluetoothing, changing ringtones & MMSing photos is low priority for us, lol. The iphone is true to its roots as a TOUCH device, not stylus device, lol. I see using a stylus more of a pitfall. Although if you really want a stylus, you can get a special stylus that would work on capacitive screens. But why would I use a stylus when I can easily use my fingers? Hey, if you have abnormally giant fingers, then I don't think any phone would be comfortable for you. Get the HTC advantage or Athena. Those are bulky phones for us normal sized human beings, but for giants like you, those giant phones will fit comfortably on your hands =)
You find features of the iphone limiting and suffocating? Why? What functions do you use on your phone? And you are wrong in saying that you cannot arrange the icons on the home screen because you can. You can even separate applications by pages if you like.
We do not know your friends, so we wouldn't know the reason why they rarely text. How did you find out? Do you check all of your friends' text usage? As for forwarding SMS and copy paste and other SMS features, didn't you read this article? It's all included in the 3.0 upgrade. Also, you can send to multiple recipients with the current iphone (not multiple senders btw), lol. So yes, you do have control, unless of course you're dumb =)
I think you should just get over your jealousy =)
johndru, 23 Mar 2009nothing new with the features. you can get those and more from Nokia or Samsung. people go... moreYes Nokia and Samsung may already have this feature, but do Nokia and Samsung have the iphone's excellent UI? NO =) Also, this update consists of 100 added features. Do you know all of those 100 features for you to say that Nokia and Samsung already has them? I don't think so.
tarun, 23 Mar 2009An iPhone can only beat iPhone....dont compare it with cheap phones as of Samsung Omnia or 580... moreanyone can get an iphone XD
but sustaning the iphone with the rediculous billing is the problem Xd and all the apps XD that are aso useless causet developers were busy trying to fill apples mistakes with the lack of functions they had from before XD 25,000 apps
15,000 functions and features iphone was missing XD
IPHONE-CURIOUS1, 24 Mar 2009now my g/f and i bought the iphone 3g from att when it cam out. we loved it just like most peo... moreYes you will be able to send low quality pictures via MMS at whatever rate your phone company charges.
I prefer to send multiple full resolution photo's to multiple recipients via email for free as part of my data plan, no 400kb message limit like MMS, no 3MB limit like blackberry, just attach as many as I want and send.
now my g/f and i bought the iphone 3g from att when it cam out. we loved it just like most people did, even though i prefer unlocked nokia gsm phones and she prefers the blckberrys, go figure rite? but when we bought it we kept if for about 2 weeks then we returned it not because it was bad, but we didnt like the function where you just couldnt send multi-media pics and/or movies directly to the other persons cell phone, instead of to the persons email. now does the new iphone os 3.0 give you that option to where we can send pic's to eachothers cellphones w/ out having to send it to an email? if any1 knows the answer to that thanx a million

Most of the people on this board spend their time bickering over foolishness. and worse yet they fight each other with name calling and misinformation. you should take what you read with a grain of salt.
it is really interesting that people are so insanely dedicated to their mobile brands that if this group were armed there would have been a nuclear war already. get a grip people!!!!!
tarun, 23 Mar 2009An iPhone can only beat iPhone....dont compare it with cheap phones as of Samsung Omnia or 580... morenothing new with the features. you can get those and more from Nokia or Samsung.
people got excited with these mediocre features since they didn't find these in iPhone 2.0. but these are just "regular" features to any other brands.
no excitement whatsoever.
