The battery I've got is around the same size as a spare Nokia battery.
It charges via mini USB so I can charge my iPhone with my wife's Motorola charger, my Navman charger or a PC.
Here in Australia 12 year old girls want prepaid Netsliders or Hiptops, it wouldn't be a very wise move to put a child on a plan.
[deleted post]Actually that's true, i have two girl cousins in Boston who have the iPhone 3G , one is 12 years old and the other one is 11 years old. And they both nagged their way to an iPhone each from my aunt. As a man and over 20 i could never have the same cellphone as them little kids, it would be embarassing actually. If you are a man and still want the iPhone i would go for the iPhone 2G cause it's a better built with the metal and doesn't look as happy go lucky japanese teenage girle chewing gum plasticky like the 3G. It's just emberassing to see grown ass guys walk around with that girls gadget.

No taking the back off and juggling bits and pieces, I don't have to turn the phone off, I can do it in the middle of a call.
Your excuse is pointless and pathetic.
iPhone 3g pissed all over the N96 in numbers sold. And the new iPhone will piss all over the N97 when they come out. Nokia can't make a decent smartphone. They should stick to their 6300 6220 and 6600 bc thats what theyre good at.

[deleted post]Too bad Samsung and LG will have phones with better features released before the hyped up non-97 even makes it to market, I guess that's the penalty for announcing a phone in December and launching it in June.
We'll just have to see if the early releases are plagued by the usual problems which all Nokias seem to suffer including the non-96.

Because the only people who bought them were poor old people with sh***y old phones, you just explain it's better to buy a new phone, most of the time they do.
You can buy spare batteries for the iPhone they plug into the dock adapter and charge it, there are many types availabe, some wrap round like a case a five second search of EBay will prove this right.
You can also walk into any electronics retailer and dock your phone in any of the things on display with a dock, just plug it in and it's charging while you check which ones have the best sound.
The iPhone design let's you pull the drawer out and swap the sim while the phone stays on, let's see your non-series do that!
Can't wait to get this baby.. multimedia beast!!
Look at how fast the touchscreen is on this, it's because they haven't added multitasking yet, something Apple ignored when they created the GSMiPod, sorry i mean the iCarrot, sorry again, i mean the iPhone
jesus dont you think that this arguement is getting a bit pathetic , i mean for gods sake if your that busy with you life and lovely watch , get on with it and for everyone else stop winding the poor bugger up , yes i know its funny but please !
bottom line you like the n series and there are a few others that like the iphone,
saucer of milk for table 2 ...... meeeooowwww :)

A mobile is essentially a piece of clothing. It's on you at al times and on show. People can see it. I will never buy a nokia or an LG simply because they make aesthetically unpleasant phones with horrible interfaces. Call me shallow, but it's image. I just don't buy ugly things.
Apple pay just as much detail to the interface on iPhone as they do on the build. Love it or hate it, Apple is in the phone business and it will have the same impact and cusomer base as they do in the computer business. Their customer base is the technology concious, fashion concious and people who want their device to do what it does properly.
Of course most people dont change batts, but in real world, been a Broker and having 3 Restaurants i use my phone a lot its my on the go office and for me and a lot of people, running out of batt could cost u a lot! i dont give a #%^$ if the back its not that beautiful on a phone!! do what i did, Buy a N96 and if you whant a nice back get a girlfriend like mine!!!
ps i hope u dont have to deal with Apple cause ur beautiful phone got a bad battery, and u need replacement then u will know what im telling u!!

I play with Nokias, SEs, Samsungs, LGs and HTCs every day. 99% of the time, you remove the battery to access the sim card, apart from that, theres no need to remove the battery.
If iPhone had a removable battery, the back of the phone would not be as beautiful as it is.
I used to buy some batt in case i ran out of charge, i just put the fresh one and leave the other one charging, and every one knows that Batt suffer from memory and they become weak and then stop working, on any cell its just an small fix, go to the shop in the corner or ebay and buy a new one, on an Iphone its the worst nightmare!!!! u have to send it back to the shop and then wait and then pay ! thats what happen with Iphone owners, they think they are cellphones pros because someone tell them that the iphone its the best phone and they think its true, because u never ever looked at other smart phones before cause people like U dont spend 500 to 800 $ on a thing unless its cool or in vogue!
I been a Smartphone consumer since the nokia 6600 got almost every one of the N series N91,N95, N95 8gb,N96 but im not married to any brand its only that i buy the best available!! i bouth one of the first iphones and then compare it to my Nokias and U know what happens after a week!! my girlfriend got an Iphone for present!! i could not stand at that crap anymore and took back my N95! the camera on the Iphone its fron the mezozoic, No video! i cant change its batery and the list go on and on!! The iphone its like that Anorexic Blonde model that u die to Screw, but when U do u noticed that it lacks of brain an do not know how to solve a simple problem! The N series its like the Girl next door, beautiful,honest, simple, and with a Phd!!!
