      iPhone - Are you getting one?
      Nov 05, 2007 09:33:00 am




      Well looks like it's out.  iPhone

      Anyone thinking of investing in one?

      TBH they look good, but I think it's a waste of time.  Oh and you remember the 'batteries that would last for ever' on the iPod.  They only seemed to work for a year then completely stop working.

      For tariffs - Tariff

      What next Apple?  An iCar?  :D

      Aaaah, but seriously....

      they sold like "Life jackets on the Titanic" over in the States, but am not too sure just what the opinion
      of them is now that the hype has died down...

      Heard there was a software upgrade in the US and all those who had unlocked the phone from AT&T or tinkered with the software were left with a "Brick", and the guarantee was null and void as they had broken the contract. I myself am waiting for Sony W960i, 8Gb internal memory 3.2mp camera, touch screen.

      How much are they to purchase Court? Over two hundred quid and then the minimum monthly tariff of thirty five quid? Seems a tad bit steep.
      Watched a review about them on the gadget show (geek alert) and the only thing that didn't get a good say, was the camera on it?

      I haven't looked too much into it but as far as I'm aware it's only on pay monthly! 

      You big geek!  ;)  Someones got to watch those programmes on tele, though!  This device is going to remind me so much of the PS3, high prices, the rave about it will probably last only a week, and you pay a steep price for it.

      I'll just have a normal phone and my regular iPod thankyou very much!   ;D

      I'm not getting one - I've got the iPod Touch which is exactly the same thing but without the telephone calling thing and the 3G.

      It is indeed - fair usage applies.  And I've heard 02 3G isn't the best.

      I think they've dropped the fair usage thing for the iphone and have heard it doesn't use 3g but the slower EDGE internet thingy

      Looks pretty nifty but I'd rather have a free decent phone on a price plan I can afford (which I have now) and an i-pod touch or even a 80Gb Video (which I'm seriously thinking of, now the Touch is out! The prices should drop, hopefully)  8)

      The iPod Touch are great.  If you read the forum you can probably tell I'm a bit of a gadget geek and this is by far my number one at the mo.

      The iPhone, is just a bit to expensive.  If it had 3G I would snap it up.  The fact it doesn't rules it out for me.

      I'm actually starting to tempt myself.  It's hard to resist.

      The only thing about it that puts me off is that it can't record videos.  And why you can't is beyond me!

      I stopped believing Wikipedia when we all started messing about with it.

      Seriously?

      I can't believe you can't send a picture to another phone from the iPhone.  How sh*t would that be!

      i can't see you wouldn't be able to send mms, not supporting 3g and having no video camera is one thing but not having mms would be stupid

      Yeah the forum looks okay on it doesn't it.  Obv, only know from the iPod Touch but same kind of thing.

      £900 over 18 months minimum is a shed load of money mind...

      When the handset is free I will consider getting one but I'm not tying myself in to a long contract and shelling out nearly 300 notes.

      They'll be free in a couple of months, especially when Sony launch their touch-screen 3G phone

      Now that you bring it into proportion with the price being soo high.

      But it is a smart piece of equipment bear in mind.  The hype will eventually be over soon.

      Oh and yeah the forum does look good on it! I like the little trick where you grab it on the sides and the screen turns with you.  The forum looks even better from that.

      Didn't try and see if my moderation 'powers' work over the iPhone because I forgot!   :D

      I nearly left myself logged into that iPhone as well.  Had to race back to the shop and get back to the same model and log out!

      There is pen on my hand BTW!  :D
