      I think the £900 oner 18 months is only for 200 mins and 200txts, admittedly I think the internet stuff is free but is a lot of money, only 2G as well (could be wrong) but is there any video calls? As I said up top I'm waiting for the Sony W960i (is that the phone you are talking about JD?)

      Great. So the new iPhone 3G comes out on Friday and I get an email last night telling me I can pre-order.

      Apparently 02 had sold out of their online allocation within about an hour.

      Here we go again then - eBay central.

      They could of at least improved the camera from 2MP to 5MP at least? 

      Do I smell a later upgrade before the end of the year?

      To be honest I think the addition of GPS and 3G couple with a price cut of around 50% is more than decent.  The lack of 3G was what held this phone back, not the camera.

      Anyway, it looks like I will have to head off to an 02 shop on Friday.  Which I can't. Cos I'm working.

      Well.  I didn't get it.

      But here's an interesting fact.

      A year ago Apple had never ever sold a mobile phone.

      I'm hacked off!

      My phone's decent but I'm paying the same (if not more with Bolt Ons) on O2 as I would if I'd have waited 3 or 4 weeks and got an i-phone 3G!

       >:( Bit gutted but that's life! Gotta be my next phone now! ;)

      Nah I wont be getting one. My Nokia N95 already does everything and more and it does it all better too.

      Best camera on a phone. Better than most actual cameras.

      I'm planning of getting shut of my C902 and getting an iPhone on pay as you go and just lashing in me contract SIM in a couple of months.

      This is a good phone but I think I deserve an iPhone! :D

      How much are they on pay as you go? Can you use any SIM cards in them? Got a virgin SIM and don't want to buy one only to find out it does work with my SIM :D

      A bit pissed off.

      Not only has 02 been pissing me off lately due to their 'rip off call rates' their staff are bollocks as well.

      I walk in to the 02 shop in Birkenhead the other day to catch up on the forum and this fat slap head that works in there, starts giving me down the banks that the iPhone models on display are for demonstration purposes only and not for 'personal use' as he sarcastically put it.

      Now if he would of got a better response from me if he would of said, sorry to be a pain mate but you can't really use it for personal use.

      Told him to shove it in the end.  P**ck.

      Not sure of prices as of yet! Should be reasonably extortionate of course!

      They cost £140 to make apparently. So flogging them for minimum £300 is generous business! :D

      With regards to SIM's, I'm sure they'll still be O2 only. Me mates got one on Orange though, though he's pretty hush about how that happened! :D eBay more than likely :D

      O2 staff on the whole are pretty sh*te this week. They rang me this morning because my direct debit didn't go through so I asked if I could have 'til the 21st, then move the DD due to my payday being different now. The fella went to get his manager because he was probably new (left me listening to the Torres song, 02 style! :D) and then couldn't get me off hold adequately, thus cutting me off! F***ing tool! :D

      And they didn't ring me back! :D

      Some stock of these iPhones are knocking about.

      They had them in Speke today.

      I've just got lashed by 02 for a £75 monthly bill.  My contract's £35 and I'm sure I didn't use my phone abroad that much.

      Cnuts.

      Yep some of the apps.  But without an external speaker some of the apps don't work properly.  Carling one works fine.  Annoyed everyone with that already. 

      I want somebody to try drinking from it when the coppers come past you on the road.

      It's more to do with me contract only being recent. I complained of the phone being poor, but they said they'd just swap the handset.

      So I'll keep me phone, which admittedly isn't that bad. I've got a 4Gb card on that so it'll do for games, vids and music I'll have for ringtones.

      A 32Gb iPod one should suffice I think! ::)

      I'm guessing that's the fart and burp ones. That makes me sad but I'm sure a few iPod Carlings will sort that one out! :D

      I've had a mooch at the Google phone and the new Nokia, but I think I'm going to have to go out and get the iPhone now my contracts up.

      If anyone can hang on 3 or 4 months then the Nokia N97 looks boss.  But I can't wait that long. 

      Anybody want to buy my 8Gb iPod Touch off me?

      Made up with with my new gadget.

      But - camera is sh*t (which I knew) - no flash or zoom and only 2MP.
      - can't record video (yet)
      - can't send picture messages - although with the data being free and on 3G then just as easy to email - still not a good point

      But apart from that, and the fact that sh*t hot video cameras are tiny and cheap anyway, its a great phone and a software update is on its way.  Athough there are rumours of a price cut in the next 6 weeks.

      T-Mobile are bringing out the G2 (updated Google phone) and again like I said the Nokia N97 looks smart.  But this is on an 18 month contract so no new phones for me, unless I get bored and convince the missus she wants this one. ;)

      The new iphone?
      That should be out shortly after they unvail it at that WWDC thingy.
      I remember last year they unvailed the iphone 3G at that WDDC and it was available in shops about a week later i think, two weeks at most.
      It better come out soon because i lost my iphone 3G ( No insurance >:( ) so i have to wait until the release of the next one because they always have some sort of free upgrade deal for existing o2 iphone customers. Either free upgrade or terminate your current contract and take out a new 18 month one for free and pay the price of the new phone which should be no more than £99. ( I even heard it will be $99 which may be less than £99 in UK)

      Fingers crossed for me cause until then I'm stuck with the Nokia 32 Brick :(

      I use to have the iPhone and traded it in after only 4 days.

      Sh*t camera
      No Video
      Cant bluetooth pics/media
      Cant have a song as your ringtone.

      I think when they sort these issues out - if they can with copyright, the iPhone will be amazing
