    Default iPhone

    Hi, I am considering to get the iphone 3G

    I want it for the big screen, threaded sms and Wifi.

    Can current owners of the phone give some comments?

    Whats the pros and cons?

    I know it can't forward smses, and no copy and paste function unless have it modded.


    Thanks

    with the os 3.0 coming out , it will have copy and paste . you have listed most of the pros .cons is that the 'home' button will be unresponsive overtime, drop calls , no signals...but the good thing is that you can 1 to 1 exchange .

    Another important 1 is
    Poor battery life - 1 day to 2 day at most
    Next is battery cannot be changed by yourself. Need to send for servicing and battery is around $180 incl service charge.

    Apple is the "new kid on the block" in terms of smartphone technology. Symbian, Palm and even windows Mobile have been in the game far longer. There are about 200+ non-apple smartphones out there.

    Guess what...I was at the Hello shop just now intending to buy the iPhone...after some enquiry, I changed my mind....cos at the back of my mind, i was thinking "no bluetooth, no bluetooth".

    I think i can't have a phone w/o bluetooth function ( i dont want to mod it)....so I gave up the iPhone idea....

    iPhone has bluetooth just the normal BT chip for call taking only, not the A2DP type where you can listen to music via bluetooth.

    Till date, only problem with my iPhone is signal strength. Not sure if it is my old 3G card problem or what as I have been using my 3G card since 1999.

    if im not wrong.. i have an app that i downloaded on the app store where i can send and receive files from another iphone over the same network.. and it did for my gf's iphone and mine.. but i dont think can send with other phones.. also, another one while lets you transfer songs and mainly all kinds of files through network from computer to iphone. hope that helps.. my phone is not jailbroken btw..so it can do so much already.. imagine with it JB...

    There are thousands of apps if your phone is JBed.

    I had used 3 windows based phones and 1 linux based phones and have to say none of them can make it, except perhaps the linux one, which was not released in SG anyways. I think the important point to note here is the intergration of the SW and HW. I find almost most Windows based phones have poor intergration with Windows Mobile. The reason why the iphone is much stable is because apple makes it. Simple as that. Microsoft has to cater to so many OEM phone makers, do you think they have all the issues work out. Not to say apple does, but I think the rate is much much lower.

    I had a phone that had to be reset everyday, another drains the battery in half a day. The strength of the iphone can be said that it is supported directly by apple, as well as the authorised apps from the itune store. I also had experiences where the OEM blames Microsoft and I guess Microsoft can also say that about the OEMs, and most OEMs are busy pushing out the many latest models instead of focusing on a single product.

    The iPhone 3G has Bluetooth.
    You may need to get an app to use it to store files though.

    And, there may be a lot of other smartphones out there, but the integration of the OS is done really nicely on the iPhone.
    iPhone 3.0 will finally add mms and other features, so thats a good thing.
