On a side note, has SingTel currenly sold out all her units of iPhone? No Stock on the SingTel website!
The iPhone is build for the "no-brainers", phone setting is super easy, unlike other phones you need to go through many clicks just to complete one preferred setting. Some advantages worth to note here.
Web surfing - A real full size web browsing experience just like your home PC, the cons are the lack of Flash video support & 3G video call, but Apple will come to that, just like MMS & Message forwarding.
Now included - MMS, message forwarding, qwerty keyboard layout.
Internet Tethering - Now, this is the best part. I bet some of you guys don't even know or can't figure out how to surf the internet on your laptop with your cell phone connected as a modem. With iPhone you can connect to your laptop quite easily, whether it is Windows laptop or a Macbook.
It is ok to update to OS 3.1, the problem here is phone startup is very slow. I've use iPhone 3G for a year now & haven't had any big issue with it to date.
For those who are new to iPhone, some advice here:
1. Subscribe to a mobile data plan if you do do not want to receive shocking phone bill. iPhone will connect via GPRS even you have turned off 3G connection or if no wi-if hotspot is found. That means if you accidentally click on Safari, Mail or other Apps that require broadband connection, your data charges will begin.
2. Call operator to turn off GPRS connection if you do not wanna to spent extra dollars monthly.
3. Hook up your iPhone via bluetooth or USB cable by using Internet Tethering to a Windows netbook or Macbook laptop if you wanna surf on big screen.
For those who plan to buy a touch screen phone mainly for the ease of use like web surfing, SMS, MMS or to kill time on the slow running mrt trains, the iPhone is worth your consideration.
