Hi All,

Just got my iphone yesterday. I wonder how many of you out there are like me? I am adjusting to the iphone. What i miss is the 'Tasks', 'Cut and paste features' of Calender, file folder options.

How do you overcome it? Thanks.

One thing missing is while keying sms, the keyboard doesn't have directional arrows, so if you need to edit text, you'll have to point to the exact right place on your sms or delete until you reach the word you want to edit- abit inconvenient. In windows, you can just press up down left right.

I converted from WM to iphone a few years back. But difference is, i knew what i was getting into and i simply love my iphone and mac integrations (and whole lot of other stuffs). So yes, get the gears/gadgets that will fit your needs. Else, either you get used to what it offers or dump it loh.

thanks people. I have been googling for an offline solution but so far, none is offering.

for the cut and paste, yeah, a bit different. previously i was able to just cut and paste my calender posts and drag them ard. Now, i cant...

How are the rest of you guys adapting to it? How are you overcoming it?

simple, by having 2 phones :bsmilie: with 2 different lines .. with 2 different telcos :bsmilie:

ok jokes aside. i got used to the iphone pretty much fast. not using 3gs so no cut and paste function for me, but not big deal. i dont know how to explain.. you'll just find a way yourself and it'll fall into place

yeah, i guess not used to it meaning to be able to cut and paste like Windows Mobile.

I kind of miss the 'file' function where i can write my daily and export them to my C-Drive. Does anyone has a solution to that?

Not true. Just tap and hold on to the location that you want to place your cursor on. A magnifying glass will appear, then drag the cursor to the exact location.

No arrows, save space, and easy to use. Apple is definitely way smarter than Microsoft. :bsmilie:

No solution to it, but there are apps for you to store your files online and access it any time you want. Should be a paid service.

I am also a WM user converted to iPhone, but got used to it due to its ease of use.

iPhone beats WM way down in every espect. The only complain I have for the iPhone is its battery life, but WM phones are not much better, so iPhone is still my choice. :)

if you're a using WM posting such a reply, apple fans will say windows is so dumb/user unfriendly.

if you're using apple product, you'll get reply such as "adapt to it", "i don't see why you need this feature", "there are ways to work around it". it is never apple's fault and always due to user stupidity.

A crude way is to send the Doc/Excel file as attachments to your own email. Push it to your iPhone and read it from there. If you want to edit it, you've got to purchase a separate software like QuickOffice, but it's a very simple editing software only. Not worth it I find.

For doc files, I converted them to Notes, and then sync directly. Can view and edit using iPhones' Notes. :)

There's no way of keeping track, unless you jailbreak it, which I'm not into it.

It's really dodgy IMO. I think the aim of Apple is to get everyone pass the 160 character limit in every message we send, and ultimately we get charged for it. However, in SG, we usually have a lot of free text messages every month, so this should not be an issue.
