iPhone 3G

Postby Adam on Sat Jun 21, 2008 6:16 am

This looks like an awesome piece of kit :D It's got 3G, GPS, and a couple of other cool things. It's gonna cost $200 plus monthly fees in America, and possibly free on some contracts in Europe. 22 countries are getting it on July 11th, plus about another 48 around the world at a later date.

Here's a collection of tons of articles about the iPhone 3G if you're keen to know more: http://www.engadget.com/2008/06/09/wwdc ... as-landed/ and also this one's pretty explanatory too: http://www.engadget.com/2008/06/09/ipho ... -official/

I won't be getting one of these as I'm skint, and also have an iPod Touch and a phone, so why do I need a new gadget with both of those things? Plus I HATE contracts with a passion. Are you getting one?

I'm excited its finally getting an Australian release, i'd like to see detailed info on plans though.

My Optus plan ends this month so i can upgrade no hassle, and i'll get rid of my touch to someone.
Cant wait.

Sounds awesome BD, you're a lucky guy :) Yeah I surprised I haven't heard anything about price plans so far! You'd think they'd give away something so people can make up their minds about getting one of not.

When I gave DH his on Saturday, we played with the GPS for about an hour. We can see our house on the google map and we zoomed in and walked around the house and watched the pin track us from one end of the house to the other.

iPhones are wonderful and the G3 has some nice extras. The only thing is while in G3 mode, it sucks the power much faster. We did a test while out to see how fast a webpage loaded G3 vs. edge. The difference was not too noticeable.

WooHoo Finally got my iphone today. Spent ages working out how to get the simcard inserted, probably should have just asked in the shop instead of grabbing the pone and running home.

Does anyone know where I can download ringtones for it? I've tried I-tunes but can't find them, I've tried the apple site and it gives directions how to create ringtones in Itunes, but I can't get that to work so i guess it's not compatible in the Uk yet.

least with the stone you can use it to smash a window and steal an actual phone. This is why i went for an Ipod Touch, all the features of the iphone, no phone bill lol

You don't need MMS on the iPhone. It has email, so just attach a picture to it and email it to another person - It's free too :S Plus with email you can send it to a computer, not just phones.
