Good: good phone large screen display & touchable
Bad: not all in the i phone need to be developed more to get to NOKIA stage
Comment: such a good phone but not everything in it as we expected to get
Good: It is a simple Phone + MP3 Player
Bad: Other Basic functions are not available
Comment: The following normal futures are not available in Iphone.
1. Can not forward a text message.
2. Can’t send a text message to more than one contact, you will have to retype the message again and again.
3. Iphone is not fully compatible to Microsoft outlook( Iphone have problem with the SSL certificate)
4. Bluetooth have problem with A2DP functions.
Iphone can resolve all these problems by upgrading their software, but nobody knows when the next upgrade is! It is not worth for the money and the 02 contract.
I will look at different options before going for it.
Good: Internet and Organiser
Bad: Phone was a disaster
Comment: This is an over-rated product. The Hype and the price are outrageous. The phone is unusable in parts of Europe and I have found it poor in places in the UK. I have resorted to a new SIM in my old phone! I will be selling it on ebay shortly
Good: Touch Screen, Wi-fi, Built In Ipod, 3.5mm Headphone Jack
Bad: Basic Camera, B'Tooth Is Stereo Only, Locked Onto Pricey Contract
Comment: When i first heard about this phone my mind was set that i was going to buy it but now i have not im really glad. Many of my friends have it and have all confessed its one big hype. It has a dismal 2 megapixel camera without auto focus and no video capabilities. Yes its nice but you might as well buy something thats actually worth its money.
Good: Best OS on any phone ever !!
Bad: Pricey , N95's
Comment: This one of the most satisfying gadgets i have ever owned , i don't think a review can really do it justice ,what this phone does it does so well so effortlessly ,no manual needed just brilliant syncing with OSX , the touch screen interface is astonishing its straight from area 51, in fact the whole phone fells like an evolutionary step for handheld devices. Awesomeness abounds , phonelust now is a very real phenomena. Im off to burn my N95 in a ceromonial ritual , hammer house of horror style!
Good: Internet everywhere, except the Underground
Bad: You won't get it unlocked after your initial 18 months contract ! ! !
Comment: I have an iPhone but I will return it tomorrow, because I received after 7 workdays an Answer from O2 regarding my Question, if I can get it unlocked after the initial 18 month Contract, so that I can use it in Germany, where I am originally from.
I think it is an affront against everything I have experienced as Mobile Phone Customer in the past 10 years.
Here is the eMail from O2:
Thanks for emailing us to find out if we can unlock your iPhone.
You can continue your contract after completing 18 months of contract. We won't be able to unlock the iPhone to use on another mobile network, as it's available to use exclusively on the O2 network. This means you won't be able to use the iPhone in Germany, as we won't be able to take off the SIM lock even if you complete your 18 month contract.
If you can cancel your contract within the 18 month term, you'll need to pay the early cancellation charge. This charge is calculated by taking the remaining number of months (of your contract) multiplied by your monthly service charge (line rental). You'll be able to view this charge on your final bill. We'll request the payment for your final bill by Direct Debit on or 14 days after your bill date.
You can keep visiting our website (LINK) for more information and updates. The website is regularly being updated with all the information that we currently have on the iPhone.
If there's anything else we can do for you, please reply to this email.
You can also visit our online help centre at: (LINK)
Important - When you email us please provide: your date of birth, postcode and mobile number as it helps us answer your query faster.

Good: Stylish and functional - beat expectations
Bad: No MMS, no flash
Comment: Buy one
Good: All of it
Bad: Cant seem to take a number of a text and store it as a contact
Comment: Couldnt wait didnt want to wait for UK and the hassle of changing operators. Bought off ebay unlocked phone works perfectly with Orange sim. Didnt need any of the instructions the phone is so intuitive ...very pleased with it have now dumped Napster as well and gone over to Itunes. Was really impressed over the years with Smatphones and have had a lot of them but they dont come close to this. The Wow really does start with this device. Still not going to apple for a computer leave Microsoft for the work and Apple for all the fun ..well almost..
Good: Everything about it
Bad: Removable Sim, need a car (cigarette lighter) charger
Comment: The 5 page review was not quite accurate:
1) You CAN indeed scroll immediately from beginning to ending, or jump anywhere within a long list of contacts, songs, etc. by simply touching on of the letters of the alphabet along the right side of the lists
2) World Clocks ARE included features
3) Timer and Stop Watch are ALSO included
Responsive and gorgeous GUI, elegant, stunning, user-centric to an exponential level, (magnifying glass appears under finger tip when editing text) multi-tasking is a breeze. This phone is phenomenal - off the charts - and this is only the beginning......
