Has anyone got the new iPhone with the new software on it.

Been in the 02 shop lunchtime having a good play again :D its a very neat bit of kit and I only got a month before current contact expires ...

Looked at heaps of other contenders, pro's and cons with all, but bar a higher res camera and slightly lacking on the Bluetooth front it looks like being my upgrade choice !

Anyone who has lived with one, value some honest opinions .... battery life when connected to the net all the time ?

Im still thinking about the Nokia 5800 xpress music, but would be interested to hear any thoughts on the new iPhone

Also, Jimbo, having a "good play" in the o2 shop is not something you should admit to, or even for that matter actually do...

Family forum? I'd have thought better of you to be honest I:

I have had the iphone for about 4/5months now, its the best phone I have ever owned (and I have had a few), battery life could be better but other than that it ace, plus it fits in my idock built into my ash tray, and bluetooth handsfree works great T:

I had the 2.5G and then the 3G (which i swapped for the Google G1) and I have to say the iPhone is the best phone I have ever had (had around 50 different mobiles)

THe only draw back is the lack of physical keyboard can become quite annoying sometimes, but I really regret selling mine and wish I wasnt still in the contract otherwise i would be looking at getting the S version now.
Im still tempted .. if you can put up with the virtual keyboard (which will be far better now with landscape useability) I would say go for it.

Incidently, I'm not a musicy person so never had any music on it, only podcasts and audio books, and loved the interface, again nothing else has come close to it.

With a month left you can upgrade early too... A:

Hey, Mrs ColeseT4 here.

Have you thought about the Nokia N97??? This has a full qwerty keyboard and can access the Nokia Music Store. Nice piece of Kit.

Also a thought would be the Nokia 5800 Comes with Music edition - which means that you can download Free music from Nokia Music store for 12 months. Once the 12months is over you can keep the music you have downloaded.

By the way I am a bit biased as I work for Nokia Music H:H:

I love my iphone 3G
The only problem I have is im forever sneakily checking my email, facebook, ebay etc.. at work cos you can access them in seconds and you get unlimited internet access as part of the contract. :D Loads of really good apps and touchscreen is a real pleasure to use.
I got mine after realising how nice macbooks are to use. Goodbye PC's and other mobile phones, it's apple all the way for me! :D:D

Had my iphone for about 5 months now, and don't think I would use anything else now.
Signals is always good, internet is easy & fast. Ok, it took me a little while to get used to it, but now i just can't seem to fault it!

Great info here guys A:

I could get the HTC High Def for a very good deal currently if I renew with Orange, but still tempted to 02 for the iPhone, the web surfing is the biggest attraction now, its probably going to be a bad idea having the Forum to hand 24/7 :eek:

I have read up on the N97 which also looks ok, but having lived with the N95 for nearly 18months now, looking for something a lot slimmer this time.

If you want Microsoft comparability, then there is better. If you want anything else, the iphone is better! It's that simple.

I read this and wrote this on my iPhone lying in bed!

I took a pic and added it to an email I was in correspondence with the council. Superb!

I' m planning wedding stuff, by the minute: as when the email beeps, I can reply immediately!

Applications, applications, app..... You get the message. There are apps for stuff you've never heard of, full strength games, great utilities......Consistently updated and down loaded for free.

... As said above, does what it promises. On paper there looks to be many pretenders; sorry - contenders, but your £££££'s have only one deserved home.

Pulling the forum up in 15 sec; checking street view from your pocket; 3g that can beat my 19/20 gig brodband; answering all of those 'pub' qu's that appear throughout your day...Straight away!

Ability, usability, credibility, with the only down side being- you'll start using 'ipone' as a verb
