Hate to say I told you so!

Dave 11-07-2008 12:28 PM

I'm not bothered - still have my Iphone V1

ian_the_eagle 11-07-2008 12:35 PM

Fair enough...I've been struggling along with a SE P990 for nealy 2 years...this is amazing!

Could you point me in the right direction to get some songs on here?!

Dave 11-07-2008 12:41 PM

On your Iphone?

Install Itunes, drag music over, sync, rock out

ian_the_eagle 11-07-2008 12:59 PM

Doesn't seen to be letting me do it?! I don't know if you have to change the format of the file?

Just go in, got the last one from O2 Kendal at just after 12 :lux: about 5 people came in while I was there asking about it. One guy was still there finding out what it all did. My 3G sim won't be activated for 24-48 hours, but screw it I got the phone :D

ian_the_eagle 11-07-2008 01:16 PM

Fair enough, that's easy enough! Were they able to sort it out for them then?

My sim has been activated, just got a call offering insurance for 99.99 for the full 18 months compared to the 30 a quarter they were trying to flog me this morning!

So if you are going to get i insured, I would wait for a phone call and save 80...just don't get mugged on the way home!

first post from the iPhone. A little of getting used to but nice so far.

ian_the_eagle 11-07-2008 03:47 PM

I think I've cracked it! You have to create a playlist, and sync the playlsit and the phone. I've not found another way of doing it yet but that works!

Dave, i've got no problems with the O2 site. I just logged on to learn that my order is 'being processed'. No change there since Wed. Bit pissed as I could have just strolled down the road and bought one without all the problems trying to do it online.

I happened to walk past the O2 shop again at lunchtime and the windows were plastered with signs which basically said 'We haven't got any more iPhones so piss off and leave us alone' :D

If the iPhone is anything like an iPod, you should just be able to tick the 'Manually manage music' box in the Summary tab section. You'll be able to drag and drop things then.

What do you mean how good? It's using google maps isn't it? So if you like google maps then it should be all good.

As for the strength of signal / ability to get locks - I'm guessing it will be as tricky as other mobiles.

iTunes overloaded. I suppose giving first generation owners an extra day to upgrade firmware would have been too obvious?

Brett 11-07-2008 05:46 PM

o2 has taken the upgrade link down from their webshite.

Ridcully 11-07-2008 07:31 PM

Got a 16Gb today :)

Loads of phones left at Apple store at Lakeside, 8 and 16Gb in both white and black (well there was at 1730).

Oh and absolutely NO queues.

Well I told it find my location it initially seemed off, however once i turned on the satellite view rather than the map view it was bang on top of our house (well the drive anyway)

Ridcully 13-07-2008 04:03 PM

Ok so what apps are worth having?

Free and paid for.

cumbrian_eagles 13-07-2008 04:51 PM

ipint is fun for about 30secs and netnewswire is good for rss feeds and of course the iTunes remote. I haven't tried any paid for ones until any other suckers have paid for them and reviewed them.
