I phoned o2 and asked if there was a chance of me getting an Iphone before my contract ended with them at the end of October... They said no... :sob:

OK, I returned my touch diamond and got an iPhone.

The iPhone is nice, pushes email from the exchange server I am connected to. It won't sync contacts though for some reason.

iTunes is such a pile of crap though. I activated it from my PC in work but it now won't sync properly with my PC at home. I downloaded some free apps to stick on it but they won't transfer as the iPhone is not authorised.

I can't figure out how to actually transfer a selection of songs onto the device without screwing up the relationship between my iPod Classic and iTunes.

Is there any way to get music onto this without using the pile of crap that is iTunes?

ok bit miffed here, O2 are telling me I haven't activated my phone and that everything has been charged at my old tariff rate. However I fail to see how I can't of done this as I plugged it in and followed instructions on the day of release and have plugged it in every few days since so surely they will of noticed it being activated as it is a fully functional phone!

Don't know what you are doing wrong, I sync four ipods to mine and an iPhone no problem. I use playlists to transfer exactly what I want. Just plug the device in, manually manage the music and select the playlists you want to transfer. I have all the devices setup as different playlists.

You should be able to do contacts over the air, just select them on the iPhone.

Have you authorised your home computer to access your itunes account? On the Mac just click on Store then authorise computer. Compared to WMP, iTunes is ace. Amarok is better but iTunes is not bad at all.

Seemingly the O2 store managed to get my phone number wrong twice in 2 different ways, a lovely Scottish lady is sorting me out now :)

The google app is great, find anything near you using maps as an integrated app. Just type pizza near me and it highlights all the local pizza houses, click on one and it gives you the phone number, address and website, this is what the phone is all about.

I have my google calendar syncing to exchange which pushes to my phone. I have all my calendars syncing over the air to Iphone, what an age we live in.

If podcasts could sync over the air I'd never plug my phone into my computer again.

Hmmmm, just found out that Yahoo mail does push to the iPhone, I assume gmail will support this at some point too but its annoying it doesn't yet. Thinking about setting a yahoo account up and auto-forwarding my mail to that for now.

Dave I see there a couple of MythTV remote control apps available now in the free apps. If they work as well as Remote then they'll be worth a download for the mini.

A friend has just come back from New York with 6 3G iPhones, he plans on making enough from them to pay back this year's student loan!

cheeky

If I want to transfer music over without adding songs to playlists can I do this? It would be nice if I could just drag and drop music onto the iPod. (Or at least tag albums to copy over) My iPod classis is the 160GB version so I just sync everything with it.

As regards the contacts I have selected them to sync over the air - I even spoke to Apple support who said they didn't know why it wasn't working. Unfortunatly the support people I spoke to didn't seem too tech savvy. Anyone know how I can sync the contacts via iTunes without screwing up the exchange syncing?

The iTunes issue is a pain in the arse. I have iTunes setup at home with my personal email address. I set it up in the office with my work email address. How do I get it to use my personal itunes account?
