Got one just now will have to give it a proper charge before having a play but can't wait. Had the choice between white and black but opted for black as it looks better.

Swanny32 26-08-2008 12:35 PM

Mine has dropped service again but this time im really worried as it hasn't had a service all morning.

Dave 26-08-2008 12:38 PM

airplane mode on then off should fix that

boo, I was tricked by the advert too

Dave 27-08-2008 10:47 AM

Huh - what do you need flash and java for other than Youtube which is available?

PalaceMonkey 27-08-2008 10:50 AM

erm, I don't know.

I just don't like being misled

Dave 27-08-2008 10:53 AM

I think the ruling is harsh especially when there is something a lot more obvious they could and should be pulled up on...

PalaceMonkey 27-08-2008 12:33 PM

it's not that fast either!!


shan't bother with one then

Dave 27-08-2008 12:43 PM

It's not really a you thing anyways.

James 27-08-2008 09:14 PM

I am going to get one when my present contract with T-Mobile expires in October.

Is it easy these days to keep your number when you change providers?

Dave 27-08-2008 09:17 PM

It's simplicity itself. Make sure you order your PAC code in advance...

KingsleY 27-08-2008 10:00 PM

Be warned you'll have a couple of days with a different number.

I swapped from T-mobile also, if you didn't realise already, you need to give them 30 days notice of termination unless you are porting your number in which case the switch off coincides with the port. You have to be on the last day of your contract to get the PAC otherwise you will have to pay them for it.

eh? Just port the number before the t-mobile contract expires.

Ridcully 01-09-2008 01:30 AM

Then you'll have to pay, you will also have a temporary O2 number for four or so days, i just diverted all calls to the iphone temp number to get round this.

Key points for me though were

- t-mob require 30 days notice to end the contract
- if you are in your last month of contract even though you've already paid your line rental in advance, they will charge you for a PAC

GodstoneEagle 02-09-2008 06:34 PM

I recently celebrated my 1 monthiversary with my iPhone, I love it and we are very happy together :)

Have any regulators ever had any power?

Brett 02-09-2008 09:22 PM

None when they're in bed with the people they're meant to be protecting the public against.

Are the EU still investigating Ofcom for colluding with the mobile operators over price-fixing?

Swanny32 03-09-2008 11:27 AM

Anything new worth downloading?

Ridcully 03-09-2008 02:56 PM

iFooty if you haven't got it already and the Movie (top free app) thing are nice.

Ridcully 03-09-2008 02:57 PM

Oh and the 1337pwn xbox thing is free now which is handy for xbox live

GodstoneEagle 03-09-2008 04:38 PM

downloading a few new apps now including the ones rid suggested

Got iFooty and Movies both very handy.

Question for the iPhone users that have upgraded from the 1st generation iPhone to the 3g version?

Has it been worth it?

Dave 04-09-2008 02:18 PM

Probably not

Oddjob 04-09-2008 02:18 PM

Who knew?

Justy C 04-09-2008 02:20 PM

OK - cheers Dave.

Stavros 69 04-09-2008 02:51 PM

Can i have a review of the battery life please, it's one of my main worries.

Ridcully 04-09-2008 03:58 PM

Charged mine Tuesday night to full, its got about 10% left right now which reminds me, I should put it onto charge. Surfed a bit, used it for about 50 mins of calls altogether, compared to my old WM6 phone (Tytn / Vario 2) I'd say the battery life at the moment is better on the iPhone.

What does this mean - and how do I do it? I though I had to wait until the old contract expires before shifting my old number.

Swanny32 04-09-2008 04:14 PM

Battery life is a pain in the arse at first, this is my first iPhone and the novelty factor although wearing off now means that im playing games, checking email, chacking facebook etc etc, I literally have to charge mine every night.

Stavros 69 04-09-2008 05:58 PM

So i'd have to get a lot of chargers in other words ?

Providing you are in your last month you can phone customer services and get your PAC, they will charge you a declining amount depending on how long of your contract you have left. Once you give O2 the code it takes about 5 days to port the number so you will have a temp O2 number until it goes through. You can wait until the end of your contract also and avoid the charge although obviously you will have to pay the proportion of the line rental you use in the next month whilst waiting for it to happen.

I ported with about 2 weeks to go and it was 12.50

Agree its a once a day charge generally which is pretty usual these days for a smart phone.

Before Dave chips in....yes its not technically a smart phone

As for chargers, I got myself a in car USB charger and just carry the USB lead around with me, providing you are near something with a USB connection you can charge. I use the main charger at home, the work computer when I'm in the office and the USB cigarette lighter adapter when I'm in the car. Pretty easy really.

I would have said no at first but now I love this puppy more than my 2G version. (Just so long as I remember to charge the poxy thing at every available opportunity)

The roaming problems I experienced when on the cusp of a 2G and 3G signal appears to have been sorted by the last s/w upgrade and it seems pretty stable now especially with regard to Safari which kept dropping out initially.

The GPS has actually got me out of trouble twice in the last two days so it got a big tick for that.

James 05-09-2008 10:35 AM

I have an issue.

I have bluetooth preparation in my car (a 2007 BMW 5 series) - and apparently the 3g version will not work properly with it. There is a cradle for the 2g version - but the 3g will not fit it since it has a curved back. No new cradle is likely this year.

Should I go for the 'older' model? How much better is the 3g version?

Car use is essential for me, so unless I am prepared to switch my sim card in to my old phone when I travel, it looks like the 3g version may not be any use (at least until Apple/BMW sort out the problem).

Dave 05-09-2008 10:47 AM

You can't buy the 2G version new

arussell 06-09-2008 02:24 AM

Quick question.

If Iím listening to some tunes and my phone rings or get a text message, does it notify you and interrupt your music ??

Also what's the vibrate like ??

Thanks

If my phone was on silent ? I do not know. That's why i asked the question.

Stavros 69 08-09-2008 05:26 PM

I never have a ringtone on my phone, so i want to know what the vibrate is like and what happens if the phone is in my pocket etc.

It's quite important !!

PalaceMonkey 08-09-2008 05:31 PM

I reckon it vibrates, whether the phone is in your pocket or not. :p

Dave 08-09-2008 05:32 PM

Amazingly a phone that costs over 800 quid does have a vibrate function.

Plesae report back. Esp re the vibrate capability. Feel free to be very descriptive.

The cost of the phone is subsidised by the tariff. The otal cost of a mobile phone is normally calculated by using the method of cost of phone + tariff, in my experience at least.

Dave, the cost of the phone is normally the unsubsidised price. The PAYG version of the phone is available for 399 which would indicate a price half of your (rather clumsy) estimate.

You can't calculate an absolute using a variable. For example using your logic the phone is worth £1350 if you are on the £75 personal tariff and that is the same value on either the 8GB or 16GB. The 8GB version is worth £639 if you take it on the £30 tariff.

Your logic is similar to trying to work out the price of a car by factoring in the cost of the petrol.

Oddjob 09-09-2008 01:00 PM

Mellers, I am not sure this is an argument worth winning.

Only if the petrol subsidised the price of the car.

Anyways, my apologies for not getting the price exact enough for you.

Just to let you know......jailbreaking is not unlocking.
Jailbreaking is breaking to iPhones security and code to make changes, and install a applications that apple either don't support, or don't approve of..

It stems from the Linux/unix world where a user breaks out of a chrooted or restricted environment. It's a bout 30 years old.
