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 04:58 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.

Carrying a usb wire around with you is a sin.

When I say carry I have one in my car and one in my laptop bag, alternatively you could just buy a couple and leave them at different places Daddy Cool

Stavros 69 04-09-2008 11:13 PM

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 09:35 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 09:47 AM

You can't buy the 2G version new

Pay as you go out in the next few weeks - good deal with free web browsing and wi-fi for some while too:

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

I know you aren't the sharpest Tim but what do you think would happen if you got a call when listening to music. Have a stab at an answer.

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

Stavros 69 08-09-2008 04:26 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 04:31 PM

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

Dave 08-09-2008 04:32 PM

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