Apple iPhone 3G 5

he Apple iPhone 3G started the design nature that has flowed through nigh on every Apple handset since. As Apple put it, the Apple iPhone was 'inspired by nature – it sees, listens, responds, and enables you to share the greatest moments'. I use the Apple iPhone 3G for my everyday life, and it has yet to disappoint me. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone.

Apple iPhone 3G 3

This was my very first iPhone, and although all the hype and trendy kids were talking about this, I didn't think much of it.

I was amazed at first, since touch screens were fairly new. But the first major thing I noticed was its laggy, choppy interface. As I would swipe in a direction or click on an app, the system took 3-5 seconds to respond. This wasn't always happening, but it was an occasional occurrence, enough to be noticed.

The camera was way to simple. Literally you open the app and it's just a screen showing what the camera sees and a button to snap the picture. No zooming in, no editing, no nothing! I believe that there was an update, but it didn't do much for it.

The speaker quality was low. Somewhat scratchy and low in volume.

I did like, however, it's very simple music software. Just like an iPod. This did come in handy for my music. So music lovers would really appreciate this.

As for call quality, (I had AT&T) the speaker inside the phone was pretty rough. Again somewhat of a scratchy sound with low volume. Now I'm not saying that is bad, just my personal pet peeve since it was a rather expensive phone at the time.

It has a sleek design that makes you forget that you even have it on you!
That had to be my favorite part of this phone.

In conclusion, this phone is best for music lovers. I do recommend some other form of speakers thoguh. For business, look into something else...you don't want this lag!

I like it a lot and it's very useful, but it only works about 85% of the time. I can make calls and play music just fine, but all the other features that utilize cool things like 3G and GPS are either sometimes slow and unreliable or just don't work when you need them the most. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend it.

I love my iPhone 3G, best GPS I've ever had! Sadly, I've had better phones and I've had better camera phones. BUT, I've never had internet browsing the way Apple does it, Flash support is badly needed and regular browsing still crashes from time to time even after all of the updates.

About the camera, i wish there was another way of activating it externally, like a button rather than on-screen. I've often found myself wanting to take a quick picture on the spot only to fiddle with the un-locking, entering my password, finding the camera icon, waiting for it to warm up or whatever it is it does... finally it's ready to take a picture, but by then the moment has passed.... =(

Please bring back the Ist generation!!! You can hardly hear this phone ring if it's in your pocket and not on vibrate. Also hard to hear the earphone speaker, so must use the speaker phone option to hear clearly. AT&T offers a total lack of coverage, many dropped callsI AIso live in Aurora, Colorado, a very large suburb of Denver, and am rarely able to get a live call in my home. I'll have to get a reliable additional phone as a backup. Love the other features though, you can do everything on the Iphone but talk!

I've owned my 16GB iPhone 3G for about 10 months now and I'm very happy with it. There are lots of cool apps available and many of them are free or very low cost. I was reluctant to give up my old Blackberry for the iPhone but I've found so far that it manages my contacts and calendar just as well as the Blackberry did. The internet browser (Safari) is faster and easier to use than Blackberry's. The built-in iPod is a plus.

I have only three complaints, two of which are minor. First, I had quite a bit of trouble setting up my email accounts on the iPhone. On my old Blackberry I was up and running in 10 minutes. I had to reconfigure the iPhone 3-4 times to get the accounts to set up properly. Second is battery life. As long as I keep mine on a charger in the car on the way to the office and plug it into a wall charger every once in a while at home it seems to be working out okay for me. Third, to own an iPhone you have to sign on with AT&T, whose service in my neck of the woods is rather spotty in places. They are adding towers in my area and I expect this will be resolved soon.

I'm eligible to upgrade to a 3GS in a few months and will probably end up with a 32GB model.

Great phone and heaps of fun. The Apps are very cool - so many to choose from (free ones too). The new download of the latest software (even on the older model) is great. Texting is easy and it's great having the Ipod capabilities in the phone as well.

It's much easier to use than I thought it would be! Addicted now!

The only thing is that I wish you could put the alarm on the phone and leave it turned off. As I don't like having it on all night but if you put it on silent it will still work as a great backup alarm in the mornings!

We ordered the iphone from AT&T and it arrived within promised time frame. It took us 4 days to get a live person to pick up the required activation call. Once activated, we found the phone was a defect with all but "phone" feature working - it only works with speaker on. After much *this* and *that* we finally gave in and got a "fixed" "working" phone, thanks for the "merciful" "kind" customer service in AT&T and Apple. Our $300 worth of supposedly brand new iPhone 3G has been valued down and replaced with a "i-do-not-tell-you-it-is-a-refurbish-or-not" replacement with 2 years of jail time. There are obvious service gaps and gray areas between AT&T and Apple, we, the dumb and dumber consumers, are trapped in between and without much help. If Apple really set for making changes in the mobile market in the States, let iPhone be the first to break the carrier barriers. iPhone and its users deserve the freedom of choosing its own worthy carrier or carriers competing in the market.
The iPhone itself, like all other Apple products, is indeed a well designed piece of hardware, but with exaggerated price tag. The incompatible SIM card is an inconvenient feature, even with a good reason. It does not do video, does not come with a compatible pen, and some features are rather useless without adding extra apps.
The phone itself deserves 4.5 stars for its technology advancement and design, however, it is not possible nor sensible to rate it without considering the binding phone service carrier, the twisted relationship between them, and the seemly trapped consumer rights. Therefore, it only gets 3 stars.

This is the best phone in the US market today. It is the first phone that I have enough satisfaction with. I love the touch screen, iTunes and even the sleek look of the phone. I am also a big Apple product fan. I have a minor complaint that sometimes the vibrate only switch switches to sound and vibrate mode unexpectedly while in my pocket, but that is not bad enough for me not to rate this phone with 5 stars, this phone is unbeatable in the competition. I get great 3G reception most of the time as well with AT&T.

HELP! I am suffering from 'cell phone envy' of my Boyfriend's iphone. It can seriously do so much more than my 'Sidekick 3' by T-mobile, and it doesn't take a million years to load web pages. He has some of the coolest innovative applications for a cell phone that I have ever seen. I can't wait for the price to drop so I can afford one as well.

  Wonderful phone. I was worried about the email key board, but apple did a great job with intrepretting what I meantto say, and gets it mostly right. Of course it has a challenge with names (words not in dictionaries).

My complaints

- no pics on SMS. Dont know why. I hadthis on my cheap phones.

- Battery. If you really want to use this., I mean USE it, then my battery doesnt make it through the day. I keepit plugged into a USB port during the day while working, but weekends are a problem.

Other wise great as a phone, surfing and viewing the web is fantastic.

Would reccomend it.

Love pretty much everything.


Still needs:
1. Copy and paste! Duh! What is THAT about? 
2. Global search of the phone's contents - Major Duh! Apple invented Spotlight, why  isn't it on the iPhone, I thought it was part of the OS
3. Easy to replace battery, so mid-day I can swap out for a fresh one and recharge both overnight.

Otherwise the best product in it's class.
