The tariff has just been doubled.

Signal strength is much improved these days.

FWIW I haven't even considered unlocking my phone

does an unlocked iphones features still work as a legit one would?(youtube,maps,itunes updates etc.)

will a new updated version of the iphone be released within 18 months? (encase i sign to O2)

and what sort of battery life do you get out of yours?
If you unlock it you get the current features but you need a new hacked version after every update. So you are ever reliant on hacks, and those hacks might in future not have exactly the same apps.

They are opening it up to third party developers so they can design more applications, and Apple will then approve some of them.

Battery life is fine but if you are online a lot it drains much faster.

They just announced a 16 gig version.

The nice thing is that when they put out an update, you get any new features it has. So your phone will keep improving.

As Dave says, they just made the contract twice as generous, and you have unlimited data online so don;t have to worry.

Thanks for your help dave and micky.
I think i'll play it safe (and simple) by choosing the o2 option.
looks like an excellent phone,and i need to get a new ipod with more memory anyway. only using a 2gb ipod,so having to delete files everytime i download music. perfect combo for what i'm after at the moment! Hopefully i wont be disappointed.....

It isn't a rumour about moving to 3G the AT&T chief said Apple were working on it, and infact I think Apple have even been quoted as saying they didn't include 3G first time round due to the size of the chip and its power requirements.

3G wouldn't incentivise me to upgrade if was to cost and it certainly wouldn't stop me buying an Iphone now.

GPRS is fast enough for email and web browsing so unless they are going to offer IM or streaming then I can't leave it.

edit: In fact IM wouldn't need 3G

Just got the 16gb version and managed to unlock it in about 5 mins using some free software.

Very impressed!

Mine connected with our home system straight away. So simple that it took a while for me to realise that it wasn't connected to the web under its own steam.

I hear the latest upgrade to the iPhone will allow the keyboard to be horizontal as well as vertical, which should make typing easier.

Also they will be more business orientated, i.e. you can use Word and Excel.

Disclaimer.... I don't have one, was just talking with a guy at work yesterday about his. I have to say I was impressed with what he was showing me.... but then again I'm a bit of a Luddite when it comes to this stuff.... my cell phone is 6 years old and doesn't even have a camera in it.

The June revision rumours seem pretty strong.

Do people here think that we'll be seeing an update then?

16GB nearly convinced me but I might as well wait until June.
