Not had any problem browsing the net on the bberry. as for the 8gb, i have a 2gb card in mine, and thats more then enough for what i use it for.

Try viewing the BBS on a blackberry - horrid. I actually enjoy the bbs on a mobile device for the first time ever - stretching the screen is so cool.

Sorry for all the questions Dave, but is yours on O2 or have you jailbroken it to work on another network?

Dave 16-01-2008 11:15 PM

I'm on 02 - I won't be jailbreaking mine

The keyboard takes getting used to, but is neat once you've used it for a bit. The only problem with it is not being able to type whilst not looking at the phone. On normal mobiles, you can feel your way around the buttons and just glance down every so often to make sure what you are typing looks ok, you can't do that on the iphone.

I give you that, but then pretty much all websites not designed to be viewed on a mobile look crap.

Dave 16-01-2008 11:29 PM

Not on an Iphone, which is my point

swanleyeagle86 16-01-2008 11:38 PM

So in total you will have paid roughly a grand+, to browse the internet nicely?

I had a go on my mates Ipod touch thingy, connected to my wireless network and I browsed the net, it was also the first time that a mobile device actually allowed me to browse with ease and that I would want to use again.

Shame the rest of it was so shit.


:(

I'm loving the email client and can do two finger typing - its a smashing piece of kit

UEAgle 17-01-2008 12:17 PM

When can we expect the next gen iPhone? I think I may hold out for that...

Dave 17-01-2008 12:27 PM

What sepcidically do you want in the next gen? More disk space? 3G? GPS?

I just want them to keep developing the software - so much potential there.

I even like the youtube application

I installed the new update - 1.1.3 - this morning. It has destroyed my iPhone. It will not upgrade, and wants me to restore it to factory settings, which it then won't let me do. Am trawling through maccy forums to see how to fix it. This is a new unhacked iPhone and I am disgruntled. Lots of people are having this problem, it seems.

First problem I've had with it though and until now have been loving it. The minority report pinchy stretchy thing is both aces and cool.

Dave 17-01-2008 12:57 PM

:(

1.1.3 works fine for me

It's afflicting a minority of people, and causes seem to be anything from a glitch in iPhoto to using an old iPod lead.

Various solutions include total reinstalls of iTunes, restoring the phone on another computer, and basically a whole lot of hassle.

Not good.

Are you enjoying the map enhancements?

Dave 17-01-2008 01:36 PM

I don't use the maps - I have a phone with real GPS too :)

anoneagle 09-02-2008 08:57 PM

lookin to get one of these in a months time but could do with some advice....
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?

Dave 10-02-2008 04:28 PM

Batter life is pretty good although I charge most nights

No clue about the other questions

anoneagle 10-02-2008 05:34 PM

cheers dave,although i think i'll just go for an o2 contract now.
been reading a bit about the unlocked ones and i think they pick up faults after updates etc.
only thing that worries me about o2 is the tariff and signal strength.
