No - but I had problems. Several of my paid-for applications stopped working for some reason and the IPhone kept crashing, so I have reinstated it for the time being.

One big triumph over the weekend however was successfully unlocking my T-Mobile USB 'Web and Walk' modem, using instructions found on the Web. The Sim Card from my IPhone 3g works fine with it, so I can use my new account with my Laptop and get the full 3g benefit.

Good news on the modem.

Bad news on the iphone, and it all sounds so simple according to the lifehacker instructions.

It's pretty easy

Viewty Airshare..... and 16gig microsd card and upwards capacity.

Hows your camera guys ?

Do you think the Iphone will actually catch up to the Viewty eventually ?

Just stirring, however the Iphone isnt the great leap forward that people seem to think.

Just in case anyone reading doesn't want to waste their money in a lemming like frenzy.... Heres some more Viewty Apps... pity about the gps but they are working on it.

Oh and there are 64 gig Micro sd Cards on the Horizon, so you will be able to use this phone for a long long while.

Dave 29-09-2008 08:29 AM

I think it's good that there are lower end phones for people to cheap to get an Iphone.

ozzieEagle 29-09-2008 08:45 AM

I reckon the advertising Guru's have done a fantastic job with the Apple brand. It's amazing the kind of people they have sucked in.

No wonder people working in advertising get paid so well, they obviously push the right buttons.

The only thing lesser about the Viewty is the advertising revenue.

Now lets move on to Android eh ;)

Nonsense.

You don't buy a car because it has the largest engine,

The Iphone kicks the viewtys ass on a number of levels, including, but not limited to

* Styling
* Operating system
* Browsing experience
* Ipod experience
* Synchronisation
* App store

I thought this was the thread for iPhone users?

I always think there is something a bit desperate about people coming into forums/threads for Apple devices just to slag off an Apple device.

If the other devices are that good, then why such insecurity about the choice, which manifests itself in having to go look for Apple users to argue with?

I am simply offering an alternative, albeit in a theatre which doesnt want to believe.

Just evened up the playing field slightly, with some choices that most people didnt know about, specifically the myth that the Viewty only has 2gigs of memory.

LOL, I've a mobile account with two phones in my name, neither are mine. I worked out that for me, Mobiles equate to keeping me on a leash.

I do like tinkering with the phones in this household though :p

Islamic fundamentalists use that line, as well.

I've used the Viewty a fair amount in the past. It has nothing on the iPhone in any sense other than the camera.

glaziers fan 29-09-2008 06:58 PM

how do i transfer contacts from iphone to another phone?

ie are they on the sim card automatically?

Dave 29-09-2008 07:00 PM

No, they are stored on the phone. When you backup your phone you can transfer to another phone.

The Mac also has the 'contacts' app, I can't speak for windowze
