  1. Was a good run

  2. If you did, this is the saddest thing in, like, the history of ever.worse that the long island hair cut?
  3. @ citing (repeatedly) an blog post who's sole purpose is to attack the product. There is NOTHING factual about is random and completely unfounded assumption. You are seriously moving into the lead as the biggest hack/tool on the boards... well done. I thought LHUCKS was gonna hold that one down forever RKM has added nothing to this thread. Find a neutral site that doesn't scream "I HAVE AN AXE TO GRIND" and start posting links from it, and I might take you seriously. I think I've added a lot and listed links that were pro apple in fact. I wish you would actually read it before making comments though. Heck, do a google search and read up if you don't believe me.
  4. Thanks for the reminder. I decided it was time as well.x3also shot a post to the mods complaining about a troll for the first time in my many years on these forums. I'd suggest others do so as well... it would be nice to have an Apple product thread that wasnt' completely taken over by RKMoney's idiocy. He's been the leading poster in every significant Mac thread lately.... and he's been posting absolute jibberish Lame that the mods have let it get this far.... guy needs to be clipped.Icon, nowhere did I make up stuff, in fact the link i sent was pro apple. If I am going to get clipped only because I listed the flaws or potential flaws of a product then clip me.Go back and please read the link this time and read the end, again, he said he will still buy the phone.
  5. Cingular doens't provide support for their phones anymore? Other providers won't provide support for their phones when they start carrying this phone this summer? Tool. Apple owns it not Cingular and from what I've read you will have to deal with Apple, not Cingular regarding issues with the phone.I'm not saying it's certainly not the case but I'd like to see a link as it would be a first if cingular was not supporting a phone that htey carried. I'd prefer that link to something other than heresay from a blog as well...TIA here's another link, again, you may want to contact Apple or Cingular to get a definitive anwer since this isn't a current article but it brings up the points I've made. You can't assume that Iphone will be handled differently than the IPOD but not 100% sure.http://networks.silicon.com/mobile/0,39024...39163768,00.htm Upwardly Mobile: Why I won't buy an iPhone Get those wild horses ready - it's not going to happen By Jo Best Published: Friday 10 November 2006 Apple may think all iPod users are dying to buy an iPhone - but not Jo Best. Here she explains what she really, really wants from a mobile - and why she doesn't think the Mac maker can deliver it. Like anyone with a thing for gadgets and gossip, I've been following the various twists and turns in the rumoured Apple iPhone saga with excitement. A mobile phone from the makers of the sexy iPod? How could I not? Patents this, domain registrations that - I've read it all. But there's no way on earth I'll be raiding my piggybank for one when it eventually comes out - and it will come out, despite the lack of confirmation from Cupertino. Before any of the Apple loyal start hitting their 'flame reporter' key, I'll tell you why. Just think about what Apple does really well and what it does really, really badly. Like a lot of people, I own an iPod - and it's a pretty foxy beast - but like a lot of people, my iPod has been back to the shop more times than I care to think about. Hardware durability isn't the strong point of Apple's music devices and I worry the same could be true of the iPhone. I can live without my iPod for a few days while it gets fixed - I can't do the same with my phone. And what of battery life? My iPod needs charging every day to play music for an hour or two. Heaven forbid the same would happen to my mobile. My iPod - admittedly a couple years old - needs more care and attention to get it through the day than should be necessary. Phones need to just work. Will the iPhone be able to deliver that? Then there's the DRM, or digital rights management for those that aren't up on that acronym. Apple's DRM is, well, awful. I've spent hours of my life convincing iTunes I should be allowed to play songs I either ripped from lawfully bought CDs or purchased from Apple itself on my laptop or my iPod. Now imagine this attitude toward content protection (Is Apple protecting me from myself? I wish it wouldn't) applied to all the other content on my phone. I'd rather not. Rumour has it there will be two variants of the iPhone - a straightforward mobile and a smart phone. That smart phone could store music and videos as well as contact info and Excel, Word and PDF files. I know Apple isn't stupid and probably won't put copy protection on my PIM-type content but I do not trust them in this area and would inspect closely their DRM policy on the iPhone before considering a purchase. Ready to flame me yet? Well, let's take a look at what Apple does really well. Software for one. iTunes is a great advert for Apple's ability to make software and hardware intuitive and easy to use. I'm a big fan of its Spotlight search technology - it's delightfully painless, as tech should be. If a phone could bring me up a text message or contact I was looking for in the same way iTunes helps me find a song, I'd be a happy bunny indeed. The company's great with media management too - I have a sneaking suspicion Motorola, Nokia et al would be wise to learn from OS X's approach to managing video, photos and suchlike. And let's not forget the design - an iPhone is going to be a beautiful thing. Nokia, Samsung, RIM and many other handset makers may do functionality, but looks? Nah. Some of their phones should have bags on their metaphorical heads. I suspect Apple's big idea is to sell the iPhone as a single device for phone and music functionality. But I've got an iPod and a mobile and it hasn't bothered me yet, despite the plethora of phones with built-in music players flooding the market. So still, no iPhone for me. I'd also like to state for the record that if Microsoft created a Phune (a phone and a Zune in one, geddit?), I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole either but that's a different story. So let me tell you what I would like. Nokia, come over here. Apple, you stand next to Nokia. Now shake hands. (Can you see where I'm going with this?) I want a Nokia which runs a mobile version of OS X. I'd really like Nokia to make the iPhone - an N Series for the kids, if you will, an E series for the suits. Nokia's durability and battery life, Apple's intuitive software. It's a marriage made in heaven. And maybe, after the post coital cigarette, RIM could get involved too. Hey, it's just an idea. Okay. Let me know when you post the link that says tha Cingular won't be supporting the iPhone (the one I was asking for). TIA As I've told you twice now, go back and look at my original link. I guess you don't bother to read what I post so here it is http://apcstart.com/4965/top_10_things_to_...bout_the_iphone 3. Built-in battery: It must be the only mobile phone on the market that doesn't have an easily user-replaceable battery. We know from the iPod that batteries age pretty quickly, but who wants to send their phone back to Apple for servicing when it needs a new battery? I don't want to have to go back to my dowdy old Nokia while Apple swaps the battery. That's a major flaw. That's what I've read, is it true? As I also followed up by calling Cingular don't know yet. YWIA @ citing (repeatedly) an blog post who's sole purpose is to attack the product. There is NOTHING factual about is random and completely unfounded assumption. You are seriously moving into the lead as the biggest hack/tool on the boards... well done. I thought LHUCKS was gonna hold that one down forever Calm down. I posted this and backed it up with saying that nobody knows if this is 100% true, nobody does but it brings up a very strong point. You then said I never read it anywhere and to provide you a link to where I read it and I did. THEN you said it's not credible. Whatever. You are acting like the tool here. Don't imply that someone didn't read anything and made it up and ask for a link for proof and when said link is sent then don't rip the source. Take your pills and relax.ETA: And if you bothered to read the link, look at the end, he still TOUTS APPLE! So, again, this wasn't a rip piece just one that shows the flaws, he's an apple supporter: An addendum: Do I want one of these? You bet! Is it one of the most technologically advanced phones on the market? Absolutely. Do we live in a perfect world? Of course not. Do I wish Apple had reconsidered a few aspects of the iPhone to make it even better? Yep.

  7. Not sure if you are aware of this, but it is not due out until June. You've got a few months to figure this out yet.
  8. According to this link, very slowhttp://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=4263 IPHONE neglects the prosumer What's the big deal? The iPhone has non-corporate-grade e-mail functionality and Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) rather than High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) wireless Internet. That's a fancy way to say the iPhone isn't 3G. The first volley of iPhone's push email is a deal with Yahoo mail. But pushing corporate email may be more important since smartphones straddle the corporate/consumer divide. As a result, the iPhone may put off potential corporate customers, opines Steve Lidberg in a Pacific Crest Securities research note.
  9. I called Cingular and they currently do not know 100% what will happen if the Iphone doesn't work, his "best guess" is that if your phone doesn't work and it's under Cingular warranty they they, not Apple, deals with it BUT it could take at minimum two days to get a replacement phone then you send yours back to them.
  10. I'm not saying it's certainly not the case but I'd like to see a link as it would be a first if cingular was not supporting a phone that htey carried. I'd prefer that link to something other than heresay from a blog as well...TIA Well, if you buy an IPOD at Best Buy and the IPOD freezes up and no longer works, will Best Buy fix it? With my old IPOD I had to ship it to Apple (live in NYC and no way can I take off of work during the day and wait hours at the store) and at best I got it back 4 or 5 days later.YOu can't possibly be this dense, can you?Are you seriously comparing a phone sold through cingular to a MP3 player sold through best buy? Come on man... you're not very bright but you aren't usually this lame. You said you READ that cingular doesn't support the iPhone.. please provide a link. I'm sure you wouldn't lie about something like that... Apple makes phones and IPod's, my point is that no matter where you buy Apple products, if they fail, then you need to return it to Apple to get a new one or have it fixed. Am I wrong on that?I did provide the link, go back to my first post in here and he talks about it.

  12. J,If I had to gamble I would currently say no. I base that on the fact that that's an important feature and Jobs would mention the phone could do that. If you read the link I posted in a previous message you will see that unlike Blackberry (and assume Trio) you aren't going to get real time e-mail on the IPhone. I don't know about you but if I am using a device to tract e-mail I want it real time, not "wait every x amount of minutes to see if new e-mail has come in". Push e-mail from Yahoo! down?MS OUTLOOK

If I have a phone with contacts and e-mail usage there's no way I could wait even a full day without it so hopefully Apple has an overnight service plan or cingular will give you a replacement iphone but doesn't sound like it so far.
  14. Cause God knows, Apple welds that SIM card into the iPhone. Making it nigh-impossible to transfer it to a cheap, spare stand-by, while you ship the iPhone back to Apple. Wanna bet AppleCare has an overnight replacement plan when this thing goes live?Dunno. All I know is that when your IPOD doesn't work and you don't live near an Apple store you have to wait about a week to get one back. Perhaps they will have free overnight service with their phones but what happens when BB and Trio users ditch for this phone and the batter or any other major issue comes up? Don't know about you but there's no way I could send it in and expect to wait days to get one back.
