    Default Bye 1.1.2

    I just woke up! I restored my 1.1.2 firmware to the original state, and boxed everything up. Tomorrow it goes back to the apple store.
    This is my 2nd iphone after trying it some time ago.. but I am headed back to Sony Ericsson K850i. Sure I could wait for the unlock but I have other issues:

    Hello working A2DP stereo over bluetooth, voice dialing, 5mp camera, instantly working sim, 3g / and edge.

    Grabbing a pair of Voyager 855 stereo earbuds.

    Plus, I couldn't get past the fact that I couldn't skip tracks on the iphone without touching the screen! Do I really need mobile safari and lights out? I think not. I'll just tether the phone to my tablet pc and have a huge touchscreen I can draw on..

    Plus, I can swap in as many 4gb memory cards as I want, which are fast and easy to fill up with music. Drag and drop folders.. no crappy itunes sync.

    Bye apple! Cool phone.. but it's too big and clunky for me..

    Have to agree, once the novelty wears off I feel somewhat disappointed....

    I really miss fast internet, its like being on dial up again.

    Watch out! Plenty of fanbois around here...

    Its a shame you didn't get on with the iPhone, but public opinion (as gleaned by me) seems to indicate that you hold a minority opinion. That's not to say its wrong, of course. You're completely entitled to your views. But I think the points you make, although valid, are probably concessions most people are willing to make at this stage for the other benefits the iPhone offers.

    Personally, I loved my K800i. The best phone I had. Before my iPhone. But in my opinion my iPhone is leagues ahead of the K800i.

    I tried to get the K800i to do music. I tried to get it to do web browsing. I tried to get the K800i to do GPS navigation with an external bluetooth GPS adapter.

    Then I gave up and just ended up using it as a phone. I still wanted a music player and a navigation device, however.

    Then realised the iPhone could do it all, and I was quite happy to leave GPS up to TomTom.

    My only other gripe with the iPhone is lack of 3G. But I'm almost never away from WiFi (which is super-fast on MobileSafari), and I don't think I'm ever going to need fast data access THAT much when I'm on the road. I think I'll settle for O2's iPhone data plan and GPRS transfer speeds for the odd occasion when I'd like to pull down weather or traffic information.

    You mention A2DP stereo over bluetooth and voice dialing - and, while this would be nice, I can understand that no one can produce a first generation device that can do it all, and these are all things that could be added with a firmware upgrade in the future. (plus, I never got voice dialing to work usefully on my K800i).

    You also mentioned iTunes syncing. I'm really not sure what your problem is here. Its been seamless for me. In fact, the whole experience of the iPhone has been seamless. I get the merest few seconds of hang in iTunes when I connect my iPhone, but it unhangs quickly and performs the task without fault. I can only guess that if you're having problems, its either related to iTunes and your media, or something else on your computer.

    I'm one happy iPhone customer, and would never go back.

    N95 is a really good phone, but I personally hate Symbian...the user interface of the iPhone makes Nokia cry...
