    Default 3GS new features on iPhone 3G?

    Hi

    Has anyone looked at getting the 3Gs features running on previous iphone, like the voice control and the nike accessory?

    Rather annoyed that features that should have neen there right from the start got excluded like that..

    no you wont get voice control on a 3G iPhone with FW 3.0

    The new 3GS Hardware provides compass and auto map orientation, 3 mg camera including focus zoom, video recording, and voice control (but no voice dial on ATT USA unless you pay a monthly fee, in which case you can have it on 3G)

    for a complete list of 3g-S hardware dependent upgrades here:
    Apple - iPhone - View all the features of the new iPhone 3G S.

    new 3.0 software provides cut copy paste, global search, landscape keyboard, stereo bluetooth, and sync Notes, (and MMS photo text for a per message fee..)
    here is the complete list of FW 3.0 features that Will work on a 3G, not just a 3GS:

    I've used the Nike+ thing, it's a piece of junk. You have have to replace it once the sensor runs out of battery, which you can't replace easily.
    Get RunKeeper Pro, it's way better than the Nike+ step counter.
    It uses the GPS to track your location and speed.

    Sigh....
    Do you bother understanding things before you hit the reply button ?

    Obviously, I'm not expecting features based on a hardware upgrade to be available on an iPhone 3G (like the compass or the 3MP camera).

    I am referring to new features that are obviously software only and which have no valid technical reasons for not being available on a 3G other than Apple wanting to differentiate enough their product to justify a new purchase.

    Those are:
    -Nike adapter
    -Voice control

    Those are two features that Apple could have added to the existing iPhone 3G (and 2G) : they are software only.

    I use it with my iPod nano and I disagree.

    While RunKeeper is great, many times I found that it had lost GPS signal and the report was completely messed up. The area where I live and run has a lot of woods ; not good GPS coverage there

    Been using my nike for almost 2 years now, and the battery is still okay... so it doesn't bother me too much
