    As to the rest of the features, The Maestro is right when he/she says that most could come in updates or 3rd party apps.

    Chill people, did you really expect anything other than 3G and GPS? I know that I didn't.
    Exactly, I never used video calling in UK.

    I really hope the pay as you go deal is true for 269, i would definately buy it. I hope the 16gb white version will cost the same as iphone1 16gb as a pay as you go.

    I was desperately hoping for A2DP, but i can live without it.

    Where exactly is everyone getting this o2 info, the o2 website has had nothing on it all day and all night, and earlier when I spoke to the iPhone support team, they had no idea when the 3G is coming or what deals they may or may not have. The girl I spoke to also mentioned that when the original iPhone was released, the staff being trained about the features 2 weeks before launch did not even know that it was the iPhone they were being trained on (I find that hard to believe, but who knows). Anyway where is this extremely dodgy info coming from?
    Peace,

    The whole pay as you go iphone is a total myth so far all I knwo is that:

    o2 is the official & EXCLUSIVE UK seller (no other networks) & secondly on the apple website in the how to buy an iphone section they have now taken down online option and replaced it with Apple shop/exclusive carrier shop hence I am 100% certain it is a sign up contract job before you will get your hands on one.

    iPhone atlas claim they have confirmed info that signing up via itunes is finished however not sure if they are accurate and cant remember the source

    I think its bull that they didnt put flash support on the phone. Also that people have to enter a new contract in order to get one. Oh yeah and now 10 bucks more for the data plan.

    I hope the apple people read these forums and take what people say to heart.

    - We have to wait until July 11th

    Thats it i think, the rest i think, is what my more or less expected.
    I gotta agree with the above except bluetooth... that is definitely a anti-piracy tactic. My biggest thing is the lack of a camera in the front. I know there are lots of really "enthusiastic" people telling us to shush about the camera and stop stomping on Apple's momentous occasion. (Also, I am seriously very excited about the 3G iPhone as well and by no means am saying this is a complete letdown)

    However, come on! this may be one of the first phones with 3G capability that has no front camera for video calling :S That is like producing a car with no glove compartments! or maybe a chair with a hole in the seat! it is just poor design! I own enough ipods, a mac book, a mac desktop to realize: APPLE DOES NOT SUCK AT DESIGN! Come on, most design students would agree with me on this! But seriously, this is a flaw in their thinking.

    Also if any of you iPhone fanatics are also Jap Exotic/Euro/Asia import phone fantatics... That side of the world sincerely loves video calling (well at least I am positive Asia does...) So if you see the crazy world of Japanese phones, they twist and turn in so many ways to ensure that video talking is easy, fun, and convenient! (Google the 905i and 906i series of DoCoMo)

    Anyways enough of my random rant. I still love the large bright touch screen. IMHO it's still the best touchscreen phone available. However I would just say that, the biggest letdown of all will be if Apple sees this and schedules another 32GB upgrade at the beginning of next year with a front facing camera and further alienate all us "enthusiastic" iPhone addicts by killing the 8GB 3G iPhone. *sigh*

    -no front facing camera.. wtf? what's the point of 3g then? no video calling......
    -plastic back-i think that apple tried to save too much money on this model, a metal finish is a lot better.. like the newer ipods.
    -no better camera
    -no mms
    -no flash-online experience is seriously crappier on iphone without flash installed



    i do like that the headphones plug problem got fixed, and it gets a bit better battery life... but c'mon! this phone seems a bit rushed, and a bit of a quick cheap upgrade.... or should i say.. a quick production cost reduction.

    and definitely.... no 3g 1700MHZ band for T-Mo, and no 'home-activation' is just a HUGE disappointment!

    I guess I can understand about the home activation thing upsetting people (doesn't bother me as I have an iPhone contract) but before apple did it, nobody else had, so you can understand why they have gone to the same route as all other phone manufacturers, there have and will always be ways of getting whatever phone you want without a contract. Trust me, give it time, where there's a will, there's a way.
    Peace,

    I am just disappointed at the new Data Plan price, $30.00!!!! I mean we are getting hit by other higher prices [like gas or food] and now a $10 on the Data Plan? C'mon, seriously, if AT&T wants more costumers they really should keep their old Data Plan price.

    Here is more on that. Many RIM, Samsung, LG and other PDA-like, smartphones that have 3G pay the $20. Thats called the Blackberry Data plan or whatever, $20, same as the iPhone's Data plan. Now $30 more on iPhone users, because we surf more? To hell with that, new Data Plan IMHO is gonna be a deal breaker.


    As for the iPhone itself, its gorgeous, marvelous and sweet. Anything it lacks can easily be software updated [except front cam, but I don't care for that front cam].

    So, iPhone as a device excellent new product, AT&T decision to get more $$ off of us, bad move.

    I really can't believe this plastic back crap. I think that totally cheapens the look of the iphone. In the iphone 1 we had this great aluminum and glass beauty, and now with the drop in price (more people will be able to get one) and the cheap plastic I think it is becoming less distinctive.

    I hope that at least the plastic is the rumored "zirconium" or something better than cheap regular plastic. The aluminum back is so scratch resistant and eye catching. I hate this.

    I tryed the first phone with ATT contract. Will never have ATT service again. I hate them. Sold my iphone few weeks ago for a good price, was planning to use the money for the new iphone.

    -$30 data plan... deal breaker, seriously I can get local cable for this much.
    -unable to buy easy without contract



    Sorry Apple, ATT, and even US government. I will not stand for these type of nazi gastopo tactics. You buy this phone you have to pay this month and only from them. I simply cannot buy this device because of the principle of the situation.

    Sorry iphone, I'm going to have to skip you this time around.

    Hello Android.
