So I Bought An Apple Iphone Today ....

Recommended Posts

It really depends on what features you have switched on and how you use the phone.

iPhone 3G offers up to 5 hours of talk time on 3G, 10 hours of talk time on 2G, 5 hours of Internet use on 3G, 6 hours of Internet use on Wi-Fi, 7 hours of video playback, or 24 hours of audio playback on a full charge at original capacity. In addition, iPhone features up to 300 hours of standby time.

Things like having the email set to auto check, lots of email accounts, wi-fi switched on, bluetooth switched on and so on will decrease it's life.

I need to charge mine about every other night but as Laura says, it really does depend what you're doing with it.

This last week I've been at Centre Parcs where they have a free wi-fi network. Every day I was checking the net, receiving/sending e-mails, sending texts and listening to music on the iPod. I even made a phone call !

Battery life doesn't really trouble me. Stick it on charge every night and it'll certainly last the next day. Some people have complained about battery life but I question what they've been doing with the phone.

Anyone use an app called Shazam...you hear a song on the radio/tv/pc and it listens to it and identifies singer and song...truly unbelievable...its the work of the devil i say :wub:


Marge: Homer, I don't want you driving around in a car you built yourself.

Homer : Marge, you can either sit there complaining, or you can knit me some seat belts...

And I take it you weren't. Oh, it's an iPhone not an iPod. Welcome to the family. I've put a picture of your Esprit by your contact details in my iPhone. Hope you enjoy it. I think they're great. Bit like having a mini laptop in your pocket.

there is a problem Simon, i need to get a bargain, you need to get the best deal due to the redundancy, these things clash a little :dizzy:

If i got your phone at a bargain price, i would be feeling way to guilty mate !

Is it unlocked? that seems to boost the price up a little.

Travis, I was looking at the HTC phones, the HC would be OK, just not available yet ! and the diamond is Tri-band which does not cover some of Canada :(

Sprint has a CDMA Diamond (different then the GSM Diamond) It has a larger battery, and looses the front camera.

I would Guess Verizon will have the Diamond soon, along with Bell, Altell, and Tellus.

The Diamond has some great upgrades over my phone, the only thing it lacks is the SDHC card slot. But it does come with 4GB flash built in. I currently have a 4GB SDHC, but mine will work with the 8GB as well.

Telus in Canada has the HSDPA version

Yeah saw the Google G1 Android phone (HTC Dream).

I actually have Android running on my HTC Touch right now. Works ok, not as powerful as Windows Mobile. It's actually running in Linux in Windows Mobile 6.1.

It's more of a Smart Phone O.S. than it is a computer like the WM or even the iPhone O.S.

The HTC Touch Pro (Diamond with a slide out side keyboard) is coming to AT&T october 23rd according to their release schedule.... it will be called the "AT&T Fuze"... Both the Diamond and Touch Pro are coming to Sprint very soon.. i think the diamond might actually be available through them right now. an unlocked version of the diamond will be available at best buy for an insane price very soon too.

I tihnk im going to hold out on the touch HD due to the fact that there is no d-pad on it anywhere and i do have a few programs that still require the use of a physical d-pad.

im stillllllll running a Tmobile MDA (HTC Wizard).... antique but it gets the job done! Ive held out on so many different devices because of the layouts or the fact that just one little stupid thing makes the phone not worth buying... Im big on retro-gaming so the ability to have emulators that paly NES, SNES, Sega and arcade games is important to me and there needs to be hard keys that I can map the program to use... iphone has on screen emulators that just suckkkkkk because there is a virtual controller on the screen and you have to sit there tapping the glass screen hoping that it will register the place wher your thumb just hit... screw that.

ive also got playstation working half-assed on the MDA... with the upgarde to the Touch Pro in october, with the WAY faster processor, it should actually run somewhat decent with the frame skipper enabled and sound turned off!

Ive thought about going to Symbian S60 powered phones but i enjoy touchscreen and the vast library of third party programs that are out there for windows mobile powered phones, allthough there are S60 devices coming out soon that have EIGHT megapixel cameras on them... I could finally get rid of the damn canon powershot that resides on my belt everywhere I go.

Travis, you on any of the windows mobile forums anywhere? howardforums, mobile-review, xda-dev?

Well its a definite rip off now, ebay have pulled the listing of the phone i brought (usually kept on file for 6 months)

and the twat is 'no longer a registered user' and when you read his profile hickdickdoc-2008, it has another negative feedback after scamming someone for a xbox too :D

I found the address, going to cool off for a bit :)

Simon came a brought the Turbo and wastegate off me that i brought in the sale ( same price as what i payed for them, as per agreement at the sale, and i would never try and profit off friends anyway )

So I was going to buy a iPhone with this cash, but have now figured that i already have a phone, and the iphone was to replace this AND the ipod, but, the ipod has 16gb of music on it which of course will not fit on a 8 gb, and will leave no room on a 16gb.

So, i have decided to buy one of THESE, it still has WiFi, so i can keep in touch with the forum while in the bar (no laptops allowed as it is a Casino) and will have plenty enough room on for email and games etc, as i will be getting the 32gb if i can.

Where from?, well i may as well take advantage of the exchange rate :P
