Customer Reviews
Russell McDermott from Birmingham, UK said

"If you buy one of these on an o2 contract, they have good & bad points. As a web browser & iPod, they're excellent. As A phone, do yourself a favour and buy a 20 nokia instead . The iPhone can't read your sim card, so you either use your old phone to put your contacts on to your pc & transfer them to the iPhone or you type them in one at a time. The Bluetooth is very limited, and won't exchange data with other devices, nokia phones, tomtom sat nav etc There is no inbox or outbox for text messaging , you can't forward text messages, and you can't "group" text. So if someone sends you a joke, grab a pen and write it down. Then type it out and send it to mr. A.......then write the message out again and send it to mr. B.... Etc etc People who had their phones unblocked have access to third party applications that resolve or partly resolve most of these problems."

"This is defintely not worth the money, the touch screen only works when it wants to. You can't connect it to all wireless internet devices. If you buying one, your just wasting you money."

"Id like to clear up Russells comments:
The iPhone software is updated (just like iTunes) bi-monthly on average. With each upgrade to the phones software (called firmware), new enhancements are added. I got the phone with 1.1.1. since then 3 updates have come out - all free - and I CAN do everything he said I could not. The 1.1.4 update brings mass text forwarding, multi person texting. More updates are coming, including Flash players for the web browser.
Like he says, you can get 3rd party apps. This involves 'jailbreaking' the phone, meaning you effectively hack the firmware to allow you to install any program designed for the iPhone. There are numerous guides on the web for this. you can also unlock the phone with one of these applications.
I have a jailbroken 1.1.4 iPhone. I have installed about 40 different programs, games, tools. including a video recording program which uses the camera!

This is by far the best phone around if you know how to use it. My only issue is, the phone is delicate. and if you have a jailbroken unlocked phone, and update the firmware through iTunes, you then have to re-jailbreak/unlock, and reinstall all your 3rd party applications. only takes 20 mins but still a pain!

Otherwise, highly recommend!!

mike tyler from london, uk said

"Well it's a great looking phone with thousands of great applications, but the real problem is the hardware. So much goodness packed into a small box. The problems with overheating are probably a bit overstated, but you wouldn't want one to set fire to it self in your pocket. The other known problems about it are many, but the real problem is getting it fixed or exchanged. I committed to spend over 900 on an Iphone, but did you know you can't just go into apple and get a new one even if the old one has an obvious physical problem. Mine has stopped vibrating, as well as loosing the network, I've just been told they won't replace it today, they have run out of Iphone appointments. So I'm sitting here after having to argue very strongly to be seen at all waiting for a standby appointment, It ironic really because the place is full of red tee shirted apple staff with very little to do. So buy your phone experience from Apple but don't expect to get much in the way of service if it all goes wrong."

"Please Do NOT protect me from myself! I can't believe that there is no way to save an e-mail attachment. Also, there is no way to browse the files on my phone. I understand that I should have been able to browse thew file system before the last update. Is this an Apple thing that everything just happens in the background and I do not need to be able to see or access anything? This is my first experience wit an Apple product. As a Windows Power User, I am very disappointed! Nokia let me backup and edit my whole phone. They gave me full access to all my phones folders and let me manage my contacts on my PC. It never occurred to me that such basic actions would be blocked by Apple."

John Vyce from Manchester, United Kingdom said

"The iPhone 4 is a fantastic handset, yet I sometimes face issues with it and also have difficulty using it, thus I don't have enough time to go into the Apple store.

However I had to make time to go in and get support from the Apple staff, they were very helpful, supportive and friendly.

I really do recommend and It would be great if I can get direct support online, or an official customer forum within the apple site.

Just a little thought.

GREAT HANDSET! :)
