The short list of iPhone disappointments

Your Ad Here

Here's the short list :

1. Bluetooth is only good for connecting a headset. That's it.

2. There is no file browser on the device at all. Data must be organized (if at all) in the appropriate application.

3. The camera is a simple application that has one button: the shutter. Pictures come out okay on the device, but nothing too fancy on a monitor, especially if it was an attempt at a macro shot.

4. SIM card is damn near impossible to open, if at all.

5. Web browser is slow, even over WLAN. Even the simple OneList web app that was created takes around 20 seconds to load over WLAN. You can not highlight, cut, copy, or paste and text from a website, and you can not save any images you find from a website either.

6. The keyboard sucks. It gets slightly better after the iPhone "learns" you, as the employees said, but even then, it's not a device you can use with one hand comfortably, much less without looking.

7. You can only send one picture at a time in an email.

8. No custom ringtones and the alert tones can not be changed whatsoever.

9. The default ringtones are incredibly lame.

10. The only form of customization outside of a lame default ringtone is the wallpaper, which you'll only see when you need to unlock the device or when you get a phone call.

1- I have 80 dollar blue tooth head phones (just speakers) that work amazing, as well as I can hack other people's phones strictly through bluetooth.

2- I can comfortably browse any folder using the iPhone display.

3- And if you were smart you would know that there is more than one way to take a picture, and i can even do picture messaging with my iPhone (3g), as well as video recording.

4- you take a paper clip, and push it into the hole on is harder than this.

5- The Web browse is pretty fast, especially for a phone. On just basic internet (i'm on t-mobile), i can access the internet almost as fast as i can at home, (with my wireless N and 20mb dl speed internet). And i can copy, cut, paste, highlight, and even save pictures straight to the phone, and easily access them from the computer and the iPhone. (and even send them as a picture message, NOT E-MAIL)

-The keypad is AWESOME!! if you are a hunt and peck person then it may suck, i text, and type SO much faster on my iPhone than i could with ANY other phone.

-i can not only send MULTIPLE images, but i can compress them into a .zip file and even .rar file.

-iTunes lets you make ringtons with the songs you already have, not to mention hundreds of FREE ringtones you can download using the iPhone.

-The standard tones are better than any other phones ghey standard tones.

-I have a video Background, and EVERYTHING on my iPhone is customized, Mine actually looks and sounds JUST like Vista, and it even has a Dreamscene playing in the background. (but i have music videos as my ringtones, no microsoft sounds).

-All in all the iPhone is the BEST and MOST user friendly phone out there. anyone else who disagrees should go play with a REAL iPhone. PEACE!
