Q: I use my Palm Treo 750v to active sync over the airwaves with our SBS at work, will the iPhone be able to do that?

Q: What is the downside of the iPhone not having 3G with regards to net access or any other thing for general use?

Q: What is vodafone saying about the iPhone at the moment?

Oki doki


Q1 How would I do it?
Q2 What is the real difference with only having GPRS? A friend was relling me that the blackberrys in their office that used non 3G were actually performing better than the 3G counterparts. (That make sense?)
Q3 Will they start saying anything this year do you think?

I just watched the 20min guided tour video about the iPhone and think it's kinda cool and nice to use, or at least a refreshing chance (seems so anyway).

What are your thoughts?

P.S Move this to another location if its off the topic.

I think it would be fair to say that it's very unlikely that Vodafone will ever offer the iPhone in New Zealand because it would go against their current business model of heavily customising handset software to generate large amounts of revenue from value added services. A relationship between Apple and Vodafone would have them both wrestling for control and it just wouldn't work.

My guess is that we will see the iPhone available on Telecom's new network sometime in late 2008, or possibly even 2009. By then I believe that the iPhone will have 3G capabilities because they won't launch it in Europe without this.

Roger that Alasta,

So if I was to get my hands on one next month for a try, what would I find I couldn't do that I'm currently doing now?

And how could I do the email thing from my SBS? is that an IMAP type thing?

Just configure your SBS to have IMAP or POP3 - all Exchange Servers support this.

As for "if I get one", mind you, get an unlocked one. AT&T cuts their phones if used for longer than four months outside their "home".
