Check out and the comments. Some interesting user feedback. I had no idea Apple still hadn't fixed the bluetooth issue. Still no A2DP and no file transfer? It's unimaginable.

Hey Peeps,

today was crazy with the release in store of the phone.

after selling and demonstrating it to 100's of customers ive come to the conclusion its not all that. i mean dont get me wrong its a nice toy, but thats where it ends. i mean no itunes access over network pffff, restricted bluetooth, incredibly POOR speaker, have had multiple returns allready due to poor loudspeaker, you can barely hear anyone talking or music.

saying that all phones have there downsides and upsides. as does this unit. each to there own me personally i have a blackberry which does what i need but who am i to judge what a customer needs it for. im just suprised to see the return rate considering its "The product and the best quality as you so often hear"

peace out, and sympathy to all the telco staff who are still working the long hours, im upto 15 in a row and still counting

I beg to differ on the speakers. Having used an N95, and a HTC TyTN II, I'd say the iPhone 3G speakers are on par with that of the N95, and as such is much more superior than the TyTN II.

good point though is the speakers are placed in the side (bottom) meaning they are not easily covered by pocket lint etc so while they may be small, they are probably uite enough.. does nyone know if you can set your own mp3 as a ringtone?

That's amazing as the iphone has a single small mono speaker vs the N95 with 2 stereo speakers. I need to give the iphone a try to see this feat in the flesh Smile

I'm glad I finally got to test the phone myself. I'm sorry bonkiebonks but the iPhone speaker is dismal compared to the N95. I would say it accomplishes around 70% of the volume but the quality is awful.
