The SIM holder was a PITA to get out (they didn't include the tool in the box) so over-engineered for a plastic tray to hold a SIM card in. The fact you MUST dock it with iTunes to get it to turn on and activate itself, which then got iTunes in a hissy fit over not having an apple account, managed to force that off, then every time you opened it it whinged about the fact that it didn't have an account and Steve Jobs cannot sell my details to the world without them etc. It was a PITA, first time I've ever spent so long messing with a phone just to be able to make a phone call!

Its touch screen is also too "hard" it needs to be "softer" as it were IE so you can tap it with a fingernail rather than mash it. Very poor product tbh, good to show its a toy not a serious tool. I will be sticking with the Windows phones or back to a standard non-fancy phone.

I have to say I wasn't a fan of the SIM setup, and the fact it took me a good 15 minutes to work out, but that was partly due to me being a bit thick and partly due to Apple making it so complex. I had the tool stuck to the box so that was helpful.

I looked at the HTC line of phones and played with a few and must say it ticked off most things but then I got to the memory side of things and I was disappointed and after 2 windows mobiles regardless of what I did being totally un responsive and all the issues Ive had with windows mobile as an OS on top of the fact it meant I would have to get a piece of paid for software to synch any music / videos etc to the phone

Got mine this morning on Orange!
Courier on the doorstep at 08:00 hrs...
I have had an HTC Tyan for 2 years and its been a great phone but I found myself using the iPod Touch over wifi for everything else so I bit the bullet even kept my business solo tariff which includes free landline calls for £35 pm
Now I need to find some decent network tools for the iPhone ping telnet etc...
