    if i get an apple iphone on pay as you go, can I just put my contract sim card in it - even if it is not on the same network?

    the phone will have to be unlocked so you can use it on all networks and all the apps might not work!

    They are very easy to unlock / jailbreak. The only thing which would be useful to find out from your mobile provider is how much data allowence you have on your contract.

    I'd agree with that...

    But seriously the iPhones' applications are its most important feature. Without them you've got a phone without the 'i'

    Why would you want an iPhone? Everything that comes as standard with other smartphones is lacking on the iPhone.

    No expandable memory
    No replaceable battery
    No MP3 ringtones
    No SMS groups
    No bluetooth file transfer

    3G:

    No MMS
    No video recording
    2 megapixel camera
    Non-replaceable battery


    3GS:

    3 megapixel camera - no flash, no shutter button.
    No videocalls functionality
    No FM radio

    If any other manufacturer had made a phone that sucked as much as the iPhoned did, nobody would touch it.

    We've recently had two members of staff at the school who asked us to help set our email up on them, and they've both complained at how many decent features they lack.

    i highly suggest you jailbreak an iphone/ipod touch as you can do so much more with a jailbroken iphone/touch like the highlighted bits above and other things like themes and ssh access to the filesystem to upload files for example.

    In my opinion, invalidating the warranty isn't the ideal solution to getting a working featureset out of a phone.

    can do MMS on the 3G btw webman

    Basically, same old argument, I've not met anyone who's got one and didn't like it. however the queue of people who dislike windows mobile stretches for miles.
