Missed call Alert ?

Is this not an option? I can go for a while and only when I look at the phone I realize I missed a call. An audio alert is a basic function of every other phone I've owned. I wish this one had it. Is there an app for it?

Sim card swap????

My wife busted her screen. I have ggek squad protection on my iPhone she does not (figured id be the one to trash it!). If we swap sim cards will her broken phone essentially become "my" phone with the geeksquad protection? Do you see where I'm going with thus?

Video on iPhone 3GS

I need to know / confirm the time limit when recording video on iPhone 3GS. I read in the review that it captured over 5 minutes of video capture... I am curious if the limit is actually based on available memory or if there is a preset limit. I am NOT asking about MMS as that is not a concern. Any help is appreciated... Many thanks.

3GS Voice dial w Bluetooth????

Traded in our less than thirty day old pair of 3G for the 3G S

Can't seem to get voice dial to recognize any names. What am I missing? voice dial with Bluetooth (plantronics voyager pro) not supported? Can't get it to work at all.

Turn by Turn Nav?

...or lack thereof.

I though that was one of the things that the new software/phone was supposed to have. Have I just not found it yet? Or am I going to have to go out and buy an expensive Tom Tom piece of eqipment made for the iPhone. This is sort of a crock as they billed the new software as offerimg this.

3GS - Network Issue

I've have my 3GS for a couple of weeks and recently noticed that for some reason I am only getting the Edge network in places I used to get 3G coverage but when I enable Plane mode and then turn that off, I can get the 3G network... Anyone else having this issue? I am considering requesting a new phone since it really shouldn't happen...

Call quality and reception?

I am considering getting the Iphone 3Gs and have read quite a few reviews. Most of the reviews I have read do not talk about the quality of the calls or the reception. How is the actual call quality of the phone? How is the reception of the phone? I need it to be a good phone first. I live in Georgia, metro Atlanta and am currently with Verizon. I am also a Mac guy. Thanks for any help.

Just because

thank you apple "enthusiasts" for throwing out my review and rating it as inappropriate when i owned the phone and did not like it. the fact of the matter is you guys are brainwashed yuppie zombies and need to learn to get a life, learn where your priorities are and stop complaining. the fact of the matter is i actually owned the phone and i found it useless compared to my touch pro, i rated it a zero because that is my personal opinion of the phone based on my experience with it. i am contacting phonescoop to have my review reposted or i will repost it myself again. its my god-given right to rate the phone whatever i want, and its your god-given right to rate my review based on its helpfulness, not rate it as inappropriate because you do no...

Touch Screen?

Do any of you know if there are any other phones that use the Apple iPhone screen?

By that i mean the way you touch it and the response you get. There are plenty of touch screens i have tried but no other seems to behave like the iPhone screen.

A friend told me the iPhone screen reacts to teh energy in your finger vs. having to press it on other phones?

Thanks for any help Smile

Any problems with screen going to landscape mode?

I am considering moving to the world of the iPhone this winter when my current contract with another provider expires, so I went to an apple store to try one out.

For the most part I really liked what I saw, but one thing that bothered me was the fact that the phones don't seem to like going into landscape mode. Wasn't that one of the big changes to the 3.0 OS?

The Apple store I went to had 3 3G S models and one 3G. None of them would consistantly going into landscape mode. 2 of the "S" models and the 3G running 3.0 would not change at all. The third "S" would do it after a 10~15 second delay. Two of the employees couldn't explain it, and seemed rather embarassed that their demo's weren't working properly.

I prefer the landscap...

How much gaming can the screen take??

I'm just got the 3G S and I'm worried about the durability of the screen. I've been playing baseball slugger (awesome) and I notice myself hitting the screen pretty hard when I swing. Will this constant abuse lead to a cracked, loose or flawed screen in anyway? how strong is the screen??? Thanks!!!!
