    ITS iphone guys!!

    probably the most overhyped mobile phone of all times!!it somehow lives up to its hype.and somehow below par.

    BUT all in all it sets a whole new level of how mobile phones should perform their tasks.since according to my personal experience it has nothing new!!just same things assembled together and done in apples way.in summary it introduce same things done before in a different way!!definetly a better one!!

    the WEB,WIFI,Music and many of iphones features have been introduced in lots of phones and they never received the hype that surrounds the Iphone.

    in EUROPE people are calling it "jesus phone" hawa wamefika pabaya sasa!!

    u might take the iphone as a slight factor BUT ask NOKIA they will tell you why they are make the iphone KILLER.regardless of having one of the most powerfull and complete phone ever to hit the market N95 8GB on the market.still NOKIA execs thinks that they need another IPHONE killer.

    yeah it scares people in mobile phone cooperate world.the only thing that leaves them breathing more free is steve jobs decision to lock up IPHONE-which is just another apple classic move.

    IPHONE is not complete..,i think steve jobs did this on purpose!!so that in a year or so he will have like 5 release of IPHONES!!isnt that nice for the market!!!

    i personally own an IPHONE..,which i unlocked so i am free to use any network i want,also i have installed a lot of native applications that makes it even worthy of the pricetag.

    i decided to have one just because,i have always been a technology enthuatist.And,i wouldnt let history be made that simple,and i wasnt living in it!!

    basically the point of my post:-customising an IPHONE,whether you want information about it,or you are planning on having one,or you already have it and you want to explore it..,this post might prove usefull.since i believe wan JF will give in
    their contributions.

    How much does an unlocked iPhone cost, in USD, and would using it in Tanzania be worth the price?

    it actually costs the same as the locked one!!i have heard in germany people are buyinng unlocked iphones for something like $950 but i believe thats just too much since the technology needed to unlock doesnt worth that much.

    so u can buy it from apple,through credit card in US!!and if you buy it i will be able to unlock it for you for FREE..,

    its cost is $399

    just buy it dude.

    i will unlock it for you for free!!

    its a great phone!!

    as i will always say..,it has all things that were done before in other expensive full featured phones,all that makes it stands out is the way it does things!!EXCELENT!!

    i dont know what you do,BUT if you are that type of a person who connection on the GO is your main priority,then you have GOT yourself a phone!!

    i think you can read it features above.


    also i am not sure of how WIFI acces in TZ is currently,also if our local networks supports EDGE,which are IPHONES main network acces points,u can also use normal GPRS and also use VPN.

    If you like MUSIC and ever thought of having an IPOD or u are using IPDO classic,and have heard of the mighty IPOD TOUCH,then IPHONE has IPOD TOUCH integrated in IT!!

    that means you BUY BUYING an IPHONE you are becoming the owner of an IPOD touch worth 300USD currently!!

    either way an iphone fits many user,

    i personally am able to monitor stocks with 20 mins update,view weather updates on the go,receive GPS navigation,browse GOOGLE MAPSwith satelite view and so much of other things through its native application base,and web applications.

    really its up to you!!

    If you wanna buy one go to or get someone in France to buy for you if that is easy for you of course, their policy there prohibits any communication device manufacturer to lock their device on to one service provider... therefore iPhones sold there are unlocked...

    PP, once you unlock it (with software or hardware), will it allow patches and other upgrade thereafter from Apple along the way?

    Again PP, Can you assure someone with such a product that once unlocked you won't compromise its functions?
    Thanks.

    i have been using an unlocked iphone since September..,when i bought it and unlocked it,it was version 1.0.2 and now i am using version 1.1.2,

    that tells that i have been able to upgrade firmware from 1.0.2 to .1.1.1 to current 1.1.2

    i am using all the features that an unlocked apple AT&T customer can use.

    i have also installed a lot of applications that makes the real cost of my IPHONE worth even MORE.just imagine with MMS,live GPS,Radio,PDF viewer and editor,To do list,photo uploder and loads of other software how much would it have worth.

    so the answer is YES,an unlocked IPHONE perform just the same as locked phone.

    ..ukinunua hong kong itakuwa bei poa zaidi, and unlocked.

    ..nasikia si zaidi ya dola 500 na pengine hata dola 300 inapatikana. sasa, usiniulize kama ni fake au vipi, ila nasikia ni the real deal!


    ..hiyo N96 itakuwa kama 1 m or so kwa bei za bongo. nalinganisha na bei za simu nyingine latest za nokia smartphones.
