I want a portable device that can play music, video and has radio too. Those are the only 3 requirments I have. Not many such devices out there that have brain and looks.
Get an HTC Desire - 499 from Digitec. Don't need to put in a SIM-card if you don't want to use it as a phone.

In spite of being a loyal iPhone user, I must admit that the new HTC with Windows Mobile 7 is pretty cool..

Although the Desire HD with Android is even cooler :-)

I want a portable device that can play music, video and has radio too. Those are the only 3 requirments I have. Not many such devices out there that have brain and looks. Ipod touch is one option but it has no radio! wtf? Also they did not put the nice screen in touch like in iphone.

I don't want to buy iphone and pay monthy fees as I don't require all that. I hate Steve Jobs!
I've upgraded from an iTouch 3 to iTouch 4 yesterday - the new screen is stunning, as far as I'm aware it's the same as the iPhone. It's certainly a heck of an improvement on the old one. The cameras are not as good as the Phone's, but the whole thing is much sleeker and lighter, so that's to be expected.

You can get an app to such as Radiobox which will effectively turn it into a 30,000 station digital radio (over wifi), or otherwise download podcasts from radio stations or other sources on subjects of your choice.

(Hope this is ok, Castro - still on an 'iSomething' theme, and vaguely Phone-related in a compare and contrast way )

Edit: Just thought, does anyone know where to get iPhones/Pods protected, using Ghost Armor or something like that? Hubby had this fitted to my last iPod when he bought it in the US, and it's fantastic. I want it done professionally though, with the proper facility to heat it on, as I'm sure I'd just make a bodge of a DIY kit. Are there any electrical chains that do this sort of thing, or anywhere around Lausanne? Thanks.

Radio not for music but to improve my German by listening to news and general talk shows. .
Good luck with that

All you'll hear (as I've found when trying the same strategy) is bad music and people who sound like farmers speaking 'german', either that or they are gurning whilst trying to cough up phlegm

Get yourself a WLAN/wifi radio at home, then you can listen to DeutscheWelle and DeutschlandFunk, where you'll have at least half a chance of understanding what's being said.

My tip for German listening is FM4 from Austria. The broadcasts are half in English, half in German . . . music is indie-ish. It's a very good radio station. As for an Iphone radio app, I use TuneIn radio.

It's not same. Same resolution but not same panel. TN panel Vs IPS panel. Did I say I think Jobs is a tit?

You could have done it yourself for free online though!

iPhone 5 coming soon

Hello I'm new to this forum and I'm thinking of moving to Zurich soon.

I have been with 02 for years in the UK and I'm currently out of contract which is handy.

I'v got a few questions regarding my iPhone and what would be the best thing to do for the future.

1. Would it be best to just arrive in Zurich and buy a local sim card? What kind of deals do they have locally? How much data download can you have?

2. What's the wifi access like in Switzerland? Is it free or do you pay?

3. If I wanted to have a contract who would be best to use? Will they give me a contract with no credit record locally or fixed permanent address. The new iPhone 5 will be out this summer. I could get one with 02 and would have to sign for a two year deal. The phone would be free.

Some general help and guidance on all this would be great. This post on the forum was done on a iPhone native app. Which is so handy. You got to love technology.

Thank you all.
