Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

the chances of getting the 8gb in white are less good than you imagine, since the 8gb is only available in black.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

The white iPhone is only being manufactured with 16gb, so someone is misinformed.

The availability issue isn't exclusive to Switzerland. It's more or less sold out in the states to.

Hey,

I'm thinking of buying an iPhone with Swisscom. I just used my Uncle's (on AT&T in the states) and it's really great. However, I'm a bit concerned that 1GB/month won't be enough, and the whole up to 5 francs a day will get expensive. Can anyone offer some insight onto this? I will be browsing say...45 minutes a day with a video here and there. Do you think the 1GB will last me the month?

Thanks.
If you have WiFi at home and/or at work it'll be enough. I'm at 350mb now (started counting on Juli 11) with LOTS of browsing - but at home I'm using it via WiFi.

I managed to download Netshare though, which could prove to be a problem data-volume-wise next month :-)

just a general question,

i found a seller, but i dont know if i can trust him, if he accepts payment through paypal, does that mean that he is trustable? or even paying with paypal could be a scam?

please advise
If he sells unlocked 3G iPhones, he's a scammer. There are no unlocked 3G iPhones at this time unless he imported them from Belgium.

they're having major issues with the white ones (cracks in the plastic...) so it's probably better to go for a black one at this time.

At first it was thought that the cracks are simply better visible on the white ones - but turns out hardly any black ones have the issue, so it's probably paint-related.

Re: The iPhone 3G thread and FAQ

So does anyone know when the iphones are stocked up again? Or does everyone (like me ) have to wait another 6 weeks for the next delivery of the black 16 GB 3G iphone.

Check out your local Phonehouse and Interdiscount XXL shop. There seem to be plently of iPhones around. If you're willing to settle for a white one you might have more luck.

Also, I've been reading reports that Interdiscount XXL shops frequently get shipments of Orange iPhones

yupp, looks like iPhone SIM Free have done it again. IPSF was the method I used to unlock my first iPhone - worked like a charm and was upgrade-resistant like nothing else.

Hmm - 599 Fr. for the 16gb version and 2 years of international guarantee. Doesn't sound right. The price is way too low and Apple doesn't offer an international guarantee for the iPhone.

Warning: 2.0.1: Orange users, don't upgrade yet!

According to this http://www.macprime.ch/news/article/...nd-das-iphone/ , the 2.0.1 update has a bug that will prevent it from correctly installing the network settings for Orange-locked iPhones. This will lead to the iPhone getting partially bricked (the phone part doesn't work anymore) after the upgrade!

Only Orange Switzerland and a few foreign providers seem to be hit by this.

It's always best to wait a week or so with these things and let everybody else beta test it anyway.

true - I mainly upgraded because I was experiencing quite a few software issues on the 2.0 firmware (mainly iPhone randomly rebooting after launching applications, keyboard lags in SMS app and Safari) - the keyboard lag thing has obviously been fixed - for the rest it's too early to tell. But right now I'm glad I'm on Swisscom
