Alleged Hands On 3G iPhone Experience

Alleged Hands On 3G iPhone Experience

A Vodafone employee has provided information on his alleged hands on experience with the 3G iPhone to iPhone Atlas.

The employee provided the following details:
- The back is gloss black.
- The 4 models we have have a black skin wrapped around the back and glued into place. This is how they came from Apple.
- All are running v2.0 of the firmware.
- The bootloader hardware exploit is now fixed.
- The phone is running V 04.41.01 modem software.
- The phone is locked down like no phone has ever been. At this stage, you can't jailbreak it and you can't hardware unlock it.
- There is an added icon for contacts. This allows you to go straight to your contacts without having to hit the Phone icon first.
- The GPS works very well. It will attempt to obtain your position via WiFi first, cell tower second, then satellite third. The accuracy appears to be within 3 meters.
- We were getting a data transfer of 140kbps on average. It droped down to 70 kbps when we went inside.
- Apart from that, the 'feel' is much the same. The phone is smaller (I would say 20 percent) and it is noticeable when you pick the unit up.

None of the statements above have any credibility as it is now known that the 3G iPhone is slightly thicker, not thinner.

Are you people stupid or just plain dumb? Of course Apple will lock it down now. Have you not heard of the deals they are striking with all the operators on a global basis? Apple is covering all its tracks now. There is no more need to have an unlocked phone (in Apples, and the operators opinion) anymore as there are deals everywhere. If you did not know this, you were blind. It was a bit dumb of the Dev Team, Zibri and the others to show their hand too soon. Of course Apple would lock it down. They had no choice.

Sounds quite disappointing after all this hype. Still I think I will prefer new Blackberry.

Apple will make it again. sort of put the Iphone on sale in Apple stores and online once more and then for some moths people could not unlock it, so what for? I do not understand their marketing strategy they have already saled 5 millions Iphones all over the world they have to be happy of that results so why make the life so difficult to people who want to buy, people who are giving them success?? people like me who bought iphone are making a service to apple not only by buying it but also by buying accessories and earing more money, so why this behaver I really do not understand, really pathetic.
