ok.. I know this question has been asked to death already but.. I’m thinking of getting an iPhone ( if I can renogtiate my current mobile contract ) but here’s the deal…
should I buy one now.. nice cheap prices on the phone and the contract at the moment
or wait for the next super dooper iPhone that will probably be announced two minutes after I sign the contract on one.

wouldn’t exactly call the current deal cheap!
and, IMO, it’s funcitonality is still too limited – e.g. maps, a useful thing to have downloaded to the phone in foreign countries… but you have to download the data live which would cost a fortune abroad. unlike the nokia system where you can actually store maps on the devices.
the ability to not dl and store for later viewing iplayer content is also a put off for me..
amongst several other things. interestingly, the nokia 5800 does both of the above and is cheaper 🙂 ok, the interface might not be as nice, but it’s functionality is potentially better in certain areas.Posted 10 years agochewymk4Member
Remember no Bluetooth functionality (apart from connecting to headset or similar) and no MMS facility (unless you download a pay-as-you-go application).Posted 10 years ago
Saying that, i still think it is one of the best phones on the market but i don’t pay for mine (got to have some perks for sorting out the company mobile phones) so maybe i’m biased! 🙂glenhMember
Basically the mapping available on the iPhone (such as google maps) downloads maps as you use it and they are not saved.
Thus, you need a data connection and one that isn’t going to cost the earth (which it might if it’s in another country from where you bought the phone).
Secondly, google maps if fine for streets, but useless for off road navigation.
If you run memory map or anquet maps on a windows phone you just buy the PC program and whatever electronic OS maps you want and then load what you need onto the phone. No data connection needed and proper maps.
Of course OS maps aren’t available for switzerland, but perhaps an equivalent is?Posted 10 years ago
