    To be fair, If you have no need of it why get one


    What do you mean "if I have no need of it" does anyone need one? isn;t it about wanting one?

    Like your changing avvys.

    "To be fair" is better than your "Oh wait" tbh

    advice is to just explore the APP store and see what appeals to you. If you're into games you can search by category. I use the app store to get apps for business related reasons however you may not need these.

    Be ready to charge it every few hours, dont hold it unless you buy a bumper, and make sure you have unlimited internet bundle as it will eat hundreds of MB sat in your pocket

    Only the bumper bit is true(ish), the rest is the usual inaccurate nonsense. Oh and BTW, the iPhone 4 has one of the best smartphone battery lifes. Not heard of any major issues with data usage, apart from the usual idiots. Windows Phone had a problem with data usage, maybe you meant that.

    Sorry DG, you need new lines.

    Should be "If you don't have an iPhone..... you don't need an iPhone"

    i'd have waited for the new iphone if i was you..... oh well.

    Depending on other tech you might have and are wirelessly connected you can:-
    Control your hi-fi & stream music to it eg. Logitech duet
    Control your tv (search Tv make app eg Samsung), computer (splashtop), print directly to wireless printer eg search Epson app, play games, watch TV (BBC Iplayer & TV Catchup), do facebook, read your emails, use it as a SatNav, Skype, check prices (RedLaser app), Tesco Clubcard (does barcode for scanner & updates points), News Apps (Sky & BBC) and lots of others.
    Look on internet on iphone for free app alert and save to desk top so you can see what has just become free. Enjoy

    Personally I think they should just up the ante with those adverts and go with:

    "If you don't have an iPhone..... you're a loser."

    Would be no more patronising than the current one

    I love the " why do you need it?" comments. Never heard of wanting something?

    I don't "need" a missus who is size 8 with ample cleavage who goes like the clappers and takes great pleasure in the nobel art of fellatio. Still want one though!!!

    You see it would still be better "If you don't have an iPhone..... you're a winner"

    Seriously though they are stylish and quite good but if a chav/ charver has one it spoils the mystery and is simply an illusion of grandeur

    btw, i have an iphone 4 lol...

    vibeone, ur getting old.. what are you now? 13?

    :P

    and my comment is more accurite than you may think..

    if you intend on playing all the apps/game you put on them, then it will run out of battery very quickly, i wasnt suggesting it just drains without doing anything.. the bumper issue is just silly for a phone these days, and yes, no matter what you may think, they eat data sat in your pocket, you may not think it's a lot, but put a pay and go sim in it without a data plan, and £10 will be gone in less than a day, just being sat in your pocket...

    that said... i love my iphone.. wouldnt have any other phone, ever

    Why on earth would you use any smartphone without a data plan? I don't think it's fair to single out the iphone for that one.
