Thread: Looks like its about time for 3G
06-06-2008, 02:48 AM #21hmmm
some ppl think about the 3g capability only, but what they dont think about is about all the different applications that would be better used like the essential Chat, followed by p2p programs that would use ur 1.5Mbps speed or maybe faster... Also the ability to access ur mac or pc from "literally" ANYWHERE and tranfer big files faster. And many others.. So for those of u who r not yet convinced about why 3G is useful, let me know just one reason 3g is not useful for you. Period.
P.s.. Do not mention the battery, thats obvious...

I can see that there will be a bunch of Business apps coming where 3G + iPhone will be a god send, this is really where the iphone is going to kick @ss, then if it suits, I may take the plunge.
But this is personal thoughts and of course many will feel the need to upgrade to an iphone with 3G, and I say go for it! Don't get me wrong, I love my Iphone and have pages of apps I use all the time, but she'll do me just fine for a while... (that being said, apple might surprise us with 3G AND GPS, and then, well maybe I'll think different... let's wait till Monday)

Sometimes I download songs on P2P networks. I think 3G might be much faster in that regard. I won't make the change just for that though.
I don't completely understand the hype of GPS. Don't you know where you are or where you're going? Or is it just bragging rights to show to your friends? Buy a freakin TomTom, they have more capabilities.
Show me 32 gb and I'll take the 3G and GPS and whatever else comes with it.

All I need to know is if the 3G iPhone will work with the new ATT Mobile TV Service. Thats the deal breaker for me. I'm really hoping it will, if not im getting a Vu. Id imagine they would have advertised that though, but they really havent advertised the 3G iPhone at all (kind makes me weary of all this, but that's another thread....)...
So does anyone know if it will/will not work with Mobile TV?

The google maps do a job of finding nearby stuff and it's on the current iPhone that you can take anywhere.
I have factory nav in all 3 of my cars, Corvette, Camry, CX-7. Let's just say, I'm familiar. They're cute, but not practical if you know where you're going.
I'm not really known for getting lost on foot, but that's just me. I usually have a pretty good idea where I'm going. My 20/20 vision is a reasonably good source of knowing what's around me.
Again, I don't completely understand the hype of GPS on the iPhone. I think it's just bragging rights. But if that's what you want and you are spending your money, go for it.
