Summary: "i gave away my original 3G because it was a cool multimedia device but a lousy phone. I finally got a new 3GS the other day and put my bold 9700 to rest while I tested the "improved" 3GS. Call quality (tinny sound, echo,dropped signals) is on par with 3G (poor), versus excellent with Bold (same network of course). Too bad Apple has not gotten serious about the phone part of the device. I have an accord 09 ex -Nav-BT and it took a couple of tries to get the pairing done.
Summary: Avoid refurbished is the lesson here. This was evidently a problem phone, and the refurbish process was very much lacking.
Cons: Bought this for my father. Screen must have been replaced and replaced badly. The home button sticks making the phone unusable. Rebate is taking forever, so once I get that it's $99 down the drain as there is only a 30 day return policy and we only tested the phone properly after this period.
The Apple iPhone 3G (16 GB) Smartphone is an over priced garbage
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Apple iPhone 3G S Black (16 GB) Smartphone is an idiotic waste of money that honesty is nowhere near th worth Steve jobs seems to think it is. Its excessve amount of space is a largely unsensible. The phone in itself holds no true merit and nothing short of a overly priced excuse for what many refer as a modern advancement. There are so many more sensible items that can be purchased that do basically the same thing.
Excerpt: Usually people tend to brag about the apple iPhone, but I dont really see the point in bragging on something that is not really so great. I believe people just brag about them because they think they look nice and they're fun to have, usually though the people that belive this are the ones that haven't had theirs very long or just had a brief encounter with some elses. The truth is why pay so much money on a product that is going to break or mess up within a few months.
Excerpt: This product is only good if you are a customer of the AT&T network (which makes me wonder... why would you decide to be with them still?) Due to the lack of coverage around the country this phone is useless in most places around the US. You will drop in and out of calls and your pricey apps that you bought will be found useless.
