    Did anyone else buy an advent calendar a few days ago when it was 25 days left until November 9th? :p












    (I'd like to make it clear that I don't have an advent calendar I merely joked about it at work and was mocked! Wooh just 17 days left!)

    Good idea about the advent calendar and is somewhat appropriate as the iPhone launch will be Christmas come early for some people:D. Well it probably will be for me.

    Although I think I might be having 2 Christmas' this year. One on Nov 9 for iPhone launch and then a bit later when i hopefully get an iMac.

    I know what you mean! I've been waiting for this phone Since Jan, and when it was released in America I wanted one, now I'm so fed up with wanting one that I know when I get one I will probably be dissapointed, because I've hyped it up to be the most amazing thing in the world!

    This worries me to an extent as well, but somehow I think that most of us will be delighted with our new gadget!

    I have to admit that I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be as good as I was hoping....until I tried the iPod Touch and I was like Dude multi-touch rocks. But playing with the Touch made me sad because I still have to wait for the iPhone :p

    The iPhone is so much better than the touch. Just wait til you get your hands on one. I couldn't wait...

    Not long left dude! Sorry to torture you. Just look at how shiny it is. Then imagine using it... using it is the best. The best. I enjoy it more than my MacBook (email, net, itunes). I really do. You'll love it.

    If you're in Manchester or going to MacLive Expo you can have a look :)

    I love this. Flicking through coverflow and oh! a call? pressed remote on headphones to take the call and just look like a nutter talking to himself with an iPod :cool:

    How could you do that to us. The sight of an iPhone on the net these days makes me water at the mouth :D:D

    I really can't wait to get one in my hands. Roll on nov. 9

    Does anyone else spend all their time on these forums just trying to get one more piece of information about the iPhone? Or have a bunch of videos in iTunes which they watch everyday! OMG the wait is unbearable!

    I can make a new video if you want... what do you want to see it doing? How about I make a video of it playing a video on youtube? :D

    Seriously - if there is anything specific you want to see before you sign the dotted line I would love to gloat. I mean help. :rolleyes:

    i have one rather daft question, if you charge it all night can you get up in the morning and simply take it off the cradle or do you have to wake your mac and eject the phone from itunes?

    Just pull it off. After iTunes syncs, it is then ready to be removed (as in my pic). You can just pull it off the cradle and get going.

    It also comes with the cutest wall charger in the box! I can take a photo of it tonight if you like ;)

    Any more questions? I am happy to answer - no matter how 'stupid' or pointless...

    when you get finger prints on it can you see them when using the phone and are they easily cleaned off with your shirt?
    is the cloth u get with it any good?
    will it easily connect to my netgear wireless router? i'd like to see a video of it.

    cheers!

    a) Finger prints are a non issue. You see them when the phone is off (unless wiped clear) and then you cannot see them at all with the screen on - it's too bright and crisp.

    b) The provided cloth is just fine, as is a slow wipe with a Tshirt or a finger (as opposed to many prints, just one smooth slide).

    c) it easily connected to my BTHomeHub (which my Mac needs the installer CD for if I delete the profile). The Homehub is a crap router - the netgear will be fine I am more than sure.

    Out of interest - I changed the input to my headphones with a scalpel and PTFE tape so that it fits snugly in the iPhone recessed port. Worked a treat. Bassy music here we go!

    Having said that if anyone calls me, I will miss taking the phone call with the provided headset as that is so cool. Music fades out, ringer fades in, start talking, stop, music fades in... awesome
