Did you just get an iPhone 3G? Post your first impressions here.
A few quick impressions ...
I picked up the white. It is dead sexy. The plastic back is really nice and doesn't feel cheap or like a step back from the chrome.
On the ringer switch, is it still only "ring" and "Vibrate? No Silent?
Also if the phone is in airplane mode (phone off) can you still access the internet (via 3G or wifi)?
You cannot access iTunes over 3G, still only WiFi... I was hoping this would change so you can get any song you want on the go, maybe this will change.
another interesting thing is iphone 3g boot up time is slower than iphone
I can confirm over wifi (believe this is mentioned in the guided tour) unsure on 3g.
WiFi on planes will be accomplished, I imagine, just as it is on busses, trains, and ferries: the transport has a connection of some sort (satellite, typically) which is shares via a wireless router. Presumably airlines do this because of they can strictly control the frequency, bandwidth, etc of the wireless signal being passed through the plane.
