    I just have a couple of questions about the iphone.

    1. Can you set the iphone to connect automatically to any open Wi-Fi network?

    2. Is the stocks and weather apps auto refreshing its data, or only when you open the app it refreshes?

    3. Is EDGE very slow?

    EDIT: 4. How many MB's dose a Gmail email check take?

    1. Once you select a wifi network the next time your within range you get connected to it automatically.

    2. You have to open the app for it to refresh

    3. depending on your area, i found it awfully slow in the start but now I am getting used to it. It gives me an average of 190 kbps at times.

    Not a big number I cant tell you how much is it going to be exactly but its not any considerable value.

    I find EDGE to be acceptable in the NYC area.

    I was in Denver recently and it was much faster there.

    There's a website called iphonenetworktest.com or iphonespeedtest.com.

    can i add some?

    when the phone is docked, can you still use the BT headset for when calls come in?

    is there any other interaction on the mac, other than itunes, with the iphone?

    has anyone found an app that emulates the phone like SJ does in the demo's?

    when docked, can you select people via itunes and call via the BT headset?

    thanks :)

    1. yes
    2. nope. you can pair your mac with your iphone, but it won't do anything (no transfer of files or pictures, no capabilities with the Address Book app)
    3. no. do you mean how steve was able to show what was happening on the iphone on the big screen? steve said at the intro that he had them set it up with a special board inside to do that. don't think it can be done without some internal modification.
    4. no. you can choose folks in the contacts list on the iphone while it's docked, but there's no way to view and select contacts in itunes and call them.

    Yes. I do all the time.

    Not yet. Put leopard and leopard mail should change all that. (rumor)

    ? not sure what you mean.

    no. no itunes -> phone dialing. I have found that the dock will hold the iphone fine though so you can point to it with your finger and dial.

    Yes

    iPhoto for syncing photo's is about it. (Contacts/Calendars to a certain extent but those are synced through iTunes unlike photos.)

    I haven't seen one...

    Nope, Im hoping this will be allowed eventually but system wide... (from contacts, calendars, mail etc)
