    So I got an iPhone today form Regents Street store.

    So far this thing is brilliant! I am still very much getting used to it but the keyboard is very nice, a bit clunky at times when you are swapping between numbers and letters. I am amazed at the quality of the speaker. I was thinking of getting an in car player but I may not need to.

    I havn't tried video yet, that is the next thing. I am tempted to hack it but I want to play with my virgin phone for a while.

    Also I am temped to get some new headphones. Do I get some all-in-one solution (headphones and mic in one) or get the splitter they had at the Apple store of adaptor and mic, then you can add your own headphones....

    I used to have a drive-and-play until some little **** when and stole it out of my car and caused £500 damage to it. The drive and play was connected to my aerial connector and when they yanked it out they broke my aerial connector so if I want to set up an iTrip I need a new stereo. Bit of a bummer really!

    I was very surprised to read this because mine is rubbish. Pure distortion at any audible level. Perhaps it's faulty.

    I was thinking that same thing!

    The other strange thing I noticed was that when I go into carriers under settings, I have options for Vodaphone, Orange and t-Mobile Uk, what is that all about?

    I'm on my second iphone now and the speaker quality on both is identical, poor while playing music and distorts easily. From what I've read most of them are the same.

    EDIT:

    I've just tested this some more and I'd say the speaker in my replacement phone is indeed able to play music louder and clearer than the original iPhone I owned. It's not perfect but it is improved.

    the iPhone speaker is not a "good" speaker by any measure; but, if you're just looking for sound - it does that

    its a standard feature on most phones - when you hit carriers, the loading.... cycle is very misleading, its actually searching for any phone network in its signal area. eg if you go abroad, then these will show foreign providers.

    Something else I have noticed, how God damn uncomfortable those headphones are!

    I have been using the Apple in-ear headphones with my iPod for years and they are great, but the new headphones are terrible. I suppose it is because I am not used to them. Well some new headphones to go on my Christmas list ;)
