    Well I have bitten the bullet and taken the iPhone because I could not wait until the 22nd October to get the Bols (wish I had waited now).

    OK in the UK with O2 so the unlimited data and WiFi is cool...with Bold would not have had the WiFi part.

    The iPhone is the best GUI out there on the market and no one comes close to it even after a year of trying.

    I do not need to buy an iPod now either so thats cool.

    Now that all aside it is a limited phone and and even more limited smartphone, the styling I prefered the first one but 3G is 3G so must make sacrifices.

    I am looking to get some apps because frankly in all mobiles people have to make sacrifices somewhereas did I with the iPhone.

    E-Mail - happy with but how do you get push e-mail setup on there or is that just MS exchange server deal only

    Web Browsing - nothing to complain about there nothing comes close to it

    Music - again great the best on the market

    Video - here I have had to take a step back as my last phone could play DivX is there software that allows me to do this on the iPhone

    Camera - well i beleive if you want good pictures use a standalone camera however my last phone 5 megapixel....however the iPhone camera gets slated but is a very crisp image...also last phone had ability to create photoslideshows set to music and edit photos ont he phone...not hugely important but nice to have so is there any software for this

    Office - this for me is the biggest failing in the iPhone as my last 4 phones could do this and that was to create, edit and e-mail word, excel and powerpoint documents.....this is something i could have had with the bold but sacrificed in the iPhone for a better GUI in the hope there is software i can get to do this

    Portable Drive - most phones npw can act as a portable had drive why can the iphone not do this and again is there software to help

    MMS - basic phones do this vut not the iphone...thats just wrong....however not something i use often but nice to know it is any software for this

    Also would like to share the net connection with a laptop...also any other useful software I should have...not really into games but if i was the iphone is the phone to have that I know.

    I may seem to be moaning but if I am I do not appologise for it. There is no perfect phone out there but that does not stop me looking.

    Your problem is that your post is practically incomprehensible. I had to read it twice to get through the whole thing.

    And all of your questions (which are more complaints than questions) have been beaten to death here already. As has been said, use the forum search and try to enjoy your phone. Or if it really doesn't meet your needs, sell it and get a phone that meets your needs. The iPhone is not for everyone.

    And you can also search the app store in iTunes as well.

    Ok, I'll bite:

    Email push: dependent on your email provider?

    Video: You'll need to convert divx to another format prior to loading video onto your iphone.

    Photo editing: There is software available on the app store. Search for photography.

    File sharing: There is software available on the app store.

    MMS: It is left out on purpose. I'm not saying it's a good thing, but it's that simple. I don't think there is software to specifically send out MMS, but maybe connection to a server that does.

    Office: Not sure.
