    Ah, I see. So data roaming off means no means no cellular internet (and therefore no Maps), but you can make and take calls? Gotcha.

    Don't think we get GPRS in Ireland, never seen that circle indicator, just Edge/3G.

    Well finally I have my hands on one :D But even after asking them if my SIM would be 3G as it is an old one, its not. So another quick trip into town to get that swapped.

    Any decent maps of Thailand then?

    Local storage.

    Whole country.

    Simple question, but I want to be sure; "Unlimited data and wi-fi" means I can use the net on the iPhone as much as I want for free, right? I remember reading on here somewhere someone incurred a charge for something to do with data, but I think it was because he/she was roaming? Not sure.

    Yup. As long as it's not abroad and I think the free wifi (other than your/unsecured networks) is for The Cloud zones.

    Excellent. Really tempted to order one, I sold my old iPod a while ago, and my phone is pretty basic.

    im at work.
    is there any way to copy files to the iPhone without going through itunes (using as a portable hard drive?).
    I can take the pics off there, but not add pics to it (retarded!)

    Don't think so. Stupid Apple.

    That is apple's motto when it comes connectivity.

    Anyone used any of the sat nav apps yet? I'm tempted to give Co-pilot a try but reluctant to chuck 25 around on a whim.

    Yeah, I have Co-Pilot, and also tried one of the free ones. I found the interface in Co-Pilot pretty unintuitive (it is a bit of a half-arsed port from a non-touchscreen version, and you can tell), but when it works, it works very well. The way the road is displayed is good, as are the voice instructions.

    The problems that all sat nav apps share are 1) GPS signal dropping out and 2) battery life.

    The Bose one looks good, about £250. Plenty of cheaper ones, depends whether you're going to have it as your main syst I guess

    I need answers to the following question quick, Quick, QUICK!

    Is there any option to specify that a specific number be sent straight to voicemail if it tries to ring me, and that the caller won't necessarily realise they've been 'blocked'?

    Preferably I'd also be made aware of their attempted call, so that I could respond back in a timely manner.

    Cheers!

    Don't think you can. Surely you just not answer the call when you see the number?

    UNLESS - you don't want the person next to you know that someone called you, I guess.

    If you tap the button at the top of the iPhone once when someone calls you, it silences the call from ringing, but doesn't let the person calling know. To them it just sounds the same, so it would eventually go to voicemail.

    Tapping it twice sends them straight to voicemail.

    Yeah. My thing is, I don't want the person to think I'm ignoring them, ie my phone is on and ringing beside me, but I'm just not taking it. If it went straight to voicemail, I could say "oopsie, no battery/signal!", etc. And also..

    Tapping it twice sends them straight to voicemail.
    ..that's a manual solution that could work, but you'd have to catch it instantly, otherwise it's even more obvious!!
  • Deleted user 29 November 2009 11:56:56
    Just let it ring out then.

    Which is what I addressed re CosmicFuzz' (apostrophe still applies) first para, and what I'll have to do it seems.

    I just press either volume button to silence it.
  • Deleted user 2 December 2009 10:02:31
    Can't you asign a ringtone to specific people (assuming here, I don't have an iPhone yet)? If so, create a silent mp3 and make it the tone for that person perhaps? Or, vibrate only for that person?

    Yeah, this is an option. I have a seperate ringtone for my family.

    This thread will do. Fucking iTunes wiped all my music whilst synching some tv shows. Fuck knows why, hadn't changed my music library in months. Most annoying, away from home for 3 days and no music now. Gah!
  • Deleted user 2 December 2009 14:30:07
    Unlucky there Dougs :(

    So, is O2 the best to get a contract iPhone from? Or are Orange much better in anyway?

    I believe price wise they are almost exactly the same, orange may be slightly cheaper.

    However Orange have the largest 3G network in the UK BUT in my experience the shittest voice network.

    On the flip side O2 have a better voice network and aren't cunts.

    I like O2, probably just because Sean Bean voices the ad's.
