iPhone 3G

IMG_0001

Remember this article “Apple or Nokia” well here is the update: I Got My iPhone 3G 🙂 Yes, I finally did, I had a set of rules for my self that I wont buy and iPhone before all of my rules are satisfied, and there were:

  1. The iPhone must be unlocked and I can update it with out any problems.
  2.  It must have full Arabic SMS support.
  3. If (God forbids) it gets broken, I would find some one to fix it.

after almost 2 years of the iPhone release, the top 2 were checked except the last one, but I was so desperate to buy a new mobile phone, after using my E90 for 2 years I needed more, more support and more creativity and software in my mobile, I need to take things from my desktop very easily, and what better device to so with better than the iPhone, but wait a minute, if it get’s broken I have to throw it in trash pin and buy another one! so I found my self wondering around for a new phone, and nothing came to my like, and I thought if I were going to spend 150 KD or more on a Phone, I might buy something I really want wright? and the new iPhone worth here in Kuwait between 250 to 270 KD, and since every one in Kuwait is now going with the Blackberry hype, I new I would find lots of those idiots selling there old iPhone from the previous iPhone hype, so I went to the used market in Sharq and found a lot of iPhones at the price of 200 KD, 190 KD after bargning (I still think I could have got it for less but I was to anxious to get one) so I got one for KD190, saving my se KD60 to but accessories and lot and lots of software (great softwares are between $0.99 and $3.00)

what do I think of the iPhone after using it for a week? let me put it for you this way: If it gets broken I’ll throw it in the pin and buy a new one.

    For photography I suggest these lovely things:

    Also try Kids Paint… but don’t show it to the kids because you will no see your phone again :p . Skype is great for when you are not in Kuwait and want to call home.

    I have a question, It looks like you are connected to the internet with EDGE, does it cost extra to get that from Zain or is it included with the subscription? do they have 3G yet? How good is the internet on the iPhone in Kuwait in general?

    Thanks bodana, but don’t you think photography software on the iPhone is useless, I don’t know, but since we already edit our photos on the computer and then sync them then there is no need for software on the iPhone, unless it is to edit the photos taken with the phone camera, but then again they are very bad quality wise and does not even worth printing them, have you tried to print and edited photo from your iPhone? how is it?

    regarding kids painting, I have a “No kids touching iPhone” rule 🙂 and yes I have skype.

    I had Edge with my E90, and I guess the service is still there but can’t use it with the iPhone, I’ll look it up.

    It depends on how you use your mobile phone photos. I haven’t printed any iPhone pictures yet so I don’t know howvthey look like, but I usually email the good ones to family or upload them to facebook directly from the phone. That’s why photo applications are important to me 🙂 I only download the photos to the computer to archive them.. they never leave it edited or not.

    My kids are addicted to the iPhone, that’s why I had to protect it with a password 😀

    So are you saying you can not use the Internet on the iPhone with Zain? I think it works with Watania, right?

  8. feras says:

    No it does not work, I tried calling them and asked them to sms me with the EDGE settings for the iPhone, they said they don’t support the iPhone, any way I tracked were I can get the support in Kuwait from Zain to i2 and now last thing sone one told me I might get it from Virgin! I’ll try and see.
