    So 2 days ago I finally purchased an iPhone 4 16GB model. I have to admit that its becoming my most favorite gadget at home. I set it up with air play and home sharing and its just awesome! The apps that are available for it are great too!

    I do have to get used to the keyboard as I've been a blackberry user for years, but the iPhone definitely is a better phone than the BB. The only thing I would say that I miss about the BB is the BBM and the keyboard, but in every other aspect, I find the iPhone a lot better.

    Same. Got an iPhone 4 a couple of months ago, but have a Curve 9300 from work. Strangely though, I've found myself using the Blackberry more due to a) Quicker texts, and b) Weight. I can't stand the slightly heavier feel of the iPhone in my pocket weirdly...

    I find myself using the iPhone a LOT for web browsing, games, etc - Plants V Zombies is a current favourite.

    Just picked up 3.5 mm to RCA cable this morning, as well as a USB cigarette charger and a sync cable which means I can now use Spotify premium through my car speakers (yay!) whilst its charging.

    With regards to BBM, have a look at an app called WhatsApp, or Liveprofile - basically the same as BBM and it's good for sending people files over your phones internet connection, pictures etc. Also - it's available on android and blackberry OS so if you have people on android/blackberry they can use it.

    It'll cost you 59p - but it's a good investment if other people use it :mrgreen:

    I thought of getting the iphone 4 but settled for the new samsung galaxy s2 which should be arriving the next few days. I think though that the iphone 5 would be a great contender to samsung galaxy s2.

    What's app is what I use. I do have a BB as well, but it's a work phone and I do use BBM on it so it's alright right now... Most of my buddies have BB's so I kind of want the BBM.

    Application development on the iPhone has been one of the highlights of the device since its inception. Developers are encouraged to design and sell their own applications, and there are thousands of applications available in the iPhone App Store. Even though there are several hundred useless applications, there are hundreds more to make life easier in the palm of your hand.

    I cant beleiev no one has mentioned games for this phone yet lol. Theres quite a few to be honest, everyone knows angry birdd. Theres also game you can play against friends, which i like. Look for chess with friends, words with friends and hanging with friends. The last one is funny as yuou get to see your friends trying to solve your word.

    Good for when you have a bit of spare time

    iPhone rules when it comes to applications and games. There is no other brand with so many different applications from many different developers. I have used older ones and plan to buy the iPhone4. So I would like to know if, other than getting used to it, there are any serious or technical problems a user might face.
