If by this phone you mean iPhone then yes, cingular will be the only one that will carry the iPhone.


To the OP, i would definetly take a look at the iPhone, it has plenty of features including Wifi and if i remember correctly GPS as well. Theirs also a lot of extra features such as full screen ipod, interactive voicemail, call conferencing and others. All with the price tag of 499 (4g) or 599 (8g). I myself am waiting for the iphone to release.

i nearly bought that the other day as i'm using the N80 now but the dealer said that they had a recall on that phone due to its display burning out or some shit like that so i delayed. but a nice phone overall, still deciding if i should still get it or wait for the N92 which there is no set date for its launch

I have an Eten M700 w/ WiFi and GPS. The phone is amazing... though it lacks two things this Nokia has: a good camera and TV-out. I prefer slide-out qwerty keyboards, but to each their own.

Kalin, do you have M700 working with BMW bluetooth? I mean, can you make and receive calls? Phone book transfers??? I want to buy M700 or X500 and I was wondering if that is no problem.

It'll get a bluetooth link, but I have not been able to make a call (only tried once). It's not a big deal to me since I don't use voice services that often.

If I were buying the iPhone(which I plan to do), I would wait until the first wave of phones are released. If you will read up, they are having some bugs which they are working out. It may be safe but just like buying a new car, most companies wait until the second year of production to release the high performance model. Not saying you have to wait a year, but obviously new items will get better with at least a little time.

Cingular. They may not sell it, but it'll work fine. (HSDPA 1900/850)

yeah... except the iPhone tops out with EDGE. The iPhone is practically a WiFi toy between the lack of UMTS and the (suspected) abysmal battery life.
Here's to the 2nd-Generation...
