Disk mode on the iphone doesn't work, you're forced to use syncing?
That's crazy. Size of the music library I have makes it's impractical to use syncing unless I want to full up half my laptops hard drive.
On on the other hand, with only 8GB.... Well lack of capacity is another reason I'd add to way it might make a bad ipod.
Hello buzz town..
Yet another iphone review. Now i know you are sick of them but I got mine last night and had a "did you notice?" moment after setting it up
First the positvie, LOVE the phone. Love the way it works exacly like it does in the Apple Iphone ads. I am thinking especially of Calamari. Google maps is my favorite feature. Safari works better then any other browser on a phone(i used to have a sidekick, which i already thought was the "real internet" on my phone). Safari would pull up most pages even the sidekick would not.
So My two MAJOR complaints.
1. You CANNOT "drag and drop" indvidual songs or playlists onto iphone in itunes. I can do this with my 5g ipod and its really ticking me off!!! I know you can make playlists and sync them but it just seems like a hassle if i only want to put one or two songs on and "Syncing" feels like it takes forever.
2. The resessed headphone jack. I use my ipod in my car mainly with a basic audio cable going out of the car stereo aux jack in the front. I can not use my iphone the same way. Grrrr!!!! I guess i will have to get the headphone adapter but that sucks because my ipod does it just fine.
3. My wife (who is awesome and let her husband get iphones for the family) became very frustrated at the lack of sync from google cal and google contacts to iphone. I set her gmail up of course but she wants a way to sync iphone to an online calendar app.
4.Works beautifully with Apple Mac- Synced Address book , ical and safari without a hitch. My wife's comptuer (windows Vista) we have to reboot the system to get itunes to re see the iphone if she does not eject it. ***!
Anyway Just my 2 cents,
Please let me know if i am missing anything here or you have had simular issues with the "ipod" portion of the phone
