    - No video calls over the 3G network

    - The handset wobbles on hard even surfaces

    - There are a number of messaging downers

    - Camera has no auto focus, nor video recording… nor any settings at all

    - Safari browser doesn't support Flash and Java, doesn't have a download manager

    - Bluetooth support limited to headset use only (no A2DP or file transfers)

    - No office document editor

    - No copy/paste functionality

    - You cannot sync Notes and TO-DOs

    - No memory card slot (but knowing Apple there will never be one)

    Remember this is a phone+ipod, not a computer.

    Also a few of these things like c&p, syncing notes, videorecording - Can all be done if you jailbrake it

    lol, im not saying this is a computer most of these disadvantages are in nokia devices...
    what is the difference between any mp3 and ipod? i cannot see any difference.

    this iphone is considered 3g. so atleast video calls must be integrated. Camera.. has no video??? no auto focus??
    Now just tell me why should i buy iphone? i was really going to buy it. but im not going to buy a device has lower features than the one im using :)

    Hmm... that's some major disadvantages. No bluetooth for file transfer is the biggest IMO and absence of video recording is not acceptable. :(

    To me, the biggest disadvantage is the cost. $75 per month. I think someone on Gizmodo did the math, and it came out to over $1800 over two years to actually call it yours.

    No thanks. I stick to me cheap little samsung. It holds my phone numbers, it takes video, it takes pictures, it plays mp3s. and it was free.
