For Bite sms , slide the message from left to right.
As in
whichever message you want to forward, slide your finger from left to right, you will see option of delete and forward.

Default Iphone 3g

hi guys,

I recently became a proud owner of a shiny black Iphone 3G. Bought it under Airtel's plan,it cost me an arm and a leg but iphone's desirablilty factor was so high that i had to get it .

here's a short review

Pros:it looks wow just wow, great screen,smoothest UI in touch screen phones,The safari browser must been to be believed yup its that good, call quality is terrific,ipod's rocking,APP store woohoo,push Email, Microsoft exchange,

Cons: Pricey, Battery life okey dokey(The big screen saps its juice out), No bluetooth sharing(i dont miss it much though),no FM and lastly pricey again.

All in all the phone's amazing guys , hats off to Apple ..don't let negative reviews fool you guys. This the phone to possess, everyone wants one and every Cell company wants to make an iphone killer but no one ha one . yet

Cheers

I have used my friends iphone and i really liked the screen. Other than that i don't think there is anything that really impressed me much. GPS was pretty good too.

No offence to any of the owners but i think the cost of iphone should not be more than 20K!

I hear apple is now selling the 3g iPhone with at home activation since last month. Similar to what they did when the iPhone launched, no contract signing at the store. Hence one can simply jailbreak and unlock it.
Anyone got one from the states latley?

My wife's iPhone 3G is now yellowsn0w'ed! Works on the two operators here without the sim-chip.

Now she can swap sims on it herself without asking me for instructions or putting the chip on the wrong way. Thats quite a relief!

You can buy one from Vodaphone in India.

Got one last week, 34.5K for a 16GB, no "contract", and no vodaphone sim was required. Activated at home.

The 8GB was quoted at 31.7K, with a 5K discount on future bills if you are a Vodaphone subscriber.

Just used the Yellowsn0w application on my iphone 3g, it works perfectly fine. Just took 5 mins. Real simple process.

Angry It Crashed

Guys, I have YET another issue - this evening while using an application an error msg popped up (some lack of network bla bla) I thought I'll reboot so I went ahead and tried to put off the phone - it seemed like the 'power off' slider was stuck but nevertheless it shut down.
The phone refuses to come ON now, I tried everything except flinging it on the wall! it felt a bit warm too.

what do i DO ??

restore it via itunes.
Thats the best part of iphone.
It is usually self repairable.
Only you will loose your contacts et all. but try to back it up via itunes to your microsoft office outlook 1st.
