Users say of iPhone Bluetooth:
Fred says, "BTW – Even thought the iPhone supports Hands-Free Profile,
it appears it does not do a great job with it. I’ve been using my iPhone
with my car’s hands-free capability and the voice quality is so bad I
can’t use it to make/receive calls. The two other phones I use with my
car work fine."

"What are you trying to tell me I cannot send pictures or music from my
nokia e65 to my iPhone? If so that’s really quite bad. Can someone
please help. All my iPhone does is says it’s searchn for devises but
nothing seems to happen. I don’t know y iPhone does this as this feature
will just put people off buying stuff from iTunes."
"I cant believe I bought an iphone…its utter crap
receieve photos/music/anything from other phones
forward text messages
export contacts from iphone to sim
no video recorder
transfer songs from my music folder on my pc to iphone
has a crap text predictor
I should have stuck with my nokia"
Usenet isn't big enough to include the rest.....
Things don't look that good in iPhone Paradise....
Great information on tethering this puppy is on:
from Canada where Rogers has partial, limited tethering turned on.
I'm still looking for a PAN enabled iPhone in Charleston so I can test
its other PAN capabilities, like file/picture/music sharing with my
Linux tablet. Don't see how that's going to work without a protocol
iPhone doesn't support like OPP, FTP, etc., but we'll at least look.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to drop by your car, fire up the monster
notebook, move stuff off and on iphone at will, in a parking lot without
gobbling up your 5GB/month network limit.
Noone will be safe until the last lawyer has been strangled by the
entrails of the last cleric.
