Is an iPhone!!!!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

No Wi-Fi capability, that's a major issue... They naturally have this feature... Here's PROS and CONS...

PROS
1. Touch screen advantage.
2. Easy friendly menus, tools, address book, contacts, web surfing, etc.
3. iPod included (Music & Video Player).
4. Upgradable to OS 4.
5. Stereo headphone with mini-bass capability.
6. SIM Card exchange without opening the unit.
7. Superb digital camera.
8. Slim candy bar jawbreaker design.
9. The 32GB version would hold so much music & videos, that you would not need anything else...

CONS:
1. No manual included. Friendly, but for specific details you need to download from Apple the Electronic Manual.
2. Every time Apple make firmware upgrades they damage something previously working... like your dock compatibility or so.... Be very careful ALWAYS before upgrading firmware... ALWAYS!!!

Great Product by APPLE

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black (China Unicom) Smartphone (No Wi-Fi capability)

The good: The iPhone 3GS finally adds common cell phone features like multimedia messaging, video recording, and voice dialing. It runs faster; its promised battery life is longer; and the multimedia quality continues to shine.

The bad: The iPhone 3GS' call quality shows no improvements and the 3G signal reception remains uneven. We still don't get Flash Lite, USB transfer and storage, or multitasking.

The bottom line: The iPhone 3GS doesn't make the same grand leap that the iPhone 3G made from the first-generation model, but the latest Apple handset is still a compelling upgrade for some users. The iPhone 3GS is faster and we appreciate the new features and extended battery life, but call quality and 3G reception still need improvement.

Purchasing Jailbroken Iphone 3Gs 16GB (IOS 4.0.1)

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black (China Unicom) Smartphone (No Wi-Fi capability)

Iphone 3GS is really a wonderful phone. Can't believe how could it be that much user friendly. many thanks for Steve Jobs. Its amazing. But Im still unable to use it for 100%. I bought a jailbroken one & when Im installing new Apps (pirated), itunes shows an Error code, later I realised that I was required to instal Appsync 4.0 via Cydia. After that problem solved. but I still cannot install some apps. Even I install them to iphone they were not working. It suddenly exits from the screen.But my friends were able to install the same apps to IOS 3.0 via Appsync 3.0. May be Appsync 4.0 not 100% support with IOS 4.0.1. But this issue is not a major issue, Bcs all other apps working really well.
I love my iphone a lot. I brought a brand new iphone & IOS 4.0 is really great. If you are planning to buy a iphone, my advice is do not buy any without IOS 4.0 or any latest version. If you know the jailbreaking process then no problem. But remember not to update it via itunes to a latest version. You will end up with a Locked iphone..! then you have to suffer until hackers release the unlocking software for that latest version.
Good Luck Guys..!

Review For: Apple iPhone 3GS - 16GB - Black (China Unicom) Smartphone (No Wi-Fi capability)

I bought the iPhone 3G 16GB and I found it a very complete and easy phone to use, also provides a very sensitive touch screen and easy operation. The internet access is very fast and smooth sailing. It has a good resolution camera and the storage capacity is enough for me.
