I remember the days when mobile phones didn't even exist.

What a poor response from Apple to its competitors. I have just cancelled my intention to get and her indoors is thinking the same. I think I will wait for the Nokia to come out as it has features I like as well as fitting in the hand so well.

I currently have an iPhone 4 and I cannot say it was a good purchase as the iPhone 3 is a much nicer phone to hold. The 4G seems to be turning into a bit of a fiasco with not only someone getting an advantage but the iPhone seemingly not able to work with the other $G specifications coming along afterwards.

As far ad PCA is concerned the past 24 hours have been pretty horrific as far as getting on and then moving around the site was concerned. This is just happening too often to be doing your reputation any good.

Nontek."I have a protective case on my Galaxy III, it is still just 10mm thick! I was surprised at how easy it is to operate compared to my previous HTC Wildfire - not bad I guess for a 77yr old!"

I mentioned on PCA a few days ago that my son had given me a Galaxy 111. In the past I've only used the most basic of mobile phones, but have also found the Galaxy to be very easy to use, mind you at 76 I'm much younger than you. Also there is an App that gives me almost full control of my Canon DSLR, something the Iphone is incapable of, though that may change in the near future.

Matt Egan & FE

The site has been appalling the last 24 hours and is still very very slow. I did find FE's comments rather strange as well as they were quickly followed by Matt's apologising, yet again.

The site has been had many severe problems this year and I know if I was in charge I wouldn't be at all happy at what it is doing to the reputation of what is after all a PC magazine where people would I suspect expect better. Perhaps it is a time to be looking at who is doing the work and their competency. Clearly more was happening than just an iPhone launch as we are now inundated with more unwanted boxes appearing at the bottom and tops of our screens. Yes you can click off the bottom one but it only reappears again. Just get it working properly and then leave it alone instead of constantly tinkering and never getting it right.

Wait until you see 4G in action.

I'll start to get excited about 4G once I can get 3G...

Quite a few of you mention the lessening thickness and increasing size in area of new phones.

I got an HTC last year and within a month bought a new normal pocket sized Nokia as I immediately found I didn't want a phone with a big screen that was bulky to carry around in trouser pockets. The Nokia lives in my pocket, the HTC get used as and when I want mobile computing/video access and as a satNav. So for me all the large screen smart phones are too bulky no matter how thin they make them, unless they get so thin they can be rolled up...

I went with the don't care option, as I'm one of those strange people who just use a phone to make and receive phone calls.

As for 4G coverage, by the time it arrives in rural West Somerset, Apple will be releasing the all-singing, all-dancing iPhone 23!

Somewhat underwhelmed ... it's a new 'toy', most of the functions it (and other 'phones') have I don't use. Give me a a full-screen keyboard suitable for my thick fingers, and I might use it more. My main demand is for reliable network coverage everywhere in the UK, which isn't something a handset can make work better, so it's a just 'Mutton done up as Lamb'.

You're not in charge however, and I doubt that you have much idea about what's involved in keeping a free resource like this going, 365 days of the year. Your thoughtless comments about the competency of our development team are offensive, and totally uncalled for.
