How come the BBC were so taken in that they ran PR messages masquerading as hard news on main TV bulletins?

No one turned up for the 'event'. click here

I think it also allows you to "visually" fast forward and rewind through voicemail messages:

That's not the way to behave in the forum - many people will buy an iPhone, and have many reasons for doing so, there's nothing 'daft' about owning one at all.

running at the moment. That should boost the November/December sales figures - the iPhone looks good on the screen.

They do look very good, and in the flesh too. I can think of lots of reasons for owning one - let's not forget mobile phones are effectively fashion statements for a lot of people and the iPhone certainly has a "wow, what's that you've got" factor.

I was in the local shopping mall when this launched. Carphone closed for about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to launch it. Outside there was a queue of exactly 3 people!

At the same time the mall was packed for the arrival of Santa and the Phones4u about 15 Metres away was packed full of customers.

I was not one of those queuing for the iphone. I'll admit I was one of the parents queuing for Santa!

I remember those days, without too much affection.

A grotto that should read "grotty", a Santa who's mouthwash should be done for false pretences, and a rip off price for a bit of tacky plastic.

Have thing improved any?
