Iphone - February 23rd 2010, 12:34 AM

Firstly, I did a search before posting this but I could not find anything that answered my questions. So, if this is a repeat sorry

Anyway, in about two weeks I am going to be getting an Iphone. I will be getting the 16gb and I have a few questions.

1) Will 16gb be enough? If I get the right amount of money back from my insurance company (250) I should be able to buy the 16gb. However, is more better? I can put about $100 extra towards my Iphone. But, if 16gb would be good enough I would like to save that money for accessories.

2) What accesories would be good to get with it and how much do they cost? Case and car charger etc. Any other accessories I should get?

3) Here is the main question. ATT requires certain things for the phone to work and I was wondering what those things were. I heard that they just require Data plan (which I already have for my phone). So, I was wondering if they require more.

My current cell has:

Unlimited texting
Family plan 850 mins w/ rollover
and some other stuff

Would I have to add anything for my iphone?

4) What are some good Apps (preferably free)?

5) Is there anything else you can tell me? Or what not?

EDIT: Do any of you know when apple is going to come out with a new Iphone? The thing is, if it is going to be coming out soon maybe I will just wait to get the Iphone till then.

Thanks,

Jenna

1) Will 16gb be enough? If I get the right amount of money back from my insurance company (250) I should be able to buy the 16gb. However, is more better? I can put about $100 extra towards my Iphone. But, if 16gb would be good enough I would like to save that money for accessories.
I think 16gb would definately be enough, unless you plan on putting LOADS of music on your phone. At the moment I'm using an 8gb iPhone and put a small amount of music on there, and I have a fair few apps and other things on there, and there's still over half the 8gb not used. So 16gb should be fine.

2) What accesories would be good to get with it and how much do they cost? Case and car charger etc. Any other accessories I should get?
The only accessory I would definately recommend would be a case and maybe a screen protector (which might come with a case). This is only because iPhones seem rather delicate, and could use the extra bit of protection from a plastic or rubber case, but it's up to you. Any other accessories would depend on how you would use the phone. If you're out of the house a lot, a car charger would be handy. But there's nothing you would need, as such. I survive with just a protective case.

3) Here is the main question. ATT requires certain things for the phone to work and I was wondering what those things were. I heard that they just require Data plan (which I already have for my phone). So, I was wondering if they require more.
I don't think I could help as much with this question because I assume this is an American network, and I would suppose they work different than British ones. But over here, the iPhone has it's own plans compared to the ones you can get with any other phone. So you need to start a new contract for the iPhone with it's own plan details. But you'd have to check with your phone company for the details.
My current cell has:

Unlimited texting
Family plan 850 mins w/ rollover
and some other stuff

Would I have to add anything for my iphone?

4) What are some good Apps (preferably free)?
With Apps, I would just recommend waiting until you get the iPhone and have a long browse through the App Store. There are thousands of free Apps available and with a 16gb iPhone you could have loads! You just need to explore.

5) Is there anything else you can tell me? Or what not?
I don't think there's much else that you would need to know. But if you have any questions about the iPhone, or anything else. Feel free to PM me

EDIT: Do any of you know when apple is going to come out with a new Iphone? The thing is, if it is going to be coming out soon maybe I will just wait to get the Iphone till then.
*This could just be a rumor, but I think there could be a new iPhone being developed. But I don't know any details about it really. But if you want an iPhone just get the one that's out now. It's definately worth it!

Take Care!!
