                              I have been using a Blackberry, but would like to switch to an iPhone soon. I have been waiting for the technology to mature & it seems to be stable now. There is still an issue in the States with the provider (ATT) being the only one and everyone I know with an iPhone complains about problems with their service.

                              Great article! Thanks!

                              Iphone 4 seems to be an awesome machine. But will remain a dream for me πŸ˜‰ With all the features, the cost also has hiked. πŸ˜€

                              1. Vinay Gowda says:

                                Neeraj the cost is affordable πŸ™‚ basic model costs at $199. So you can have one and fulfill your dream πŸ™‚

                                1. jasdeep singh says:

                                  $199 price is with 3 year contract plans only. Without contract and unlocked iPhone 4 will easily burn a hole in your pocket worth $700-$800. The price is still unclear..

                              Vinay, you are awesome in compiling the lists. Compiling 100plus list is not an easy task though IPhone has all these functions. By the way are you using the IPhone? Cuz someone who is not using can't compile such detailed list.

                              1. Vinay Gowda says:

                              Well done with this article – you've done well tl list a full 100 features. The iPhone 4 seems to be a big leap forward over the previous generations, although I don't think Apple had much choice due to the advances with the Android operating system and new handsets from companies like HTC, it's just a shame that they are so expensive. I wouldn't expect networks to give them away for free but the lifetime costs for an iPhone 4 are pretty high. It's also difficult for those that took the 3GS on a two-year contract at launch to upgrade.

                              1. Vinay Gowda says:

                                I seriously accept your point here Chris. The cost of iPhone for lifetime is too high! But it has got very good features.

                                Thanks for sharing your thoughts Chris πŸ™‚

                              Many improvements was made to iPhone 4 in comparison to old models. You show a great list of the most interesting feauters, thanks!

                              Yeah, it's a really great device!
                              But the main problem is in his very expensive price (I mean unlocked one). If they in Apple decrease price at 2 times – they would get thousands of new users for sure! But such a desire is unreal πŸ™

                              The iPhone is no doubt an incredible device, and I hear the iPhone 5 is around the corner, one can only hope that the iPhone 5 will start using the 4G networks by AT&T and Verizon

                              Nice article, Vinay. Great colection of iPhone 4 features. Interesting post. Useful to iPhone user.

                              Hey Vinay,

                              Well the iPhone 4 has been flying along sales wise. For those asking about prices you can now pick them up second hand (used) for around $550- $700 US. Still expensive for some, but worth it depending on your income.

                            21. iPhone 6 says:
