My third iPhone

Got my new iPhone 4S today - it's my third iPhone! I have been looking forward to this for some time. On 22nd September 2008, I got my first one - a freebie from O2 (and of course I blogged about that here).

I'm looking forward also to use the new features - particularly SIRI. My first effort was to try to write a text message by voice - I said "Text Message" and it played "Across the Universe" by The Beatles. Cool, but wrong! I then tried "Hey Jude" and it started Facetime with my home land line. Next I tried "Reminder - 10 o'clock, John" and it dialled my wife's niece Emma! Either this is a piece of crap or it doesn't understand a Carnew native? Work to do.

It is also a lot faster than the old iPhone 3GS that I have had for the last two years - I'm certain that Solitaire was a lot quicker.

Not much bother setting it up, but it was a bit of a drag waiting 15 minute to get through to O2 to activate the new SIM card that came with the new phone. Should have an on-line option to activate.
