  1.  Great Value

    Posted: 

    I bought this to charge my Iphone 4G, and use my Iphone as an internet radio.
    I am impressed with the sound quality and volume.
    I have only two minor issues with the unit.
    When you disconnect with the speakers powered,
    (there is a standby mode to charge your ipod/iphone) it can make my iphone's volume control jam on maximum. You have to restart your iphone, so turn the speakers off first.
    Secondly, the speakers take AAA batteries, not AA as advertised.

    Overall, good purchase.

  2.  What a Bargain !!

    Posted: 

    To be honest, the only reason that I bought this is because of the docking station. I was able to set the unit up in minutes. Had a little problem registering the unit.
    Tip, You go to the wifiradio website, you enter a code that you get from the menu of the radio, your email address and a password. If you dont do this quickly enough the code on the radio resets and you have repeat the process. Make sure you put in your email address and password first.
    Once you do this you have access to a really easy facility for setting up your favorite radio stations ( it can be a bit of a pain weeding through 11,000 radio stations without this).
    The sound from the IBLIK is reasonable. However, the RCA line-out turns it into an exellent HiFi WiFi seperate.
    Brilliant !

    Update.
    I found out that I could use the new Ipod touch for Internet radio, so I replaced my old classic for the touch. There is no docking adapter that fits the touch supplied with the radio. You have to stick the white adapter supplied with the Ipod in the black radio.
    Not Pretty !

  3.  Take the good with the bad

    Posted: 

    I have had this phone for about a month now, and its far from perfect.
    First the bad points, the strap has to be shortened at a jewelers,the radio is worthless, the strap has semi solid sides which means the watch forms a square on the wrist, and the USB charger exploded and killed the free bluetooth headset.

    This phone has good points too. because the battery life is limited, you are supplied with two batteries. There are (were in my case) a set of bluetooth stereo headphones supplied, and with a bit of headscatching you can stream music from the phone courtesy of the one gig card that is also supplied. Also because this is on your wrist, you will never need another ring tone, just vibrate.

    Summary, its had its ups and downs but I've kept it and I sticking with it.
