    iPhone 3G getting hot on back?

    Not even sure if it is under warranty but my credit card company doubles all of the manufacturer's warranties on electronic devices to include phones. Stupid question but how do I know if it is under warranty? Was the original 6months, year, 2 years? Thanks Saverino!

    Slingplayer makes debut on iPhone

    Slingplayer makes debut on iPhone

    I would think that ATT would put some sort of restriction or additional "Fee" on this as there would be tons of data flowing across the network. I would hope not but I would not rule this out.

    How long for App store reviews to show up?

    KRAPPS, It recognizes that I have submitted the review. I have been doing so under iTunes and not via the iPhone. I was unaware that you could submit reviews via the iPhone. Would you mind telling me how to do so via the iPhone? Thanks!

    Going away on Vacation...

    Sim card removal is the sure bet! You can also place the phone in "airplane mode" by goint to settings and enabling "airplane mode". You can also go tot Settings --->General---->Network---->Data Roaming...make sure that is off. Hope that helps!:smile:
