    attach a piece of scotch tape to your SIM card

    One problem with using tape is that if you take it off again, the contacts will now be used to being pressed much more firmly and they'll no longer make good contact with the sim. I just opened up my sim card tray (zing! shot across the desk) and cleaned the contacts on my sim and blew out...

    I accidently cleared a SMS conversation...

    Interesting iPhone problem today

    I had that exact problem a few weeks ago. I fixed it by plugging in and unplugging my headphone cord a few times to disloge whatever was causing it to not work. I had a different problem yesterday... my headphones were plugged in and sound continued from the phone's earpiece instead. I had...
