    What you may not know about AT&T 3G...

    Now that I've had a HSDPA capable handset on AT&T for over a week I can tell you 3G isn't the savior it's made out to be...here is why: - 3G coverage is excellent where I live but sometimes my phone will still drop down to EDGE/GPRS and there's no way to bring it back to 3G manually. Based on...

    Found! Coolest app that Apple/AT&T would never allow on iPhone

    So I had an iPhone for a year and I didn't know this type even existed nor do I think Apple/AT&T would ever allow something like this on the iPhone 3G but for me this has to be one of the coolest apps ever - AND IT'S FREE! It's called JoikuSpot Light and it's for the Symbian 60 (S60) OS. I just...

    SIMple explanation of in-store activation

    People are getting confused as to the whole in-store activation so here's my take and I'm pretty sure it's accurate: Whether you activate at AT&T or Apple store they will be using iTunes to activate the phone. Maybe a special version but still itunes-like. The whole purpose of activating...

    List of things that Apple missed BIG TIME! MAJOR disappointment

    I was looking forward to this as everyone else but am incredibly disappointed with the outcome for the following reasons: - No voice dialing yet STILL -> really important for driving among other things. Most free phones have had it for years - No MMS -> Was never a big deal for me on iPhone v1...

    iTunes WiFi Store - Songs don't downloading properly?

    I have a 1.1.1 iPhone that is jailbreaked and working perfectly except I noticed that if I try to buy a song in iTunes WiFi it asks me for my password, then drops it into the download icon and I can see it actually download the entire song. However, it then pauses for a while on 'Finishing'...

    Next iPhone update (v1.1.1) just adds WiFi iTunes

    Based on a hands-on of an iPhone running it in UK for the O2 launch.. http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/18/hands-on-with-the-o2-iphone/ No other apps, and a few tweaks like the double tap home-button. What a load of crap. I'm getting tired of waiting for Apple to add something major like chat...

    What are real reasons to mod?

    I've been holding off modding my iPhone because nothing that is capable by modding it has appealed to me but maybe I'm missing something? - Themes -> I'm happy with the built in theme so nothing there - Ringtones -> Happy with the builtin ringtones for now as well - Apps -> Only things that...

    Secret to increasing iPhone stability?

    This may or may not work for anyone except me but over the last week I've been conducting some personal tests of my iPhones stability when doing certain things. All of these tests were done after a power cycle so they should be valid. Basically I noticed sometimes my iPhone would be rock solid...

    No custom ringtones actually might be a good thing for me

    On my previous BB Pearl I had all kinds of custom ringtones, MP3s, etc. Since I can't do that easily with the iPhone (I know about iPhoneRingtoneMaker) I've been just using what's on the iPhone. Surprisingly to me after a few weeks of use I'm actually liking being limited to these chosen...
