    If you regret buying the 16GB and not the 32GB...

    as I did, Apple will exchange without a restocking fee. This was a pleasant surprise to me. To bump up to the extra space cost me the difference plus tax. If you did buy at AT&T, I believe they will charge a restocking fee. Just posted this for anyone that had to get a 16 but wanted a 32...

    My inCase kills my WiFi signal by almost 500%!

    I downloaded Speedtest in the app store to test out the speed of the 3Gs's radios. I was kind of shocked when the max DL I was getting on wifi was around 1.7Mbps. It was about the same speed as my ATT DL speed on the 3G network. So I fugged around with my router(Apple wireless b/g/N) and made...

    The accelerometer has been tuned.

    Was walking with the S today and noticed the a-meter definitely is less prone to not being able to orient the screen while the phone is in motion. There used to be posts about people's phones that would not turn from landscape to portrait and vice versa. This was usually because they were...

    3GS finally enables headphone volume buttons?

    Looked and didn't see any info on the issue of whether or not the S is going to let you control volume with Apple's in-ear headphones. I love the headphones, they sound great and isolate out background noise very well. Clicking the center button for pause/ff/rw works, but the volume controls...

    I guess the data plan price didn't change?

    Rumors gave way to reality. When I reserved a 3Gs online @ Apple, the data plan was still $30. $20 unlimited texts. I'm still very curious as to whether or not MMS will be tacked on separately in price. And $70 tethering/data plan doesn't seem tooooo bad. It's $20 below Wireless...

    Accelerometer G-force measure?

    I was just wondering since Apple has these physical water sensors to check for liquid damage, if there was anyone who has seen an app that will actually measure the amount of G or -G force applied to the phone. You know, when you drop the phone and it hits a surface and stops, it creates a...

    Does 'Stopwatch' run in the background when you 'home' it?

    I was using the phone a few weeks ago as a stopwatch for running. I felt like using the GPS for a bit to see how accurate it would be on my trail. So I am curious as to whether or not the stopwatch actually runs in the background while in another app? I think so because even in Airplane mode...

    I activated my own 3G. Why'd I get charged the activation fee?

    LOL. I remember on launch day when iTunes' servers went down. I tried to get my phone activated in the store, to no avail. So, I had to take the phone home and connect to iTunes and activate it myself. It took a few tries, but after the hassle, it worked. So my question is. Why on earth did...

    Has 2.0.1 fixed your bugs?

    Like any new FW update, there are claims that it does fix a lot of bugs, then there are claims that it didn't. Looking for a good idea of what everyone here has experienced so far. My phone transitions screen to screen more smoothly. So, for me, yes. I also saw the inevitable "it fixed my...

    Comcast email settings that work for me.

    Just so there is reference to those of you who use Comcast email, here are screenshots of my mail settings to help you out. I am hoping all the servers are set the same so this works in all areas. I am in Miami. If you are having issues with mail, try these settings, with your own account names...

    Anyone use original 3G holder or silicone skin for applying Invisibleshield?

    I want to put on a shield but had such a hard time with another company's similar product that i want to be sure I do it right this time. The problem I had was with the corners. I tried using the cup method and just pinching the corners, but nothing worked. So I am wondering if anyone has had...

    My 3G has stopped GPSing and 3Ging my location

    well. Here is my first glitch/issue with my 3g. I can't get it to find me in any apps like LOOPT or even in maps with gps or triangulation. Off to the Apple store after I did a full restore and reset of all default settings. To top it off went over EVERY menu item to be sure. No luck...

    Triple press the Home button for 3G profile?

    Over the course of the last couple of weeks I've noticed a lot of people wanting to switch between 3G on/off and other power saving tips when they are not using functions of their 3G phones. Currently these users have to navigate about 3 or 4 screens to accomplish these tasks when a simpler...

    If you got or plan to get a 3G iPhone, which one are you?

    Overt the last week I have been surprised by the number of people I've talked to that said they were switching carriers to get the 3G iPhone. Where I work, people that swore up and down they didn't need or want an iPhone over the course of the last year, seemed to have warmed up to it since...

    Are there still people convinced we don't really need user replaceable batteries?

    Do we need a user replaceable battery? I remember before launch there was an "us" and "them" mentality on the forums of people who were for URB's and against URB's. I was for it because I know how easy it is to be caught without an outlet in many places you don't have your car at, and...

    So do we finally get free WiFi at AT&T hotspots with 3G iPhone?

    I ask this because I would like to be able to use WiFi versus 3G when possible "if" 3G really does drain battery life faster. Also, I now have a $600 WiPod sitting around and would love to give it to my niece so she can be one of the "cool kids".:tounge:

    This accessory was not made to work with iPhone...

    Well, I am discovering my first real problem with my phone. No matter what mode I am in, or how my phone is set up, I am getting the constant message, "This accessory was not made to work with iPhone". It asks me below the headline if I want to set the phone to Airline mode. Thing is, there is...

    For those with low speakerphone and earbud volume...

    After updating to 1.1.2 I can truly say I am surprised and satisfied that my barely audible volume levels have been fixed. The first time I realized this was when placing a call with the earbud. I normally have to turn volume up to 100% just to barely be able to use the earbud. But just a few...

    Anyone else still waiting on FREE Leopard update?

    For some reason I could not make my serial number work on Apple's up-to-date Leopard website, so I had to actually fill out and snail mail my update form. I bought my MacBook on October 5 of this year, so I qualified for a free upgrade to Leopard. After trying it out in the Apple store here, I...
