    Will Apple store swap 3G with horrible 3G problems ?

    I bought my white 3g on launch day. I have never been able to talk in 3g mode for more than five minutes without having severe dropouts. Love the phone other than that. Just wondering if Apple would do a swap out at the store ? Have heard conflicting information on this. I do realize that a...

    With 1.1.1 going down, What will Apple do to make people upgrade again

    With an easy to use (and documented) 1.1.1 jailbrake procedure seemingly just around the corner, it looks like Apple will have to patch things up and release some new features to give people a reason to upgrade from 1.1.1. To me, this is one of the best things (besides the obvious) about the...

    How much do you want cut and paste ?

    Given that there has been so much discussion surrounding the need for cut and paste on the iPhone, I wanted to get a feel for what percentage of people really miss this functionality.

    Why does everyone want cut and paste so badly?

    I just have to ask. Why does everyone want cut and paste so badly ? No offense implied, I just don't get it. The only time I wanted it was during the first five minutes after I got my iPhone home and it would have been nice to go to a webpage through Edge and cut and paste my very long WPA...

    If the iPod touch has Bluetooth, the iPhone will certainly get A2DP

    There are many rumors floating around today that the Ipod Touch may have bluetooth. It's very speculative, and only time will tell. Anyway, I don't care if people think the pictures of the touch didn't have the bluetooth icon, as that is quite meaningless, it may have just been turned off...

    I setup my iPhone to automatically shutdown every night to save battery life

    Last night I had a thought that it would be nice to have my iPhone turn itself off at the same time every night in order to save battery life. I have written a command line program that can be used to shutdown or reboot your iPhone, and included some instructions that show how to setup the...

    Any way to make the iPhone music library recognize manually transferred music ?

    Since the iPhone doesn't yet sync over WIFI, I have tested just manually copying some MP3s over to the iPhone. This works really well using MacFusion under OSX with an sftp server running on the iPhone. Of course, because of the strange way in which the iPhone organizes its music in the file...

    SSH + MacFusion works great = iPhone as mounted disk under OSX

    After hacking my iPhone and enabling an ssh server with sftp access, I just got the idea to use MacFusion to allow for direct access to my iPhone from my Mac. If your not familiar with MacFusion, basically it lets you map sftp servers, and have them appear on your Mac just as if they were...

    Switch back to inidvidual plan within 14 days

    When my wife bought her iPhone, we switched my AT&T account over to a family plan with her phone as the second line. If she returns her iPhone within the first 14 days I assume that I can switch back to an individual plan. Is this true ? Thanks

    Yahoo mail is junk, even outside of the iPhone

    I have spent the last two hours using multiple new yahoo email accounts, and testing a lot using both their web interface, and my iPhone. The push email works great, just a few seconds and it's in my iPhone. But, I can't send from my iPhone using yahoo email. So, I tried just sending from...

    Best clear protection in my opinion

    OK, I have had my iPhone for almost two weeks now and am now happy with the protection system that I have on it. For me, the best things to do was: 1) Bestskinsever.com for the total protection (back and sides), but I didn't use their front cover, as it was way to visible. 2) Boxwave for the...

    Wow, Amazing call quality with iPhone earbuds

    I just finished an hour long conference call on my iPhone. I decided to give the earbuds a try with the built-in microphone. All I can say is "wow". The call quality and volume was absolutely amazing. I have also been on the other end of calls from an iPhone with the earbuds and can say that...

    Helo, I'm a Zune, and I'm an iPhone ...

    How about this for an add ... Hello, I'm a zune (looking like a dork, and jamming out to his Zune), and I'm an iPhone. Nice, what all can you do on that Zune ... As he is talking about useless things, the cell phone in his pocket rings. He then fumbles around trying to get it out of his...

    If I were Mr. Jobs ...

    I love my iPhone. The things that it does, it simply does so much better than everything else that I have almost forgotten about some of the things my prior phone (a Nokia e61i) could do that the iPhone cannot. In my opinion Apple has done an outstanding job delivering basic functionality in...
