Ok, I just got my iPhone. Its awesome. I love it.


1. Sometimes, I'll be playing a song in the background while Im looking at Maps or something. And then out of nowhere, it stops my song and goes to the home screen. Why?


2. How dangerous is it to mod your iPhone to get custom bgs, ringtones, and graphics? How likely are you to brick your iPhone? And is their any news of a service for iPhones to get ringtones without hacking the damn thing?



thanks for any help. I don't know for sure if this is in the right place or not, so don't flame.



Oh, and one final question. I have an email at sbcglobal.net


I thought that was basically yahoo, but it wont let me change the extension to sbcglobal.net when I choose yahoo....


so how do I set up my email? If Im confusing you, Im saying I sign in to my email here: https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.partner=sbc&.done=http://att.yahoo.com/

and my extension is sbcglobal.net

1. This happens when multitasking with processor intensive application like the ipod and google maps.

2. The success of the mod programs like jailbreak and others has been good. I personally have not read a post of anyone bricking their iPhone.
No word on ringtones from aplle yet.

3. Set up your sbc as a pop3 account on you iPhone. The sbc pop settings are pop.att.yahoo.com and smtp.att.yahoo.com.

Good Luck! Enjoy your iPhone.

1. It's a bug. Newer updates make this happen less often. Which update are you using?

2. It's not dangerous at all. If you mess up, all you have to do is a restore and you're back at square one. Then you can just sync all your music, contacts, pictures, etc. back on. As far as ringtones, you can use iPhoneRingToneMaker to put on ringtones without hacking. You get three ringtones for free and then you need to buy it for $10. If you do decide to mod it, however, you can put on ringtones for free using iBrickr or Song Sender software.

I used to be scared about modding but I finally did it the other night and it has been awesome. All the new software is really fun, especially the Nintendo one. It will take you an hour or so to do it for the first time, but it really isn't confusing or anything. If you want to get started, click here if you have a Mac, or here if you have a PC.

3. I would suggest not using the Yahoo button when adding an account and just select "Other". Then just put in all the information accordingly and see if it works.
