    Ok guys ( my first help request)

    I happened to be out of town (in San Francisco) and didn't have the receipt. The guy at the Genius Bar didn't even ask for the receipt. He just looked at the serial number of the phone and looked up the registration info. I walked out with a new AC power converter, under the warranty.

    Ok guys ( my first help request)

    It is still an Apple product. The will fix it. I bought two iPhones from AT&T, had problems with the AC wall adapter. They took care of it on warranty.

    Is the iPhone (1st gen) worth getting?

    Play with one, and you will buy it Like you, I have heard a lot of complaint about what the iPhone can't do. If you go to AT&T or an Apple Store and play around with one, you will see what it does, and likely be impressed. The thing that impressed me was the phone itself. IT beats the...

    Custom Ringtones without Jailbreaking WORKS with the new 1.1.2 Firmware Update!

    Tell me your secret! I have followed the instructions, but cant get the new ringtone to show in the ringtone section of iTunes. (I have a Mac G5, with the latest versions of both iTunes and the phone firmware.) Never mind, I have it working now. Thanks anyway.

    new unusual ringtone thing happening

    I recently purchased a few ringtones from Apple. I set the main default ring to one of these, and then tried to set one of the standard tones (Old Phone) for a specific contact. The ringtone I set for the contact always reverts to the default ringtone. Any ideas for a solution?

    Is there a directory of all "Everything Apple" forums?

    It is a little late to chime in, but I just read your thread. I have an Apple TV due to be delivered today. This is what my wife and I used our refund credits for from our iPhones. I do not plan on purchasing a lot of movies and shows from iTunes. Like you and others, we have a ton of DVDs...

    Edge question, and service question

    Concerning your question about speed, it is a little slow on the phone, but it is acceptable. WiFi is much faster. But then again, I purchased the iPhone for the phone and not the internet features. About the charges on your bill, I found it was simply a $20 increase in my monthly charges...

    Can I sync iPhone across platforms?

    I sync the majority of the info at home on my Mac, and sync just the Outlook calendar on my PC at work. It works just fine. The only problem I ran into was when my wife and I tried syncing the outlook info from both of our phones to the calendar on the Mac. It was just too much info to juggle...

    Restore Error 1604 (anyone?)

    Mine did that also. The only thing I did was tell iTunes to restore again, and the second time it took. I think I also read in another post that somebody recemmeded shutting down iTunes, and maybe restarting the computer, and then trying it agin. Good luck.

    What is RIGHT with the iPhone

    This is the best phone I have ever owned. I bought a Razr two years ago, and as Motorola improved the operating system, there was no way to update my phone. There are a few features I would like the iPhone to have, like a program that would give me the winning Powerball numbers for any given...

    Total Monthly Charge

    I'm a police officer, and had the city/government discount also. Gave it up for the iPhone, with no regrets. AT&T was pretty straight forward when they said no other discounts apply. I have the family plan with two iPhones, my total bill is right at $116 a month. It went up from an average...

    It's not a phone!

    My wife and I bought the iPhone first... because it is a phone. And in the two months we have been very pleased with them as phones. Whe we made the purchase, I honestly didn't think we would use the other "computer" stuff as much as we have. It has seemed every day we come up with more uses...

    One thing that increases battery life.....

    If you turn off the auto-brightness feature, that will also help with power usage. you will find that control in settings under brightness.

    Quite Possibly the Most Annoying Video Ever

    I can't believe I watch the whole thing. I sat here wondering what is wrong with him, then it hit me, "what the hell am I doing still watching this?!"
