    Do I need professional help?

    Well, the Evo's screen-adhesive, screen capacitive issue makes it a no brainer for me. iPhone 4 it is.

    New iPhone 3GS: Jailbreak Time!

    This is incorrect. First, any 3GS can be jailbroken. More recent releases are limited to what's been called a "tethered" jailbreak. Terrible name for a very simple state of affairs. Mine is "tether-jailbroken." It doesn't require a re-jailbreak or restore when you turn it off or the...

    iPhone Battery Drain after unlock

    no This is incorrect. Winterboard may slow things down a drop. Jailbreaking for other purposes does not in any way.

    3GS getting HOT!

    I disagree that this i normal. Streaming internet radio isn't so CPU-intensive to create a lot of heat. I've only had this problem with GPS-app running in the car, screen on and bluetooth/music simultaneously... while plugged in... I'd take it to Apple and tell 'em its dangerous and ask...

    Does the 3GS support A2DP?

    yes Yes, it does support a2dp but not avrcp. I know because I run audio through my bluetooth car kit and also onto a bluetooth speaker set in my bedroom. The lack of avrcp means you must control the volume, etc via the bluetooth receiver but not the iPhone.

    Oleophobic screen: TOO slippery?

    I must be a greaseball as I find the oleophobic screen more slip-resistant.

    3GS and Last.fm

    If you're serious about music, the iPhone is the only real option. I've run the Nokia E71, the Bold, the Palm Pre. They all have features that beat the iPhone, but as a music lover, this was the only real choice. Last.Fm works well on the iPhone. I have it scrobbling via iTunes on my mac and...

    I don't get it, do any apps stay "open"?

    It is in Cydia and is called 'backgrounder.'. Great app.

    I don't get it, do any apps stay "open"?

    Only mail, ipod, phone and Safari It truly sucks that you cannot continue listening to an internet radio app while using other apps. It is a weakness of the device that cannot be understated, although some here will say it's no big deal. Jailbreaking fixes this with an app called...

    Palm Pre competition? hahahaha

    Well, I owned a Pre and it is a fantastic phone; in many ways comparable to the 3gS and in some ways better. If Palm offered a decent family plan with the Pre I'd have kept it. You should really have experience with something before you trash it.

    [OLD] How to save 35% on the new iPhone using msn live

    This has worked for me In '08 I used this system to by a pair of Westone headphones; got 35 percent off a $500 order. Worked exactly as described. No strings other than what's disclosed up front.

    Everyone! Sign this PETITION so AT&T will provide better pricing!

    These people are robots. That's worse than fanboys. Stockholm syndrome. Who on earth would "agree" to pay more money for something, given the choice? I am signing.

    Think Twice Before Upgrading from 3G to 3GS

    This article contradicts itself. He writes that AT&T is taking a hard line on its iPhone 3G customers by not selling them the 3GS at subsidized, and then suggests that this has something to do with the risk that they will lose exclusivity on the iPhone. If that were the case, AT&T's incentive...

    What taxes did you pay for the 3GS?

    ...also, your state is not taxing either you or Apple at point of purchase. Apple determines the tax to charge as reimbursement up front for what they will pay the state later. It is very likely (probable) that Apple will not be taxed in the amount they have collected. And I do smell class...

    What taxes did you pay for the 3GS?

    I disagree here. We are paying out less cash but getting less value than those that pay full price. Our reduced value is the two year commitment that those who go unsubsidized are not bound by. We are getting, thereforee, an inferior product but being taxed full price. In any event, sales...
