"The battery life doesn't really bother me much because i work ALL DAY and can't mess around with my phone ALL THE TIME."
hahaha! this is what im sayin, br0! 0f c0urse ur ph0ne is 0nly g0nna dr0p a few bars since ur n0t using it ALL DAY!!! DUH!
betcha ur ph0ne w0nt even last 'til 9pm 0nce u start playin wit it! l0l.
yep! s0ld my iPh0ne, unf0rtunately... :( but u see, imma cellph0ne junkie wh0 changes ph0nes EVERY M0NTH(sumtimes even S00NER) as s00n as i get b0red wit it!!! ive had my iPh0ne fer a g00d 3 M0NTHS w/c is the L0NGEST ive stuck wit any cellph0ne f0r A WHILE w/c pretty much says al0t abt h0w my iPh0ne has served me well, really! ^_^
played ar0und wit my N95-2 fer abt 2 weeks(0n/0ff) bef0re i g0t B0RED wit it! l0l.
wut u d0in t0 ur ph0ne, br0??? l0l. i never really n0ticed the "edge" c0nnection 0f my iPh0ne when i was c0nnected t0 my h0me wifi netw0rk bef0re cuz my d/l's have always been sm00th & easy... ^_^
try deleting the wifi c0nnection ur currently using 0n ur ph0ne & start fresh! when i had my iPh0ne, all i had t0 d0 was pr0vide my "wep key" t0 the wifi settings and thats it! easy d/l's! sh0uld w0rk fer u, t00!
ohoh, thx alot rock for the info!!
now i understand more about the terms being used on all websites :P
then given that the info on the website about downgrading 1.1.2 to 1.1.1 is correct. i can just buy the 550usd iphone 1.1.2 and downgrade the firmware and baseband myself. that would save me 200usd :D
but would it be silly, if i let them cut my working sim in order to use it as a turbosim and which later i will do the anySIM unlock myself. then ill have to ask my provider for a brand new sim?
again thx for the replies!!
last 0ne. i guess u can buy that $560 iPh0ne w/ turb0 and save urself $200!!! since its v.112, u d0nt need t0 d0wn then upgrade it back cuz its already v.112!
i dunn0 y 112 is taking s0ooo l0oong t0 be s/w unl0cked when it 0nly t00k v.111 abt 2 weeks(iirc) t0 be hacked after it was avail(iPh0nes were v.102 previ0usly). apple did a DAMN g00d j0b making 112's un"hackable" s0 far... l0l.
h0pe that answered ur q's. if u have m0re just p0st up 0r if u wanna pm me just d0 s0(same s/n).
sa60 pretty much explained everything but i just wanna add a little sumthing t0 what he said...
hacking is pretty much ANY type 0f m0dificati0n d0ne on ANYTHING esp. electr0nic devices! 0n the iPh0ne it c0uld be unl0cking/jailbreak etc...
unl0cking(iPh0ne) will let it accept ANY simcard by itself n0 m0ds needed 0n the simcard.
jailbreaking "0pens" up the iPh0ne t0 ALL 3rd party s0ftware(freeware) 0ut there!!! st0ck iPh0nes can 0nly add "0fficial" appz as they are released by apple(m0re m0ney f0r them).
BRICK/"bricked" means that ur iPh0ne is just that. a BRICK cuz u messed up 0n unl0cking it s0mewhere al0ng the way.
turb0sim/stealthsim/etc. is s0mething u attach t0 a simcard(iirc u have t0 cut ur sim up t00) that "n0rmally" isnt c0mpatible wit the iPh0ne t0 make it w0rk!
oo0ps! sorry b0ut that! i was just g0nna post up but then i g0t caught up in sumthing! l0l. anywh0, my reps r c0ming up next...
H0LY CR@P!!! m0difying my wing is s0oo much fun!!! been flashing diff R0MS on my device n0w fer a c0uple 0f days just cust0mizn d HELL 0utta it!!!
seems that iv been missin 0n s0me 0f the discussi0ns g0ing 0n here let me take a break fr0m "flashing" f0r a while & p0st up my .02 cents! l0l.
Hey rock i saw you on the n95 site. I leave for work at 6:15 in the morning and finish at 4:30 to come home, but i can enjoy my phone's feature's during the day with wi fi music and gps and still be okay by the time i get home. Down maybe a couple of bar's! The battery life doesn't really bother me much because i work all day and can't mess around with my phone all the time.
Rock. How could i not be impressed. Still waiting to see what the rest of the spec's are. Even nokia could lose some sale's to this phone. Like everything else it cost money and it has to fit into my budget, but i would still keep my n95 especially since i have the new software 20.0.015 , it's great. Hey rock i was reading that you sold your iphone, why , i thought you liked it alot!
i see ur s00oo impressed wit this ph0ne! s0 i take it ur g0nna buy 0ne, yes??? ^_^
It's also 3g with HSDPA. Garmin Nuvifone. This will force apple to come out with a much better iphone or apple can kiss their sale's goodbye! Check it out people on gsm main screen or google Garmin Nuvifone to find out even more information.
Look out apple and step aside cause here come's the Garmin Nuvifone. It look's awesome! GPS and cell phone with a camera and video recording and web browsing maybe it's wifi! Also mp3 player! When this hit's the market it will be a BIG seller!!!!!!!!
its a ultimate crash...carziest phone i have eer seen.wht do ppl see in this ....oh my god such a waste of money.this phone hangs,is slow and just not worth it.apple pls dont try to imitate............
is a great mobile, but with the tools and interface is very hard to use when transfer information like mp3, the touch screen is wonderfull, id like to purchase one but is very expensive
yesterday i downloaded GBs of software from my fone connected with my pc via wifi. that was my first connection. i had to initially put a PW for getting into it. today i can see that my fone is connected via wifi, but unable to connect with the host. i tried all out but failed. fone is , downloaded vis EDGE, no prob. in the netwk page of the fone, i can see the password (PW) icon, but no way to open n put the icon. any suggestion.
Meaning of hacking
A Hack is usually a technique used to subvert, misuse or subtly change a program, gadget or mechanism in such a way as to change, or add to, its functionality.
Hack has several meanings in the technology and computer science fields: a clever or quick fix to a computer program problem; a clumsy or inelegant solution to a problem; or a modification of a program or device to give the user access to features that were otherwise unavailable to them.
I hated this cell when it first came out because I was such a huge Nokia fan. I'm starting to see the appeal of this and I will get my iphone in a few days. Its build quality is much better than my N95.
For a company to build a phone this good for the first time the second phone will blow everything away.
The Turbo SIM (also known as TurboSIM) was introduced in December 1, 2004 by BLADOX, located in Prague, Czech Republic. It is a very thin device with a 9mm by 9mm eeprom mounted in the top right corner. It has the makers name BLADOX in gold letters on its black PCB. It is pressed on top of a normal SIM card (with some plastic cut off) in such a way that it is still small enough to be inserted into the SIM card slot of any GSM phone. Without the product, the SIM card is still usable as before. The Turbo SIM works with any GSM mobile phone produced since 1998, adding in new functionality like larger SMS archives.
The Turbo SIM also has the ability to unlock the iPhone, allowing the usage of other mobile operators other than AT&T or O2 etc. in the iPhone. This can be done as the Turbo SIM tricks the iPhone into believing that it is operating on the original carriers network even though it is connected natively (not in roaming mode) on another mobile operator. It does this by copying the IMSI and ICCID number of the original SIM shipped with the iPhone be it AT&T, O2, etc. so when the iPhone asks for the original SIM's ID, Turbo SIM gives it them instead of the the iD of the SIM currently in the tray. This means that the iPhone can update the latest firmware from Apple's server.
