i got my connection alright. working fine. i had to call my ISP to do that
sa60 / r 0 c k
so that mean i can't used the iphone without turbosim?
Rock. I have the advantage. Someone using the iphone for 2hrs staight differant feature's and myself using my n95 differant feature's 2hrs straight. If both phone's get to low i can still use my n95 and walk around you see i picked up a spare battery for 40 buck's, which was a good price. i alway's keep spare one charged but i don't need it all the time. I rotate the battery's from time to time. Back to my point. After the iphone is to low you are tied to a plug with it! Everyone know's you can't change the iphone battery duh!!
Rock. This is what my point was DUH!! Talk for 40 min. on the iphone and watch that battery drop. I'm also a cellphone junkie, but i keep them alot longer than 3 month's. Can't afford to alway's be buying new one's.
Rock. The battery on the iphone is no better if you are on it constantly. Apple didn't make any special advancement's ahead of everyone else in the making of battery's. Don't knock nokia's n95 battery when iphone's isn't any better. Of course it won't get used up quite as fast when most iphone user's don't use gps and with not much volume being produced from the mp3 on the iphone as compared to how loud the n95 music player is. More Volume More battery consumption. No matter what the cell phone no one has battery bragging right's!
haha yes r 0 c k, i get the trick now ;)
ok ill try and find out tonite, hope its really that price with turbo included. and hopefully jailbroken too lol. but doubt that part.
that installer thingy, can be found on the main screen?
anyhow thx so much for the help!! ill let you know later, how it went :P
hahaha! it let u tru wit my "name", huh? l0lz!
anywh0, if ur hk dealer t0ld u it has turb0 already then ur G0LDEN!!! n0 need t0 buy that extra kit by itself!
if u can see the ph0ne bef. buying try t0 l00k/see/ask f0r the "installer" ic0n. thats a SUREFIRE way t0 kn0w if ur iPh0ne is jailbr0ken 0r n0t. intaller gives u access t0 T0NS 0f 3rd party appz STRAIGHT t0 yer ph0ne!!!
0therwise, u'll have t0 jailbreak it urself using the guides u f0und 0n the 'net. its actually quite easy i did it 0n a v.112 iPh0ne myself. ive had abt 9 iPh0nes @ 1 time(d0nt ask)!!! haha!
yer welc0me br0. ^_^
afaik, iPh0nes will be released in sum asian markets but i dun think the philippines is 0ne 0f them! :( iPh0nes HAVE t0 be "tied" t0 a specific carrier ie. at&t(us) t-mobile/v0da(uk). apple w0nt sell just an unl0cked iPh0ne by itself.
ur best is an unl0cked 0ne pr0lly 0n eBay 0r sum internet sites like that!
r 0 c k :)
im buying it from local shops here in hong kong. they said usd560 for 1.1.2 with turbo alrdy.
i hope they didnt mean, that i have to buy an extra turbosim kit myself.... if thats the case, i wont buy it yet... maybe wait few more weeks, till the real s/w unlock is out ^^
i just need a new phone asap. im sick of my old k800i lol, and iphone is really the ONLY phone i like :S... they said it will be officially released here in hong kong during mid and end of this year. i cant wait that long. T.T

where u buyin ur iPh0ne br0 eBay??? see, if ya buy just a reg/st0ck iPh0ne u ALS0 have ta buy d turb0! cant make it w0rk 0therwise. iirc turb0sim's run abt $80 s0 ur already lookin @ $640.
im n0t t00 sure but g00gle "stealth sim" and see if thats cheaper. id d0 it f0r ya if i wasnt t00 lazy!!! l0l.
"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.
