Bluetooth Keyboard/iPhone 3G/4.1

Hello,

I have iPhone 3G with iOS 4.1 (Jailbreaked). I have this crazy project which to make test run requires compiling and etc for day or two. And the problem is that it might break in the process. Because I don't wanna spend the whole day sitting in front of computer. I would like to get folding or rubber bluetooth keyboard, maybe with docking, maybe not. It would allow me to get into terminal do some changes/fixes.

What are the options? As I understand where might be a problem because of iPhone 3G?

-david

you don't need to jailbreak to use bluetooth keyboards, the iPhone does this natively with 4.0

you can use any bluetooth keyboard ( i tested the apple one and a logitech one and they both worked well )

you do need to JB if you want to use the Iphone with a bluetooth mouse

3GS yes but the 3G doesn't support Bluetooth keyboards in iOS 4.

well download the bluetooth stack for keyboards

it might be $5 on cydia, but it will do what you need it to do
