welcome on board , the iPhone is an amazing piece of kit.
Congrats! Enjoy it, it is a blast!
Well done theliksta. Glad that your earlier concerns have evaporated. Must be a relief!
Have you tried the web without wi-fi yet?
Sorry, can't help with that one, but how is it going otherwise?
Congrats, but your phone is gonna be bricked by Apple in about 15 minutes.
haha I really dont think apple will brick them.
Hahaha, they won't brick them. But they'll force a restore and you'll be screwed.
So either way... probably a terrible decision to do this unlock right now when the update that is said to break it is coming in less than 3 days.
How can they force a restore?
With the new firmware.
If you had a hacked phone when firmware 1.0.2 came out, it made you restore.
And your point is? New firmware doesn't have to be installed; hell, I left my nano at 1.0.1 when 1.1.3 had been out for about three months. All the OP has to do is wait until the next iPhone firmware's been hacked before installing.
When you say "made you restore" does that mean you can't connect the phone to iTunes without preforming the update?
How do you cope without MMS or reasonable data rates on the move? Where i live there's hardly any public wifi points so the iphone is totally unusable to me.
i'll stick to getting the Nokia N95 Black with over the air music store
What are you talking about? Doing the unlock BEFORE the new firmware (1.1.1) is out is the right thing to do. The unlock uses an exploit in 1.0.2 to be able to update the baseband, with 1.1.1 this exploit will be closed. So you won't be able to unlock the phone for god knows how long, until the dev team finds a new exploit.
How do you know it the right thing to do? for all you know installing the new update on a unlocked phone corrupts the firmware and make the phone useless.
Problem I have with the Nokia N95 is apart from imo ugly design it has a rather small 2.6 inch screen, which is 35% smaller than the iPhone and doesn't have a full querty keyboard which would make typing a email slow unless your a quick thumbed teenager.
The problem I have with the Nokia N95 is the shockingly bad battery life. They claim 1 day standby and 2 hours talk time.
Going off past experience that means carrying a charger around with you constantly or having a spare battery.
That combined with the small screen, tiny keyboard, large size and fugly looks really just don't do it for me.
That i didn't know, is that 2 hours talk time with bluetooth on at the same time?
Ethier way its extremely poor.
I would imagine that is with Bluetooth off.
Interesting. The figures I quoted earlier are from Orange. Nokia themselves claim a longer life.
* Battery: Nokia Battery (BL-5F) 950mAH
* Talk time: up to 160min (WCDMA), up to 240 min (GSM)*
* Stand-by time: up to 200 hours (WCDMA), up to 225 hours (GSM)
* Operation times may vary depending on radio access technology used, operator network configuration and usage.
That means talk time of 2 hours 40 mins on 3G or 4 hours on 2G and standby of 8 or 9 days.
That is a massive discrepancy between Orange and Nokia.
Considering I use a bluetooth headset that would make the N95 almost unusable for me as a everyday phone.
Of coarse I heard that the iPhone which has iPod functionality doesn't support Stereo Bluetooth which if true just seems crazy, Not enough to put me off it but irritating none the less.
I've given up trying to get YouTube to work now matter which hack i try i never get anywhere.
Looks like the info on the Orange website is either wrong or they have done their own testing. T-Mobile, O2 and Vodafone all more or less agree with Nokia's figures.
Having used Nokia phones in the past i wouldn't go with there figures lol
Anyone with a N95 who has tested the talk time ?
Go to the hackint0sh iPhone forum and find the famous 3-youtube-files thread. You will need to replace the files in your lockdown/ with them, and edit an additional file in activation_records/.
