As the title says... any tips on whether it's remotely possible to use an old iPhone 3G as basically a home server box. It sounds stupid at first, but the more I think about it the more sense it makes. My needs are low power, minimal attention needed, and silent. It's primary purpose is purely to act as a torrent downloader. It'd be nice to have a very very basic http server too (to host a few files and thats probably it) that I can access from the internet. I have a 16Gb iphone 3G, where the gsm antenna is damaged but wifi still works. I was previously looking at investing in one of those ARM based Plug PCs, but at around £100 for whats just a toy, I wondered if the 3G would be possible? I figured 16Gb is big enough for my files and the types of torrents I'll be using and then I can simply leave it in the universal dock, unlocked and constantly on. Power consumption must be comparable if not less than a plug pc.
