    is it possible does anyone know I assume it just checks a plist or something to check what source the net is colin from can this be changed or bypassed so it works on 3g?

    Thanks

    I would love to be able to do this as well, seems such a shame that i can't use my plentiful 3G bandwidth to access the iPlayer, especially as you can on the N96!!

    the BBC iPlayer website (i'm guessing your talking about this) is a website, so it does not use a plist. It more than likely checks a list of IP addresses known to be 3G, EDGE and GSM networks. So its highly unlikely you'll be able to unblock it unless you use some kind of proxy, which is going to be very hard on your iPhone.

    might even be that the iPhone sends a special header during a page request informing the site of what network it's using, so it will be hard to disable it.

    You can't do it on the N96 either. There's a bit of backlash because they're advertising it in such a way that it appears that you can, but it's only Wifi just like the iPhone.

    There's a news item on www.allaboutsymbian.com about it (probably about a week ago if you're looking).
