I'm sure I saw "sim Applications" on a US iphone... does any one know what they might be?
Just like the powerbook G5 was confirmed.
I think they are just posting about the iphone to increase hits to their site. They have nothing new to say.
I already have SIM applications on my 1.1.1 iPhone.
Settings > Phone > SIM Applications.
Yeh me too.
Nothing to see here.... move along...
People throw the term 'brick' around far too loosely these days.. Brick == Only useful as a brick, or in technical terms nothing is going to revive it short of JTAG.
Apple firmware updates deactivate phones, they don't brick them... the OS is still running just fine. Depending on how you unlocked maybe even the SIM still works - all that's required is to figure out the activation.
Interesting. I have 1.1.1 as well, it only has Setting>phone>SIM pin. What's in the SIM applications menu?
I can also access SIM applications on my unlocked iPhone. SIM apps are services your telecom provider adds to give you access to different types of information which you tend to receive by SMS. Of course the more services you use, the more SMSes you send and the more money they earn. Something like that...
SIM Applications comes from the SIM. It's a bunch of builtin menus that enable stuff... generally it's texts for news headlines, jokes and stuff. It's a *really* old system - predates smartphones etc. - it was designed to add features to phones that had little memory or processor, back in the day when even WAP was very expensive.
Each of these goes to a submenu eg.
Services&Help goes to:
Reverse Charge Call
When you get to the end of the menu tree it sends a text.
'Voda Stores' literally just sent me the following
"U R Nr Pendleton Stn Nrby Vodafone Shops"
And a list of shops.
As you can see due to the text limits of SMS it's kinda wierd..
It's under it. Only some networks have it. You on PAYG by any chance?
Maybe that's why, the menu changes depends on your plan? I am on a two year contract with AT&T.
