Hey, I have a 1gen iPhone as well as a 3g one. I have been lending my 1gen one to a buddy, but recently got it back as he upgraded to 3GS. Part of the reason why he wanted a new one was that the 1gen iPhone is very random in the way that sometimes if you call it it will put you straight through to voicemail, sometimes it will not ring, sometimes it will not notify you of new texts and the volume is quite low for notifications. Anyway, all that aside I was thinking about things I can use the old phone for now that it is back to collecting dust, and using it as a home phone came to mind. More specifically, I thought about getting an online number from skype, so I can make and receive international calls cheaper and more easily, but I am not sure whether I would be available once the phone goes in sleep mode? I guess a solution for this would be to turn off sleep mode if this is possible in settings, and always keep it plugged into a charger? Does that seem like a good solution to you guys, or is there a better way for me to achieve what I want? As noted earlier, I would love to find a use for it and I would also love to get a better price and more availability when it comes to international calls. Any opinions? Also, will the problems regarding calls not going through etc in all likelihood continue even though all the calling/signalling would be done over wifi? Cheers. Edit: Thought of another potential problem. I like to be on Skype on my MBP, and would want the iPhone to exclusively be used for calls. I.e I'd like to only be available for chatting on my laptop, and not on my iPhone. Id want to use the phone exclusively for calling. Is that even possible?
