    IPSF unlocked iFones now works with 1.1.2, here's how

    Let’s say you have an iFones that was unlocked with iPhoneSimFree. And let’s say you tried jailbreaking when 1.1.2 came out, but you failed miserably. Well, now you can get that sucka working. Courtesy of Jesus over at the Giz. Read More

  • Stylus for iPhone/iPod touch costs $25, defeats purpose

    Stylus for iPhone/iPod touch costs $25, defeats purpose

    When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPhone, he made his feelings about stylus use pretty clear by saying something to the effect of "Who wants a stylus? Yuck. We’ll use the best pointing device in the world, our fingers." I share an equal disdain for the stylus and I find that even my fat fingers work well enough on my iPod touch. Some people don’t, though. If… Read More

  • Some guy says Apple will launch ultra-portable then makes stuff up about about Android

    Some guy says Apple will launch ultra-portable then makes stuff up about about Android


    Artist’s rendering I love financial analysts. They get “super-secret” news from “super-secret” sources — mostly the same sources we all have — and tell people to buy or sell stocks based on the same hunches we all have. The hunch du jour on Wall Street is that Apple’s stock will go up after the launch of an ultra-portable laptop at MacWorld… Read More

  • AT&T yanks $28 iPhone data-only plan for the deaf

    AT&T yanks $28 iPhone data-only plan for the deaf

    AT&T has reportedly pulled a $27.99-per-month data-only iPhone plan that had previously been offered to the hard of hearing and deaf. I remember seeing a lady with a Sidekick WAY back when they first came out and when I excitedly stopped her to high-five about being Sidekick owners, she replied that she used one because she works with the deaf. The iPhone would tend to be a similarly… Read More

  • Carphone Warehouse not practicing truthiness?

    Carphone Warehouse not practicing truthiness?

    The BBC visited five UK-based Carphone Warehouse stores to see if rumors were true concerning customers being told that if they didn’t buy insurance on their iPhone and they happened to lose it somewhere, it would cost them at least £630 and a whole new contract to replace it. While it’s true that they’d have to buy a new phone, the 18-month contract would not start over. Read More

    AT&T's CEO confirms 3G iFones


    Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s CEO, confirmed yesterday that the 3G iFones will be coming next year, but a specific time line was not revealed. The battery life of 3G handsets today sucks, to say the least, and Apple is aware of this and it’s in their best interest to work those kinds of kinks out before putting a 3G version on the market. I wouldn’t expect this till late… Read More

    Orange announces iFones pricing

    The day of reckoning is upon us. Well, not us, but for the Frenchies it is. Orange has loosed pricing for the iFones that launches tomorrow or is it today? Thursday. With one of four plans offered ranging from 49 euros to 119 euros, Orange customers can purchase the iFones for 399 euros. If you snub any of the offered plans then you’ll have to pay 549 euros and without any… Read More

  • Unlocked iFones from Orange cheaper than T-mo

    Unlocked iFones from Orange cheaper than T-mo

    I’m sorry but an unlocked iPhone is not worth $1,500, which is what T-mo in Germany is selling the precious for. It’d be a lot cheaper to have someone visiting the US pick one up or just find someone on Craigslist to do it for you. But that’s not always the case and luckily for you, Europeans, Orange will be doling out unlocked iFones for less than 999 euros, but more than… Read More

    Breaking: Some third party vendors already have iPhone, iPod Touch SDKs!?

    Hot on the proverbial heels of the news that Apple will use digital signatures to ensure quality and security in the forthcoming iPhone and iPod Touch SDKs, we get word that Apple is leaking pre-release versions of the SDK to certain third party vendors far in advance of the official launch. Electronista gets credit for the scoop, though there’s no word on which companies this might be. Read More

    iPhone and iPod Touch's developers to verify identities with digital signatures

    We know that in the near future, we’ll have real, authentic, genuine third-party app support for iPhone and the iPod Touch. There’s no secret that I’m a fan of the hardware that Apple has developed, and I’m looking forward to the opening of the systems. And it’s looking like Apple will use an ID scheme to keep track of who’s writing what, to ensure quality… Read More

    T-Mobile: for you my friend, a special deal: no-contract iPhone $1,500

    Well, boppers, you can now get your iPhone fix (in the old country, at least) without signing up for that stifling 24-month contract. Of course, it took Vodafone suing them to make it happen, and then there’s the catch: they’re selling it for 999 Euros, or about 1,500 of our Yankee “dollars.” You’ll be able to use other SIM cards, but T-Mobile warns that not all… Read More

  • T-Mobile could be forced to sell iPhone without contract, unlocked in Germany

    T-Mobile could be forced to sell iPhone without contract, unlocked in Germany


    That’s Germany, all right. Like in France, it looks like Apple will have to sell the recently released iPhone in Germany without an accompanying contract and, separately, unlocked. Over in Deutschland, Vodaphone just won the first round in a long line of rulings against T-Mobile, which, for now, is the exclusive carrier of the iPhone there. Vodaphone, which no doubt wants a slice of… Read More

    Pack Your Tinfoil Hat Away, iPhone Now Apparently Doesn't Phone Home…Well Maybe

    Damn, it was a fun conspiracy while it lasted. Despite previous reports (our coverage here) Gizmodo is now quoting a German site Heise Online that claims that the iPhone doesn’t phone home. According to Heise Online the iPhone doesn’t send an IMEI (the phone’s unique identifier) back to base but only application specific, but personally unaware data. I’m not an expert… Read More

    Sniffer confirms: Apple not rotten

    Citizens, it is safe to remove your iPhones from their tin-foil wrappings. The alarm raised by Hackintosh member XianLi that Apple was sending out your International Mobile Equipment Identity with every outgoing transmission turns out to have been nothing but the most base alarmism. Sure, there are graphs and numbers to support his theory, but some intrepid investigator at Heise.de broke… Read More

    The Register says that someone told them that they heard May 2008 will bring us 3G iPhones

    Telefonica, or at least a leaker within it, seems to know something the rest of us have been wondering about since the middle of summer: When, oh when will we see a 3G iPhone? The answer is less than a year from the launch of the current 2.5G version. According to the Register, a SevenClick exec, who heard it from Telefonica, who heard it from Steve Jobs pool boy, who heard it from Bill… Read More

    Apple is in yr IMEI, stealing yr stocks

    Uneasy silence has confirmed that Apple takes your IMEI — essentially your phone’s identifying number — every time you use the stocks application. While I’m sure this is just for purposes of — actually who knows why they do it. Most folks are suggesting that Apple is storing our stock picks somewhere in its hypergalactic vaults, which holds about as much water… Read More

    Y'all can get yore iPhone canceled out here, ayup


    Out in Clearwater, Florida, they know how to convince you to give up a mildly overpriced phone with a ravenous following and many cutting edge features: tell everyone to come on in here and get that thing cancelled! This sign seems to suggest that this Verizon store will “cancel” your iPhone and replace it with something even more exciting, like a Treo or a RAZR. Could this be true? Read More

    Whip Out The Tinfoil Hats, The iPhone Phones Home

    Apple’s much loved iPhone has a hidden feature, and it’s not going to be welcomed by everyone: it phones home. According to 9 to 5 Mac, the iPhone sends the users IMEI number, IP address and stock quote preferences amongst a number of things via a hidden string to Apple via the Weather and Stock apps. The information could be used by Apple to build user profiles that includes data… Read More

    Drop that horrendous data plan for your iFones, but…

    Well, lookie lookie at what AT&T did for all you crazed iFones owners. They’ve given you the option to drop your data plan down to $0, which is nice, though, you lose Visual Voicemail, SMS text messaging and unlimited data (re: no more e-mail and Web). Now, I don’t own an iPhone nor do I really know what the data plans are so this could all be old news, so I implore the CG… Read More
