So, a friend of mine… “Steve” we’ll call him, uses an iPhone 3G as an iPod touch. Never had a problem with it. Basically, the advantage of this is that he has access to a camera. Nonetheless, before iOS4, there was no activation requirement on these units that would prevent you from using the device without a SIM. Such is no more. After upgrading to iOS4, he was locked out of his phone; and without AT&T here in Montana, he was pretty screwed. I gladly took his phone home as a project and jailbroke it back to 3.1.3 for him again.
So, if you’ve been developing for iPhone and such you know how much it sucks to start xcode every time you want to test webpages or show off your new app. It gets downright frustrating. So, to link to the program in your dock; navigate to the following path. You can start this and select “keep in dock”, or drag it down there yourself:
So, a buddy of mine has had this iPod forever… and throughout snowboarding and such, the screen got progressively worse. At first it was a couple of lines, and it got all the way to the point of the first photo… so bad you couldn’t pick a song. To make a long story short, I made my first order from iFixIt (always used their guides, but never ordered from them) and these guys are great! I don’t know how big they are, but they have that small company feel and their salesmen are incredibly knowledgeable. Safe to say I will be purchasing my apple replacement parts through them every time I can. iFixIt kicks serious ass.
Whaddup kids, Mic-B here back with another slick fix. I had one of the many 360’s I’ve fixed from the RRoD come back to me with the dreaded E74 error. I had already previously done the X-Clamp fix on this beast; so voiding the warranty wasn’t a problem — sadly, out the window was sending it to Microsoft as well. I was already in knee deep on this box, so I had to finish it out right.
Hey guys and gals,
There was a problem I ran into recently with an iPhone where the subscriber had purchased a data package for their SIM card, but was not able to access any data-related features. In a WAP browsing phone, everything seemed to work; but as soon as the SIM was swapped to the unlocked iPhone, the functions were limited to calling and SMS. With WiFi enabled, everything ran great. With a little searching and some deduction, I came across the APN setting for the cellular network.
