    hey this hints towards them releasing 2.0 on the 9th right? I mean we need 2.0 for this to work with our iPhones.

  2. Hi, ive got a question. I dont have an iTunes account as im from Argentina and that country is not available when you register. The iPhone will be here but Argentina is not on the list when you select your country when opening an account.

    Does this mean i wont be able to download apps from the appstore???

    Thanks a lot to anyone that can help me,


  3. Does anybody know if this is going to effect my jailbreaked iPhone?

    Will this work with an iPhone that is jailbreaked?
