  1. iLove my iPhone says

    AND WHERE IS THE VIDEO RECORDING FOR NON 3GS USERS WEVE HAD THIS SINCE THE ORIGINAL JAILBREAK. THIS IS A SOFTWARE FIX, NOT A HARDWARE SELLING POINT. SHAME ON APPLE

    • I agree.

    • It says “stream videos” is that not like a webcam? That makes it sound like we will have video cuz we know they not talkin about flash.

    • if you want videos with 15 fps use Cycorder. The cam in 3G can’t do more fps so the videos look horrable.

    • Go to my YouTube page (search “smith13433”) and look at “Jim Jones Fight”. I shot that video with cycorder and they played it on our news ch.(he got charged with beatting up the kid) and it looked like any other video recorder. Apple needs to step it up.

  2. what do u mean by >> CalDav ??

  3. Maybe I’m just a bit more dense than usual this morning, but would someone please explain to me why tethering is such a great thing??

  4. Where is sms forwarding??

  5. Hi Brooke,

    Is the Firmeare 3.0 compatible with the old iPhone ? The iPhone 2G – NOT 3G ?

    Just wondering…. I thought that they will no longer update the old iPhone…

  6. tethering means that you can connect your laptop to your iphone and access the internet via the iphone’s 3G/Edge connection.

    It’s been available through jailbreak for ages now, using Pdanet, which is an fantastic app and it’s all included in your tariff.

    However now Apple have hooked onto it for the new firmware, Downside is their networks are now going to charge for it. In the UK the charges are a complete rip off!!!

  7. Hi guys!! What updatea does the 2g has with firmware 3.0? Thanks

  8. you forgot having 11 pages on springboard instead of only having 9
