Update : Dev Team confirmed the release date for Software Unlock. Please steer away from x-sim unlock techniques. 2.11.07 is the best baseband for now. 2.28 baseband users : solution pending.

Apple’s iPhone 2.2 Firmware certainly sports some cool new features but is it worth taking the risk and¬†updating given the fact that it disrupts the ONLY available unlocking technique ( Sim Unlock ) ?

I have some iPhone 3G’s (bought from Canada) at my disposal and I first updated one of my iPhone 3Gs directly to firmware version 2.2 since I …

3G, battery, iPhone 3G, Review »

Mophie Juice Pack is an absolute godsend given the fact that my iPhone 3G repeatedly gave up on me on numerous occassions. What good is all the technology if it cannot last for one day ( I mean 9 AM to 9PM at the least!) with regular usage (Emails, Camera, Apps, Safari, GPS) ? I started using the iPhone less frequently when I am on the go ( on a trip, …) trying to preserve the battery but doesn’t it defeat the purpose of owning the BEST gadget on planet …

UPDATE : PDANet sneaked in an update ( v1.40) which restricts the functionality unless you fork out $29.99!
Temporary Solution :

Download PDANet 1.33
SSH that into your phone and drop pdanet1.33.deb into /var/root/
Using MobileTerminal (get if off Cydia if you have to) type in “su,” then type in your password, which is “alpine” by default. Then type in the command dpkg -i /var/root/pdanet1.33.deb. Wait for it to get done.
Then restart/respring your iPhone

I have been pretty busy lately – final semester of Masters and you can imagine! I finally took …

2.1, 3G, iPhone 2.0, iPhone 3G »

iPhone 2.1 firmware released today (Friday, Sept 12) greatly enhances your overall iPhone expereince, very close to the pre 2.0 updates (last stable update was 1.1.4!). If you are a legit iPhone user, there is no point holding off since iPhone 2.1 is not easily jailbreakable yet. So, what are those amazing features 2.1 has brought? Absolutely not NEW but a VERY stable system altogether! A quick run down of my experiences so far :

3G, ATT, GPS, iPhone 3G, iPhone Plan »

Yeah, they did it with iPhone 1.0 and now with the latest iPhone 3G. They remain the exclusive carrier of the iPhone 3G despite Apple ending revenue sharing agreement with ATT over iPhone to reach the masses, they now want to hop-in on the extra revenue by charging a ransom for 3G network access in a not-so 3G rich America.
As of today (June 9th, ’08), only 285 metropolitan areas have ATT’s 3G access in the US and they expect $30 for Unlimited 3G data plan ($45 for biz. users), that …
