      Is it the actual jailbreak, or something from the Cydia store, like Installous. That one slowed mine down to a crawl.

      Anyone get tagged?

      http://www.macrumors.com/2012/02/04/...monthly-usage/

      It seems that ceiling has decreased significantly over the past few months, at least for some regions. John Cozen reports that he received his top 5% data usage warning after reaching only 2.1GB of data for January.

      "I received a message during my last billing cycle, warning I was in the top 5% of my region and would experience reduced data speeds next time I reach that level of data use. I immediately checked my data usage on the AT&T iOS app. 2.1 GB. Less than I expected considering AT&T offers a 3GB plan for $30 a month. The same amount I’ve paid for the unlimited data plan since signing up with them many years ago. AT&T no longer offers an unlimited data plan, anyone still on it has been grandfathered in."

      Cozen contacted AT&T to make sure it wasn't a mistake, and after several back and forth exchanges, it seems clear that it wasn't a mistake. The AT&T representatives seemed to confirm that 2.1GB did fall in the 5% range and the only option to avoid throttling was to move to a tiered plan.

      Looks like I've gotten the pinch too. I'm not even jailbroken but I stream a lot of stuff. Weaksauce.

      Anyone know if Verizon fixed the simultaneous talk/data issue yet? LTE? That's the deal breaker for me.

      Hm, seems to be working just fine now for me. Must've been a hiccup. I thought it was weird since I hadn't received any warning messages.

      One way or another they get you, it's a shame w/ just as more and more cloud based services become available.

      Waking up isn't necessarily the only point.

      My wife has one of the iHome models. She enjoys playing music while she gets ready in the morning.

      Yeah, the phone would wake me up, but I turn it off at night. Basically I would just be using the dock to play music and charge the phone while using the alarm clock function separately. Obviously it would be cheaper to buy a $10 alarm clock, which I might end up doing because it seems like there are very few good options out there.

      So my AT&T 4S sucks balls at my office and regardless of full or almost full bars of service, I can't get apps and webpages to load. Wifi is restricted here and I can't get on. Is there some sort of gadget or device I can buy and easily transport to enable better service?

      Ok, so I'm a long time Verizon dumbphone customer here and I'm close to caving and getting the Iphone due to the incentives. However, I am totally torn between waiting for the 4S to become cheaper or getting the 4 currently as is.

      I really do not give a damn for apps that much. I simply want a phone that handles txt messaging better, has a maps feature, and can do some emailing. However, what does matter to me are call quality and battery life. (this blows on the iphone). I've heard that the two-antenna setup on the 4S is superior to the 4. However, would you guys consider it a dealbreaker?

      Please let me know your thoughts.

      Honestly, I'd wait for the 4S to go down if you really don't want to pay the 200. My 4 feels so slow lately and it will only get worse with software updates.

      The iP4 is a great phone. It just happens that the iP4S is faster with a few serious upgrades. If you already had an iP4, I'd recommend you wait.

      Also, I know it's easy to say "I don't need any apps", but that's just being naive. You'll get them and use them or delete the ones you don't like. I've only got about 45 apps or so, but ~85% of them have been free and are really helpful

      Yelp - find new places, directions, menus, etc.
      CardMunch - take photos of business cards and store them in a database
      Dragon Dictation - speech to text
      Golf LogiX - course layout and GPS distance finder
      ShopSavvy - price comparison and store gift ideas
      Qrafter - read QR codes
      PhotoSynth - scrollable panoramic photo stitch
      Strava Cycling - GPS Map route tracking and speed display
      RedBox - steal movies from your car while the mouth breathers browse
      US Bank - deposit checks by taking a picture


      Call Quality is almost certainly related to your network. Totally depends on your geographic location. In Portland, OR I can drive at low speeds in my Miata with the top down and the person on the other end can't tell I'm driving. I dial calls from inside elevators, continue talking while going down stairwells in parking garages, etc. Great reception from Verizon. It's not so great in other cities I visit.

      I don't think battery life on the iPhone is any different than any other phone. Control the programs running and understand what kills battery life and make adjustments accordingly.

      Odd that you mention that. I still haven't done the recent upgrade b/c of all the complaints on battery management issues, but my phone occasionally stops completely while trying to load a program or scroll between pages. I'm sure 10yrs ago, the "speed loss" wouldn't' have been noticeable, but today it is definitely slow occasionally. At least I don't' have to worry about my phone platform not working with the latest upgrades like Androids do.

      I restored my iP4 last night because the home button quit working on me sporadically. It was pissing me off.

      I haven't noticed any battery issues, but when I first updated to 5.0.1 I had lots of wifi problems that seem to have worked themselves out. Obviously everything has always been a lot smoother and faster on my iPad 2, but with these recent updates the margin between the two has certainly increased. Honestly, if I didn't have the iPad 2 to compare the 4 to, I'd still be perfectly happy with it. It's only frozen up on me once, and rarely an app will crash when opening. While you are very right about not having to worry about updates being compatible, they definitely show the age of the hardware, which is why I don't think getting the 4 right now would be a great idea. Who knows though, somebody coming from using a dumbphone may never have a problem with the relatively small speed decreases.

      As of less than 12 hours since doing it and restoring from the cloud and finally restarting the thing, yes. So far, it is working as it should. I made and cancelled two trips to the apple store today because I was getting fed up with it. Seems fine now though.

      While it's not an iPhone, it still runs iOS, so here I go.

      I've got a 1st gen iPod touch running 3.1.3. The device boots and works, however there is no wi-fi and the home button doesn't work, I believe it got wet.

      Is there a work around (I looked in settings), like some sort of swipe, or a jailbreak tweak I could install to not have to use the home button? I want to use the device to listen to music every now and then, could care less about the apps. It's 32GB so I could put a decent amount of data on the thing, I'd rather not scrap it.

      Oh, and the vibrate function on my iPhone 4 is intermittent. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn't, and it's annoying as hell because I hardly ever have my phone on "loud".

      Called Apple, they're not interested in fixing it for free, which sucks. However, I'm up for an upgrade in March. I think I'll wait until this summer to see what's coming around the corner.

      Erik! what's up!
      Yes, not sure how well it works on 3.1.3, but try zephy. It allows you to rotate apps by dragging from either side, and you can swipe up to reveal the multi tasking bar on the homescreen.

      not sure how people feel about hacked jb apps, but instead of paying $3 to try it out, install the xsellize source to try it out.

      Might want to remove that link. There's another app that u hold the status bar and it goes home. Ship the iPod to me and I will fix for a small fee.

      quickly scanning, i saw a 3g for $40 used.

      I'm sure there are times it can get better pricing. :shrug:

      I just picked up an iPhone 4S yesterday, but I need help importing my facebook contacts to my address book. I know that facebook discontinued that feature after people threw bitch fests, but is there a way that I can take my facebook friends list and send it to my address book?

      They didn't discontinue it. Go to facebook app>Friends>arrow on top right corner will go to sync

      It doesn't work. I tried that method day one, but it will only sync existing contacts in iPhone's address book to your friends list. So basically I have to have entrees already for all of my Facebook contacts with names and emails then it can update them... PITA. I even tested it and it didn't work at all.

      I saw the Mozilla home page option by using grease monkey and facebook sync, but apparently that does not working anymore due to the OMG facebook is selling our phone numbers conspiracy.

      Tons of threads on getting it into DFU mode, even with cracking the case open or doing some wild software perversions.

      The questions is, utilizing the accessibility menu under the General settings tab, can you put the phone into DFU mode using the on-screen "home button."

      If you're not familiar with this go to:

      Home>General>Accessibility>AssistiveTouch> ON

      This will give you a small button(movable) on the home screen that pulls up four options including a home button that will allow you to use your phone to 99% of its functionality w/ out the use of the physical home button.

      I have tried entering it into DFU mode a few times using the onscreen home button but it seems as though it's not working. I'd like to know if it is in fact possible, and my specific phone is just acting crappy.

      Thanks!
