      AWESOME! I want some of those toggles. I've been pondering a bluetooth toggle since my first iPhone. So, now I'll dig around and see if I can find them! THANK YOU!

      MyWiFi 4.0 - I can't remember if I really understood this. Need some clarification.

      Please correct me if I don't have it right.

      If I JB my phone with say, jailbreakme.com I can get the this wifi app and turn my phone
      into a wifi hot spot. Does this mean if I don't have an internet connection at home I can tether
      off my phone with my laptop right?

      If this is so, this wont effect my ATT bill will it? I wont get some crazy tethering charge will I?
      Also how fast will my internet connection be on my laptop?

      Depending on the answer to the above questions will determine if I jailbreak. This app will be extremely
      useful to me.

      Oh and I have unlimited data.

      yes, that's what mywi does.

      i haven't used mywi myself but it's getting awesome reviews. i'm tempted.

      i'm still using PDAnet that i use to tether through USB but it will also work in ad hoc mode (not as user friendly as mywi).

      as far as my usage, i haven't been notified about breaking my contract or anything. the only time i received a message about my data usage was when i was on vacation in a pretty rural part of south lake tahoe. apparently, i was in a service area that AT&T considered to be in the "roaming" location. they sent me a text message asking me to call customer service but i never did. nothing additional was added to my bill or anything so i just ignored it. maybe i'm on their watchlist?

      as far as data speeds, i probably get 1.3 mbs down while on 3G.

      Yeah, download speeds will depend on your location, but should be 1Mb or more. The only thing I'd say is that if you have multiple devices connected via MyWi, I would not be surprised if you drained the battery even if plugged in. Anyone have any experience with this with recent versions of MyWi?

      You should not have a problem with AT&T.

      from what i've read, the power consumption is 30% more efficient. i'm really tempted but i think i'll wait until i have to connect more than just my notebook.

      After I jailbreak my phone I can still sync my phone to Itunes like I normally do with no issues right, as long as I don't hit the restore button correct?

      Step 1 Jailbreak
      Step 2 download Cydia
      Step 3 pick my choice of apps

      Sorry this is all very new to me..

      as to your first question, yes.. restore would put it back to factory settings i believe (re-formatting it, which you don't want to do unless you want to start over completely anyway!)

      as to the second part.. yes (? it's all new to me too)


      I have a question about the camera+ app; apparently it was removed from the Apple store for non-standard use of buttons (enabling the volume buttons as a shutter button. which is AWESOME. sigh) buuut I jailbroke my phone without installing yesterday's software update (zoinks @ that timing, as i just got the phone Tuesday) yet I still can not get camera+ to work on it. thoughts? ideas? halp?!

      Question, when I DL apps in Cydia and go to winterboards to apply it to my phone, how come some
      dont load up? I go to check to see how it looks but its still the same, nothing changed.
      Is it because they aren't winterboard compatiable?

      The order in which they are listed will affect how they display sometimes too. You can drag and drop each item in winterboard to prioritize which selections to use.

      I just picked up a new iPad 64gb with wifi. Now I'm trying to figure out miwi so i can use my iPhone 4's 3g as a connection for my iPad. (:

      Edit: MiWi 4.0 was ridiculously easy to use. I'm really psyched about this iPad.

      so google just released an official iPhone app for Google Voice. If I setup a free google voice account, and i start using this app on my iPhone to make calls or texts, I am no longer using my ATT minutes/SMS, correct?

      Anyone with an iPhone have this app? I don't have an iPhone, just wondering if anyone tried this out and care to share their thoughts.

      There was a rash of blog posts on the day after the app was released, demonstrating how wonky it is. In theory, it's great. In the demo video, it's great. In reality, it isn't (and likely can't be) great in most real-world situations.

      I recently found out that a kid I went to high school with was one of the main developers for that. I downloaded the free version and all it will do is reverse any text it finds as a demo. You have to pay for actual language translation.

      Looking for an app that will remind me of birthdays from my contact list. Wish I could just set an alert in iOS as it seems simple enough.

      Why not just set them up as an event on your calendar?

      Interesting that I never noticed before but iOS automatically does this for you. Too bad you can not set a reminder for the day before or something though. Its not quite like making the event manually, but it does show up on the calendar. Problem for me at least is that I do not check my calendar very often.

      Yes you can. Open the calendar item and set the alert- you can do it up to 2 days before the event.

      Not on mine. Shows a little present icon and tells you who its for, but does not allow you to do anything to the event.

      I just tried that, added my wife's birthday to her contact info and it's like you said. I guess it's because it's not a real calendar entry.

      I guess you'll just have to create calendar entries if you want reminders. It even has you put the year they were born in for the contact entry but it doesn't just do the math and show how old they are, that's lame.

      Related to birthdays, iCal doesn't do well with all-day events overall. I've tried having my phone remind me about all-day events like this, and I get woken up when the clock strikes midnight. It'd be far better if the app had a default midday reminder time for all-day events and birthdays.

      If I'm honest, though, I really should be looking in my calendar at least once a day. But I don't.

      I'm looking for an app that lets me turn on/off my radios without having to go into the settings menus.

      Just like an on/off for the cell, wifi and bt radios. Free would be great, but I'll pay a few bucks if it's a good app.

      EDIT: I'm not jailbroken.
