  • 3.0 June 17th. Or Today.


    3.0 chatter has been going on a while now (and is already jailbroken and officially has Cydia ready and released for it, you faithful hackery types), and WWDC marked the official date announcement - June 17th (pf.edit, thanks guys - not the 19th). Developers were given out the gold master today - bye bye betas.

    We've already been over most of the 3.0 improvements, and Apple tossed us a couple bones as well:
    • MMS supported from 29 carriers as of game day, although AT&T will get that to us "later this summer". Thanks, AT&T.
    • Safari has got some solid speed increases - JavaScript 3x faster, HTML 5 support, HTTP streaming a/v, and auto-fill (nice).
    • Tethering supported from 22 carriers. Of course AT&T won't be on that list, but are sure they'll get to it soon.
    • You can now RENT and PURCHASE movies from the iPhone through iTunes, including audiobooks.

    iPod Touch users save your pennies - the upgrade will be free for iPhone users, but $9.95 for iPod Touch folks, same as 2.0 was.

      I don't think Apple will change anything - unless, of course, they are given a good reason to change the BB.

      I've just noticed on the O2 website that if you want to tether you iphone, eith the new 3.0 software, you'll need a "Bolt on" for 14../month, that will give you access to 5000 hotspots ....etc.

      What a rip off, is it me or are we paying twice ?????

      Seems like no one has answered my question outright, what happens if you install the 3.0 firmware on a first gen iPhone, can you unlock it, can you jailbreak the gold master version and does it update the baseband?

      You can only keep the unlock you have now by upgrading to 3.0 and not restoring. It does not upgrade the baseband. The GM has not been jailbroken yet, well at least not publicly available.

      Everyone charfges extra for tethering. I'm with T-Mobile and their tethering and HSDPA option is an extra 5/month over W'n'W basic, Of course, with my discounts I only pay just over 20 all in...

      I don't understand here about tethering, how would the mobile companies know you have actually tethered your iPhone to your laptop?
      I can understand if you have a limit but 3GB a month is still alot. What if your on an unlimited data plan? Nokia and Samsungs allow you to tether without a data plan, I know because I've done it when my internet was down and I really needed to restore my iPhone lol.

      Yesterday, I waited and waited, watching the live feeds from WDCC 2009, to see when 3.0 would be out. Wham, it appeared, 17th June 2009, could I wait any longer, NO!

      So, as usual the trusted modmyi users came up with a solution 3.0 build #7A341 was discovered. I was up till 03.20am hours waiting for it to download and then installed it. Wham, it was well worth the wait.

      I said to myself I would sacrafice, for the time being, being able to jailbreak for the benefits of 3.0 (although it is nice to have everything.

      I now have the copy and paste, forward text messages (all those jokes, that I could never forward), the use of MMS and Text is really nice. iTunes having the facility to download a movie or show is very nice, you tube looks better, the landscape look for notes, text, email...etc is really nice.

      The only problem I'm having is getting the MMS to send, I'm on a UK (non-yellowsn0w) phone. Has anybody else had this problem with O2 UK

      Also when the offical release comes out, will and how will the update be installed i.e will itunes recognise that the current version, is not the full version and automatically update

      Hmmm that doesn't sound too bad as it's 10(~$20) a month now for unlimited data and access to wifi hotspots around UK. So you'd be only paying an extra 4 a month, right?

      Rumour has it that you will have to download and install the final manually as iTunes won't recognise it as an upgrade.

      How is youtube better? Do you finally get full quality over 3G?

      No, you get unlimited data on a standard iPhone Tariff - the 14/month is in addition to that.

      hello, I just read 15 pages and I still do not understand
      some things, and I wanted to ask others:

      I am Spanish, if I file under and what the facilities will have
      os 3.0 in Spanish?
      if you install the iPhone 3.0 GM can not go back to a
      previous version?
      is really the final version?

      thanks friends
