    Default Sold Iphone
    I just sold my 8gb for $300 on ebay four days ago, cracked screen and all. But now i'm stuck using my old Razr but still on the iphone data plan. Not sure about buying a 16gb (but apple doesn't have any) or just wait it out for the 3g. I'm going thru withdrawals here man . . .

    Rebooted yet? Alright. The iPod Touch has been running the same "Version" as the iPhones for as long as it has been out, that doesn't mean it can suddenly make calls.

    Except Apple create the software for their hardware, so they don't support anything 3rd party. Microsoft create OS'es for all kinds of devices, so they include support for all kinds of components.

    Apple are working on 3G most likely because they are going to include it. It makes sense to as its an obvious upgrade. But it has its downsides (battery life, bulkiness etc.)

    Wow, I'm surprised Apple put that in there, knowing someone would eventually find it

    "3g murders battery life" - is this because a 3g Iphone will be used "MORE" or because "EDGE" stays connected so damn long trying to download one simple web page the phone overheats and you simply never use it again... therefore increasing battery life by not using it?????????

    3g probably downloads a web page in 1/10th the time.. enabling MORE web page download vs battery drain = more web page browsage.. = more actual usage = more precieved battery drain when in the end each MB download might use less battery simply because the phone gets it done MUCH faster.

    Beta testers... this would be a good study.

    I know my phone gets all hot sometimes just looking at weather.com

    I just wanna take the time to say haha to all the people who brought there iPhone within the last 3 months or so. Who cares if you paid $200 dollars cheaper. I had my 8GB iPhone the first week it came out; so, I pretty much had a year to enjoy my phone. I have faith in Apple and I believe this phone will be worst every penny. $500 deposit back from AT&T along with my $100 rebate from Apple. Yeah, I got the 3G iPhone already!!! q:-p..

    OMG, I un-pluged it and it didn't power down. Could walk around with it and everything...wait, that's coz I have a laptop. Haha.
    Damn straight. Finally someone stood up to the noobs. Haha, was going to do it myself, but would have never been able to put it in such good words.

    Why would Apple re-write the iPhone OS just for the next gen, when it has only just added the support of 3G and a few odds and ends?
    Its the same thing. There writing it so the OS is compatible with all generations of iPhones, making it easier to keep everyone up to date.

    Matt.


    P.S. If maybe 2.0 supports the proposed GPS and I put 2.0 on my 1st gen iPhone will I be able to use GPS on it? Bahahahah!

    Well technically with the appstore coming out. GPS on 1st gen iphones isn't far fetched as long as apple lets developers use the dock port. Like with the PSP hacking community. All it would take is a gps chip and an app released through the store to enable you to have true GPS. Honestly the same could be said about having 3G. Although I'm not sure apple would let someone make a 3G chip for the iPhone dock port seeing as it would make some people not upgrade. heh.

    One more thing. They have different versions of iPhone extended batteries that also plug into the port. It's actually kind of cool. And with the 3G phones coming out this may be a very nice accessory. You don't have to use it all the time but if you know you are going to be away from an outlet a long time you can carry it with you (like an extra laptop battery or even cell phone battery back in the day when you could change those out............by yourself...........) and never have to worry about battery life and 3G.

    Some links:

    FastMac iV iPhone Battery Pack - Includes a light (for seeing in the dark and taking pictures in dark places) and ability to charge other devices while plugged into iPhone. Even charge another iPhone... Can also plug into dock in order to charge both the iPhone and pack without removing. (pre-order status)

    Kensington Mini Battery Pack - Doesn't last as long as the previous but is very small and only sticks out the bottom instead of adding to the back.

    Kensington Battery Pack and Charger - The full blown brother to the previous model. This guy would be more for carrying around in a bag (like with your laptop) and plugging in when you can sit down somewhere but don't have access to an outlet.

    Richard Solo Battery Pack - This one is like the mini pack above but a bit larger. Good for keeping in your car or a backpack just in case. Also has a longer life than the mini.

    iPowerRush - The super cheap version of extended batteries. Lol... This thing probably works but you have to buy 6 AAA batteries to put inside it to charge your iPhone. After a few uses it would end up costing you more than just buying one of the other products but I figured I'd give the option.

    Also you will probably be able to use your phone's 3G capability to give your laptop internet anywhere. (you can already do this with edge).

    Yes but the new iPhones will have extended battery life (would be stupid if it didn't). The old phones wont be able to hand the power demand... And even if you got a battery pack for the 1st gen, you would have no where to plug it as the port is already in use by the 3G adapter.

    Ohh you misinterpreted what I was saying. The battery packs were for people worried about the new 3G iPhones. If my 3G adapter for 1st gen iPhones idea ever came to fruition (which I very much doubt it would) they could include it inside of a batter pack also. Making it able to charge and have 3G capability. But like I said I doubt any of that will happen.

    Having said that. Some rumors are saying the battery won't be extended much more than it already is. But even if they do extend it on the 3G iPhone then it will not really do anything since 3G takes more to use and keep on. And these products were made for Edge users to begin with so the same people will buy it for the 3G model regardless of apples stated battery usage (which is never on point).

    Thats before they found out if they released it with it, it would triple sales. But seriously even if they did upgrade the battery it would be nice to know turning it off saves battery. I remember they used to stay if you were in airplane mode it would save the battery.
    Maybe Apple has upgraded the battery. I'm sure that we laymen don't have all the facts yet...
