    Default 3g Settings in 2.0 Firmware
    As if there is any doubt that the 3g iPhone is coming soon. Some 3g settings have been found in the 2.0 firmware.



    The settings page was found in the latest beta release of 2.0 firmware. IF you don't know, 3g drains cell phone batteries very quickly. Don't worry in an effort to save some battery life Apple has included a setting to turn 3g off, and use normal slow edge instead.

    So with your 3g iPhone you'll have a choice, murder your battery or surf at 1995 speeds.

    That means its using the same firmware. Which means its already possible to jailbreak it.

    Hmmm. Gonna be hard not to get one.

    no, the phone had to be modified to fit the larger 3g chip

    This is an awesome feature for those of us without 3G coverage to turn it off. It really increased the battery life of my LG CU500 off.

    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.

    So this confirms that the 3G iphone will be out in June, because thats when this 2.0 software update is supposed to be released. Think its a good idea to sell my iphone on ebay now, before the value of the phone decreases, considering we are about a month away from the new iphone

    Wow, some people are awfully stupid here. Just because they release the same software for a device doesn't magically make it have that feature. Every version of Windows includes support for A Laptop Battery, but just because you install Windows XP that doesn't mean you can unplug your computer and walk around. Go ahead, try it, I know you are curious now. I will wait....


    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. What people, okay, not normal people, either way, don't understand is that the current hardware can't support 3G, there is no "magic" to make this happen, period. If you want 3G, you need a new iPhone, period.

    Yeah. I could care less about 3G (no coverage where in my area) but it's nice that you have the option to turn it off to save battery, much like how you can turn off wifi.

    I'm glad we at least know now that it's official, I can't wait to get my hands on one of the 3g iPhones.
