Fstream/Live 365

to the collective newbies!

Anyone know the workaround for avoiding the Live 365 VIP membership so that I can listen to Dis Radio? I remember someone writing in to the show about it...but can't find the episode...anyone happen to remember?

I'm using Fstream but it consistently cuts out after 5-10 minutes so it's a hassle to keep having to re-connect. Anyone use Fstream more successfully?

cheers,

I've had trouble with Fstream also, but I think the latest version works a bit better. WunderRadio works very well, but it's not a free app.

The link for DISRadio to put into either Fstream or WunderRadio is:

You can set up your numeric passcode. IIRC I've taken a call while I had it on, after the call the screen went dark. I put it on at first but then don't bother anymore since it's an extra hassle. However, reading that someone here had theirs snatched away while on public transit makes me think I should use it more often

cheers,
Yes, that was me that had mine snatched from my hands while riding the L. The fact that I had the passcode set on it at least gave me a little bit of hope that the bad guys weren't just scrolling through all my information. My only regret is that I had it set to a 5 minute delay - I have it on immediate on my new iPhone. Sure, it's easier for me to not have it lock every time, but I never really thought about a bad person actually stealing it from me before. Now, I'm doing everything I can to be prepared if someone steals it again. It's sad that I have to think that way. Back up often, lock your phone.

If you are concerned about someone stealing your phone and going through your contacts, email and calendar, another option is to sign up for a GMail account and sync your phone with Google for your mail, contacts and calendar.

If your phone gets stolen, log in to your Google account stop the sync. The information goes away on your phone. This only works if you are "pushing" the data from Google to your phone. If you "download" the data, then the data is resident on your phone and this wouldn't work.

newbie

I have only had my iPhone a few weeks and most everything works fine. But there is one problem and I hope that one of you experts can help. I set up my email to sync with Outlook. My email is AOL. I love being to sync with my Outlook on my laptop as it is so much easier for these old eyes and fat fingers to add my contacts on the laptop. I got the iPhone to be able to get my email and access the internet while on our vaction to WDW. I was waiting to hear about our DVC resale purchase. And a quote from our Travel Agent on a DCL cruise to Alaska. Of course all this had to be done on the one week we were at WDW. So the easy answer was an iPhone. To make a long story short I received all the messages, but could not reply. It kept telling me invalid email address. I even tried emailing myself and it didn't work. Any suggestions? My DD is my iPhone expert, but she can't figure it out my email problem either. TIA.

I have already synced my music from my iPod and downloaded several apps. Love The Weather Channel, Bejeweled and Facebook. It is sitting on my desk at work so I can listen to me iPod...and the Podcast.

I'm a little confused. Do you use Outlook on your PC to get your AOL mail? When you set it up on your iPhone what type of account did you create it as, AOL?

Also, what error message do you get and when in the process do you get it? After you click send?

If you are trying to send mail but can't, most likely there is a problem with the SMTP account. I checked AOL's web site and they state their SMTP server is smtp.aol.com

Check your iPhone's settings. Go to SETTINGS then MAIL, CONTACTS, CALENDARS. Choose the AOL account the scroll down to OUTGOING MAIL SERVER. The SMTP entry should read smtp.aol.com. (no dot at the end of com)

If you are receiving your email from AOL then your incoming server (either POP or IMAP), as well as your user name and password, has to be correct.

Hi All,

I finally downloaded the latest update with MMS, etc. yesterday, but have been experiencing issues ever since. I had my iPhone plugged in on the charger overnight and by the time I walked out of work this afternoon it was dead. I remember reading something similar happening to another DISer on FB. What should I do?

Manda, I didn't comment at the time cuz I was catching up on the thread and didn't want to bring up an old wound. When I read it I was, I felt so terrible for you and was amazed at your bounce-back attitude. You would have heard a lot worse coming from me

When I first read about your incident, I thought about what I'd seen others use before when I was travelling. They hang their cell phones from a lanyard around their neck. Mostly used by women as it's not convenient to use a belt clip (dresses, skirts, etc.). There's prolly a sturdier model out there for the iPhone; it could just be used during your commute. Prolly not the most comfortable thing to have around your neck all the time as an iPhone is relatively, pretty big. However, if you're sitting down on the subway and holding the iPhone, it shouldn't be too bad. Any snatchers watching would prolly know they couldn't get it. Mind you it might give your head quite a jolt if they tried to get it but that extra seconds to wrest it from your hands and the startle to the snatcher would prolly make him bolt unsuccessfully. Just a thought

cheers,

The battery in the iPhone is not easily exchanged. There are several versions of add-on batteries for those that need extended battery time.
