Does anyone know of a good countdown app that I can use in its place? I really liked the WDW theming, but I guess I won't be able to find anything close to that.

Thanks!
Did you check your itunes on the computer? It should still be there.

iPhone and subscribing to podcasts?

If I subscribe to a podcast on itunes on my computer, will my iphone automatically download new shows when they are available?

Or do I have to synch with my computer to get them?

I have the Betty Crocker app, but if you subscribe to the Taste of Home Newsletter, you will get a recipe a day, I use this site quite a lot.

Wifi question!

We put wifi in our house, and we have two computers, my iPhone, my DS' iPhone, and my iPad on it. They're not all on the wifi at the same time. The most would be two of them. My iPhone is a 3GS, and my son's is a 4G. I put in the password for the wifi, and the "three little half-circles" displayed where the "E" for edge would have been. When my son put the password in on his phone, the "E" remained. Any ideas what we may be doing wrong? Thanks!

Does he have WiFi turned on on his phone? Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and make sure it is on.

They won't download automatically. I wish they would. I think I asked the same question many pages ago.

You don't have to sync to get them. You can download them right to the phone. That's what I do. You just have to do it manually for each podcast.

Yes, the setting was turned "on", and the signal remained on Edge. His phone accepted the password, so I'm not sure what we're doing wrong. Any other ideas? Thanks!

Never mind! He got it working! He had to reset something and then do it again. We're all set now!

I'm SO glad I stumbled upon this thread! I'm a techno-newbie. We just upgraded from the cheapest phone we could get three years ago (read: free!) to the Iphone 4 when it was released. I was totally lost when I first got it, and honestly, I still am a little lost!

I'll go back and read some of the older posts and see what I can learn!!!

Thanks everyone!

I've had similar issues in the past -sometimes one of us will be connected and the other not. I've found by resetting our router it fixes the connectivity issue(??).

Resetting the router seems to fix lots of things. We always start there when there is an issue in my house. Between my DD8 and I we have Macs, PCs, a WiFi printer, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Wii and PS3 that all connect to the router at the same time.

I believe your router is limited to 253 (254 minus the router itself) connections at one time. You probably won't be hitting that one soon.

Depends what you do with it. Many applications including web browsers can open multiple connections simultaneously. And if you use any of those file sharing systems, you'd be killed by a limit that low...

At lot of the low end routers have only little memory, and they can't support much. They slowly "leak" memory and need a reboot on occasion. I ahve an older Linksys that has more memory that later models. I replaced the firmware on it that supports more configuration and I've got it set for 4096 connections...and I don't have issues at all.

Resetting worked for us, thank goodness. I was hoping we didn't hit a limit on the number of items on the router. I can't believe how fast the WiFi is...Edge was soooo slow.

A WiFi printer...I don't have one of those yet! I know what's going on my Christmas list!

WiFi is also faster than 3G which is good since we have WiFi at home at I have it at my office. Also good because though I'm on unlimited data plan, DW is not so at home she uses WiFi and it doesn't count against her limited data plan.
