    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?

    :thumbsup2 Thx a mint, scoot241 - works like a charm! :cool1:


    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, :eek: :scared1: :faint: I felt so terrible for you and was amazed at your bounce-back attitude. You would have heard a lot worse coming from me :rotfl:

    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 :rolleyes:

    cheers,
    :flower3:

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

    Does anyone have a particular one of these that they like? I'm thinking of getting one for DAP. Between checking in at home, Facebooking, taking pics, etc., I know I'll be draining the battery pretty quickly & don't want it to die mid-day.

    Thanks!

    I just saw a device at Walmart that plugs into the bottom of the iPhone to give it additional battery time. It appears to be a re-chargable external battery source.

    Don't you know, this is Apple - Steve Jobs can get a new liver but you can't change the battery in your iPhone :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Hi all!

    I am thinking about upgrading from the original iPhone to the 3Gs next week. I was wondering for those of you who did the same, what you did with your old phone? Did you sell it on ebay?

    Thanks.

    I just got this. It seems to work fine. It take about an hour or so to charge it from the battery.

    Actually you can change the battery in your iPhone. It just takes a minor operation only slightly less complex than the one Steve had. :goodvibes

    Not sure if you tried the obvious yet...go to Applications on your iphone in itunes, and hit Sync? :confused3 :confused: :goodvibes

    This happened to me yesterday when I upgraded to firmware 3.1.2. What happens with 3.1.2 and iTunes version 9, there is a new feature that allows you to arrange the apps the way you want thru itunes. When you do this, plug in your phone, click the iphone, then click the applications tab, you need to check off the apps you want

    I do not have an applications tab that I can find.
    I tried to reset all my network settings in general and that did not work either.

    kat, when your iPhone is plugged into your computer, in iTunes on the lefthand side, under Devices, you should see your iPhone. Click on that.

    Along the top of the screen there are a bunch of tabs. Choose the Applications one. As bsbrady posted, you have to choose which app you want - check off all the ones you want.

    Then Sync them using the button at the bottom right handside of iTunes, in the gray area, beside where it shows you how much room you have left on your iPhone.

    Hope this helps :goodvibes

    cheers,
