only took apple 3 generations to add mms to their device as well as a landscape keyboard :)
I have used palm os, winmobile (pro and standard) and BB.......
BB's will never kill the iphone, but then again, I like being able to customize the UI, change batteries, etc :)

For whatever reason, and it's certainly not because they can't do it at launch, Jobs seems to prefer to dole out 'extras' on 'his' schedule rather than laying it all out there at the beginning... I've owned a wide variety of Apple products since they began operations, have a dozen or so collectibles, and that policy has always been pretty much SOP... Don't necessarily agree with rationale, but that's Jobs/Apple...

Customize the UI? I've jailbroken both my iPhone & iTouch & have nearly unlimited ability to change most anything... >:D

Battery change out? It's a bit of a PITA, but I've done it...

Bad things happen to people who frequent Fricker's...

Yes... I have a BB as well - familiar with crackberry.com, but haven't, as of yet, taught BB any new tricks... ;D

And, lemme add my congrats to those of 2Much & Gold regarding attainment of full membership! :cheers:

Mine is jailbroken too. It's SO easy to do (literally 12 seconds by clicking on a button on a website) and opens up worlds of opportunity. There's really nothing any phone can do that you can't do on a jailbroken iPhone. I have multitasking with Palm pre-esque 'Cards' motif, customizable IU, widgets, etc. I have google voice on there and even an app that turns my phone into a wifi hotspot that shares my 3G network data with any wifi device (laptop, ipod touch ,etc).

Here's a pic of my lockscreen and one of my many themes

very nice :thumb:

I think we can all agree that there isn't a perfect phone.

I went from palm os, to winmo, to BB and wish I could combine the three platforms :)

Yep, call me lazy... But do you have the URL please? If not, I'll remove my lazy hat and do a search...

Thanks ::)

Down the file. plug in your iphone, run the patch and click "make it ra1n". your phone will reboot and be jailbroken, then give you the option to download cydia and rock - two new app stores for JB apps.

I'd suggest making a backup in itunes before, just in case you want to unjailbreak someday.

And if you want to keep it jailbroke, be careful not to update to new Apple iPhone/Touch software via iTunes immediately upon announcement[/color]...

Cydia & Rock will advise when there is a solution to deal with the new software, or Google 'jailbreak iphone 3.1.3' to stay abreast of the action......

Some, but not all jailbroken iPhones/Touches can now be updated to iPhone OS 3.1.3 courtesy of sn0wbreeze or redsn0w...

BTW, blackra1n, imo, was an exceptionally easy way to break 3.1.2 - some of the others take considerably more effort... :p
